@HikashuriA skilled hunter isn't subpar, we are right behind the big casters but still in front of the lesser ones (shamans) and all the melee.
I have a feeling you call them subpar because you either have subpar hunters in your raid or you are subpar yourself.
Here is a WoL from your guild with you in it from last week:
Horridon: 7th, pet 100% uptime on Horridon is the only reason you were in top 10
Durmu: you sat
Dark Aniums: you sat
20 Leishen attempts your average spot was 18. The 3 longest attempts you were 18,18,16
I am no expert but those numbers sure look well below sub par to me...
I would love to see some logs where your at the top, and what does near mean? I mean 12th is near the top in a 25 man cause its closer to the top than the bottom. I am not disputing your word sir but the numbers I have seen show a very different story.I'm often at or near the top in my guild and we ranked us 14th this tier.
