Last Point for a MM Hunter

VOTES

2

I have an unused talent point and am looking for advice on how to use it. I am specced MM, am not ArP capped, but have enough ArP to warrant dropping arcane shot from my priority rotation. I am also hit capped and no longer need one point in FA. So I am unsure what to do with that one point now. I am toying with putting one point into efficiancy to reduce my viper usage a little. Here is my current build id you are interested:

So what does the community think? I am looking for thoughts and input.

Thanks;

I would say it depends on what you are raiding. If you are raiding 10 mans mostly, you may want to take the efficiency, though it wont be a big difference. If you are running 25 mans with a solid composition, you can probably drop Trueshot Aura and put a couple points in improved hunters mark if you wanted to buff the other hunters in the raid.

I thought about the improved hunters mark route, taking one from rapid recouperation to make 2 in ihm. But I run 10 man content mostly and I am either the only hunter or one of two. We are working on ICC 10 right now. Thanks for the input. Thanks for the input – Hurseytu (Mar 8 2010 2:13 PM)

Thanks for the input. I also considered the IMH route. However I am running 10 man content mostly and am either the only hunter or one of two. I could always take one away from rapid recoupe as well and get to 2 in IMH, but I do not think it will be a net gain for the raid to have me do that. Thanks again. – Hurseytu (Mar 8 2010 2:15 PM)

You may leave the point as it is, in Improved Arcane Shot; Arcane shot is used frequently on high mobility fights (which is almost all of them nowadays :-) ), and the boost to 15-20 Arcane shots per fight, if you manage to sneak them in, would cover the DPS increase from your only other DPS increasing option, Improved Hunter's Mark.

Your other option is to invest in utility - range to get you in fights faster, less lost time and mana when your pet dies or maybe a bit more AoE damage.

Well i guess my initial instinct was correct. Thanks for the input! – Hurseytu (Mar 9 2010 8:38 AM)

I am finding Concussive Barrage very useful. Dazing mobs with Chimera Shot and with Multi Shot can significantly aid with kiting (or even not needing to kite, in some cases).

ICC has a lot of encounters with adds, and slowing things can realy help on Lady Deathwhisper and Saurfang.

Also, Steady Shot does an extra 175 damage against dazed targets; if you do your Stead Shots after a Chimera shot, that is a little extra damage.

Daze effects do not impact raid bosses. You would gain more DPS by having that point in, say, Efficiency than Conc Barrage. – Rilgon Arcsinh (Mar 10 2010 5:26 PM)

I ran your hunter through the spreadsheet. Using your current gear, talent spec, wolf pet, and best raid buffs/debuffs, 1 point in Improved Hunter's Mark is 32 DPS better than Efficiency IF AND ONLY IF no other hunter in your raid has any points in it. Otherwise, Efficiency comes out on top for DPS. All of the other talents do not provide enough substantial DPS to warrant taking them over Improved Hunter's Mark/Efficiency, depending on raid conditions.

Thanks for doing that! – Hurseytu (Mar 11 2010 12:34 PM)
