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!

      Hay,
       
      I seem to struggle to get better DPS. I figured out that i used chaos strike and blade dance to less. and i should use less Throw glaive and fellrush. 
      But i stil seem to have trouble getting my dps on.  Please take a look on the logs at the 14th. 
      I really dislike using the "eye beam build" (it feel slow to me) so i still use the 2221311 build.

      About Us
      Skunkworks is a guild for players who can not or do not want to commit to the time-intensive raid schedules of traditional "hardcore" guilds.
      However, we still maintain a high caliber player environment and make an efficient use of our raiding time.
      We raid Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7:00 - 11:00 PST, just 8 hours a week and never more.
       
      We are very protective of our guild environment and selective in recruitment. We are looking for solid players mechanically as well as intellectually.
      We all get paid to deal with idiots, why should we pay to spend our leisure time with them as well?
       
      Skunkworks has been around for multiple expansions and has historically always been at the top of the 2-night raiding guild scene.

      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.

      Hiya!
      Can someone tell me what i'm doing wrong with my frostmage, since it feels like I'm underperforming compared to other guys with the same ilvl.
      https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/pMdCBwHG6mQb712z This is a normal pug run I did yesterday.
      https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-gb/character/draenor/blastgasm link to my armory.
       
      Edit: Will add a bit more info now since I was in a hurry when i wrote this.
       
      I know i dont have the optimal legendaries. Only got 2 to drop on my mage. The gloves and the waist. During this normal run i probably had the wrong talent setup for some fights (arctic gale on tichondrius etc.). The question is, what can i improve? Do i need to get Better legendaries or is My rotation slightly off?

      Hello i was hoping someone could take a look over my logs to see if i'm doing something wrong. I personally think i'm doing everything right but i cant seem to get my DPS up and i'm always almost at the bottom of the logs. Any help would be awesome!
