Hello

 

I'd like to ask your help on improving my dps. Feels I should do better, but I can't find what I'm missing...  I've been very lucky with drops, but especially on multitarget fights my fellow guild hunter does better job. I blame that on my.. eh, just messing things and dots up. cool.png

 

But to get basics right, I'd like you to rate my performance on simple fight with Malkoroth.

 

I'm having good uptime on BA 98,4% and SS ok, 94,5% (that is one to improve), gemming and reforging goes according to askmrrobot. I couldn't find stampede on logs, but did use it and did prepot...

 

Any feedback is appreciated.

Nothing to say related to your rotation or your stats, looks good to me. One suggestion: If possible, drop skinning for another profession: Engineering is usually a very strong choice to improve DPS (agility boost every min + improved mobility) and it is for sure the funniest and coolest profession (who haven't dream of having a deadly explosive sheep).

The only thing I noticed is slightly low serpent sting uptime (94.5%) probably fell off and was refreshed. The other thing is that at one point you have 10 seconds between explosive shots, yet two arcane shots were used. Other than that it looks great, so that's like a 1% dps loss at most.

1 thing I know that hurts SS uptime is 4 set proccing 6+ explosive shots in a row... I can't say if that is bad or good thing cool.png Should I refresh SS (BA i will, moar procs!) during these procs, or try to use procs asap?? And during these procs I often tend to get focus capped, that and refreshing SS might have caused 10 secs between explosive shots...

 

Gotta try farm some ores with alt and try engineering, I do feel bit envy towards mates jumping off a cliff with glider and running past me with rocket boots! It has seemed interesting prof for a while. Skinning does provide +480 crit though...

 

It's been said several times everywhere, but I was still suspicious about spore bat doing same dmg with hyena / ravager, that just is unnatural imo...

 

Thanks for feedback. Got HC Assurance last night, I'm off to try it out biggrin.png

Since I'm not a mainspec hunter I could be wrong, but wouldn't coming out of Explosive burst mean you can just serpent blackarrow arcane arcane cobra explosive? I don't know all the tips and tricks that change the rotation, but I just don't understand why explosive would ever be a 10s wait

My post didnt post? :( Silly tablet >.<

 

But yes you are doing things right. On that particular fight the other hunter was BM, and your lock and load procs didn't last very long. L&L is such a big dps burst, especially if you are lucky and get a long proc.

 

SInce getting the 4 piece I too have noticed that I could get unlucky and have SS fall off with a long proc. I try to refresh SS when the timer gets 10-8 seconds left either by cobra shot or SS. If it happens to fall off every once in a while during a L&L proc I wouldn't stress over it. Explosive shot is going to do way more damage then SS would on a single target fight.

A week has passed, and another go at Malkoroth.

 

http://www.worldoflogs.com/reports/yyrem3zof4xdx225/analyze/dd/source/?s=2671&e=2851

 

A whopping 40k DPS gain! cool.png

 

Basicly I moved explosive shot on top (+few nothces) of my priority list, and stopped stressing about serpent sting & black arrow or capping focus while lock'n load. SS stayed on same uptime, BA dropped to 96,2%. Gearwise I got lucky and replaced normal Assurance with HC one and took engineering instead skinning smile.png  (yeah, it is lovely +2k agility for 10 s / min! I thought it was haste on gloves on use...)  

 

I'm quite happy with it now, thanks for pointers smile.png

      SERVER: Illidan
      RAID TIMES: Fridays & Sundays 10pm - 1am Server Time (CT)
      CURRENT PROGRESSION: 8/8N, 7/8H
      iLVL REQUIREMENT: 355 - 360+
       
      CURRENTLY RECRUITING
      Tank Healer DPS ABOUT US
      Currently looking for skilled and laid back raiders 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.
      Players wanting just Mythic+ and a casual experience (no raiding) are welcomed!
      Fun guild events are scheduled every Saturday!
      TLDR; 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
      - Mythic+ or Casual: Add me on Battle.net or whisper me in-game for an invite.
      - Raiders: Add me on Battle.net and fill out our app.
      Start the app here!

      Guild: Dawn of the Dead | http://www.dotd.org   Faction: Horde | Server: Zul'jin (PvE) | Timezone: EST   Current Progression: 4/8M Uldir   We've been raiding max size raids continuously since WoW has been released and are the only guild to have done so here on Zul'jin. We have strong leadership, no drama, and plans to keep raiding for years to come. Unlike many guilds, we're not recruiting for the short term, and we don't over-recruit.   Website: www.dotd.org
        Raid Times: Our schedule is 8-11 EST Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday.   Needs: We are a small guild, and we expect high attendance. As such, we recruit people to raid, and desire people who can step in and contribute immediately. We don’t recruit people to sit around, so all spots are for raiders who can expect to be in most every raid.   We are currently looking to add skilled and reliable:   Ranged DPS:
      High: Warlock
      Medium: Mage, S.Priest, Boomkin
      1 Healer:
      High: MW Monk
      *ALL exceptional applicants will be considered regardless of the class.   What we ask of you:   Effort: Not all applicants come from highly progressed guilds, and that’s okay, but it does mean that you need to be prepared. We recruit the player, not the gear, but we do ask that you have some current experience and be a minimum iLvl of 370. You need to have the best gear available to you, (BoE, Crafted) with gems and top end enchants. You also need to be able to display an understanding of your class mechanics, role in a raid, and ability to learn new fights.   Attitude: It’s a game. We play for fun. How you fit in with the guild is taken very seriously. We’re a bunch of mostly 18-30 guys and girls who have fun playing together. While we have a good time, we also know when it’s time to buckle down and work hard.   Skill: The best way to determine skill is to see you in a raid. Because we don’t wish to have anyone transfer that we’re not serious about, be able to express your knowledge of your class and why you’re an exceptional player who would be an asset and is worth a shot. Gear will come with time. Skill will not. Impress us with your knowledge of your class and gameplay mechanics. Feel free to share any logs, theorycrafting, or other work you've done.   Commitment: We make a commitment to you, and ask you to do the same to us. A raid takes a team of more than 20 individuals working together. We rely on you to show up to raids, research your class and new fights, respect your fellow players, and notify us when you are unavailable. You rely on us for gear, experience, and coordination. It's a large investment of our time to train and gear new players, and we ask the same investment on your part so that we can each benefit.   We have a variety of informational resources available to prospective applicants on our web site: http://www.dotd.org-- please refer to our "Applications" forum for detailed information. Also feel free to visit us on WoWProgresss for more information and kill videos! http://www.wowprogress.com/guild/us/...wn+of+the+Dead   Should you wish to speak to someone in-game, please don't hesitate to reach out to an officer directly, whisper Xanah (Xana#1662) or Jeare (Jeare#1759).   We look forward to hearing from you soon!

      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!
