So… tried MM last night in raid. With a 728 gear level, and running one of the GSE macros, I was doing 60-80k depending on the fight. That was better than most of my team, but…
When looking at AskMrRobot logs, the best pull, which was 80k, was only 25% percentile of similar geared hunters.
The Marked shot mechanic is going to be a thorn in the side of any MM hunter using macros. There’s no way of optimizing macros to adjust for a random proc like that.
I’ve also tried quite a few BM macros on the dummies, and BM’s damage is lower overall, and has a key problem with Cobra Shot. If you add it in a macro, you’ll always be fighting focus starvation, and if you leave it out, it’s too much of a dps loss. BM also seems to be just a mess when you have Dire Beasts, Murder of Crows, and Stampede all out at once.
I’m not happy at all with the state of hunters this time around.
