yeah, I have heroic vial as my other trinket. Right now I'm rocking heroic vial/normal Wrath, and swapping out vial for Sigil on H-Spine.
I was wondering, what do you guys make of this:
I've been doing my LnL rotation like this:
ES - ES - AS - ES when focus is high enough
ES - ES - CS - ES when focus isnt high enough
I'm not convinced I should change it, seems to be working quite ok doing it like I describe above.
Question: once the new patch hits and we don't have AS consuming LnL procs, could I also do this when high on focus (to prevent capping e.g.):
ES - AS - ES - ES
Edit: I'm not looking for a "Frostheim sucks, he's a noob" discussion, which have appeared in the past when referring to his website. I'm genuinely interested if his theory would indeed work.

After checking everything, I found a diffirence in the use of Glyph of Serpent Sting by the other hunter in our raid vs me using Glyph of Arcane shot.
On sunday we tried it an entire day where my damage was 10% lower. This was the raid I noticed the damage diffirence. worldoflogs. com/reports/4py150did15yi77h/
On tuesday after figuring out it was probably related to the Glyphs, both of us started changing some around which let to sometimes me having the actual higher damage and sometimes him. Currently seems to be that the one person using SrS glyph would be higher then the person using Arcane Shot. The diffirence was with the exact same numbers, only sometimes he would have the lower and I would have the higher and sometimes other way around. The numbers I used were the average explosive shots crits, which hover around 25.5k for the lower person and 27.5k for the higher. But most abilities would have the damage diffirence. worldoflogs. com/reports/iim5qu1r9qcwq41v/
So I made a ticket and after talking to a GM and explaining the entire situation, he's going to send the report he made of to higher powers and we'll see what happens then. SS to entire conversation I had with the GM: imageshack. us/f/818/46193253.jpg/

this was using 10mill dmg as said above as the sample size, against a raiding dummy in OG using recount to monitor it.. it might just be WoL doing something odd or it might be the bosses in dragon soul it has some effect on
Yes it was only on Ultraxion that I noticed the damage diffirence, havent been able to see it anywhere else, also I'm pretty sure it is only affected if there are 2 hunters in the raid at the time.
Serpent sting applies 2 auras. The damage, and the % damage modifier. It's entirely possible that only one of you will get the Noxious Stings 10% damage effect. Try and test based on who applied it first if possible.
I was originally thinking the same thing. I was gonna test that after testing it with the glyph. The first try I tried it with Glyph of SrS, my damage jumped up to what his used to be and he dropped down to my level. Which is different from what the entire sunday raid was where I never changed anything about the glyphs.
Used Glyph of Arcane Shot myself on sunday, other hunter used Glyph of SrS, like that he did most damage.
On tuesday I asked him to use Arcane Shot, which kept me lower. Then on the second try I tried SrS while he still used Arcane Shot, which uped my damage to what his was and his to what mine used to be. After that we basicly switched around trying to get us both to get the high damage which didnt work.
This guide is awesome. Made me switch from MM to surv, read through the entire guide a few time,s now I'm topping almost every DPS chart I'm on :-)
bong hits for jesus. golf wang
i wanna say it's the 10% damage bonus from noxious stings only benefiting one hunter as ou rlast attempts on ultraxion the other hunter was mm for the first few attempts and i was pulling 42k or so and when he swapped to sv keep in mind i was the one throwing up hunters mark so his srs would be up first i noticed i couldnt pull the same numbers i was when he was MM i dropped to about 39-40k by about the 10% mark where i was consistantly doing 42.
I saw a hunter in lfr lead in damage without using explosive shot once. Does the four set make it so spamming arcane shot instead of using explosive optimal?
