"Hunters can now use Auto Shot while moving."Despite the sv nerfs this makes me very happy, ty Blizz!!There actually is quite a few buffs for hunters now pvp wise that is, i guess they actually are listening :)

Someone must've rolled a Hunter (finally), and realized, "Wait. That's dumb. Why can't I auto shoot while running?"

Indeed! I take back my harsh words. They really are listening! If only they would have dropped a blue on the forums to shut us all up earlier...

This is definitely a good thing. BM and MM Hunters were a bit low, and this takes a little bit of the sting out of the SV nerfs. Looks like Serpent Spread is back now, too. Now how about some AoE help for BM and MM, too?

Have to admit, I didn't see this coming, and it REALLY made me squee! I'm PvP-Surv and PvE-Surv but this change might actually make MM and BM viable and PvP spec balance between the three would at least even out! Mostly because BM depends on the pet and their autoshots recharge the pet Focus, and MM relies on auto shots for a majority of their damage to proc their Mastery.Overall just super, super grateful for this change, Explosive and Black Arrow still being nerfed but at least 10% less than 25% (Explosive I understand, though Black Arrow with its CD doesn't really warrant the damage nerf IMO) is sad, but really, moving Autoshot...WOW!

Agreed! As a (mostly) BM hunter, the patch notes made me quite happy as it is, but seeing that we can auto-shot while moving had me cheering. ^_^...so when does this patch hit? :P

Am i the only one who was worried about this? If surv is still top after this round of nerfs there is going to be so little between a great hunter and an ok one, i liked the depth stutter-stepping gave, if i've got a 2-button rotation most of the time and only get a 600 ap penalty for moving i'm sure as hell going to feel like i'm playing the 'noob class' again :-(

I honestly hate the idea of auto-shooting while moving, until Blizzard gives us the option to turn off targeting the nearest mob if we hit a button right as the mob dies. I use moving to counteract the possibility of accidentally pulling things that shouldn't be, and I know many hunters that also employ this technique.Am I simply supposed to start mashing ESC when something hits 10-20%? :|

This is possibly my favorite patch note since "Consumable ammo is being removed." It had just better not take as long to migrate from PTR to live as that one did, or there may be blood, fire, and more blood.

There's too many buffs for Hunters. I ... I want to say I'm excited, but ... Here's hoping!
