BM DPS Help: My DPS Has Gotten Low

Hey there, looking for some common mistakes I might be making in my gear or dps rotation that I am just not seeing. You'd think it would be pretty basic but my dps has been all over the place recently. 

I will be fighting kiljaeden (pretty standard) and have anywhere from 650-850dps average for the fight. It's gotten me kicked a couple times obviously despite being good on mechanics. I've reviewed several guides, made sure I am enchanted and gemmed... cannot figure it out. What am I doing wrong? (Yes low on meters for other fights as well though not always). 

924 iLevel, wearing legendary belt and chest (dont have tier to wear shoulders and chest)

67% Mastery (issue?) 
24% Critical Strike
29% Haste

Opener: Blood Fury, Tome (trinket), Crow, Bestial Wrath, Dire Frenzy, KC, AspectotW, Titan's Thunder, CS, KC, DF...

Repeat KC, CS, And cast DF whenever buff falls off or procs bonus. 

Talent Build is:
Cobra
Frenzy
Posthaste
Bestial
Int
Crow
Killer Cobra

Helps, tips, advice welcome. 

Are there common mistakes to rotation i might be making even if u dont see it here? Should i be working hard to gear swap? I am at a loss and it is getting frustrating. Thanks

Here is what i see my friend. You need way more Mastery. You are running the DF build so your talents are correct, you want the 4pT20 which is correct, and you have 2 of the best legendaries equipped. However, 1 of your rings, your neck, and your bracers have no Mastery at all. This is your top stat as a DF BM hunter. Looking at your logs you seem to be playing the DF stack game pretty well which is usually where DF hunters are lacking proper execution. Where you do seem to be losing some dps is during Aspect of the Wild. You want to be sure to have 2-3 DF stacks for the duration of it. This means delaying DF a bit when you know that AotW is coming up. The haste from 3 stacks with Thunderlash will put out some high damage on the target. Those are the only 2 things I see readily. Get more mastery by swapping out those offset non mastery pieces and make sure you have high DF stacks during AotW.

Thanks, will do. Really appreciate checking my logs for the detailed view. Will try to better line up AotW usage. As for the mastery... just trying what gear I can. Those pieces without mastery either replaced pieces without mastery or were 20+ iLevel higher... Doing best I can there. 

Some people have recommended going back for T19 2 piece and saying fuck the gear difference for stomp build. Thoughts on this? Not viable as I get higher gear?

Personal pref really. With no T19 and 4pT20, the builds are close enough to just play what you like imo. I think DF is theoretically higher but not by enough that that is the only way to go. The crit build benefits from 2pT19 more than the DF build does so stacking 2pT19 with 4pT20 is very popular for Stomp hunters. At some point though, the increased ilvl from ToS gear will overtake the 2pT19 bonus and ppl will start dropping 2pT19 bonus for the much higher ilvl ToS gear. Running 2p + 4p also requires good legendaries in off-set slots. If all you have is head and pants, you are out of luck. if you have Belt and the new Ring, you are set. Holding onto the 2pT19 will yield stomp hunters more dps but only to a point and that point is on a case by case basis. if your T19 is on LFR and now you are getting T20 Heroic, its probably time to drop it but only personal sims using your gear and what is available to equip will determine the bests combo of set bonuses and legendaries.

That depends on what tier 19 pieces and legendaries you have. I use the tier 19 2-set, tier 20 4-set with the legendary belt and ring of the huntsman, with Dire Frenzy and Blink Strikes (since the huntsman gives me Bestial Fury already), which works really well, so that's another alternative if you don't like Stomp so much.

Looking at your logs it seems you've been using Stomp for two weeks though, so I'm not sure why you wrote that you're not. Do you not like it?

I would recommend changing the neck enchant for Mark of the Trained Soldier. If you look at your logs Hidden Satyr only deals around 2% of your damage.

      Does anyone have issue where a ton of versatility gear is dropping?
      In the effort to increase my item level, so I can do heroics (i know I'm late to the game), all the higher level gear that drops has versatility, do BM hunters need versatility now or is this just bad luck?

      Anybody can help with this? I'm using simcraft to get the stat priority for my MM's gear but it is giving me crazy results, not sure why. Agility=83.13, Ap=80.24, CritRating=0.83, HasteRating=46.84, MasteryRating=1.04, Versatility=217.72, Dps=297.72
      According to stat priority lists, such as the icy veins one, mastery should be the predominant stat. Now I understand that it can change depending on gear and other things, but this much???
      I've attached a screenshot wit the settings in simcraft, in case it helps.
      Can anybody tell me what I'm doing wrong? Sorry if it's a noob question.
      Cheers!

      Hello all! I figured i'd make this thread to get some up to date information on the AOE rotation for unholy.  Currently i'm 935 ilvl, and I run Incstructor's fourth lesson and Soul. (For lack of a better option.) However it is my understanding that these two legendaries make for the strongest aoe rotation. Is this true?

       That is my first question. My second is what is the priority for aoe when running these two. Is it to wait for defile to drop, then festering wound a target a couple times, then Scourge Strike? Or is the priority to just put Wounds on then pop them asap, dropping the defile whenever it's available. Typically I wait for defile before I start building Wounds, but given the soul and the extra talent, i suspect it's better to just aoe without Defile if it's unavailable or perhaps just better to rarely spend runes on defile? Curious as to your thoughts!

      Hi, 

      Im having wierd issue with Opportunity skill. It happens everytime I  have 5cp+ and  Opportunity proc.

      What Im doing is casting Run Through with 5cp+, note that I have Opportunity proc, after using Run Through my Ruthlessness skill refounds 2cp so Im using free Pistol Shot with Opportunity procs. Problem is IM NOT GETTING 3rd combo point. 

      Anyone having simmilar issue  ?  Cant find any informations.
