I feel like my dps is way to low

9 posts in this topic


Well to start off my ilvl at this moment is 859 with stats 24190 agility, 33% (6316) crit, 7% (2268) haste, 24% (10559) mastery and 1% (401) versa

The dps i pull in raids is around 220k to 260k which i feel is low for my ilvl, i try to look at what i can do diffrently by looking up guides but i can't seem to find anything, i was hoping someone here could help me?

This is a link to my latest warcraft logs

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The one thing I noticed is that I can see you have good burst at the start of fights, but on fights that are going beyond 3 minutes, with the MM Bullseye and Rapid Killing traits, your dps should be seeing a massive increase in the execute phase.

It doesn't look like it goes up at all towards the end of the fights (Minus Xavius from what I can see). You have 15 seconds where you should be pumping out an incredible amount of dps with 1m+ crits all over the place but I'm not seeing much happening towards the end of your fights.

Are you using TS on cooldown or are you saving for sub 30%? Trueshot during execute phase makes MM hunters an absolute monster on the charts - if you're not saving it for the execute phase then that's one change you need to make immediately. 

Edit: Upon further reflection, I think you need to talk to Wenyo and get them to explain to you what they do and try and follow that. Dragons and Elerethe are great fights for hunters and you didn't seem to do 

Your Three-Toed Rabbit Foot and your boots need to be replaced ASAP - you want mastery on every piece of armour and almost any trinket would sim higher than a haste trinket.

I think your dps is good (when you stay alive the whole fight :p).

You are playing with players who have 10+ ilvl for the most, and have classes than can pull out more dps than a mm hunter (and are playing pretty well according to their ranking).

This makes you feel that your dps is low, but i think you're not so bad.

Epic ranking on this log, so your rotation / optimisation seems good :

I use TS when hero pops which is mostly at the start of the fight, should i save it for execute phase?

TS should be used at the start of a fight if it's going to go for more than the 2 min 30 (correct me if I'm wrong, I almost entirely play BM these days) and then as soon as you get to the execute phase when you can get the chance to build up those stacks from Bullseye. 

TS is at it's most powerful sub 30% of a mob's HP.  

If you try it out or even if you have to save it til sub 30%, your dps will more than make up for that lack of burst at the start. Hope that helps man.

u are talking about the golden trair right? bullseye

it's at 20% :p but thanks for all the help ^^ i'll try it

Ooops! Like I said, mostly BM these days haha! But yeah, if the fight has enough time for 2 TS, save it for sub 20% and don't use it straight off cooldown, but if the fight is going to be ~3 mins or sub 3 mins, save it for execute phase.

Hope that helps man, you'll see a huge change just from that!

      Hi everyone! This is my first time playing endgame content, thanks to some veteran friends who invited me to play with them. I started with a Fury Warrior, and now that I feel comfortable, I started logging the runs. 

      Here is a part of Antorus Normal ( I accidentaly deleted the file later which included the rest of the bosses :( )

      Would anyone please take a look at it to see where I have room for improvement (probably everything) and how can I tackle those issues?

      PD: Im lacking one of the BiS leggos, and ever since I have the Convergance of Fates trinket, I lost my rotation, cant seem to find when to fire each ability now.

      <Exo> is an old guild from Dragonblight which semi-recently transferred to Stormrage in search of mythic raiders. We are a guild full of experienced raiders always looking to expand our roster. 
      We are not a world first guild nor do we aim to be. Our primary goal is to get loot and have a good time, however this still means on progression nights we do expect you to show up, put on your serious face, and kill some shit.
      Our raids are on 3 nights a week; Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday from 9pm-12 Server Time (EST). The Monday raids are optional farm/alt nights (Normal/Heroic) with Tuesday/Wednesday being mandatory progression nights.
      Currently we are in need of any competent DPS, off specs are always a welcome addition but not required. Performance and skill will be looked at above gear, experience, or class.
      We do not have a minimum item level required to join our raid team, however we will require you to catch up in our Monday farm-runs up until you are at a mythic level.
      If you have any questions or are interested in joining or trialing with us please add Pasha#1800, Java#1849 or Bushido#1988 on bnet to talk with an officer.
