I have a doubt between:"- Aimed Shot and Steady Shot should no longer start casting Auto Shot on a new target when the "Stop Auto Attack" option is enabled."and"Hunters will automatically acquire a new target if the current target dies in the middle of a cast."I was looking for the first change since the release of CTC since it happened too often that I freed a CC because the previous mob died in the middle of an Aimed Shot or Steady Shot cast, but the second change seems to counter it.Sure, it seems that by blocking the auto shot by default we have a chance to prevent freeing a CC: if the spell is in the middle of the cast, we can just interrupt the casting ... except that it is not so easy: Aimed Shot is our only fairly long shot with 2.4 sec. cast time, while the others shots are either instant or at least fast (Steady/Cobra shot reduced by haste); on those cases we have just few tenth of a second from the previous mob death to stop the cast. :(I foresee a lot of QQ.

and also @Drakkenfyre above:As these two statements are direct contradictions I am assuming that "Hunters will automatically acquire a new target if the current target dies in the middle of a cast." should actually say "Hunters will NO LONGER automatically ..." and it's just a typo.I sure hope so anyway.

Yeeessss!!!http://us.battle.net/wow/en/blog/2356431#huntersIt was just a typo: the patch notes state:Hunters will "no longer" automatically acquire a new target if the current target dies in the middle of a cast.
