    Marks buff yay!

    Hunter
    - Aimed Shot damage +10%.
    - Chimera Shot damage +50%.
    - Steady Shot damage +20%.
    - Black Arrow and Explosive Shot damage +15%.
    - Hearing lots of concerns about Power Shot in PvP, so we may need a PvP-specific tweak there.

    I hope they don't fuck uo power shot, yeah it's op in ptr right now, but well


    still bm has more utility and we'll see if the burst is still better or not

    Doesn't matter, that SV buff just GG'd the competition.

    Best spec for everything now

    In that case, we can celebrate the possible return of MM PvP.

    I'm reading that as "Now it actually hits the target it's too OP"

    yeah they gonna fuck up power shot, I agree it's too op on clothes but almost useless on plate, instead of 800% weapon dmg (phyisical dmg), I'd be fine with sometihng like 600-650% nature dmg

    lolz, so they buff the main shots of MM then turn around and buff sv also.... so that means MM will still be bottom rung of dps meters.... sad! and I happened to enjoy MM too.

    Damn it feels good, almost Christmas when you're 8 yrs old good. I didn't think they were going to buff us at all.

    These buffs actually put all 3 specs crazy close (based on some short napkin math). And by close, I mean all within 1k with my current sims. And TBH, Marks is easier to play to its potential then BM is IMO.

    For reference, the marks buffs sim out to about an 8k dps increase and the sv buffs sim out to be about 5.25k dps. Simcraft shows them as about a 7.5kdps and 5kdps increase respectively.

    With the 50 cost on aimed shot the careful aim phase still makes me cry at how bad the focus capping is there.

    If it really bugs you, I've had success with not CA focus capping and fervor.

    Damn... I hope they change those, really would hate to play as MM again :/
    Not everyone is going to be an expert theorycrafter or mathematics expert, but also be honest about the fact that linking to someone else’s work doesn’t necessarily turn you into one either.

    How close is SV and BM in ST fights at the moment? I feel like BM will still be a decent spec, or will SV and MM go ahead of it? I still like playing BM but I feel like the new set-pieces and meta will be better off for SV.. Anyone got any stats on this already or knows anything?


    Thanks.

    nice changes. I'm kinda curious to how the chimera shot buff will turn out though. It does pretty shit damage currently, but 50% is a lot :P. The aimed shot buff is nice, but idk how much that will actually change. Steady shot buff is meh, 20% of 5k isnt much ;P

    Idk how much chimera shot is currently doing. I'm guessing around the 15-20k on players with 40k~ crits. At least chimera shot will be doing some notably damage next patch with 60k~ crits. Going to be insane if an MM hunter is able to set up instant aimed shot with power shot into chimera shot. That's like (if all crit ofc) 200-250k damage in 3 globals or so.

    Some of those changes I don't get though tbh. Just take a look at the DK changes. 30% buff to diseases, 8%~ buff to scourge strike. 15% rip damage buff? >.<
