Re: Classes/Specs You're Terrible At

Cobra shotting isn't the issue, it's mainly reacting to LnL properly. Not many unexpected procs in MM, other than the occasional instant Aimed Shot. And, as you said, "staring at the focus bar"... with MM, I pretty much know what my focus is instinctively; I can do (chimera - 2x SS - ArcS - 2x SS - chimera) as my "maintenance rotation", and if I get a haste proc (or using rapid fire, obviously) I pay more attention to my focus bar to fit aimed shots in. Occasionally I'll end up with a bit more focus then normal, so a couple of extra arcane shots when needed. When I've tried SV, I end up watching my focus bar so much I end up losing situational awareness. "Hunter, don't stand in the bad. Purple shadow goo = ouch." I don't doubt that with more practice I could get to be at least passable with SV, there just isn't any need for it right now with my guild situation.

I rarely play my hunter, but last night during LFR i was 3rd in dps on ultraxion as Survival. It is hands down the easiest spec next to combat rogue. I was 3rd dps btw wielding a fishing pole on accident. What is hard about the LNL procs? It glows yellow, you hit it once, hit arcane shot once, then hit it again. Thats it...

To be fair, I highly doubt Cael is saying, "zomg I can't break 20k as survival". He probably just can't squeeze out the dmg/dps to make in the same ball park as he does MM. There is good dps... and then there is masterful dps. When I play my wife's Surv Hunter, I can crank out up to 38k dps... she can do that while feeding our baby, clicking and mouse moving. Unfettered, she pulls 44k. Btw, I'm the one who researched and explained to her the shot priority, stat priority, gems/enchants... she just does it better than I do.
