Havoc Demon Hunter DPS and Questing Build

7 posts in this topic

I have a low DPS and I'm not sure what the best build is for general questing. I get hit hard by enemies and die quite a bit especially when I get attacked by a mob. Any advice would be greatly appreciated

Hi Talfur, have you read the IV guide yet?

If you're getting hit too hard, then run and use your mobility to your advantage.

I've read the guide. I'm still trying to understand rotations and things but my ilvl is 884 and I only do around 275k dps do I would put links up for you to view my stuff but I don't know any of the links

Talfur, 

I think you'll find with demon hunters a lot does come down to the rotation. Using abilities that build off each other, at the right time, makes a huge difference to your dps. Using abilities correctly will also contribute a lot to your survival; for instance, making sure you have cooldowns ready if you get in trouble, using things like Blur effectively, etc. Generally speaking, demon hunters are great at crowds, but yes, we do tend to be squishy! The key is to down enemies quickly before they have a chance to hit you.

That being said, if after reading through the class guide's suggested rotation and practicing that you're still having trouble, you may want to use something like WarcraftLogs.com and post the results here so someone more authoritative than me can help you further :).

      SERVER: Illidan
      RAID TIMES: Fridays & Sundays 10pm - 1am Server Time.
      CURRENT PROGRESSION: 8/8N, 5/8H
       
      CURRENTLY RECRUITING (340+ ilvl)
      Healer DPS ABOUT US
      Currently looking for a skilled and laid back Healer & DPS for Heroic and eventually Mythic Uldir.
      We're semi-casual in terms of the time we spend raiding, but are serious about progression, attendance, and performance.
      Booty Pirates is a close-knit late night guild that hangs out in Discord frequently. We enjoy joking around, playing alts, doing Mythic+, playing other games, or just hanging out. 
      Fun guild events are scheduled often!
      Overall, we're very social with guild members that actually talk to each other.
      (18+ required, we talk like pirates!)
      GOALS FOR BfA
      In Battle for Azeroth we plan to push Mythic more than we did previously in Legion, and not spend nearly as much time on Heroic. 
      This means we will jump into Mythic/Heroic weekends as soon as the majority of the Heroic gear is done. (Mythic Friday and Heroic Sunday, for example, until we phase Heroic out completely.) 
      JOINING THE BOOTY PIRATES CREW
      Make sure to add me on Battle.net and fill out our app to join us. We look forward to speaking with you!
      Start the app here!

      Looking for a casually serious progression guild? Hordeland Security could be your new home! We started at launch, and have raided on Blackhand, Baelgun, and now Turalyon. 

      We currently raid on Tuesdays and Thursdays 7:00- 9:15 Central Time. We understand that no one has an unlimited amount of time to play. We raid with a goal oriented focus, to achieve AotC in current content and then progress into Mythic. We also have a few that pvp, a few more that push M+'s, and we've been known do a few mog/achievement runs.
      Interested? Drop us a line!

      Hi everyone,

      We are a guild that transferred from Alexstrasza to join the progression raiding scene as that server is very low population now. We are currently 8/8N and 4/8H uldir, and looking to move into heroics soon and mythic just after. 

      We do more than just raid, we love to do keys, transmog runs, and even some PvP. We have a large range of players from several walks of life and have a unique and fun atmosphere, we are friendly and love helping people. 

      We are looking for a few more members for our Sunday/Monday 5-8pm PST, and our tue/third 5-8pm PST. If anyone is interested in raid leading that will work too.

      We are primarily east coast based but have a plethora of players that are on at all times of day.

      Main needs for our raid team:
      ranged dps
      Healers
      Exceptional players

      Of course all players as welcome as we do other guild activities such as world PVP, keys, xmog and other social activities.

      So come join this very active guild and we hope to hear from you.

      If you would like more information please add my btag at Kaatra#5865.

      I look forward to hearing from all of you.
