Hunters Need A Nuke for PvP...

I have been playing this hunter since cata release and noticed that the dps for hunters is very good because they only have the capability to put out a steady amount of damage which does sit around 13k. Very good.

I have no trouble hitting top dps in my raids with guild, it is when I step into the arena I have trouble nuking someone to get a kill. I can cc the healer and do about 50% dmg to a dps before im out of cc and the healer has no trouble keeping up with my 8k Cobra shot crits every 1.8 seconds...while a mage can freeze me in place and crank out 20k ice lance crits and do 80k damage within 4 seconds.

It just doesnt seem like a fair matchup at all to me. If you would like I can post about some other classes that have stupid dmg nuking abilities that blizz probably has no intention of nerfing....but should...

Hunters should be able to stack some sort of combo points to use on a big finishing move whenever they can get the stacks...and not the stacks to use Aimed Shot because that shot is absolutely a terrible instant cast. Something more like what rogues can use instead of a finishing Kill Shot.

You do realize it has a 5 minute cooldown right? It's not a reliable nuke all the time. It's quite easy to get kills in 3v3 as a hunter you just cannot 1v1 anyone if they have a healer.

Still, Steady shot atm does not put out that kind of dmg. At most with Steady you get around3k dmg and 7k crits and with Cobra you get 5-6 with 10-11k crits. MM gets purely out damaged by SV atm. Sure you can use rapid fire to get a kill maybe but if a paladin bubbles and heals through it then youre screwed for the next 3 mins based on what you're saying.

Mainly you just cannot put out enough damage to put enough pressure on a team in 2v2 to get you the upper hand. If you try to dps race with a lock your healer will oom much faster than his because you just cant put out 120k faster than pretty much all other classes.

And thanks for the clarification on that 2v1 sitch...once in a while everyone makes huge mistakes right?

Hunters need alot of things right now, and honestly i don't think a nuke is one of them...

Imo, we should give hunters some form of colossus smash... ( 100 armpen for 6 seconds ) to improve their burst.


Well that's kinda what I am talking about. Either way they need to give them some other rotation where cobra shot isn't 80% of it.
Ik its kinda bs i cant even do any dmg to people anympore, all they do is use bubble and i cant break through all it says is IMMUNE IMMUNE IMMUNE IMMUNE IMMUNE IMMUNE IMMUNE and then by time it bubble off, i am dead because of the ele shaman

The obvious solution here is to buff Shockwave.
