Time for the BM-hunters-being-nerfed dance!

Sure, everyone has read GC's post by now, but I just have to add my excitement for changes that affect them and not me.

  • 3) Readiness – no longer affects the cooldown of Bestial Wrath.

HELL YEAH. Now there is no chance that they will take The Most Evil Talent Evar with The Best Talent Evar (copyright Rilgon)!

  • 6) Kindred Spirits – now only grants 3/6/9/12/15% pet damage.
  • 7) Serpent’s Swiftness – now only grants 2/4/6/8/10% bonus attack speed to pet.

Heh-heh-heh..

  • 11) Rake and Scorpid Poison – slightly nerfed to bring them into line with other pet abilities.
In commemoration of this moment, I have taken the time to make a lolcat:


Take that, kittehs!

It will be very nice to use Kill Shot more than once in an encounter and to have my pet actually hold aggro for once. RIP Volley - it was fun as hell while it lasted.

Not sure I like what they did for Deterrence. My months as SV adjusted me well to this spell. I suppose it will work well enough for PvE's oh-shit-I'm-tanking-the-boss moments, but for PvP, this really sucks. I became quite responsive to hitting Deterrence as soon as a melee opponent came into range, and now I can't do this. That is annoying even for the scant amount of PvP I do.

Awww.. don't look at me like that Pike! You know I mean those elitist-BM-bastards!

I know ;) I will also add I am glad about the Readiness/BW nerf. Even though it was a fun thing to play with, it was overly silly and too OP. Plus, it justifies my 51/20/0 decision. Ha!

brb printing a 8x11 of that and framing it

I'm with you here. I was looking forward to trying out the Readiness/BW combo, but I wasn't looking forward to giving up my "Beast Mastery" talent. Now I suppose I don't really have to!

/sigh...
Such hate still existing within the hunter community...
I'm with pike.. even for the elitist I'll try to remain positive. :)

As for the lolcat - it is funny.. Tragic/Painful, but funny :P

I'm exceedingly tired of seeing just cats. Tonight's raid had four hunters - I was the only one without a cat.

All the overhaul to pets, and we see the same pets that have always been around. I just want some variety already!

You'll have to forgive the rejoicing on the parts of the MM hunters, Brigwyn. We've had little to celebrate since 2.0 hit.

I would say I'm even more excited about the normalizing of the hunter specs (sans poor SV, which I hope they fix soon) than I was of the Great Fix to Trueshot Aura. Afterall, this gives us a chance to be a unified class again, instead of a majority one spec, a few stubborn oddballs, and then a utility spec "taking the hit" to buff the raid.

The MM community amazes me.. it's like some guy who just got 3 teeth knocked out laughing at the guy who had 6 teeth knocked out...

Neggles said...

If those teeth you are talking about were implanted and disgustingly OP from all the other teeth, then yup, that's exactly what I'm laughing at.

You're acting like that spec isn't even viable anymore - bloody hell, this nerf was SEEN COMING.
