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.

Hey work plus raid night didn't give me a lot of time to analyze your logs yesterday but today is a snow day so I'll look things over and get back to you

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

      About Us
      Skunkworks is a guild for players who can not or do not want to commit to the time-intensive raid schedules of traditional "hardcore" guilds.
      However, we still maintain a high caliber player environment and make an efficient use of our raiding time.
      We raid Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7:00 - 11:00 PST, just 8 hours a week and never more.
       
      We are very protective of our guild environment and selective in recruitment. We are looking for solid players mechanically as well as intellectually.
      We all get paid to deal with idiots, why should we pay to spend our leisure time with them as well?
       
      Skunkworks has been around for multiple expansions and has historically always been at the top of the 2-night raiding guild scene.

      Strangely Ironic is guild of friends and family that has been around the block a couple times. We are trying to recruit active players to form a raid team. Due to RL and the age of the game our ranks have dwindled. We are a casual guild looking to raid two nights a week from 9pm EST to 11pm EST; days of the week will change as I work shift work. If you want to join and don't want to raid we are still accepting all applicants as we want to foster an active community.
      No hot-heads please, as we are a guild who recognizes that this is just a game and we are all here to have fun and relax.
      If you are interested add reddfoxx#1496 or head to strangelyironic.enjin.com to fill out an application.

      We're a guild looking for people who want to have a great time, hang out with each other, laugh and have fun while killing stuff in raids! 

      Guild Name: RaidCat
      Faction: Alliance
      Realm (EU): Silvermoon
      Realm Type: PVE
      Realm Timezone: CEST
      Progression: 8/11 HC Antorus
      Raid Times: 19:30st - 22:00st
      Raid Schedule: Friday and Monday (additional raids on Wednesday for alts, mythic etc)
      Openings: Range DPS (help us knock those melee off the top of the meters!)

      We raid twice a week in the evenings with optional extra runs appearing as requested. 
      Currently we also raid on Wednesdays (normal) to help gear up mains and alts.
      As our raid roster increases and  heroic progress continues Wednesday evening will likely become a mythic progression night. However mythic is not our end goal or focus, but rather something we try to make extra time for. Social members also welcome!

      Looking for: Range DPS (warlock, mage, hunter, shadow priest, hunter) Other applications considered.

      We do everything from Transmog runs, PVP, Mythic+ and whatever else you can think of, with our main focus on raiding.

      We are aiming for a relaxed yet skilled raiding environment where people can fill in for each other, not having to worry about always attending since people can fill in for you, focusing on having fun and improving ourselves with each kill.

      We do care about people following tactics and knowing what they're doing (so do your homework or ask for help!) so we may actually get some stuff done as well, that's why we're looking mainly for experienced raiders that want a more flexible environment (if you are new to raiding you are still welcome)

      We use Discord and you are welcome to join and hang out before deciding to move over.

      Officers: Maxilloss & Ahdra#2154
