After reading through a few places, I compiled anything we hunters might need to know. This post is a compilation from various forums but at the same time this post is not meant be detailed. As such will refer to more detailed post on the subject, so sorry if there are typos or incorrect information. If you have anything to provide please post!
Focus regenerates naturally at a basic amount of 4 Focus per second (FPS); this value is increased by haste
Hunter can also regenerate 14 Focus per hit by casting Steady Shot/Cobra Shot.
Mail Specialization - Increases your Agility by 5% while wearing Mail in all armor slots.
The GCD is 1s
All ferocity/cunning/tenacity pets do the same dps as other pets in that category (I.e a ferocity cat does the same as a ferocity monkey, but not a tenacity/cunning turtle).
Hunter pets can provide all the raid buffs and debuffs (not at once).
We can have up to 20 pets in our table, and carry 4 pets with us at 80. Only one at a time and are summoned with Call Pet. With 50 stable slots coming in 5.3.
Looks good over all, except for the attack speed buff in the buff list: All buffs that increase melee haste now increase melee and ranged attack speeds by 10%, not haste. Improved Icy Talons, Windfury totem, Hunting Party are the buffs in question; someone commented that a 20% haste buff was too good to be true, since haste will increase resource regeneration rates in Cataclysm, and Ghostcrawler agreed. And the Replenishment that Hunting Party currently gives on live has been given to Resto druids on the PTR and beta.
be better for BM? more focus = more time above the 50% focus mark where wild hunt kicks in. i get that haste is better now than it was but from what i've seen its still pretty far down the priority list.
just wondering, idrc as i took a break from raidering already. until cata drops my time will be spent screwing around in AV grinding out the last 20k HKs i need with something like this
Thanks for this, will read it after lunch. I was worried about being kinda lost after the patch, mostly due to the fact I am not on beta and my PTR client got fucked and wanted me to DL the whole 16gb again so I ingored it either.
Because unless I'm mistaken, it was a dps increase to grab it before now, and simply macro it to everything.
It doesn't do damage anymore, but it still stops the boss/mob from hurting the tank.
And from the link Vlad posted, do you have any idea how good 10% more healing is, especially when it also heals yourself?
