Powershot?

I think we can all agree that powershot is the most broken spell this game has ever seen. Ghostcrawler says its supposed to be a skill shot... but can't we all agree that's a big sack of BS?! I can only get about 1 out of 5 to work at all.... It's such a great idea of a spell but it needs to be fixed ASAP. Just normalize it in a hotfix or something, jesus.

I agree. In pve i have no issues with it at all. But in pvp it seem to just go on CD and waist my time casting it. if i cast it from camo i have like a 90% ratio of it not doing anything at all. Not a miss not a dodge not immune just doesn't do anything no knock backs, NOTHING! atm if this was working it is one of the few things keeping hunters viable in pvp but with this bug we are so unreliable and cant call out burst cuz you'll never know if its guna hit or just go on CD and do nothing.

it's totally useless in pvp i'd reckon, the time it takes to cast one, you'd already be stunned.

Idk, I was having tons of fun with it in bgs yesterday, powershotting people off of LM and such from camo.

This. Use Powershot from Camo, especially in places like LM and the middle of EotS. You can get upwards of 150k crits, and then go to town with BW + any other CDs and instantly melt faces.

A little frustrating when it doesn't hit, but so worth it when it does.

its not about it not hitting it just sometimes doesn't do anything. Not a miss or dodge just nothing.

I played around with Powershot in bgs yesterday, honestly it was a huge let down and incredibly disappointing. Especially for the amount of time it takes to cast for the effect and damage done. I went back to Glaive Toss which probably does more damage and is way more fun to use. The knockback effect was useless, the Explosive Trap glyph is way more powerful than the Powershot talent. As for the damage output, if your target it set up with pvp resilience or you dont crit on your shot, you are not hitting for 150k hits. More likely you are getting a 20k hit.

Sadly Kill Shots are just as horrible. I get more damage on a normal Arcane shot than I do on a crit Kill Shot.

Yeah for the time it takes it's just too long for not enough damage. Let us cast it on the move or lower the cast time.

I don't like it for raiding. It moves too many mobs around.

I used it in PvP this week and had a lot of fun. I haven't had it fail that often, but I limit its use.

Stationary targets that are CCed or trying to capture the flag are always hit. If they are standing next to a cliff, it is mandatory.

Those two pillar humpers sticking togetherin the arena? Bam, now they are out.

I do not attack targets that are noticeably on a different elevation.

Moving targets are limited to those running towards or away from me (in a straight line).

My favorite is the windup from Camo...

RapidFire+Trink > Power Shot > Chimera > Arcane > TotH Proc Dump = dead (or at least 3/4 dead) opponent.

I enjoy it when it doesnt bug. Takes a lil to set it up, but thats a given with a cast shot. Ive been able to global several players in bgs and arena's in the last two weeks between that, chimera, and if im able to set it up, aimed to a power to chimera with cds up. The characters ive faced typically are fully geared also.

Yeah, I think it's useful for arenas in conjunction with the camo glyph, and that opener advantage can easily win us the match when it doesn't bug. Usually for BGs/RBGs I'll take the glaives, since it's useful for flag AoE and does more damage overall.

It's too buggy to be considered useful for me.

And yet they post nothing about it being bugged or fixed. It's like blizz doesnt even listen to the problems we're having.

From the 1 mind cooldown to the 6 second cast time and only getting 15 - 20k crits most of the time when it does hit makes powershot pretty danm useless.

I too heard it was a skill shot, but I think Blizzard knows its bugged. Sometimes it doesn't proc on a target that doesn't move at all. As I said I think blizzard knows its a bug and doesn't have it high on the priority list, but it'd be nice of them to acknowledge it for us.
