Just fyi guys the ptr client downloaded a release candidate patch so it should be next week (I think it's going to drop next week) or the week after.
So save your VP etc.
Not to mention you use BW to break stuns so even if you did get stunned straight away (which is unlikely since they've just stunned you) it will be half dr and trinketable.
That being said, Ret and Mages are seemingly godly on the ptr and Shamans are very strong.
I dont get how BM hunters are getting all these nerfs and Mages are left compelely alone... Mages have just as much CC as hunters and even more burst. I know BM is strong, but it has to be in order to compete with classes like the mage. Yes, mages have to cast polymorph, but they can spam that shit all day. Counterspell also lasts 1 sec longer than silencing shot, deep is 5 secs! or 4 if glyphed but not on GCD, RoF or Frostjaw, 2 aoe roots, and ridiculous burst damage. Im not saying mages need to be nerfed to the ground, which i know they wont do, but BM should not be nerfed so heavily and mages should def be looked at.
Also you are completely ignoring the fact that they just got a couple nerfs.
So for the people who use these abilities get a 5% loss in spell power mitigation paired with a 15% damage loss (from burst, not sure about sustained) which are both pretty huge.Originally Posted by Blizzard Entertainment
But i realy dont understand why blizzard doesnt change the scatter shot too also work as interupt on the immune mobs.
It SEEMS that some very important PvE spells aren't being changed though- turtle/beetle's shield 50% raid wall, tenacity's last stand, and Cower aren't getting a CD reduction. Overall pet survivability is a nerf.
I feel like with the 10% buff and the addition of Blink Strikes hunters will be in a fairly good spot PvE wise (BM moreso), obviously not topping meters but will definitely see a noticeable dps increase.
I can't wait for 5.3, because these buffs + 3k valor worth of upgrades, every hunter raiding heroics should see a significant increase in dps.
I'm worried about blink strikes causing the pet to do stupid stuff and despawn or get stuck in places easier. There are alot of mechanics or platforms in this game that are not friendly to pets and I can imagine it happening not just in this tier but in the future raiding / dungeon content aswell.
don't remind me about pets and durumu i still got safari nightmares from that one -_- stupid big hitbox

Just for your information : blink strike only works on spell like "bite" not the pet auto attacks.
Being homophobic is so gay.
is like those retards hunters asking for nerf to BM so they can play MM. really, if you want to play MM or SV in pvp or pve whats stoping you?
i saw Kripparian playing BM in firelands and he would beat out MM hunters when BM was "Worthless" most of the time isnt the spec that is holding you.

PvE buffs, PvP nerfs.
Fine by me, because I can't be arsed with PvP. A lot of it is just making sure that one spec doesn't get big advantages over the others in PvP, like BM clearly had (hence the nerfs).
Some legit PvE buffs in there. Blink Strikes looks good now. Extra attack power from AotH is always welcome. Beast Cleave might change BM AoE from "ooh, that tickles" to something worth casting Multi-Shot for.
How many folks are going to switch to SV for pvp, now that all specs get intimidation?

Benevolence is a luxury for the strong - Wrathion
Next time you guys log in, Blizzard should freeze your character, spawn your favourite mount and shoot it in the head. - Mormolyce
Intimidation isn't baseline, it's a talent in the same tier as Silencing Shot (i.e., it will never be used again).
Unless they very recently changed that.
