    You shoul go marksmen, better dps and an easier rotation…

    I love BM best myself but Marksman seems to suit me better than survival … which was a surprise to me!

    Marksmanship is an easier rotation (in my opinion) and -theoretical- higher DPS, but Survival brings the wonderful buff of replenishment (which dear god, was missing from our group last week). Plus, explosive shot to the face is ALWAYS fun. :D

    Falling off the ledge seems to be a common hunter problem just check youtube lol

    Ah, but did you fall off the edge or did you Disengage? The second is much more entertaining. The first time.

    Are you dying because your rotation is too difficult to manage on te go? Maybe try marksman as Simone else suggested.

    If you are already up to LK you can easily get gear to make MM the way to go. Personally I find it more enjoyable then SV and it is a nice secondary to BM. (will never give up my BM)

    I can see me doing that ledge thing when the time comes. I’ve not been there yet, but I have disengaged off the walkway in FoS once. We have all been there. When you are going to fail… fail big. At least that way you can laugh about it.

    You needed a blog post to tell me you sucked?

    She’s learning to SV so we can have replenishment on the Lich King fight, where all of us healers cry out for mana.

    That’s nice, I still didn’t need a blog post to tell me she sucked….I knew it already :P

    Survival is kinda fun I find. At least you didn’t disengage and reset Saurfang when he was on 11% like a hunter I know did, this was back when the lower spire was the furthest you could go in ICC.

    You should do like a guildmate of mine did — do a 180-degree turn then disengage. Check out the video clip we shot:

    In my humble opinion, MM should be the way to go. (And I play a Surv hunter… :D )

    You don’t have that much agility on your gear (don’t bother with socket bonuses, really… And a nightmare tear is great to activate your meta instead of a stam/agi because you gain +10 intel too). And ArPen gear is all over the place in ICC and it’s a great stat for BM as well : if you gem your current gear with Arpen, you could raid as MM or BM alike.
    And get rid of the pyrite infuser… You’re sooo overcapped hit (cap is 263-8%). Get some Arp trinket in the new 5-mans (tot or icc), they are great and cheap.

    MM rotation is quite simple, it’s the cooldown use that is special. Same goes for BM actually. Surv is based on a priority list, and you have to react when Lock&load procs (get a power aura). If you are not used to it, you will need time, and seeing you are in front of LK, not sure that’s the best time to try something new. You run the risk to look too much at your bars and not enough at defiles…

    For the enrage on the horrors (check the name, I run a French client) :
    /target Shambling horrors
    /cast Tranquilizing shot

    Everything above pretty much.

    My macro is different for LK – I use a focus target macro because we often have 2 horrors up on the phase change on 25man and the tank can only interupt with 1 stun.

    /tar focus
    /cast Tranquilizing Shot

    and I’ve got a bind up for my focus target so i can swap it on the move. I also have my MD on a focus target macro as well as a “tankname” macro just so that i can move the shitty adds onto the add tank and help with aggro on the adds later in the fight.

    A friend of mine just disengaged off the edge in P2 trying to get out of a Defile. Out of everything I’ve seen on LK that pretty much takes the cake. :P
