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.

      So I looked around the forums and couldn't find an answer for this, figured I'd post here and if I missed the answer somewhere else, someone is bound to tell me where it is, either way. During Bestial Wrath should I be keeping up Dire frenzy as normal or should I be focusing solely on Cobra Resets and Kill Command? Also, same question for Titans Thunder.

      Hello,
      The Sworn is recruiting range DPS & Tank. We are a Horde guild on Arthas and our current progression is 7/11 Mythic Antorus. We only raid two nights a week, Tuesday and Wednesday from 9:15 PM until 12:15 AM Eastern. Currently, our main goal is to push Mythic progression & finish out the raid before next patch, please keep this in mind if you wish to join us, because we will not be doing Heroic or anything like that.
      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.
      As far as classes are concerned, at this time, we do not have ANY rogues, DPS warriors, havoc DH, or wind walkers.
      If you are interested, add me to battle tag and we will talk (violentravi#1826), I will accept mostly anyone who wants to be a bench or casual, but for raiding purposes, you must be able to provide logs.  If you cannot get ahold of me in game, I work nights, please shoot me an email, I check it at work often and I can get ahold of other officers via text/discord if it's urgent! violentnacho@gmail.com
      Thank you for your consideration
      Xoxo

      About Us
      Skunkworks is a guild for players who can not or do not want to commit to the time-intensive raid schedules of traditional "hardcore" guilds.
      However, we still maintain a high caliber player environment and make an efficient use of our raiding time.
      We raid Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7:00 - 11:00 PST, just 8 hours a week and never more.
       
      We are very protective of our guild environment and selective in recruitment. We are looking for solid players mechanically as well as intellectually.
      We all get paid to deal with idiots, why should we pay to spend our leisure time with them as well?
       
      Skunkworks has been around for multiple expansions and has historically always been at the top of the 2-night raiding guild scene.
