Lvl 100 hunter talents-lackluster?

8 posts in this topic

If you have not seen WoD lvl 100 talents, it is on wowhead for you to see. When I was reading the level 100 talents for hunters, I was excited for them because they looked pretty good. Then, I began looking around the other classes talents. Mages are summoning massive & powerful meteors, monks and rogues are flying around and doing massive damage, and what do hunters get? A talent that replaces arcane shot, a talent that replaces steady and cobra shot, and a talent that either makes you more powerful without your pet or gives you skills from all pet skill trees. Am I the only one that sees this as being a little bit unfair? All classes are getting game changers and op moves and we get the option to lose what makes hunters unique and different, the ranged moves we have liked having for so long or our beloved pets for a bonus to our power, making most talents broken and meaningless. Thoughts?

To me, I love the fact they are replacing shots and giving us better ones. With our choice ofc.

 

We already have stampede and some other amazing moves and they haven't said they wont be adding other big abilities for us to keep.

 

For the amount of buttons we have, I know a good few players would enjoy having less buttons to worry about. [i'm contrary to that as the skill required to play well will show, but with so many buttons, there is less room for the skill to show through]

 

I love the talents, who cares if others are getting big ass cd's and meteors ... we get to keep all our awesome abilities and play the way we want to.

Bola shot seems really interesting, an AoE arcane shot. Really good for SV, adds to the multi target ability of any spec.

Snipe is just no. Almost twice the cast time of the shot it replaces, and you have to stand still to cast it. That and it gives back so much focus that you practically need to be empty for focus not to be wasted.

With or without you seems like the go to talent. A big increase in damage for MM and SV, saw somewhere that it would be about a 10-15% dps increase. For BM, you get all pet specs in one. Honestly don't know how much of a help this will be in a raid, but it will definitely help in solo content.

I am looking forward to Snipe actually, puts the skill back into positioning and playing and, fingers crossed, gives you a dps reward for doing it successfully.

Well, look at that tool tip again. :) Not only do you get the benefits of all the pet spec abilities, but you'll also see there that your pet get's a 70% DPS increase. Now, I "assume" that will apply to all pets - even the ones summoned via Dire Beast and Stampede. And for BM, that will be HUGE. :D

True, forgot about that. This is a huge dps increase. Currently my pet deals almost half of my overall damage (without blink strikes, need to switc that and try it out), and giving it a 70% increase is an insane damage increase. As for dire wolf, if it does increase it's damage, great, a bit more damage on a fairly low cd. For stampede it will be a smaller overall bonus because of the long cd, but still a bonus. Like I said, definitely the go to talent.

It's NOT a 70% damage icnrease  It says it "increases your pet's Combat Expereince to be 70%".  Right now, Combat Experience is a 50% passive damage buff.  The new talent increases that passive buff to 70%, which translates to a 13% overall Pet Damage increase (170%/150%)

Ahhh... got it now. Totally spaced it on that aspect. Well then, not as huge as I had thought. Still, looks like it will be a good talent and personally, I'm looking forward to trying SV out without a pet. :)

      All applications will be reviewed and considered however if you are playing a class/spec combination we need then your chances of joining will be higher.
      A little bit of info about us:
      We are a group of friends and serious raiders on EU Twisting Nether looking to recruit skilled like-minded players into our roster for Mythic Legion raids. We will offer a sociable and fun raiding environment while maintaining a strong desire for progression. Our Discord is very active and we encourage all members to chat and play together not only for raids.

      We currently raid Wednesday, Sunday and Tuesday 19:00-22:00 server time. We run social/alt raids during off days in which all ranks of the guild are welcome to come to. Our members also play other games outside raid times together where anyone is also welcome to join(LoL, Dota, HotS, Overwatch etc.).
      Our loot system for Mythic is RC Loot Council.
      What we expect from you:
      - We are a raiding guild with a 3 days a week schedule that you are expected to attend. However we understand things can come up but please let us know.
      - Be able to speak and understand the English language and not be afraid to communicate with other members during raids.
      - Actively doing dungeons and world quests to gear in preparation for raids. This includes improving your artifact weapon.
      - Have a strong understanding of the current raid tier and be able to play your class to it's potential.
      - Always come to raids prepared (i.e. bringing food and potions, etc).
      - Come fully gemmed and enchanted with the correct stats for your class and spec.
      - Access to Discord and a working microphone.
      - Have a computer that can handle 20 man raiding.
      - Exorsus Raid Tools and RC Loot Council addons installed. We may ask you to install others.
      ____________________________________________________
      To join into our current main raids
      - 865 ilvl
      - 25 traits at the very least.
      - Experience on 4 or more bosses in EN Mythic.
      You will receive a response within 3 days but probably within 1. The trial process will last 2 weeks, sometimes longer. During the trial period you will not have loot priority over raiders however you may of course still roll.
      If you have any further questions please contact us at battletags: Vims#21684  or go to our website http://asylum-tn.enjin.com/ .

      Sindorei Council, a family-friendly and socially active guild has been active since 7/24/2007 (BC drop), currently 6/7 (H)EN.  Seeking DPS (notably ranged) for completion of Heroic and preparation to move on Nighthold.  
      We are not a hardcore progression guild - have never been and don't seek to create that atmosphere.  We are an incredibly welcoming social guild with a core raid component of very skilled players who have enough real-life going on that one night/week (occasionally 2) is what we push for.   We've reached 6/7 H-EN on one night/week. 
      Are you a good fit?  If you enjoy playing your class very well, are reliable to be on at the given time(s), yearn for a fun PG atmosphere in Gchat and Discord with mostly adults, and feel like one (occasionally 2) night per week is ideal for the time you want to put into raiding then we may be a good fit for you.  We help others get better and have more fun in guild, raiding or not ( be it through Questing, M+, WQ's, Roics, Pet Battles, etc.). We know our members' backstory and strive to make our guild a family.  Very active FB page and Discord.  
      Schedule:   Current main core raid night is Thursday from 7:30 EST - 10:30 EST (Bloodhoof Server time).  Sunday nights are an alternative night for us.
      Progress:  7/7 (N) EN, 5/7 (H) EN
      Loot:  All Personal - hand down to people who need 
      NEEDS: 
      - Warlock (any spec)
      - Boomkin
      - Hunter
      - Arms Warrior w/ Prot offspec (another skilled dps that is comfortable off spec as Tank works well also (Feral/Guardian, WW/BM, etc.)
      Interested?:
      BTAG: Lorienawk#1319 or Mango#1525.  
      Thanks and Happy Hunting!
