I'm really digging the change to CC/AoE to fit the spec!
Are we getting more hunter pet slots?
Now I really wonder what Blizzard is going to change to the mage specs.
Well, the changes are better than I thought...still worried about the complete revamp of talents and the inability for pets to tank for MM. We'll see, especially with the new CCs for Marksman
Marksman hunter rotation: Arcane shot till 80 focus; marked shot; aimed shot. Rinse repeat..... sounds kinda boring IMO :/
Interesting. Looking forward to the mage changes.
So... Survival is like a warrior but with a pet?
Wait... Does that mean that Beta started or Blizz released this info/was aviable at blizzcon for you guys to see?
Hmm seems like they are doing us hunter right. Being a BM hunter, I'm liking the prospect of more then one beast out at a time. Though for a secondary spec i will have to check out Survival. Kinda digging the idea of melee with a pet. Looking forward to the changes so far.
It'll be strange going from range to a melee class when switching from Beast Master to Survival.
Man I really hope so!
I asked for more information, and I got it... but man. All three of those "fantasies" are SO FAR OFF from what I think of as MY class fantasy. Beast Mastery has the potential to still be tolerable if (and ONLY if) they fix some of the major, eleven-year-old issues with pet responsiveness and pathing. To be honest, that's the main reason I don't enjoy it NOW (even though since Survival took the hit in the HFC patch it's been my sole spec). Having, on average, 60% of my potential damage thoroughput ignore my "attack this target" command for 2-3 seconds (and then get stuck on a rock for 3-4 more seconds) every time I have to target switch is just miserable.Hope the rest of these blog posts come fast, because I don't think I can take a full year more of knowing that I'm gearing up this character to get abandoned for the next expansion.
My current main is a Worgen BM Hunter. I like the Hunter changes that are going to happen in Legion. From the descriptions - the specs will be more unique and have a more distinct gameplay. I thought it was only Survival that was going to be changed but I am still pleasantly surprised at the proposed changes for all Hunter specs.
As someone who hasn't enjoyed Hunters since they took away our melee weapons, I am extremely excited about the Survival changes. I'm almost certain Survival Hunter will be my main in Legion.
I'll definitely have to give Survival a shot now, I trust that the team knows what they're doing with it.Now to wait for the other blogs.
My main is Ret Pally, but I love my hunter and will enjoy playing around with the new specs.
Ok, the survival spec looks better than I thought. That Harpoon sounds fun.As a BM since the dawn of times I like the changes too, more beasts in fight more comfortable I will be :B
I kinda remember Hunter use to rely on poisons.Anyways, Survival Hunters feels like a mix of Warriors and Rogues only with a Pet. Either way, they usually end up on the top of the Charts.
I don't see these changes as being etched in stone yet, just the first steps toward the final versions.
