Solutions to Scatter Trapping Next Patch.

Hunter
Dear Hunters

Will now not be able to scatter trap next Patch. This is the patch note.

Scatter Shot now shares diminishing returns with Freezing Trap and Wyvern Sting.

Two solutions for arena trap with narrow escape and binding shot(MM only next patch)
or use a pet stun like a monkey or shale spider.
You can still scatter trap, the duration of the trap will be 4 seconds, down from 6 in pvp.

it's 8s right now, and i can guarantee you nobody will scatter into a dr'd trap outside of the 1600 bracket
I personally macro'd freezing trap to crane sleep....freezing trap and scatter shot share a global it made me angry
The issue with that hollow point, is that you have to get 5 yards away from binding shot to get stuned by it. the trap, however, only has a 1 yard radius in order to trigger it, unless you take a minor glyph to up it to 3 yards. along with travel time and a 2 second arming time, this makes binding shot only able to help trap someone if they aren't that attentive.
doesn't matter, nerf's been reverted now

if only we could force them to move out of the binding shot radius...

oh wait, we can

I think he means: Glyph of Ice Trap
1) That is a major, not minor
2) That is Ice, not Freezing
3) I think that is the effect radius, not the trigger radius

Incoming Snarky comment.

It only requires 3 CDs, as opposed to 2 :-P
And unless you are BM, one of those CDs has the same triggering issues that Freezing Trap has +P
yeah that glyph means the ice slick would be wider, has nothing to do with freezing trap or else everyone would use it lol

and...? i didn't say it's a good way to trap, in fact it will probably be harder to trap off binding than scatter because the stun is too short when you factor in victim travel time in the air after you punt them, and also orc shamans ruin everything. binding shot is going to be used more to prevent eating traps than to actually land them
yea, not on wow right now, and was going off the top of my head, and as I dont pvp much, its not something I pay attention to. I simply remembered a glyph that increased triger radius or something. so sorry for the bad info on the glyph.
