What am I doing wrong?

8 posts in this topic

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

      What we offer: Experienced, stable leadership with years of raiding experience. Free repairs. We have implemented a Master Crafter system. Raiders are required to donate 30 bloods or materials weekly to supply the bank with flasks, potions or food. If you are unable to do so, you may supply your own raiding materials.
      Loot is RCLootCouncil. Discord for communication. Off-night mythics, Karazhan and PVP is strongly encouraged.
      Raid Times: Friday, Saturday 8:30pm EST - 11:30pm EST
      What we expect: Individuals will come prepared for raids, gemmed & enchanted, having read up on strategies, and contributed to their gearing with mythics and world quests outside of normal raid times. Raiders will run the appropriate addons to assist with raiding such as DBM/Skada/Recount. Racism, sexism, and drama will not be tolerated in any form.
      Raiders should know their class, or where to find the appropriate information. Additionally, they should be open to give as well as receive constructive, positive feedback in an adult raiding environment.
      Current needs:
      Any ranged!

      Hello,
      Adelante is currently recruiting DPS & Heals, however, all competent players will be considered.  We are a Horde guild on Arthas and our current progression is 10/10H NH 6/7M EN and 3/3H TOV.  As far as classes go we do not have a Moonkin, Mage, Feral Druid, or any type of Monk. We only raid two nights a week, Tuesday and Wednesday from 7:00 PM until 11:00 PM Eastern.  Thursday is not considered a raid night, but we will often clear Heroic and Normal on this evening for AP and it is not required. We are pushing progression on Il'gynoth, and look forward to finishing off EN then moving on to Nighthold, we will be intermittently working on Mythic TOV.
      From you, we would expect 100% attendance during your trial period; after that, if you cannot make a raid or will be late it is mandatory to keep the raid leader updated.  In order to continue making good progression while raiding only two nights a week, we expect that you know your class inside-out and will research any bosses you are unfamiliar with prior to raids.
      If you are interested, please PM me (violentravi#1826) or recruiting officer Sepsis (tuxedomask#1712) in game.  However, if you have time (which goes a long way) for us to give you a real evaluation there is a short forum to fill out linked on our discord: https://discord.gg/JMVuYRW
       
      Thank you for your consideration
      Xoxo
      Violentnacho & the Guild
