Re: Changes to Hunter Pet Families in 6.0

Corehounds will now have three abilities? Their AOE-when-attacked, magic debuff, and Ancient hysteria? Or are we losing Ancient Hysteria?

Re: 6.0 Alpha Hunter Patch Notes

Well, I did get confirmation from Celestion that they're NOT giving Surv kill command back, in spite of the draenor perk that has them getting a buff for it. Cobra Shot draenor perk buffs Cobra Shot, nobody knows how 'kill command' snuck in there; it's a typo.

And a relieving one!

Re: 6.0 Hunter Patch Notes

A little bit confused.. so they're removing Kill Shot on survival, the Hunter execute, and leaving the other specs access to Kill Command, BM's supposed signature shot? Wouldn't it make sense to have Kill Command be BM only and leave Kill Shot where it is? Why does everyone even have access to BM's ...

Re: Maybe new Tame Gimmick? Maybe a New Rare?

Your reading comprehension leaves something to be desired. If it takes away, outright, from everyone else in the game, it's selfish. Not that things are exclusive, that it takes away from others. Understand yet? I doubt it, so I'll continue. Backscroll to your original comment, wherein you said pet ...

Re: Maybe new Tame Gimmick? Maybe a New Rare?

So, by your logic, no new hunter pets ever again, in any expac, and 50 or so minipets with each patch? Umm.. ok... because we are such a burden on the devs right now as it is. And since YOU have filled your stables, asking for more is selfish for the entire hunter community. Huh? As I said, there a...

Re: Maybe new Tame Gimmick? Maybe a New Rare?

Yeah, I would not expect any tameables for the rest of this expac. Pokewow pets are taking any resources that might have been applied to us. What's the count now, at least 30 new Pokewow pets in 5.4? maybe more. I understand the desire for more tameables, since my stables are basically full again a...

Re: More nerfs... and other changes.

Though it's been a long while since, many moons ago I'd been told via GM that the non-resetting cooldowns on rez and ancient hysteria was deliberate, because they're not meant to be quite as good as the normal versions brought by players.

Re: Virtual Realms

Right now AFIAK, CRZ was the mass testing platform for Virtual Realms. To see if it was even possible, where the thresholds would be, etcetera. Thus in theory CRZ will go away when Virtual Realms launch, but there's no telling at this point, nor is there a way to be sure which servers are getting li...

Re: Patch 5.4 PTR - Build 17056

It might make the klaxxi fans feel better, that we don't seem to be intended to outright kill them, but that they're another 1% set of bosses. It could be that they're there to reclaim Y'shaarj's heart, not help Garrosh at all, and we're simply between them and their goal.

Re: Hunter Changes in 5.4

I can see I'm not the only one getting even more upset than usual with the endless parade of PVE nerfs because of PVP. Crippling stampede and then buffing EVERYBODY does not help BM. Removing Silencing Shot AND Intimidate from us and then letting us get Intimidate MAYBE if we skip other things on th...

Time to set out the fainting couches, just in case. The last patch wasn't all that spectacular for new pets and mounts, but perhaps this time..!

Re: On edge about coming back.

My DPS went up about 10k, with blink strikes and the new beast cleave. Some nerfs hurt.. but the buffs made up for it, for me. It might be worth it for you too. Pet hunting has been a joy, with 50 stable slots.

I run around on a 504 or so ilevel hunter, and I like to think I'm pretty good at her. Mobs die, femaledwarf says with my gear and latency I'm doing about the DPS I should be.

Re: Blizzard…WHY?!

Warbringer soloing for a hunter relies not on a turtle, but on a spirit beast. That tiny little heal, is exceptionally vital! I can just barely not kill one at 502 ilevel when using a spirit beast, but a turtle is a laughably squished joke.

Re: Rants/raves/thoughts on 5.3

I did a lot of personal (if flawed) testing sitting in front of a test dummy on the PTR and live, with blink strike 1 and 2 vs lynx rush. I found them to be very, very similar, with blink strike pulling a little ahead, on the PTR. It seems to be a little lower on live, with an ilevel of 503. Using i...
