then another one and I died.
reacted slowly? I don't think you understand: none of my defensives work unless I use them PRE-EMPTIVELY, there's no reacting when you're playing a hunter, it's about prediction and planning.
Skull banner could have been down yes, but that's another instant cast off GCD skill that requires me to target and kill or predict them to drop.
My healer was out of THEIR los, not mine.
The screen was echo, I don't care if you don't believe me but trust me: I wouldn't complain if they outplayed us by getting me in a stun and hardcasted a lava burst with a surge proc at the end. I'm complaining because I had already assessed I was in danger LONG before that last lava burst was cast, made appropriate actions to mitigate any damage and still I died because roar of sac does not affect anything already cast.
This does matter and blizz has already proposed to fix it. I just didn't know about it.
