    typo in hunter talents?

    The Transmorph Trap:
    Place a nature trap laced with a special toxin that will transmorph the next enemy into a beast, reducing their movement speed by 60% and causing them to be unable to use any of their normal abilities for up to 1 minute.

    my main is a hunter so im not ripping on this at all but.... that's insanely overpowered... you use that in pvp the other person can't do anything for a whole minute. use that on a healer and they can't heal anyone for a whole minute? or is this just a typo?

    It almost certainly has a reduced duration in PvP, just like Poly/Sap, and stuns.

    I don't have a hunter on Beta right now, so I can't test it for you immediately.

    As with all other crowd control mechanics, this will undoubtedly have a reduced duration when used on players.

    The talent doesn't even exist any more, the calculator just isn't updated on the site.

    The level 75 tier now includes talents called Murder of Crows, Call of the Beast (or something like that), and Lynx Rush.

    First off, that talent no longer exists and neither does that ability, period.

    Secondly, most/all tooltips regarding CC show the PvE duration. For PvP, it will most likely be 5-8 seconds, in line with most other 'loss of control' CCs.

    They key part being "up to", meaning that 1 minute is the MAX. I would not expect anything close to a one minute duration for pvp.

    It's Call Beast. Which is also a quite accurate description of what it does.
    "A Murder of Crows" is also rather interesting, as it is a second execute move(if the target is below 20%, it does not incur a cooldown when used, though it costs 60 Focus so you can't just spam it).
    Lynx Rush is currently severly underpowered.

    Check the hunter forums, we have a beta thread, it's right in the first post. There are even a few separate threads for them.

    Also, I doubt MoC will be as strong as an execute considering BC and LR. It has no CD under 20%, meaning that you have 100% uptime on it (it lasts 30 seconds, which is a 50% uptime pre-20%). I'd be rather surprised if you can stack multiple murders, and that a second one would just overwrite the first, especially considering the focus cost. My feeling is that the kill shot phase thing will just to keep 100% uptime on it.

    Hunter transfer just finished, I can confirm that this talent has been removed and replaced with those abilities.

    Sloppy, but gets my point/source across:

    My active pet does stay out with Call Beast, as you can see here:



    It looks like Call Beast summons one of three random beasts at the moment (and it also seems bugged-- it has no cooldown, and the Beasts run around and attack whatever they damn well please-- Hunter's Mark seems to help keep them focused, but they're a little finicky with their initial targeting).

    You can get the beetle, above;

    The Pandarian tiger:



    And the white, shiny tiger:

    No problem. They'll probably be scaled down before launch, hunter pet scaling is COMPLETELY. BROKEN. Right now. Yes that is actually my Devilsaur with nothing on him but Bestial Wrath in the second picture.
