Aug 23rd 2008 2:39AM I don't know about you, but as an engineering hunter, I don't see any benefit in wielding a gun which gives me a bonus to my Stamina, hit rating and defense.
Okay, yeah, Stamina could be nice for PVP, but the gun gives absolutely no Agi, AP, haste or Crit rating, which are far more useful to hunters than having increased Defense.
The purpose of this gun is to give warriors something extra to put into their ranged weapon slot to increase their stats.
After all, we too are taking melee weapons that compliment our stats that affect our ranged attacks. So saying ranged weapons are first and foremost for hunters is a bit pretentious, since most hunters I know would pass on this gun because of the additional stats.
