I am currently progressing in ToT and I am looking for someone who understands all of this jibberish from Logs and stats to help me breakdown what I am doing wrong and what I have to do to improve. Quick tips might not help me, as I am more of a hands on learner it is going to take me a bit to understand and grasp how it works. So please, have patience with me.

Here is a current log from a LFR I ran today:

http://www.worldoflogs.com/reports/6c3zracuy54ivbtd/

Here is my Armory:

http://us.battle.net/wow/en/character/korgath/Yelaina/simple

Single target rotation I do as follows:

Shadow Word: Pain

Vampiric Touch

Mind Blast

Mind flay (Until Mind Blast is up again)

Mind Blast

(Whenever I am spec'd for Mind Spike to proc I usually apply it twice and refresh it after a Mindblast if it allows)

Replace DoTs

Halo whenever I can (if not needed for healing intensive encounter)

Shadow Fiend on CD

Devouring Plauge on 3x Shadow Orbs

and Shadow Word: Death (when applicable)

I would really love to know if and when using Mind Spike is appropriate, I know I need a Helm update, really badly (I am working on that). I would love to know more about what if anything I could reforge and if I need to regem. Consider me a sponge....a slow absorbing one, but never the less, a sponge.

Thank you in advance for anyone who helps me in any way, no matter how little.

Looking through the log and checking it against your current gear and build, it is quite OK. However, there are a few things that will get your DPS higher.

1. Do a proper regem/reforge. Go to askmrrobot.com, select your toon and optimise it. Since at the moment you do not have the LMG, I think that T14+ build is still for you. Regem and reforge accordingly.

2. Try to get your BiS trinkets. As awseome as UVLS trinket looks, it barey procs, and it is not optimal for spriests. My suggestion is to try and farm Troll Council and Megaera for their trinkets, those are the BiS.

3. Talents and Glyphs. Although, apart maybe from mind spike glyph, none of the others provide any dps boost, I am struggling to understand for what you would pick dispersion and MD for. In my experience, MD Glyphed is only good for fighting HC Spirit Kings in mogushan vaults, for boss #1. And I never found myself wishing I had 15 seconds shaved off my dispersion. Now, depending on the fights, I would choose Mind Spike and Inner Sanctum over MD and Dispersion. Since Mind Spike has been changed to not take into account FDCL procs, that glyph is also next to useless, unless you have fights that need adds burning down and you might need a bit of burst. But since 5.2 if I remember correctly, Solace and Insanity has been redesigned, and it now destroys FDCL in terms of DPS output. Unless the fight requires A LOT of movement, PW: I is almost mandatory, since the DPS spikes if used properly on a 3 orb DP.

Give this a shot and see how it goes :)

Your rotation has one issue: you should always open with Mind Blast and use it on cooldown - hit it in mid-channel of Mind Flay to do so. Also, since you take From Darkness, Comes Light, you should use your free Mind Spikes whenever they are available, but never use it otherwise since it consumes your DoTs.

I want to thank you both for taking the time to respond, I worked with my GM last night on AskMrRobot and fixed everything and I will be working on paying attention to getting my orbs up fast on single targets and managing my DoTs on Multi's tonight in our Raid.

Thank you both, again.

Insanity is the way to go, just make sure you won't have to refresh either dot before using it. You may also clip/recast mind flay when DP has <1s left to extend the dmg, since Insanity only looks for DP on the target at the time of the cast and not for the duration.

You will want to reach either the 8085 or the 10124(10437 w/LMG) haste caps. Then with either the LMG or T15 trinkets mastery ranks higher than crit to optimize procs.

If you are having trouble with when you refresh dots based on your procs you can get Affdots and the priest plug in, its fairly simple to set up and use.

Anything other questions just ask smile.png

      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!

      Hey, so I've recently decided to main a BM hunter for the rest of legion and was just curious if there was some helpful tips out there (I've been reading up on the guides/forum posts but trying to see if I'm doing ok).
       
      this is me. https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-us/character/nagrand/greenmidget
       
      sorry, I haven't done this before so I don't have any data to link or know how to use stuff like Warcraft logs or sims. I've also haven't done many runs of tombs yet so don't have any tier pieces.

      looking at the icy veins guides I've talented for dire frenzy but didn't realise how much mastery I ended up with. Have I gone too crazy with mastery, should I be adjusting my stat prio better? Thinking I should probably gem for more haste. Most of my enchants/ gems I'm using are just ones I had the highest rank for and cheapest to make so my necklace is probably enchanted wrong.
       
      i probably specced for mostly single target and think I've been doing fairly poorly for AoE damage compared to other people around my ilvl. Although I know to use multi-shot to refresh beast cleave I probably spam multi-shot more than the 4 secs needed, don't really use dire frenzy effectively, use titan's thunder basically whenever it's off cooldown, don't really know when I'm meant to be using aspect of the wild or whether I should be using beastial wrath in AoE fights. Should I be using murder of crows in AoE fights as well or is it just a waste of focus?
       
      For single target I think I'm doing alright so far (only recently got the legendary boots so not sure how much the kill command cooldown should affect my rotation). Still don't really know when the best time is to be using aspect of the wild but I was basically doing the same as the icy veins guide. My opening sequence is usually something like Murder of crows, beastial wrath, titans thunder, then just kill command, cobra shot, kill command cobra shot etc.
       
      Looking at icy veins guide I think I'm meant to be doing murder of the crows, beastial wrath, dire frenzy, titans thunder, then another dire frenzy straight away, aspect of the wild then normal rotation. After that it's just kill command/cobra shot I guess. While beastiality wrath is in effect should I only be spamming kill command/cobra shot for the quick cooldowns or should I still be using dire frenzy during this time? I use titan thunder when it's off cooldown and dire frenzy whenever it has 2 stacks. I usually just used murder of the crows when it was off cooldown but the guide seems to indicate that I should wait the extra 30 seconds and time it with my next bestial wrath. As for aspect of the wild I usually forget I even have this move and don't use it effectively, do I wait and combined it with bestial wrath? Wait and use it when I'm low on focus? Or use it as soon as it's off cooldown?
       
      Thanks for listening to my rambling and hopefully thanks for your reply.
       
      P.S. It's probably more of a personally choice or situational choice I guess but should I be talenting myself more for AoE for mythics. Example, one with the pack, volley, aspect of the beast?

      Hey guys,
      I'm new here in the Icy Veins forums and would like to request your assistance.
      So this is my Mage https://www.warcraftlogs.com/character/id/14478881 haven't been playing Legion for a long time (around 2 weeks and a half), been trying to start rading so I would like to improve my DPS, I'm running GS.
      What I would like to ask you guys is if you could check me out and see what I could improve, it's been hard to get some more gear now since it's hard to get into groups, plus my pawn addon seems like its kind of bugged which is kind of confusing me about gear/stats. I know my stat priority for GS Build but nor sure about stat weigths for it.
      Hope you guys can help me, thank you in advance !

      Hey there, looking for some common mistakes I might be making in my gear or dps rotation that I am just not seeing. You'd think it would be pretty basic but my dps has been all over the place recently. 

      I will be fighting kiljaeden (pretty standard) and have anywhere from 650-850dps average for the fight. It's gotten me kicked a couple times obviously despite being good on mechanics. I've reviewed several guides, made sure I am enchanted and gemmed... cannot figure it out. What am I doing wrong? (Yes low on meters for other fights as well though not always). 

      924 iLevel, wearing legendary belt and chest (dont have tier to wear shoulders and chest)

      67% Mastery (issue?) 
      24% Critical Strike
      29% Haste

      Opener: Blood Fury, Tome (trinket), Crow, Bestial Wrath, Dire Frenzy, KC, AspectotW, Titan's Thunder, CS, KC, DF...

      Repeat KC, CS, And cast DF whenever buff falls off or procs bonus. 

      Talent Build is:
      Cobra
      Frenzy
      Posthaste
      Bestial
      Int
      Crow
      Killer Cobra

      Helps, tips, advice welcome. 

      Are there common mistakes to rotation i might be making even if u dont see it here? Should i be working hard to gear swap? I am at a loss and it is getting frustrating. Thanks

      So, I've been rather disheartened by my current DPS as a sub rogue in tomb. I feel that I have the burst windows down with the rec'd talents, my opener is usually solid unless affected by mechanics, not to mention ilvl, but I'm hitting nowhere near the burst damage of other sub rogues that not only are my ilvl but over 10 or 15 lower - even without the t20 two piece. And not just burst, but overall damage output, I'm nowhere up to par making the numbers that other sub rogues are. 
      The only thing that I have noticed when using the compare feature on warcraft logs is : every person parsing above ~850k has the convergence of fates trinket, and the denial of the half giants wrist leggie. (Mantle is also typically what they have too, but I've seen others with the leggies I have of insignia of ravenholdt or valeera legs.)
      Is sub's dps right now really that dependent on the uptime of shadow blades as to why we are parsing as top spec for tomb since the class changes? I understand how powerful it is, but the fact of the matter is that RNG has not decided to bestow upon me either the trinket or legendary, so any fight longer than two minutes or so my dps and damage is down the drain. Should I be rolling with different talents to compensate for my lack of these things to get better results? I've played around with not using death from above and it wasn't a gain, as did AMR tell me that it wouldn't be, as well as running sims with my current gear and other talent combos amr always tells me I won't get the best results.
       Or I have wondered, I see people saying about not backstabbing too much. Is it truly a dps gain to just stand there autoattacking? The combo points generated automatically are slow to come when they do, and I fear pooling for that long just autoattacking will result in a damage loss? 
      Here is a link to my logs page. https://www.warcraftlogs.com/character/us/cenarion-circle/adassos# I have seen an increase with my gain of ilvl, but it's poor and I'm still in the lowest percentiles for spec and ilvl. Any advice or if it truly is based on those rng items would be helpful, thanks.
