As many of you may have already heard, the Hunter forums are in an uproar today over several changes and bugs that have come with Patch 2.3
. Unfortunately, some of the clamor is shadowing other important Hunter issues. Amanda Rivera
pointed out that hunters have lost their ability to double, or even triple, trap
, and although many hunters were not using this exploit, a large proportion were. Even though this might be a fair fix, I imagine that for many hunters, the raids they have "on farm" will suddenly be much more confusing.
As Robin reported earlier
, hunters can no longer use feign death on a boss fight in order to be removed from combat (you can still drop aggro) and go have a drink. Officially, this is a bug fix, and in fact, many hunters had not even realized that they could go take a swig during a boss encounter. Unfortunately, this is not just impacting a Hunter's ability to pump up their mana pool; it's also affecting their ability to feed their pets.
It is being reported that pets are losing happiness at a faster rate
post-patch, and that while raiding, because a hunter can no longer feign death and feed their pet
, the prospect of using their pet while raiding, or achieving maximum benefit from doing so, is looking somewhat grim for many.
