    5.1 Changes and how they effect last tier abilities...

    With the removal to AOTF what is going to be the best last tier ability?? I want this question to be answered across BM and SV if possible.

    Thanks in advance

    Barrage is better in a perfect environment. The biggest difference is now with Barrage being castable while moving is it eliminates any loss of movement where as moving with glaives can cause issues that prevent the second glaive from actually hitting the target. It's not that big of a difference overall but I tend to find Barrage provides an extra 900-1.1k DPS on average personally.

    What about powershot? Despite his stupid knock back.

    This is on hunter forums. Go to druid section with that question
    But time is on your side
    It's on your side now
    Not pushing you down and all around
    It's no cause for concern

    It also pulls everything between where you stand and the moon when used.

    As much as I like Barrage, it's very impractical for dungeons.

    Not really a big factor in deciding, but unlike Barrage ort Powershot, you can hit with Glaive Toss when facing back to your target or even with broken weapon. Dont ask me how I found out the thing with broken weapon

    as of 5.1, you have to be facing your target for Glaive Toss

    i changed from glaive toss to Barrage, since now we can use it while we move.

    My dps hasnt suffered much tbh.

    Any word from the "numbers experts" on which of our last tier abilities is the strongest one in 5.1?

    Both Glaive Toss and Barrage have uses. Glaive Toss is better on single targets and cleaving. Barrage is better for AoE or slightly more spread cleaving. I use Glaive Toss as my default talent, and switch to Barrage for Feng, Will of the Emperor, Wind Lord, and sometimes Amber Shaper.

    As always, Powershot is useless in all phases of the game.

    honestly if they want to fix MM they need to give power shots damage on its main target to Marks get rid of the knock back and the "splash" damage and give us something else for the talent.
