    Single target DPS for hunters.

    Has anyone else noticed single target dps for PVE is way low atm. I assume this is a PVP problem thats effecting PVE. My main is a hunter so this is a real problem for me any feedback would be appreciated.

    You'll probably get alot more responses on the hunter class forum.

    I haven't noticed anything different: Can you elaborate?
    Did you change up a talent/glyph/piece of gear etc..recently?

    I can pull top DPS most of the times as survival. Though I did get beat by a Paladin that could do 60k on bosses... at 88....

    I agree that it seems low. I have struggled this expansion to make my hunter do competitive dps, but it doesn't look like blizzard agrees with us. I'm counting on them bringing mages and locks down a bit in comparison at this point. With the patch coming next week it's all we can really hope for.

    personally i found that a hunter in a 480~ ilvl vs almost any other dps at the same average, the hunters feel behind. not a lot, and it depends on what mechanics/situations are happening. also not sure if this improves as you get closer to 490 and beyond, i've had a hell of a time getting over 485, where as the other dps around me continued to increase and made that gap feel larger.

    playing on my dk (whos at 488) i see a huge difference in capability, my dk is able to hit for 150k+ multiple times in a short window using minor cds where as sv hunter doesn't hit nearly as hard and bm relies on larger cds for the same window. i feel like i struggle on 4th & 5th elegon orb on hunter were as dk i can murder mine, help my neighbor, drop stacks and still get back to hit the boss b4 next wave. i kinda miss a competitive MM spec at times like that.

    I do quite well as a BM hunter on single target fights - but I'm in a 25 man guild where everyone is mostly BIS gear (but the same holds true even as we were progressing). Normally finish at the top for H-Spirit Kings, H-Zor'lok, H-Tslung, H-Feng, H-Elegon....and then if you drop down to non-heroic levels (like when we do guild LFR for VP) I feel like a goddess - I'm hard to beat. I feel good about hunters right now (and yes, I know no one cares about LFR, but my guild is a competitive group).

    Point is, against similarly geared people hunters should be doing fairly well on single target fights - especially on the LFR or normal levels with less mechanics to deal with.

    Seems fine to me...D

    I've never been behind either, since the first raid of the tier in full 463 all the way up, even when i was one of the last in my guild to get an epic weapon (upgraded 463 to 502 will bow) I was always at least competitive.

    Found another log, of my 483 geared alt with a 471 weapon (the kill where i got the gun), armory the rest and you'll see i was competing against people 15-20 ilvls higher than me (Mergroth had 483 same as me)

    I PVE about 5% of the time. Translation, I do quite a bit of PVP on my BM Hunter. And yes, I must say, if you feel as though the single target dmg is lacking that is most likely a result of the single target dmg in PVP being outstanding.

    BM single target is pretty solid.
    Overall no offense, but sounds like a learn2play issue.
