Need Pro Tips: BM DPS

Hi Guys,

I need some help by increasing my Single Target DPS as BM.

Status Quo:

My Ilvl is at nearly 880, my gear and talents did I simulate with askmrrobot. agi>mastery>haste>crit>versality and ~10 ilvl >  secondarystats 15-20> primarystats. You can take a closer look at wowprogress:

http://www.wowprogress.com/character/eu/antonidas/Granei

http://eu.battle.net/wow/de/character/antonidas/Granei/advanced

Artefact:

Reach today lvl 35 :) 

ilvl 902 (take a look at wowprogrss)

My stats:

27% crit

17% hast + trinket

73% mastery (has been higher but I got ilvl upgrades which have been ways too good)

My legendaries are Roar and Call.

As talents I choosed only Way of the Cobra instead of Direbeast, because i got (depending on procs) >1,7 Direbeasts active which means a boost of ~30% on CS. Also I got aspect of the wild every 2nd Bestial wrath, so I can abandon the focus regeneration.

Rotation:

Bestial Wrath , Direbeast(kept always on CD, if Bestial Wrath CD> ~5sec), KC , Murder of Crowds, Titansthunder, aspect of the wild, KC, CS, KC, CS....

between Bestial Wraths I do only cast KC, Direbeast and CS if focus>90. If there are more then 2 other targets(during bossfight) I cast a few multipleshots with a delay of ~4 secs.

Logs:

...

Please tell me your suggestions to increase my DPS.

One thing that I can see straight away is your mastery is a major problem, look to drop crit for mastery asap.

On my BM hunter I have 24% crit, 19% haste and 91% mastery.

I would highly suggest you download simulationcraft both (wow addon and desktop) and Pawn to get accurate stat weights based off your current gear and not generic stat values from this website which are a great starting area.

For example I am using a Haste/Crit 880 helm over Haste/Mastery due to it simming higher than mastery now normally I would of equipped the mastery and thought nothing of it but Simulationcraft and pawn provide you with an easy system to track upgrades for your own character.

edit -

Some basic gear swaps

Neck -> JC crafted neck 8/8 Oblit = 855 with significantly more mastery.

Cloak -> BoE from ToV crit/mastery with 200agil not 100 haste enchant.

Trinket -> Aran Ruby or Urn from Nightbane

Chest -> From Nightbane

Ring -> JC crafted Shadowruby mastery haste ring.

 

Neck, Ring and Trinket would give you a significant mastery upgrade.

You mention ilvl upgrades being too good but the realitiy is that they most likely were not worth losing so much mastery, simulationcraft and pawn will help you identify this.

Thanks for the quick answer.

I already try to increase my mastery. I only changed the items if the ilvl difference was significent.

Another point why my mastery is so low are maybe my trinkets which got "only" agility on them.

I kept a part of my old stuff and i'll do a few trials later.

Another note to when you run sims don't just change all of the items and then re run the sim, you need to sim each and every time you swap a single item as your stat weights change.

If you need a hand setting up simulation craft/pawn feel free to add me @ SodamInsane#2830

Twisting Wind trinket is garbage for BM, it was one of the BiS after launch but it's one of the worst now. even 870 is worse than an 850 stat stick with mastery.

You've got an artifact relic with multishot damage; swap it out for one that's either Pack Leader or Jaws of Thunder, both of those are simmed as BiS relics and are a crucial part of your single target dps.

Gear wise you're mostly actually doing quite well. I can see why you've chosen the items you have and until you can get something with more mastery that's closer to your ilvl that's good. Realistically, following what Sodam has said, swapping out your neck/rings isn't going to be a huge fix, stats are quite balanced at the moment and mastery only just pulls out ahead so having that balance of haste/mastery might not be a huge dps loss.

One thing I can see is your opener is wrong. BM opener consists of the following:

- Murder of Crows > Bestial Wrath > Kill Command > Dire Beast & Titan's Thunder > proceed into normal rotation. Your opener sets the pace for the entire fight, the better your opener the better your dps will be at the end.

Also the whole point of having Dire Stable > Way of the Cobra is so that during your burst periods where you don't have Aspect of the Wild up you can fit in more Kill Commands & Cobra Shots. I can see that you have the legendary belt, congrats you're a lucky duck! But, during your burst downtime is where BM loses a lot of its dps; having Dire Stable lets you generate more focus and have more casts in general while you're waiting for Bestial Wrath to come off CD. To be honest, that might only be a minor point, it depends how quickly you go out of focus in burst phase. (If you could reply with just a general bit of info on how long you can actually last in burst phase of spamming kill command and cobra shot before going out of focus that would be helpful).

One thing I have noticed though, is that on heroic your dps is fine, when changing to mythic you can't expect that same level of dps to be there as there are additional mechanics, and the logs on those fights are often being compared against guilds that have genuinely got that content on farm and have probably got multiple mythic kills and are more used to that environment.

You do also just have to consider that BM aren't in the greatest of places now; as good as you can be there will always be better dps classes at this point in time. Realistically, parsing over 90% in heroic is damn good, anything after that are really minor tweaks. For mythic, just focus on learning the mechanics as second nature and how to work around that to keep up your dps.

You're doing a good job man, best of luck.

Do not sacrifice ilevel (besides rings/neck) for more mastery. If a item has either haste or mastery and some other stat and is 5 levels higher ..because of the agi it will be better upgrade. Listen to your pawn addon with the weights from icy veins guides....as BM we do not have any "break points" so the weights will not change much as you gear up.  RNG is RNG and what ever the RNG gods give you use it. 

My stats look very close to yours but i have a extra 10 ilevels which equates to more agi. I think my crit is 36%, haste is 15%, mastery is 75% and i got 1% versatility. 

 

First step, whatever logic you used to convince yourself to use Way of the Cobra  please stop. Look at warcraft logs...look at top BM hunter records on all bosses...no on uses that ability. You want better logs...dont use that ability. The more focus talent helps when using BW and spamming CS/KC/CS/KC.  

 

There are two bad gear choices...twisted wind and your storm relic.  The icy vein guide once again gives you a idea what you should be targeting  for. ...and basically a 850 relic of with the right trait is better then a 880 trait with multi-shot. 

 

As another poster said...your cloak enchant is garbage and you should always use the 200 agi gem first. Also, and this is my preference but i use the neck enchant that gives more mastery even if it sims a bit lower. I think i even scene the writer of the icy vein guide talking about this somewhere too...something about improves cleaving.  Check the comment section of the BM guide on this webpage i think that is where i came across it. I been using the extra mastery since the beginning. 

 

Side note..check out the neck from archaeology this week...I think it will be an improvement over yours.  Its 850 with 3 sockets...thats right ...3 sockets. 

 

Finally i will leave you with one more thing to thing about.......something that is hard if not impossible to get from logs. Pet management....where is your pet...if you use the movement can he hit more targets? Always watch that pet.

Hi,

I haven't got focus problems at all, if is start Bestial wrath at 120 focus I have enough focus fo 10-12 seconds (depens on how often dire beast is avaiable).In the other burst phases I can use aspect of wildness so my focus is almost always over 100.  In case choosing dire stable i get 12 focus per cast that means for 2,5 casts i get 1 KC is it worth?  And yes I saw that almost every top-log was made with dire stable but none of them got the same legendarie set up.

Trinket: I didnt know that it is this bad -,-^^

I got Eye of Guarm 860 with versality which probably isnt better...

forgot about the belt...i still will go with the extra focus...if you can spam CS/KC/CS/KC without any delay at all for the whole duration of BW...then fine...but i doubt you are....especially out of heroism.  Your trying to equate it to extra cast ...but really its down to how much delay there is in the CS/KC spam due to lack of focus.  

 

The difference between the crappy eye you have and twisted win is very marginal....with the twisted win "being ahead". I would say fuck it and use the eye for the agi...i don't like how twisted wind procs...or how it is handle in sims. Overall, one bad proc and the eye would win out.

      Hello,
      The Sworn is recruiting DPS.  We are a Horde guild on Arthas and our current progression is 4/9 Mythic TOS.  We only raid two nights a week, Tuesday and Wednesday from 9:05 PM until 12:05 AM Eastern.  Currently, our main goal is to push Mythis TOS progression versus clearing farmed content, please keep this in mind if you wish to join us.
      From you, we would expect 100% attendance during your trial period; after that if you cannot make a raid or will be late it is mandatory to keep the raid leader updated.  In order to continue making good progression while raiding only two nights a week, we expect that you know your class inside-out and will research any bosses you are unfamiliar with prior to raids.
       If you are interested, you can either reply to this thread and link your most recent combat logs for review or hit me up on battlenet, Violentnacho, recruiting officer (violentravi#1826.
      Thank you for your consideration
      Xoxo

      According to Azortharion simulations, our best for Antorus will be Qapla/Soul+Dire Frenzy/OWTP , ¿what stats need this build? At this moment, we need Mastery/Haste for Dire Frenzy build and Critical/Haste for OWTP build: therefore, they are mutually exclusive, right?  Or at least I understand that.
      So, ¿what stats?

      Hello there!

      <Shadow> on Argent Dawn has been going since 2009. We are a close-knit community and strongly believe in recruiting people who will fit in with us rather than just whoever is topping the meters. We also believe that having a busy RL life with job/family/social commitments and committing to Mythic raiding as a hobby we're all passionate about are not mutually exclusive. We are looking to bolster our line-up to push for Cutting Edge in Antorus.

      About us
       
      We progress raid Thursdays and Sundays, 20:00-23:00 and 19:30-22:30 respectively (all times server time)
      We have a non-mandatory farm raid Fridays at 20:30 that socials and alts are welcome to
      We use Discord for voice communication and have an active server to hang out, chat, and organise M+ runs
      We maintain a mature environment - having a laugh is great, but bullying, endless meme-spamming and the like are not welcome
      We believe in learning from your mistakes - you will never be yelled at, but you will be asked whether you know what you did wrong and how you can fix it
       

      What we expect from recruits
       
      Sign up to raids ahead of time and give us a heads-up in case of longer absences
      Be there 15 minutes before raid start and bring your own consumables as back-up to feasts and cauldrons
      Do your homework - research encounters thoroughly and understand them
      Understand and know how to play your class
      Have Discord installed and a working microphone, ready to speak when required but without cluttering up comms with chatter
      You don't need to grind to the point of burn-out, but keep up with AP traits and do M+ to hone your skills and supplement your gear
      Be a team player and bring a positive attitude. Wipes happen in Mythic. Constructive feedback is great, backseat raid leading is not.


      What we are currently looking for

      A rule that applies to all potential recruits is: We do not recruit for the bench, but we will always take the team that is most likely to defeat the boss and cannot promise everyone they will always be in for every fight. When things are equal in terms of performance and required composition, we much prefer to rotate people in and out over benching someone for an entire night.
      One Healer - Paladin preferred, but any class that isn't priest will be considered
      One Tank - Bear, Brewmaster or Blood DK
      Melee DPS - got one spot for a Rogue
      Ranged DPS - Boomkins, Shadow Priests, Warlocks and Hunters

      If this sounds like the guild for you, check us out at shadow-wow.enjin.com or contact the Co-GMs Alec#2922 and NevNev#2669 for more info!

      See you in Antorus!
