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.

      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.

      i just want to check before i do anything. that if i do my race change. will i still keep all the pets i had before the change?

      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
