529 Beastmaster DPS issues after 5.4

2 posts in this topic

Hello there Everyone in Forum Land, First time poster here.

 

Perhaps some of you can help me with an issue I've been having for a few weeks now.

 

I've only been back in MoP since about Feburary, I didn't play from the end of Wrath. My DPS in my old guild wasn't a concern really, ToT was out but our guild wasn't really geared to raid ToT regularly easily (after we lost our core), and I was still gearing up and getting used to the game again. There in lies the issue though. Since moving to a new guild where most of my other raid mates are all 530 and above, my DPS has suffered a huge loss. So my raid leader spoke to me. Sent me to others in guild to try and get their help, but all the other top hunters in our guild are survivalist and personally? I'm not really a fan of surv, I've been beastmaster since vanilla, not being beast just feels weird to me. I'd like to avoid changing to surv unless I ABSOLUTELY have to, I'd be happy just getting my dps to stay fairly consistent again and at least get up there to compare with the other hunters in guild.

 

Since then I've spent the last couple weeks trying new rotations, glyphs, reforges, gems...Everything. I'm even switching comps this weekend to a spare to see if maybe that could also be playing a part in why my dps is so low compared to other hunter's I've seen in similar gear or even lower gear then my own.

 

I'm still not at all happy with the results. My sustained is suffering, though my burst is fine, but now on long fights my dps drops from upwards of 170-190k down to less then 150. I'm still not sure what I am doing wrong and it's getting to the point now where I am not enjoying my hunter nearly as much as I did pre 5.4. Granted, it is an improvement from the other week but I've run into a brick wall and can't seem to get past it.

 

Any help I would be SO grateful for. I don't want to lose my raid spot....

 

Anyway! On with the show

Last DPS graph from an LFR I did after I'd already left. I didn't manage to grab a screenie before that however. Think it was Primordius. Sorry I don't have anything better to link

Rotation/Priority wise I don't think I'm really doing anything different then what's recommended in guides like Icy Veins etc etc.

 

1. Bestial Wrath > pre pot / cast cobra shot for 2pc bonus Thunderhawk with Dire Beast macroed with BW

2. Hunter's Mark (glyphed or manual)

3. Kill Command

4. Serpent Sting, apply once normally.

5. Glaive Toss

6. Dire Beast

7. Focus Fire

8. Arcane Shot

9. Cobra shot

10. Stampede when Bestial Wrath wears off with Rapid Fire for pet attack speed

 

 

Thanks ahead of time folks! I really appreciate it.

First off you need to hit the 7.5% exp cap to ensure that everything hits your target.

Try these weights for reforging.

Now as for the rotation:

What I do is (opener)

Kill Command (applies hunters mark)

Serpent Sting

Glaive Toss

Cobra Shot until KC is ready

Bestial Wrath

KC

Dire Beast

AmoC

Stampede

Rapid Fire

Cobra Shot

KC

Glaive Toss

After that it's using KC, Glaive, BW (when I can get 2 KC and/or AmoC in) and Dire Beast on cd. Use Arcane Shot for filler/to dump focus and cobra to refresh SS dot and gain focus.

      Hello, 
      I am concerned that I am severely under performing as a fury warrior. I can manage to parse typically in the 80s for almost every fight in heroic ToS with a few exceptions: Mistress, Host, Avatar. I'm currently 933 equipped and I'm not at all concerned about my stats... I know I should and could be parsing in the 90s. But I have no idea what I'm doing wrong. 
       
      My opener looks something like this: Charge, Pop Moonglaives trinket, Pop all CDS, Raging Blow, Oden's Fury, Rampage, then start normal priority rotation: Enraged RB>100 rage Rampage>RB>BT>FS. 
       
      I have recently discovered that I have been doing my execute phase entirely wrong. I just went and tried first two bosses of heroic ToS again. Parses went up slightly... Goroth: 83->89, Inquis:84->90 but still not where I need to be. 
      Another think I'd like to mention is that I try to prioritize Enraged RB @100 rage before hitting rampage. According to Kelade (one of top fury warriors in US), this is 100k dps difference. Although at times I find myself in an awkward situation where I'm at 100 rage with RB on CD and I literally have to wait a whole global to hit it... I'd like to know how to make that stop lol. 
       
      Last issue I'd like to bring up is this: Most of the time not all my CDs will line up perfectly together... BC, glaives, OF will be up but Avatar will be down. I'm slightly confused about when to use All/some of my cds... especially on fights like heroic KJ. Fights like Harj and Miss I'm confused about if I should hold all my cds for adds or blow them in the beginning along with prepot... I feel like prepot is a total waste without cds...
       
      Below you will find the link to my armory and logs. Please Help me. I need to be parsing much higher than I am. My guild is doing mythic and I don't want to be the one holding us back.

      Hello fellow hunters!
      I have more or less played hunter exclusively since Ulduar, and I've always done pretty decent, doing respectable DPS, using my utility to it's fullest and generally been a good raider. In Legion however, I felt as if that changed, and nothing ever "clicked" - I feel like I've done poorly the entire expansion so far, so much that I even quit for a while.
      Well, now my pretty casual guild has started progressing in mythic, and even though we've managed the three first cakewalk bosses, I want to do better at the harder ones, so I'm reaching out to you guys for help. To be honest, I have no idea where to start to better myself. I really suck at handling an/or interpreting logs, but I can tell I don't do really well from the rankings... mostly gray numbers. Also, my live DPS is pretty much 200k lower than my simmed (using Raidbots quicksim feature).
      Below, I will link the logs from our progress run in mythic last night, some wipes, but two kills (Demonic Inquisition and Harjatan). Hopefully you can gleam something I'm doing wrong from them - if not I can probably get some logs from our raid tomorrow. I'll also post a link to my armory, if that helps. Raidbots doesn't seem to function properly at the moment, the connection to armory fails all the time which means I can't post any sims. I will try and edit this post with some sims later on, if possible. :P

      I don't expect you guys to do wonders, but any help is appreciated!

      1st edit:
       
      Also, forgot to mention that I guess I'm willing to swap to BM if needed, but I really hate pets with a passion since the Deathwing fights, and having my pet swimming between the platforms, preventing me from using Kill Command...
