So here's the new PTR build discuss?  Looks like pets will have more uptime and we will have less burst.

Damn, +10% attack power? That's a fucking nice Marks buff.
Bye again! This game isn't fun when you don't know anyone else that still plays.

Pets will just port every 3 seconds when they claw and then its going to hit 50% harder than it already does.

marks/bm rbg buff, powershot nerf, marks buff (ap with iron hawk), blink strike seems more of a buff than a nerf imo, also its not something you need to manage yourself anymore- one less button to press

I might be biased, but I think there shouldn't be abilities that get rid of immunes. Why are they immunes if they can be taken off?
They should reword the tooltips to say "nearly immune, but some classes can remove it."

From reading all the notes it looks like blizz is doing a huge buff to consistent damage and reducing burst damage, could be nice imo

According to Holinka the Hunter AP buff was just a tooltip fix.


Edit: He made a mistake and the 10% buff is happening.

Why does everyone keep saying iron hawk change is a buff to MM?  It helps all 3 specs or am I crazy.


I'm thinking glaive > power shot now unless z-axis maps.

Blink strike change is an insane amount of uptime.  That's going to be a significant sustained damage buff.

Aoe buffs are pretty bigger, bigger for MM than BM since pet cleave hits for shit now anyway.

The "change" to Iron Hawk was a tooltip fix, not actually getting +10% AP

Crows is like stampede on 2 min cd, only reason not to go it now was because blink strike for 100k, but after this change it's still better. But crows 10/10 for marks/surv
