Sep 2nd 2010 1:09AM In regards yo you thinking it's retarded that we have to switch, think about the fact that our mana regen sucks as it is, and with the aspects and stings we lose valuable dps. With the switch you will have to adjust rotation some, but have you not looked at some of his previous articles? It clearly shows that rotations might actually be nicer to us than they are now. Currently if you have a bad rotation you blow through your mana, have to switch to viper, then blow your dps to do so. Every other class has some way to regain mana much faster than us, and some never run out for hours of casting. I've actually seen how fast I can destroy mine, it's pretty ridiculous.
Also --> Hunters are not mystical in any way shape or form. We're hunters for crying out loud. Focus makes sense because we are adapting the the wild, our "animal instincts" just like our beloved pets. All the fancy magic shots (arcane, black arrow, etc) make no sense to a "living in the wild" based character.
Sep 2nd 2010 1:00AM I remember that you'd do MC, BWL, or ONY and have a bag full of mana pots, and IF those ran out? (Big if, cause that was very hard with the way we played then) Then hunter FD+Drinkage. Assuming it wasn't one of the dps races. Good old times. And Frost, warlock hate against hunters goes back even further than boss fights, they were always jealous cause we could name our sexy little beasts.
Jul 27th 2010 7:58PM Lol, that'd be pretty cool.
Jul 19th 2010 8:18PM Was really interesting, but I'm still wondering: (1) Will we get aquatic pets? and (2) what does our focus regen mean for our shot rotations? Especially based on differing talents and difference in stings/venoms making an impact on what we can do.
Jul 19th 2010 8:04PM There are addons to do such a thing, fairly easy to find. aspectbar and totembar (works for hunter traps for some strange reason) are examples.
Jun 28th 2010 8:43PM That was awesome, 5 stars! Was that your pet frost? or one of your buddies? I saw your name pop up on the addon, and it must have been awesome to be there. =D
Jun 15th 2010 2:17AM This was an excellent post frost.
1) Think about having a pistol and a dagger, you could have CQC attacks with ranged ones too. MGS anyone? =D lol
2) The reforging into pistols and x-bows things sounds cool, that was an awesome recommendation, but they would have to implement a whole new set of weapons, which after many years of knowing blizzard, they won't even think about trying to implement until much later. Based on that, i think the likely solution for blizzard could easily be to throw some random gear into the game at certain points for leveling people and not have to worry about the many guns you see on the way up.
3) All hunters would need then is the ability to fall in slow motion while shooting as a perk for being L33T-sauce. haha
May 24th 2010 5:33PM I have to say, this is unbelievably the best video I have seen in a while. It shows just how teamwork can conquer anything. It also proves that hunters are, and always will be a top-of-the-line class, even with all the crap we deal with. =D
Frost, I wish I was on your server for that, lol.
Apr 15th 2010 3:49AM Loved this post frost, and you are gonna give me nightmares with the trudging through the snow with a demon at your back part there. That quest killed even the best of hunters sometimes. But I still love pulling out my bow and staff and running around poking animals with em. =D
And you are absolutely right, when all is said and done, we will have to evolve our play-style, but it will be in a good way. And thank goodness they are simplifying stats, I missed agility being an important stat. People now ignore it, and it makes me cry.
Apr 15th 2010 3:21AM Oh, and one other thing:
What ever happened to details on Race changes? Wasn't there something mentioned at blizzcon about this?
I know this seems completely irrelevant, but if the changes have as much of an effect as they could quite possibly have, then that opens up a whole new discussion as well.
