After days of watching other classes cheer and complain over their Cataclysm
class previews, we finally got a chance for a look into what Blizzard has planned for us with the hunter class previews. Like a good first date, it leaves us excited and intrigued with the possibilities, but mostly it leaves us wanting more!
Let's roll up our sleeves and both take a deeper look at what these changes mean for the best-looking class in WoW
and just how much more we hope to see on our second date.
Before we get started though, we have to be sure to keep our reactions in context. Everything is getting rebalanced in Cataclysm
, every number for every class and every stat. We cannot look at these changes through our Wrath
experience. Since we do not yet know how the numbers will play out with every class and spec being rebalanced, we cannot say whether our damage will go up or down compared to other classes or specs. We just have no idea, so we can only look at these changes with the assumption that our DPS will be equivalent to any other class in most situations.
We'll also be using the Frostheim rating system to evaluate each of the changes, ranging from FAIL to Awesomesauce.
