    Set bonuses for survival

    For survival if were in mainly mythic gear are we waiting for mythic tier pieces or switching to heroic once we see 2 piece.

    2pc is going to roughly double the # of LnL procs you get in a fight. it will probably be worthwhile to replace 691 mythic warforged with 665 tier to get the bonus

    edit: it appears i grossly overestimated the value of our tier bonuses, lol

    Simming the 2 piece by itself with current mythic gear yielded barely over 800 dps for me, not even factoring in iLvl downgrades. Unless there were any huge flaws in that, you'll mostly want to get the pieces which are good by themselves already. And for those to be noticably better than Mythic HM, they should still be 680, ideally Shoulders/Gloves/Chest to replace bad Highmaul haste gear with Multistrike pieces. Definitely not the Crit/Haste Legs if you have the Crit/MS ones from Ko'ragh already.
    But yeah, if you can get the 2 piece on HC with 2 non-Leg slots, that should definitely be worth the 5-11 ilvl downgrade on 2 slots, especially factoring in the extra MS.

    Item - Hunter T17 Marksmanship 4P Bonus - While Rapid Fire is active, your critical strike damage increases by 3% per second.

    Does this increase drop as soon as rapid fire drops or does it keep up for a period of time once rapid fire is over with?

    I'm pretty sure it would be overpowered as fuck if it didn't drop when rapid fire was over.

    Well I don't expect it to last forever but does anyone know if it has any type of additional duration once rapid fire is over?

    "While Rapid Fire is active" are kind of the key words there...

    If you took the wording completely literally, it would mean that every time you activate rapid fire, your crit damage increases by 45%, permanently.

    I read that is while active, it increases the crit damage by 3% per second. Pretty much what it says exactly. If anyone actually thought that it is permanent after, they are one of those that needs the direction on frozen dinners where it says "open packaging."

    Obviously nobody would seriously think that it means permanently, but the verbage isn't clear whether or not the buff remains for some time at the end, even after it stops 'increasing'.

    Fair enough. But it says "while active" which means that once Rapid Fire is gone, the other buff is gone as well.

    So any idea what the overall DPS bonus is like for SV?

    I read somewhere that pretty much all bonuses (BM, MM, SV) gave around a 2k DPS increase, pretty mediocre compared to other classes.

    I would've thought it would be more. The 4set itself should be about 2k dps increase (so what 5% assuming BiS gear). 15% multistrike buff with 100% uptime. That's 15% like it goes from 35% to 50% I'm assuming?
