    You get 5% and you get 5% and you loose 5%.

    Wow, brilliant balancing. Really seems like they tuned each spec in detail. Can't imagine the effort that went into that.

    I am actually confused. I thought Demon locks were doing great? Why the buff O.o Also.. BM Hunters damage reduced by 5% can we not have nice things anymore?

    And let's not forget the classes that seem to have been ignored, Bal Druids mainly.

    Blizz dosen't realise that 5% over and over dosen't do jack sheet, needs to be something like 30 or 50%

    I am unfamiliar with the other specs but destro definitely needs more than 5%, I agree

    Demo locks are currently the second worst class of all, only topped by fire mage. Even the class that currently comes before them (Feral) does significantly more damage than them. I am not even sure 5% buff will really help to be honest.

    Ah the typical Healing Rain Buff... never saw that coming.... what a joke. These class designers are so damn lazy.

    The Only people enjoying BM being ridiculously overpowered are bad players. Saying can't have nice things meaning you want to be OP...

    Hope you get even more nerfs. You deserve it!

    Kinda stupid they didn't nerf Havoc DH at all. They're absolutely annihilating the charts.

    Feral isn't rock bottom. It's low, but not rock bottom.

    That's kinda sad that Demo isn't doing to great despite it being seriously fun.

    5% here and there, small indie company balancing.

    5%. 5%. 5%. 6%!. Yeah obviously just looking at Uldir Warcraftlogs and just guessing how much they should buff/nerf each spec by how big and small the bars are.

    Seriously, what is with all the outlaw nerfs. Come on! A flat 5% damage nerf. What the actual heck? Nothing but nerf bat after nerf bat. Its getting ridiculous. They already ruined feral for me, I don't want the only other spec im enjoying ruined too.

    Well, sure, that'd make sense, if it weren't for some key points:

    1) most people who have mained hunters in the past have done so enjoying the ranged playstyle of the class.

    2) they made survival melee, which is fine, but for the majority of hunters, not necessarily what they wanted out of their class.

    3) this expansion they ALSO gutted and significantly altered marksmanship, to such a degree that there is close to ZERO chance they will be competitive compared to BM until significant changes are made.

    Your "only people who play bm are bad players" argument would make sense if it wasn't the ONLY option for hunters who never wanted to play a melee. But sure, go ahead and spout your ignorance.
