Survival Hunter simms


#1

Why do the sims use talents that I don’t have or use skills that should never be used in the rotation for the build, the simms are coming up thousands of dps lower than me just smacking at a raid target dummy without any raid buffs.

Link one of the sims and we can take a look.

Here is one I just did

The wildfire bomb is actually fixed, it was using wildfire infusion before but there is no reason it should be using serpent sting without the talent for it.

I also did my own test with a dps meter, the pet damage which doesn’t change is around 20% total, Mongoose bite is at 72%, then the rest in order I wildfire bomb dot, fathom fall, wildfire bomb laser matrix and gutripper (Which doesn’t really work on a dummy)

Yours shows mongoose bite at 25%, I don’t think it’s calculating mongoose fury properly, plus it’s using serpent sting, I tried to make my own rotation to sue but it was too complicated for me to do in a short amount of time.

I don’t really understand what you are saying. There is no survival build where you wouldn’t use serpent sting. Mongoose Fury is stacking correctly in the simulator.


#5

If you aren’t using the serpent sting talents, using serpent sting if you even have 1 stack of mongoose fury is less damage for the energy than using mongoose bite, mongoose bite when I use a meter tends to be 60-70% of my damage while on your simm it’s barely 1/3rd of that, and there is almost 50% more pet damage, the only thing I can think of is that it’s not applying correctly for it to be that much less damage or it is somehow using the skill a lot less

Looks like you can get a little bit of a dps gain by not refreshing serpent sting with mongoose fury up (i actually used to have the rotation like that, guess I need to change it back). But even then, mongoose bit is around 30% or so of damage. Even on the most extreme of high ranking logs the most I’ve seen is 40% of damage as mongoose bite. If you’re doing 60-70% with mongoose bite only you’re missing something.
