    [MM] Old Steady Shot vs new Arcane Shot, which did you prefer?

    As the title asks, which focus generator did you guys enjoy more?

    Personally it took me a while to start to enjoy Arcane Shot with legion's global cooldown, but now that I've grown accustomed to it, I don't see it as I used to (clunky). However, I do miss Steady shot too, especially back when it was castable while moving.
    Let's get a discussion going.

    I prefer arcane shot

    Now blizz only need to do a set that makes aimed shot be instant cast (again) and MN will become my fav spec for the whole legion.

    I prefer Steady Shot, makes the rotation feel better than the instant wed noodle that is Arcane Shot (not that Steady Shot hit like a truck or anything). The only thing we cast now is Aimed Shot and the rest is instant cast, gives a kinda empty feeling imo. (I also don't like the vulnerable mechanic and Marked Shot feels like a bad replacement for Chimaera Shot and I have no clue why they fucked Black Arrow so badly.. One of my favorite skills, just like Explosive Shot and now they are both trash).

    I can remember when I first unlocked the skill back in TBH, that was the shit back then for me, and now all that is gone. Hunter isn't really Hunter anymore in my eyes...

    Survival is a nice change of pace but unfortunately they messed that up as well.

    I like the current version, making your resource generation linked with movement didn't promote good play

    Steady shot 100%, feels less spammy and it would bring back arcane shot as a mobile focus dump, hopefully. And chimera/killshot...

    Steady shot was useable on the move with aspect of the fox, and then baseline for the entire time we've had focus, im pretty sure.

    Steady shot became castable while moving in MoP, in Cata you had to stand still.

    I liked (castable while moving) steady shot better for whatever reason, felt less spammy i guess. I also liked (castable while moving) aimed shots better. I pretty much liked the pre-legion mm better (with or without the hfc tier instant aimeds).

    I'd prefer Steady Shot, if it gave more Focus than Arcane Shot does. That way it would feel less clicky.

    I think Arcane Shot feels better.

    Steady shot with instant aim shot gave me the best feeling, back in Firelands, MM was really fun for me.
    This vulnerable/marked shot mechanic has potential but it seems very clunky and sometimes even boring, needs work.

    Now that I think about it.. I did prefer Steady Shot... Arcane being instanced to generate Focus just hurts my brain.

    Steady shot is better. I can't stand the spammy arcane we have now.

    You can make WA that makes 1.5 sec cast bar after you press Arcane Shot. If you press Arcane Shot every 1.5sec you have same feeling like Steady Shot. Simple solution.

    Steady Shot was better, less spammy, generated more focus. Along with Aimed Shot castable on the move it was really good combination. Those days were MM's best...

    Legion MM mechanics just suck.

    Its more the idea that you stand still to use focus generators, and have mobility for focus spenders.

    I prefer SS while moving and AiS instant. Feels smoother imo :>

    So long as we don't go back to cast time generator, cast time spender... It was so damned annoying when you needed that burst NOW, sorry you're casting Steady to pay for it, especially during the retardation of "Cast it twice because your haste levels are shit, too bad if you don't need the focus".
