Wats wrong with an ability that u press once and does 50k~ dmg and shit on people screen?

3kdps. and that's against target dummies.

to put that in perspective, that's the equivalent of summoning a level 70 version of myself from bc and asking the little guy to dps as hard as he can.

I've made it no secret that I hate bm.

So I was excited for the changes coming last night, however, now Stampede pets no longer refresh buffs. Making the change to Stampede a huge nerf to MM and Survival hunters. They use no abilities at all besides auto attack. This 5 minute CD is the worst spell we have now...

Take it off the bars? Spare keybind?

EDIT: THIS THREAD IS ABOUT HOW IT AFFECTS THE OTHER TWO SPECS

NO ONE LIKES BM


#3891423 Hunter pets Die way to easily.

with the change to revive pet, rezzing pets is relatively easy. Just rez inside of camouflage. if you're marksman haste is helpful.


#3890501 Binding Shot

Posted ernest on 22 May 2013 - 09:57 PM

I really love this ability. It's great for controlling melee. I love throwing it onto a trap when cc'ing a dps. even if they trinket the trap if they try to chase after trinket they get stunned.

combined with explosive trap it's a great 3 second CC.
or when dps'ing someone you can throw it up before you power shot and stun.
peeling around a pillar.

i'm creating new applications for this ability everyday now that i don't have to choose between silence and binding. i'm enjoying it.

and you SHOULD all go marksman.

If you're looking for a critique here it is.

It seems like you just chose a bunch of animations you thought would be cool and added them all. You should choose an intro animation for your typography then pick an outro animation and the in between should either be no animation or something different than both of them.

You also should work on your timing. Some of the text, including the "In this video:" part is on the screen for way longer than it takes to read. You shouldn't have it on the screen so long that people are tempted to fast forward your video. If anything you should have it on for a shorter amount of time than it takes them to read because they can pause it if they want to.

And your music choice is kind of weird. I'm not sure if you had music playing when it was being recorded and didn't know how to remove it from the recording but if that's the case then you can actually run the sound through some filters to remove sound below a certain decibel.

If not, I would pick a more relaxing music that doesn't have as much emphasis on vocals, screamo music not the way to go. Something more relaxing with a more up beat and a steady bass would be better.

And I like your intro, it makes me think the video is going to be cool and a fun showcase of skill. The random bieber photoshopped picture kind of throws that feeling off.

Overall though, excellent first attempt at vegas.


#3882988 Scatter Shot DR's Frost Trap on 5.3 PTR

Posted ernest on 01 May 2013 - 11:15 PM

With this change it's going to be damn near impossible to reliably land traps.

All pet cc is considered a stun which means it is reduced by meta gem and orc racial.
One of the stuns is removable by a completely different racial and tremor totem.

All 11 classes have ways to get out of roots which means what we'll have to use a silence on the target just to trap good players.
But regardless, if we're forced to use roots to trap now, that means we have to get narrow escape constantly. Meaning Post Haste and Crouching Tiger Hidden Chimera will never be used, which are both very necessary survival talents for some comps.

Our CC was our main draw for partners, other classes can survive easier and provide more support than we do, but our CC made us valuable.

Now we will be forced to pair up with classes that we can trap off of. So that means their CC must be stationary and not on Poly DR to be effective.

Warriors: Shockwave, Intimidating Shout
Rogues: Blind
Demo Locks: Pet Stun
Spriest: Psychic Horror
Dk: Pet Stun
Ret Pallies: Blind and Hammer

These are the only classes I see having the necessary CC to synergize enough with us to make us semi-valuable partners.

However, these stuns being used for CC means they can't be used offensively, which is a huge issue and will make other classes with Poly Dr CC more vauable, namely mages, monks, and shamans.

This change is game breaking for hunters.


#3881177 Hunters in MoP

Roar of Sac is just too good of a defensive when the game literally revolves around scoring multiple critical strikes, especially when combined with the CC and Damage potential.

They need to lose something somewhere for hunters to be balanced in the current state of the game.

Hunters don't need to lose any defensive CDs. Killing hunters is not that difficult, we take more damage than any class in the game, we have 0 absorbing spells and our only real defensives either CC us or they are interrupts, kiting, and line of sight.

With the rapid fire change that hunter burst will be much more manageable, removing the cooldown spamming opener burst involved in thug cleave, kfc and similar comps. Also with the overall pvp power change i'm guessing the day bursting the openers through heals will be over. Hopefully skilled CC the determining factor again.

Also, with the big bm nerfs that are coming hopefully marksman will be the preferred spec again, it's already mine.

Are you serious right now? This is actually really good for their survivability. Have you not seen how easy it is to swap to a druid with no Hots and kill him in a stun? Oh, wait that's every class lol.

jesus, there needs to be another rank of arena junkies posters. "members," "junkies," and "people who actually read before the post." I might as well be posting on the wow forums with all the 1300 backpedalers.


#3878923 BM or MM in 5.3?

Posted ernest on 23 April 2013 - 08:19 AM

I'm already using marksman in this current patch and just snagged 2200 playing WWmonk/Markshunter/DiscPriest farily easily. With the changes coming to Marksman and the the nerfs in burst coming to bm I'm pretty confident Marksman will be a much more powerful spec than it already is proving to be.
