Survival Hunter Shot Rotation...

#1PyrotechnicPosted 2/22/2009 10:06:11 PM
Just wondering what a good general attack rotation is for survival hunters. I just respec'd, and I want to make sure I'm doing things right. I'm thinking Hunter's Mark/Send in pet > Serpent Sting > Aimed Shot > Explosive Shot > SS x3 > Explosive Shot, and refreshing Aimed Shot as needed... I looked on google, but all of the shot rotation recs I see are from months, if not years, ago. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Well, assuming you are refreshing your serpent stings, then yes, that's pretty much correct. Then doing an Explosive -> Aimed -> Explosive -> Wait? -> Explosive for LnL.

You're doing it wrong. DO NOT use Aimed Shot. It doesn't fit with our rotation. Get rid of it. And once you do
HM and SS while sending pet in. SSx3, Explosive, repeat. The with LnL explosive,SS,Explosive,SS,Explosive.

The rotation that zombie has is correct, but throwing in an aimed shot rather than a steady can't hurt. According to some spread sheets its actually more dps, but less mana friendly.

Yeah, I know it costs more mana but with the group I raid with I have no problem keeping mana whatsoever, so that's really not a problem.

Yeah thats cool if you want to suck.

Aimed shot or multi shot scale infinitely better than steady shot. The mana cost is not an issue. You are a SV hunter. You don't run out of mana.

Steady Shot x 3 is a pretty dumb rule. It all depends on your haste at the moment. You should ALWAYS use multi/aimed over steady when its up. If explosive comes up you ALWAYS use it over multi/aimed/steady. You need to get good at timing your shots so you are never delaying the use of explosive shot when its cooldown is up.

When LnL procs unless you have heroism or something up a steady shot between the explosives is a dps loss. You are much better off using
Explosve->aimed/multi->explosive->pause->explosive.

Instead of the pause you can refresh your serpent sting if it has run off or hunters mark, etc.

Seriously. Google is easy to use.

I didn't spec aimed shot, but I'll use multi if it's up. I find this spec so much more fun to play than BM though. Takes more thought than just spamming steady shot. Once you start looking at recount you'll find your autoshot does more damage than your steady shot.

GL and have fun.

Taking aimed shot out of the rotation actually upped my DPS quite a bit when I tested it out earlier today. However, outside of raids, I find my mana drains very quickly, so I need to do something about that.
