You're a stupid moron if you think you'll get any sympathy on this board from anyone with a pulse and an IQ that's above the number of current temperature in the room. Hunters have gradually had their weaknesses removed over the course of expansions, and at one point you've reached the point where you were the most disgusting class in the game, that got equal, if not more hate, than fucking mages. Your entire class mechanics are super easy, and are only gated by CD numbers and dmg % on abilities.
Seeing a Hunter whine about something is like seeing a fat rich spoiled kid from the neighbourhood complaining to his parents that a neighbour got a specific toy, while he himself has 99% of toys out there. Out of all the Hunters on this forum, the only one I've saw with a brain and a personality that doesn't rival one of a 10 year old is Dillypoo.
Your opinions are either a 100% success or a 100% failure. Regarding Mages, you're dangerously wrong 99% of time, mostly because you're heavily biased towards them ( let's be real here, Mages were always super annoying towards Paladins in any form ).
You seem to think that a class being irreplacable and good all the seasons is somehow a bad thing ?
By mentioning ( and defending ) extra DK trinkets, you're defending fucking HORRIBLE game design.
8 second CD on Poly would kill the class, in its current form. Unlike Affliction Warlocks, Warriors, DKs, Hunters, etc etc - Mages don't do passive damage required to actually kill someone without CCing them.
And imagine if Mages/Warlocks had all the tools those classes had. Such comparisons are awful, we're not yet at the point where all classes are homogenized, thank fuck for that. Different classes require different mechanics, stop being biased.
What Mages need to have done to them is simple.
And as for dispel system, there's a really cool idea I had about it a while ago. We're talking about Mages here, so I'll mention a mage. What if dispel worked like this : Mage applies Poly to your partner. You dispel Poly off him, your dispel goes on a cooldown, same way it does now. Mage applies Poly to the same target again, your dispel cooldown gets reset. Basically, if a same debuff is applied a short while after you've dispelled it ( let's say, a 3 second grace period ), your dispel resets once. Mage applies Poly, you dispel Poly. Druid applies Entangling roots right after you dispelled Mage's Poly, your dispel cooldown doesn't get reset, because it's a different debuff.
It'd mirror Wrath dispel system a bit, without being Wrath dispel system. The grace period where your dispel gets reset after the same debuff is applied to the target once again would probably have to be around 2-3 seconds, and it'd probably have a 15 second internal cooldown, to mirror the DR of CCs.
oh, and just fyi : I'd defend every other class ( except Hunters ) the same way I'm defending Mages right now - do you know why ? Because most of the time the community is wrong and is acting like an inbred 5 year old that has no clue about any solid game design, and just wants a certain class removed from the face of the earth, until another OP class pops up, and the fucking circle keeps on happening
