Focus starved survival

Hey guys,

I'm fairly new to the hunter spec in wow. But i'm liking the way it plays.

First i was a mm hunter, but switched over to sv, because its more fun to play and im liking the dps.

My gear is still more specced for mm hunter (also due the nature of hm raid), so its not all optimized.

To get to the point, i worry about my focus managing and was wondering how often do u need to cast cobra shot to regain focus? Because i always try to prioritize my abilities crrectly, but its making me focus starved to often, and that is a dps loss.

I want to know how you guys manage your focus to not get starved or capped...

Try using Stampede instead of Crows.  Don't use arcane shot unless you have a thrill proc, you need to apply serpent sting, or you are close to focus capping while BA/ES/GT/Barrage are on CD.  Try using Glaive Toss instead of Barrage and if you are using Barrage, understand that it's situational and it does not ALWAYS have to be off cd like BA/ES do.

Another thing to try is to use Focusing Shot instead of Lone Wolf.  I have found that I'm a lot less focus starved using FS while I am with LW.  FS does take a bit of getting used to, since it can't be cast while moving, but it resolves the issue of focus starvation.

1.  No

2.  When using SF/FS you will have a pet out.  SF/FS will make you less mobile but you will get larger focus gains.

      Does anyone have issue where a ton of versatility gear is dropping?
      In the effort to increase my item level, so I can do heroics (i know I'm late to the game), all the higher level gear that drops has versatility, do BM hunters need versatility now or is this just bad luck?

      Ey i want to create a new hunter character, and my doubt its, orc or maghar? I know this is not very importante because if u dont do high end is not terrible noticeable. In one hand we have the orc passive ( 5% more pet damage + ap) and in the other hand we have ( more health and ap ) .
      I think orc its better ¿ what do u think ?
      Sorry for my english im starting to learn english and i thought it was a good idea post here :D
