What am I doing wrong?

Recommended Posts

I've played warrior since Feb 2005 as a main and always had my hunter as an alt, but I've recently made it my main to play with my guild in SoO and into WoD. Basically the last time I played hunter in a heroic raiding environment was in Ulduar and I've come back to raiding within about the past month after not touching any of the content in MoP outside of LFR, but now that I have some gear my DPS seems to hover between 200-250k and I can't really find a reason why.

 


 


 

Here's some logs from Nazgrim and my armory to see if any of you guys that have been playing hunter for a long time can see anything stupid I'm doing, I realise I'm probably not using Murder of Crows as much as I should have been and have been trying to change that while DPSing some dummies testing different things. I've made sure my gear and reforging etc is 100% optimised using Ask Mr Robot and checked out the rotation etc on Icy Veins.

 

Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

Serpent sting uptime: 61.8%. Black arrow uptime: 29.1%. These numbers should be closer to 66-70% uptime or more depending on how fast your groups kills nazgrim. You especially want to get black arrow uptime higher thanks to lock and load, which gives free explosive shots, which is a big dps increase with te 4-piece. You also have pvp gear on rigt now so that could be a factor, but not a big one.

I hate you ...

 

that said, with that trinket, you should have no problem getting 100% uptime on blackarrow, and serpent sting should be as close to 100% as possible.

 

Ideally you should cast blackarrow 3 seconds after it comes of cd to ensure 100% uptime. [maybe longer since you have such an uber trinket!!!]

 

Just having Blackarrows uptime increased will increase your dps dramatically due to the extra lock n load explosive shot procs.

 

Again, just to note, I hate you! ... http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/item/105429 EVEN MORE SO, hrc warforged ... goes to weep in a corner!

Heroic, not HWF is what he has.  And I feel ya.......  But still, with that trinket, he should have 100% uptime on black arrow.

My 2 cents would be try Blink Strikes. it's comparable (not higher) dps to Murder of Crows except Murder of Crows requires flawless execution to min/max while Blink Strikes is just always there.  It would help on Nazgrim if you have your pet attacking adds with you.

Do you mostly raid as Survival or Beast Master?

 

Black Arrow uptime will greatly help, those l&l procs are too good to miss out on. My last Mal kill was 4:38. Your Mal kill was 5:39 and I had used Rapid Fire more than you. I would suggest watching your focus management. As SV you really only need focus to cast Black Arrow, non L&L explosive traps, and glaive toss. 

 

Blink is good for target switching heavy fights but overall I prefer Crows for the rest of the fights in SoO. 

 

I see you are an engineer but I dont see you gaining the Synapsis Springs buff. Do you have it macro'd to an ability?

ok, Black arrow and SS should be up 95% of the time if not 100% if you have the trinket from sha, keeping BA up all the time shouldn't be an issue, yes I know with the constant switching targets in the Naz encounter and the fact you can't dps him durring his defensive stance that the 95% isn't possible. but on single target encounters such as IJ/Malk/Thok/Siege(if your lucky enough not to have to do belts) BA/SS should be up 100% of the time

      We are also open to discuss a possible merge and get a smaller group or guild that is struggling to get their raids going, or that they want to advance to the next level. Most of us are versatile people and we can possibly reroll to achieve a good composition after a merge.
      Any social and friendly person who wants to join us for kicks and giggles is welcome. Just poke any of our officers online and you will get an invite for a social spot (no raiding spot).
      ABOUT US:
      Gordian Knot is a semi-hardcore raiding guild that consists of experienced raiders with some of them having raiding experience as far back as Vanilla.
      We are a friendly group who enjoys World of Warcraft and loves raiding. We have fun and joke around but when bosses need to go down then all is serious! We wish for all our members to enjoy the game as much as we do and we expect raiders to maintain a 80% attendance per month.
      We also enjoy a variety of other activities such as running a lot of Mythic+ dungeons doing alt-runs, achievement runs etc.
      We generally aim to push Mythic+ to get +15 keys done for the weekly chests. We do this in spirit to help everyone in the guild getting their highest possible gear reward from their weekly cache (socials included).
      There are a few things we hold in high value but above else we value friendliness and politeness towards guildies and other players and skilfulness when it comes to the more serious parts of the game.
      CURRENTLY:
      We raid 3 nights a week, Wednesdays, Sundays and Mondays, from 20:00 till 23:00 server time.
      Although we are a 20-man guild, we usually run an extra group in order to get more people to experience the joys of raiding, help new raiders learn the Knot’s way to down bosses and gearing up. Usually, these runs happen on Saturdays. Also, every Friday and sometimes Thursdays too, we’re on RBGs killing alliance scums or on other in game activities!
      Our current guild progress is 11/12 in Ny'alotha mythic, and we're focusing on getting further Mythic progress. Our aim is to always progress as much as possible but also to have a relaxed and fun atmosphere at the same time!

      Current Progress:
      11/12M Ny'alotha
      Recruitment:
      We're currently progressing on N'zoth with a set team of raiders so keep this in mind when applying. Your application will still be considered for farm content and Shadowlands, though very exceptional applications which may be placed into current N'zoth progression team. Thank you
      Ranged DPS: Priest, Warlock, Hunter, Mage
      Melee DPS: None
      Healers: None
      Our raiding schedule is:
      - Thursday: 20.00 - 23.00 (server time)
      - Monday: 20.00 - 23.00 (server time)
      - Tuesday: 20.00 - 23.00 (server time)
      Apply here: https://safetynotguaranteed.wixsite.com/guild
      Even if we are not actively recruiting your class, we will consider any exceptional applications.
      About us:
      Safety not Guaranteed (SnG) was initially formed by a small group of friends in early MoP, raiding 10man heroic. Later during the expansion we expanded our roster to a 20man team, where we cleared SoO mythic as a guild. Many of us have been playing together since as early as WotLK, and have friendships with each other that extend outside the game as well.
      Our goal ever since the guild was formed has been to progress through content at a steady pace without hardcore hours, while having a good time. We aim to clear each tier before the next one is released, and have managed to maintain a steady raiding roster throughout the years, clearing most mythic content in WoD and Legion with cutting edge achievements, and plan to continue doing so in BfA.
      What we offer:
      A structured mythic raiding team and raiding times. We start invites 19:45 and begin to clear trash so we can have the first pulls at 20:00 A steady guild with a good community and good guild atmosphere. You may encounter some trolling during your stay. A focused attitude during progression, and relaxed attitude during farm content. We like to chat and have fun, but focus during difficult content. A desire to raid. We often run an extra raid day on the 1st week of a new raid tier. This is 100% optional, but most people are excited to get into a new instance. Additionally we often run some sort of alt raids on the weekends (100% optional), and do a lot of mythic+ content within the guild.
      What we want from you:
      Attendance. We expect a minimum of 80% attendance, though most of our raiders have near to 100%. We run a small roster to minimize rotation, and want to be able to rely on you. Commitment. We don't want someone who is looking to join, get geared and then leave. We have a 2-3 week trial period during which we will control gearing while we get to know you. Honesty. If you're having problems within the guild, or have real life issues, we'd like to hear rather than you just disappearing. Talk to us. Be prepared! This means reading up on new fights, having consumables (flask, pots, food, runes), gemming and enchanting properly, and being on time! Communication. We want you to know how to communicate both verbally and in writing. We have a guild Discord we use for our raids and other games! Raiding awareness. We want you to not stand in fire, unless it's required... Progression oriented attitude. Everyone makes mistakes, but learning is part of progression, so we value people who continue to improve over time. Understanding. Sometimes, things don't always go smoothly. We may hit a wall on a specific boss for a while, or you may have to sit for someone else during a progression raid. This is part of mythic raiding. We try to treat everyone fairly, and are open to feedback.
      For more information you can add an officer to chat: Joana#2806, Kitty#2896, Menetherin#2691, Cabbageman#21462
