What are the stat caps for BM Hunter ?

Hunter
Hey all,

I was wondering what were the stat caps for us Hunters in terms of ranged. Such as Haste, Hit Chance, Crit chance and Mastery ? One would think that Blizzard would have a sticky somewhere with all the caps for all classes somewhere but I can find one lol


Thanks in advance yall :)

961 Hit, as much Crit as you can stack, as little Haste as you can manage, and whatever Mastery you end up with.

I thought haste was a priority in PvE. Not as important as agi/crit of course, though. But hell, I don't know anything about PvE.

Unless somebody more in tune with BM can come along and update this, the latest musings were that Haste is wortheless to BM Hunters. The reason being is that with Focus Fire and 3/3 Pathing, BM is already under the 1.66 second Cobra Shot plateau. Additionally, the amount of Haste required to reach the 1.33 second plateau is so egregious, that it's not even worth chasing. Neither 1.5 nor 1.4 second plateaus are worthwhile because they are DPS losses compared to the 1.66 second plateau.
Adarant,

Hello there and thanks for responding . Right now my haste is at 12.37 as well as 3/3 pathing and it takes me 1.8 seconds to cast Cobra Shot, does that sound right ?

Thanks in advance good buddy :)

Post Edit > Okay, I just reforged to 12.80 and it still takes me 1.8 seconds to cast Cobra Shot , what gives ! lol :)

Haste is in fact the best secondary stat for BM PvE hunters, after hit cap of course.

I've heard FD over values haste... I'm pretty sure Crit is still higher due to BMs talents that proc off crits.

Same here,

Agility > 8% Ranged Hit > Crit > Mastery => Haste is the oder I have seen on almost every site I do to ?

yeeeh, you im pretty sure you just hit your haste plateau, whatever that may be, then stack crit. But i still think Crit is more valuable to you.

You're not counting the full effect of Focus Fire, which will give you another 15% haste.

I was about to add this in. OP, you need to let your pet attack the target dummy too, so that you can generate Focus Fire procs. When you use Focus Fire, you gain 15% Haste, which will bring you below 1.66 seconds.
My haste is at 14.66% and Cobra shot time is 1.74, but it seems like while I wait for more focus people are killing bad things before I get Focus back.
1) this thread is from 2011. Please don't necro old threads. As you can see, a lot of the info is out of date.

2) Stop gemming for haste, you're gimping your damage. Getting your cobra shot down will not make your life easier. Focus on getting your shot priority down.

3) Use your focus regen tools: Dire Beast and Cobra Shot
Dude, way to necro a 2 year old threat, this thread was a cata thread, the info is way off.
