i was doing some test and some sims and AMOC is now under 300 DPS more then LR for me now
Sims wouldn't have the info any faster than somebody reporting that the damage has been changed, and I havn't seen anybody reporting this.
in my gear in a 10 minute FD says is do about 95k DPS, changing from LR to AMoC varies the dps by less then 500, that less then a 1% difference in DPS... hardly seems worth it when LR has no cost.
i just remember after the patch the difference being greater then that.... maybe my gear changed and i got enough mastery as BM to make LR ~= to AMoC... Changing to orc prolly had something to do with it as well... 2% more pet damage is like adding 1200 mastery to BM
Not sure about sims, but in the H Spirit Kings fight this week (close to 10 min fight), I did 3.4 million with Amoc and the other BM hunter did 2.1 million with LR...and he knows how to play (but apparently not how to talent...jk jk)
You know theres no difference in 2 mobs with 4/5 stacks ans 1 mob with 9 stacks?
(Apart from 4% physical dmg debuff and sunder that might be missing)
In fact, having more than one target (not to many though) is exactly the situation where Lynx is good in,
Because od readyness. You can use Lynx, readyness, and as the dots are short of fallying of, cast second Lynx, which keeps the stacks on the mobs and resetting the duration.
(If timed ideall, you can do damage worth nearly 3 lynx rushes instead od 2 whith readyness)
so in reality instead of getting 2 durations of 9 stacks, you get 3 of them. it makes LR if used right on 2 targets superior to both AmOC and blink strike
@tehstool well thats just nit-picking. I just mentioned the debuffs because off completeness, its not that that changed its usage or anything.
But of course you a right, its a bleed these days, thus doesnt gain from armorreduce or physical increase, and theres ne bleed debuff anymore (miss very much as MM!)
I think you can look at my guilds logs from last night and clearly tell LR is FAR FAR FAR behind aMoC.
I was using amoc, other hunter was using LR. Hes 499, I'm 498.
AMOC > Blink Strike > LR - Blink strike is pretty good on elegon heroic though, big crits lol
