Patch 4.3.2 PTR official patch notes {WoW}

Jan 9th 2012 10:24PM You've never been hit by a blood dk with 13k+ AP of stacked vengeance have you? I've been hit on my hunter with 4.2k resil for 35k by god knows what by them. I'm lucky if my chimera shot crits that hard when i have my cds up on a target with that kind of resil.

On another note deterrence buff woo! :D Suck it DoT's!!

Scattered Shots: Improving hunter PVP {WoW}

Oct 19th 2011 1:49PM I haven't had a chance to hit the rbg's in a good while, but in the capture the flag's i've done I've noticed that it almost feels like I'm more useful defending the flag carrier than I am going with offense. We have roar of sacrifice, master's call, freezing trap scatter shot all these abilities that are awesome for peeling for the flag carrier combined with our own surviveability, especially with 3-4 healers in the same room. We can kill the opposing team's offense or at least last a hell of alot longer than normal.

Conversely, I honestly don't feel useful for anything more than tranq shotting buffs off the kill target and getting a few aimed shots in during cd's. Scatter traps, even if they DO land, will get instantly dispelled (in my experience at least) the moment they proc by one of the 2-3 remaining healers that aren't cc'ed.

In arena I've always felt that we are more suited to utility, that is, keeping people in one spot and making sure that our partners can do their jobs/stay alive to the maximum ability with our buffs and abilities helping them out with doing damage as our secondary priority to that.

I'll have to wait to see how the T13 2pc changes things with the better focus regen, but that's just my impression of the state of our class right now. XD

Breakfast Topic: What are your rules of engagement for world PVP? {WoW}

Sep 12th 2011 12:52PM I have followed the exact rules you posted right here for a couple of years now. Good to see I'm not the only one who enjoys the idea of honorable single combat. :D

Even if it is against one of those cowardly hit-and-run rogues. :P

jkjk

Breakfast Topic: What do other players do that really annoys you? {WoW}

Jan 25th 2011 6:15PM Dungeon leaders who ask for the hunter to put a mob in a freezing trap, then instantly pull. I can't trap something that is moving/right next to someone who is cleaving/aoeing. If you want me to freeze something, I can't do it unless I freeze before the pull. If you want I can stand on you while camod and do it, or you can have me put the trap at my feet and let me distract the mob to it, but whenever I try that the tank always panics "OH SHIT I LOST AGGRO" and immediately taunts it back.

Please make the hunter's job a little easier so that he can do the same for you. :)

Breakfast Topic: What's behind your character's name? {WoW}

Jan 5th 2011 11:03PM I ended up ganking the name of my hunter from the last name of an obscure ashlander in The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind. I also use two other names that I changed up a bit from the randomize option and I add names with strange characters (for example: à) when I run out of names to use for characters.

Breakfast Topic: What do you nibble on at raid time? {WoW}

Jan 4th 2011 3:57PM There is a 7-11 just a block down my street. I usually go there for a soda before a raid. XD My guildmates always make fun of me for it. XD
