Scattered Shots: Musings on hunter haste design {WoW}

Mar 31st 2011 10:40AM Mmm. I like the idea. I was initially thinking it might have flaws during periods of haste acceleration (heroism, rapid fire, etc), but it looks pretty good.

Nice thinking.

Scattered Shots: Cataclysm hunter trinkets {WoW}

Jan 24th 2011 10:54AM Where would you put these two?

Grace of the Herald
Heroic
Binds when picked up
Unique-Equipped
Trinket
+285 Agility
Requires Level 85
Item Level 346
Equip: Your melee and ranged attacks have a chance to grant 1710 critical strike rating for 10 sec.

Skardyn's Grace
Heroic
Binds when picked up
Unique-Equipped
Trinket
+285 Agility
Requires Level 85
Item Level 346
Use: Increases your mastery rating by 1425 for 20 sec. (2 Min Cooldown)

Skardyn's gives a 7.96% elemental damage boost for SV for 20 seconds. I generally hate on-use trinkets, but I've gotten used to them lately with a little mini-game of trying to fit in as many as possible.

Scattered Shots: Hunter spec and class balance {WoW}

Jan 3rd 2011 1:44PM SV's multishot application of serpent stings isn't exactly like serpent stings. If you cobrashot over a multishot'ed mob the cobrashot doesn't reset the timer of the serpent sting. This makes me think it's a different [spell] DoT. I know you didn't focus on it, but make sure any napkin-math WRT multishotting SVers is taken with a grain of salt. Your data is the way to go.

Also, I'm really hating the pet bug where the pet has 6-7k health instead of 90-110k and get one-shotted.

Scattered Shots: Survival hunter 101 {WoW}

Dec 27th 2010 11:29PM WRT your shot priority:
1) Explosive Shot
2) Kill Shot (if available)

I tend to go with:

1) Kill Shot (if available)
2) Explosive Shot

If it's a simple mob, I hit it with KS and KS again (thanks Glyph!). This is usually just a faster way through trash.

If it's a boss, I may end up with KS, KS, ES, other dps, and baaarely eek in a second KS, KS on the boss.

Insider Trader: Easy gold before Cataclysm {WoW}

Oct 25th 2010 7:56PM BTW, Dwarves no longer have Find Treasure.

Scattered Shots: BM not the premier spec for Cataclysm extreme soloing {WoW}

Oct 6th 2010 10:47AM BM may no longer be the raid solo'ng spec of choice, but the largest problem with pet tanking in a 5, 10, or 25man right now is pet threat. Yes, we can crank the pet stamina. But the Cata BM looks like it may give pets some decent threat. Also note the taunt is only a 1s CD and not 3s. (Sure to not work on bosses, but great for OT'ng adds.)

Gold Capped: Quick Auctions Poster does the undercutting for you {WoW}

Sep 23rd 2010 10:08AM I hail Eurip for putting a spotlight on this addon. He had discussed either this or a similar one on their podcast. I recall him being a bit negative on it then.

With enough attention, this thing should go away.

The only thing I disagree with in the post is the conclusion that everyone will use it so pricing will be less of a last-poster-wins game. I don't think many people will use it and therefore the people that do will always "win".
