It will now do weapon damage rather then 80% weapon damage... I wonder if this will get Marks where it needs to be to match BM.
I honestly do not believe this is enough to put Marksman on par with Beast Mastery. If they give a buff (outside of careful aim) to Aimed Shot and perhaps we will see it then.
This would end up being a ~2% damage buff, while not huge, combine that with CA phase changes, it could be enough for now. At least to not be bottom of the barrel.
This won't fix the spec in PvP either. Marksmanship has no fun to it. It's boring. You choose it and get...3 abilities that are not interesting. No unique utility at all, it all went into the talent trees. No good burst either, so why play it?
This is how the mastery appears on the ptr... Will do more testing to see if they haven't changed the tooltip and whatnot.
they just need to buff steady and cobra shot to ATLEST 100% weapon damage. Aswell as MASSIVLY buff Chimera shot and explosive shot. Dont care of what they do with hunters in pvp already given up on that part.

Hunters do competative dps, meaning, they do enough dps to kill the content. In addition, they are considered optimal and not just "viable". On feng 25 man, hunters beat all but the top mage spec, warlock spec, and shadow priests. We beat ele shaman, boomkin, and inferior mage and warlock specs.
Do we need buffs? Well, we're not #1 so an argument can always be made, however I would prefer them bring all our specs even to each other rather than buff the class to compete with others.
