Leeroyo

New to demon hunter and my dps is BLEEEEH

6 posts in this topic

Hi guys!

My name is Leeroyo! from Frostmourne and I'm new to the demon hunter class after taking a expansion off, going from Rogue to DH seems to be a difficult transition because I wanted to mobility trade off (but it feels like Rogue are still way more mobile haha)

Anyway my spec with a 835 Item level:
Fel Mastery - 99
Prepared -100
Bloodlet - 102
Soul Rending - 102
Momentum - 106
Master of the Glaive - 108
Fel Barrage - 110

I'm going for the stats recommend by icy veins for Havoc demon hunters. However, this is where all the list of questions come.

Is this spec the optimal spec to maximise damage? 
I was thinking of using demon blades just so I don't have to spam demon bite as much but this makes it a little more reactive then using demon bite.

What is the dps rotation for demon hunters for single target dps? I've been trying to follow to recommended by icy veins on DH page.


What is the Multiple target dps rotation for demon hunters? This one I'm not as worried about as I hit 600k dps normal on 3 targets.

When I throw my glaive with bloodlet, do I need to wait till it stops ticking to refresh it? will I lose dps? 

Momentum...I understand you get the buff and you cast all you abilities to get the maximum dps but is there anyway to have more constant dps? or is Momentum just outweighs any use of nemesis?

Cheers guys!

Hopefully someone can help.  :S

Personally I have found the build they recommend and its reliance on demon blades to be horrible for DPS. Slowly waiting for your auto-attacks to build fury, using demon blades, while fighting a raid boss...rather than being able to hit demon bite and actively gather fury means less fury, which means less Chaos Strike or Annihilation which means less over all DPS. 

After raiding last week and this week, and using warcraft logs to compare my DPS and build (based off the Icy Veins recommendation) versus other DH's at my same iLevel, Im respeccing today back to demon bites.

Hi,

My overall gear score is at 857 at the moment. I followed the Stat priority on Icy veins (Agi>Crit>Vers>Haste>Mastery) as good as possibly. My current stats are 49,5% crit, 7% Vers, 4% Haste, 14% Mastery.

I also followed the spec recommended and played around a bit. Currently I am using:

Fel Mastery

Prepared

Bloodlet

Soul Rendering

Momentum

Master of the Glaive

Chaos Blades

I am doing decent AoE damage but when it comes to single target, my dps is around 180k - 190k which just sucks for my ilvl.

This is how I use my abilities:

"Fel Rush" in, use "Fury of the Ilidary" and "Throw Glaive" then "Vengeful Retreat" out and while in the air use second charge of "Throw Glaive". I build up Fury with "Demon Bite" then pop "Metamorphosis" and "Chaos Blades". Now I use up my fury by using "Annihilation". I use a combo of  "Fel Rush" and/or "Vengeful Retreat" in sync with "Throw Glaive" whenever possible and while on the mob I use "Demon Bite" + "Annihilation/Chaos Strike".

What am I missing here? I think I must be doing something fundamentally wrong.

Cheers for helping me out!

Im having the same problem Deathwing. According to our raid logs Im at 9% ranking of all Demon Hunters at my same iLevel. And Im pretty tight on getting the rotation down.

The problem with Momentum build is that is really dependant on how you dominate it, i believe. If you cant use it all the time it requires you wont see your dps going high... i have the same issue and now im going with nemesis build, more static, but at 863 ilvl get 220k dps is bad....

      Hi!
      I would like to ask somethng about ice lance and other procs aswell.
      To maximize dps, should you always try to get rid of Fingers of Frost procs with ice lances? And if you get flurry proc, do you want to get rid of ice lance procs before casting flurry + lance combo?
      I am not sure how much icicles and maximizing their damage output before dumping them affects your damage.
      Thank you

      Hello everyone.
       
      I've been playing hunter MM as my main for a while, but lately i've noticed that my DPS output might not be as high as it should. A couple of months ago, I tought it might be my ilvl or my mastery that was too low, but i've tried different builds and i still can't get closer to some other hunters I run into some ToS H pugs.
       
      I'm actually sitting at 938 iLvl. Don't have many BiS, but my stats are kinda high. My weapon relics are bad(low ilvl, i'm still stuck with 915 relics), and I still didn't get any other good legendary besides the Soul of the Huntmaster.
       
      So my question is: Am I doing something wrong or it's just my relics/trinkets that aren't very decent? I was happy when i get past the 1M dps mark, but now i'm stuck at that point, and I can't see to get past that.
       
      Here's my armory link: https://worldofwarcraft.com/pt-br/character/azralon/piccola
       
      Hopefully you guys can help me out on this. Thanks!

      <Cryogenic> - 4/9M - Recruiting all RDPS classes for an immediate raid spot to round out our 20m roster. Tues/Weds 7-11 SERVER. Discord/Flask/Food provided for raiders. 925++. Pst for more info!!!

      The guild was founded by a group of friends with a mission, to progress through mythic raids without the toxic environment. The guild was formed halfway through EN and despite the late start we built a solid core of raiders and down 5/7M EN before the Nighthold was released. We ended up having to break up as soon as we cleared heroic Nighthold, but we are back with a vengance here on Stormrage now. 

      CURRENT PROGRESSION:
      Emerald Nightmare -- 5/7M
      Trial of Valor -- 3/3H
      Nighthold -- 10/10H 5/10M (Guild break after Gul'dan kill)
      Tomb of Sargeras -- 9/9N 9/9H 4/9M
      MOST RECENT KILL: MYTHIC SISTERS OF THE MOON

      LOOKING FOR:
      We are currently looking for people that can commit to all raid days, who will show up prepared and not waste our time or their own time. We understand that real life happens, but we do ask that our raiders maintain at least 90% attendance and that can make sure they can raid without interruption. We don't have any strict attendance policies/punishments, however it is important for us to keep our progression as strong as possible, which relies heavily on raid wide attendance. 

      RAID TIMES:
      Tuesdays: 7-11 Server (EST) Mythic/Progression
      Wednesdays: 7-11 Server (EST) Mythic/Progression
      Thursday 8-11 Server (EST) Optional Heroic/Normal

      We also often run old content (M EN/ToV/Nightbane/Nighthold) as well as constant M+ groups throughout the day. These runs are 100% optional.

      RECRUITMENT:
      We are currently looking for all exceptional players to rebuild our raid team. We don't care about item level or prior experience. We want quality players to learn, grow, and progress with. We currently have a very strong core of raiders, but with attendance issues and people quitting wow, we are strongly shifting our focus on finding players that excel at their class/spec to round out the last few spots in our main roster. 

      CURRENT NEED:
      ALL DPS CLASSES - (ranged more so than melee)
      ALL EXCEPTIONAL PLAYERS

      EXPECTATIONS:
      We expect all raiders to come to raids prepared. This means: 
      - Having the correct gems/enchants (200 gems)
      - Class knowledge
      - Raid preparation. 
      We only raid 8 hours a week, so it is imperative that we don't waste time.All underpreforming players, regardless of rank and class, will be benched until performance can be brought up to par for the current content. We are not interested in carrying anyone, and if you cannot perform raid mechanics, then we are not the guild for you. Cauldrons and food will be provided by the guild bank when available. Everyone in the guild is taken care of, and this is done primarily through donation by our members. Our guild is a small community and we all pitch in to get things done.

      LOOT SYSTEM:
      As a guild we opt to run loot through a loot council that is run by the officers. Loot is distributed in a way that most benefits the raid team in terms of progression. Distributing loot factors are performance/attendance/role/rank (I.E. Trials are typically lower on loot priority. (Higher rank than takes priority over trial) Loot is always dished out in a way that is most beneficial to the guild is a whole, and is a completely transparent process to avoid drama. We use the add-on RClootcouncil for ease of distribution.

      PRIMARY CONTACT:
      Recruitment Officer - Riotzin (FrostyDog#155103)

      OTHER CONTACTS:
      Guild Master/Raid Leader - Dêv (CrispyD#1823) 
      Lootmaster/Co-GM - Beanboss

      Anyone listed can answer any further questions you may have pertaining to the guild as well as conduct your interview in our guild discord.

      Good day people of the forums!
      Heavy Metal Gaming (Kel'thuzad) is a 2 day, casual raid guild looking to recruit a few more as we are coming to an end to ToS, and looking ahead to the next tier. Due to RL things, we have lost a couple of our key raiders and are in need of replacing/adding to our roster.
       
      Although we are casual, the roster is made up of exceptional players, and we are looking for like-minded/skilled players that are vocal in discord, and engage with the rest of the guild.
       
      The guild and group is made up of friends that have been gaming together for 10+ years. Many of us previously raiding in Top 50 guilds during TBC, WoTLK, and Cata.
      For Legion we are AOTC for all raid content and will continue to be.
      We are looking for:
       
      DPS
      Ranged:
      Hunter
      Warlock
      Mage
      Shadow Priest
      Ele Shaman
