I switched to MM and my DPS is now better thanks to more ArP on our loot tables, but I still think my DPS is low compared to other pure dps clases with almost the same item levels.I used to rock the dps meters even though my gear was not as good as others, but now it is the other way around, is anyone having the same problems? have u find a solution?

Ugh, I wrote a comment and the website ate it. Trying again:Marks is performing well in ICC. Using 25-man kills, and the average of the top 200 DPS:Of pures, on Marrowgar, Marks hunters score #3, below Combat + Assasination rogue.Of Pures, on Festergut, the same is true.Festergut numbers (average of top 200 25-man DPS on WoL):rogue-assassination: 11576.279rogue-combat: 10227.652paladin-retribution: 9638.392hunter-marksmanship: 9570.464death_knight-unholy: 9568.732warrior-fury: 9230.918druid-feral_cat: 9046.616shaman-enhancement: 8821.690hunter-survival: 8780.109mage-arcane: 8690.312warlock-affliction: 8312.868death_knight-blood: 8132.156priest-shadow: 8131.618warrior-arms: 7866.625warlock-destruction: 7832.984warlock-demonology: 7633.764druid-balance: 7518.426shaman-elemental: 7514.088death_knight-frost: 7360.213hunter-beast_mastery: 7325.833mage-fire: 7219.847mage-frost: 6024.750(Note that subtlety rogues aren't even on the list.)Lord Marrowgar:rogue-assassination: 10480.155rogue-combat: 9395.680warrior-fury: 9177.575paladin-retribution: 9083.180death_knight-unholy: 9068.700hunter-marksmanship: 8779.510druid-feral_cat: 8437.200warlock-affliction: 8300.315mage-arcane: 8283.365priest-shadow: 8113.395shaman-enhancement: 8075.600hunter-survival: 8006.380death_knight-blood: 7876.150warlock-demonology: 7772.665warlock-destruction: 7678.140warrior-arms: 7631.447shaman-elemental: 7501.975druid-balance: 7371.202mage-fire: 7094.924death_knight-frost: 6713.380hunter-beast_mastery: 5282.839mage-frost: 3847.695rogue-subtlety: 2919.200There are a couple of 'hybrids' that make it high up on the list, but with the fight style preferring the 'stand still and kill' type scores, Marks is going to be competing with those on some fights.One point of interest; the difference between BM and Marks on Festergut -- a patchwerk-style DPS test if there is one anywhere in ICC -- is smaller than on most other fights, as low as 2500 rather than the 3000-4000 that is more common.In short, if you're underperforming as a Marks hunter -- it's probably you. :) (This is true for most people all the time anyway; a very small percentage of people come within 20% of the 'top DPS' averages; the numbers fall off pretty quickly. I should graph it to prove this visually, but after a lot of playing with the numbers, I can promise it's true.)

The rogues are up there for sure. I have stayed Survival for the moment and still posting comparative numbers with MM hunters similarly geared. Not really sure when Ill switch over. It will depend on when my gear will make it mean an actual boost in dps.

Thanks for sharing the info, I have done some changes like stackin ArP then AP and my dps has increased considerably. Still having mana issues on 10 mans and specially 5 mans depending on the mana batteries available.
