Hello and thanks for the very useful guide! I'm having some problems with the addons, i can't find a focus bar addon that actually works, none of those posted are updated for 6.0 ( Stay Focused! was last updated in 2011 and JS in mid 2014 but the project is abandoned). Currently i'm using the Elvui one by detaching it form the player frame but a specific one would be lovelly. Do you have any hints?

The guide sends some mixed signals about A Murder of Crows. It tells us on the Talent page that Stampede is the better option, then proceed to explain the rotation using A Murder of Crows as it is "the best (one) in terms of DPS."

Get Weak Auras 2 and use this WA string.  This is Niix's focus bar WA (not in any way or shape mine), and works good.  I've also seen somewhere on MMO-C that someone else updated and shared a JSHB update, but I haven't used it myself so I don't know whether or not it works (I would assume it does though).

This was a technical issue on our side, the two pages should now be in agreement. My apologies (P.S. it's Murder of Crows (for now)).

I dont agree with that in SoO Stampede as MM Hunter is still better. The Encounters are 2-3 Minutes alive in Mythic and Stampede got a higher burst.

Considering both got equally buffed (Direct +80% to AMoC and the change to pets inheriting 60% AP (60/33=1.8181818181x)), either one should be roughly as powerful relative to the other as before.  I haven't tested the difference between the two, but considering AoC reduces the CD of Stampede, but not AMoC, I would recommend using Stampede.

The only fight you'll want to use Crows on is Immerseus. On every other fight, other than Galakras and Spoils you'll want Stampede.

 

On Galak and Spoils you want Blink Strikes.

 

The 80% buff to AMoC is good, but the AP buff to pets is roughly an 83% increase to Stampede. Still leaving it ahead, especially since fights are sub 2:00 or close to it.

Now that I've seen the mastery of the MM why should we go on Haste. Mastery could push us more or am I wrong?
 
Edit:
 
I simcrafted now and the result was:
If 1 put in the yellow and the blue sockets some +10crit +10 mastery (greens ones) gem'S in I made more Dps. Tested it vs. blue +20crit and yellow +20crit gems.
 
now my gemming looks like:
 
Red Sockets: +10 Haste +10crit
Yellow Sockets: +10crit +10mastery
Blue Sockets: +10cit+10mastery
 
tell me if I'm wrong. Can't find a mistake I could have made.
 

Simcraft Results:

 

+10crit +10haste and +10crit +10mastery sockets:

Mastery only gets as much value as you are able to get out of it. Every sim you run regarding MM will have your uptime at 100% which realistically on most fights probably wont happen.. Haste is just more reliable than mastery and gives us much needed focus regen, since we have 3 spells that cost high amounts of focus. Aimed and Barrage are two of the most costly abilities in the game. Mastery is weighted at .79 while haste is .80 so they are both so close that even playing optimally with mastery > haste you wont see a DPS gain, and MM is very very tough to play with a 99% uptime on Sniper Training.

Something that I noticed. Why would you chose 10 crit 10 mastery when in those two slots you can get 20 crit? You're choosing to only get 10 of your best stat per gem instead of 20? It's not that mastery or haste are better than one another, it's that crit is better than both. You can't gem for crit + mastery in red sockets where that is the only one that you'd even want to.

 

Just for reference I ran the sims with the gem setup you posted above.

The difference is only ~70 DPS. Even if you have a 100% uptime on your mastery you'll still do worse than if you played with crit gems.

Sorry to nitpic, but since I simply love what you guys are doing here, just wanted to point out that in Marksmanship page, Tier 4 talents, Steady Shot references Cobra shot, which is for BM and SV (at least according to the tooltip smile.png), when it should reference Steady Shot!

 

Again, thanks for everything you guys do here. It's quite refreshing to have a guide that guides instead of say do this and shut up!

 

Cheers!

Hi, 

I would just like to point out the Cataclysm potions actually give more stats.

MOP: Flask of Sping Blossoms = 114 Agility

Cata: Flash of the Winds = 119 Agility.

 

This is the same for all stats, as STR and INT potions also give 114 and 119.

 

Thanks.

On the talent page you suggest Steady Focus as the talent as it is better dps, but on the rotation page, you suggest that Thrill of the Hunt is the better one, and the rotation is based on the idea that you took Thrill.

Hi, I don't understand why versatility is one of the worst weighted stats. If this guide argues that mastery is the best secondary stat if combat is static (to get increase of damage in % by sniper training) why it is not the best secondary stat the versatility that yields exactly the same damage increase (and other additional benefits)?

I'm still confused about the stat priority and gems. If Agility is still the best stat and Crit second, why would I gem for Crit and not for Agility (as we used to)? Or another example: If I had two items, one with 10 Agility and 20 Crit and the other with 20 Agility and 10 Crit, which one would be better?

 

About Thrill of the hunt: I often find myself with not enough focus when it procs, so I have to use a steady shot first. And even if I have enough focus for the first aimed shot, I have to use a steady shot after it. Most of the time chimaera shot is ready by then, and another steady shot to get some focus. Highly irritating for me to have a spell highlighted that I can't even use half the time (compared to lock and load for instance).

Regarding Gems:  The current (level 90, so this will change for 100) stat weights have Crit worth more than half of Agi weight (0.8 vs 1 respectively).  Crit gems give twice the amount of Crit than Agi gems do (20 Crit vs 10 Agi).  If you multiply the weight by the gain, you get the value of the gem, so a pure Crit gem is worth 20*.8=16 vs a pure Agi gem is worth 10*1=10.  As for the Crit/Haste gems, it is because Haste also has a weight that is more than half of Agi weight (~.75 vs 1 respectively). 

 

Regarding TotH, this is mostly a playstyle choice.  You aren't always going to be able to spam 3 Aimed Shots in a row when it procs, and in reality this will be very unlikely, since you do have Chimaera Shot and Barrage/Glaive Toss coming off cd or not enough focus when it procs (you need about 75 focus to chain cast all three back to back when it procs).  TotH is a RNG factor, and with good usage and uptime, can greatly increase your DPS.

So it says multistrike is the best stat but it also says to gem for crit is that because it doesn't calculate the extra 5% in from lethal shots on the stat priority page or what

Multi-Strike is our second best stat. Crit is our first, this should be changed.

So it says that the two main choices for the lvl 100 MM talents are Lone Wolf, or Focusing Shot. As someone who personally love Exotic Muntions, what can be done to make it more viable? Would removing the cast time help, or are the numbers just too low?

Noticed an issue: the guide says that the default choice for the tier 7 talent should be Lone Wolf but then says Glyph of Animal Bond is "practically mandatory".

      What's coming in Patch 7.3.2? The official patch notes are here!
      The patch is full of bug fixes and tuning in preparation for Antorus, the Burning Throne raid. The new raid won't open immediately, but at a later time after Patch 7.3.2 goes live. The update is available for background download through the Blizzard Battle.net app, so the patch will probably arrive sooner than expected with Antorus opening later after BlizzCon.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Patch 7.3.2 includes:
      General bug fixes and minor class balance changes. Additional currency support in Battle.net. Additional tuning in preparation for Antorus, the Burning Throne raid dungeon’s release. While this minor patch adds in additional tuning for Antorus, this raid won’t be available with the release of patch 7.3.2, and will open at a later date.
      CLASSES
      Druid Balance Touch of the Moon trait redesigned.  Now heals for an increasing amount per rank, with a fixed proc chance of 20% (was a fixed healing amount with a proc chance of 5% per rank). Additionally, will not proc if the caster is above 95% health. Shaman Elemental Shamanistic Healing trait redesigned. Now heals for an increasing amount per rank, with a fixed cooldown of 30 seconds (was a fixed healing amount with a cooldown of [30 seconds minus 2 seconds] per rank). CLASS HALLS
      Added three new missions: “Scour the Surface”, “Abandoned Armory”, and “Feed the Furnaces”. All reward follower armor upgrades. A Primal Sargerite vendor has been added to the Vindicaar (Maras). ITEMS
      Convergence of Fates now reduces the remaining cooldown on one of your powerful abilities by 4 seconds (was 5 seconds), and has 10% more primary stat. A number of class set items from legacy content can now be sold to vendors. LEGION COMPANION APP
      Restored the mission-complete button on the map. Updated to support 7.3.2 patch. PLAYER VERSUS PLAYER
      The weekly quest “Something Different” should now reward the correct Brawler's Footlocker based on the active season. The Primal Victory and Glorious Tyranny Illusions are now purchasable for 10 Marks of Honor for players who earned at least one of the following Achievements: Glorious Tyranny: Duelist or Hero of the Horde/Alliance in Season 14.

      Redditor eke00372 uploaded a video of Argus the Unmaker from PTR. Blizzard opened Antorus for testing and a guild was able to access the raid's final boss, even though testing should have ended with Aggramar. The fight is still very unfinished. The boss can be CCed and isn't even an elite.
      After defeating Aggramar, you talk to Magni and get teleported to the Seat of the Pantheon.
      The fight takes place in an area called Seat of the Pantheon.

      Everything you need to know about Legendary items in Patch 7.3.2.
      In Patch 7.3.2, Legendary items can be upgraded to item level 1,000. Blizzard also added Legendary tokens and a ring that empowers traits from the Netherlight Crucible.
      Upgrading Legendary Items
      In Patch 7.3.2 Legendary items can be upgraded to item level 1,000. The Cursed Shard quest is started by looting Cursed Shard. The item has a variety of sources. It can drop in LFR or you can get it by doing the first Random Heroic Dungeon of the day. Once you bring it to Arcanomancer Vridiel in Dalaran, you will get 10 Wakening Essences. Collect 50 Wakening Essences to get Awoken Titan Essence and upgrade a Legendary item to 1,000.
      Sources
      The Kirin Tor emissary bag did not reward any essences on PTR, but this can be random and needs further confirmation. Maybe they can only be collected from Argus faction bags. Antorus bosses drop a random amount of essences. Garothi Worldbreaker dropped 4 in LFR.
      Source Amount Status Mythic Order Hall Cache (Once a week) 20 Wakening Essences Confirmed Antorus Bosses (Each boss) 4 Wakening Essences (LFR 1st Boss) Confirmed Emissary Bag (Complete 5 World Quests) ? Wakening Essences Amount TBA First Random Heroic Dungeon (Once a day) 5 Wakening Essences Confirmed Weekly PvP Quests (2v2, 3v3, 10v10)
      ? Wakening Essences Amount TBA Cursed Shard (The Cursed Shard quest / one-time-only) 10 Wakening Essences Confirmed New Legendary Items
      Two Legendary item will be added in Patch 7.3.2. The legendary ring will be available to players that defeat Argus the Unmaker on Normal difficulty or higher and the trinket is a drop from Argus the Unmakere. The ring's affix increases the effects of Light and Shadow powers from the Netherlight Crucible by 50%. You can find more information in our Netherlight Crucible guide.
      Light Powers: Infusion of Light, Light's Embrace, Light Speed, Refractive Shell, Secure in the Light, Shocklight. Shadow Powers: Chaotic Darkness, Dark Sorrows , Master of Shadows, Murderous Intent, Shadowbind, Torment the Weak. Recently, Blizzard updated one of the Path of the Titans trinkets (Aman'Thul's Vision) to item level 1,000 and now it is a Legendary item that does not count toward the 2 Legendary cap. Path of the Titans trinkets can be upgraded with Pantheon's Blessing up to item level 1,000, so we're not sure yet, if all trinkets will be of Legendary quality after upgrading them to the maximum item level. More information can be found here.

      Patch 7.3.2 adds new Legendary tokens to help keep gameplay on your main rewarding. Legendary tokens will start dropping when you collect ALL Legendary items on your class, in other words, on your main. Collecting ALL Legendary items designated for a single specialization won't suffice. Legendary tokens are BoA, so they can be sent to your alts (even when they are on a different realm). Use them to discover a random Legendary item.

      You can start collecting Wakening Essences right away. You don't need to loot Cursed Shard or accept any quests first. All Legendary items that drop after Antorus opens will have item level 1,000. All crafted Legendary items will be of item level 1,000 by default when Antorus opens. Awoken Titan Essence is used to upgrade a single Legendary item to item level 1,000. You need to collect more Wakening Essences in order to upgrade additional Legendary items. Legendary tokens won't drop unless you collect ALL legendary items on your class. Blizzard mentioned in the latest Q/A that the team is closely monitoring the drop rate of Legendary items. Two legendaries are a standard for raiding, so they may increase the drop rate of the first few Legendary items on a character. At the moment, Blizzard has no plans to increase the Legendary item cap to 3. If you have any questions feel free to leave them in the comments.
