The blandness of the three specs really is starting to bother me. Single target all three specs use glaive toss, multi target all three specs use barrage. Our focus regenerator is the same thing be it steady or cobra shot. Bm and Surv both use arcane shot to focus dump (marks does too, those that do it vs hardcasting aimed). We all apply serpent sting, we all use stampede, rapid fire, and readiness. We all use kill shot. Focus fire is a completely boring proc, and is alot like rapid fire which is also boring. It would be nice if steady focus increased your dps the longer you stood still, with a cap obviously, instead of how it is now.
Signature shots could use a nice buff even if nerfed elsewhere to compensate. How close arcane shot will be to KC is sad in terms of damage for 5.4 as is. Signature shots and execute like abilities should hit significantly harder than a focus dump. Doubling kill shots dmg and removing cd reset would be a nice change, so that when you hit a button called KILL shot, you might actually kill something.
A raid cd would be nice to give hunters a bit of flavor and usefulness, but im not holding my breath till next expansion. Whether its a defensive cd, damagae cd, or something new. A raidwide CD reset, or a temporary cost reduction cd for focus/mana/energy etc might be something interesting to see if done right.
Hunters cant be fixed this expansion for all the holes it has as a class right now, but significantly buffing our dps can be fixed now, to hold us over to next expansion.
Ive played this hunter since vanilla and have always enjoyed it (even now). I dont want to feel like we as a class have jumped the shark, and or glory days are behind us
