Best spec for gear! [Help!]

9 posts in this topic

Hi, been lurking for a while and this is my first post, so please tell me if these sort of topics are supposed to be created elsewhere! 

 

From my understanding, Survival is now the best specialization for hunters and a change from Marksmanship to Survival will most likely be made! But I'm unsure if my gear is better suited for Markmanship rather than Survival! Just wanted to check if what I suspect is true before changing enchants and scope, from crit to multistrike! Don't want to spend alot of gold only to realise what I had before was better!

Thanks for taking a look on my post! Sincerly, Onizuka! :>

Best way to find out is to go to http://simulationcraft.org, download the latest release, and simulate your character between the specs.  I don't know how to do all three at the same time, but to do the 2 specs you currently have, Import both the active and inactive profiles and copy/paste one underneath the other.  This will compare them side by side.

You would most likely have way better SV results if you were full Multistrike enchanted/scoped.  But getting SV to even out with MM on pathwerk fights requires some work with dropping haste gear imo.

Thank you for taking your time helping me with this! :D

I tried simulating Survival with Multistrike enchants + scope and found that Survival still lags behind MM by alot! That probably wouldn't have been the case if I didn't have so much haste as I currently have, just as you said! :>

From what I've gathered, the best course of action will be to keep MM as my main spec for now, until I've gotten gear more suited for survival! :)

Also keep in mind that sim is for Pathwerk.  In a fight like Imperator that requires very high movement and low uptime on Sniper Training, SV will close the gap.

Yup, That's for sure! But would you recommend changing all enchants to MS or just switching scope to the MS one?

I'm new to simcraft so I'm not really sure how to sim different enchants without actually doing them. But with how the new stat weights are looking it's possible that full MS and scope would be better for you in both specs. If anyone with better simcraft knowlege could chime in that would be nice.

I have a post explaining exact issue here.

      All applications will be reviewed and considered however if you are playing a class/spec combination we need then your chances of joining will be higher.
      A little bit of info about us:
      We are a group of friends and serious raiders on EU Twisting Nether looking to recruit skilled like-minded players into our roster for Mythic Legion raids and onwards. We will offer a sociable and fun raiding environment while maintaining a strong desire for progression. Our Discord is very active and we encourage all members to chat and play together not only for raids. The guild formed late March 2016 and fully cleared 13/13 Mythic Hellfire Citadel pre nerf shortly after. We've since been improving our world ranking every tier.
      We currently raid 3 days per week on Mythic: Wednesday, Sunday and Tuesday 19:15-22:15 server time. While it is not a lot we try to make the most out of our time. We run optional heroic/normal/alt/previous tier raids during off days in which raiders are welcome to come to. Our members also play other games outside raid times together where anyone is welcome to join(LoL, Dota, HotS, Overwatch etc.).
      Our loot system for Mythic is RC Loot Council.
      What we expect from you:
      - We are a raiding guild with only a 9 hour per week schedule so you are expected to attend and be ON TIME! However we understand things can come up sometimes but please let us know.
      - Be able to speak and understand the English language and not be afraid to communicate with other members during raids.
      - Actively doing dungeons/world quests to improve your gear and artifact weapon.
      - Have a strong understanding of the current raid tier and be able to play your class to it's potential.
      - Always come to raids prepared(i.e. bringing food and potions, etc).
      - Come fully gemmed and enchanted with the correct stats for your class and spec.
      - Access to Discord and a working microphone.
      - Have a computer that can handle 20 man raiding and a good, stable internet connection.
      - Exorsus Raid Tools, Weakauras2 and RC Loot Council addons installed. We may ask you to install others.

      If you have any further questions please contact us at battletags: Vims#21684 Azkey#21565

      I think simcraft doesn't have appropriate preset for qapla and aspect of beast talent.
      how can i find the preset for qapla and aspect of beast talent??
       
      (I don't know exact word for preset.  I mean sth like this
      # Executed before combat begins. Accepts non-harmful actions only.
      actions.precombat=flask
      actions.precombat+=/augmentation,type=defiled
      actions.precombat+=/food
      actions.precombat+=/summon_pet
      # Snapshot raid buffed stats before combat begins and pre-potting is done.
      actions.precombat+=/snapshot_stats
      actions.precombat+=/potion
       
      # Executed every time the actor is available.

      summon_pet=cat
      this was in mmo but i don't think this works appropriate cause when i used this DPS dropped about 20k.
      but when i used aspect of beast in-game DPS difference was not that much)

      This is my current pawn string from sims:
      Agility=21.87, CritRating=18.49, HasteRating=24.16, MasteryRating=22.94, Versatility=17.33
      Is anyone else getting haste over mastery and agi? I recently got the Mantle (FINALLY!), so not sure if that is affecting anything. I know crit used to be important for Mantle, so I am not sure why it would be the culprit here. I even tested swapping out my enchants to haste and it did provide a slight boost while maintaining the same scaling. Mastery is at 9300, Crit at 9300 and Haste at 8000 (Roughly), so I definitely dont feel I have enough mastery to start warranting haste over it and agi.
      Just wondering if anyone else is seeing this too?
      I do have the current sim build, so no issues there.
