I have a question:I know there this no way to tell for certain now, but I'm curious since my main is a hunter with enchanting as a profession. Since they are moving ranged weapons (ie wands, guns, bows, crossbows) to main hand slots, will they become enchantable? So far wands can't be buffed at all and guns/etc can only use scopes.

I'd be surprised if they didn't. You guys would unfairly lose some DPS there, so they may just change the enchanting rules to allow main-hand weapons to be enchanted.

That or they'll buff scopes.

I would think they would have to treat the hunter weapons as 2 hand main. The one thing I have noticed is that they seem to be moving towards enchants being "weapon" and not main/2Hand etc. so that system is probably already set up. Will be interesting to see how they treat them as far as animations go. A glowy gun/bow. I am kind of interested to see how that plays out.

It does seem like ranged weapons will have to be buffed significantly, to compensate for the loss of the stat sticks.
