    Is our hunter doing anything wrong?

    Our Hunter's DPS has been much lower than other group members. I am wondering if someone is able to look through our logs and have a look to see if she is doing anything wrong in terms of spell usage. She is playing BM but using a dragonhawk pet for the 8% spell damage buff. I'm unsure if that would effect DPS much because it's not a ferocity pet.

    All the pets are ferocity now if you so desire.... You have 3 specs to choose from on each pet. Its new in mop.

    That's good to know, my MoP Hunter info isn't up to date. We are also missing the 4% Physical Damage debuff with our group setup which is also a factor here.

    Her damage seems oddly linear in some fights. Very uncommon for hunter especially BM. My guess is, that she either is holding back the long cooldowns or not using them right.

    As a BM hunter now, its very very important to use all of your cooldowns - there's a lot of them, in fact too much of them imho.

    It's realy hard to see just by the logs if the cooldowns are being used to the max realy.

    If this is accurate: http://us.battle.net/wow/en/character/khazgoroth/Chargrilled/advanced Then I see a few small gearing problems. No meta gem, no bracer enchant, reforging away from crit to gain expertise, leg gem should probably just be a +agi gem. Also that Direbrew trinket is awful, if Char needs hit and expertise maybe he should look at getting the engineering trinket and gemming it with +600 hit/expertise/crit.

    Aside from that, I have a hard time wading through WOL stuff for hunters (seriously where do I find pet info?) but it seems like auto-shot shouldn't be your highest DPSing ability even discounting kill command. If Char is having a hard time with BM, maybe he should try his offspec of survival. Personally I saw a huge DPS increase going to survival over BM, but your results may vary.

    Looking at parses for Feng:

    Comparebot of Pet: http://raidbots.com/comparebot/507c7...90012d8#damage
    Comparebot of Hunter: http://raidbots.com/comparebot/507c7...48001040#buffs

    Look at each comparebot. You can count how many times critical abilities were used (eg Kill Command) over the duration of the fight, then compare to ideal. KC has a 6 sec CD and as primary nuke of BM, should be used on cool down (or 10 times a minute). In 7 minute fight, was used 51 times; not great. Another example: Bestial Wrath is on a 1 min CD. With 2 readiness used during a 5 min fight, that adds 2 more. So, should have been used 9 times. Was used 8 times (not terrible). Glaive Toss has a 15 sec CD and should be used roughly on CD, although not ahead in priority over KC. Roughly 4 casts per minute, with 2 extra casts due to 2x readiness, should have been used about 30 times. Each cast causes 4 strikes (one per each glaive both in and out), so a total of 120 strikes target. Actual number of hits was 43 (22 for 1 glaive, 21 for the other (this is way low). Can do similiar analysis for Lynx Rush and Dire Beast to see how those key abilities are being used. Can also compare to other hunter parses to see how your hunter is doing in terms of shot rates of arcane and cobra shot versus other parses and uptimes of serpent sting (although this is a lot less important that it used to be).

    Hope this helps you in your analysis...

    Agreed with the lack of ease. Basically, have to expand the hunter and see damage done by pets. There is damage by primary pet, damage by BEAST (which is Dire Beast), and damage by other pets (or unknown) during Stampede. Unfortunately, have to look at each one of these to guage full picture of BM huntering. SV easier a bit since a primary ability is not hidden in pet info as KC is with BM hunters...
