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.

      <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).

      Hi, everyone!

      We've successfully completed M+10 key in time with 5 vengeance dhs group. It was funny challenge for us, because of not BiS gear (less than 210 average group ilvl) and not BiS legendaries, but we've done it!
       


      I have experience of organizing similar events since MoP (10 and 25 blood dks raids, 20 dhs raid in Legion prepatch, later it was 5 dhs vs mythic+ keys).

      If you have a 190+ ilvl demon hunter for Alliance and if you are interested to participate in similar events in future, contact me here or come to our group in Blizzard client: https://blizzard.com/invite/5dp5MUMPg.

      In the nearest future we're planning to gather dhs only raid in Castle Nathria, perhaps immediately a heroic mode.

      Intergalactic is an AOTC/Mythic progression guild now recruiting for Shadowlands raiding and M+.  We are a group of friends who were interested in the fun of raiding while understanding that life responsibilities take precedent. We are a combination of new and returning players from various expansions. While social players are always welcomed, we are more specifically looking for players who are interested in a fun, relaxed environment to progress through content. We do run M+ keys, transmog/gear and achievement runs when possible.
      Intergalactic did not run as a guild during Bfa. We had members getting bored with Bfa content and decided to spend their time on other things. We did do some content with some of the guilds in our community group. Our last guild raids were in Legion. The majority of our core has come back in anticipation for Shadowlands. We are excited to be back as an active guild on Korgath and it's connected realms. We look forward to having you join us!  (Korgath is connected with  Cairne, Cenarius, Frostmane, Ner’zhul, Perenolde, and Tortheldrin.
      What we expect from all of our Members:
      In short, “Be excellent to each other.” We’re not looking for members filled with drama and toxicity. We’re all friends here and while we may not all agree on a particular subject, it can be discussed in a friendly, constructive, and respectful manner. A good sense of humor is a must. We aren’t looking for Members who only log in on raid days. Other events will be on the calendar, as well, and we hope that you’ll sign up and attend.
      What we expect from our Raiders:
      Raiders are to sign up on the calendar for events. If you are going to be late or if you will be unable to attend at the last-minute, please notify the GM, Raid Lead or an Officer as soon as possible.
      Raiders are expected to log in approximately 15 minutes prior to raid start and be outside the raid with consumables and enhancements. We will provide feasts, cauldrons, and repairs. We can provide extra food, enchants, gems when available, all we ask for is either a monetary donation or help with crafting materials.
      Raiders are expected to be prepared with knowledge of raid mechanics, as well as class-specific knowledge. Know your strengths and weaknesses and be willing to openly receive and give helpful constructive criticism when needed.
      Raiders are expected to be progression-oriented, with the understanding that some mechanics/fights may take multiple attempts. We can’t progress through raids without everyone working as a team to try and work through the mechanics.
      Raiders who are capable of playing multiple classes/specs may be asked to switch to a more appropriate character to work through particular mechanics. We maintain a smaller roster and sometimes rotate people in based on fight specifications.
      Raid Days/Times: Wednesday/Friday at 8pm Server/9pm EST, possible carryover on Saturdays
      Roles Needed: Ranged DPS and/or multi-spec players
      We require:
      Discord
      Deadly Boss Mods
      Details! Damage Meter (preferred)
      If you think that we would be a good fit, please send a DM to Northeos, Nanami or Thawn. Or simply add us on Battle Tag.
      Thawn Btag MistFist#1340
      Northeos Btag Northe#1566
      Nanami Btag Tyannah#1566

      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!
