Encrypted Text: Rogue defenses need to lose the RNG {WoW}

Mar 25th 2009 3:15PM "L2 Stunlock" although a weak arguement, has its foundation. I'm only replying in regard to the author's QQ about hunters, but as a long-time hunter I can assure you that the hunter community has just as many complaints against your class.
Whining about Explosive Shot (except the RNG stun) is just silly, as if you get the jump on us - and yes you can avoid flare and dismanlte our traps at range - you can stunlock a geared hunter from 100-0. Or at worst dismantle my melee and ranged weapon and leave me sitting there unable to Deterrance or fight back. Conversely, yes if I get the jump on you, I can also take you 100-0 using traps, Wyrven and Concussive shots.
So if you have any real complaints, please keep them to the spell damage dealers, as we've always been a physical/spell class (Arcane Shot) and are still rock, paper, scissors with each other.

Scattered Shots: 5-man Heroic loot for Hunters {WoW}

Dec 12th 2008 12:37PM According to extensive testing at Elitest Jerks, and personal use of recount, Hit Rating does NOT transfer to your pet. If you go 3/3 Focused Aim, you will definetely need to go 2/2 Animal Handler (not a bad thing to choose anyway).

Also, current testing indicates that if you have 8% hit (263 rating) you do not miss, and neither does your pet. I have personally confirmed on a recent run in Obsidian Sanctum. Even less hit is needed for 5 mans.

Your best bet is to gear for Hit, freeing up 3 points to spend elsewhere.

P.s. Not listed in this comparison is Sphere of Red Dragon's Blood, a 55 Hit trinket in Heroic Nexus. It also has a nice AP on use function.

Another nice 5 man piece (although not heroic) is the Embrace of Sorrow cloak from Halls of Stone. Highest Hit rating cloak for Hunters thus far.

Was wondering if someone caught it. As an enchanter, I can assure you I'm in the same boat with my outdated lvl 70 PVP gear:

Sadly, on PVP gear from vendors is disenchantable.
