Mists of Pandaria Bucket List

Lots of people are making “Bucket Lists” of things they want to accomplish before the next expansion. I’ve had one going for a while, but I never officially posted it. Maybe if I actually write these goals down, I’ll be more likely to get them done!

Raiding

  • Heroic: Madness of Deathwing
  • Glory of the Dragon Soul Raider
  • Full best in slot gear on Zan (2 pieces to go)
  • I Can’t Hear You Over the Sound of How Awesome I Am (Sinestra immortal achievement)

Hunter 101: Survival Rotation

Something I am often asked is “What is your rotation for SV/MM/BM?”

The long and the short of it is… there is no rotation for any of these specs. It’s all about shot priority. For SV and BM, you’re going to be managing cooldowns and with MM it’s all about being ready for your next Chimera.

As of patch 4.3 Survival is the top DPS spec for most fights in Dragon Soul, so I’ll start there and go in order of “best” to “worst” spec DPS-wise.

This is part one of a three-part guide.

[Part 2: BM guide] [Part 3: MM guide]

Please keep in mind each fight is different and there may be situations in which you would intentionally delay the use of a specific shot or cooldown to wait for a more optimal time in the fight to use it. A good example of this would be a BM hunter on Spine of Deathwing saving Bestial Wrath for the tendon burn phase, rather than popping BW on cooldown.

Survival Shot Priority

  • Kill Shot
  • Explosive Shot
  • Black Arrow / Explosive Trap for melee range or AOE
  • Arcane Shot
  • Serpent Sting
  • Cobra Shot

I’m back!

Sorry for the lack of posts the past few months… some RL stuff came up and I didn’t have much time for anything except real life and playing. No time for blogging! :(

But I’m back and I’m ready to blog again! I’m sure all three of my readers are ecstatic. ;)

And just for fun, here’s a picture of my hunter pretending to be a shaman:
