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.

      About Us
      Skunkworks is a guild for players who can not or do not want to commit to the time-intensive raid schedules of traditional "hardcore" guilds.
      However, we still maintain a high caliber player environment and make an efficient use of our raiding time.
      We raid Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7:00 - 11:00 PST, just 8 hours a week and never more.
       
      We are very protective of our guild environment and selective in recruitment. We are looking for solid players mechanically as well as intellectually.
      We all get paid to deal with idiots, why should we pay to spend our leisure time with them as well?
       
      Skunkworks has been around for multiple expansions and has historically always been at the top of the 2-night raiding guild scene.

      Strangely Ironic is guild of friends and family that has been around the block a couple times. We are trying to recruit active players to form a raid team. Due to RL and the age of the game our ranks have dwindled. We are a casual guild looking to raid two nights a week from 9pm EST to 11pm EST; days of the week will change as I work shift work. If you want to join and don't want to raid we are still accepting all applicants as we want to foster an active community.
      No hot-heads please, as we are a guild who recognizes that this is just a game and we are all here to have fun and relax.
      If you are interested add reddfoxx#1496 or head to strangelyironic.enjin.com to fill out an application.

      We're a guild looking for people who want to have a great time, hang out with each other, laugh and have fun while killing stuff in raids! 

      Guild Name: RaidCat
      Faction: Alliance
      Realm (EU): Silvermoon
      Realm Type: PVE
      Realm Timezone: CEST
      Progression: 8/11 HC Antorus
      Raid Times: 19:30st - 22:00st
      Raid Schedule: Friday and Monday (additional raids on Wednesday for alts, mythic etc)
      Openings: Range DPS (help us knock those melee off the top of the meters!)

      We raid twice a week in the evenings with optional extra runs appearing as requested. 
      Currently we also raid on Wednesdays (normal) to help gear up mains and alts.
      As our raid roster increases and  heroic progress continues Wednesday evening will likely become a mythic progression night. However mythic is not our end goal or focus, but rather something we try to make extra time for. Social members also welcome!

      Looking for: Range DPS (warlock, mage, hunter, shadow priest, hunter) Other applications considered.

      We do everything from Transmog runs, PVP, Mythic+ and whatever else you can think of, with our main focus on raiding.

      We are aiming for a relaxed yet skilled raiding environment where people can fill in for each other, not having to worry about always attending since people can fill in for you, focusing on having fun and improving ourselves with each kill.

      We do care about people following tactics and knowing what they're doing (so do your homework or ask for help!) so we may actually get some stuff done as well, that's why we're looking mainly for experienced raiders that want a more flexible environment (if you are new to raiding you are still welcome)

      We use Discord and you are welcome to join and hang out before deciding to move over.

      Officers: Maxilloss & Ahdra#2154
