    MoP survival was the best.

    In spite of the ability pruning, I think Legion brought positive changes for most of the classes and specs. But hunters got the short end of the stick.

    MM is awful to play, Survival is a complete and absolute disaster and Blizz should feel bad about it, the spec is unnecesarily complicated and rewards subpar dps for a perfect rotation.

    BM with the second pet doesn´t convince me, I think I'm not alone on that.

    WoD, of course.
    Hunter is in a terribel state right now.

    WoD was by far the worst iteration of MM. Playing since vanilla, and it's the only Xpac that I swapped to BM for more than 5 minutes. Legion started off rough with the SW/Barrage build, but they have improved it greatly. Doesn't have the flow MoP and earlier build had, but I'm enjoying it. If they add a couple more abilities baseline, it could compete with the Cata/MoP versions.

    I'd rather go back to full on shot-weaving, stutter-stepping, dead-zone hunter than WoD. How people didn't fall asleep playing it, I'll never know.

    Where is the MOP option? BM and survival both felt good to play in MOP

    As someone who picked up hunter for the first time this expansion, I enjoy BM aswell as MM.
    I am a BM main and i really like the fact that I am able to perform full DPS while on the move. But I like MM too and the planning of my shots, so that i am not caught of guard casting double Aimed Shots while i have to play a mechanic.
    Am i bored of all the freedom and want to have an extra challenge? I play MM.
    Am i sick of casting Aimed Shots? I play BM.

    I never specced Surv because of melee.

    I like the legion surv, but I also miss the old one, with all the stings, black arrow, lock and load, expose weekness, and very much miss the exotic ammos. For BM I enjoy the dire frenzy spec, I never liked the wild animal thing, and bm is a nice, relaxing spec to play. Can't say anything about MM, because I rarely play/played it, and I don't like a hunter with no pet. I also miss weaving shots between auto shots, but probably I'm fairly alone with that.

    (*i am excluding onyxia, but even mm was best for that so..)


    anyway i'll throw my list out there~

    tbc: i really liked survival, but only really because it actually felt like i was helping by buffing a group. bm was just boring, and i wasn't no auto-shot macro jockey.

    wotlk: i really liked survival here too actually, bm was less boring too. but i spent most of the expansion as marksmanship just due to the ridiculous damage.

    cataclysm: mm. even when it was sit there hard-casting aimed shot. even on heroic ragnaros. i just enjoyed mm the most. couldn't get on with bm, survival.. idk, can't even remember what changed here.

    mop: i feel like this was the only expansion where hunter didn't get a complete overhaul? bm remained something i couldn't get on with, idk if mm changed. but i enjoyed survival a lot in this expansion, probably due to tier set bonuses -- oh yeah and being able to move with steady shot again ha.

    wod: ...survival had so much potential. i wanted to enjoy it. i couldn't. felt way too clunky to me. bm still something i couldn't get on with. mm was just the least worst to play - hfc tier bonus made it even less worse.

    legion: bm fun but boring. mm... i don't even know. i don't like it at all. survival, awesome, but way too many buttons and way too little synergy between abilities. feels like it could be great with some reworking. demon hunter, much more fun than the three other specs, lots of cool new zooming about abilities, while also retaining the old classics like disengage, deterrence, barrage (though that got made redundant). also added bonus of being able to tank!


    i am really glad demon hunters came about, because plain hunter is just not an enjoyable class for me this expansion. i have high hopes for survival, a melee/trap spec has been something i wanted since tbc, so seeing it become real was awesome. but good grief it needs a lot of love!

    Basically armor pen became king at TotC if I remember. Definitely stacked the ever loving shit out of it for ICC.
    If I remember right, BM was the go to for Naxx, BM/SV in Ulduar, and then MM took over as king for all the armor pen that was available. Again, I could be mixing this up, Wrath was a long time ago and it's when I started playing, so that's when I discovered things like icy veins and mmo-c and didn't know the difference between good advice and talking out your ass in forums.

    I have no issue with Survival as a Melee spec, even though I rarely play it.
    That said though, any iteration of Hunter before Legion was better. Granted Legion neutered A LOT of classes down.

  11. #31
    vulerability and single target pressure are the only things wrong with legion MM.

  12. #32
    Cata MM and MoP BM was my favourite.

    Nah, not any iteration. WoD Survival was absolute dogshit guttered crap.

    I've always enjoyed BM, but I loved how survival played prior to being melee. Especially in prior expansions. I loved lock n load explosive shot.

    MoP SV, good times.

    Cata MM and MoP surv.
    But yeah, WoD MM with classtrinket was fine gameplay-wise too.

    both suck but between the two WOD (a stubbed toe is still better than both.) but MOP or just about any WOTLK-MOP beats the hell out of the crap now IMO.

    SV was alright with the Dragon Soul 4 piece bonus during Cata. But yeah, HFC MM was the most fun I've had with any of the spec iterations. Couldn't give a shit about complexity, I just want to enjoy actually playing the character.
