41/20/0 vs 31/30/0 vs 41/20/0 dps

The following post is pasted from a bookmark I had on my pc to the hunter forums at:

but for some reason I couldn’t get type this out on my mac, and was too lazy to copy it across.  I’m mainly posting it for my own reference as he links some builds close to the ‘cookie-cutter’ build on the 3 main builds.  Thanks to Balogna in the guild Hordecore on the Blackwing Lair server.

Dps done on Dr Boom. Done in intervals of 50 000 damage. On all tests, using an “arcane instead of steady” rotation. Steady -> auto -> arcane -> auto -> steady. Pet DPS is not being used, and Multishot is not being used due to Multiple mobs, multishot damage would skyrocket.

Note: that I’m not using Multishot, which favours a MM build slightly ( or heavily, for those who believe we have infinite mana pools)

Beastmastery spec 41/20/0 – Valanos’ Longbow – 1635 RAP – 19.5% crit
Build: http://www.worldofwarcraft.com/info/classes/hunter/talents.html?5120020052501215310510505201205000000000000000000000000000000000
Note: Did not use TBW
-used Valanos’ longbow because speed is ideal for BM hunters
-remember that the pet is not being used here. Therefore, I’m not getting any Focus inspiration buff which would up my dps.

1. 51325 damage – 21.6% crit – 600.5 dps
2. 53181 damage – 18.0% crit – 580.0 dps

5. 50801 damage – 15.6% crit – 575.0 dps ( used The Beast Within for this test)

Average DPS is Approx 585 dps. This is hunter only. How can people say that BM is not a raiding build?

Now people may wonder why im posting these numbers. I have a few reasons.

1. Hunter dps doesn’t suck. yes, im sitting there in a perfect, non interrupted environment. But, i’m self buffed. Add in MOTW, BOK or BOM, agility pot, RAP food, Fel strength elixir, sunders, Pet DPS then hunter dps goes up a lot.

2. 31/30 build viablity. A lot of hunters have been asking if it’s a good build. In my opinion, it’s an amazing build. The only thing i lack, is my silencing shot 😦 It’s a very minor dps increase to go marks (remember, compare the Long’horon stats, not the long’horon and the Skyfire stats in 31/30 and MM) and you gain the trap abilities, surefooted. What i lose, and miss is Imp AOTH and focus fire.

3. A little information about bow speeds. Most hunters should know by know, that an autoshot takes .5 seconds to fire after a steady shot. So, mathematically you would like a 2.00 bow speed. Skyfire goes down to 2.09, giving a little bit of error.

4. this is dps without my pet. A well managed pet adds a good 100 dps at least.

The reason i dislike Skyfire, is because with AOTH it’s very very hard to take your steady shots w/o delaying autoshot. I thought, i should use Long’horon because the delay in autoshot gimps me. I was wrong, the dps increase in Skyfire and the Speed benefit outweighs the fact that i may be losing some autoshot timing.

Overall Comparison

MM: Lon’horon – 560dps
MM: Skyfire – 600dps

BM: Volanos’ – 585 dps

Hybrid: Long’horon – 550 dps

Survival: Long’horon – 530 dps
Suvival: Skyfire – 565 dps

Hopes this helps guys.
