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

      ABOUT US:
      Gordian Knot is a 20-man 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.
      There are a few things we hold in high value but above else we value friendliness and politeness towards guildies and other players and skillfulness 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 Thursdays. Also, every Friday and sometimes Saturdays too, we're on RBGs killing alliance scums!
      Saturdays are generally left for those RBGs or older content runs for fun and drinking!
      Our current guild progress is 6/9 in Battle of Dazar'alor 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!
