Need BM RDPS Help

4 posts in this topic

Hey everyone. I'm worried that my time invested in BM is for not. However, with the changes coming to MM, my thoughts are that BM may still be a viable raiding spec. I enjoy BM because of its freedom of movement.  A dead hunter does no damage, and that my motto. With that being said, I want to be sure I'm maximising my damage output. I'm currently waiting on some drops, namely trinkets, which I've been incredibly unlucky with, but other than that, I'm geming for mastery, and enchanting agi where needed. Currently, in raids, with flasks and potions, I've been ranging in dps from about 265-310, depending on the fight.  Given my gear, I feel like I should be doing more. I'm unsure if I'm hitting a ceiling with BM, or if it is something I'm doing wrong. I've been following the standard rotation posted on icy-veins, and even under normalized conditions on training dummies (no flasks etc...), under 2-3 min rotations, I've been peaking at around 270k dps. Any thoughts on this?

 

Here is a link to my armory.

Wrong motto. Nothing forces MM to take more damage, they have same mobility from the standpoint of survivability. It's totally fine to interrupt casts to avoid taking extra damage. MM is likely to do more damage anyway.

That said, your DPS seems fine.

For example, last time I was on Heroic Ursok as MM with 870+ gear, I did 292k DPS. That's with suboptimal talents and consumables (weak prepot and no pot during combat), but I'd be unlikely to do more than ~320k at that point.

Thanks for this info. I recently switched to BM from MM because I had a similar feeling of reaching a ceiling dps-wise with the gear I have 868. The RNG for MM has been a real killer lately with Marked Shot not procing consistently. And it's been a challenge to break that 300k dps plateau with any consistency. Blizz royally screwed with hunters in this xpac... but we've all heard that...

They just changed our role a bit. MM went from single target to spread cleave, and BM to stacked AOE. Both specs seem to do more or less consistent single target damage with right talents. I'd say we're fine. We just used to being overpowered, now we got our wings clipped a bit, and we're just average, which is not too bad.

Will have to see what 7.1.5 will bring us numbers-wise.

      Hay,
       
      I seem to struggle to get better DPS. I figured out that i used chaos strike and blade dance to less. and i should use less Throw glaive and fellrush. 
      But i stil seem to have trouble getting my dps on.  Please take a look on the logs at the 14th. 
      I really dislike using the "eye beam build" (it feel slow to me) so i still use the 2221311 build.

      Hello all! I figured i'd make this thread to get some up to date information on the AOE rotation for unholy.  Currently i'm 935 ilvl, and I run Incstructor's fourth lesson and Soul. (For lack of a better option.) However it is my understanding that these two legendaries make for the strongest aoe rotation. Is this true?

       That is my first question. My second is what is the priority for aoe when running these two. Is it to wait for defile to drop, then festering wound a target a couple times, then Scourge Strike? Or is the priority to just put Wounds on then pop them asap, dropping the defile whenever it's available. Typically I wait for defile before I start building Wounds, but given the soul and the extra talent, i suspect it's better to just aoe without Defile if it's unavailable or perhaps just better to rarely spend runes on defile? Curious as to your thoughts!
