Why the **CK are we ELECTROCUTING our own pets? This is a terrible idea for a spec that is, fantasy-wise, supposed to be at one with our beast companions... and can we please get a better model than the crappy worg model (Draenor wolf or similar to the fenris model please or let us choose from our own pet models?)? Still doesn't make sense of Survival being a melee class dropping traps right on top of themselves and their pet and BM using a gun and torturing our own pets to do more damage... Really blizzard, switch the spec weapons and make BM the melee spec, right there in an enemy's face with your spear and two pets! Survival dropping traps, using grenades, and having a Lightning cannon!
You have to remember that this is Alpha content, so it's very likely that they will update the model to the new Worgs, maybe. I don't think its model is final and I am pretty sure that it will change with the apparence of the weapon.
P.S.: Chill out mate
Everyday it looks more & more like I'm going MM for Legion. As a hard core BM hunter this makes me sad.
I have many concerns with Hati; mainly how little control people in the Alpha have shown over Hati.
Hati is like aggressive mode 2.0 and you know how much fun it was to forget your pet on aggressive and zone into a instance?
Now picture that on a pet you CAN'T dismiss, have feign death or control in anyway. Also there isn't an alternative weapon for BM in Legion.
So we are stuck with the super agro wolf gun?
No thank you, I'm saving myself a headache and going MM.
I have to say, my favorite spec seems to be getting shat on from a great height. So, let me get this right. Blizz is forcing a gun quest on us for starters, which pisses off a LOT of hunters who detest the guns in the game. Kill shot is gone. The animation of Stampede is ridiculous- it's almost exactly like the pet battle stampede animation. I like pet battling, don't get me wrong. But for as an ability of BM? It's an insult. I *love* the idea of a weapon infused with the power of storms. I *love* the BM artifact quest. But dear sweet jesus, they'd better give us a wolf that's got a new look. That horrid Wrath worg is just poor taste.
I see BM and Demonology in similar veins, for obvious reasons, but it *feels* like they have someone working on BM that doesn't have much love for it or who knows much about the people who love it. Demo has a ton of stuff going on -almost too much, looking at the rotation. And the abilities are not only meaningful to the spec, they make sense. But in contrast, BM is literally bouncing between kill Command and waiting for dire beast to proc while you stand there and wonder which random beast is going to pop out next. And no, simply making them the beasts from our stable doesn't address the issue. And because they've invented an idiotic focus return that's out of the BM's hands, you have to spam Cobra Shots constantly. Don't think so? What do you think's going to happen to our focus on bosses or enemies the dire beasts can't hit- and there WILL be plenty.
This isn't shaping up well.
Some things are *good*. Adding in the possibility of Chimera shot was a smart move. But still. The issues here FAR outweigh the positive for me.
I very much think they should take a page out of what they're doing for Survival hunters here, and actually give us abilities that we can do WITH our pets, or at least command them to do other than Kill Command.
Thanks for all the great articles so far though regardless, Wowhead. Very nice to see so much. :)
This so much. I tip my hat to you (if I had one anyway) for saying so much that had to be said.
One thing that I can add is that the bow skin that we've been seeing around doesn't really match the theme of all the other Titanstrike skins. Except for the base skin, all of them are themed after animals rather than a playable race, but the bow skin seems to be themed after Gnomes. Don't get me wrong, I'm
grateful that they added a bow skin, but the overwhelming majority of the hunter players that wanted a bow skin aren't Gnome, Dwarf or Goblin hunters. We all play a race that would quite likely prefer a bow or (at least) a decent looking crossbow rather than a gun. Giving us a bow skin but making it themed towards a race that would rather use the gun skins to begin with is like giving us a Lamborghini that's colored puke green (or some other horrific color) on the condition that we never repaint it. It's two steps forward, and one step back.
As a goblin engineer hunter myself, I fancy guns over the other weapons (even more with the mini-crossbow-on-back bug, or whatever). But I must admit I'm utterly disappointed with the BM guns, when compared to other classes artifacts... these are so lame. :(
I'll end up going MM for Legion...
