DPS questions for MM Hunter

Hello,

I was wondering if anyone can take a look at our guild hunter's DPS for the last TOV fights we did.  I don't really know hunters that well but am trying to help them get their damage up to par.  I would say that the fights particular would be either odyn or guarm.  I am not sure if its a stat problem, or some kind of rotation issue.  Any help would be appreciated. they are wildskies and sheffinade.

here are the logs.  https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/9gjTZcLmKkqQ7z4N#fight=3

Straight up I can see a couple of things that can be easy fixes. This is based off the Guarm kill on 29th Dec by the way. I'll have a look at some of his other logs to give a more rounded view too.

1) Burst shot, I can see he has the legendary bracers but the damage you get from it isn't worth using for the GCD. He'd get more out of not using that ability at all on a single target fight. It becomes quite useful when you have multiple targets, or targets that can/need to be CC'ed. 

2) Trueshot - on the Guarm kill, he used it once at the start of the fight but didn't use it again - this is one of the best cooldowns in the game in my opinion, especially combined with the Bullseye trait. He gets 50% extra crit damage, and 30% extra crit chance (if timed right), as well as 40% haste. Not using this in the execution phase of the fight is a MAJOR dps loss. 

3) A Murder of Crows over barrage? Barrage is by far the better talent for MM, this is an easy change

4) On a nearly 4 minute fight he cast Windburst 4 times. This should be done almost on cooldown.

5) His opener seems to be lacking any impact, tell him to read the icy-veins guide and memorise it and practise it on the target dummies over and over again until he gets it perfect every time.

6) Devilsaur's bite is quite a poor trinket unless it's titanforged and towards the 860-870 ilvl range. The lack of agi on this trinket isn't made up by the proc. He would do better getting an 845 stat stick. Devilsaur's Bite is only good for single target, it gets progressively worse on multiple targets, whereas agi/mastery stat stick would scale exponentially higher.

7) Despite the Zevrim's Hunger legendary ring, I see he's lacking quite a lot of Marked Shot casts.

8) In general these are the main things to be looked at. This needs to be adjusted as soon as possible. 

Hmm. I also just noticed you asked for both hunters to be looked at, so I'll add the stuff for Sheffinade below. The above applies to Wildskies.

1) I'll just say that all the same advice applies to Sheffinade too. MM is a basic spec, these are quite simple mistakes and can be fixed just by paying more attention to the Icy-Veins guide and a little bit of practise.

2) Sheffinade has an 860 versa stat stick, even an 840 mastery one would be a lot better purely because of the mastery increase. 

As an aside, without sounding rude, I can see a lot of your raiders aren't performing where they could be and a lot of them could do with spending some time on Icy-Veins really following the guide and practising their rotation/openers until they're perfect. I'm sure if you get that under control you'll end up with a far more competent raid team and Nighthold will be quite easy for you.

Please don't hesitate to ask any additional questions if you have them.

      We're a close-knit guild that hangs out in Discord a lot, joking, playing alts, Mythic+, other games or just hanging out. Fun guild events happen monthly!

      Overall, we're very social with guild members that actually talk to each other. (18+ required, we talk like pirates!)

      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

      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!
