  • Cooldown on crowd control abilities for several Hunter pet families have changed.
    • Basilisk pet family’s Petrifying Gaze cooldown is now 2 minutes (up from 1 minute).
    • Bat pet family’s Sonic Blast cooldown is now 2 minutes (up from 1 minute).
    • Crane pet family’s Lullaby cooldown is now 2 minutes (up from 1 minute).
    • Porcupine pet family’s Paralyzing Quill cooldown is now 2 minutes (up from 1 minute).
    • Shale Spider pet family’s Web Wrap cooldown is now 90 seconds (up from 45 seconds).
  • Worm pet family’s Burrow Attack has had its cooldown reduced to 14 seconds (down from 20 seconds).



    Does that mean monkey stun is left @ one minute , making it the most viable option?
    There are indeed few things that made it less appealing to cranes since it has 0.5sec cast time and 20yd range.Yet it is not tremorable nor willable and , as crane one, not dispellable.
    I like that they nerfed the cooldown on webwrap since 32 sec was just too short. I believed that 1 min could be fine but i don't mind that they made it 90 sec and 120 to other faimly stuns.
    Yet i just wonder why they left behind the monkey?

Dont know. Maybe because it shares DR with Scatter Shot?

They are targeting instant cc, maybe monkey doesn't fall under that category?

Use spider, never miss scatter-trap again.
Bye again! This game isn't fun when you don't know anyone else that still plays.

Monkey's blind is on a 2mins cd. What you guys using instead? I'm thinking maybe the fox/sporebat vs Wizcleaves, that seems to be very present on my BG since the patch. Spider seems a solid choice VS melee.

Spider can stop any comp from eating traps. Even warriors, just root the healer instead and aim perfectly.

Using one of the anti-wizard pets is something that I've thought about but I think would be very situational. But if you do go that route, I agree with you: cast time increase > interrupt.

I've been using this too and it's a lot of fun.

Using fox atm and I think it's awesome against certain comps, but sketchy (in an advantage kind of way). It seems to have a 10 yard range to the target + 10 yard aoe debuff from the target. I think sometimes it's buggy because I've thrown it at an spriest and seen his partners get slapped with the debuff from what seems like quite a bit more than 10 yards from him... or maybe my connection is just shit.

Goat does the same thing, but it lasts 12 seconds not 10.

Monkey has a .5 sec cast time while crane does not, but crane is a sleep effect, so WoTF, lichborne, etc can remove it while they cannot remove poo.
