Demon Hunter LOW DPS (High Gear) 8.3

Recommended Posts

Hey Everyone, 

So i play a Demon Hunter Lvl 120 with iLVL 464.

My DPS in dungeons is just so low compared to everyone else and i dont know why. I was in a M8+ earlier and the ilvl 450 Tank was doing more DPS than I was. 

Any tips? Check out my gear/character, i think its all setup right. I went through the Icy Veins Demon Hunter guide and stat priority etc... Got a rotation, but something isnt right. Im always last on DPS even with 440 ilvl players in the group.

 

Thanks for reading!

I'm no expert, but here's my 2 copper.

Did the tank have a Tier 3 Twilight Devastation? That gives tanks insane aoe dps because the damage is based on HP. You have very little corruption gear. Work on that cloak.

Other things: Try Blind Fury instead of Demonic Appetite. The fury gain is consistent and predictable plus you get added damage from the longer eye beam.

Weapons are a big thing for us DHs. Yours are on the low side for your gear level. I know the pain of not getting the weapon drops you need. 

Try shifting your stats to more crit. I'm at about 30% crit and 22% haste at a similar ilevel (I'm at 467).

The Icy Veins guides are good, but things shift a lot at higher gear levels. If you aren't simming (Simcraft + raid bots) give that a try. My stat weights changed quite a bit over time.

 So just now came across your post and I looked you up on Raider IO,  I hope this will be of some assistance and I can not tell what is accurate from the three sites that I saw you from and what you have already changed.  You have one too many stacks of the Azerite Trait Eyes of Rage (Raider IO).  We generally just need one of those traits since they do not stack like the Azerite Trait Furious Gaze for additional Haste.  I also recommend switching your minor Essence trait of Purification Protocol with Crucible of Flame till you get Rank 3 of Purification Protocol unless you plan on using the Essence for Horrific Vision farming.  Keep doing your Uldum dailies to get the Rank 3 of Breath of the Dying too this will increase your dps.

Far as general Havoc Traits I would switch Trail of Ruin for Fel Barrage.  Use Fel Barrage while under Meta during your rotation.  This really helps during Fortified Key weeks when it's the dps priority to kill the trash in dungeons quickly before Tank and Healer become overwhelmed.  I generally use Trail of Ruin for Tyrannical week for the dot effect on Bosses and it does a decent amount of dmg on trash.  I would also switch Nemesis with Demonic for the simple reason for the short duration of being in Meta to do additional dmg on all given targets while the buff up time for Nemesis isn't as reliable on the pace of keystones and it's long cool down before reactivating it .  

Corruption gear if you have or can get lucky to obtain it I would look for pieces that give Twilight Devastation or Echoing Void that is great for Multi target setups.  And if you can Infinite Stars for Single target builds like Tyrannical and 11/12 Bosses for NtWC Raid.  For when these start proc while doing your rotation it's basically free dmg.  Only downside is balancing the Corruption where it doesn't overwhelm you during the encounter where you can't successfully navigate or perform mechanics accordingly per affixes on keystones weekly.

As far as gear goes I would aim at saving bonus rolls for Ra-den on Heroic in NtWC just because the proc rate on the claws and it's considered as BiS overall from getting either +10-15 Warglaive of the Sandqueen (TD), Bile Tusks (URR), or the Axe from Mechagon.

Here is My setup. I usually do top 3 DPS. I prefer doing more AOE damage. Yours looks like its set up for more Single target. But if you like AOE, I would use Fel Barrage. Does massive damage in a short 3 sec span. I also use Haste and Versatility ( I think) on My weapons. I'm not as high of iLvl as you, but its fairly close. Maybe something I do different will help you out as well.

      Hey guys!
       
      I recently switched over to Vengeance to tank for my guild and I'm trying to figure out a few things regarding my azerite. I was lucky my havoc gear had pretty good vengeance traits as well (3 revel being what I was shooting for). I recently bought a 480 shoulder piece that has Infernal Armor and Hour of reaping, but not Revel. It's a 15 ilvl increase and I'm not sure if the ilvl increase is worth losing that trait. Would love some feedback if possible. Thanks!

      Guild: Dawn of the Dead | http://www.dotd.org   Faction: Horde | Server: Zul'jin (PvE) | Timezone: EST   Current Progression: 8/9M BoD | 2/2H CoS | 8/8M Uldir CE   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: Shadow Priest, Mage Medium: Warlock 1 Healer:
      High: Resto Shaman, Mistweaver 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. You need to have the best gear available to you with top end enchants and gems where available. 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 Alloren (Alloren#1606), Xanah (Xana#1662) or Jeare (Jeare#1759).   We look forward to hearing from you soon!

      <Exo> is an old guild from Dragonblight which transferred to Stormrage in search of mythic raiders. We are a guild full of experienced raiders always looking to expand our roster. 
      We are not a world first guild nor do we aim to be. Our primary goal is to get loot and have a good time, however this still means on progression nights we do expect you to show up, put on your serious face, and kill some *filtered*.
      Our raids are on 3 nights a week; Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday from 9pm-12 Server Time (EST). The Monday raids are optional farm/alt nights (Normal/Heroic) with Tuesday/Wednesday being mandatory progression nights.
      Currently we are accepting applications for any role, off specs are always a welcome addition but not required. Performance and skill will be looked at above gear, experience, or class.
      We do not have a minimum item level required to join our raid team, however we will require you to catch up in our Monday farm-runs up until you are at a mythic level.
      If you have any questions or are interested in joining or trialing with us please add Pasha#1800, Java#1849 or Bushido#1988 on bnet to talk with an officer.
