Don't get me wrong, I like the new Blink Strike...

..but why would ANYONE choose Murder of Crows or Lynx Rush now?

Your pet innately does 50% more damage with it's basic attacks, can attack from range, and instantly teleports behind targets when it can?

Expect it to get nerfed.

In seriousness, I agree; it seems unlikely that this will be going to live. Is there no internal cooldown?

Nope, it seems its a passive that's always running. :mrgreen:

Yeah I was looking at that and guessing it's "Kind of" balanced. The old one did an extra attack that was 600% normally damage, every 20 seconds. So if you remove the attack itself as this only works on its basic attacks, and work out how many of them it has enough focus to use over 20 seconds.... it "should" be 12 attacks at the 50% to equal the 600% of the old blink strike. Who knows, it may even be a dps loss to balance its passive nature.

Then there is the benefit and utility of making your pets basics ranged and throwing in a teleport for giggles. This new utility is almost enough to make most BM what the skill. I think we will just have to test it out and see how it goes.

All I can say is if (and it's terribly unlikely) Blink Strike remains as it is, I want Murder of Crows passively on targets that have hunter's mark. :lol:

What? I've gotten used to my murder. <3

************

So I hopped on the PTR and Blink Strike is functioning like it was before. I presume this will be in the next build then?

Me too... perhaps they'll make it like Glyph of Marked for Death, where Arcane Shot, Chimera Shot, Kill Command, and Explosive Shot automatically apply Hunter's Mark. The talent would change to have something automatically, or have a chance to, apply Murder of Crows.

Didn't another patch note indicate that arcane shot won't be applying it anymore?

and also, I would not want MOC in its current form to randomly apply, the cooldown and damage is to big for it to "accidently" proc on a small add/target, it could and would waste a lot of damage.

I don't understand.
Where does it say that Blink Strike is a passive ability?

A bit of palindromic wisdom:
"Step on no pets!"
Casual player.. don't raid, don't PvP. Suffer from extreme altitis
I love pets - combat or non.
