Re: Added Note - Kibler's Bits/Mammoth Treats

As Gimlion noted, the trade-off for this is pets scaling properly with our own consumable buffs.

Re: Gnomish X-Ray Scope

Yep ! Wasn't it said at one of the BlizzCon panels ? They were saying it was going to be a while (like, around 4.1 or later seemed to be implied) before we saw it too, so personally, I was pretty excited when I saw this item get changed. For those of you on Beta, is an 800 AP proc still decent at l...

Re: post patch 4.0.1 regarding a talent

@Sukurachi: yep, they changed Kindred Spirits to just increase max focus rather than the old effect of a damage and run speed boost. @Silvarain: note that Pathfinding only provides a run speed boost while in Aspect of the Cheetah or Pack (as it always has). The passive run speed boost Kindred Spirit...

Blizz won't let a must-have pet stay that way. If it happens, expect worms and chimaera to lose their AoE DPS abilities.

Re: Pet Usage Flowchart and Ability Spreadsheet

So if these abilities do things other than what they say in their tooltips (which I did correct from personal experience in a few cases, like feral charge bear... I know it interrupts, even if it doesn't say that on the tooltip), then this list isn't going to be entirely accurate. Just to confuse m...

Re: No longer able to macro KC?

In regard to old world levelling dungeons from SFK onwards Daelo posted on the Blizz forums to note that he knows they're currently undertuned for appropriate level groups and they'll be dialing the difficulty up soonish (those changes will presumably hit live with 4.0.3). As far as the original que...

Re: Pet Usage Flowchart and Ability Spreadsheet

I think it's one of those things that should go without saying, ...

Re: I have a Wild Hunt question

Anyia wrote:I started with 2 points, but after watching the pet focus bar I dropped both of them. I should go back and see how focus holds up during BW though - that might make it worthwhile to put one point in there.
Only the hunter gets a focus discount during TBW. Pets just get a damage boost.

Re: I have a Wild Hunt question

I'm curious where people are putting the talent points that they're taking out of Wild Hunt. There's nowhere else to put them as BM that is even potentially a DPS increase, and if nothing else, WH will always affect the pet's first attack (or first two attacks if you turn Dash/Dive/Charge off). Now,...

Re: Pet Usage Flowchart and Ability Spreadsheet

Some variation on the caveat from Frostheim's post on WHU may be worth including in the addon description and this thread (i.e. the flowchart/addon can provide advice only, it's still up to the player to decide which buffs/debuffs are actually more important to their particular group). The pet buff ...

Re: Got an question about mastery.

Frostheim has his advice up on WoW Insider now. This may have been the post Spiritbinder was referring to (as it's on WHU as well), but his advice is that mastery is better than both crit and haste at level 80. He also points out that gemming for hit is likely still a bad idea, since you're generall...

Re: Pet Usage Flowchart and Ability Spreadsheet

I think they might keep casting - but not for the same reason. Sunder (or a bear druid's Lacerate) causes threat when applied, even at max stacks. Prot warriors apply the Sunder effect with Devastate (which also does damage), so they keep using it. DPS warriors hate being asked to apply Sunder for ...

Re: Pet Usage Flowchart and Ability Spreadsheet

I should have specified that I was talking about my level 37 hunter. I haven't done much on Sara yet aside from soloing, where things die too fast for any real "rotation". But that all makes sense. :) Ah yes, that would reduce your scope for playing focus games to crank out more multi-shots without...

Re: Got an question about mastery.

With the newly reduced hit cap, I plan on reforging some hit to mastery fairly soonish. With the stam->AP conversion gone from the SV tree and hit changed to a blue gem, another suggestion I have seen is to use agi/hit gems in blue slots and reforge away additional hit rating to compensate (with gea...

Re: Patch 4.0.1 a Foreshadow to Muti-pets?

As others have pointed out, warlocks can actually have a pet+guardian out rather than multiple pets. I believe the enhancement shaman situation is similar (wolves are real pets, elementals are guardians). Hunters actually having multiple pets is unlikely to ever happen. Being able to call a second p...

Re: Starting to like MM again

As far as I can tell, the main thing to adjust to as SV post patch is that Arcane comes in as a replacement for Aimed and is focus rather than cooldown limited. Thrill of the Hunt becomes more significant as well, since it can affect our choice of whether to hit Steady or Arcane as a filler shot. I ...

Re: Pet Usage Flowchart and Ability Spreadsheet

As BM, TBW+Kindred Spirits+Fervor should allow 8-9 Multi Shots in a row without running out of focus.

(110 starting focus + 50 focus from Fervor = 8 half cost Multi Shots, then focus regen and Invigoration over the first 8 seconds should give enough focus for one last hurrah)
