T10, or How Many Other Tier Sets Can You Find AGAIN

So, I'm thinking Cryptstalker Shoulders (T3/7), Helm of Wrath (warrior T2), and some form of druid boots for the end result of looking like a giant, bloated felguard. Yay. Could be worse, I suppose. I actually like the used-look to them. Those giant buckles on the shoulders, particularly. Personally, I'm a big fan of what they have going for the rogues this time.

Hopefully they will do away with that silly different-names-across-factions crap (it's not Talonstrike - IT'S DEATH'S HEAD CROSSBOW) and stick to differentiating with colors. But what about the name?! Plaguestalker? Froststalker? Howitzerstalker Arthasstalker?

The really good news about T10 is the set bonuses:

  • Item - Hunter T10 2P Bonus - Your Auto Shots have a 5% chance to cause you and your pet to deal 15% additional damage for until cancelled.
  • Item - Hunter T10 4P Bonus - Your Shot abilities deal 4% increased damage to targets afflicted with Viper Sting, Serpent Sting, or Wyvern Sting. When your Viper Sting, Serpent Sting, and Wyvern Sting abilities deal damage, you have a 5% chance to gain 20% attack power for 10 seconds.

Not sure about the typo in the 2P - obviously there should be a time in there. Ten or fifteen seconds seems likely. Both of those bonuses are simply scaled versions of things we already have, and I love it.

Update: Boooo they changed the 4P! Bit of a downgrade, depending on what the internal CD is, but still not bad.

I'll be turning helm graphics *off* though. Is it a boat or a turtle up there?

Actually, if you look at the helm, the horn is the same horn found on crypt lords. That doesn't stop the set from being ugly as sin however.

I love our set bonuses though.

Nerubian Stalker?

And Windpaw, maybe it's both!

Behold the turtle of enormous girth!
On his back he holds the earth.

updated 4p neg
4 Pieces: (Updated) When your Viper Sting, Serpent Sting, and Wyvern Sting abilities deal damage, you have a 5% chance to gain 20% attack power for 10 seconds
not nearly as fantastic as 4% inc dmg to shots...but still pretty decent considering how drastically blizz is increasing gear scaling/stats with each new set

BIT of a downgrade? The new 4-piece is pathetic.
