With the release of Cataclysm, the wildly anticipated expansion to the blockbuster hit, World of Warcraft, we look to some of the current changes to the hunter's class, what they entail, and where we can look from here.
I myself am wholeheartedly looking to the cataclysm update, and seeing the changes in gameplay and pvp mechanics.
For once,blizz did the right thing with hunters by replacing man with focus. I too almost delted my hunter at first, but after hours of trying to find the right rotations I found my sweetspot. The biggest disappointment I have now is that blizz once again nerf the hell out of the hunter,used to do +10k damage with aimed shot,+15k with killshot now can't even pass 7k.
Can't agree with you more. While the pvp mechanic is changes significantly, the nerfing is not to my advantage.
Well, I do agree that we took a nerf bat to the face and mages have gotten a huge buff up. They are doing an obscene amount of damage. It isn't even fun to try and out dps them because any decent mage will smoke us hunters. As for the Hunter changes, we may not be doing well in dps right now but that is only because the hunter is made for cataclysm. We have not achieved 85 yet and have not received the "Cobra Shot" which will replace steady shot. This ALONE will up the dps for sure. There is still hope my hunter friend!
When everything is said and done, I wholeheartedly look to Cataclysm and seeing how they tie all these changes together.
