Hey everyone, new here.

I just got done with Normal Nighthold with my guild and my DPS.. well sucks. Can anyone look at my logs and see what's up? Maybe a few pointers?
Thank you!

You are using abilities that you shouldn't be. You aren't using either Hailstorm or Crashing Storm, so you should take Frostbrand off your bar entirely and use Crash Lightning only for heavy cleave and directly after using Feral Spirit. You are utterly neutering your DPS by using those abilities in your regular rotation, especially with Boulderfist. You'll get so many more Stormstrikes off if you don't waste GCD's and maelstrom on abilities that are only used with specific builds.

I've gone on the record before as saying, Boulderfist does not play nice with Fury of Air. The maelstrom generation is not as reliable; however this is not as serious of an issue and if you are comfortable with it, you can use this build. I have seen some very high parses using this combo. It's just that people started using FoA when they buffed the maelstrom generation on Rockbiter, and Boulderfist didn't get that. It is better overall to use Crashing Storm for the fights when you can use Crash Lightning in AoE.

Start with practicing the right abilities with the correct priority list. If you are going to use Boulderfist, it will be the IV T19 4-piece rotation, except that maintaining Fury of Air is your #1 priority.

  1. Cast Boulderfist Icon Boulderfist to generate Maelstrom, if the buff is not currently active, or you are about to hit 2 charges.
  2. Cast Feral Spirit Icon Feral Spirit on cooldown. Follow this immediately with a Crash Lightning Icon Crash Lightning cast to activate  Icon Alpha Wolf.
  3. Maintain the Flametongue Icon Flametongue buff.
  4. Activate  Icon Doom Winds whenever available, try to have Stormstrike Icon Stormstrike available with this.
  5. Cast Stormstrike Icon Stormstrike with Stormbringer Icon Stormbringer active.
  6. Cast Boulderfist Icon Boulderfist if under 50 Maelstrom.
  7. Cast Stormstrike Icon Stormstrike on cooldown.
  8. Cast Lava Lash Icon Lava Lash if above 70 Maelstrom.

I have a similar question so I will ask it here.

I was going with the standard build from icy-veins (I mean FoA and Windsong and Ancestral) but when I get the Legendary finger I simed my char and the Hailstorm - Boulderfist - Crash Lightening showed higher damage.

My question is what SimulationCraft shows is right or should I go for Standard build. I have 2-set btw.

Thanks.

I'm a Boulderfist / Crashing Storm fan, mainly because I have Emalon's Crashing Core but also because it's the most fun Enhancement build and it still performs well. Haven't been able to find an FoA build that I like and haven't been able to get the performance to measure up. I don't have the legendary ring or bracers, but even with my gear Hailstorm is fairly close as well, though I'm no longer as good at it as I was before 7.1.5 when I was playing with Hailstorm every day.

      Strangely Ironic is guild of friends and family that has been around the block a couple times. We are trying to recruit active players to form a raid team. Due to RL and the age of the game our ranks have dwindled. We are a casual guild looking to raid two nights a week from 9pm EST to 11pm EST; days of the week will change as I work shift work. If you want to join and don't want to raid we are still accepting all applicants as we want to foster an active community.
      No hot-heads please, as we are a guild who recognizes that this is just a game and we are all here to have fun and relax.
      If you are interested add reddfoxx#1496 or head to strangelyironic.enjin.com to fill out an application.

      We're a guild looking for people who want to have a great time, hang out with each other, laugh and have fun while killing stuff in raids! 

      Guild Name: RaidCat
      Faction: Alliance
      Realm (EU): Silvermoon
      Realm Type: PVE
      Realm Timezone: CEST
      Progression: 8/11 HC Antorus
      Raid Times: 19:30st - 22:00st
      Raid Schedule: Friday and Monday (additional raids on Wednesday for alts, mythic etc)
      Openings: Range DPS (help us knock those melee off the top of the meters!)

      We raid twice a week in the evenings with optional extra runs appearing as requested. 
      Currently we also raid on Wednesdays (normal) to help gear up mains and alts.
      As our raid roster increases and  heroic progress continues Wednesday evening will likely become a mythic progression night. However mythic is not our end goal or focus, but rather something we try to make extra time for. Social members also welcome!

      Looking for: Range DPS (warlock, mage, hunter, shadow priest, hunter) Other applications considered.

      We do everything from Transmog runs, PVP, Mythic+ and whatever else you can think of, with our main focus on raiding.

      We are aiming for a relaxed yet skilled raiding environment where people can fill in for each other, not having to worry about always attending since people can fill in for you, focusing on having fun and improving ourselves with each kill.

      We do care about people following tactics and knowing what they're doing (so do your homework or ask for help!) so we may actually get some stuff done as well, that's why we're looking mainly for experienced raiders that want a more flexible environment (if you are new to raiding you are still welcome)

      We use Discord and you are welcome to join and hang out before deciding to move over.

      Officers: Maxilloss & Ahdra#2154

      Hello my Demonhunter Fellows! :)
      I´m one of those Demon Hunter Players, that is still playing with T20 Set. But i look forward to switch to my T21 "sweet" Demonic Build soon.
      So here´s my question: Theres pretty much an even opinion pool of people saying i should play with Raddon's Cascading Eyes + Anger of the Half-Giants and people saying Delusions of Grandeur + Anger of the Half-Giants ... I think both have a good effect with the new Demonic Build but which is better? Due to the fact, that these are 2 Set piece slots it would be nice to know which is BiS.

      I am following the rotation given in the class page on here. My parses are terrible for my ilvl and I don't understand what i am doing wrong and why my dps isn't higher. i havent been using firestarter because i feel like the boss is only above 90% for 5 seconds. Been using RoP for most fights because i have T21 4p.
