WTF is that all about? melee gets a gem, casters get a gem tanks get a gem, PvPers get a gem. No gem for hunters...
To be fair, I wouldn't be surprised if they completely forgot about one for us, considering they've neglected to fix anything wrong with Hunters in the last 3...4 PTR builds. It's not like we have an unplayable broken spec and 3 bloated rotations or anything.
stopped caring since i wont win a helm to use it
basing that off my luck with sha touched gun atm 15 kills, 2 agi trinket 13 gold

Ignore that, was thinking you meant of the new gems.

How many times have their been new builds where a trinket or some other such thing starts with it having a proc that states it procs on melee hits? It is admittedly pretty ridiculous that "melee" still seems to be their default "go-to" when they design a new proc of that category, with changes to a more general term including ranged attacks coming later, but it always gets fixed. You're delusional if you thought there'd not be a gem for hunters, its datamined stuff from the test realm.
Also, there are sha touched gems for tanks. Strength and agility provide fairly reasonable amounts of avoidance stats for their respective tanking classes. Sure it isn't in the same budget level as straight avoidance stats would be, but it is far from useless. Not to mention in general tanks DPS is quite valuable, so the damage boost value of those gems is not wasted. They practically double dip in the value of those gems. Except each dip might be 3/4 of a dip, but it still comes out to 1.5 dips.
