Better focus pooling and KC usage would see you rise a little bit.  42 casts out of a possible 48.

 

Another thing to do is make sure BW covers two KCs by having KC very near or off CD before you activate BW.

 

Otherwise, your play is pretty solid.  Advanced techniques could include trying to hover around 70 avg focus, swinging from 100 to 40 instead of 70 to 10.  Makes not capping harder, but makes sure you get every possible KC.

I agree with Hybrys. You know the bm priority pretty well. You may find an add line JSHB can help you with estimating your focus for your next shot. Its a pretty nifty addon that puts customizable focus bar on your screen.

 

So here you can see that casting my cobra shot will almost focus cap me. My bar will change colors depending on what my current focus is. Below 40 focus it turns red, below 95 it turns green and at 96+ its a yellow color. The darker yellow indicates what my focus will be after cobra shot hits.  It also shows you the focus regen if you are casting a cobra shot. It will show you dps cooldowns and durations.

Thanks for the response Hybrys , I've never tried hovering over high amounts of focus, I've been told that spending = DPS . How does the 100-40 pool range work and does it feel the same ?

Spending does = DPS, but you spend and gain the same amounts when pooling focus; it just looks like a higher number.  When the fight is coming to a close (last 10-15 seconds), you'd dump your focus to 0 and come out exactly the same as not pooling, as long as you didn't focus cap.

 

It feels pretty awkward, really.  You have to train yourself to not spend it.  But it would definitively fix your KC issue by always having focus available for it.

 

 

The alternative is better predicting when KC is going to come off CD, and having 50 focus ready for that.  That requires a lot of attention and forethought compared to trying to pool, though.

I've been told that when opening not to use focus gaining cd's ex.(Dire beast, Cobra shot) because of the buff you get from bestial wrath, is it true in this case ? Am I at all times trying to keep 40-100 focus besides the last 10-15secs. Thanks again for the reply

I always hit Dire Beast and Bestial Wrath together, personally.  They line up together so nicely, and the extra focus from Dire Beast could allow more Arcane Shots during BW.

 

Typically, you'll want to avoid Cobra Shot, and only use spenders (KC > GT > Arc) during BW.  This is because your spenders do more damage than Cobra Shot and the multiplier affects them more.

 

What I used to do is sit around 30-35 focus, until KC has around 1.5 sec of the CD left, then I Cobra Shot into a KC.  Pooling focus isn't a hard and fast rule.  It's just worthwhile to know that KC is the most important spell, and if you don't hit it every time you're losing damage.

Yea that looks great. I know it has taken me a long time refine my ui. A good ui can increase dps as much as getting the shot priorities right.

      Hey everyone, I thought I would post up my deck. Its nothing crazy new, just a revamped secrets deck for the new expansion and is working fairly well for me. 

      http://www.hearthpwn.com/deckbuilder/hunter#8:2;99:2;163:2;210:1;344:2;363:2;447:1;483:2;553:2;578:2;42021:1;42050:2;42051:2;58724:1;61819:1;61827:2;62837:1;62854:2;

      Wazzup this is my first forum post and stuff and im wondering what you think it the best talent to go for!

      <Trust> may be what you're looking for if you enjoy killing internet dragons with a group of like minded players! Currently we are 8/9 Heroic, soon to be stepping into Mythic ToS. We are recruiting to finish rounding out our raid team. <Trust> is located on the [US] Doomhammer/Baelgun pve servers, alliance side! Check us out!
       
      About Us:
      <Trust> is a recently formed guild, founded by a group of long time players that have been raiding together for a couple of years now. Founded out of a desire to continue raiding in a casual-progression manner, we work towards defeating mythic bosses. <Trust> is a raiding guild, first and foremost.
       
      Our Raids:
      <Trust> maintains a progression-oriented 2-day semi-casual raiding team. That's 'semi' as in we expect our team members to always prioritize life first; but not 'casual' as in we take downing bosses less seriously. We strive to maintain a balance of taking our progression raids seriously while having plenty of laughs along the way.
       
      Raid Schedule:
      Tuesday & Thursday: 5p – 8p server (8p – 11p eastern)
      Friday(optional): 5p – 8p server (8p – 11p eastern)
       
      Recruitment:
      <Trust> is looking for full time Resto Druid, Mages, Hunters, and Warlocks for our raid team. We are also open for good people to join as casual players, pvpers, with the option to join farm content or alt raids.
       
      More Info:
      Feel free to reach out to us:
      Recruitment Officer:
      In game - Treylawny
      Battletag - Treylawny#1813
       
      Guild Lead:
      In game – Oleic
      Battletag - Jarg#1591
       
      -OR-

      2x Alleycat 1x Emerald Reaver 2x Fiery Bat 2x Fire Fly 2x Jeweled Macaw 2x Raptor Hatchling 1x Stampede 1x The Marsh Queen 2x Tracking 2x Crackling Razormaw 2x Scavenging Hyena 1x Deadly Shot 2x Kill Command 2x Stitched Tracker 1x Cult Master 2x Houndmaster 1x Tol'vir Warden 1x Tundra Rhino 1x Deathstalker Rexxar
      Here's my current take on the quest Hunter. Stitched Tracker and Build-A-Beast in my eyes have really given Hunter some good and greatly needed flexibility. The ability to create an extra Tol'vir Warden, Tundra Rhino, Hyena, or Cult Master, or any of the various 1 drops needed for the quest allow for a nice range of minions without having to worry about getting that one draw you need to combo. Build-A-Beast is such a fantastic ability and the AOE that Deathstalker Rexxar gives is a very welcome addition. While a little expensive Exploding Bloatbat + anything with charge, preferably a Boar, gives Hunter a nice suicide bomb. Alternatively Hyena + anything with Stealth is a great way to safely build up lethal, or a Stealth Rhino to consistently hurl charge raptors at your opponent's face.  

      This deck is by no means perfect, but it's a hell of a lot of fun to play in its current iteration. I'm open to any suggestions or criticisms about how to make this more viable.
