Again, not much news...

Other then some PvP changes to TNT talent not much has happend on the PTR that directly affects hunters. According to MMO-Champion.

But for extra text's sake, here they are:
* Entrapment redesigned: When your Frost Trap, Immolation Trap, Explosive Trap and Snake Trap are triggered, you entrap all afflicted targets, preventing them from moving for 2/4/6 seconds.
* T.N.T.: Gives your Explosive Shot a 33/66/100% chance to refresh the duration of your Immolation Trap effect on the target.
* Trap Mastery: This talent has been moved up to tier-2, up from tier-9, and is now a 3-point talent.
* Trap Mastery, Resourcefulness and T.N.T. now all affect Black Arrow.

The black arrow thing we already knew, right.

This will be my spec if the PTR goes live. All of that is probably subject to change.

Also there aint much to write on the loot of the PTR since the stats are placeholders and there are on SS's of the final design. They look pretty cool tho.

Further, I'm working on a post a bout the great tool Rawr.


PS: The talents of MMO-champion aren't updated yet, don't ask why...

SV Breakdown

Since Blizz has decided to close my account cuz I slack in paying (XD), I got some extra time on my hands to make a quick post about how your damage breakdown on single target encounters should be.

Explosive Shot: 30-35% of total damage.
Auto Shot: 22-26%
Steady Shot: 12-15%
Pet: Swing: 7-11%
Pet: Claw: 6-8%

Another nice trick to see if you, or any hunter in the raid, is keeping Serpent up: check your WWS analysis, divide the total time of the encounter (in seconds) by three and compare the number you get with the number of ticks on serpent sting.

A patchwerk fight is brilliant to analyse these breakdowns.

Strikingly good news from the PTR!

Aspect of the Pack now affects the whole raid, range extended to 40 yards.

Whee! No more Switching in parties. I've to do it alot in raids without a lock.

T.N.T. now affects Black Arrow
Trap Mastery now affects Black Arrow.

This got to be the best news I heard since I knew BA even existed... With points to spend in trap mastery it's no longer required to spend points in a less useful talent, Hawk Eye. Instead spec imba Shadow DoT DPS. I can hardly wait to test it out when it goes live, let's hope it stays this way.

The talent calculator on MMO Champion has been updated save for the TNT talent... But since one would spec in it anyway, it doesn't matter much.

My Spec, should the PTR be live now, now looks like this.

Lion, who is excited!

No news & EE10

Been some time since last post, mainly because not much has happend.

The last PTR included zero hunter changes so I had little to write about...

My Calc's for ES are right btw, I just verifyed that with the updated MMO-Champion talent calculator.

And for shit & gigles I'll give you a screenie from yesterdays Maly10 run.

Click to enlarge and see my DPS, we downed him seconds before enrage. =)


PS: I think my next post will be on the Strange spec the Ensidia hunters currently have.

Too much spare time equals great finds!

While looking at my character at WoW-Heroes, I discovered that Echoes of Lordaeron is the only guild that has more than 2 hunters in the top 125 of best geared players of the server.

Gratz to us! Let's keep up the good work.
