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. :)

      Hello everyone.
       
      I've been playing hunter MM as my main for a while, but lately i've noticed that my DPS output might not be as high as it should. A couple of months ago, I tought it might be my ilvl or my mastery that was too low, but i've tried different builds and i still can't get closer to some other hunters I run into some ToS H pugs.
       
      I'm actually sitting at 938 iLvl. Don't have many BiS, but my stats are kinda high. My weapon relics are bad(low ilvl, i'm still stuck with 915 relics), and I still didn't get any other good legendary besides the Soul of the Huntmaster.
       
      So my question is: Am I doing something wrong or it's just my relics/trinkets that aren't very decent? I was happy when i get past the 1M dps mark, but now i'm stuck at that point, and I can't see to get past that.
       
      Here's my armory link: https://worldofwarcraft.com/pt-br/character/azralon/piccola
       
      Hopefully you guys can help me out on this. Thanks!

      Hey, so I've recently decided to main a BM hunter for the rest of legion and was just curious if there was some helpful tips out there (I've been reading up on the guides/forum posts but trying to see if I'm doing ok).
       
      this is me. https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-us/character/nagrand/greenmidget
       
      sorry, I haven't done this before so I don't have any data to link or know how to use stuff like Warcraft logs or sims. I've also haven't done many runs of tombs yet so don't have any tier pieces.

      looking at the icy veins guides I've talented for dire frenzy but didn't realise how much mastery I ended up with. Have I gone too crazy with mastery, should I be adjusting my stat prio better? Thinking I should probably gem for more haste. Most of my enchants/ gems I'm using are just ones I had the highest rank for and cheapest to make so my necklace is probably enchanted wrong.
       
      i probably specced for mostly single target and think I've been doing fairly poorly for AoE damage compared to other people around my ilvl. Although I know to use multi-shot to refresh beast cleave I probably spam multi-shot more than the 4 secs needed, don't really use dire frenzy effectively, use titan's thunder basically whenever it's off cooldown, don't really know when I'm meant to be using aspect of the wild or whether I should be using beastial wrath in AoE fights. Should I be using murder of crows in AoE fights as well or is it just a waste of focus?
       
      For single target I think I'm doing alright so far (only recently got the legendary boots so not sure how much the kill command cooldown should affect my rotation). Still don't really know when the best time is to be using aspect of the wild but I was basically doing the same as the icy veins guide. My opening sequence is usually something like Murder of crows, beastial wrath, titans thunder, then just kill command, cobra shot, kill command cobra shot etc.
       
      Looking at icy veins guide I think I'm meant to be doing murder of the crows, beastial wrath, dire frenzy, titans thunder, then another dire frenzy straight away, aspect of the wild then normal rotation. After that it's just kill command/cobra shot I guess. While beastiality wrath is in effect should I only be spamming kill command/cobra shot for the quick cooldowns or should I still be using dire frenzy during this time? I use titan thunder when it's off cooldown and dire frenzy whenever it has 2 stacks. I usually just used murder of the crows when it was off cooldown but the guide seems to indicate that I should wait the extra 30 seconds and time it with my next bestial wrath. As for aspect of the wild I usually forget I even have this move and don't use it effectively, do I wait and combined it with bestial wrath? Wait and use it when I'm low on focus? Or use it as soon as it's off cooldown?
       
      Thanks for listening to my rambling and hopefully thanks for your reply.
       
      P.S. It's probably more of a personally choice or situational choice I guess but should I be talenting myself more for AoE for mythics. Example, one with the pack, volley, aspect of the beast?

      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?
