Beast Mastery Hunter 6.2

Recommended Posts

Yooz, Hunters are seeing crit builds give much more damage than haste. It's on Niix's guide in the Icy Veins hunter forum, Azerothian's guide in the MMO Champion forum, and has shown itself to be superior when I tried out 4 different builds on a target dummy yesterday. (I went through an agility build, crit build, haste build, and mastery build. Crit did 3X the damage of all the other builds). Please update the Icy Veins guide. People are buying the wrong gems, including my guildies. Thank you  ^..^

You are absolutely correct. AskMrRobot had me replacing a lot of gems with Accurate Imperial Amethyst (haste and crit), Smooth Sun's Radiance (pure crit) and Rigid River's Heart (again with the crit). ShaZam! Should hit like a Mack truck now!

Stat priority says Multistrike > Agility, but below Agility is still said to be the primary stat "look for it in all your gear". The explanation text below needs updating.

A primary stat is Agility/Intellect/Strength/Stamina, as opposed to secondary stats, which are the other stats. It's just how they're called.

To be entirely fair, Crit is wildly close to Haste and Mastery for every spec. These are the weights that I use, and I believe they are very very close if not exactly the same as Azor's.

 

MM:

 

Agility: 1

Weapon DPS: 2.07

Crit: .80

Haste: .75

Mastery: .74

 

 

BM: 

 

Agility: 1

Weapon DPS: 1.18

Crit: .70

Haste: .63

Mastery: .62

 

 

The difference in using a Crit > Haste > Mastery build for either one of the specs as opposed to a Mastery > Haste > Crit build ends up being very very marginal at best.

I'm just curious why you say it's the top dos spec, after playing both BM and MM throughout SoO since patch i consistently do higher dps as MM.

In Section 5.4.3. Tier 4 Talents there is this in the "Thrill of the Hunt" section:

 

"It is also important to use these procs up quickly, so as not to have any new ones wasted. In such cases, you can give Aimed Shot a higher priority than your tier 6 talents."

 

Mentioning Aimed Shot in the BM guide might be confusing to some.

Not only is that confusing, it's also wrong. My bad, it's easy to mix up the shots sometimes when editing all the guides one after the other :)

 

It should be fixed now. Thank you!

I appear to be missing something. As a BM Hunter, I have steady shot, and steady focus benefits Steady shot... Why would i want to switch over to using Cobra shot, since it does less damage, takes the same cast time, and the same focus generation?

Wouldn't crit pull pretty far ahead of Multi-strike in PVP since MS only ticks once instead of twice?  Unless that is reflected in this guide somewhere and I missed it.

Do you think you could give stat weights for all the stats? I know what I should be building with stat priorities and everything, however I would like to be able to put these stats into ask Mr. Robot to see how it compares. The stats Mr. Robot has atm do not seem to be correct according to your stat priority. Thanks.

That is really not something we can do. Stat weights depend greatly on each individual character, and the priorities we list in our guides have to be generally applicable. If you want exact stat weights, you really need to run your character through Simcraft.

 

too many mistakes for a single class guide....lots of trust is lost

Would you care to point out a few of them? I'd love to fix them! Thanks.

Perhaps it would, but this guide is intended purely for PvE, so we can't really discuss something like that.

This kind of comment is utterly useless. If you see a mistake, you are literally commenting on the thread to tell us about it, yet you list none.

 

Where is there a mistake in this guide, I would love to hear what you think is wrong.

It might be usefull to add a Macro for Kill Command. As you state during your guide that using kill command will be cast on the target of your pet, not specifically on yours.

An optional Macro should be plausible for BM's to have the pet attack first and then cast Kill Command. or is there an issue with making such a macro?

I think the pet is pretty good now at being on the right target. I'm not aware of any such macro being popular in general, but maybe I'm wrong.

Yeah the pet still takes a few seconds to switch, this macro is what you're looking for.

 

#showtooltip Kill Command
/petattack [target=target]

      Two top Arena World Championship players, including a BlizzCon champion and a 2nd place finisher, received suspensions yesterday, one permanent, as both were found to be using Real Money Trading.
      First off we have Emil "Zeepeye" Ek, who won last year's EU side of the AWC and had previously finished in 2nd place during the 2019 AWC BlizzCon finals, and is now suspended for 6 months. The RMT was related to "coaching", which could be interpreted as boosting by some, and Ek had a lengthy explanation of what happened and why:
      Secondly, a previous 1-year suspension was made permanent, as Martin "Loony" Moazzez (who shared the EU AWC 2020 win with Zeepeye and had previously won BlizzCon 2014) also participated in Real Money Trading and coaching. There's a lot more to his story, as the initial 1-year suspension actually wasn't for RMT but more complicated and, well, worse:

      What would be the worst thing that could happen in the Shadowlands? The Jailer winning and remaking the way death works? Destroying the universe to build a new one? Sylvanas getting redeemed and us having to suffer through her being on our side again? Well, it turns out 9.1 might be bringing something MUCH darker on us than all of that combined.
      Sarazzan made this horrifying discovery when looking at the ending of the 9.1 cinematic, as a certain glowy light at the end of the chains over in Korthia is hinting at... terror:

      So get ready for a return to the CHAMPIONizing and WOONZing ways of BfA, as everyone's least favorite Christmas tree ornament might be coming back. When you think about it it makes sense too, as the instant he wasn't needed to save Azeroth anymore some very smart people decided to banish him into the deepest depths of the Shadowlands, but alas the Jailer just hates us SO much that he's bringing him back.
      Here are some of the measured and very accurate comments from the post:
      And just in case you forgot why players are scared to death of him, here are a couple of reminders:

      We have two pretty great videos of Priests taking matters into their own hands, as Leap of Faith "helps" the DPS do the mechanics properly... and sometimes not so much.
      The first clip is a truly amazing example of "healers have to do everything"/babysitting the DPS, as this Priest took control and completed the Lady Inerva mechanic using a puppet:
      However, there's always a flip side to things, as this Priest had the same idea, with a somewhat different outcome on Stole Legion:

      Bellular had the opportunity to interview Steve Danuser and Morgan Day. Interview highlights include deliberate parallels between Anduin, and Arthas, the story of Garrosh, Ner'zhul, and Yrel in Shadowlands, and more. Check out our recap to learn more!
      Interview Highlights
      There are some deliberate parallels between Arthas and Anduin in the new cinematic, but also differences. For a brief moment, Anduin was horrified about what he's done before the Jailer's power of Dominion took hold of him again. That didn't happen with Arthas. It appears we're going to learn more about Ner'zhul in Shadowlands. Garrosh Hellscream also has a small role to play in Patch 9.1. They don't want to reveal any spoilers, though. We will also hear more about Yrel, who wielded the light's power to destroy Mag'har Orcs in the Allied Race unlock scenario.

      We've skipped one week due to BlizzConline, but we're back checking out the most popular DPS specializations for Mythic+ in Shadowlands Season 1!
      DATA RELIABILITY: The data used in this article comes from benched.me. Reddit user OtherwiseUniversity7 plotted all keys available from the Blizzard API (excluding the CN region) on a single ridge plot to gather the data.
      This Week's Affixes
      Tyrannical Raging Quaking Prideful Total Runs Recorded
      We've looked at the total runs recorded for each DPS spec during the 10th week of Mythic Season 1. Based on the numbers, we filter out the most popular ranged and melee DPS specializations.

      Most Popular Melee DPS for Mythic+
      Unholy Death Knight remains the most popular melee specialization for Mythic+ with more than 2 million runs accumulated so far in Shadowlands Season 1. Havoc Demon Hunter is second, and in third place, we have Outlaw Rogue (up from 4th position).
      The least popular melee specialization is Survival Hunter. The spec swapped places with Assassination Rogue.
      1st: Unholy Death Knight - 2,097,235 runs 2nd: Havoc Demon Hunter - 1,637,153 runs 3rd: Outlaw Rogue - 1,609,677 runs 4th: Retribution Paladin - 1,567,321 runs 5th: Windwalker Monk - 1,484,006 runs 6th: Arms Warrior - 1,306,343 runs 7th: Fury Warrior - 1,112,379 runs 8th: Subtlety Rogue - 975,157 runs 9th: Enhancement Shaman - 841,074 runs 10th: Feral Druid - 377,938 runs 11th: Frost Death Knight - 346,118 runs 12th: Assassination Rogue - 100,465 runs 13th: Survival Hunter - 98,163 runs Detailed Look at Spec Performance
      The meta starts kicking in at around +16, where most specs start losing their share of representation to the metaclasses. Some non-meta specs stay stable in mid-range keys and only begin disappearing at higher levels.

      Share of Melee DPS Specs at Each Key Level (Weekly Top 500 Runs)
      To see how the meta changes during the season, we sample the top 50 runs for each dungeon (a total of 6,000 keys) for each week. Next, we count the number of times each spec appears in the weekly top 500 sample.
      The data has a zig-zag quality to it. Spec numbers go up and down each week, which is the Tyrannical/Fortified split effect. On Tyrannical weeks, pushers are likely to bench their meta-class mains and play non-meta alts.

      Most Popular Ranged DPS for Mythic+
      Nobody is going to beat Marksmanship Hunter. The spec has accrued almost 5 million runs in Season 1 so far. Balance Druid is second with over 3.2 million runs. Fire Mage occupies 3rd position.
      The least popular spec is Demonology Warlock, with just +30k runs in 2 weeks.
      1st: Marksmanship Hunter - 4,902,342 runs 2nd: Balance Druid - 3,262,862 runs 3rd: Fire Mage - 3,077,748 runs 4th: Shadow Priest - 1,897,133 runs 5th: Affliction Warlock - 1,434,623 runs 6th: Beast Mastery Hunter - 1,275,258 runs 7th: Frost Mage - 1,120,937 runs 8th: Destruction Warlock - 875,969 runs 9th: Elemental Shaman - 853,552 runs 10th: Arcane Mage - 432,427 runs 11th: Demonology Warlock - 305,421 runs Detailed Look at Spec Performance
