529 Beastmaster DPS issues after 5.4

Recommended Posts

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.

http://www.askmrrobot.com/wow/gear/4bdde650-049f-4256-ae20-29d4efb500cc

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.

      <Fun is for Casuals> is a serious but casual horde guild on US-Hyjal. We are serious about raiding without the intense hours. Even when recruitment status is none, we will accept exceptional applications for all classes.
      Our raid times are Tuesday and Thursday from 5:30PM to 8:30PM server (PST) with raid invitations sent out a few minutes prior to that.
      We're interested in you if you fit the following criteria:
      Raid attendance is essential. We don't want people sitting on the bench but we also want to make sure we're raiding 6 hours per week. We expect you to be available for at least 90% of our raids. Be on time and prepared for raids. This includes flasks and other consumables. Discord is mandatory and a working mic is desired. You're appropriately geared for our current content. Effort and thought have been put into your gear/gem/enchant choices. You wouldn't show up for a job interview looking like a *filtered*, why would you apply to a guild with improper gems or some insane spec? You're up to date with your class. We expect our raiders to perform to the best of their abilities. You have a computer that's not run with hamster power or requires a hand crank. Some encounters are taxing on a computer's resources so if your toon can't even handle Orgrimmar it's not likely to do well with 20+ whelps that need AOE'ing. You may be interested in us because:
       <Fun is for Casuals> uses the personal loot system. There is no loot council, or DKP. We won't eat your babies the first time you stand in something you have no business being in. Repeatedly do it and we'll break out the bibs and BBQ sauce. We provide a limited amount of consumables and flasks on hard mode raid nights.  Discord isn't a circus during raids. We're focused on the job at hand and you should be too. We don't want someone to miss a an interrupt because they were distracted by fart jokes. We are not interested in you if you fit the following criteria:
      You roll on BoE items then sell them. Unwilling/unable to spend an entire evening on one boss during progression. While this is rare, it can happen. Drama queens. If you have a problem bring it up to E. This is his job. Don't announce it in guild chat or during a raid. Your issue will have nothing to do with 99% of the guild. You are 17 or younger. We try to keep guild and discord chat PG-13 but occasionally a few four letter words appear out of nowhere. Additionally, we don't want someone's mom interrupting their raiding to get homework or the dishes done. Follow the instructions at https://gow.gg/fun-is-for-casuals under the Recruitment tab if you would like to apply.

      I am going the corpselance support build for Necromancer and the build has me taking Corpselance with Brittle and the pestilence set on top of that, if I were to take off the ability Corpselance and change it to another ability say for example Bone Spikes with Frost spikes, would the damage decrease an amount that it would not be worth it?

      Hi Team
      I am recently returning from a few years away from the game and I have decided to go back to my much loved main throughout wrath, the feral druid. I have always been a cut above the rest and managed to be top dps all through wrath. 
      I was reading your guide and noticed in the talents you don't take savage roar. Can you explain the match behind this as to me it seems like the more viable option.
