The major reason you're all getting hit hard now, as opposed to, say, during the Beta is that Blizzard originally predicted that due to their Talents Hunters would dominate the DPS charts early on, but as other classes gear improved they would rocket up to catch Hunters, if not accelerating past them at some point.They were wrong, and now they must fix the monsters they created. Armed with stakes, torches, and an angry mob's worth of Warlocks, Rogues, and Mages, the Hunters have become the hunted. Same thing happened to Retribution Paladins. There was a bug going on for a while that caused stats to stack by multiply equipping your weapon over and over again. Blizzard was hoping that the bug I mention was causing an inflation of Retribution Paladin DPS, but after they sorted it out Ret Burst and DPS in general was still too high. So they got the "nerf bat". It wouldn't suprise me if you see Warlocks getting buffs while Titan's Grip Warriors and Frostfire Mages get the bat. Blizzard knows when it's your mechanics and not your skill that's topping the meters, and with the new design theory, that's not gonna happen anymore.
