Say, if all 15 of those DPS did 100k DPS, that would be 1.5m raid DPS, now add 5%, that would be 1.575m raid DPS. In a 6 minute fight, that would equal to 75k*60*6=27000k or 27 million damage. Now think about it. If you were wiping to boss constantly at 15-10m due to berserk, would you like to be Troll?
Trolls have had this bonus for years, there's been quite a few beast bosses and adds and trasg, and just now people are complaining about jt being OP because there happens to be an abundance of beast bosses..
As a troll hunter for 8 years now I can say that I can't wait for 5.2 to come out!
I felt the need to post this. It appears that 4 bosses are beasts (and some adds that spawn during the boss encounters).
Tortos appears to be a troll fight. The boss is a beast and most likely the bats and tortoises he spawns will be beasts (this fight we will go SV on imo).
Horridon also does too because he spawns adds as well except he spawns some trolls so it won't be as good, but it's still better to be a troll on that fight (again, we'll probably go SV for this fight.).
Tier 14 had 2 bosses as beasts out of 16, so 1/8. Tier 15 will have at first 4/12 bosses so 1/3. That is a much bigger amount of beast bosses. When you come to H it'll have 4/13 which is still a lot bigger than what t14 had.
I'll probably end up race changing.
I'm not complaining or anything, but, hell, even blues said Horde does have better racials overall. Sure they're not game breaking, but if you really wanted to maximise your dps as a e.g. bm hunter, you'd have to go Orc. That's a fact.
Yea, because Horde racials didn't already have the upper hand in PvE.
My hunter will stay orc so I wouldn't have to pay 25$ to race change back from troll next raid tier...mind you I don't do raiding besides LFR but still the same.
How I feel about healers that try to DPS
I'm considering race changing, given that they haven't said anything about nerfing the troll racial so far, but I'm curious, how do you guys use berserking maximally? We only have one cast-time ability, and we intersperse it with a lot of instants.
I can see it being useful as an additional haste stack on top of RF and TW for Stampede.... diminishing returns sure, but there doesn't seem to be a better place to use it. How do you guys use it and why do you think it's so theoretically competitive with orc?
They also said that they weren't going to change the racial, so hopefully they don't.
Don't forget about dead eye, it gives you 1% expertise.

5% damage will not hide the hideous look of a troll hunter. I'll be staying as I am in orcland.
I cant get over having 2 toes but damn trolls have gangsta bow animations >_>
So with the buffs to ES / BA, wil Troll still be the best race to be for Hunters? Or should we be sticking with Orc?
