MM: How is barrage after nerf?

10 posts in this topic

It appears that Barrage is nerfed heavily.

Volley does more sustained AOE damage on stacked targets, but it's an unlikely scenario, so Barrage will still be better when you need AOE burst or to cleave spread out targets.

AMoC now does more purely single target damage, and you can get even more out of it by fishing for those cooldown resets. It's also an instant, costs less focus and has a longer cooldown, so easier to manage.

Basically blizzard is again forcing us into a bad situation of having to change talents before each boss, only now it costs a ludicrous amount of gold, unless you have a friendly warlock.

So we are fucked ? I can't believe Blizzard is doing this to us I really don't want to switch to BM or SV or another class at all.

Why is everyone the sky is falling? First a blanket aoe should not be part of a single target cooldown, sorry that just my belief. Maybe it should have just been 10% or teh @0% with a slight buff to something else. Second i will be keeping barage for several fights just for blanket aoe misdirects.

Ursoc and Nyth maybe MOC.  As for switching specs? Get used to it and quit crying. I feel that anyone crying about 15k difference, probably doesn't even launch a binding shot in a raid or mythic+ to help trash and adds.

 

Needed to be nerfed though, should never have been first priority on single target.

You will have to adjust talents on some of the progression fights instead of just using Barrage all the time. That's the only consequence.

This.  

It's not fair to get upset when Blizz brings three talents so closely in line that there isn't a clear winner in every situation.  Choices, am I right?  And, you know, since they ARE so close, you might consider sticking with the one you enjoy the most.

Uh, what? There is a clear winner, it's just different for every fight. 

Pure single target or priority adds - AMoC.

Sustained stacked AOE - Volley.

Burst or spread out AOE - Barrage.

Though in case of pure single target patchwerk fight it might be worth switching to SV, which does about ~10% higher single target DPS.

This is all correct, sorry for not being clear.

I mean there is not a single talent choice that will outperform the others ACROSS all fights.  Instead of switching to the best theorteical DPS talent for that individual fight, you could stick with the one you enjoy the most since they're so close in DPS.

It's not even that huge a deal. The order most raids are going is:

Nethendra> Ursoc - No adds so Murder of crows

Then the feild> Dragons> Tree> Spider Roc> Cenarius> Xavius all add fights. 

 

I spend 10k+ a night raiding > 1 clear mind for 300G isn't going to break the bank.

No veteran Hunter here, but i agree with the last posts above, basically i'm doing this:

Pure ST raid/M/M+ bosses: AMoC

M/M+ trash pulls only : Volley (as i do not like the thrill of mass pulling risk all the time)

Raid fights with any adds/raid thrash/questing and basically all the rest: Barrage

Frankly speaking i do not like much AMoC or Volley because i find Barrage super fun to use,

but quality of life for me and those i'm playing with is worth more than the visual boldness of the spell itself ;)

Only "limit" to this is moneywise, as self buffing and Tomes are quite expensive atm

      - 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.

      Hello follow hunters and others,
      Tonight i was blessed by getting my BiS legendary, The Mantle of Command. As happy as i was, i discovered that my dps waas quite a bit lower on ST(single target) while in the guide, it says it should be best/good for ST aswell. So i wondered why that was. Asking a guildmate, that also plays BM, he said that i might need to swap my stat prio. However, and this is where i ask you guys the question, what are those stat prio and what should i change in my sim values (using the standard ones now).

      Sindorei Council, a family-friendly and socially active guild has been active since 7/24/2007 (BC drop), currently 7/7 (H)EN, 2/3 (H)ToV, and 10/10, 3/10(H) NH.  Seeking DPS (notably ranged) for completion of Heroic and preparation for 7.2.    
      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 our current raid progression on essentially 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 push people to have fun in guild, raiding or not ( be it through Questing, M+, WQ's, Roics, Pet Battles, etc.). We know our members' backstories 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 (H)EN, 2/3 (H)ToV, 10/10 NH, 3/10 (H)NH
      Loot:  All Personal - hand down to people who need 
      NEEDS: 
      - SPriest
      - Boomkin
      - Hunter
      - 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!
