Looking for help to improve [MM DPS]

4 posts in this topic

Hi fellow hunters,

I have been reading these forums for quite some time now, but never actually signed in and felt I could contribute anything so this is my first post. I am by no means an experienced player or what, but hopefully this post and topic won't be my last and I can contibute something to icy! :)

I have the feeling, and number never really lie, that my dps is too far below par. First I tried to read, re-read and read some more on these forums to see what I can improve on. I have also done many uploads to warcraftlogs and checkmywow to see if I can find the issue. I know a lot of my dps issues come from moving to incoherent and just falling out of the rotation. Something I can and should improve on, but somehow keep finding hard to. Last night I felt I did the most I could in a semi pug/alt run in EN HC and earlier in a ToV pug. When I checked the logs, i keep finding that my resource management needs improvement. I am allready trying to focus (no pun intended) on that but really thought I was getting the hang of it.

So here is the question: Can you guys (and possibly girls) help me to improve my dps with some tips and pointers practical enough for me to implement?

What i tried so far:
- packing more haste gear (felt my cast time and focus generation were a little behind at first)
- keep better track of my focus (addon bar in close sight)
- more closely monitor the vulnerable and true shot timers
- use marked shot directly in vulnerable when >110 focus
- improve the opener by trying to maximize the number of marked shots instead of aimed shots
- more closely monitor the cooldowns of windburst and barrage to get as many of them in as possible
- use the barrage/true shot combo in the last 20% to get a spike in the end

Here is my armory link:

Last nights logs:

Same fights but analyzed through check my wow:

I hope there is someone willing to add a few pennies or thoughts to make me understand what I'm doing wrong and help me to improve. Thanks in advance!

You have to forcast movements watch your DBM timers. 

Look at your logs> pick a fight you rank low in> click on damage done> on the graph scale click on Aarts> then see where your damage didn't follow the groups (dropped below or peaked before everyone else) 

Example: Cenaruis> between 2:34 and 2:49 your damage went to almost 0. you didn't die so go over the events in that time period and try to replay why you stop your dps. You can also replay the fight to see if you had to move or everyone went left, your went right, etc... But the group as a whole didn't stop DPS and would of had to move also, so why did you drop that low?

Hi Diemocracy,

Thank you for taking the time to help me out. I will be going through the fights and see where to improve on this timing aspect, thank you for the tip.

As for the Cenarius. That was my "turtle-time" :)

*bump*

Is there anyone else who'm might be willing and able to take a look at the logs and throw in some advice?

Also: I have two relics waiting to be used, both are +1 Quick Shot but -5 ilvl to my current equipped. What should i do? loose 5 ilvl on both relics and gain +2 Quick shot or stay with the currently higher ilvl?

      Tank ABOUT US
      Now recruiting for BfA!
      Currently looking for a skilled and laid back Tank for the upcoming expansion.
      We're semi-casual in terms of the time we spend raiding, but are serious about progression, attendance, and performance.
      Booty Pirates is a close-knit late night guild that hangs out in Discord frequently. We enjoy joking around, playing alts, doing Mythic+, playing other games, or just hanging out. 
      Fun guild events are scheduled often!
      Overall, we're very social with guild members that actually talk to each other.
      (18+ required, we talk like pirates!)
      GOALS FOR BfA
      In Battle for Azeroth we plan to push Mythic more than we did previously in Legion, and not spend nearly as much time on Heroic. 
      This means we will jump into Mythic/Heroic weekends as soon as the majority of the Heroic gear is done. (Mythic Friday and Heroic Sunday, for example, until we phase Heroic out completely.) 
      SCHEDULE UNTIL FIRST TIER*
      Below are our events the beginning weeks of BfA! All events start at 10pm CT.
      Week 1
      August 13th (Mon) - BfA Weekday Leveling Party! August 17th (Fri) - Leveling up in BfA Drinking Party August 19th (Sun) - Leveling up in BfA Non-Drinking Party Week 2
      August 24th & 26th (Fri/Sun) - Mandatory Mythic 0 to prep for Tier 1 *Schedule subject to changes.

      Raiders must come prepared, on time, with flasks, pots, food, and runes. 
      Raiders must know their class and role. 
      Potential raiders must have been gearing for the content.
      Drama Queens and Trolls need not apply. 
      Our raid schedule is:
      Tuesday - Thursday
      8PM - 11PM CST
      We are looking for the following classes/specs, but will consider any good and dedicated players.
      Healers - Any Class
      DPS - Especially Mage, Monk, Rogue
      Tank - CLOSED

      Ey i want to create a new hunter character, and my doubt its, orc or maghar? I know this is not very importante because if u dont do high end is not terrible noticeable. In one hand we have the orc passive ( 5% more pet damage + ap) and in the other hand we have ( more health and ap ) .
      I think orc its better ¿ what do u think ?
      Sorry for my english im starting to learn english and i thought it was a good idea post here :D
