    Hunter ranged attacks now able to be dodged in MOP

    I think this is a very good change, hunters are now susceptible to rng on their ranged attacks the same as melee are. Dodging an aimed shot, scatter shot, chimera shot etc can all be game changers, makes no sense that they have 0 chance of not being dodged.

    What are your thoughts on this?

    why hunters and not all other ranged as well ?

    cuz the rest of the ranged can be "resisted" since spells?

    Would be fun trying to hit rogues and druids with quite alot of dodge chance in pvp.

    Dodge spells? Do I need to remind you that spellhitcap is at 1742, and melee hitcap is at 961 and expertise cap is 781 (1742 in total)

    Spell miss chance is 15% while physical miss chance is 7.5%, dodge however is also 7.5%, basically making them equal.

    Yeh indeed, all other physical classes have to deal with rogues, feral druids, enhancement shamans insane 30% dodge, so now hunters do too.

    Hunters lose dead zone.
    Hunters' attacks can be dodged now.
    Hunters lose the 5% parry.

    Seems fair to me (I play a hunter). Why would anyone want to be a warrior, if the hunter could attack from both 40yards and melee range, with undodge-able attacks? Hunters would be ranged undodge-able warriors with tons of CC and cooldowns. This would make them overpowered.

    I do Archery, and you could dodge an arrow. But trying to bring real world logic into this game is one of the most stupidest things you could do.

    People can dodge arrows. We're not talking about bullets here, arrows move much, much slower (and bullets in wow behave like arrows anyway. Guns in wow are... problematic). If they're coming from a good distance away, they're even easier to see coming and dodge. There's nothing unrealistic about this, and I'm actually kind of surprised that we haven't always been susceptible to our shots getting dodged.

    People can complain about this all they want, but it doesn't change the fact that it IS going to happen. We'll simply now be required to stack the same amount of anti-avoidance stats as everyone else. It's fair, and it's not really that big a deal. Besides, we still can't be parried or blocked, which means we STILL have an advantage over melee. Our 15% guarantees us all of our shots will land, 100% of the time. A melee with that same 15% still has to worry about parry and (when applicable) block. That or stand behind their target to get the same effect we get from anywhere, up to 40 yards away. Don't complain about this, find something more useful to complain about.

    My thoughts are that if I will have to stand behind a boss to dps effectively, then blizzard can go fuck themselves.
    Look! Words!

    That would be for the parry.

    well if my attacks can be dodged they better make aimed shot instant and have half the focus cost it does now.

    Chimera shot should also get reduced to 4 second cd as well as arcane shot being reduced to 10 focus.
