I am still puzzled with 3:2, 1:1 and sweet spot of the ranged weapon speed.
You see I have got parrot on the stick 2.80 base (aka badge xbow) and archimondes striker 3.00 base speed weapons.
I have 37 haste rating (2.35% @ L70), which brings xbow down to 1.98 and striker down to 2.12 speed.
Armory just in case (this is an alt)
The World of Warcraft Armory
I took them out to dr. boom to test out famous 3:2 macro (goes to 1:1 if there is enough speed).
At 1.98 this xbow shoots out 3:2.
With hawk proc up I get nice 1:1 (iirc 1.72 speed).
At 2.12 macro does 3:2. Seems ok.
With hawk up it pushes me down to 1:1 (iirc 1.85 speed), but still sometimes it fits in 3:2 shot. Is it normal?
Now to the theoretical part.
If I add there BloodLust (Heroism), then I get clipping with either weapon if hawk is up. Correct?
If I add there haste potion, then I get clipping with either weapon if hawk is up. Correct?
If I add there RapidShot, then I get clipping with either weapon if hawk is up. Correct?
By clipping I mean 1:1 auto shot is clipped.
So which weapon would be the one to use then? :/
Live with Striker and have that occasional 3:2. This should yield better dps when additional haste is up (BL, haste pot or rapid fire).
Or still go with badge xbow and use the same macro?
Or always use xbow with 1:1 rotation?
Is 3:2 overrated? I have seen WWS'es of high end hunter shoots 2.1 base speed weapon at 1:1, does +1 additional steady +1 multi and +1 arcane shot over 4 min 30 sec fight (aka Brutallus). If I had 4 set bonus of t6 and hunter ashtongue trinket (missing a little bit of rep and 3 more pieces of the set), then 3:2 would make sense.
I would like some feedback from high end hunters or people who know what to use in this case :-) Or just give input which weapon you would use ;-)
PS! Usually I do not get to use haste pot, because mana is a terrible issue, so I got to use mana pot instead.
Last Naj'entus I pulled off about 1650 dps with xbow (used 3:2 macro for about 40% of the time and the switched to 1:1 macro to conserve mana - ended at exactly at 0 mana when boss died).
Sigh, hope someone can give me a pointer,
