With the new changes to mutilate (30% less bonus to poisoned targets) i was thinking a fast/fast weapon combo might start to outweigh a fast/slow combo. You picked up an additional 10% haste from slice and dice to make the pie even sweeter. If anyone has done testing on this id like to know, i sadly lack the 2nd webbed death to check myself.
Hey guys, I'm confused on my DPS right now after reading a lot of the material here and some other forums. I was hoping I could get some of you pros to analyze my style and possibly provide me with tips or advice on what I can do to better my DPS. I'm looking all around at these top warriors and see them doing INSANE dps...up in the 9000-12000 dps range on bosses in 25 man NAXX. I really cap around 3500-4200 on regular bosses and 5k-7k on Loatheb and Thaddius. What I try to do is fairly simple, I come in and pop my Death Wish / Recklessness to start doing solid damage get my deep wounds up. I start with BT - WW - HS (rage depending) - BT - WW and bloodsurge slams when they proc. I've heard stories about spamming heroic strike being bad for your dps, I don't know why but it's just something I do, I spam heroic strike when at full rage while trying to BT / WW when CD'S are up. I pop potions of speed at execute range and also integrate heroic throw when it's inbetween a BT / WW cd. I simply feel gimp when compared to warriors on these forums and I couldn't imagine somehow doing double the damage i'm doing now. My gear is elite, almost full t7.5 with death's bite in the main hand and claymore of ancient power in the off hand, surge needle ring, 25 valor ring, darkmoon card: greatness, mirror of truth, etc. I have 4100 ap unbuffed and 38.46% crit. 308 hit rating and 148 expertise. I just feel as though I should be doing more dps and i'm not...hopefully someone can offer me some tips/advice...i'd really appreciate it.
So after playing with the spreadsheets and adding in the 3.0.9 changes, it appears that IP/IP using evisc is now the optimal way to go for me assuming a hunter is putting up poisons. Am I right in thinking this?
