Glaive Toss, Barrage, Powershot - PVP

Hunter
I'm just getting back to WOW after a break. Which talent: Glaive Toss, Barrage, Powershot is the best for PVP?

Thank you!
Glaive toss for arena, Powershot for random battlegrounds, never use rapid barrage ever.
Have fun with the powershot bug.

It's not a bug, its a skill shot similar to the monks ranged snare.

Except you can't manually aim it, and it can't hit a crouching gnome...

But if you pre-scatter, you might get lucky and the pathing won't cause it to "miss" the target!
powershot all the time.

it is 100% a bug, it does no damage all the time, even when they are standing still.

edit, and it works 100% of the time on pve.
i go with powershot. glaives just didnt seem that effective when i was using. also you need to target the back player for best effectiveness.

the knockback on powershot can be clutch. yes, it does bug out a lot.
Powershot

You have to know when and how to use it. "Spray and Pray" won't work. For best results, limit it to stationary targets that are on a equal elevation. Don't try to hit that rogue strafing around his victim or think you are going to snipe that Lok off the tower ledge from the ground. Not saying it wont connect, but there is a good chance it wont.

With that said, its benefits still outweigh it situational use.

1. The cast time will not break camo which means you have a good chance of a sneak attack on a stationary target (pillar humpers in arenas).
2. Rapid Fire+Trink+Powershot+ES\KC\CS+Arcane Dump will put a big hurt on any unshielded player.
3. Things like webs and ice traps allow for its use while in combat.

Because all of the hunter signature attacks like Chimera and Explosive shot are still watered down, you are not going to find another option for burst.
