    No changes latest ptr update.

    Blizzard logic: Buff warlocks (the most overpowered class all expansion), continue to provide 'buffs' which are a slap in the face to certain classes as you have removed/nerfed them greatly in other areas.

    I can't believe this is even happening lol, obviously i play a hunter and we have just been shat on. Now our rotation includes a lot more cobra shots because we are focus starved due to them starting off by buffing the arcane shot damage and doubling the focus cost, then removing the damage portion and leaving the high focus cost. Readiness gone due to pvpers crying, slight buffs to our signature shots that are nowhere near enough to bring us to a competitive amount. The only 'good' buffs are stampede back to 100% damage (which we had prior, plus the pets abilities) and the amoc 40% buff (which is worse then live anyway because we cant double up at the start with readiness. I seriously hope they do a PROPER buff before this goes live and not a mid tier (after we have already cleared content) +5% aspect buff again.

    Don't worry guys we'll get buffed once the progression race is over and there's no point to the buffs with a promise to fix us in 6.0. I mean that's what they said when mop was announced and now look at us!

    I had to respond to this since I didn't believe you were serious at first....so I'll just fill you in on a little history dating back to Wrath of the Lich King Hunters.

    Back in Wrath Hunters would Macro Silencing Shot and Kill Command into their spells because they weren't on the global cool down and had little to no resource cost. It was basically free damage for just macro'ing the shot into your other spells.

    Then we got Focus, and Kill Command was on the Global....it took about 2 seconds to realize that MM/Survival Hunters will no longer be using this spell in a PVE environment because A) it has a high focus cost and B) it does crap damage for them.

    Kill Command has its uses in PVP for the more hunter reliant specs, but thats why there are two tooltips. It would be just a tad bit unfair in PVP if a Survival or MM hunter could bust out a KC from a pet that hits just as hard as say Chimera Shot, AiS or ES....Plus that would make Hunters even more OP in PVP...and we'd be nerfed more in PvE #MoPHunterLife

    Kill command will stay BM exclusive. That is just a side effect of the datamining as every spec used to have it during cata.

    I dont understand how AMoC got a 40% buff because it was affected by the loss of rediness and Lynx Rush gets no buff? Lynx Rush was already the weakest talent of the tier and now with the loss of rediness it also cant be reset, so why doesnt it get atleast a 30% buff too? On that note Exhilaration should have received a 40% buff due to the loss of rediness especially since it's the least used talent in that tier. If a single big heal is too strong add a 40% hot onto the ability. The inconsistency in blizzard's logic confuses the shit out of me! The "compensation" for rediness was not fully thought out IMO.

    Exhil is primarily used in PvP where, as a class, we are doing too well. Not giving exhil a 40% buff would actually be a PvP nerf, which, IMHO, is more then fine. PvE stays intact, PvP suffers blow.

    For instance, I'm not quite sure why Readiness had to go, instead snare/CC breaker on BW. If Readiness is such a problem, remove it in 6.0, but not deep in expansion and especially not in the same patch where we also gets "focus capping adjustments" (which alone is a huge thing).

    Umm no one uses Exhilaration in rated PVP. AotIH is the goto talent just like PVE, since it's affected by Battle Fatigue. The only time it's taken is for random BGs/dueling/soloing (Brawler's).

I obviously failed).
    ROFL. You are conceited on such a level it is beyond ridiculous. Yes....the change was -all- thanks to YOU, what a ridiculous post, as are a lot of the posts from you on the D&R/etc forums.

    I wonder how people like GC and Pardo react to the incessant demands by a small vocal minority. Kids who throw violent tantrums get ignored or even punished by their parents, so how is this any different? I would hate for the class as a whole to be punished because Subrosian constantly harasses the lead devs.

    Yeah I was wondering about LR and Exhil. I'm of the opinion though that Blizzard devs really don't give a fuck about the hunter community anyway.

    I'm also of the opinion that they despise hunters. Blizzard is a business and everyone knows that businesses that intentionally ignore and screw over a huge portion of their customers are always the most successful.


    FYI: Hunters are the #1 class in terms of max level population (both US and EU)..... I'm sure Blizzard just can't wait to upset them even more.

    /sarcasm

    -----------------------

    I really wonder why some people (Subrosian, Namarus, Kibu, etc...) even plan the game anymore??? They just seem to hate everything about hunters (and Blizzard itself) for the last couple of years. Go find something else to do that you enjoy if this game upsets you so much.

    I'd bet that they don't hate Hunters, or the game. I'd also say that they're more passionate about the Hunter class than most people. I know I'm disappointed and underwhelmed when I play my Hunter. I often think I should just roll a Mage and be done with it because historically, they've never been bad in PvE, and I don't ever see them being bad at any point in time for PvE.

    What I am, and I think others are too, is disappointed. I love playing my Hunter, despite the lack of depth and low skillcap, it's an extremely fun class to play. I just want more for it. I don't care about utility and I don't want a CD (I think offensive CDs except for lust really just need to be taken away from every class.) It would be nice if they took the time to just actually fix our scaling, make us truly viable in progression, and above all else fix our pets.

    It's hard to be positive and not sound rude when you see the attention and treatment other classes get and how little they give to Hunters.

    I don't want to put words in their mouths (at least not to the obscene extent that you are), but I don't believe in the slightest that any of the players you mentioned hate the hunter class. They seem to enjoy it and are very passionate about it, which is why they hate what Blizzard is (or isn't) doing to it.

    Here we have a dps class that has scaled like shit and had balance issues for years, and the problem isn't even a very difficult one to solve, and the development team mostly ignores it, giving it attention occasionally only to put in a half-assed temporary fix that makes things even worse in the long run.

    Precisely, they have time to spend on Virtual realms, when just merging realms would fix the issue.

    They don't however have the time to fix a class that has been fundamentally broken for the whole expansion. Oh wait the 2 mins they spent with the Aspect of the Hawk hot fix ... Hunters rejoice!

    I'm wondering if any attention could be gained by posting a "NERF ASPECT OF THE HAWK" post on the official forums somewhere.

    "To the ground, baby!" Seriously, just get rid of that skill entirely.

    Sigh, after reading this thread looks like ill be sticking to my lock. Guild asked me to play my hunter since we had two locks in our 10m and they wanted to get a few buffs in with the pets. After reading all of this seems that it will not be worth it.

  18. #558
    Even if the gap between warlock and hunter isn't going to change from 5.3 to 5.4 (it almost certainly will), and 2 warlocks didn't have to share gear along with probably at least 1 more person in the raid (they do), the difference between having and not having a valuable raid buff is probably larger than the damage gap. And the less progression-oriented your guild is, the less any of it makes any difference at all and you should probably just play what you enjoy.

    You forgot Nemesis003. Hates the class with a passion, complained about it multiple times a day, played it anyway.

    Did he get banned or something? Haven't seen him around in a while.

    I think he quit the game.
