So glad to finally have a hunter columnist who does their research. Welcome aboard, Frostheim.

Indeed, welcome! I just may start reading this again!

Boy, am I glad to be able to read this column without cursing again. This is the sort of 'loot drop' post that actually is worth reading, instead of the usual 'boss X drops Y' shit.Only bad thing is that it makes me think of changing to MM from surv...Thank you, Frostheim.

Agreed. This column is already infinetly better then anything Carrington wrote.

Am I blanking on something or....." The proc gets much stronger in fights where you have multiple targets up for a sustained amount of time, and you can keep your Serpent Sting on two targets at once (which you're doing anyway when you have the chance, right?).".... does this seem wrong to anyone else?You can only have one sting active at a time. You cannot serpent sting two targets at once and get more procs.Side note: I do enjoy reading Frosts work.

There is also a Tier 10 vendor in the mail armor shop, by south bank. Small dwarf hiding behind the counter in the back corner of the shop.

You can certainly sting multiple targets. Also, the amount of damage SrS does over its full duration beats anything but Explosive Shot and Kill Shot or Volley on AoE packs. So whenever you can cast it to its full effect, it is a damage gain.

"You can only have one sting active at a time. You cannot serpent sting two targets at once and get more procs."From the tooltip: "Only one Sting per Hunter can be active on any one target"So you can have SS on two individual targets, you just can't have say SS and, say, Scorpid Sting on one target.That said, I pretty much never put stings on 2 targets...Guess I'm a bad hunter :-P

"Only one Sting per Hunter can be active on any one target"One sting per hunter.any ONE target.NotOnly one sting per hunter can be active on the target.any ONE target.

I'm going to go out on a limb here and say something I rarely say (especially to a troll): learn to play, Dhryke. Stinging multiple targets has been a MM hunter's bread butter for a long time.

Troll? I'm not a troll, I'm an orc. As far as "trolling" goes, I wasn't. Simply read the tooltip wrong. Went and tested, and I am wrong. Easy as that.Lines like: L2Play are not informative nor do they help anyone else reading this article.

Dhryke is absolutely right. We're all here to learn after all (and possibly be entertained), and I'm a big fan of asking questions. Far better than to risk looking foolish than to risk not learning how to be a better hunter! And of course the questions could also end in revealing me to be foolish :)So props to Dhryke!

Props would have been due if he'd gone out and tested after the replies to his first comment, instead of making himself look like an idiot by posting again without doing that.Anyways, nice to see a good hunter column, keep it up!
