Here's some good news for hunters in the next patch that I don't think we've covered on its own yet. Huntsman's Lodge points out
that there are two new types of craftable epic ammo on the PTR for us to load up. Iceblade Arrows
and Shatter Rounds
are both learned by engineers who rep up with the Ashen Verdict
, the new faction to go along with the assault on Icecrown. Both add a whopping 91.5 damage to ranged weapon DPS, and of course they're BoE, so all you'll need is an engineer buddy honored with the new guys. One catch: arrows require Gnomish engineering, and the bullets require Goblin engineering. Interesting choice by Blizzard, but it shouldn't be too big a problem, especially since mats are pretty cheap anyway (two Crystallized Shadow
for the arrows and two Crystallized Earth
for the bullets).
Sounds good to me. Still no sign of those great ammo plans
we heard about way back when, but more damage (especially some so relatively easy to get) is never a bad thing.
is the last major patch of Wrath of the Lich King
. With the new Icecrown Citadel 5-man dungeons and 10/25-man raid arriving soon, patch 3.3 will deal the final blow to Arthas. WoW.com's Guide to Patch 3.3
will keep you updated with all the latest patch news.
