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.

      This is similiar to Secret Hunter with the addition of Kathrena package and Rexxar DK, it has both good early game and great late game with huge damage from charges and DK hero power.
      It has only 3 legendaries that are necessary to make the deck works and not exchangable with anything else.
      1x Candleshot
      2x Secretkeeper
      2x Wandering Monster
      2x Freezing Trap
      2x Cat Trick
      2x Eaglehorn Bow
      2x Animal Companion
      2x Kill Command
      1x Unleash the Hounds
      2x Deadly Shot
      2x Flanking Strike
      2x Spellbreaker
      2x Lesser Emerald Spellstone
      1x Seeping Oozeling
      1x Deathstalker Rexxar
      2x Charged Devilsaur
      1x Kathrena Winterwisp
      1x King Krush
       
      As you can see the only beasts in the deck are 7/7 or 8/8 with charge so the result of recruit is easy to predict, note that Charged Devilsaur when summoned by recruit can hit face directly since not activate the battlecry.
      The aim of the deck is either win with Wolves from spellstone and early beast summons or charging face with big dinos so stall enough until you can do so if your early game is worse than opponent. 
      Seeping oozeling will always copy Kathrena deathrattle unless you have her in your hand so don't keep Kathrena at 1st turn but keeping Oozeling is fine since it will swing the game if not silenced when played at turn 6.
      The deck is pretty solid and that's what I'm playing mostly in K&C.

      Hi, i have just tried out some Antorus bosses in mythic and i saw, that my logs are so.... 
      In heroic difficulty my logs are better. So I have no idea, what am I doing wrong there... As I am doing the same thing, only with a bit more tactics...
      Can anybody give some tips, on this matter?

      Hay,
       
      I seem to struggle to get better DPS. I figured out that i used chaos strike and blade dance to less. and i should use less Throw glaive and fellrush. 
      But i stil seem to have trouble getting my dps on.  Please take a look on the logs at the 14th. 
      I really dislike using the "eye beam build" (it feel slow to me) so i still use the 2221311 build.

      Hey guys, I was just wondering if anyone knew the best tier combination currently for survival hunter. Are we supposed to be running full 4-set from Antorus and keeping 2-set from Tomb, vice versa, etc. I took a little break from the game for a month, and didn't want to have the same problem coming back I did with ToS.
