Every Thursday, WoW Insider brings you Scattered Shots for beast mastery, marksmanship and survival hunters. Frostheim of Warcraft Hunters Union uses logic and science (mixed with a few mugs of Dwarven stout) to look deep into the hunter class. Mail your hunter questions to Frostheim.
Blizzard has recently put out the call for class design feedback on the official WoW
forums, with a thread for each class. Hunters have stepped up in a big way, and the hunter class thread
already has over 1,500 responses at the time of this writing (Wednesday night), which is more than any other class. Go, hunters!
The feedback thread is not just an open forums for people to complain but instead is a very focused set of questions looking at longer-term class design. This is not, of course, a promise to implement the will of the class (after all, game manufacturers have known for decades there's a big difference between what people want
and what they will buy
), but it is a clear request to at least understand the will of the class.
We've talked here on Scattered Shots about many ways to improve the hunter class, from removing minimum range
to touching up the talent trees of BM
, and pet talents
, to pet stances
, to the problems with haste design
and some just plain awesome things
we should get. Regular readers have a pretty good idea what I
think should be changed.
So today, we're going to take a look at what the rest of the hunter population thinks about the hunter class and how they answered the class design questions. Join me after the cut for a look at the over 1,500 hunter responses to class design that the developers will be reading through.
