<< Arcane Shots >>
I have been totaly avoiding my hunter for the sad dps he puts out with the new focus system. But what I did do is try to use the runeforge system and bump everything I can into haste. My thought behind it was if steady shot is a filler and focus filler why not try to increase your haste to fill up you focus bar that much faster. I have done zero testing on Dummies ... but just a thought if anyone want's to put the time into it.
Yea, for the time being my hunter is on the bench, been spending way more time playing my dk and priest until something gets fixed
And, to me MM is just broken really, bad - what good is Chim Shot if SS is falling off because of Focus and Chim Shot Cool down - "oh, I hope I have some Focus when the Chim Shot/Serpent Sting Planets align."
One way to fix this is to maybe make Focus Reg a bit more generous. Right now there's no rhythm to the shots.
One thing I cannot help but notice is most ranged DPS revolves around 2 abilities with the rest as filler depending on the situations. For example, maybe we are meant to use Steady Shot + AS as our bread and butter and only use Chimera to refresh SS, or when you need to DPS on the move. This would explain why these "signature" abilities only hit marginally harder that SShot and AS, as they take in account the down time to regen Focus.
Are we not just trying to overcomplicate things? I know when I started playing my hunter with this mindset, things like Global CD and overall chunkiness went away and my DPS increased quite a bit.
The same way people realized using most AOE abilities are not really worth it unless you have 4+ mobs.
My 2 cents on this.
Reality is a matter of perspective.
Refreshing SS with CS means you get more damage in that GCD that you otherwise wouldn't have. It's useful, but it probably should do a bit more damage.

I was running heroics last night.
I went into Violet Hold and started DPSing on my Hunter with my best friend who plays a Feral Druid tank.
We fought the bird guy.
He did 8.8k DPS while I did 7.4k, and that's prolly around the top I can do when DPSing.
He said he barely used any CDs for that.
...I is sad because Hunter is becoming my favorite class with the new changes but the damage just isn't there

I strongly suggest you all try Survival for a while. I was hitting 9k avg in ICC, pre-patch. Now, I average 11-12k, with burst for around 14-15k. All 264 gear, lots of haste, and my focus regeneration feels pretty smooth at this point.
