Patchnotes 7.3: What my Hunter personalities think about it

5 posts in this topic

Hunter:

The Porcupine family has been re-named to Rodent.

 

MM: "Haha, thank god they changed nothing. Just be quiet, just be quiet!"

Survival: "We need a buff. I will team up with my other survival homies and... damn it, is there no one else playing survival?"

BM: "What the f*ck is goin' on?"

 

What do you think about the patchnotes?

Will there be a compensation with the new artifact system?

What did the Porcupines do wrong?

 

Greetings

Lemmi

PS: Found an interesting blue post Netherlight Crucible

As i stated before, since the game play of wow moved away from 1 button spam BM has always had issues with scaling. From WOTLK, the first tier BM was strong or "alright" but by the end of the expansion it had fallen far behind. This has always been the case. It is because of scaling, especially weapon damage.  Blizzard should add weapon damage to the pet damage formula, nothing else will fix the issue. 

In the end, from what i can see, the gap between MM and BM is going to get larger in ToS after this patch unfolds.   After a year of this, i doubt there is anything in Argus' Raid that is going to change this.

Not only did they change nothing at all, they also had a 4% buff to BM in the PTR that got cut because it's only going to be added once the Crucible opens (in two more weeks). The reasoning being that the weapon item level scaling of BM is trash so it needs a buff to offset how useless the +15 item level effect on the Crucible will be for BM. However, this means they have no intention of buffing BM, only hotfixing it so it stays where it is. There was a similar issue with one of the Rogue specs as far as I know.

There should be some significant class changes when patch 7.3.5 drops, but that's 11 weeks away. Marksmanship should see some changes, because the tier 21 bonus makes no sense for the current build. I'd be surprised if they do anything to improve BM or Surv for the what's left of the expansion.

I was under the impression BM was receiving a 6% aura buff, do you have a link to show where they're not getting any changes or that things are being moved around?

First off, the 6% aura buff already exists, it was added in 7.1.5. The "new" buff was raising that same aura to 10%, which is really a 3.77% overall damage increase, not a 4% buff, but round up for simplification. It was 10% during the PTR because the crucible was active in the PTR.

Click the link Lemmi posted about the Netherlight Crucible, it's a blue post explaining that the above described buff is only intended to go live once the crucible is up, because the crucible gives you +15 weapon levels and BM output doesn't scale well with weapon item level. It's not a real comparative buff, it's only a hotfix to keep the crucible buff in line with other classes.

      Hi and, first of all, thanks for your time. 
      I´m back to WoW after around 3 years, and I´m feeling quite confused yet. My main is a Hunter. I left it during WoD as a BM. Now I´m back, still with WoD expansion, and I feel the class has changed a LOT. No traps, quite a different composition, etc. 
      I´d like some help in order to set my talents and rotations. My intention atm, as lvl 100, is to finish questing Draenor (still quite a bit to do here) and then buy Legion and try to level up before the expansion comes. I like soloing (I guess BM should be my choice, but I´m here to hear your opinions!!) and I´ll try to avoid skipping content. I´m not in a hurry, just want to enjoy the whole lore-and-questing all the way up.
      Thanks again for your help!!!!

      Hello,
      The Sworn is recruiting DPS.  We are a Horde guild on Arthas and our current progression is 4/9 Mythic TOS.  We only raid two nights a week, Tuesday and Wednesday from 9:05 PM until 12:05 AM Eastern.  Currently, our main goal is to push Mythis TOS progression versus clearing farmed content, please keep this in mind if you wish to join us.
      From you, we would expect 100% attendance during your trial period; after that if you cannot make a raid or will be late it is mandatory to keep the raid leader updated.  In order to continue making good progression while raiding only two nights a week, we expect that you know your class inside-out and will research any bosses you are unfamiliar with prior to raids.
       If you are interested, you can either reply to this thread and link your most recent combat logs for review or hit me up on battlenet, Violentnacho, recruiting officer (violentravi#1826.
      Thank you for your consideration
      Xoxo

      According to Azortharion simulations, our best for Antorus will be Qapla/Soul+Dire Frenzy/OWTP , ¿what stats need this build? At this moment, we need Mastery/Haste for Dire Frenzy build and Critical/Haste for OWTP build: therefore, they are mutually exclusive, right?  Or at least I understand that.
      So, ¿what stats?

      Looking for some advice about how to improve my DPS - I should be doing better than this I feel (using stomp build). My guild only raided NH HC and I got to the point where new gear was out-doing the 2pc 895 tier 19 set I had, which is why I'm not using 2pc tier 19 atm. If this was the wrong choice and I'm better dropping my ilevel to go back to it please let me know. I have most BM Leggos so again if I'm using the wrong combo please advise me. I would like to tweak my stats but not sure what gear would do me better than what I have. Any help you can give me would be so much appreciated.
