This is a load of horse $%#@. When it comes to hunters, the question Blizzard must answer is, does this make hunters competitive and if it does, how can I nerf it without being obvious. If you have played hunters for as long as I have, you know that the minute a hunter ability is considered OP, blizzard doesn't even wait for the next patch. It gets "hot-fixed" right away. Which is far different to how blizzard treats abilities in other classes. Druids went through an entire expansion before they got nerfed. Blizzard even admitted they were aware that druids were OP, but "didn't feel implementing a fix in the middle of an expansion was the best course of action"(paraphrased). People complained that Death Knights and Paladins were OP during Wrath beta and after release of Wrath xpac, but they consistently denied there was a problem. They stated everything will balance out when people reach 80. After several months and it was obvious that things haven't balanced out, blizzard whips out the nerf bat.In terms of Hunters, PTR is just to allow Blizzard to make sure hunters continue to stay sub-par. That is why, unlike most other classes, tweaking hunter abilities is such a coaster ride.

Oh, NOES! If you actually tell them you realize it, they might validate your persecution complex!
