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. :)

      Hey everyone, I thought I would post up my deck. Its nothing crazy new, just a revamped secrets deck for the new expansion and is working fairly well for me. 

      http://www.hearthpwn.com/deckbuilder/hunter#8:2;99:2;163:2;210:1;344:2;363:2;447:1;483:2;553:2;578:2;42021:1;42050:2;42051:2;58724:1;61819:1;61827:2;62837:1;62854:2;

      <Trust> may be what you're looking for if you enjoy killing internet dragons with a group of like minded players! Currently we are 8/9 Heroic, soon to be stepping into Mythic ToS. We are recruiting to finish rounding out our raid team. <Trust> is located on the [US] Doomhammer/Baelgun pve servers, alliance side! Check us out!
       
      About Us:
      <Trust> is a recently formed guild, founded by a group of long time players that have been raiding together for a couple of years now. Founded out of a desire to continue raiding in a casual-progression manner, we work towards defeating mythic bosses. <Trust> is a raiding guild, first and foremost.
       
      Our Raids:
      <Trust> maintains a progression-oriented 2-day semi-casual raiding team. That's 'semi' as in we expect our team members to always prioritize life first; but not 'casual' as in we take downing bosses less seriously. We strive to maintain a balance of taking our progression raids seriously while having plenty of laughs along the way.
       
      Raid Schedule:
      Tuesday & Thursday: 5p – 8p server (8p – 11p eastern)
      Friday(optional): 5p – 8p server (8p – 11p eastern)
       
      Recruitment:
      <Trust> is looking for full time Resto Druid, Mages, Hunters, and Warlocks for our raid team. We are also open for good people to join as casual players, pvpers, with the option to join farm content or alt raids.
       
      More Info:
      Feel free to reach out to us:
      Recruitment Officer:
      In game - Treylawny
      Battletag - Treylawny#1813
       
      Guild Lead:
      In game – Oleic
      Battletag - Jarg#1591
       
      -OR-
       
      Website and Application: <Trust> (US)Doomhammer/Baelgun
      (The app is quick and painless as its used primarily to get your name to us quickly!)
       
      Discord is our way of communicating during raid; also used for casual chatting!

      2x Alleycat 1x Emerald Reaver 2x Fiery Bat 2x Fire Fly 2x Jeweled Macaw 2x Raptor Hatchling 1x Stampede 1x The Marsh Queen 2x Tracking 2x Crackling Razormaw 2x Scavenging Hyena 1x Deadly Shot 2x Kill Command 2x Stitched Tracker 1x Cult Master 2x Houndmaster 1x Tol'vir Warden 1x Tundra Rhino 1x Deathstalker Rexxar
      Here's my current take on the quest Hunter. Stitched Tracker and Build-A-Beast in my eyes have really given Hunter some good and greatly needed flexibility. The ability to create an extra Tol'vir Warden, Tundra Rhino, Hyena, or Cult Master, or any of the various 1 drops needed for the quest allow for a nice range of minions without having to worry about getting that one draw you need to combo. Build-A-Beast is such a fantastic ability and the AOE that Deathstalker Rexxar gives is a very welcome addition. While a little expensive Exploding Bloatbat + anything with charge, preferably a Boar, gives Hunter a nice suicide bomb. Alternatively Hyena + anything with Stealth is a great way to safely build up lethal, or a Stealth Rhino to consistently hurl charge raptors at your opponent's face.  

      This deck is by no means perfect, but it's a hell of a lot of fun to play in its current iteration. I'm open to any suggestions or criticisms about how to make this more viable.

      All applications will be reviewed and considered however if you are playing a class/spec combination we need then your chances of joining will be higher.
      A little bit of info about us:
      We are a group of friends and serious raiders on EU Twisting Nether looking to recruit skilled like-minded players into our roster for Mythic Legion raids and onwards. We will offer a sociable and fun raiding environment while maintaining a strong desire for progression. Our Discord is very active and we encourage all members to chat and play together not only for raids. The guild formed late March 2016 and fully cleared 13/13 Mythic Hellfire Citadel pre nerf shortly after. We've since been improving our world ranking every tier.
      We currently raid 3 days per week on Mythic: Wednesday, Sunday and Tuesday 19:15-22:15 server time. While it is not a lot we try to make the most out of our time. We run optional heroic/normal/alt/previous tier raids during off days in which raiders are welcome to come to. Our members also play other games outside raid times together where anyone is welcome to join(LoL, Dota, HotS, Overwatch etc.).
      Our loot system for Mythic is RC Loot Council.
      What we expect from you:
      - We are a raiding guild with only a 9 hour per week schedule so you are expected to attend and be ON TIME! However we understand things can come up sometimes but please let us know.
      - Be able to speak and understand the English language and not be afraid to communicate with other members during raids.
      - Actively doing dungeons/world quests to improve your gear and 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 and a good, stable internet connection.
      - Exorsus Raid Tools, Weakauras2 and RC Loot Council addons installed. We may ask you to install others.
