Greetings Mr. Frost, I had a Hunter based idea that I wanted to run by you. Of course it will proly never happen, but a young dwarf can dream.Anyway, I was playing with Marksmanship the other day, and it occurred to me, that WoW is pretty much the only video game that I can think of that doesn't have any real "Charge-up" move. There are a few "get x Stacks of this buff" moves, But I'm talking about one that rewards patience and good timing, so my idea:Change Aimed Shot to have a variable casting time from 3 to 7 seconds. After 3 seconds, Damage of the shot builds higher and higher, and if you can make it all 7 seconds you basically have a shot of Tactical Nuclear Strike strength. What are the downsides you might ask? (here I assume you ask) Taking damage drops a second off your maximum cast time (each time you take damage) and any movement or alternative shots (like renewing SS) automatically activates the shot. (duh really) Also it would probably cost about 97 focus.anyway, what's your (and your ragtag group of hunter buddies) opinion on this thing that will never happen?

A charge-up style move could be cool (and rogues have something kind of like that with combo points), however the 7-second 92 focus shot would not be a good idea. If you can charge it up enough to one-shot someone at full health, then it's too strong, no matter what the limitations.But a middle ground version where the shot can be fired from 2-6 seconds with different effects could be really cool.

I thought that was what Aimed Shot was originally supposed to be. Of course, this was back in Classic when hunters didn't hae any cast-time shots but Aimed Shot (I think) so standing there for 3.5 seconds to charge up this massive bomb was great. I can remember being able to cast it from Shadowmeld, and your SM didn't go away until it fired. Boom dead clothie. Give those 3-minute mages a taste of their own medicine mwahaha.Wait, what were we talking about again?

Aimed Shot has always had a cast time, as far as my experiences with vanilla are concerned.
