Survival Changes are... weird.

Mongoose Bite and Flanking Strikes are now talents. Now our damage comes from Raptor Strike, rather than Mongoose Bite (unless you talent MB, which replaces Raptor Strike). Flanking Strike causes Kill Command to also have you strike the target.

We get a frost explosion as a talent, dragonfire grenade renamed and given to use as a baseline skill, and we get serpent sting back.

The best thing ever though:

SURVIVAL GETS GLAIVE TOSS BACK AS A LEVEL 100 TALENT

Hopefully it'll be good. For those specs that had it, it wasn't ever that good for Legion, aside from some very niche circumstances.

I think most of those will be critters and battle pets. They fit a similar design of the original frog model, which also had mechs. Now, I could see the mech frogs being tamable easily. The rest will depend on if there is a new frog family.

Excited for the Surv changes. Basically everything that was asked for! AotE making you temporarily a ranged spec was definitely a fun surprise.

Also, pet spec grants them Lust/Rez/Master's Call apparently? According to the Surv disc.

Agreed, Sonam. These are definately pleasant surprises :D Hopefully BM will also be given the same treatment.

Zandalari may be getting a Dire Horn form instead of a bear form. A datamined spell was found in the same location as the Raptor and Pterodax forms, and it reduces damage by 30%.

This makes it sound it is not just for druids.

Minimap images were datamined. It looks like Kul Tiras as a whole is much further along than Zandalar is.

Lone Wolf is now passive for MM. You can still have your pet, but when you dismiss your pet, you get the Lone Wolf buff.

This is a great thing, in my opinion.

I think so, too. You can have your pet for soloing, then you can get rid of it for raids (assuming the Lone Wolf buff is more dps in BfA) without having to switch talents.

If Stampede still functioned like it used to, it would've been very tempting to make a new hunter, tame only bees on them, stuff the stables full of bees, then enter a BG and use stampede to unleash a swarm of giant bees onto unexpecting Hordies. :lol:

I'm getting so hyped for this expansion, I hope some more creature models are revealed soon in the datamining.

One of my personal favourite things so far is this demonic baby goat. I have a feeling it'll be a minipet, possibly from the store like Argi, but either way I simply must have it. :D

Though it could just be due to the stat squish, it seems BM is getting nerfed. :/ Though, bear in mind, this is very early on in the Alpha, so things will change.

Murder of Crows is being nerfed from 162% of AP to 34.02%.

Multi-Shot is being reduced from 100% of physical damage to 27%

Aspect of the Beast. Ferocity's bleed is being reduced from 270% of AP to 56.7%.

Barrage is being reduced from 80% to 35%

Bestial Fury is being removed.

Binding Shot no longer stuns.

Chimaera Shot is being reduced from 720% nature damage to 195%

Dire Frenzy's Focus generation is being reduced from 24 to 20 over 8 secs.

Blink Strikes is removed.

Disengage's movement speed is being reduced from 60% over 5 secs to 50% over 4 secs.

It looks like Titan's Thunder will be a baseline ability, granted at Lvl 12


Yes, it's far to early to make judgements, but one has to wonder about across-the-board major nuking of damage.

Not that anyone here actually raids or cares about doing damage, but if Blizz does make BM perform worse that what it is in Legion, any raiding hunter will abandon the spec.. it's really that bad now.
