Survival Hunter PvE DPS Rotation - 7.0.3

Below is our guide for prioritizing your Survival Hunter abilities optimally. This should help give you a basic understanding of what to do and what's most important to focus on. Keep in mind that simply following this (or any other) rotation guide will not guarantee you to be amazing at DPS. How aggressively you execute the rotation, how fast and intelligently you react in encounters, your FPS, latency, etc. play a large part in the end-result of your performance. We encourage you to really focus on those things and perfect this rotation if you're very performance-focused.

Single Target Rotation

DPS Priority: Execute the following priority for optimal DPS.

  1. Explosive Trap on cooldown.
  2. Dragonsfire Grenade on cooldown (if selected).
  3. Lacerate maintained at all times.
  4. Mongoose Bite dump all charges when they stack to 3.
  5. Throwing Axes on cooldown (if selected).
  6. Raptor Strike to maintain Way Of The Moknathal (if selected).
  7. Flanking Strike as a filler ability.

AoE Rotation

  1. See single target rotation.
  2. Replace Flanking Strike with  Carve to dump excess Focus with 4+ targets.

The Survival Hunter AoE DPS rotation is similar to the single target rotation with the special changes noted above.

Effective Cooldowns

These are effective cooldowns to try and incorporate in each encounter.
