>> (BM) They Can't: Raid quite as well as other HuntersBM hunters can pile on raid damage (and have a nice all-damage party buff).... and they do it with a built in salvation (the last Gruul run my pet did 27% of my 780 dps... thats _37%_ (1/.73) more damage (for my portion to hit 100% total) I can do without pulling (on the off chance a resisted feign kept me too high on threat)).>> (BM) and their pet doesn't do well under AoEIn 2.1, Blizzard added an 'Avoidance' skill specifically to handle that (which any raiding pet should have)... Reduces the damage your pet takes from area of effect attacks by an additional 50%.>> (MM) Silencing Shot and Scatter Shot work well in raiding situations also.Those are both extremely powerful PvP skills with extremely little raid utility. If you're fighting mobs that can be CC'd then you can sometimes Scatter to keep a priest from getting smashed before they're reCC'd (but this is a very small case). Some raid fights v casters require an interrupt, but they're immune to silence effects (such as silencing shot)... the rest can't be interrupted or silenced. Probably, there is a raid fight out there that I haven't seen yet where you'd use silencing shot, but not enough that I'd say it is _useful_.>> (frostmages) as the threat problems that Fire mages suffer from are easily handled by Iceblock.That is the first time I've ever heard Iceblock described as a threat management tool for raiding. Did you type that with a straight face?
