It gives me hope for my retribution Paladin, but I'd be even happier if they changed the tier set bonus to something more useful than increased damage to judgement or making things cost 1 less holy while judgement is up. /gag

Would you want a similar damage increase but a more complex bonus? Or just a higher increase of DPS?

No instant Aimed for MM Hunters again. Sad :( This would solve all MM problems at once. Have to play BM again ;(

I mean, MM isn't really in a bad place right now - almost every single top Hunter parse is MM.

Im relieved at the buff, being a since-BC ret player. 

...but this is... let's just say something will get nerfed shortly.  This is huge.  Huge baseline increase, large numbers of ability buffs...

That's right, but you have to look to your buffs and when you shoot the right shot to the right time. I don't like this a lot what the reason is, that a play BM for now. But i don't like pets an MM is really a nice spec, but difficult to master in comparison to BM. So i wait for future tunings an hopefully get back the instant aimed from the 4pc Bonus of Wrath Tier.

      Another year, another (few) hundred attempts at the Love Rocket/X-45 Heartbreaker mount for a lot of players. Love Is in the Air ended a while ago, and players have been comparing how they did in THE most arduous mount grind available in WoW today (yes, move over Invincible, you’re just a common drop in comparison).
      We have players that have been going at it for FIFTEEN years now, with no luck, running the dungeon for the mount on many different characters - but some managed to strike gold this year! So, let’s take a look at some player reactions at getting the mount, or, more likely, not.
      First we have the eternals as I call them, who have been going at it for a LONG time. Bob claims to have been trying for 20 years and still didn’t get one (but seeing as the event has only been around for 15 years, he's exaggerating a little - but it definitely feels like 2 decades), but that hasn’t stopped him from he will trying again next year.
      “Honestly - 20 years and still no drop? That’s insane. I can respect rare drops, but fuck this shit.They talk about ‘higher chance on first character’ and ‘bad luck protection’ - but it’s BS for the Love Rocket (or the new name).Edit: I’m a bit less pissed knowing there are others out there. Good luck to you all next year.“ - ItsFuckinBob
      “I've had every other holiday mount for 10+ years and yet the love rocket still eludes me. I run it on about 10 toons every day for the duration of the event for the past 15 years” - Forsaken-Let8739

      But that’s not all when it comes to rarity, as plenty of players have not only not gotten the mount, they’ve never even seen anyone get it in the many, many groups they’ve run the dungeon with! Now that’s partly due to the mount not dropping as loot directly, but it’s still pretty demotivating.
      "That's the crazy thing. In all my years running to get it, I've never seen it drop for anyone." - JayIT
      Even looking at just the current year, players are putting an insane amount of time for the mount, with no luck:
      "750 kills, 30 hours in the dungeon, no mount or saddle drop. Guess I'll just have to get it next year ?" - DeeRez

      There actually are those that do get it, and here are some that have ended their suffering this year:
      "15 years I got mine this year… 30 toons a day I did about 400 runs this year it will drop!" - jvaughn95
      "I've done it since the event was introduced into game and finally got it this year (there is hope!). I just stared blankly at the screen and very calmly said "I got it..." and my husband whirled around and was like what? the mount? YOU GOT IT! - he sounded more excited than me lol. I was just numb after years of trying. So glad!
      Now the saddle won't drop but oh well XD" - NeoSakurie

      And then, of course, there are the (much disliked) lucky ones:
      "Got mine on 2nd run.." - shittysituationz
      "I was away for work for all but 2 days of the event I have 2 max lvl toons got it day 2 ?" - sueybro
      "Ran it for years now but this year I went HARD. 14+ characters per day and I leveled 2 of them during the event! My WIFE walks in one time this event and gets it. Once. I'm not angry I love that she has it but ooooooh my goooooooood blizzard can we please just have a 500 run achievement for it or something at this point. I'm sure I'm close." - PolyWolyDoodal
      "My wife just dropped it after 3rd attempt. I am fuming." - xdCms

      And then there are people like roughschematics, who have a pretty good argument on the whole thing, trying to break the cycle of people getting more and more annoyed chasing the mount:
       
      So, how did you fare this year? How long have you been at the hunt, and when exactly did it start to annoy you? Or have you just been ignoring it entirely?

      A Hunter player had their account suspended because of their pet's default name.
      For some reason, the account was reported and suspended because the pet was named "Carrion Bird". What's both hilarious and unfortunate is that the player didn't even choose the name; it's the default name given in the game when you tame the pet.
      Hopefully, the ban will get overturned, since it's probably automated and unintended.
