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

      Two Strike Policy - US Sargeras - Alliance
      Why Two Strike Policy?
      Two Strike Policy is a fairly new guild on US-Sargeras Alliance side, trying to make a name for itself in the wake of Antorus the Burning Throne. TSP has a friendly group of skilled, ambitious, like-minded raiders and humble players. We're easy going, we love to have fun, and we enjoy our raiding experience together while without the negative racist, sexist, homophobic behavior. We are non-biased and intolerant of drama in any form. When raiding with our guild, you will find that the atmosphere is very laid-back. However, when the time comes for progression, we know how to focus and get the job done. Absolutely no swap-blasting in MYTHIC raids. 
      Our number one priority in Two Strike Policy is maintaining our positive environment so that members are happy to log on and excited to raid and work together.
      Loot: Two Strike Policy is Loot Council.
      We divide loot by means of a loot council comprised of the guild officers and one rotating core raider weekly - so they know what happens behind the scenes. We take into consideration various factors such as:
      • Performance
      • Raid attendance
      • Previous Loot
      • Attitude and drive for progression
      In need of these specific roles:
      High Priority Recruitment:
      Healer: Holy Paladin.
      Ranged DPS: Mage.
      Melee DPS: Arms Warrior, Havoc DH, Rogue and Unholy DK (Classes that play multiple specializations preferred).
      Tank: Monk and Druid.
      *Please note we are ALWAYS looking to upgrade our roster. If you do not see your class listed but are confident you can perform at our level, do not hesitate to contact us*
      Our raid times are as follows:
      Tuesday - 7:30pm - 11:00pm EST (6pm-10pm CST)
      Wednesday - 7:30pm - 11:00pm EST (6pm-10pm CST)
      Optional Thursday for Alt Runs - 7:30pm - 11:00pm EST(6pm-10pm CST)
      Progression:
      5/9 Mythic Tomb of Sargeras - (Moving on to Maiden after Mistress).
      7/10 Mythic Nighthold Realm - (In 7.3 most are 9/10m or 10/10m – began late in tier as a guild). - Still run on weekend for Warforge/Titanforge Tier Pieces/Items. 
      7/7 Mythic Emerald Nightmare  - 
      Applicant Requirements: *
      Attendance:
      We raid two nights a week during active progression, Tuesday-Wednesday. Raid invites go out at 7:30pm EST, begin raiding at 8:00pm and run until 11:00pm. There may be occasions when raids run slightly later than usual, this is typically 5-10 minutes over for progression/trash re-clear avoidance. If you cannot sustain a high rate of attendance (80% minimum), this is not the guild for you.
      Skill:
      Can you do your job well while still being aware of environmental hazards? Bringing situational awareness is a must. Will you be able to adjust to an emergency change in the strategy without losing your main focus or panicking? Being able to adapt is crucial. If so, you're the kind of player we're looking for.
      Gear:
      Your gear directly enhances your performance. Is it all properly gemmed, upgraded and enchanted? Is your artifact weapon at 60? The amount of effort you put into your gear correlates to the amount of effort you put into raiding. If your gear is not equivalent or close enough to the gear associated with the content we are clearing to allow you to carry your own weight, you must prove to us, without a doubt, you are the correct choice for your position through outstanding play, and motivation to improve not only gear but skill.
      Intelligence:
      Are you smart? Do you make the same mistake twice? Can you learn from someone else’s mistake? Can you evaluate a given situation on the fly, and make the right decision in a split second?
      Experience:
      You need to have experience close to that of the guilds current progression, past raiding experience is also a plus.
      Package Deals:
      We will automatically decline applicants whose membership within Two Strike Policy is dependent on another person's membership. No exceptions.
      Public Communication:
      Two Strike Policy cares about our public persona. It is for this reason we ask that unless you are buying/selling items offering or engaging services you are asked to not post in Trade/General/Instance chats. Trolling is not tolerated and can have you removed from the guild.
      General requirements include:
      * Preferably 18+, but just be mature.
      * Ability to use Discord and have working mic.
      * Ability to frequently check up on our forums for updates on raid strategies and other general guild information.
      * Income supply sufficient to support the repairs that a good progression week will result in. Consumables are also required for both progression and most farm raids. Once you pass trial, the guild supplies raiders with full repairs and flasks/pots for raid nights.
      * Stable Connection!! More or less NO disconnects during the fight. In order to play this game at the level we expect, you need a decent computer and a good internet connection.
      Feel free to contact any officer ingame with any questions!

      It could happen to us all sometimes our light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from others. Each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have lit that flame within us.
      At Project Nemesis we prefer to be stupid, be dumb, be funny, that's who we are and a beacon of crazyness that would make the Loony Toons proud, we don't try to be something that the WoW community may want us to be; that's stupid. Were just ourselves.
      Will we go quietly into the night?
      Will we be assimilated into the collective?
      NOT LIKELY!
      Were working as intended version 1.0 baby! youll not re-boot us. The CIA,FBI, MI5 hasnt decrypted our Simcraft
      What can I say about us that isn’t like the conventional norm? Myth + this HC that blah blah blah, our guild members all have attractive and funny friends and/or spouses possibly? That were rocket scientists, brain surgeons, army generals, or wealthy stock brokers?
      Yes were slowing going through at our own Pace ToS 5/9 HC and looking for additional healers and some range DPS
      Confidence is not simply, 'They will like us'. Confidence instead is, 'We'll be fine if they don't'....
      Become the exception to the rule and youll become better for it, our thought processes arent just out of the box theyre out of this world
      Raid Days are:
      Monday & Wednesday: 2100- 2300 ST
      Tuesdays & Thursdays: Mythic + aka The Banzai Bashathon
      Fridays: Free for all (100k Gold Participation Fee)
      Saturday: Community Raid Events
      Sunday: Group therapy
      Want to participate in the Teamspeak Karaoke during the raid? go for it. Laughter is our weapon and frivolity is our shield, its not the journey but the memories that will become our legendary.
      How about joining the guild with the fresh lemony scent of fun and person appreciation, we'll have you so immersed in green guild chat youll be jumping off cliffs and pulling 20000+ mobs in no time (seagulls excluded).
      Whilst we are all here on Azeroth to help others; what on Azeroth the others are here for I don't know.
      Many gamers lose their tempers merely from seeing us keep ours; honestly this is why our recipe is simple....
      Fun we carry it in the new and improved Gnomic designed and Dwarven engineered WheelbyTron ASX 2000GTI and is a luxury best served warm you guessed it were proud owners of the "Acme Leisure Gnomemaster ZSW100F520X Burnathonmatic" version 2.0 with Dual Fuel to keep it so!
      Our gratitude unlocks the fullness of guildlife this turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. ...pfft we Like our Chaos! Do we turn a meal into a Raid feast? a Guild into a home, a stranger into the most invaluable thing a friend....Definately
      We could quote good old Gnomaac Asimov as saying People who think they know everything are a great annoyance to those of us who do.

      Hi!
      I would like to ask somethng about ice lance and other procs aswell.
      To maximize dps, should you always try to get rid of Fingers of Frost procs with ice lances? And if you get flurry proc, do you want to get rid of ice lance procs before casting flurry + lance combo?
      I am not sure how much icicles and maximizing their damage output before dumping them affects your damage.
      Thank you

      Hello everyone.
       
      I've been playing hunter MM as my main for a while, but lately i've noticed that my DPS output might not be as high as it should. A couple of months ago, I tought it might be my ilvl or my mastery that was too low, but i've tried different builds and i still can't get closer to some other hunters I run into some ToS H pugs.
       
      I'm actually sitting at 938 iLvl. Don't have many BiS, but my stats are kinda high. My weapon relics are bad(low ilvl, i'm still stuck with 915 relics), and I still didn't get any other good legendary besides the Soul of the Huntmaster.
       
      So my question is: Am I doing something wrong or it's just my relics/trinkets that aren't very decent? I was happy when i get past the 1M dps mark, but now i'm stuck at that point, and I can't see to get past that.
       
      Here's my armory link: https://worldofwarcraft.com/pt-br/character/azralon/piccola
       
      Hopefully you guys can help me out on this. Thanks!
