New BM Stat Priorities with Mantle of Command

10 posts in this topic

So I was fortunate enough to get mantle of command last night, and ran some quick sims. Based on my sims, it would seem that crit has over taken haste in the stat priority when using mantle of command. So stat priority is as follows:

agi > mast > crit > haste > vers

 

I haven't calculated weights, but the difference in simulations was significant. I'll leave the weight calculating to others. The idea is that with mantle of command and the changing function of dire beast, it is more advantageous to get more dire beasts from crit, than reducing the CD through haste. Maybe someone else can confirm this also.

I also agree that crit has taken over haste and the new select talents should be Big Game Hunter, Stomp, One with the Pack and Killer Cobra. I am not one to crunch numbers and always come here for my info but the difference I see in my dps with that setup is huge.

This is promising even without the Mantle.  I just did some dummy testing with your WotC build and got a 15k dps increase.

Only reason big game hunter and one with the pack aren't useful is because you only get the first 20% of the bosses health with all that working in your favour. 

If you find using a different talent set up works for you and you can replicate those results then I suggest you try and pass them on to Azor so that he can look at them and possibly compare them for others. 

I tried out your builds and found myself at a significant dps loss compared to the 7.1 build and new Dire Frenzy/blink strikes build (which I will admit feels a little more fun than I thought it would).

You should try logging some actual data to add to this forum post, I'm sure Azor would be interested to see that.

So I did switch to using Blink Strikes now but I'm still using Stomp... are you saying that Dire Frenzy is a better choice with Blink Strikes?

Dire Frenzy is for pure single target, I was only suggesting combining the two on single target fights because of the fact they both buff your pet damage rather than getting stomp damage as an outside source. But stomp / blink strikes are both much better on AoE fights or anything more than pure single target.

That reminds me... I've never understood... is Stomp a one-shot damage when the pet first attacks or does it happen again during a fight? Sorry if this is a stupid question...

Yes, when you cast Dire Beast, the beast that you summon 'stomps' when it reaches the target and it hits all nearby targets. It happens every time you cast Dire Beast.

For sure Mantle is the best legendarie and dominates everything. I also simmed a "few" (=hundreds) things and I probably got one of the best sums for bm(200sec Ursoc hc). http://www.askmrrobot.com/wow/simulator/report/066edface4b54f03ad82919df766e391

Talents: Way of the Cobra and Killer Cobra....Rest left

Pls dont take this to serious, just wanted to know how far we can go...

      Hello there: )
       
      Guyz i've got a question, i've been reading on icyveins forum , that in the new rotation/talents we need atleast 17% of haste just to have a proper DPS on it. It's that true?
    • By iLoveNny
      I have a lvl 104 MM hunter currently, with 7.1.5 I have heard BM is more viable. Should I A) switch my spec now for leveling B) keep MM for leveling but dump AP into BM artifact. 
      If "A" what should my basic build look like?
       
      THanks for the help!

      Hello all,
      So, first off, I've decided to bring my hunter out of retirement and have begun the (not so horrid) grind. I've reached the point in Legion where I have both my BM and MM artifacts and I've messed around the current "best" talent choices and rotations to try and see how they play out.
      I'm in the early stages of Legion levelling (currently 103) but I have mained a Death Knight since just after Legion started and wanted a nice old school rDPS alternative for when the raids call for it. I've messed around with both specs *briefly* (and naturally as I level I'll get a better feel for them both) and I can't really decide which route I'd prefer to go down and with the incoming changes to BM (buffs all around it seems) and nerfs to some aspects of MM I'd really like to gather the opinions of other people to help me decide which route is best for me.
      Things I've noticed so far:
      1. Focus regen is an issue in BM and too a lesser extent in MM, I constantly find myself out of focus for up to 1-2 seconds, so I'm stood AAing - is this normal? A product of low, under-geared, lack of haste?
      2. Sidewinders feels HORRIBLE to use. I'm all for using what is best for that DPS race, but this talent just feel so poor to use. It might be a product of the way I play my Frost DK, but I like having filler spells, and the loss and or Arcane and Multi shot spam just hurts my gameplay feel.
      3. Did I mention Sidewinders feels horrible? The fact it pulls everything unless I'm hugging my target in melee range really doesn't make sense to me either. Why is this the mechanic?
      4. From a round of log reading I've seen that both BM and MM (as of 7.1.0) perform better in various fights and in various ways -- But my guild mates tell me otherwise. This could be a lack of them personally playing either spec, but just something I wanted to query what people think, although I guess with the changes coming it isn't as relevant now.
       
      For anyone that can give me any advice on which way to go it would be very appreciated, I'd love to get back into Hunter, I just really can't decide which spec will suit me best in playstyle and raiding! (Also, I'm torn on a class fantasy level because Windrunner bow vs 2 pets!)
      Thanks for taking the time to read (and reply!)

      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.
