BM hunters getting nerfed big time!

#1 Unread post by Hailic » Fri Apr 19, 2013 4:42 pm

Seen this yesterday and I do not like it one bit. I use Intimidation and silencing shot to be able to kill all the crazy chain healing spell spaming rares they have in MoP.
Talents
•Intimidation is now a Level 30 talent, replacing Blinding Shot.

Marksmanship
•Binding Shot is no longer a talent, just a Marksmanship spell.

I keep hearing this is a nerf due to hunters using SS and Intim for control of these mobs that do so much casting (like the Pandaren rares).

Makes me wonder how I've been killing them as Survival all this time, tanking with a wolf?

No intimidation and silencing at once? Well, there goes half of my CC bursting

well if they make intimidation silence when the stun fails to land (ie mob is inmune to stun) should be fine with me, anyway i cant use intimidation on horridon mobs for example neither binding shot.

But... i do love binding shot, when placed correctly you cna have an instant aoe stun, used to drop it on will of the emperor on the middle and whenr ages passe dby got stuned and reset fixiate, was and still is wonderfull.

my point is that we will work that out, maybe you can use binding shot and intimidate as a talent or maybe use a nether ray they have a silence ability

This isn't so much a PVE nerf as it is a PVP nerf. Blizzard thought hunter CC was too good.

Honestly, I'd rather keep silencing shot and use a pet with a stun. The cooldowns work out better that way.
