Binding shot was the only reason for ever inviting a hunter
Give back warlock pvp destro root plz
Well, that does make sense, why would that ability make an exception. What doesn't make sense, is why are outlaws still capped?
And who said we needed this nerf? Now those poor hunters is not even gonna get invited to high keys anymore, as it's one of the few reason you bring one.
So I rerolled off balance druid from S1 to BM hunter in S2 for keys, only to get nerfed again lol
This is definitive proof the balancing team has no idea what they're doing. Questions that a good developer should be asking:(1) Should we be nerfing a class that is not in the MDI or RWF meta?(2) Should we be nerfing a middle tier class?I mean literally look at Monks who do twice the damage as hunter and who have significantly more utility with a raid buff and ring of peace. In what world does that class get a buff in aoe with uncapped SCK while hunter who is sitting squarely in the middle of the pack in every category gets nerfed? I mean do these devs even look at metrics before they randomly nerf and buff? Or do they just throw a dart at a spinning dart board and see where it lands?
Please don't take away a valued hunter ability. As a BM hunter I lose the posthaste talent when i do swap to binding shot, but it's worth it for helping my tank in M+. This ability does not need a nerf. Heaven forbid there be any reason to have a hunter except for Primal Rage. Hunters have already lost so much since BFA, why take away more?
Rubbish change aside...Survival Hunters: "Wowhead am I joke to you?" SV also can talent binding shot.
This change (probably) brought to you by the folks who didn't see a problem when pet tanks were unable to hold threat on non-instanced elite mobs, even with growl and misdirecting.
Staying at the BOTTOM of DPS meters for TWO seasons straight wasn't enough already. Let's hit the Nerfbat to one of the their very useful utility that they bring in high M+ keys and a godsend utility for tanks even in lower keys with Necrotic.And then there's pet routing and target bugs that have existed in the game for over a decade and never really been fixed. 🥱😴
Many people in these comments seem to be completely forgeting that BM is completely brokenly strong in PvP. This change could be aimed at that, and for the PvE players: At the very least it doesn't kill the ability. Sounds like you need other buffs for m+ etc. Just like so many specs probably. Windwalker monks are complete broken in all content though, and they're not doing much about that so, maybe there isn't much hope. xP
Unneeded nerf... I don't play Hunter but I love when I'm Tanking and a quality hunter places a binding shot down while I'm kiting. This is as much a nerf for Tanks as it is for Hunters. I thought we wanted more Tanks...
look look the few guilds that didn't quit the game are using binding shot on Sylvanas... Its Nerf time!PD:NO one cares about Sylvana's lackluster fight... still a boring mess
I miss the days where this was actually useful, aka when it was a stun. The huge cooldown + loss of other great talents + short duration + very conditional cc (smaller area, it doesn't root unless they actually leave the small area...) makes this ability almost useless in real game uses, when compared to other classes.
They wake up every day thinking of ways to drive players to FF or NW.
Cool nerf, I'm never using binding shot again.
The whole issue reminds me of the issue Shadow Priests caused with Void Tendrils back in MoP.
