This isn't the kind of post that is acceptable in the DPS analysis thread or in any thread here for that matter. Folks are not here to customize advise for you on how to do more DPS. If you have logs and specific questions we welcome that. Don't link your armory it is already in the user profile to the left of your post.
I have been scouring various sites looking for more insight into my hunter. I am consistently lower on dps than other hunters in my guild, even though I have better gear. In fact, last night, while fighting Ultraxion (25-man, non-lfr), I was ranking about 17th, below our tank.
I compared myself to the other hunters and found that just about everyone uses MM, while I have been using SV. The tank, also our raid leader, warned that I would be booted from raids unless I brought my dps up. It's frustrating and aggravating, knowing that I have the gear to produce the needed dps, but appear impotent to do so.
Today, I have spent several HOURS going over my spec and my shot rotations, seeing if there is something I've been missing. All the web sites, as well as other hunters, say I'm doing it right, but my dps isn't coming up. Therefore, I changed my alt spec to MM and compared the two to see if I could bring my dps up.
I have been very confused in figuring out the best shot rotation for MM. I have read several posts on this site, as well as from a few other sites. There is a lot of conflicting information about what is best. Some say to use the non-proc Aimed Shot as much as possible as a focus dump, while others say only use it when it procs.
As a result, I am uncertain as to what I should do. I've tried both specs numerous times today (against the Raider's Training Dummy) and have found that I get just slightly lower dps in SV than I do in MM (perhaps 1.5k). I ran both specs through the dps analyzer in this thread and found that it suggests that SV should be about 1.5k HIGHER than MM. Either way, my dps is very closely matching the predicted dps.
So how do I explain that the other MM hunters are pulling 4-6k more dps than me? I'm terribly confused. If anyone has any suggestions, I'm open to it. I need help desperately.
Here's a link to my hunter in the Armory: Lonesome of Bonechewer. Please note that I have nearly 17k AP, 1696 haste (28.31% SV, 16.64% MM), 29.98% crit, 12.22 mastery. I have 3 pieces of t13 gear, and an ilvl of 383.
