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.

      <Exo> is an old guild from Dragonblight which transferred to Stormrage in search of mythic raiders. We are a guild full of experienced raiders always looking to expand our roster. 
      We are not a world first guild nor do we aim to be. Our primary goal is to get loot and have a good time, however this still means on progression nights we do expect you to show up, put on your serious face, and kill some *filtered*.
      Our raids are on 3 nights a week; Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday from 9pm-12 Server Time (EST). The Monday raids are optional farm/alt nights (Normal/Heroic) with Tuesday/Wednesday being mandatory progression nights.
      Currently we are accepting applications for any role, off specs are always a welcome addition but not required. Performance and skill will be looked at above gear, experience, or class.
      We do not have a minimum item level required to join our raid team, however we will require you to catch up in our Monday farm-runs up until you are at a mythic level.
      If you have any questions or are interested in joining or trialing with us please add Pasha#1800, Java#1849 or Bushido#1988 on bnet to talk with an officer.

      I came to Icy Veins to setup my Elemental Shaman only to find your Talent setup does not match what is offered in the game presently.  Below I have listed what I see in my current in-game talent setup and bolded those items that do not match your setup at all.
      Current in-game Talents listed:                                                   Your Listing:                      
      15 Exposed Elements Echo of the Elements Elemental Blast               Earthen Rage 30 Aftershock Master of Elements Totem Mastery       Call the Thunder 45 Spirit Wolf Earth Shield Static Charge         60 High Voltage Storm Elemental Liquid Magma Totem       Master of the Elements 75 Nature's Guardian Ancestral Guidance Wind Rush Totem         90 Earthen Rage Primal Elementalist Icefury       Surge of Power 100 Unlimited Power Stormkeeper Ascendance         I thought someone here should know about these differences because it appears there has been no update recently to your setup.   I know that I personally would appreciate an update so that I can adjust my in-game setup to work better.
