Scattered Shots: Improving the hunter marksmanship tree {WoW}

Jun 16th 2011 3:32PM " incredibly rigid the MM rotation is..."

My only comment is to highlight the above excerpt from Frostheim. I couldn't agree more.

This is the main thing that is holding me back from going MM for 4.2 raiding. I dislike how unforgiving and unintuitive the MM rotation feels. There is no margin for error. If you have to move or perform a function or task during a boss fight, your rotation goes all out of whack.

Scattered Shots: Improving the hunter BM talent tree {WoW}

Jun 9th 2011 3:30PM This week Ive been asked by my guild to try raiding as BM (havent been BM since vanilla) to provide the raid with Heroism, so I think I have an unique perspective as an experienced raider that is very new to BM (read: BM noob). Granted these comments concern playability experience, but if there are any changes/improvements to the trees Id like to see them address the below issues.

1) There are much more cooldowns to manage. Survival by contrast is very intuitive and more forgiving (but not too forgiving). Got me wondering if I need to rely on Macros again, but there is much more 'buff' cooldowns together with special shots that its a little jarring. It does feel a little better than MM's current state which frankly, I cannot stand (MM raiding presently is so unforgiving and unintuitive that it allows zero margin for error and feels clunky)

2) Kill Command as a special shot is decent but Im not a fan of how it is reliant upon the pet actually being on the target. This is a problem when changing targets or if a target/boss is in "flight phase" - in which case I am unable to use most of my damage capabilities. I imagine melee classes will give me grief for saying that but coming from MM and Survival raiding experience, I will just say that this was an adjustment for me.

You knew that was coming, don't lie.

How lag forced me to play a little differently {WoW}

Apr 20th 2011 7:31PM Some annoying typos are amay-zing, like the one I read earlier today:

"With the rise in popularity, Pike Research also predicts that the battery industry is at the beginning of a massive boob." ( )

Scattered Shots: Hunter addons {WoW}

Apr 14th 2011 4:24PM I am not a novice hunter but I do use Faceshooter because it helps give me a sense of how many steady/cobra shots I can do before my next special shot is up.

I use Power Auras primarily to tell me when special shots are up, and Faceshooter to gauge the number of steady/cobras to do, and which of the special shots are coming up next.

Scattered Shots: Why hunters are better than every other class {WoW}

Jan 13th 2011 1:14PM That got me too. We haven't been able to combat rez since vanilla. That's one of the biggest things I miss about hunters.

Breakfast Topic: What feature does WoW need most? {WoW}

Dec 23rd 2010 9:11AM A dungeon finder rating system. If someone ditches my heroic run because it didn't go perfectly or right after a boss that doesnt drop the loot he or she wants, i'd like to downrank that individual similar to how people can downrank comments here. Whether that system would be best served as a 'warning' to others or to cause the dungeon finder system to take longer to queue the lowly rated person, I haven't decided yet.

Scattered Shots: Grandpappy Frostheim on Ghostcrawler {WoW}

Nov 15th 2010 1:26PM Nice post but it took a bit of a dark turn towards the end there. Frostheim must have just finished watching "Sons of Anarchy" when he wrote this.
