My 78 BM Hunter is attempting the Quest "The Drakkensryd" where a player jumps from one in flight Proto-Dragon to another and attempts personal melee. Here nearly 100% of the Hunters abilities are removed. No pets, no traps, no snakes, no quick slot commands, no ranged abilites at all allowed and no melee aspects under 4.01. In practise I use the harpoon to change dragons, start the fight, sit back and because I cannot do anything else just die. The aspects introduced in 4.01 are about movement and ranged fighting only. Using this quest as a perfect example I ask for everyones opinion about giving Hunters a melee aspect. Thanks.
Um, don't we have a melee attack? Raptor strike or something. I'm sure the cooldown is pretty minor too (6 seconds or something). I'm not sure because I don't even have it on my bars.
I did the quest you're talking about without using any special attacks, just popped a health potion when my health got below 50% (omg cheater!!).
You're a CHEATER!!!!
Yes, it's possible to do.BUT you will be in GREAT disadvantage. Worst case scenario is that you will have to wait to be 80 geared, and take health potions. But no matter WHEN you do, it will take a LONG CRAPPY TIME to finish. Be prepared to whistle some tunes after dropping the enemy from the dragons, before jumping to the next.
Far worse is the quest "The Brothers Bronzebeard" in which you have to kill the iron guys that are attacking Brann's flying machine. You can only use raptor strike (traps will fall on the ground not the flying machine and your pet is gone) to fend off the attacking mob and unlike the Drakkensryd quest, you will fail if you don't do enough damage because the mob will destroy the plane. At my gear level (everything 232+ except my 226 neck) I had to try three times before I succeeded with 1% health left on the flying machine. I can't imagine trying this quest while leveling :(
This was already thought of by Blizz. Using Raptor Strike during this quest has a chance to proc the following emote: "<name>'s exotic fighting technique throws the Drakerider off-balance.", and dismounts the Drakerider.
Non-broken quest is non-broken.
