Re: Rants/raves/thoughts on 5.3

Still hoping for: * Pythons - Would be nice to have a snake that didn't look radioactive * Hydras - 'nuffsaid * Snails - I have my reasons for this one >_> * Wasp - still waiting on a black/yellow skin that looks like a bee/yellowjacket * Spirit Beasts - Still hoping for some creative skins instead ...

Re: THIRD TALENT SPEC!!!

Now what would make my day is to find out that they are going to fix my issues with soloing in raids >.> I loathe PVP so don't have much reason to use a 3rd spec (other than popping over to BM to tame an exotic occasionally.) But, I got used to being able to be an emergency backup tank for real raid...

Re: Growl / Pet Threat Bugged?

Where are you having this problem? Any specific mobs/types that you are seeing this with? Are you seeing any "Immune" messages? Do you have any addons that can track threat to confirm whether or not your pet is actually generating any threat? Do you use Glyph of Distracting Shot? Are you getting "Im...

Re: Isle of Giants Question

It is also the home to one of the new world raid bosses, Oondasta... Who is a MASSIVE mask wearing devilsaur who was having a blast wiping 50+ raid groups on the PTR. Looks like the most dangerous ability of his, Spiritfire Beam, was just nerfed in a hotfix, so don't know how scary he still is. The ...

Re: Direhorns- What are they good for?

Since no one else has explicitly stated it, the range is 180 degrees facing front, and from what I could tell when testing on PTR, it seems to start around it's neck.. I was trying to convince Blizz to change this during the PTR to a full damage immunity given it's many limitations, but sadly I didn...

Re: Glitches

* Seems like the vast majority of raid bosses are now immune to Growl. This includes both the taunt and extra threat. * This was an intentional change by Blizzard in a hotfix during 5.1 since they were tired of players complaining about Hunter pets randomly grabbing agro during raids (IIRC Blizz spe...

Re: Dinomancers.....wtf

You have to be able to put out some serious dps in order to get them to 50% before they attempt to cast their heal. The heal is not affected by WV at all, and if you use a stun to stop it, they will immediately start recasting as soon as they get out of it... The best way to deal with them is Silenc...

Re: Looks like Marksman may become viable in 5.2 after all..

The problem is that MM doesn't really have a niche to fill. :/ SV is best at AOE, BM is best at burst, MM is merely equal to them on overall/sustained dps on single target fights. Femaledwarf is designed to sim single target very well, but its hard to account for add fights on a sim spreadsheet. Gre...

Re: So, if we could get ONE thing....

If I restrict myself to "one" thing to beg for, then that would have to be a fix for Growl/Glyphed Distracting Shot inside of raids. Ever since they changed the majority of raid bosses to being Growl-immune, it also affects the Glyph >_<;; I used to have a lot of fun soloing stuff and doing old raid...

Re: Rants/Raves/Thoughts On 5.2 Tameables

Would it really kill Blizz to give us some non-ghostly spirit beasts? As it is the catch-all family for hunter pets, it wouldn't be going to far to give us firebirds/phoenixes, slimes/oozes, hydras, or anything else for that matter.. Heck, I would probably switch back from SV > BM if I could get a s...

Is there a Petopia guild on the PTR?

As the subject asks, are there any Petopia guilds on the PTR servers? Specifically, the US PVE server whose name escapes me at the moment ^^;;; I'm more interested in testing/bug catching hunter specific issues than getting practice time in on the new content so the guilds available are not particul...

Re: EDIT: Taming Buff Pets in 5.1 FIXED

Now that the loophole has been closed, does anyone know where we can find a list of the "bad" buff pets? I'm sure there is a way for them to allow us to tame our shiny special pets AND prevent the combat-related buff abuse. I'm of the opinion that all us hunters should get a petition together to hav...

Re: Expedition Yak price increase, 120,000g

Something that no one else seems to have mentioned about the price hike, is that with the current mount system (and prices) you would have to buy one for each and every toon that you want it available on. With the new system, you only have to buy one once and every toon you have on that server (plus...

Re: EDITED: Appearance Buff Pets now RETIRED. Facts/Explanat

I always hoped Blizzard would reclassify the combat related buffs on tamable mobs as "debuffs", while leaving the cosmetic changes as "buffs", so that when tamed we'd get the appearance but automatically lose any sort of combat effects. I guess they decided this was too much work to separate them an...

Re: Hydras, Blizzard, and Us

I think one of the hurdles blizz sees to adding hydras as tamables is that we already have wolves & devilsaurs to provide the crit buff (and both are already ferocity) so it may be seen as being pointless atm.. If they gave us hydras as mere scaly wolves, then there would still be a bitchstorm over ...
