MM Hunter DPS Rotation Help

3 posts in this topic

Hey everyone,

So, I think my problem is my gear as I have been trying to rack my brain on why my dps is not that great in raids. Some of it I admit is probably not sticking 100% to my rotation, but any help/suggestions would definitely be appreciated.

You can find the analyzer for the most recent log here: https://wowanalyzer.com/report/4K3dCR86gfMv2Njt/2-LFR+Antoran+High+Command/Darkbriar


Thanks in advance! 😎

A bunch of thoughts:

Wowanalyzer won't be super useful on High Command due to the adds changing the way you approach the fight.
Looks like you lost a good % of the fight to being in a pod, and I'm not sure how long the adds live on LFR, so maybe it'd be better to look at Felhounds. Comparing with my best log (we don't stack dogs :( )

1. You need to cast a bit more. In a perfect world we'd have 100% uptime. A common problem I see is not weaving enough Arcane Shots in, and this certainly seems to be the case here. Yes it's kinda crappy DPS by itself, but the focus generated helps you get more Aimed Shots in over the course of the fight. Also, sometimes you have to move and it's your only option.

With your haste %, the bare bones of your mid-fight cast sequence should look something like: 
Windburst (with 30-60 focus)
    Vulnerable window: Arcane Shot x3, Aimed Shot x2
Arcane Shots to get focus up and Marked Shot applied
Marked Shot (with 50-80 focus)
    Vulnerable window: Arcane Shot x2, Aimed Shot x2

2. 11 Aimed Shot casts outside of Vulnerable is quite high, more than I'd expect even with bad RNG. Should only be casting these if you can't get a vulnerable window and you're at risk of focus capping.

3. The last Trueshot is the most important (due to Bullseye), so it's a shame you only got a few seconds of it. I have a Weakaura that shows estimated time to boss death, and I try to pop mine at around the '20 seconds remaining' mark to make sure I use the whole duration. Of course, if you're at 30 stacks of Bullseye already there's little point in waiting!
In order to do this optimally you have to know roughly how often your Trueshots are available. Mine are around 70 seconds apart, so if the boss has around 75-80secs or less remaining, then I hold onto it. 

4. And yes, you could use some better gear. Particularly 4pT21, and a better ST trinket than Terminus You're simming at around 1.6mil so not doing too badly :)

Hey Aleila,

i appreciate you taking a look. I figured there were some slip ups in rotation. I find sometimes I am pressing the Marked Shot but it doesn’t activate and thus I begin Aimed Shot rotation.

yeah, I suspected T21 gear would be good to have but all I have are LFR versions. I got the Argus Trinket last night on Normal.

      SERVER: Illidan
      RAID TIMES: Fridays & Sundays 10pm - 1am Server Time.
      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!)
      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.) 
      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
      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.
