Feral seeking guidance

Hey all, After my performance in raid tonight i have come here for any advice on how to improve my dps, since i first started raiding as feral i followed the feral dps guide on here and saw around a 50-90k dps increase but i still feel like i can improve a lot more as  i am not very consistent with my damage it seems to go all other the place. I believe my main issue i am having is i get energy starved a bit to much which really affects my bleeds as sometimes i just cant keep them on the target.

Worst fight of the night:

Any help would be much appreciated, i really want to improve as much as i can so i don't feel like i am letting the guild down with bad performance.

I know you posted this about two weeks ago but even looking at your more recent logs from your guild as a whole the dps is low. main things I notice is that you don't have ashamane's bite yet on the artifact which is a massive dps boost also are you using rip trait relics? your uptime is pretty good on rake and rip just make sure to apply bloodtalons on em as much as possible with SR up at all times.

Heres me in our heroic kill of nythendra last week just for a comparison.

Hi Chicimono,

With your energy problems, you are probably spamming shred too much. Go easier on it and prioritise keeping up the DoTs. This means you will have more downtime than you're used to but use that time to think about your next move (e.g. whether you should refresh Rip or Savage Roar next) and it should result in a dps gain.  

Looking at your logs, it appears you are using blood talons (the instant cast heal proc) immediately after it appears. This would explain your relatively high Rake and Shred damage with low Rip damage.

My advice here is to hold onto the proc and use it before using rip. 

In order of importance, you should use blood talons on:

1. Your Artifact ability

2. Rip

3. Rake

4. Shred

Note that Moonfire doesn't consume blood talon so if you pressed your proc too early, you can gain extra combo points through refreshing Moonfire then using the buff on a rip instead. 

With all that being said, you would still want to put out as much Rakes with the blood talon buff behind it as much as you can. A typical scenario would be having 4 combo points, use the proc, refresh rake to get 1 extra combo point then rip as these bleeds are buffed. If you don't need to refresh your Rake so early however, then use the proc at 5 combo points, followed by Rip then Rake,

I am not a high end raider and this is just my opinion, there's probably a better way to play the spec than the way I described here. 

If you have been playing it as I described here then banter was had, I wasted some time and the problem would probably lie in your gear.

Hope this helps.

      I had some great help with my Fury build from this forum, and have recently attempted to try Arms. 
       
      My guild did a full normal ToS run today, and i captured the logs. I seem to be parsing OK, but it felt clunky.
       
      Here are the logs: https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/mfLjRTWXrkb4ZxQY/#boss=-2&difficulty=0&source=20

      Any pointers would be appreciated.

      I've been playing a hunter for as long as I've been playing this game.  And for the first time in raiding, I feel like I am not doing my best and I cannot figure out why. I look at second by second rotations of top parsing hunters. In the past I was the one helping others out and writing small guides on forums...now I'm the one asking for help. 
      Here is a link to Goroth Mythic (my hunter's name is Mezäsu):
      https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/KjRvcMqbYGrp16Bt#fight=3
      I am very open to criticism and any help anyone has to offer.
      I tried going into the Discord to ask for help there but was not able to get a word in (as the helpers were busy with other people). Hoping I may have better luck here.

      Hola my lovely Warriors,
       
      im pretty new to the game and spend a lot of time checking for possible guides etc. for the arms.
      Right now im sitting at 913 GS. Pls find here the link to my stats: https://worldofwarcraft.com/de-de/character/blackhand/drakmeister
      I would love if you could help me on the following points:
      1.) Which talents are the best? I started with Lvl45 talent -> First one  and lvl 75 talent-> first one.
      I met some people who told me if i go for single target dmg like TOS is most likely then i should switch to "REND" and "Might oif titan"....
      Right now i have not found the best choices for me. Looking forward to hear your comments.
       
      2.) My stats: See on the link above my Stats. I'm kind of unable to reach more mastery to increase my damage. What do you guys suggest?
      3.) The f.king Rotation / Priority on my skills:
      i guess im doing a lot lot lot of mistakes when it comes to use my skills. Right now i play as follows:
       
      i open with Charge, followed by rend and then CS. After this im using Battle cry and Bladestorm.
      Then it comes to the usual rotation and i use CS followed by MS and filled with slam until i getr a proc for my CS. If i get it i use it and use MS after.
      i try to have rend always on the boss. ( i'm not able to hold iut because of boss movement and other stuff).
       
      YOu guys think this use of skills is ok or do you have any changes for me? am i using my priorities right? (Using CS when i get a proc followed by MS??)
      Right now my DPS at any boss is way too low and i have to improve.
       
      Please let me know you honest comments and help me to get a better arms!! :)
       
      Thank you very much in advance. Looking forward to your comments,
       
      Regards,
      Drakmeister
       
      @EDIT: Let me know if you need any additional informations!
