Hello all, I've been in-between two gear sets the last couple days and it's become a headache of sorts to figure out the best combo to use for single-target.

Here is my armory:

Issue 1) Breaking 4 piece T19 for two pieces of gear that are drastically better; the T19 chest - normal, and legs - 880 w/ mastery socket. I have T20 gloves, helm, and legs if that helps. I have full T19.

Issue 2) Using Convergence > Tome of Unraveling Sanity; Tome sims better but 4 piece T19 boosts Convergence's usefulness.

Issue 3) KJ's Burning Wish - Are the stats good enough for single-target? I have no other DPS legendary besides the boots and KJ's that doesn't break a tier bonus, T19 or T20. I have the helm, the cape, the neck, wrists, the two crappy rings, etc. I have heroic Convergence, KJ, 910 Tome, and a mythic Bloodthirsty Instinct

Issue 4) **Simulations do not match in-game dummy testing**

The gearset on armory is what out-performs 4 piece T19 in single-target dummy tests.

TLDR; I need help. Any info/advice would be much appreciated.

MM does rely quite heavily on 4pc T20 and either ring/boots or ring/gloves, so hopefully you get both soon!

Tome isn't the best dps trink, you'll probably find convergence combined with your boots still works better, your uptime will be a lot higher than that crit will make it worth.

Realistically, even Prydaz would probably be better than KJ in terms of ST if you can find a better trinket to replace it.

In-game testing and sims being so vastly different usually comes down to the playstyle, as well as any uptimes you may have to consider. Might be worth trying to check out your logs and finding issues within that that's leaving you with results not matching up to sims (although perfection to sims won't always be possible).

MM T19 got nerfed a fair bit though, so it probably won't sim anywhere near as well as you'd hope, but just try using the gear compare function on to try and find the best setup you can. Do you have any recent logs or would you be willing to try and get some that might compare the biggest sets of gear you're thinking about?

I got T20 4 piece last night, and that resolved most of my issues. I have logs from last night and will comb through them. I have all the leggos except for the ring, belt, and gloves - so that will be resolved in time.

So Prydaz and a combo of Convergence, Tome, or Cradle > Locket of Splintered Souls w/ socket + KJ and Tome, Convergence, or Cradle for ST?

        I was wondering if anyone would be able to put together a tmog to go with the Thas'dorah challenge appearance. The bow looks awesome and I used what I had to get something going. I'm trying to tie the blue in to the flowers on the bow and the gold into the quiver. Here's what I have so far. I would be more than happy to farm stuff too if that's what it took.
      Thanks for your help!

      Hello everyone.
      I've been playing hunter MM as my main for a while, but lately i've noticed that my DPS output might not be as high as it should. A couple of months ago, I tought it might be my ilvl or my mastery that was too low, but i've tried different builds and i still can't get closer to some other hunters I run into some ToS H pugs.
      I'm actually sitting at 938 iLvl. Don't have many BiS, but my stats are kinda high. My weapon relics are bad(low ilvl, i'm still stuck with 915 relics), and I still didn't get any other good legendary besides the Soul of the Huntmaster.
      So my question is: Am I doing something wrong or it's just my relics/trinkets that aren't very decent? I was happy when i get past the 1M dps mark, but now i'm stuck at that point, and I can't see to get past that.
      Here's my armory link:
      Hopefully you guys can help me out on this. Thanks!

      <Trust> may be what you're looking for if you enjoy killing internet dragons with a group of like minded players! Currently we are 8/9 Heroic, soon to be stepping into Mythic ToS. We are recruiting to finish rounding out our raid team. <Trust> is located on the [US] Doomhammer/Baelgun pve servers, alliance side! Check us out!
      About Us:
      <Trust> is a recently formed guild, founded by a group of long time players that have been raiding together for a couple of years now. Founded out of a desire to continue raiding in a casual-progression manner, we work towards defeating mythic bosses. <Trust> is a raiding guild, first and foremost.
      Our Raids:
      <Trust> maintains a progression-oriented 2-day semi-casual raiding team. That's 'semi' as in we expect our team members to always prioritize life first; but not 'casual' as in we take downing bosses less seriously. We strive to maintain a balance of taking our progression raids seriously while having plenty of laughs along the way.
      Raid Schedule:
      Tuesday & Thursday: 5p – 8p server (8p – 11p eastern)
      Friday(optional): 5p – 8p server (8p – 11p eastern)
      <Trust> is looking for full time Resto Druid, Mages, Hunters, and Warlocks for our raid team. We are also open for good people to join as casual players, pvpers, with the option to join farm content or alt raids.
      More Info:
      Feel free to reach out to us:
      Recruitment Officer:
      In game - Treylawny
      Battletag - Treylawny#1813
      Guild Lead:
      In game – Oleic
      Battletag - Jarg#1591
      Website and Application: <Trust> (US)Doomhammer/Baelgun
      (The app is quick and painless as its used primarily to get your name to us quickly!)
      Discord is our way of communicating during raid; also used for casual chatting!

      Who are we?
      Volatile are a group of mostly ex-mythic raiders, looking to get back into mythic raiding and for us to be able to do that we need some more people to fill the gaps. Besides raiding our friendly bunch of members enjoy running mythic+ on daily basis, helping out with world quests among other things. Our discord is usually filled with members for daily banter and weekly fun. If you enjoy all that, you most certainly will enjoy your stay in Volatile.
      Who are we looking for?
      We're primarily looking for ranged DPS to fill out the roster. But we are also interested in any dps class with a good healing offspec. Even though your class isn't listed below, don't be afraid of getting in contact with us.
      Tanks - Closed
      Healers - Closed
      Ranged DPS - Open
      Melee DPS - Closed
      Overall we're looking for people with a good knowledge of their class/spec who know how to improve their gameplay. Being fairly thick skinned and being able to accept constructive criticism, as well as the occasional jab from some of our more 'outspoken' members, is a big plus too.
      When do we raid?
      We raid two times a week as standard, we often have an additional raid day if necessary. See raid times below. 
      Thursday: 8pm - 11pm (Server time)
      Monday: 8pm - 11pm (Server time)
      Tuesday: 8pm - 11pm (Additional day)
      Application process:
      We believe the best way to get to know if someone is right for the guild is just to have a chat, rather than go through a long application process. So we'll have a chat, look at logs and possibly run some M+ to get to know each other. If you're interested in joining our mythic raid team, contact any of the following:
      Contact us:
      Xadel#2609, Xadel (ingame)
      Passive#2900, Malenky (ingame)
      Òops#2597, Drainphase (ingame)
      Ohajay#2606, Draconem (ingame)
      Hjp#21650, Phynn (ingame)

      Hello :) 
      I'm a bit discouraged by my DPS in Nighthold. I started this expansion as a resto druid and decided to switch back to my hunter (mained her in Warlords) to help out with DPS in our raid. I've been playing catch up for a month or so and my Mastery may be a little low. I feel like I have the rotation down ok....but I struggle a bit with which talents to use on each fight.
      At any rate any help would be awesome. Thanks so much.
      Here are my logs from last night.
