MM hunter single target damage lives and dies by your vulnerable window and trueshot aura.  I highly recommend picking up this vulnerable tracker for weakauras:

Your goal is to get your aimed shots into the last two ticks of that window, assuming you've taken the Patient Sniper talent.  As Vulnerable ticks down on a target, the more damage your aimed shots will do to the target, making the end of the window more vital than the beginning (hence why you apply vulnerable and then arcane shot as filler.  Or aimed/arcane/aimed/aimed depending on whatever your gear/encounter mechanics allow for).

Your other goal is to, of course, have vulnerable up on the target as much as possible via marked shot or windburst.

You'll also want to cast Trueshot Aura as much as possible (so legendary boots, MM 4pc, the TSA trait/relic, and Convergence of Fate are what to aim for, no pun intended, to cut down TSA's cooldown as much as possible) and try to maximize your output while it's up: so, during bloodlust/heroism, and when the boss dips below 20% due to our stacking buff thinger whose name I can't recall at the moment.  Bullseye?  That sounds right.

You'll want to do the same with Murder of Crows - cast on cooldown or try to line it up with sweet spots in the fight.

Cast windburst on cooldown.

Don't focus cap - even if that means casting an aimed shot without vulnerable up.


Mastery > all

then crit and haste.


Unfortunately, when I follow your link, there's no character there.


Also, 7/10 nighthold fights are aoe (or 6/10 if your guild cheeses Chrono on heroic or lower).  Fortunately, MM aoe is pretty easy and super effective, especially on Mythic+ trash packs.  You can work with the memebuild or normal aoe.  TSA is also vital to this, and you'll want to cast it when you know groups of adds are about to show up to be burst down.  TSA then multishot/marked shot your way to victory, plus or minus whatever extras you may or may not be running with (piercing shot/explosive shot or lock n load procs + trick shot).  And don't forget to make sure you have volley turned on.

      All applications will be reviewed and considered however if you are playing a class/spec combination we need then your chances of joining will be higher.
      A little bit of info about us:
      We are a group of friends and serious raiders on EU Twisting Nether looking to recruit skilled like-minded players into our roster for Mythic Legion raids and onwards. We will offer a sociable and fun raiding environment while maintaining a strong desire for progression. Our Discord is very active and we encourage all members to chat and play together not only for raids. The guild formed late March 2016 and fully cleared 13/13 Mythic Hellfire Citadel pre nerf shortly after. We've since been improving our world ranking every tier.
      We currently raid 3 days per week on Mythic: Wednesday, Sunday and Tuesday 19:15-22:15 server time. While it is not a lot we try to make the most out of our time. We run optional heroic/normal/alt/previous tier raids during off days in which raiders are welcome to come to. Our members also play other games outside raid times together where anyone is welcome to join(LoL, PUBG, HotS, Overwatch etc.).
      Our loot system for Mythic is RC Loot Council.
      What we expect from you:
      - We are a raiding guild with only a 9 hour per week schedule so you are expected to attend and be ON TIME! However we understand things can come up sometimes but please let us know.
      - Be able to speak and understand the English language and not be afraid to communicate with other members during raids.
      - Actively doing dungeons/world quests to improve your gear and artifact weapon.
      - Have a strong understanding of the current raid tier and be able to play your class to it's potential.
      - Always come to raids prepared(i.e. bringing food and potions, etc).
      - Come fully gemmed and enchanted with the correct stats for your class and spec.
      - Access to Discord and a working microphone.
      - Have a computer that can handle 20 man raiding and a good, stable internet connection.
      - Exorsus Raid Tools, Weakauras2 and RC Loot Council addons installed. We may ask you to install others.
      If you have any further questions please contact us at battletag: Vims#21684

      To apply please visit our guild website:
      Requirements to be considered into current main raids:
      - 930~ ilvl
      - 72+ traits.
      - 8/9 in ToS.
      - Exceptions to the requirements may be made.
      We're currently looking for the classes below but may consider other classes as well.
      Priest: Shadow.
      Druid: Balance.
      Warlock: Affliction.
      Hunter: MM.
      Rogue: Assa/sub
      Any and all applications will be considered.

      Hi and, first of all, thanks for your time. 
      I´m back to WoW after around 3 years, and I´m feeling quite confused yet. My main is a Hunter. I left it during WoD as a BM. Now I´m back, still with WoD expansion, and I feel the class has changed a LOT. No traps, quite a different composition, etc. 
      I´d like some help in order to set my talents and rotations. My intention atm, as lvl 100, is to finish questing Draenor (still quite a bit to do here) and then buy Legion and try to level up before the expansion comes. I like soloing (I guess BM should be my choice, but I´m here to hear your opinions!!) and I´ll try to avoid skipping content. I´m not in a hurry, just want to enjoy the whole lore-and-questing all the way up.
      Thanks again for your help!!!!

      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

      According to Azortharion simulations, our best for Antorus will be Qapla/Soul+Dire Frenzy/OWTP , ¿what stats need this build? At this moment, we need Mastery/Haste for Dire Frenzy build and Critical/Haste for OWTP build: therefore, they are mutually exclusive, right?  Or at least I understand that.
      So, ¿what stats?
