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.

      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
