Your profile is incomplete. You might notice that when you complete it, it has not only a guild tag, but also a link to your Armory. Accordingly, unless you're posting about an alt, you really don't need to link to your Armory directly.
Your post also came extremely close to the "hold my hand and feed me a spec" line. Try to contribute a little more to the discussion, or at least show that you understand the difference between the specs before posting. In other words, ask specific questions, not general ones.
Long time reader with a survival spec question on theory vs. practice.
The two main raiding specs for SV off the front page of the thread are:
Both using glyphs of Steady Shot, Serpent Sting and Aspect of the Hawk.
Currently I am using 00-19-52 , found it here on EJ in the weeks leading up to 3.0.8 being released, and I wish I could remember who linked it originally, would like to give them credit for it. Any way, with this spec I am using glyphs of Stead Shot, Serpent Sting and Hunter's Mark.
Here is my current armory and yes still need to enchant anarchy - Komarm
Currently with the spreadsheet, I'm am showing that my solo unbuffed dps with a cat would be 2664.48, 2289.13 from me, 375.35 from the cat.
If I went to the 1/18/52 spec and glyphs the numbers would come out as 2621.57 total, 2293.85 and 327.71
6/14/51 would yield 2617.46, 2286.98 and 330.48
Of the 2 standard specs, 1/18/52 would be the least change, but it would be a 42.91 DPS loss, but a person DPS increase of 4.72, so in fights that are pet unfriendly, I would in theory come out slightly ahead, but not much.
6/14/51 would be a 47.02 DPS loss with personal dropped by 2.215, not much, but combined with the pet loss of 44.87, I'm not seeing lure of the spec.
What I am checking to see if there is a real difference between what I am running and the 1/18/52 and 6/14/51 specs and that the theory behind the spreadsheet is off, ie in practice the 1/18/52 and 6/14/51 specs do provide more damage in game and this is not reflected in the spreadsheet. Or, are the 3 specs so close both on paper and in execution, that all 3 are on par with each other and that deciding which one to use comes down to play style and preference.
