What am I doing wrong?

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

      [H] Salvation (est.2007) is a progression raiding guild on US-Cenarion Circle/Sisters of Elune.
      Objective
      Salvation is actively searching and recruiting players for current heroic content. What we look to do in the short-term is recruit players and gear them in our farm content. Mythic + will be run as well since it serves as another outlet to gearing up. By doing this we prepare them for our long-term goal, Mythic Mode Progression.
      Recruiting for Tomb of Sargeras
      Tanks- Closed Melee- Rogue x1, Arms/Fury Warrior x1 Ranged- Mages x1, Hunter x2, Warlock x2, Balance Druid x1 Healers- Holy/Disc Priest x1, Resto/Ele Shaman x1

      ***Exceptional applicants can feel free to sign up even if we aren't recruiting your class/spec. Outstanding applications will always be considered.
      We are also accepting players that engage in social aspects of the WoW community such as leveling, PvP, questing, dungeon finding, roleplaying and other challenging activites. We provide monthly guild events. For example, the Tournament of Tiny Champions. It’s a pet battle tournament where guildies compete with each other using 3-6 of their mightiest level 25 tiny champions. We are expanding this extremely fun side of Salvation so that everyone can join in on some action and prizes!
      Raiding Schedule
      Our schedule is as follows. We push content three times a week for 3 hours at a time starting at 6:00pm to 9:00pm PST Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Mondays. 
      Our Raiding Requirements
      You must be able to raid all three nights. Be on time for raid. Lateness will not be tolerated. Be able to play the optimal specialization for Legion raid encounters. (this requirement is more towards the pure dps classes and hybrid classes in some special cases) Come prepared with the knowledge of the Legion raid bosses and mechanics. Have Discord app installed and a working microphone to communicate. Discord browser and phone app is also acceptable. (Note: Some of these requirements will change as time goes on.)
      How to Join
      Please sign up on our guild website at:

      Maximum Effort is a new guild on Cenarion circle (A). I was the raid leader for my guild for a long time and we built up a strong raid team. Due to do some dis-agreements between me and the guild leader I was forced to leave. But luckly enough a lot of my team followed me! We're working to build a guild focused around team work and group progression. We love doing mythics, raids, talking and theory crafting about the game!
      We have a very strong-core raid group, capable of clearing heroic and doing some mythic but we're just missing a few people to round it out!
      Raid nights.. Tue/wed 6-830pm server (9:30-11:30 est) Off night Monday 6-830pm server (9-11:30 est)
      Looking for.. -Any and all dps specs -possibly a raid healer
      All raid mats and needs are covered by guild, we run personal look just for the ease of it.
      My btag is Hethrus#1504 if you have questions or wish to try out!
