Hey everybody.

 

I need some serious help with my hunter. It's in survival spec and its doing way too little DPs than he should be doing (roughly 70-80k average DPs per current fight).

Could anybody help me with optimizing my class to increase its performence please cause I am totally confused to what I am doing wrong and all feedback will be helpful?

 

Thank you.

You're still a little low on expertise (try to get that to 7.5% - use Ask Mr. Robot) and you're missing your sha gem on your weapon but I can understand that if you haven't progressed that far in the legendary quest line yet.  I don't see anything obviously wrong with your equipment/talents so I've got to assume that your issue is with your rotation.

 

Are you keeping serpent sting & black arrow at close to 100% up time?  Are you hitting CD's appropriately?  Are you frequently focus starved (when explosive shot is up) or capped?

 

If you can replace that weapon with a ToT weapon, even LFR would be a big upgrade you'll find your DPS jump significantly.  Go buy some Mogu Runes of Fate from Timeless Isle for 1000 coins per and run ToT LFR using the bonus coins on Tortos, Durumu, and Iron Qon.

 

hope this helps,

Cross - US Thrall (538 SV Hunter)

Hey there, thanks for the reply! :)

I do need to do some reforging Especially for my hit cap which i cant find a way to bring it down to 7.5 :(

The Sha-touched Gem, I'm not so far from the quest chain to get it now :)

from time to time i do get focus starved but i never let my focus go up to 100 (normally make it go to 80-90 max). I use black arrow as soon as it becomes available as well as Explosive shot (especiallu during lock-and-load) and I keep track of my Dot's with Weak Auras (along with explosive shot, Black Arrow, scatter shot and concussive shot( I also use Tell me when along with Omnicc to keep track of my cooldowns. My rotation is similar to the guide found here on Icy-Veins.

My CD's are in a macro for my burst which consists of Stampede with Rapid fire (use to be more but now Readiness is removed). and then cast murder of crows and Dire beast (if its available) (going to start using potions along with it as I will be doing Raids).

I've being trying to replace the weapon for months now with at least a 502 but I had no luck with getting one, even with charms which really sucks lol.

I recommend using fervor over dire beast as the focus regen from it is not stated and during dry periods you can juse use fervor. Personally i wouldn't track scatteror concussive shot unless you pvp frequently as they dont have much use in Pve.  Always have at least 30 focus so you can use explosive shot off cooldown. If lock and load procs you need to use it asap. Because if I remember it correctly the proc itself has a 10 cooldown so you have to consume so you can get more. Delaying abilities like that can add up and potentially 5-10k dps.

      Hey everyone,
      So, I think my problem is my gear as I have been trying to rack my brain on why my dps is not that great in raids. Some of it I admit is probably not sticking 100% to my rotation, but any help/suggestions would definitely be appreciated.

      Thanks in advance! 😎

      SERVER: Illidan
      RAID TIMES: Fridays & Sundays 10pm - 1am Server Time.
      PROGRESSION: 2/11M
      CURRENTLY RECRUITING*
      Tank All DPS (Healer offspec preferred but not required) Possibly accepting other roles! ABOUT US
      Now recruiting for BFA!
      Currently looking for skilled and laid back Tank & DPS for the upcoming expansion.
      We're semi-casual in terms of the time we spend raiding, but are serious about progression, attendance, and performance.
      Booty Pirates is a close-knit late night guild that hangs out in Discord frequently. We enjoy joking around, playing alts, doing Mythic+, playing other games, or just hanging out. 
      Fun guild events are scheduled often!
      Overall, we're very social with guild members that actually talk to each other.
      (18+ required, we talk like pirates!)
      GOALS FOR BFA
      In Battle for Azeroth we plan to push Mythic more than we did previously in Legion, and not spend nearly as much time on Heroic. 
      This means we will jump into Mythic/Heroic weekends as soon as the majority of the Heroic gear is done. (Mythic Friday and Heroic Sunday, for example, until we phase Heroic out completely.) 
      SCHEDULE UNTIL BFA**
      Fridays currently mandatory for core raiders for a partial Heroic clear.
      Sundays reserved for non-mandatory misc WoW activities (M+, leveling alts for BFA etc.) or other non-WoW related events.
      If ilvl is high enough, you can join for Friday (950+) and Sunday on any character, not just the one you want to play in BFA.
                *The class you play in BFA can be different from what you play now; we will be flexible until the expansion hits.
                **Schedule subject to changes.
      JOINING THE BOOTY PIRATES CREW
      Make sure to add me on Battle.net and/or fill out our short 6 question app to join us. We look forward to speaking with you!
      Start the app here!

      Hi all,
      Im not sure where to post this but im hoping someone can help or at least point me in the right direction.
      TL;DR - My DPS is awful and i want to increase it
      I played fire & frost spec back in cata upto 85 and have recently got back into WoW again and finally realised what people talk about when they play "end game" i wish id known about raiding sooner!
      However, My DPS isnt great at all im eq 959 ilvl but my DPS comes out as low as 8-900 sometimes or i can hold a steady 1.1-1.2M. Simc comes out around 1.7M (obviously in a perfect world) but i still feel im doing something wrong.
      Ive watched videos, read forums and im sure my rotation is right. Im using Flask, Food and Runes and Pre-potting. I have some logs here of garothi.
      https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/XRqCaL6jFVpW9MnG#fight=5&type=summary&source=23&view=events
      and this is my Raider.io - https://raider.io/characters/eu/twisting-nether/Buksh
      Not sure if ive posted this in the right place OR if ive given enough info to help. but anything would be hugely appreciated.
