Hunter frontloaded damage

Why is hunter damage so front loaded?

Why does it take little to zero setup for a BM hunter to do so much damage?

Why is it that prep got nerfed in TBC to not include a plethora of DPS cooldowns and forms of CC, yet readiness still grants all cooldowns for hunters?

IMO Readiness should only re-set survival cooldowns just like it does for rogues and mages.

A better solution would be to remove cooldowns that reset cooldowns.


Ill take either solution

right, because rogue damage isnt front loaded? oh and you got prep to reset all those nice defensive cds that can be used offensively as well(and most times used offensively anyway).

Most of the hunter community agrees that Readiness should go away and CDs for the abilities it resets should be adjusted instead. What would you declare "survival?" Bestial wrath gets us out of polymorph/CC so is it a survival ability? Just take the ability out of the game. It was good when it was only survival, and again when it was only MM, but baseline as it is just makes it bleh.

But what's wrong with frontloaded damage?

Lets see here..

Prep re-sets vanish, evasion, and sprint.

Readiness resets everything.

Our damage comes from a combo of setting up ideal situations.

We require the following to do decent damage.

Target is stunnd
Target has find weakness on it. ( requires an opener * shadow dance can grant this )
Target has a bleed on it.
Target has 5 combo points on it.
And requires we still have the energy to use eviscerate in the first place.
And requires we are in melee range to do any of this.

Blind is on a 2 min CD also costs 15 Energy

Garrote costs 45 energy

Ambush costs 60.

Cheap shot also costs 40 energy..

Kidney Shot Requires 5 combo points and costs 25 Energy

Hemorrhage 30 Energy

Backstab ( lol stab ) 35 energy

Rupture 5 combo points also costs 25 energy

Slice and Dice 5 combo points also costs 25 energy ( required because it gives us energy )

I could go on about this, but I think you see the point. Nothing we do is free, none of our CC, not a damn thing. Half of what a hunter does for CC is just a cooldown. No energy management, no secondary resource management; nothing.

Sure your primary damage comes from focus, but then again your a beast master so your pet does all the work while you sit back and LOL CC the piss out of what ever you want because you don't need to do any substantial damage on your own. Hell your Damage doesn't even need to obey line of sight any longer you can command your little dog from around the corner while real range classes actually do need to be with in line of sight of the target.

Silencing shot doesn't have a cost
Binding shot doesn't have a cost
Intimidation doesn't have a cost
wyvern sting doesn't have a cost
Scatter shot doesn't have a cost
Traps don't have a cost
Narrow escape doesn't have a cost
Hell even your Pets special CC doesn't have a cost.

Rogues and Hunters have almost always had front loaded damage because they're trying to rapidly deplete resources, where most classes have to build them up first.
