Hello everybody :)

I've being playing with my survival hunter for a while now and I'm always pushing over 110k at least without burst.

Thing is, i know theres more i can push my hunter to so that i can do a lot more damage than I can atm. The one new thing that i started is tracking my procs and trying to send out my dots like serpent sting when those procs are active. I do receive an increase in dps by about 15k but i know i can do more.

Which leads to my question. Is there any way in which You guys/girls can help me do this or anybody you can direct me to? I am willing to go as advance as i possibly can to try achieve this as well.

Heres a link to my character: http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/character/sylvanas/Theokleia/simple

PS. My hit cap is a little high which is probably causing a problem with my dps but I'm stuck with it until i get new legs from flex or normals :(

Hello,

 

Your hit's indeed a little high, but that's mainly a function of getting an unlucky combo of gear. In some cases, you might be able to gem agility instead of expertise, and reforge to expertise to compensate. Might give you a minor dps boost.

 

Furthermore, when you're saying "without burst", what exactly do you mean? Over the course of a 5-8 minute fight? Without using CD's? Or are the numbers you mention from dummy testing? It's hard for us to judge where you can improve without knowing how you play, so the best next step might be to show us some logs. If you don't have any, go into an LFR or Flex, and upload to WoL afterwards. 

 

Good luck

Galakras would probably not be ideal as a baseline measurement because of the heavy aoe, and the difference your role makes (tower duty or not). Something like Sha of Pride would give an easier read on your single-target rotation. However, feel free to include any fights you want specific advice on.

 

As for logging, I usually use Loggerhead to make it easier. Then register a worldoflogs account and follow their instructions. You could also upload a 5 min Raider's Training dummy log to test. If you need specific help with this part, just send me a pm.

My suggestions: replace your 2 jagged wild jades and your perfect glinting roguestones to pure agility gems. You are over hit cap and agi gives 2 points of crit.

 

An addon like JSHB hunter bar will help you keep track of cd's, duration, and focus. Make sure you keep black arrow up every time it is off cd. When lock and load procs keep applying explosive shot as the dot itself will continue to stack in damage. You no longer have to weave arcane shots in between your lock and load explosive shots.

 

Also, try to get your hands on an Assurance of Consequence. It lowers the cd of Black Arrow, Rapid Fire, and Stampede which makes it a huge dps increase.

      Hey everyone, I thought I would post up my deck. Its nothing crazy new, just a revamped secrets deck for the new expansion and is working fairly well for me. 

      http://www.hearthpwn.com/deckbuilder/hunter#8:2;99:2;163:2;210:1;344:2;363:2;447:1;483:2;553:2;578:2;42021:1;42050:2;42051:2;58724:1;61819:1;61827:2;62837:1;62854:2;

      <Trust> may be what you're looking for if you enjoy killing internet dragons with a group of like minded players! Currently we are 8/9 Heroic, soon to be stepping into Mythic ToS. We are recruiting to finish rounding out our raid team. <Trust> is located on the [US] Doomhammer/Baelgun pve servers, alliance side! Check us out!
       
      About Us:
      <Trust> is a recently formed guild, founded by a group of long time players that have been raiding together for a couple of years now.

      Our Raids:
      <Trust> maintains a progression-oriented 2-day semi-casual raiding team. That's 'semi' as in we expect our team members to always prioritize life first; but not 'casual' as in we take downing bosses less seriously. We strive to maintain a balance of taking our progression raids seriously while having plenty of laughs along the way.
       
      Raid Schedule:
      Tuesday & Thursday: 5p – 8p server (8p – 11p eastern)

      Recruitment:
      <Trust> is looking for full time Resto Druid, Mages, Hunters, and Warlocks for our raid team. We are also open for good people to join as casual players, pvpers, with the option to join farm content or alt raids.

      2x Alleycat 1x Emerald Reaver 2x Fiery Bat 2x Fire Fly 2x Jeweled Macaw 2x Raptor Hatchling 1x Stampede 1x The Marsh Queen 2x Tracking 2x Crackling Razormaw 2x Scavenging Hyena 1x Deadly Shot 2x Kill Command 2x Stitched Tracker 1x Cult Master 2x Houndmaster 1x Tol'vir Warden 1x Tundra Rhino 1x Deathstalker Rexxar
      Here's my current take on the quest Hunter. Stitched Tracker and Build-A-Beast in my eyes have really given Hunter some good and greatly needed flexibility. The ability to create an extra Tol'vir Warden, Tundra Rhino, Hyena, or Cult Master, or any of the various 1 drops needed for the quest allow for a nice range of minions without having to worry about getting that one draw you need to combo. Build-A-Beast is such a fantastic ability and the AOE that Deathstalker Rexxar gives is a very welcome addition. While a little expensive Exploding Bloatbat + anything with charge, preferably a Boar, gives Hunter a nice suicide bomb. Alternatively Hyena + anything with Stealth is a great way to safely build up lethal, or a Stealth Rhino to consistently hurl charge raptors at your opponent's face.  

      This deck is by no means perfect, but it's a hell of a lot of fun to play in its current iteration. I'm open to any suggestions or criticisms about how to make this more viable.
