I don't understand where all of this ''Hunters are low dps'' talk is coming from..
I am level 87 and I'm doing 32k DPS as BM on boss fights, and around 24-27k with MM ( I haven't tried Surv)) I know this isn't great DPS but i've heard some hunters saying they're doing 20k DPS at 90.

What??...

Stoped there.

Stats, mobs, and almost everything else scales different than 86-89 level mobs

You'll see a difference when you're level 90
So my DPS is going to go down once I hit 90?
You'll notice a change when you hit 90
Don't comment on the issue till your 90 k.

Yes. The loss of high crit chance, high haste values, hit rating, and expertise will contribute to a large drop in DPS. once you reach the 450 iLvL mark you'll be higher than you were in cata, but not by a very large margin. Hunters are in a bad place atm, but not god awful.
At 435 ilvl and level 90 I was doing less damage than 392 at level 85. But the dps scales quite rapidly with stats at 90. This means enchanting, gemming, etc. make a very large difference. I do nearly triple the dps I did when I first hit 90.
I left WoW in Cata. Just came back.

I havent tested MM and BM but for Survival, our AoE is pretty decent for 3 or more targets. I usually dominate on overall damage on level 87 dungeons and below becoz of AoEs as long as the tank dont move away the mobs from my traps.

But I find Survival's single target dps a bit low. Maybe becoz I havent enchanted my gear or I havent found a better rotation.

Which is better on single target DPS, MM or BM?
I generally do very well with AoE with of course 3 or more targets but bosses I'm capping out at 43k unless they pull in adds and get like 10 there then I'm top but I'm finding with a ilvl of 466 im being out dpsed by dks and mages left and right. Hunter as well as rogues need a fix.
Yeah great so Survival gets called in for clearing trash, saving the BM hunters for the boss fights... smart.

And yeah so far a everyone can out DPS me or I can out DPS them, pretty much depends on who is not having a Derp moment when it counts.

So after three weeks, nothing is final just go shoot stuff

all 3 hunter specs are dead last. if you think that's ok then...ok have fun, i'll enjoy outdpsing you on all my toons :P
i did the 2 lfr raids last tuesday.
add heavy fights where i had to do alot of switching i was doing 48k dps.
single target fights i was doing 52k dps.
both raids i had my develsaur and he was 47% to 50% of my dps.
I can finish a fight in 5 man instance with 100k dps but in raids where fights last longer we suffer compared to other classes.

I heard simcraft 100% mirrors reality. Confirm or deny?
I believe many would consider me an average player. I play most days of the week, but not all. I am still in pre-raid gear and do a lot of Heroics and random BGs. My skill is also average I understand the class mechanics (although it keeps frickin changing). Half my abilities are hot-keyed and macroed, but I still click on a lot of stuff too.

I decided to try MM 2 days ago just to see how bad it was. Truth is, I am doing much better with MM than I was BM. 90% of the time I am on the top of the DPS charts in Heroics and BGs. Many times it is as high as by 10%. I have had a couple of DKs top me and one Warlock, but thats it.

So pre-raid MM hunters seem to be fine as well (even at 90). Will I do as well as son as I can get into raids? I don't know but at least I will try. There isn't even enough data to pull for MM hunters so I don't see how Blizzard can fix what noone is playing.
