anybody remember the last xpac talent preview? many changed or got completely removed between the preview and launch.
It just seems so clunky since it replaces cobra shot. If it left cobra shot and was an additional ability, maybe, but replacing it means you HAVE to filler with it, so no quick cobras between shot cooldowns for extra focus or anything.
Will either of those be good enough to balance out the dmg boost granted from tossing your pet? We don't know yet, and I just don't feel comfortable trusting Blizzard with that.
PETLESS HUNTERS, Resubbing gg
The cast time of Snipe is nasty. You're going to naturally regain a lot of Focus during the cast. It basically demands that you completely empty your focus bar and then refill the bar with that one shot. It's restrictive not just in movement but to what I feel is a normal rotation. Having used Steady/Cobra regularly since TBC I'm not sure I can cope with Snipe as a replacement after 99 levels of having it. It's weird to rewrite our focus restoration ability as the max level ability after having already engrained the normal version in your player for so long.
It's just too severe a change. I'd much rather use Bola Shot.

Snipe is little bit stronger then Fervor. I never had any problems with Fer and focus capping, even when I was in BM spec and pet's extra 20 focus kicked in just after using Fer.
That being said, it might be not so great talent for BM hunters -> Snipe gives you around 70 focus (60 + passive focus during casting time) and if Invorgation kicks in during cast... Well, it could start to be messy.
On the other hand, Snipe is very MM-ish talent - based on weapon DMG and single (!!!!!, prob the best quality-of-life-improvement for MM) cast triggers passive haste (vs 2 back to back Steady casts). Also CA, Piercing and mastery benefits much more from hard hitting focus generator.
But I wish they would swap the level 100 talents with the level 90 talents so we can use them while leveling thru WOD. Or at least move "With or Without you" further up the tree.
Edit: I would think that Blizz would come up with some compensation for the loss of group buffs/debuffs the pet brings.

I'm pretty much guessing Bola Shot will be C/P from D3 DH's Bola Shot (so timer starts when shots hits the target).

Bola Shot as it stands now explodes after 1 second. Since we are still dealing with a global cooldown, I find it very unlikely we will ever have to worry about any of those issues. It would only matter if we shoot something from max range and shoot our next Bola against the same target almost in melee range. But I don't think even a charging Warrior will be able to cause this effect.

All 3 seems terrible in PvP imo. I really hope somehow Bola & Petless don't stay on the same line. Want both. Plz.
what if they replaced lynx rush with petless? That instantly makes BS no longer a problem, while making you choose between a meh pet with crows, no pet, or a BS buffed pet.
then we can get a different 100 talent.
"Cannot be cast while moving. Replaces Steady Shot and Cobra Shot."
Dunno if CS and SS will be still castable on the move in WoD, but I don't like losing mobility either way. Love running around just for lulz during the fight.
