[heavy sigh] So hunter multi won't break sheep anymore. How are you going to tell a hun-ter from a hun-tard? Yes, it means more mobs can be CC'd but knowing when and how to use multi generally means you've learned to play your hunter. Is this yet another step in dumbing down this game? Instead of messing with something like this, work on something more important, like the drop rate of coursair antlers.

You are missing the point. Multishot is a huge asset to marksmen hunters, which have been ignored in TBC. They simply aren't as viable as BM until T5-T6 level (in terms of dps). By allowing indiscriminate use of MS they are seriously boosting the MM dps in raids and instances. Good change, IMO.

"By allowing indiscriminate use of MS they are seriously boosting the MM dps in raids and instances."The operative word there is "indiscriminate". I don't care if you're MM/BM/SV, the ability to know when and how to use Multi separates you from all those who would fire multi into a group of mobs because you can hit up to 3 with one shot, then stand back and wonder why you suddenly have 2 mobs coming after you. Mages are also rejoicing, I know, because now they don't have to figure out how to tell a guild member kindly for the 15th time, "Don't shoot @*%&$# multi shot when I have sheeped someone, noob!" I'm not saying it's a bad change. I'm just saying it seems yet another step on the slope toward not having to learn a class at all.

I think you're overreacting. In fact, I think this will help us be less tolerant of bad players.Breaking CC is only one of a myriad of ways that very bad players identify themselves. Breaking CC with an multitarget ability is only a small subset of the larger category. Genuinely bad players will still target the wrong mobs, sick their pet on the sheep, and trap the MT target.However, it is these horrifyingly bad players that allow us to tolerate those that are fair, mediocre and even flat out bad. We let many players get away with basic, easy to correct idiocies because they aren't anywhere near as dumb as putting serpent sting on the sheep, or pulling before either the sap's gone off or the tank/healer are ready.As the number of blatant mistakes are reduced, our attention can turn to the lesser evils and punish them appropriately, rather than letting them slide.
