Hunter Chat Thread 2: Let's Talk Patch

You'd gain any equivalent DPS, including anything tied to your pet. For SV/MM a pet is nothing more than a DoT.

I just hate pets.
You'd still lose utility.... I wasn't talking DPS (which I'm certain can be compensated).

What about Master's call? Roar of Sacrifice? Stampede? Level 45 Talent Tier?

Certain there are other issues besides those. You'd be sacrificing a lot to get a very small change in game play for equal DPS.


I'm talking PvE, so MC and RoS aren't very relevant, nor is the 45 tier. Stampede could still use what's in your stable.

I HATE PETS OKAY.

You sound like you could use a hug.

From all 30 of my pets. All at once.

BM just takes out the fun in being a Hunter imo.
Imo, MM is just flat out annoying. The game play isn't rewarding at all, it just punishes you severely if everything isn't exact.

Also, I like the idea of me commanding a beast by my side who'll tear someone limb from limb.

Doesn't really help that I've been pretty much held to MM since wrath to play optimally.


I wish I understood what you meant, but I don't. Are you speaking in terms of PvE? How is the gameplay punishing you severely if everything isn't exact lol?

MM is all about kiting, slowing, and shooting people in the face. Which is way funner than letting your pet do all of the work. And it's also more respectable by your opponent.

Could go either way. ISS is annoying. MMM for PVP is just bad. RNG is very rarely a good thing in terms of PVP (although that might be eased a bit next patch with steady being usable while moving outside of fox). Aimed shot to me just isn't fun. Either you sit and cast it forever, or you have to hope to god RNG loves you in PVP. I don't like having a dot I have no control over either. Rotation wise, it just feels clunky.

This is of course all opinion, so it's fine if you disagree with me. I do know how to play it properly, it's just not fun.

Both of the other specs have those as well. I like the skill factor in actually controlling the pet properly as well as timing BW and other CDs properly (well not so much atm cause BM burst is retarded strong). With silencing shot and readiness both added to BM, it's much easier to tell a good one from a bad one now then it was previously (which you just had to look to see if they were using their CDs properly / micro managing pet). Knowing when to keep your pet on target out of LOS or when to pull it back is fun, it separates the good BM hunters from the bad ones by seeing if they know how to make good judgement calls.

Surv I also like more cause you have control over LNL procs in PVP (freeze a target, grab LNL and go wild). The dots are also a lot of fun cause I have control over them unlike the passive one from MM. Sadly, surv kind of sucks for PVP, although I did make it kind of work last season funny enough in a joke comp.

Debatable at best. ATM it's not really respectable because of how much absurd damage it does. However, people complain all the time over pets and those people are typically pretty bad. You don't ever see high rated players complaining about how you can just send the pet in and do nothing.
making hunters more viable (now that our rediculouse burst has been reduced to a more reasonable level [edit: in 5.1])

step 1

silecning shot baseline

step 2

replace silencing !@#$ tier talent with this

Tactful trapping

freezing and ice trap no longer share CD but the CD on ice trap is increased to a 1 minute CD

My guild needs better DPS <_<
IMO they should make silencing shot baseline and make entrapment a talent in its place.

I feel like this thread is too far off the authentic "hunter chat thread" vibe, adjust it immediately. Here's a hint: you're not actually allowed to theorycraft in this thread.

WTB Wrath MM.


I am getting bored with Survival and BM, time for MM to be the top spec. I haven't done PvE with it in a year(!)
