Re: The incomprehensibility of the bat nerf...

They're preemptively making sure that when they take Intimidation away that we just don't grab our wasp/shale spider/bat and ....continue to get completely mauled in PVP, I guess. Expect every single pet ability that can be used on another player to get nerfed to the extent that bats have, bats are ...

Re: Rants/raves/thoughts on 5.3

I am sick to death of friggin PVP screwing with PVE, over and over and over, for every single class I enjoy. People who like PVP, I have no issues with any of them, BUT GET OUT OF MY PVE. Blizz already has altered the diminishing returns of CC when used on a player versus in PVE settings, it's high ...

Re: Hunter Talent Updates

Honestly if they're nerfing it this much BM should be able to tame exotics from 10. By the lowest of shale spiders/silithids/serpents/etc, we wouldn't be -that- far ahead of other people (if at all for the most part) in bringing a nice new buff along. .-.

Re: Hunter Talent Updates

I intend to stick with huntering, but I really wish I had a better reason for changes than 'Sorry you cause problems in PVP, even though you don't PVP'

Re: Hunter Talent Updates

Reading the forums has said they intend to get rid of the reduction entirely, not just to 1%. I really, really get tired of PVP nerfs messing with my PVE. I suspect PVPers feel the same about PVE.

Re: Hunter Talent Updates

That's just over a half-second, for a 60 second cooldown ability! So if it's normally 1 minute, now it's 59.6 seconds! yay!

Wait what? What the heck is the POINT of giving this ability at all now?

Re: Rants/raves/thoughts on 5.3

I just saw that myself. I really don't see the point anymore. It's not even one second off their swings now. Granted they DID cut the time down on rabid and burrow but.. I don't use a worm and I DO use the other specials a lot. All I can think of is to keep BM from 'abusing' shale spider's 45 second...

Re: Hunter Talent Updates

That sounds fantastic to me. One less button to push, with better DPS. I wonder if it'll edge BM towards favoring mastery over crit.

Re: Hunter Talent Updates

I really don't mean to pull things away from the foul-crying over Intimidation being removed from BM (it annoys me intensely too), but has anyone actively tested the DPS differences of the new blink strike vs lynx rush? I'd love one less button to push, which means I am hungrily eyeing this new Blin...

Was it quest-related? Wrath feels so long ago... :(.
No, they were just decoration. The quests had to do with the elementals.

Those frosty floating orbs are an engineering gather node with a Zapthrottle Extractor! Extracting them gets you air and water motes.

Re: A ..healing question, not hunter question?? What is this

As I already said before in the thread, Tsaikojen, I don't like druids. I've played them before, all four specs, and while I appreciate having one in my team I have no desire to play one again. I wound up picking up a tiny panda shaman. Thank you for the suggestion but .. no. I do have a priest alre...

Huh, riptide with no CD, that IS terribly tempting.

I haven't had a single babyraptor drop since the nerf, but I did finally get my magnificence patterns.

Re: A ..healing question, not hunter question?? What is this

I did have a druid once, played til 85. I didn't put her on the list because I didn't enjoy playing a druid, be it resto, feral or balance, and deleted her when MoP hit. :(

A ..healing question, not hunter question?? What is this!

Recentlyish I raised my monk to 90, and have been gearing as a mistweaver. I'll be honest, though I like monks, their healing playstyle isn't really my cup of tea, which is an unfortunate thing to conclude -after- getting to 90 and working on getting some gear. So I need a new healer. I've played pr...

Canceling Cobra Shot

So suddenly I realize I can no longer cancel cobra shot by moving jumping or turning around, rendering my ability to reliably interrupt short casts pretty much nil.

Can anyone shed a light on how the heck I can cancel a cobra shot ... shot, so i can interrupt, say, a dinomancer's heal?

At least 5.2 is supposed to 'increase the drop rate' of the current raid tier stuff. x_x

Weapon upgrade, where art thou?

The third week of the expansion, happily I got the crossbow out of Scarlet Monastery, a nice blue. I haven't been able to upgrade it since, in spite of trying every single week save one where I was in surgery, into LFR and when I can, into 10 and 25 pugs. For some reason this xpac, Blizzard saw fit ...
