BM dps loss after 7.2.5? New build?

47 posts in this topic

My ilvl 896 BM hunter w/ concordance was using the talents Dire stable, DF, BF, AMOC and killer cobra along with the 4pc t19 set, 24% crit, 17% haste, 80% mastery, Lego belt and Prydaz and doing terrible single target DPS today on the raid dummy using my usual rotation. I even dipped to 590k dps at one point. Without flasks and food this number was usually sitting above 800k, even peaking at 1.3m sometimes after applying CDs, so I'm wondering what I need to do to get back to my usual numbers? I know we got a buff in 7.2.5 but I'm really stumped as to why my build is just seemingly entirely useless now and if I'll ever be returning to it. I tried using stomp and swapping out my ring to be 29% crit, 17% haste and 70% mastery and saw a slight difference, but it just seems pretty crappy still.

Well, you didn't have the legendary shoulders before, which means that now that 2 charges of Dire Frenzy is baseline, you should not be using your "usual rotation". Learn how to run the rotation with 2 charges first. 

Also very important to note: not everything was buffs. The strongest artifact traits got nerfed significantly (the ones that affect Kill Command), the 4-piece bonus from Tier 19 was cut in half, Dire Frenzy now generates less focus and now it generates focus over 8 seconds instead of instantly. All those changes to DF and the tier set will affect your rotation, timers and focus regen. Still, the overall dps should go up for you, since you didn't have the shoulders. I saw a small decrease in dps in mine (I think, I haven't gone to raid to check against logs), but not that large.

How should I be integrating my 2 charges then? I noticed with stomp I was kinda focus starved, didn't like that. I was spreading them out, am I supposed to use them at once? Usually I'd do BW> use CDs > CS KC spam and a DF to keep my focus from hitting too low, or a racial silence (blood elf) My relics are indeed the KC ones, should I change them out too?

There's a few things the 2 charges can do.

For the opener use them spread out, definitely not back to back. Dire Frenzy puts an attack speed buff on your pet for 8 seconds, so use it every 6 or 7 seconds. The third charge will come in time so the buff doesn't fall off. I tend to throw my second Dire Frenzy when it's half the way to recharging. Like this your pet will get the 3 stacks of Dire Frenzy during Bestial Wrath, and a single Wild Call proc will extend it another ~15 seconds. Works even better during Bloodlust.

Another thing is that given that you have 2 charges, it is a lot more important not to use Dire Frenzy when Bestial Wrath is close to coming out of cooldown. Say, 8 seconds for the next BW, but your DF takes more than 8 seconds to recharge so you can just wait (unless you're using the Crit+OWTP build that makes Wild Call proc a lot) and lose nothing.

Sorry I made a mistake, Dire Frenzy doesn't generate less focus. For some reason I thought it did when I read the patch notes.

I tried the Crit Owtp build just now, I noticed a lot of procs, almost too many that I had no idea where to use them all lol. With that build, should I just keep it up whenever I get the proc since it seems to be popping up so often? Using my old build, the rule is to spread them out then I see?

With the changes made, the Dire Frenzy build results in significantly lower uptime on BW than the crit/stomp/owtp build (which I'm currently running and LOVING).

You would've gone from 50-60% uptime in BW to around 40%.

Read the section under rotation to find out the best opening sequence to use with Dire Frenzy. But for the rest of the fight, if you get procs it's usually good to hold onto it for a few seconds to get the most out of your Dire Frenzy buff - if you have just used one charge and get a proc, wait about 4-5 secs before using the new charge, then by the time it's recharged again you'll be able to get up to 3 stacks of the buff on your pet. It's a bit of a change but quite nice.

In general though the stomp build is pulling slightly ahead until ToS launches, when it'll only be viable if you obtain the new legendary ring, but also relies on a totally different stat priority.

Luckily I saved the rings/necks for this setup but the stats I run for the different builds are:

  • Dire Frenzy - 21% crit 18% haste 91% mastery
  • Crit/Stomp/OWTP - 34% crit 11% haste 72% mastery

In general though, BM was a bit iffy with nerfs/buffs - across the board it's generally the same, you just have to really focus on using the 2 charges as best you can to get as many stacks of the buff on your pet as possible for as long as possible.

I started inspecting other BMs around the lodge, I noticed a lot had started using WOTC, DF, and BF. I tried that with my first stat build, paying more attention to keeping DF buffs up. I used 25% crit, 17% haste, 80% mastery and was able to hold 700-800k, but sometimes i dipped to 600ish again. I went out to solo some BS world bosses and was doing 500-600kdps on them, usually I do like 700kish on them. I guess I do prefer keeping my current stats, I'll just wait until I can get my hands on some t20 I suppose. My AOE seems fine, so I'll just try to stay out of raids until then. I did have a question about managing the DF buff, it seems good to stack them but I've also been advised to not use the 2 charges in succession, at once. Does that mean just use the procs as they come, keeping DF on CD, using each charge as soon as it regenerates instead of holding onto 2 and using them at once, effectively stretching em out so you have longer uptime instead of a shorter uptime but with more stacks?

We got nerfed not buff, especially compared to other classes. Been wiping on mythic guldan for weeks and I am use to being between #1 and #4 in dps...2 BMs and 2 DK were fighting it out for the top. Now i am struggling to stay in the middle of the pack and to mnay pulls find myself on the bottom. There is huge difference right down to the feel of the spec. Shit last night felt slow. 

The spec overall needs a buff, all the qq from people without the shoulders have pushed the spec back into oblivion unless something isn't done about it. They gave every one 2 stacks and overcompensated on the nerfs.  

I am not a happy camper.

People that didn't already have the shoulders should have seen a buff.

However, in raid scenario you're comparing your own numbers to other classes. Anything can look like an excessive nerf if many other classes get better buffs. I haven't raided yet to see it, but my numbers on the dummy look pretty similar. The same thing happened when 7.1.5 came out; my numbers were consistent but ranking in raid dropped a lot. At that time they added a buff about a week later. I don't know what they have planned, but I wouldn't be surprised if they want Marksmanship to be the stronger spec.

I'm down over 200k consistently. I've tried multiple talent switches and gear swaps. The way Wild Call works now, to me, makes the flow feel a lot less fluid. I don't like this anymore.

I don't know what everyone else is doing so differently then, because running the crit/stomp/OWTP build last night gave me some awesome results. Check to make sure your stat priority is right if you use this build though.

Yes and no; if you're still running DF build you'll have a noticeable dps loss - the uptime on BW was severely nerfed and you have a lot more downtime. The buffs to our abilities were awesome, but not enough to make up for that uptime reduction. Have you tried crit/stomp/OWTP? Might be surprised at the difference.

Also have a look at all the BM changes - the artifact traits got nerfed and so did our BW uptime, but there were multiple buffs across the board. KC & CS both got a 20% damage increase, as well as the 6% aura buff. If you feel your dps is lower compared to your guildies, they probably just got buffed - some of my guild's top dps got a nice buff, and our frost DK switched to unholy and is pulling some awesome numbers.

What do you mean by the way it works now? It's not been changed at all, you just have two stacks of Dire Beast - the only thing that changed is how much cooldown reduction you get from it.

Refer to my comment above yours, don't use them in succession - try to get as much uptime on the buff as possible, and build up slowly to 2-3 charges rather than straight away, better to have a few more seconds of one stack and be able to build it up to 3 than it is to just spam 2 in a row.

Luthixx is 100% correct. Here are my sims (and I can say that my in game testing is reflecting the same):

DF / BF Build with 84% Mastery, 18% Haste, 26% Crit = 972,508 DPS

Stomp / OWTP build with 72% Mastery, 16% Haste, and 33% Crit = 1,000,800 DPS

Not a huge difference, but enough to be worth going for. I also prefer the play style of OWtP. The constant procs make for a quick and constant feel.

Yes and no;

The answer is yes. Your welcome to talk about another talent or this and that. 

but over 13,000 BM parses since 7.2.5 hit and there is enough evidence to state "our damage compared to other classes have been significantly nerfed". 

The guide on this website don't give me warm and tingly feelings about teir 20 set bonus. 

@ the moment there is strong evidence suggesting we need a buff.

I had gotten the shoulders about a month or so ago so I have had practice getting used to 2 charges DF. Personally i use one charge at start with BW, then do back and forth CS-KC a few times and hit it again (usually when I see the charge at about 75% to being recharged). I also try to make sure to always have the charges rolling never sit at 2. I dont use stomp, Simcraft has it as a DPS loss least for me for single target. If you are focus starved you could try changing the lvl 15 talent Dire Stable for the extra focus. My hunter is 899, 27 crit, 14 haste, 79 mastery unbuffed and in a heroic court I hit 2mil burst when usually it was 1.5mil. Its just a heroic dungeon boss I realize that (waiting for raid night fri and sat to get a true feel for the changes) but in raids I usually parse for 80% for my ilvl bracket, usually a fight or two in the 90's. Having 2 charges does feel weird, so just practice with it some and your numbers will climb back up.

I ran some sims after finally updating simcraft, and the stomp build was ahead by about 15k. I don't know what everyone else is doing, but my sims alone are 60k higher than they were pre-patch and my dps usually reflects that. 

Conso, just to check, are you running OWTP with DF or just the usual DF build? Both of the builds were a dps increase for me but just wanted to see why you weren't trying the zoo spec.

Greetings,

short Question to Luthixx. I just checked you on the armory / warcraftlogs. Two small questions:

1) Will you stay on 34% Crit, 9 % Haste, 77 % Mastery?
2) Did you have any clue about a WA for the Chest Buff / Stacks ( got mine this morning and it is horrible to follow the CS stacks )

Thanks and happy hunting

Hey hey!

1) Currently with my stat priority, that's just what I've achieved with my current setup. I only just changed out the bracers for the chest. Those stats are doing pretty good for me, but given the tomb trinkets I'll end up getting Cradle of Anguish and getting a bit more haste from that.

2) I'll look into a WA for you and get back to you when I get the chance, but realistically the buff lasts for 8 secs and you should be using CS within that time frame normally anyway. I haven't had to find a way to track it since I find myself using CS quite frequently anyway. 

Here's hoping my next legendary is the new ring, I'm in love with the zoo build and would hate to go back to Dire Frenzy.

I toss in just to put a little by my experience :

- Stated that i had only the time to get in raid and not even  a single minute of test about new stuffs , i found interesting this build u can check in this log :

https://www.warcraftlogs.com/rankings/11#boss=1863&class=Hunter&spec=BeastMastery&bracket=23&partition=3 

Etreus Mythic fight , and think that i had to go melee too tohelp tnk soak dmg with other melee , so i wasnt free in none of the phases . 

After 7.2.5. i was 2nd in my bracket with my sitty ( jk ) legendaries , still must find shoulders xD and ofc now aiming for chest and eventually ring  .

I find rotation very fluent , never focus starving , prolly focus dumping , and this enw feeling with shoulder effect is awsome . 

Only thing i swapped by the best is to get as much crit asi  can with mastery ignoring completely haste .

 

A question : is still 865 BI trinket better than 905 Foci ? ( cant swap convergence cause of bracers , till i get another lgendary )

According to the chart, Foci at 905 vs 865 BTI is probably slightly ahead.  I guess I am used to BTI play style,  The Foci didn't proc very much and the randomness of the buffs changes how I should play based on it.  Just my 0.02.

Might try it again now that I have concordance.

Your dps went up a lot more because you didn't have the Mantle of Command pre-patch 7.2.5 Luthixx. For those of us who had it the ptch was a big nerf to the DF/BF build and a tiny buff with the Crit/OWTP build, which is actually below the 6% base damage buff they gave to BM.

Where are you getting that Kill Command was buffed? I haven't seen that anywhere, nor I have seen it hit for higher numbers. Both Jaws of Thunder and Pack leader got nerfed, which decreases the damage of Kill Command.

I've usually found the dps charts to be unreliable except for the very highest-end players. From my experience, it's relatively easy to get high parses as a BM hunter because we don't lose dps from movement and we have the easiest rotation in the game, so you can hit very close to your max damage consistently and reliably. But the charts compare classes at the same parse percentile, which is skewed down for BM, because the same parse percentile means a worse BM player. In practice BM performs pretty well, unless every single player in your group is a hardcore overpowered master.

 

I personally don't dislike the OWTP playstile but it's a lot more RNG-based, so real numbers will vary significantly from pull to pull. The simulation gives you an average of thousands of runs.

I agree with that statement of yours, which was why I included my own logs on Guldan progression pre-patch and after patch, from the naked eye you can tell that I have fallen from being middle to top 3-5 while being lower ilvl, I have fallen way down to middle/most of the time in the bottom, While I understand that many classes got buffs, at the end of the day beside numbers /ranking wise just from my own logs my numbers are lower than before  the patch hit.  I'm Lil bunn fufu btw the only bm hunter in the raid.

The changes were listed above. Both abilities there got a reasonable buff, but with the massive decrease in our artifact traits that took a little bit off it.
 
The only reason BF/DF got nerfed is because the changes to our spec are being based around T20 set bonuses, not T19. Yes, for the next few weeks until you get into ToS and gear up you will not experience the same level of dps.
 
There's literally no reason to complain about the state of BM this week - T19 4pc was nerfed so hard because they didn't want us keeping that through ToS. 
 
Your dps will go back up again when you've got the gear that these changes were based around.

      <Exo> is an old guild from Dragonblight which semi-recently transferred to Stormrage in search of mythic raiders. We are a guild full of experienced raiders always looking to expand our roster. 
      We are not a world first guild nor do we aim to be. Our primary goal is to get loot and have a good time, however this still means on progression nights we do expect you to show up, put on your serious face, and kill some shit.
      Our raids are on 3 nights a week; Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday from 9pm-12 Server Time (EST). The Monday raids are optional farm/alt nights (Normal/Heroic) with Tuesday/Wednesday being mandatory progression nights.
      Currently we are in need of any competent DPS, off specs are always a welcome addition but not required. Performance and skill will be looked at above gear, experience, or class.
      We do not have a minimum item level required to join our raid team, however we will require you to catch up in our Monday farm-runs up until you are at a mythic level.
      If you have any questions or are interested in joining or trialing with us please add Pasha#1800, Java#1849 or Bushido#1988 on bnet to talk with an officer.

      Guild: Dawn of the Dead | http://www.dotd.org   Faction: Horde | Server: Zul'jin (PvE) | Timezone: EST   Current Progression: 4/8M Uldir   We've been raiding max size raids continuously since WoW has been released and are the only guild to have done so here on Zul'jin. We have strong leadership, no drama, and plans to keep raiding for years to come. Unlike many guilds, we're not recruiting for the short term, and we don't over-recruit.   Website: www.dotd.org
        Raid Times: Our schedule is 8-11 EST Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday.   Needs: We are a small guild, and we expect high attendance. As such, we recruit people to raid, and desire people who can step in and contribute immediately. We don’t recruit people to sit around, so all spots are for raiders who can expect to be in most every raid.   We are currently looking to add skilled and reliable:   Ranged DPS:
      High: Warlock
      Medium: Mage, S.Priest, Boomkin
      1 Healer:
      High: MW Monk
      *ALL exceptional applicants will be considered regardless of the class.   What we ask of you:   Effort: Not all applicants come from highly progressed guilds, and that’s okay, but it does mean that you need to be prepared. We recruit the player, not the gear, but we do ask that you have some current experience and be a minimum iLvl of 370. You need to have the best gear available to you, (BoE, Crafted) with gems and top end enchants. You also need to be able to display an understanding of your class mechanics, role in a raid, and ability to learn new fights.   Attitude: It’s a game. We play for fun. How you fit in with the guild is taken very seriously. We’re a bunch of mostly 18-30 guys and girls who have fun playing together. While we have a good time, we also know when it’s time to buckle down and work hard.   Skill: The best way to determine skill is to see you in a raid. Because we don’t wish to have anyone transfer that we’re not serious about, be able to express your knowledge of your class and why you’re an exceptional player who would be an asset and is worth a shot. Gear will come with time. Skill will not. Impress us with your knowledge of your class and gameplay mechanics. Feel free to share any logs, theorycrafting, or other work you've done.   Commitment: We make a commitment to you, and ask you to do the same to us. A raid takes a team of more than 20 individuals working together. We rely on you to show up to raids, research your class and new fights, respect your fellow players, and notify us when you are unavailable. You rely on us for gear, experience, and coordination. It's a large investment of our time to train and gear new players, and we ask the same investment on your part so that we can each benefit.   We have a variety of informational resources available to prospective applicants on our web site: http://www.dotd.org-- please refer to our "Applications" forum for detailed information. Also feel free to visit us on WoWProgresss for more information and kill videos! http://www.wowprogress.com/guild/us/...wn+of+the+Dead   Should you wish to speak to someone in-game, please don't hesitate to reach out to an officer directly, whisper Xanah (Xana#1662) or Jeare (Jeare#1759).   We look forward to hearing from you soon!
