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.

      Hi Team
      I am recently returning from a few years away from the game and I have decided to go back to my much loved main throughout wrath, the feral druid. I have always been a cut above the rest and managed to be top dps all through wrath. 
      I was reading your guide and noticed in the talents you don't take savage roar. Can you explain the match behind this as to me it seems like the more viable option.

      <Tempest> of Khaz'goroth/Dath'remar is recruiting!
      We are a laid back 21+ guild based in Australia for the most part. We understand that some don't have a large amount of time to commit to raiding due to real life commitments- jobs, kids, hassles etc 😛
      Because of this we are dedicated to providing a stress free raiding environment 2 days per week in addition to an active social community. 
      Social apps are available for all classes and levels! If this sounds like the guild for you please contact us!
      Previous tier progression was 1/7M and 3/3H
      Raiding info:
      We raid from 8pm sharp server time Sundays and Wednesdays for 3 hours and predominantly use loot council for loot distribution.
      Recruitment openings: 
      1x Tank- any class - must also be comfortable dpsing
      DPS with healing offspecs
      -WW Monk
      -Shadow Priest
      -Ret Paladin
      -Enh or Ele Shaman
      -Feral or boomkin druid
      We would also consider the following DPS classes without a healing OS
      DH
      warlock
      rogue
      DK
      druid
      We will of course give consideration to those who fall outside our recruitment needs if you think you may be a good fit for Tempest.
      If this sounds like you, or you would like some more info please pst or mail Aereth (Aereth#1439).
