Rapid Fire question

I was playing around on my hunter at the targeting dummies and noticed Rapid Fire says it " increases ranged haste by 40% for 15 seconds". I confirmed this on character sheet when I hit it, but I'm confused why the cast time for cobra shot goes from 1.76 sec to 1.26 sec which is only around a  28% increase in speed. 40% would be 1.056 secs. What am I missing?

I'm not entirely sure how the increase in haste works honestly and am wondering the same. My haste is at 16.40% and with rapid fire only it's around 65%, with focus fire or hero/time warp it's about 58%, with rapid fire and one other it's 128%, with hero and focus fire it's 116%, and with all three it hits 208% haste. O.o with all three it should be +100% (40 from rapid fire and 30 from focus fire and hero). But instead it's close to +200%.

Not too sure on this myself tbh. Never looked into it.

 

In terms of the 28% compared to 40% ... what are you using as the base time, if you are saying1.73 - 1.26 is a 28% difference. I believe it goes from the shots base time to reduce multiplicative effects.

I understand how it works now: the cast time for cobra shot (or anything affected by haste) is [cast time] / [1 + haste %].

So with cobra shot, whose base cast time is 2 sec, it should be: 2 / (1 + (your haste) + haste bonuses)

The haste bonuses is where it gets weird. From what I've observed, haste doesn't stack nicely.

haste effects aren't always additive, they're multiplicative. In other words, the haste bonuses don't "stack" in a traditional sense and some don't stack at all. That's why you shouldn't use frenzy stacks and rapid fire at the same time, they don't stack.

I'm just going to have to get on later today and spend a good 5 to 10 min attacking a dummy to test it.

      Hi and, first of all, thanks for your time. 
      I´m back to WoW after around 3 years, and I´m feeling quite confused yet. My main is a Hunter. I left it during WoD as a BM. Now I´m back, still with WoD expansion, and I feel the class has changed a LOT. No traps, quite a different composition, etc. 
      I´d like some help in order to set my talents and rotations. My intention atm, as lvl 100, is to finish questing Draenor (still quite a bit to do here) and then buy Legion and try to level up before the expansion comes. I like soloing (I guess BM should be my choice, but I´m here to hear your opinions!!) and I´ll try to avoid skipping content. I´m not in a hurry, just want to enjoy the whole lore-and-questing all the way up.
      Thanks again for your help!!!!

      Hello,
      The Sworn is recruiting DPS.  We are a Horde guild on Arthas and our current progression is 4/9 Mythic TOS.  We only raid two nights a week, Tuesday and Wednesday from 9:05 PM until 12:05 AM Eastern.  Currently, our main goal is to push Mythis TOS progression versus clearing farmed content, please keep this in mind if you wish to join us.
      From you, we would expect 100% attendance during your trial period; after that if you cannot make a raid or will be late it is mandatory to keep the raid leader updated.  In order to continue making good progression while raiding only two nights a week, we expect that you know your class inside-out and will research any bosses you are unfamiliar with prior to raids.
       If you are interested, you can either reply to this thread and link your most recent combat logs for review or hit me up on battlenet, Violentnacho, recruiting officer (violentravi#1826.
      Thank you for your consideration
      Xoxo

      According to Azortharion simulations, our best for Antorus will be Qapla/Soul+Dire Frenzy/OWTP , ¿what stats need this build? At this moment, we need Mastery/Haste for Dire Frenzy build and Critical/Haste for OWTP build: therefore, they are mutually exclusive, right?  Or at least I understand that.
      So, ¿what stats?

      Looking for some advice about how to improve my DPS - I should be doing better than this I feel (using stomp build). My guild only raided NH HC and I got to the point where new gear was out-doing the 2pc 895 tier 19 set I had, which is why I'm not using 2pc tier 19 atm. If this was the wrong choice and I'm better dropping my ilevel to go back to it please let me know. I have most BM Leggos so again if I'm using the wrong combo please advise me. I would like to tweak my stats but not sure what gear would do me better than what I have. Any help you can give me would be so much appreciated.
