    Lock and Load vs Kill Shot

    Is a lock and load proc always better to use than kill shots or is there a number of consecutive explosive shots before which kill shot is better to use?

    Just weave it into your LnL procs honestly, should be just fine doing that.

    Weave it in, don't weave it in, honestly doesn't matter much. I usually tend to just spam explosive shot if I have trinket up though.

    I usually use kill shot first. The buff of lock and load last a bit, and kill shot hits very hard.

    Hey you never know sometimes your arm might spaz out and the KS hits the boss in the eye or something idk

    It doesn't matter what you do.

    I personally only weave it between explosives on bosses like Immer where you are guaranteed to have to wait another gcd to get the second kill shot off and will need to weave another ability in regardless.

    I blam all of my Explosive Shots first and get it back on cooldown as fast as I can, then I use my two Kill Shots after that.

    Yeah this is what I do now but if I have a lock and load proc rolling when the boss goes to 20% I keep going with it and delay kill shot. I was wondering what other hunters do.

    Chance at 2 back to back 400k+ crits isn't bad damage.

    800k damage for a 2 second "cast time" plus travel time is under 400k DPS - and that requires both of them to crit.

    Trying to rationalize what order you put them in using reasoning such as their cooldowns, proc durations or how much damage one happens to do at some random point in a fight is stupid and pretty much proves your entire knowledge of your class is based on anecdotal crap. The reality is that as it doesn't matter what order you do them in and no one can prove that either way is correct.

    I can't tell if you're trolling or just an asshole trying to sound smart.

    Seriously KS is the weakest Execute in game since each PvE Spec has to debate whether to cast it or not. Oh well at least the Developers promised a buff to the 2nd KS delay in WoD.
    Capitalism, Ho!

    One explosive shot does more damage than one kill shot on average. If both are free, then the obvious answer is to use Explosive shot. If LnL is not up, the zero cost + CD of kill shot makes it take priority over the cost + potential reset of ES.

    Disc priests have no say on hunter matters.
