"Some irrelevant target dummy testing disagrees with the math. Therefore the math must be wrong."
Seriously, hasn't dummy testing been thoroughly debunked by this point? Try again when you have some actual basis for questioning the spreadsheet.
I hope this question applies to this toppic, since it is more connected to the spreadsheet.
Can somebody please explain to me why the hunter spreadsheet assumes I will get greater dps in MM spec (about 300dps increase) with Focused Aim, rather than with Improved Arcane shot if I am hitcapped? (Is it connected to steady shot and intensive fights, which means I can suffer from pushback?)
And the second thing is:
is there a sequence of trinket proccing, or why is the sequence of trinkets so special.
(When I have Darkmoon Card: greatness equipped in 1st slot and DC: Death in the second, they hardly even show up in the spreadsheet, if I swap them, they show up and are almost BiS)
(Edit: Just confirmed myself, that total DPS increases rather A LOT if you switch from improved arcane shot 3/3 to focused aim 3/3, leaving the arcane shot blank. My burst dmg (did tests on a heroic training dummy only with Hunter's mark, no other debuffs) is really smaller with arcane shot talented - chimera shot: serpent crits are smaller in damage, serpent sting gets resisted more. Does somebody have an explanation for that? Me and a friend did some theorycrafting and could it be connected to the spell hit cap? With Focused Aim spell hit is capped.)
