Hunter (Forums, Talent Calculator)
Arcane Shot An instant shot that causes 165% weapon damage plus 4,184 125% weapon damage plus 2,378 as Arcane damage. Requires Ranged Weapon. 30 Focus. 40 yd range.


Seriously, they reduced the damage but still made it cost 50% more?
Unless they are auto applying widow venom or concussive shot that's bull.
It feels like they are forcing MM.
The rapid fire thing is weird to me. Wouldn't it make more sense to have the bonus be valid for each spec? Like BM get reduced KC cost or BW cd. MM get there rapid fire, and SV can get, I dunno reduced cd on black arrow or something.

These changes are the fault of the hunter community. We are to blame, or rather the QQQ from the idiots that want to keyboard dance, and think that's fun.

Weeks ago, there were about 12 QQ threads BY HUNTERS that Arcane was too strong, and people would only want to cast it, and it "wasn't interesting enough".

So now we get a 20% nerf to arcane, and a 10% buff to basic shots.

Dammit. Sometimes I really hate other hunters. Good job all.

So instead of compensation for the Readiness nerfs, we get further overall nerfs.

As of this PTR, Kill Command *is not* in either Survival or Marks spellbook.

also I did a couple rounds of test on current PTR with the above changes verses live.

I used same character, same stats etc. Same talents (most importantly, glaive, crows, and dire beast).

I was Survival. Same target dummy, same duration (5 min each), same number of tests (3 on each).

I used same rotation as much as I could. On live, I used Readiness and my engineering glove enchant. On PTR I forgot to macro the engineering glove enchant in and did not have Readiness to use so I undercut the PTR totals a little.

PTR i did not have my addons (mainly weakauras) so I did cap focus a few times and let ES sit a few seconds longer than optimal a few times. Wasnt the case on live since I am used to my auras and CD addon to notify me. PTR I was watching bars so it was less efficient.

The point I am getting at is, the PTR test was a bit sloppy compared to the live test.

And with these changes, the PTR was still 5-7k higher each time overall. I suspect more had I had my addons and engy enchant etc.

The sky is not falling, my friends, we have a few weeks of PTR left. wring thy hands no more!

Wow, how perfect is that Kor'kron shammy set going to look with the Kor'kron War Wolf???

Can hunters get that set as well, despite it being a shaman look?

Damn, shaman-only. Shame that hunters can't get some of the pieces for transmog.

Meh giving KC to other specvs sounds dumb. I read about this recently too and was like WHAAAAAAT! Its like giving explosive shot to BM or Chrimeria to Surv. Dumb.

And i can't believe hunters QQ'ed about arcane shot...really? Ergh.

So...

BM was a 5% loss with ptr changes
MM was a 2% loss
SV was a 2% loss

Not the end of the world but annoying.... and dissapointing.
