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

      Maximum Effort is a new guild on Cenarion circle (A). I was the raid leader for my guild for a long time and we built up a strong raid team. Due to do some dis-agreements between me and the guild leader I was forced to leave. But luckly enough a lot of my team followed me! We're working to build a guild focused around team work and group progression. We love doing mythics, raids, talking and theory crafting about the game!
      We have a very strong-core raid group, capable of clearing heroic and doing some mythic but we're just missing a few people to round it out!
      Raid nights.. Tue/wed 6-830pm server (9:30-11:30 est) Off night Monday 6-830pm server (9-11:30 est)
      Looking for.. -Any and all dps specs
      - Non pally or holy priest healer!
      All raid mats and needs are covered by guild, we run personal look just for the ease of it.
      My btag is Hethrus#1504 if you have questions or wish to try out!

      All applications will be reviewed and considered however if you are playing a class/spec combination we need then your chances of joining will be higher.
      A little bit of info about us:
      We are a group of friends and serious raiders on EU Twisting Nether looking to recruit skilled like-minded players into our roster for Mythic Legion raids and onwards. We will offer a sociable and fun raiding environment while maintaining a strong desire for progression. Our Discord is very active and we encourage all members to chat and play together not only for raids. The guild formed late March 2016 and fully cleared 13/13 Mythic Hellfire Citadel pre nerf shortly after. We've since been improving our world ranking every tier.
      We currently raid 3 days per week on Mythic: Wednesday, Sunday and Tuesday 19:15-22:15 server time. While it is not a lot we try to make the most out of our time. We run optional heroic/normal/alt/previous tier raids during off days in which raiders are welcome to come to. Our members also play other games outside raid times together where anyone is welcome to join(LoL, Dota, HotS, Overwatch etc.).
      Our loot system for Mythic is RC Loot Council.
      What we expect from you:
      - We are a raiding guild with only a 9 hour per week schedule so you are expected to attend and be ON TIME! However we understand things can come up sometimes but please let us know.
      - Be able to speak and understand the English language and not be afraid to communicate with other members during raids.
      - Actively doing dungeons/world quests to improve your gear and artifact weapon.
      - Have a strong understanding of the current raid tier and be able to play your class to it's potential.
      - Always come to raids prepared(i.e. bringing food and potions, etc).
      - Come fully gemmed and enchanted with the correct stats for your class and spec.
      - Access to Discord and a working microphone.
      - Have a computer that can handle 20 man raiding and a good, stable internet connection.
      - Exorsus Raid Tools, Weakauras2 and RC Loot Council addons installed. We may ask you to install others.
