marks/sv hunter pvp rotation

Hunter
so i'm not sure what my rotation in pvp should be for maximum DPS on a target

serpent sting -> spam aimed shot -> chimera shot -> keep going?

im well aware of this. but that's not my plan.
There's no "rotation" for PvP no matter what spec. Situations and conditions are constantly changing in PvP and it's all about reaction and knowing what's most important.

If you can get an aimed shot off go for it. Chim shot on cooldown, keep serpent sting up, keep widow's venom up, keep concussive shot up, silencing shot as needed, scatter shot as needed, and trap as needed. If all of that is taken care of then you can arcane shot or steady shot.

I have no advice for someone who chooses to be gimp.


You should applaud someone for going against the grain to play what is the most fun for them personally, not degrade them because they're not playing the "best" spec at the moment. Shame on you.

MM was fun back when all our shots didn't hit like a wet noodle. Only casting aimed shot when we get 5 stacks of a slow stacking buff is a pretty big waste of a spec defining skill.


I don't disagree with you, Marks is pretty lackluster right now. My issue was that you refused to give advice based simply on the OP's spec choice.

I do, swap out to glyph of deterence for the extra damage mitigation and animal bond for the extra healing.

interesting so chim shot is actually worth the focus? same with widows venom?

thanks for this. i realize there is no true rotation but this is what i was looking for...at least pointed out a few things im doing wrong!
Yeah you should try to keep widow's venom up on pretty much every class since everyone has some form of self-healing now. And yeah chim shot still deals a fair amount of damage
Dude hunters suck at pvp. period. i quit.
I consistently beat BM hunters in dungeons.. they cant sustain the numbers i can after the intial burst.. then again they probably arent as good at their toons either..
no matter how good BM or Survival will be i think ill stay MM. Whether is OP or sucks.
The funnest to play imo

This guy gets it.

Besides that, a skilled hunter will be good with any spec. Pro MM >>>> Bad BM, I don't care how good/bad they each are. I haven't noticed anything that makes MM 'gimp' so far.
