ok im looking at the first few wipes because you were not there for the boss kill.

 

ok first thing your Serpent Sting up time is extremely low. I'm seeing any where from 50 to 70% uptime this should be closer to 95%. your black arrow usage is in the is all over the board. I'm seeing 40% to 70% both. are key for dps.

Glaive Toss in your first 10 min wipe you used it 26 times out of 66 times that you could use it.

Explosive Shot it look like you only use it when lock at load procks. never when it dose not because if my math is right you had 29 l&l proc and it give you 3 Explosive Shot in a row so that 87. make sure you are using it even if the l&l is not proc.

 

 i looked up your toon and your  Expertise Rating is only 7.01 you need to get that up to 7.5.

Thank you for the help! I will watch the serpent sting more. And I downloaded some more addons for help with that. Those I use cobra shot all the time does it not refresh serpent sting?

it dose but in a fight like hellscream with add and tran phases it fall off.cobra shot add 6 sec ( and that dose not stack).so in heavy movement phases when you have a lot of Focus a lot of time people forget to keep up the cobra shot. look at it this way in wipe 1 you ss 24 time so of the 10 min 22 sec wipe 3:60 of that time ss was up( that just with ss) so you cobra shot 82 time that it hit. so that times 6 sec that cs refreshes ss 4:92 so combined the both is 8:52. so best case your ss was up 8:52. on hellscream. but that also dose not take in to account when you cast it and if you chain cast it so you can knock off about a min or so( rounding) that ss was not on the boss. so of 10.22 sec ss was on the boss 7:52 so al most for 3 min the boss did not have ss on it. that huge amount of dps loss

Serpent Sting uptime will not ruin anyone's DPS, it's just the easiest thing to check but it's honestly a waste of time, there are so many more important things to check (they'd require a proper single-target log of an IJ//Malk log though ideally) to see how you actually play single-target.

 

I do the auditing thing on SentryTotem and the most common mistakes DPS-wise are in this order..

 

1) APM/CPM/casts per minute, low activity, globals lost.

2) Black Arrow uptime (in terms of SV hunters) and Kill Command count in terms of BM hunters.

3) Dire Beast usage (in terms of BM hunters), basically sub-45% uptime on it is bad.

 

I'd start at #1 @OP

 

For instance your APM this Garrosh wipe was 39.5 (http://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/jnHwkCzDGvT3xWrK#fight=1&type=casts&source=6&options=2&by=source)

 

Which doesn't say much cuz there's lots of downtime that fight, but yeah check the link and you know where you can find APM, compare your single-target logs to those of parsing hunters and whatnot. 60+ APM single-target is ideal..

Serpent sting uptime is a lot more important than Azortharion is trying to tell you. It gives you 3 focus every 3 seconds and simply does an incredible amount of damage over the course of the fight. It's not a DPS loss to maintain it 100% so why wouldn't you? CPM is obviously number one because you always want to be casting something. 

 

With that being said, you simply just need to improve your DoT uptimes, your uptimes on bosses could be a lot better as well. You need to be simply clicking more spells, it's that simple. There's not too much else I can tell you. Hunter logs are weird to analyze right now because of our T16 4p and ToTH. It makes things a little too random.

I am not saying it is unimportant, but it's a silly thing to audit someone's logs with, because it's not going to make a world of difference, as you would need an entire Serpent Sting's worth of downtime to actually get enough focus for a single Arcane Shot. It's just a waste of time.

 

I'm not saying anyone should neglect Serpent Sting either... Really dunno how you extrapolated that from what I wrote. >_>

I didn't say that you told him to neglect it.

That is all I had to say about Serpent Sting. Nowhere did I say you said to neglect it. -_- It costs literally nothing to maintain it close to 100%, so there is literally no reason not to. It's not the most important thing, I even agreed with you and said that CPM should come first.

To be pedantic, there are times (during LnL) when you might as well let Serpent Sting drop just to reapply it manually by the end of your cycle.

So I have been Simcrafting myself and almost pulling the dps that I should. I have a question on the Trap Mastery. I see the Survival is the only spec with trap mastery. Should I always be placing traps down or is the more of a passive ability? Thank you all for your inputs they have helped along with more research.

You should be putting Explosive Traps down on multiple targets if it's gonna have significant (60%+) uptime, it's free damage for no cost, but apart from that it's just a passive bonus because Survival is the more trappy/wilderness-based hunter spec.

      So I looked around the forums and couldn't find an answer for this, figured I'd post here and if I missed the answer somewhere else, someone is bound to tell me where it is, either way. During Bestial Wrath should I be keeping up Dire frenzy as normal or should I be focusing solely on Cobra Resets and Kill Command? Also, same question for Titans Thunder.

      Hello,
      The Sworn is recruiting range DPS & Tank. We are a Horde guild on Arthas and our current progression is 7/11 Mythic Antorus. We only raid two nights a week, Tuesday and Wednesday from 9:15 PM until 12:15 AM Eastern. Currently, our main goal is to push Mythic progression & finish out the raid before next patch, please keep this in mind if you wish to join us, because we will not be doing Heroic or anything like that.
      From you, we would expect 100% attendance during your trial period; after that if you cannot make a raid or will be late it is mandatory to keep the raid leader updated. In order to continue making good progression while raiding only two nights a week, we expect that you know your class inside-out and will research any bosses you are unfamiliar with prior to raids.
      As far as classes are concerned, at this time, we do not have ANY rogues, DPS warriors, havoc DH, or wind walkers.
      If you are interested, add me to battle tag and we will talk (violentravi#1826), I will accept mostly anyone who wants to be a bench or casual, but for raiding purposes, you must be able to provide logs.  If you cannot get ahold of me in game, I work nights, please shoot me an email, I check it at work often and I can get ahold of other officers via text/discord if it's urgent! violentnacho@gmail.com
      Thank you for your consideration
      Xoxo

      About Us
      Skunkworks is a guild for players who can not or do not want to commit to the time-intensive raid schedules of traditional "hardcore" guilds.
      However, we still maintain a high caliber player environment and make an efficient use of our raiding time.
      We raid Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7:00 - 11:00 PST, just 8 hours a week and never more.
       
      We are very protective of our guild environment and selective in recruitment. We are looking for solid players mechanically as well as intellectually.
      We all get paid to deal with idiots, why should we pay to spend our leisure time with them as well?
       
      Skunkworks has been around for multiple expansions and has historically always been at the top of the 2-night raiding guild scene.
