I never understood why this is used as a consistent arguing point about hunters. Saying "the pet does all your damage for you" is like saying "the power of frost does all of your damage for you", or something less hilariously outrageous, "ice lance and frostfire bolt do all your dmg for you". It's a video game, doesn't matter what form the damage takes as long as the player is still pushing the buttons, and Kill Command/Blink Strike are indeed keybinds just like Ice Lance, they're not on auto-cast. Derp.
People make themselves look like the biggest idiots with that argument.
This is probably just a response to hunters being a ranged class that doesn't need to be in LoS to do damage(Burst damage).
I thought that was a trivial point, missing it and making the power of frost / icelance - frostbolt analogy was pretty gross.Regardless of LoS of hunter, hunter being cc'd or doing something else, you still get hit by the pet, which does substantial damage. Otherwise no one would give a fuck about what ability / damage school / method you use to do damage. Other ranged classes don't have that hunter ability, I mean affli locks would do it , if they weren't doing 85 level damage.
