Hello there,

I'm maining a Beast Mastery Hunter this expansion. I've always mained a healer previously so being (good at) DPS is a first for me. I feel like I've achieved as much as I can on my own wit. Hence why I would like to ask someone who's perhaps more seasoned in the class to take a look at my logs to see where there is still room for improvement.

Here's my guild's most recent NH heroic clear, my toon's name is Aart:

Skorpyron upto Elisandre Heroic: https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/A41hWFH2qJXwL9pd
Gul'dan Heroic (and Elisandre and Gul'dan Normal): https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/A8x6qWXCR4JHkGMh
My armory: http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/character/wildhammer/Aart/

Many thanks if you've taken the time to read and help - I'd appreciate it a lot!

From what i can see you are doing good on the rotation.

However from what i can see you are running with a pretty low mastery build. Perhaps consider replacing that neck and the 900 ring for example.

Alo the fury trinket isn't very powerful for bm. I would highly recommend going for the ursoc trinket since it is by far the best for bm.

 

Note:  Also noticed in on your guldan kill that you were running volley. From a dps perspective i would strongly reccommend that you go AMOC instead.

Hah, I equipped those two items this morning. I'm a bit limited in switching since my neck is my only socket. I have a decent alternative though. I can drop 6% haste for 11% extra mastery (and +2% crit), taking my mastery up to 77% and haste back to 19%. Alternatively I considered enchanting for Soldier instead of Satyr. Both cases are simulated as a dps loss in SimC though so I'm not sure.

Thanks for the other two pointers. I'll make that trinket a priority indeed!

If you refer to my post about the BM soft cap, you'll see why focusing for purely 18-20% haste is all you need and the rest can go mastery.

Change your neck and go trained soldier, you'll end up with the right amount of haste and an absolute tonne more mastery. Claw can sim higher but it's rng based, trained soldier is just consistent dps.

You're doing mostly fine Taggerung, although with those legendaries and item level you could be doing probably about 750k on a fight like Gul'dan. You used Time Dilation 6 times so I assume they were correctly procced with Bestial Wrath and all. I don't see any crazy mistakes or anything, and 72% performance is not bad. 

The only thing I can notice is that you aren't cleaving as much as you should. You didn't hit Beast Cleave at all on phase 1, which is probably entirely not your fault if your tanks are not moving the adds together, but your Thunderslash was hitting two targets at some points where you weren't cleaving. You should basically cleave on every single add that spawns from Hand of Gul'dan (after he moves into melee range of Gul'dan of course), and every Empowered eye of Gul'dan as well (unless your tanks move Gul'dan away from the eye in phase 3). You should pretty much try to cleave on every enemy possible, especially if Bestial Wrath is on cooldown.

Your Haste is a bit low in my opinion but none of your gear looks bad. I don't particularly like that chest with versatility but given its item level it's probably the best you've got.

Hi, I don't mean to hijack, but didn't see a point in a new thread asking the same question so soon.

H Guldan - https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/6zMF8W9rTKfcgGLX#fight=1

Armory - http://us.battle.net/wow/en/character/zuljin/Taggrung/advanced

Don't have records of previous NH bosses as we ran them the day before and I'm not familiar enough with logs to find them.

Realistically, the problem with that fight is that it lasted over 10 minutes; I legitimately thought it was a mythic kill because it went for so long! All my average kills are around 6 minutes; doesn't matter how good your dps or gear is the longer the fight the more your dps goes down; if it was a shorter fight you'd end up with a lot higher dps. Everything I saw was good, maybe a little more dps on the eyes from cleaving but everything else looked great!

Your armoury is showing you at 35% crit, 24% haste and 127% mastery so I can't really make much of a comment on your stats from that but it looks mostly fine!

      Looking for some advice about how to improve my DPS - I should be doing better than this I feel (using stomp build). My guild only raided NH HC and I got to the point where new gear was out-doing the 2pc 895 tier 19 set I had, which is why I'm not using 2pc tier 19 atm. If this was the wrong choice and I'm better dropping my ilevel to go back to it please let me know. I have most BM Leggos so again if I'm using the wrong combo please advise me. I would like to tweak my stats but not sure what gear would do me better than what I have. Any help you can give me would be so much appreciated.

      Hello, 
      I am concerned that I am severely under performing as a fury warrior. I can manage to parse typically in the 80s for almost every fight in heroic ToS with a few exceptions: Mistress, Host, Avatar. I'm currently 933 equipped and I'm not at all concerned about my stats... I know I should and could be parsing in the 90s. But I have no idea what I'm doing wrong. 
       
      My opener looks something like this: Charge, Pop Moonglaives trinket, Pop all CDS, Raging Blow, Oden's Fury, Rampage, then start normal priority rotation: Enraged RB>100 rage Rampage>RB>BT>FS. 
       
      I have recently discovered that I have been doing my execute phase entirely wrong. I just went and tried first two bosses of heroic ToS again. Parses went up slightly... Goroth: 83->89, Inquis:84->90 but still not where I need to be. 
      Another think I'd like to mention is that I try to prioritize Enraged RB @100 rage before hitting rampage. According to Kelade (one of top fury warriors in US), this is 100k dps difference. Although at times I find myself in an awkward situation where I'm at 100 rage with RB on CD and I literally have to wait a whole global to hit it... I'd like to know how to make that stop lol. 
       
      Last issue I'd like to bring up is this: Most of the time not all my CDs will line up perfectly together... BC, glaives, OF will be up but Avatar will be down. I'm slightly confused about when to use All/some of my cds... especially on fights like heroic KJ. Fights like Harj and Miss I'm confused about if I should hold all my cds for adds or blow them in the beginning along with prepot... I feel like prepot is a total waste without cds...
       
      Below you will find the link to my armory and logs. Please Help me. I need to be parsing much higher than I am. My guild is doing mythic and I don't want to be the one holding us back.

      Hello fellow hunters!
      I have more or less played hunter exclusively since Ulduar, and I've always done pretty decent, doing respectable DPS, using my utility to it's fullest and generally been a good raider. In Legion however, I felt as if that changed, and nothing ever "clicked" - I feel like I've done poorly the entire expansion so far, so much that I even quit for a while.
      Well, now my pretty casual guild has started progressing in mythic, and even though we've managed the three first cakewalk bosses, I want to do better at the harder ones, so I'm reaching out to you guys for help. To be honest, I have no idea where to start to better myself. I really suck at handling an/or interpreting logs, but I can tell I don't do really well from the rankings... mostly gray numbers. Also, my live DPS is pretty much 200k lower than my simmed (using Raidbots quicksim feature).
      Below, I will link the logs from our progress run in mythic last night, some wipes, but two kills (Demonic Inquisition and Harjatan). Hopefully you can gleam something I'm doing wrong from them - if not I can probably get some logs from our raid tomorrow. I'll also post a link to my armory, if that helps. Raidbots doesn't seem to function properly at the moment, the connection to armory fails all the time which means I can't post any sims. I will try and edit this post with some sims later on, if possible. :P

      Also, forgot to mention that I guess I'm willing to swap to BM if needed, but I really hate pets with a passion since the Deathwing fights, and having my pet swimming between the platforms, preventing me from using Kill Command...

      Hey, so I've recently decided to main a BM hunter for the rest of legion and was just curious if there was some helpful tips out there (I've been reading up on the guides/forum posts but trying to see if I'm doing ok).
       
      this is me. https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-us/character/nagrand/greenmidget
       
      sorry, I haven't done this before so I don't have any data to link or know how to use stuff like Warcraft logs or sims. I've also haven't done many runs of tombs yet so don't have any tier pieces.

      looking at the icy veins guides I've talented for dire frenzy but didn't realise how much mastery I ended up with. Have I gone too crazy with mastery, should I be adjusting my stat prio better? Thinking I should probably gem for more haste. Most of my enchants/ gems I'm using are just ones I had the highest rank for and cheapest to make so my necklace is probably enchanted wrong.
       
      i probably specced for mostly single target and think I've been doing fairly poorly for AoE damage compared to other people around my ilvl. Although I know to use multi-shot to refresh beast cleave I probably spam multi-shot more than the 4 secs needed, don't really use dire frenzy effectively, use titan's thunder basically whenever it's off cooldown, don't really know when I'm meant to be using aspect of the wild or whether I should be using beastial wrath in AoE fights. Should I be using murder of crows in AoE fights as well or is it just a waste of focus?
       
      For single target I think I'm doing alright so far (only recently got the legendary boots so not sure how much the kill command cooldown should affect my rotation). Still don't really know when the best time is to be using aspect of the wild but I was basically doing the same as the icy veins guide. My opening sequence is usually something like Murder of crows, beastial wrath, titans thunder, then just kill command, cobra shot, kill command cobra shot etc.
       
      Looking at icy veins guide I think I'm meant to be doing murder of the crows, beastial wrath, dire frenzy, titans thunder, then another dire frenzy straight away, aspect of the wild then normal rotation. After that it's just kill command/cobra shot I guess. While beastiality wrath is in effect should I only be spamming kill command/cobra shot for the quick cooldowns or should I still be using dire frenzy during this time? I use titan thunder when it's off cooldown and dire frenzy whenever it has 2 stacks. I usually just used murder of the crows when it was off cooldown but the guide seems to indicate that I should wait the extra 30 seconds and time it with my next bestial wrath. As for aspect of the wild I usually forget I even have this move and don't use it effectively, do I wait and combined it with bestial wrath? Wait and use it when I'm low on focus? Or use it as soon as it's off cooldown?
       
      Thanks for listening to my rambling and hopefully thanks for your reply.
       
      P.S. It's probably more of a personally choice or situational choice I guess but should I be talenting myself more for AoE for mythics. Example, one with the pack, volley, aspect of the beast?
