Patch 3.2 brings some Hunter love {WoW}

Jun 18th 2009 8:38PM There is hope yet!
Dugg from the depths of the PTR notes comes a new Hunter Trap!

Trap of Paladin.

Hunter lays a trap, enemy walks over it, and a Paladin pops out, screams, "GOTCHA @#*#%!", and then Hammer of LOLZ them in the face.

Patch 3.2 brings some Hunter love {WoW}

Jun 18th 2009 6:59PM Even the Replenishment NERF affects Hunters the Most IMO...
Ya know, concidering all of the MP5 gear we tend to wear to counter it :p

Patch 3.2 brings some Hunter love {WoW}

Jun 18th 2009 6:18PM 1) Woot for ammo changes
Reduction in Ammo Used = NO
Ammo Cost Change (1/2 the ammo in a box for 1/2 the mats? wtf?) = NO

Overall Change:
Ammo/crates take up more bag space


2) Deterrence now has a new visual spell effect

Overall Change:
Players can see it coming now? /clap


3) The time that traps will exist in the world after being put down has been reduced to 30 seconds, down from 1 minute.

Overall Change:
This has gotta be a buff right? Now a rouge only has 30 seconds to get to it and disarm it now too!


4) Traps now have separate 30 second cooldown categories: Fire (Immolation Trap, Explosive Trap and Black Arrow), Frost (Freezing Trap, Frost Trap) and Nature (Snake Trap). A hunter can have one trap of each category placed at one time.

Overall Change:
Since I already needed too few keybinds as a hunter, blizz has graciously given me an actual reason to use more.


5) Entrapment: This talent no longer works with Immolation Trap or Explosive Trap.

Overall Change:
This is a good thing, i mean keeping peeps off me in PVP is the one thing we do too well, and we should have to work harder @ it..


6) Beast Mastery - Catlike Reflexes now also reduces the cooldown of your Kill Command ability by 10/20/30 seconds.

Overall Change:
w/e - Guess this fixes BM ?


7) Lock and Load: Now has a 22 second cooldown. The Lock and Load effect cannot be obtained on targets immune to snare effects when Frost Trap is used.

Overall Change:
So, snares pointless on bosses, Pally Bubbles, etc. Got It
And LnL procs will be even less frequent, Got It


8) Roar of Sacrifice: Redesigned. This ability can now be used on any friendly target to make that target immune to critical strikes, but the Hunter pet takes 20% of all damage taken by that friendly target. Cooldown increased to 2 minutes.

Overall Change:
Since we already have so few keybinds and apparently just faceroll, we have ample time to tab target around and utilize this. Maybe in those arena's (Ring of Valor) where our pets bug out completely and don't do anything the entire match, this will give them something to do since they are to bored to fight already.


Final Assessment:

Given (Aspect of the Cheetah: Can now be learned at level 16.) the coolest thing for hunters is that @ level 16, you can run away from people in an arena much faster at an earlier level.

WoW Patch 3.1 PTR: Death Knight glyphs and undocumented changes {WoW}

Feb 24th 2009 8:14PM In summation, DK's were overpowered in PvP, and will continue to be overpowered in PvP. But, who woulda thought any different.

No more ghetto-hearthing in patch 3.1 {WoW}

Feb 24th 2009 4:48PM So with the new advent of joining a battleground from anywhere, which was the only other real ghetto-hearth "joining as group and afk out" I wonder how that will be affected now?

Dual specs and the importance (or not) of saving gold {WoW}

Jan 19th 2009 4:06PM To be honest I think that any 'gold savings' is really just secondary to convenience. As a 'pure class' hunter taking advantage a dual spec for PVP would be helpful. Spending the gold never has, nor I assume will never be a concern. However, finding your way to a trainer, remembering the exact spec, and finding your way back to whatever you were planing on doing is an event.

Then 20 minutes into it a guild mate need help in an instance, so it's back to do it all again. THB, Dual spec just makes for a more enjoyable playing experience vs. wasting the little playtime some may have.
