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.

      Hey hunters! 

      I used to play hunter back in the old days (Max level 80), and now starting with the game again. Therefore starting to gather some research before making my character (Yea thats my thing). First of all im a raider, love doing that, therefore want to master a spec there can give me a spot on the raid teams. I passionated in the spec BM for a while, but have a hard time to chose, as my research came across Survival. Survival look pretty strong at the moment, when i look at characters as Nnoggah. So i want the hear some of the more experience guys in here, how is BM doing compared to Survival, is it lacking behind or is it doing better if played right? 

      Hope to hear some opinions. PS i know typical question here, but as a person i just like to get all facts gather before starting something.
      Kind regards - TeemoTeemo

      All applications will be reviewed and considered however if you are playing a class/spec combination we need then your chances of joining will be higher.
      A little bit of info about us:
      We are a group of friends and serious raiders on EU Twisting Nether looking to recruit skilled like-minded players into our roster for Mythic Legion raids and onwards. We will offer a sociable and fun raiding environment while maintaining a strong desire for progression.

We run optional heroic/normal/alt/previous tier raids during off days in which raiders are welcome to come to. Our members also play other games outside raid times together where anyone is welcome to join(LoL, Dota, HotS, Overwatch etc.).
      Our loot system for Mythic is RC Loot Council.
      What we expect from you:
      - We are a raiding guild with only a 9 hour per week schedule so you are expected to attend and be ON TIME! However we understand things can come up sometimes but please let us know.
      - Be able to speak and understand the English language and not be afraid to communicate with other members during raids.
      - Actively doing dungeons/world quests to improve your gear and artifact weapon.
