First of all i registered to this website as soon as i knew about it which was yesterday and i couldnt go over all the 100+ pages of hunters discussion threads so i thought i will make this post so u can comment, help, or redirect me to whatever will help me. I saw cheek'ys spreadsheet excel sheet but i didn't really know how to use it. I will post the questions that i really want to know their answers after an introduction paragraph about my character so plz read it carefully.
As u might notice from the title i am suffering from 500-1k ms (high latency) and around 5-15fps from the first day i started world of warcraft. I've been playing since 2 years. I'm a survival specced hunter atm with 7/20/34 spec, i have DST and 4+ pieces of T6 and all of my other pieces are Bt + MH items. I'm using the /cast/cast macro including the kill command and lightning breath of my serpent in the macro. I usually spam this macro while raiding especially on boss fights and i noticed the clippings of autoshots which i think is resulting from my high latency and fps issues and maybe a bit from the macro design. I was doing fine in all the raids MH,BT,and 1st boss in sunwell (kalegos) knowing that my dps i was doing isnt that good since i can do much much more with my current gear but since my latency was very high i cant really do anything about it unless i get a much better connection and a new graphic card for imporving my fps.
However the annoying part started now, my guild is currently at brutallus and i'm the only survival hunter in the guild and they always take me to raids (Was and still a very core/active member since the beginning + im a very good boost for the melee dpsers). The max dps i ever reached on all the brutallus tries we did was 1800dps with my current 500-1k latency and 5-15 fps and usually 1600dps on all other tries while i was in a group of main tank 1 (prot warrior), main tank 2 (feral druid), and 2 resto druids which isnt really interesting for me. Now i know a hunter with my gear must be making an easy 2k+ dps. This is the armory link of my current gear so u can check it out The World of Warcraft Armory before answering my questions u might notice that my spec is 0/20/41 but that was just for yesterday where i tried to check if i can increase my dps on brutallus with it but my spec is usually 7/20/34 and don't worry about my 80 hit rating cause i have the neck from supremus (Choker of endless nightmares) which caps my hit rating when i use it. The questions i am seeking to get answered if possible are:
1. Is the macro i am using the correct one for my current auto shot speed/spec knowing that it automatically gets me to 1:1 shot rotation when i get hasted and gets back to 2:1 when im not hasted. Do you also suggest to use manual weaving since i have high latency instead of the macro cause it will just result in more and much more clippings?
2. Should i keep using my current spec with DST or?
3. Is it even possible to do more dps than 1600-1800 with my brutallus group setup and my current latency/fps issues :p?
4. do u think i must bind my macro to the mouse wheel or a keyboard cursor for better results or it doesnt matter?
Thankyou all for reading my case and i hope to hear from you some helpful/constructive comments soon.

Reason: changing the link
On an equally geared warrior and rogue what class would benefit more from a warglave. After reading this post I thought about it and if a well geared warrior has no problem burning his rage then it doesn't seem like the dps on a warglave would benefit him half as much as it would for a rogue. First time posting, and any input would help.
Thanks allot for all the suggestions guys , I will try these out !!
And as for Relwin sending me a infraction for signing my post , well if you have a problem signing yours that is fine but you do not delegate whether I sign mine sir and if that is a problem then just remove my membership and my e-mail from your forum .
PS - it is my choice if I wish to sign my post Relwin , not yours , I am not worried about using my name to sign a post and never will be , if someone wants me then I urge him to come and get me but better know the cat before you grab his tail huh .
i'm the only dps war for my guild so i go with slam ms.
im currently hit capped with 2 t6 (gloves and shoulders) and the rest are BT and MH stuff with the exception of the badge bow.
now i've had t6 helm in bag for some time now (and i keep it in there 'cause i wont be hit capped otherwise), and should have chest soon. but if i don helm and chest for the 4 pc bonus, i'll have a huge ass dent in my hit (brings me to like 100ish or so).
question is is that even worth it? 'cause it means i'll have to use hit food and hit gems too.
