Need help with my Survival Hunter

4 posts in this topic

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.

      <Sodium Rising> is an alliance raiding guild on Stormrage (US). We are recruiting for Nighthold progression.
      Who we are: Raiders from Vanilla and top 40 US raiding experience through current content looking to challenge ourselves with progression and achievements. Our goal is to down all current content on heroic and experience mythic modes before subsequent nerfs, while maintaining a two night a week schedule.
      What we offer: Experienced, stable leadership with years of raiding experience. Free repairs. We have implemented a Master Crafter system. Raiders are required to donate 30 bloods or materials weekly to supply the bank with flasks, potions or food. If you are unable to do so, you may supply your own raiding materials.
      Loot is RCLootCouncil. Discord for communication. Off-night mythics, Karazhan and PVP is strongly encouraged.
      Raid Times: Friday, Saturday 8:30pm EST - 11:30pm EST
      What we expect: Individuals will come prepared for raids, gemmed & enchanted, having read up on strategies, and contributed to their gearing with mythics and world quests outside of normal raid times. Raiders will run the appropriate addons to assist with raiding such as DBM/Skada/Recount. Racism, sexism, and drama will not be tolerated in any form.
      Raiders should know their class, or where to find the appropriate information. Additionally, they should be open to give as well as receive constructive, positive feedback in an adult raiding environment.
      Current needs:
      Any ranged!
      If interested please contact Hero#11693, Catlady#1953, Nawibo#1688 or Rheshi#1686

      About Us
      We’re a Mythic raiding guild of close friends looking to meet new people and have fun, all while progressing at a steady pace.
      We offer a competitive raiding atmosphere on a very minimal schedule.  Raiding only 9 hours a week and being competitive is a tough task, so we want people who are not only reliable, but know how to make the most of a short period of time.
      Past progression included pre-patch kill of Mu’ru, Kil’jaeden, Yogg-Saron (0 Light), Algalon, Anub-arak, Lich King, Cho’gall, Sinestra, Deathwing, Lei Shen, Ra-den, and Garrosh.
       
       
      Raid Times
      Tuesday-Thursday 10PM-1AM CST (server time) or 8-11PM PST. 
      Only NINE hours a week!!!
       
       
      Progression
      Emerald Nightmare (7/7 Mythic)
      Trial of Valor (3/3 Heroic)
      Nighthold (3/10 Mythic, 10/10 Heroic)
       
       
      Recruitment Needs
      Healer
      --Druid
      Melee DPS
      --any competitive, high DPS
      Ranged DPS
      --any competitive, high DPS
       
       
      **All quality players regardless of class will ALWAYS be considered**
       
       
      What We’re Looking For
      -Be reliable – show up to raids on time on a consistent basis.
      -Understand your class- knowing when to swap to a different talent for a specific fight can often push a raid group over the top. Knowing when to play fire instead of arcane, or survival instead of marks is also a very important quality.  This included all hybrid classes that have damage and healing specs.
      -Experience, skill and gear – We are looking for people wo want to progress seriously and have a capability to play your class to a high level. We expect applicants to have combat logs to prove this as well.
      -Attitude – We have a fairly laid back raid atmosphere, but you must be willing to accept criticism.  If you are told you are messing up repeatedly, it is nothing personal, but we may sit you for the fight to get a kill.
      -Outside raid participation – Artifact power and legendries are two systems put in place in Legion that have an impact on raiding.  We are looking for raiders that perform their own player progression outside of raids (mythic+, artifact power farming, etc.) We do not require our raiders to be at 54 traits, but each raider must actively pursue this goal. 
      -Having an alt is a bonus, but by no means required.
       
       
      What We Offer
      -A competitive raid environment
      -A stable guild that has existed for many years
      -Other friendly players with multiple classes to socialize and play with
       
       
      Contact Info
      If any of this interests you at all, please feel free to contact us in game or on our website.
      We DO NOT do formal applications. After an interview on Discord, we will set you up with a try out during our farm run.  In the end, it’s your play that should decide whether you get into the guild or not.
