Hey there everyone, I have been playing Hunter since BC around Gruuls Lair and have loved my class...Until latley

Im not sure what I'm doing wrong (if anything) I can't compete with the other dps in my guild and am not enjoying playing my hunter for the first time in years.

Armory:http://us.battle.net/wow/en/character/stormreaver/Chimera/advanced

Logs:http://www.worldoflogs.com/guilds/105255/

My rotation is the exact same as Icy Veins descirbes along with my cooldown priorities.

If there is anything else I need to post let me know and I shall do so...

Thank you in advance for the help and advice, I don't want to give up on my hunter and swap to my Lock but unless something changes that is what is bound to happen, DONT LET THIS HAPPEN FELLOW HUNTERS!

Hey there :)

I've looked at your character, and your set-up seems mostly good. You're quite a bit over the Hit cap, though, so there are still ways to improve things a bit. I recommend using http://www.askmrrobot.com/wow/gear/usa/stormreaver/chimera and clicking on Optimize, this will show you what to do. Yes, in your current case it will put you under the Expertise cap slightly, but this is a DPS increase. If you don't like being under-capped, you can click on Options and choose to Force Hit and Expertise caps (last option there).

Looking at your logs, the two most glaring things I've noticed are low uptime of abilities and low overall active time. I looked at your fights against The Stone Guard and Will of the Emperor specifically, and in both cases, your uptime on Serpent Sting was much lower than it should be. There's no excuse for having less than 90% (and in fact, you should probably have 98% and up). Secondly, your uptime on Black Arrow is also lower than it should be. By my calculations, on your Stone Guard kill, you actually missed out on a full minute of possible Black Arrow uptime, which is pretty huge.

Secondly, on The Stone Guard, you had 80% active time. Comparing that to other Survival Hunters on the same fight, they had 99% and up.

The two issues are connected. I don't know what is happening exactly in your case (whether you are lagging a lot or your computer is slow, or what), but it appears that you spend a good chunk of the fight no doing anything. Again, without seeing video footage or so, I can't tell much, but you should always be casting a spell, whether it be Cobra Shot, or dumping excess focus, and you should always keep basically perfect Serpent Sting uptime. Cobra Shot refreshes it so there's really very little reason for it to ever fall off, and having 60% uptime is going to affect your DPS a lot.

Oh also, I saw you only used Kill Shot 3 times on The Stone Guard, when you should have time to use it a lot more than that :)

I hope this helps somewhat, and if you have other questions, feel free to ask.

Thanks for the response!

In regards to uptime last night I was working with around 2k latency and dcing in between fights.

I'm wondering if you can take a look at some logs from previous nights where I was in BM spec to see if there are any glaring issues.

I feel like when comparing my logs to another ranking hunter, the other hunters kill command damage far exceeds mine, but that I feel isn't the only issue.

Thanks again

I'm sorry, but could you point me to some specific logs? I can't actually find you as BM anywhere :)

Tip 1: Raid in Beast Mastery spec.

Tip 2: Hit and Expertise to 7.50% each. Anything over this is overkill and is precious numbers that could be reforged to mastery or crit.

Tip 3: Bring your haste down. Too much haste becomes wasteful as well. Assuming maximum uptime on Dire Beast (should be cast as soon as off CD) focus regen shoudn't be a huge issue.

Tip 4: If Agility is an available enchant for that item slot DO NOT enchant anything else. Especially haste...

Tip 5: Unless the socket bonus is more Agility than gemming would get you, ALWAYS gem Agility.

Tip 6: Have I told you how much to not worry about haste yet?

      About Us
      Skunkworks is a guild for players who can not or do not want to commit to the time-intensive raid schedules of traditional "hardcore" guilds.
      However, we still maintain a high caliber player environment and make an efficient use of our raiding time.
      We raid Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7:00 - 11:00 PST, just 8 hours a week and never more.
       
      We are very protective of our guild environment and selective in recruitment. We are looking for solid players mechanically as well as intellectually.
      We all get paid to deal with idiots, why should we pay to spend our leisure time with them as well?
       
      Skunkworks has been around for multiple expansions and has historically always been at the top of the 2-night raiding guild scene.

      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, PUBG, 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 battletag: Vims#21684

      I am following the rotation given in the class page on here. My parses are terrible for my ilvl and I don't understand what i am doing wrong and why my dps isn't higher. i havent been using firestarter because i feel like the boss is only above 90% for 5 seconds. Been using RoP for most fights because i have T21 4p.

      Hiya!
      Can someone tell me what i'm doing wrong with my frostmage, since it feels like I'm underperforming compared to other guys with the same ilvl.
      https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/pMdCBwHG6mQb712z This is a normal pug run I did yesterday.
      https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-gb/character/draenor/blastgasm link to my armory.
       
      Edit: Will add a bit more info now since I was in a hurry when i wrote this.
       
      I know i dont have the optimal legendaries. Only got 2 to drop on my mage. The gloves and the waist. During this normal run i probably had the wrong talent setup for some fights (arctic gale on tichondrius etc.). The question is, what can i improve? Do i need to get Better legendaries or is My rotation slightly off?
