    Actually, a very nice level 70 invited me to her dimension where she demonstrated the sustained DPS of MM vs. ranger. MM was 10% higher.

    OP, I'm still trying to sort this out too. I'll probably do some testing tonight on various MM builds to see what works. Been a while since I played MM so I need to figure out what the rotation is again.

    I'm using same old macros from NT and still works fine i guess, but the lag between skills in a macro due to them being legendary is very tiring and delays your next skill in the rotation.

    MM is currently unplayable due to lags/delays after each button hit. After using Empowered Shot, you rarely can pull off a 5 combo point finisher because of how clunky macros are right now. There will be a cast for the first empowered shot in your opening rotation.

    Shadeborn is even worse. (Dropping 30 FPS when hitting a button)

    Well, 61 MM 7 Ranger 8 NB. Take Free recoil, Rapid fire, Calc shot, Razorbeast, & Hellfire blades as legendarys.

    Cant actually copy/paste macros cause GB is down atm but basically i just threw Bullseye, Razorbeast, Energy manip & Hellfire into a macro with Rapid fire shot/Deadeye shot (Deadeye at bottom).

    Roto is a little weird, get used to hitting buttons inbetween GCD's. Opener should be something like // Deadeye->Empowered->Swift->Barbed (Or w/e the bleed dot is called in MM)->Calc->Lightning fury->Rapid fire macro->Swift->Empowered->Deadeye->Empowered->Sentry->Deadeye->Empowered->Barbed->Empowered->Swift->Empowered.

    The 2 Empowered shots at the end will have a small cast time but afterwards all others will be instant from this point. basically you just swap between filler rotations consisting of either 1 Bleed DoT or 1 Calc on the Fourth combo point (So Emp->Swift->Emp->"Bleed or Calc"->Emp). If you time everything just right with the opening rotation you can get to sentry while Bullseye is still up, Which is why after your first deadeye i do a swift instead of emp first just to make up for that slight delay between keypresses.

    I'm still playing around with it a bit, there may be a better way to get you're burst rolling (i.e. opening with calc and going straight into CD block Rapid fire->Emp->Bleed->Deadeye->Emp->Sentry). Have yet to even use strafe as well, may be a good channel with the calc legendary. Anyways, I'll save the theory crafting ramble for another time; Basically that is how i play MM right now, Enjoy.

    Anyone else have issue with rapid fire shot? When trying to macro it tries to fire it every time, icon in hotbar shows like on cooldown, but tooltip shows 0sec after casting, then implies it ready again.

    Might be me who is stupid, but..

    Hmm interested thread. I've been trying to get a mm spec to work in the real world. Using the RFS legendary and making sure I have calc eat at a hasted shot I'm pulling 220k. I haven't tried a DES rotation - I don't use it at all - but that's because I'm sitting at 12-15% CP.

    Also, I swapped in to 7 or 8 *** (7 or 8 ranger, not looking at it right now) because VP > HF for single target.

    Basically I run a rotation off the CD of RFS. Spam empowered (getting the bleed up is marginal) until 6-7 seconds left before RFS comes up, Hasted, Calc, spam emp, RFS. When SB comes up, you need to do hasted / calc before it. Doesn't matter how many points HS has.

    When RFS and SB are down, I don't bother with HS at all - spamming emp is better dps.

    I think even buffed with multiple ticks, strafe is a DPS loss, or at least DPS neutral.

    opener is a mess - simply need some time to get empowered up. You can start with 5, HS -> calc -> RFS -> HS -> Calc -> SB but then you're kind of stuck with the hardcast ES.

    Anyway, I'm no spec writer and don't have the patience to go crazy parsing and breaking down, but it's serviceable. Lower DPS than SB but about on par with Ranger.

    I don't understand the complaints about lag in the rotation. Once ES is up to 7 stacks there's no CD unless you let it drop. I don't get lag in SB either. Maybe my rig or interwebz are just fast?
