Pets critting for almost 200k with instant abilities are NOT the same as Chaos Bolt.
The forum is mostly about the pet critting but also about getting instagibbed by hunters with powershot. I find it funny you say "power shot didnt even solo kill the mage that was at 70-80%". What do you mean didn´t even, no ability does this damage. I remember demo wlocks were op at the start of mop and if i was really lucky i could with both pets up and dark soul and trinket hit people for 150k~ twice in 2 globals. This was nerfed for obvious reasons so whats different here. As far as i know for classes like rogues that can open the trinket is bis so people will use it.

Doesn't matter, anyway. Blizzard is changing the subpar powershot next patch anyway.

Happy for my tyrannical i entered 2v2 arena to own something and a warrior charged at me and while i had the upper hand (waited for cds to counter him) he suddenly "oneshot" me. I mean seriously. I had my finger ready on bubble but he killed me SO FAST, i mean within a GCD. I dont know that is possible and i didnt check combat log, because by then i already deleted this game. I think dragons roar were involved, not comparable to a pet but its in the same caterogy of things that shouldnt be that crazy.
Game is balanced around 3v3 etc.

Shall we just stop comparing chaos bolt with power shot? Aside from being able to crit hard, both abilities are completely different.
Also, the thread is about blink strike hitting like a truck, not about the power shot.
Highest blink strike ive seen in arena was 93k, all buffs and tricks of the trade and his pet claw crit 40k. No idea if he had shado pan trinket or not but average blink strike is around 70k dmg, doesnt seem so bad considering all buffs but pretty damn hard hits for a pet
As the other thread was closed, here is a new video demonstrating the power of hunter in very skilled hands curteousy of Kettu.
Note to the mods, linking a video on youtube is advertising now? Some A++++ moderating, go and ban every kungen video and every other pvp video, all the hydra videos and all the tactics videos.
I was simply linking a video which showed the damage and potential of hunters.

its funny as his pet alone did more dmg than the dk
Now since the trinket has been fixed for pvp is this now 'fixed'? Or do they still hit hard?
Time...line? Time isn't made out of lines. It is made out of circles. That is why clocks are round. ~ Caboose
How does linking a video which demonstrates pvp damage qualify as 'advertising'? I was simply adding to discussion whilst showing the power of the class.
Some really nice moderation on this forum(/s), but it seems that obviously it got the point across. Since these discussions started pve trinkets AND powershot has been nerfed.
It shows Blizzard are playing very active attention to the community , which is nice to see.

The only reason hunters are able to net such ridiculous numbers is because of their pvp 4 piece giving them a lot of pvp power. Rapid fire is already a very strong cd, adding that bonus pvp power is insanely overkill.

Welp, they've nerfed hunter burst alot, (on 5.3 ptr obviously) let's hope they do the same for other classes and don't leave hunters in the dust this season :/
edit: particuarly warrior cooldown stacking (buff sustained) ret paladin burst (buff sustained, inc pattern) enh/ele shaman ascendance (buff the sustained and maybe add some survivablity/utility) rogue burst in shadow dance (they have good sustained already imo but the shadow dance damage is pretty exessive this season, with shadow blades it's like 4.3 all over again...) frost mage burst is still pretty crazy, but not as bad as pre-frost bomb nerfs, boomkins have surprisingly gotten pretty strong this patch, not so much in damage (although they do have an excessive amount of cooldowns) but in healing/utility, but hey boomkins aren't that prevalent and aren't strong very often so i don't mind , DK damage definitally, they're one of the worst right now, i got hit (yes hit) for a 120k obliterate in 2's earlier, the main problem with that was the PvE trinket which recently got nerfed, but even before that they were still crazy.
