Marksman Hunter Patch 6.2.3 (16/2/'16)

Welcome Guys,

I am Ðarkramz (Ilvl 731), a raider in a social guild called Vanillas-Silvermoon (A Dutch Speaking guild)
I am pulling of 98,6k+ steady dps on a trainingsdummie. With flask, food, rune and Crit buff.
(Do not forget to Pre-pot before each boss fight)

Preview of my Damage

Talents : ? 1 2 3 3 ? 3
Major Glyphs : Chimaera Shot, Disengage, Deterrence
Minor Glyphs : Its up to you!

I used the Marksman guide on icy-veins to create this sequence.
Also I have been trying some macro’s on wowlazymacro’s:
Thanks to Fokka, (The Original) Beef Wellington and most of all Dagobert Duck for a step in the right direction!

If you still want to track your buffs and cooldown with weakauras I’d suggest you to create or find weakauras according to your taste.

In case you will use this macro’s and/ or GnomeSequencer let me know your opinion, and together we can try to tweek this even more.

I’d suggest you that you make a Stopcasting Killshot macro.

Ring Burst

#showtooltip Maalus, the Blood Drinker
/use Maalus, the Blood Drinker

Optimizing gear and enchants.
For optimizing my enchants and stats I use the Program : Simulationcraft
Simulationcraft shows you your optimal dps and shows you the stats weights.

For optimizing my gear I use : Ask Mister Robot (The Add-on and the website)
The site has a option called : Best in Bag and Edit weights.
you must create an account and use the Add-on for the Best in Bag option.
And I use the stat weights from Simulationcraft to get the best results out of it.
You can insert your Stat Weights in the Add-on Pawn to see which items are upgrades for you and how much % you go up on that item.

For Questions add me on Battletag: Darkramz#2160

Cheers and Goodluck,

Hey tim, thanks a lot for the macros! I just wanted to test it, but the macro needs to be in format. For this you can use “code” on the begin and end of the macro. I’m curious how your macro is working… :slight_smile:

I want to test it now, so i will copy it with the right format.For the WA String you need to use a pastebin link.

EDIT: I am not sure if its only my notepad settings, but for me your ‘/ dont work. I changed it into '/

Thank you for your support and hopefully you will pull of as much dps i pull of with this. If you are using Autohotkey, see below.

My autohotkey

{
$1::
Loop 
{
 if not GetKeyState("1", "P") 
 break 
 Send 1 
 sleep 4 
}
return
}
{
$2::
Loop 
{
 if not GetKeyState("2", "P") 
 break 
 Send 2 
 sleep 4 
}
return
}

This is just an example of what i use you can make this for more buttons on your keyboard or mouse.
Keep on holding this keys.

According to the weakaura, you just can tripple click and copy it for the whole link.
And indeed I might think it’s a notepad thing. A friend of mine got my sequence.lua and did not work for him so instead of ’ /we did need to use "/

As Tim mentioned above in his threat. I am deeply appreciated and thanks for effort and good work of everyone and thanks to Tim for this updated Macro. Its amazing work very well; increase 4k+ dps. Once again, thank you Tim and everyone distribution.

Best regards,

Gau

Hey, I’ve rolled hunter before but never Marksman. Is there any way you can provide a small guide for what macro should be used when, why it matters, and some tips (like “the reason why I keep stampede off the macro is ____” although I know perfectly why you did; just an example)? I only ask because this seems like a well fleshed-out macro that I intend to try out.

Hey Micah,

Ofcouse I am willing to provide you some basic information about the macro use.

MmSinglePre = Key 1, You spam it when boss/ target is underneath 80% health.
MmSingleThrill = Key 2, You spam it when the boss/target is above 80% health, on Thrill of the Hunt and when you use Rapid Fire. ((above 80% health and on Rapid Fire, Carefull aim is activated --> Increasing your crit chance by 50%) --> Aimed Shot and Chimeara is main prio)
MmMultiRot = Key 3, You can spam it whenever (in my eyes) there are more then 8 adds)

Powershot -> Dealing dmg to each target it passes and knocks them back. Only the stronger adds will not be knocked back.
Stampede -> Proven to be the best damage ability (Better then A murder of Crows) Pop this on a heroism, Rapid Fire and Ring use (preffer to use stampede if all can be popped before).

Autohotkey or Razormouse/-keyboard. and set it on 4ms sleeptime. Simply works best atm.

If you have any more specifiek questions just let me know.

Cheers,

Tim Roeleveld

Hey, Tim.

I can only copy a partial string in the WeakAura 2 Thrill of the Hunt and Sniper Training that you posted.

Any way of getting the full ones?

Many thanks.

Dear Tylor,

There is a difference between a CastSequence and Rotating spells that are off cooldown. What I mean with this is:
-It does not matter if it does not reset
-It takes the spells that are off cooldown
-Its not a Rotation

It should not matter for your DPS.

Tim i tried adding you in game and i sent you a pm

Hi Tim,

Is that your New updated for this Gnome Sequence? Is there something missing in MmsinglePre and Thrill of Hunt Macro?

regards,

Vinh

[/quote]

Dear Vihn,

Yes, these are the updated macro’s.

What I have done:
-Removed Power Shot from MmSinglePre and MmSingleThrill
(since tanks were complaining about the push backs)
-Added a new macro: MmMultiKey
(To make sure whatever your Lvl 90 talent is you can use it propper)

What i use is:
MmSinglePre -> Key 1
MmSingleThrill -> Key 2
MmMultiKey -> Key 3

With these 3 keys and ofc the other cooldowns, I am able to do 72k steady dps on Archimonde Heroic.
(I am allmost fully Heroic BiS geared)

If there are some more questions please let me know and I am willing to help you!

Cheers,

On your new aoe rotation theres no multi shot

[quote quote=25997]HEY TIM can you respond to my pm
[/quote]

Dear Walt,

Sorry but I did not receive a PM, please keep calm. I am just here to help.
Maybe an other PM would be helpful.
But as you mentioned: On your new aoe rotation theres no multi shot

I must disagree with you.

MmMultiRot -> Is the AoE rotation macro.
This one is actually with Multi-Shot.
(I do not use this one)

MmMultiKey -> Is the AoE Key macro.
This one is without Multi-Shot.
(I do use this one)

I personally don’t believe in Multi-Shot. I think its a waste of Focus.
(No regrets, there are people that might love it, that why I offer 2 solutions on AoE base)

Short explain of my opinion
Marksman is a single to two target based ranged DPS.

What do we want to do in a AoE situation?
-Cast Chimaera Shot every 9 seconds (Whenever you can)
-Launch an Explosive trap at the trash pack. (4+ mobs)
-Cast Barrage, Powershot or Glaive Toss of cooldown. (2+ mobs)
-Cast Aimed Shot ((1 to 9 targets) happens more often)
-Cast Multi-Shot ((10+ mobs) Won’t happen that much!)
-Cast Kill-Shot (Prioritize every mob underneath 35% health)

Thats the reason why I don’t use Multi-Shot (Not such important)
Hopefully I could help you a bit with this information.
People who can explain why Multi-Shot is important to use, please let me know. Together we can have a look at it and maybe improve this a bit more!

Cheers,
