The 10% AP buff isn't a tooltip fix unless i fail at basic maths.

On live as MM atm Aspect of the Hawk/Iron Hawk gives me 4500 AP from 29,900 to 34,400 (roughly) Wich is a 15% increase.

Lynx Rush > Crows and Blink Strike for MM imo.

It does like double the damage over half the duration. And blink strike sucks because it's not more damage than arcane shot so it's just a waste of a global.
Bye again! This game isn't fun when you don't know anyone else that still plays.

It's not about the damage sometimes - it is more to damage your target while he LoS you or get your pet next to target to prevent ,for example , restealth. Another great benefit is that your pet instantly connects to your target allowing you to growl to take grounding or even simply get closer to a target to allow you to use your pet CC(since it's 20yd range for Crane/Monkey stun)

P.S. This was about using Blnk strike as MM - for BM the damage is main reason, ofc^^.

I do suck at math but it's the same for me.

I don't think its a tooltip change.

So bm has two buttons now. Cool.

that is exactly what i thought as well...

and glaive toss will never be better than powershot.

25% of 150-190k is still a big fucking number. sustained damage only beats good players if you're playing like aff loc/dk.

they'll never give us enough sustained damage that a healer can't heal it


Sometimes I feel like half of you play a different class than me :x

Blink strike definitely does hit harder than arcane shot. It also costs 0 focus and can be used out of line of sight of the target.
Hunters, least represented for 4 seasons.  Average for one.  Here comes the 5th at the bottom, and we're worse than ever.

Blizz sure learns fast.

Marksman is already pretty bursty with the instant aimed shots and chimera shots it also is one of the best specs u can have to switch with.

Have any of you guys even tried it?

As MM it's like 20% more, and it's still half the damage of Chimera or Aimed. Lynx Rush ticks for ~40% of a blink strike every 3 seconds, and you can do other damage at the same time.

The focus and LOS benefits are there, but the target would have to get away with less than 5% HP with no heals/shields for that to actually affect a game.

That being said, I'm almost certainly going to take the new blink strike every time. No global is very important to me b/c imo it's most important to get all your meaningful damage out in the shortest time possible. I don't think it's very important to keep doing more damage than auto+steady for an extended period of time.

And don't get me wrong, Lynx Rush isn't anything special, but it's the most damage/global on that tier.
