    Default Marksman / Ranger Which finisher do you use?

    I see all the talk with the new patch coming up that Rapid fire shot has been beefed so it'll be the best. But which do you use now?

    Headshot for beastial fury
    Rapid for shot speed bonus
    Dead eye for big DMg but slow cast

    Which do u think is best?

    Headshot to apply bestial fury. Hasted shot for damage:energy used ratio. Dead eye shot only if I have hit and run up.

    Reapply headshot as needed.

    5 combo points then Headshot
    5 combo points then Rapid Fire Shot
    5 combo points then Hasted shot (repeat this until buffs need to be refreshed)

    Rinse and repeat

    Pretty much this. Empowered Shot > Dead Eye Shot is only worth is if Verse of Joy is up, otherwise it's more efficient to just do the above.

    If any fellow Roleplayers want to meet up to RP, let me know.

    The answer really sort of depends on your spec and how deep into each you are.

    For single target high hp/boss fights my start is

    Pedestal
    Strafe > Imp Hit and Run > Bull's Eye > Deadeye
    2x Emp Shot > Deadeye until buff wears out

    Quick Reload and repeat.

    After that point it all depends on the build. An earlier poster already asked whether you have Bestial Fury.

    If you do, you may build your first 5 points with

    Quick Shot > Swift Shot x4 > Head Shot

    and then start into what I posted so that you'll have the added 5% bonus for the larger burst.

    Prioritize the 5% buff over Rapid Fire Shot if the mob is going to be alive for another 4-5 GCDs (depending whether you have Opportunity). If the mob is going to be dead in the next 15s then use Rapid Fire Shot first.
