Scattered Shots: Hunter tier 11 set

Every Monday and 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.

Cataclysm is still several weeks away, and for most of us, raid content is yet more weeks beyond that. But it's never too soon to start drooling over new gear, and what's more deserving of our drool than our very first raid set of Cataclysm?

The hunter tier 11 Lightning-Charged set gets us off to a killer start in Cataclysm with very nice and useful set bonuses right out of the gate. Of course, the set looks like you're wearing a skinned murloc, but whether that's a bad thing or a moment of sublime joy depends on your personal taste and history with murlocs. Personally, I'm happy to be wearing their hollowed-out head. Glrgl-murfl this, ya bastards.

Join me after a cut for an in-depth look at the new hunter set, including exactly how all the set bonuses work and some preliminary numbers of the set bonus DPS contributions to each spec.

Cataclysm Beta: Death knight, hunter and paladin tier 11 previewed

The fine folks at MMO-Champion once again peel back the layers and show us the future -- at least, the future of what we'll be wearing. While the hunter set is interesting, I'd have to say I actually really like that paladin set, shown above. It's no Judgement, but it's pretty solid nonetheless. They also revealed the death knight tier 11 set earlier, and it's very dramatic looking. The red set is pretty spectacular. (I restrained myself from saying it was hot. You're welcome.)

Head on over and take a look.

World of Warcraft: Cataclysm will destroy Azeroth as we know it; nothing will be the same!

The Queue: The one with the fashion-forward warlock

Welcome to your daily dose of The Queue. With Mike Sacco quite literally powerless, his precious Queue was left unguarded and captured by Fox Van Allen. All members of the Van Allen faction shall enjoy a 5 percent buff to damage and experience for the 24-hour duration, and Spirit Shards may now be collected.

Ladies and gentlemen, I have returned to host The Queue once more. I know you've missed me. You're probably saying to yourself, "Oh man, I wish Fox could do The Queue every day of the week, four times a day!"

This, of course, would be folly. You can indeed have too much of a good thing.

Remember when Who Wants to be a Millionaire first aired on TV? It was on maybe once a week. And then it got so popular that they started adding extra shows. Turn on your TV on Wednesday and -- boom -- there was Regis. Turn it on Thursday -- Regis. Friday -- Regis. Sunday -- Regis. Sooner or later, you couldn't even take a trip to the mens' room without seeing Regis Philbin staring back at you from the urinal, asking you who the father of quantum physics was.

It's Niels Bohr, OK?! Niels freakin' Bohr. Now if you'll excuse me, I'm trying to go to the bathroom here. Man.

Sharvis asked:

How has trade chat been since the last patch? Now that you can't spam in it, it seems slower-paced to me at least.

Cataclysm Beta: Tier 11 set bonuses revealed

Another week sees another beta patch, this one build 12942, and it's a doozy. Why do I say that, you ask? Well, for example, we've got our first look at the Tier 11 set bonuses thanks to the mighty dataminers at MMO-Champion. You'll notice that the death knight sets are officially blood and DPS now (enshrining blood's status as the DK tank tree), that a great deal of these set bonuses seem to increase either straight damage or critical strike chance for DPS sets, and that yes, there really is going to be an effort to push Templar's Verdict for paladin DPS. (You may notice other things, as well.)

Step behind the curtain for a sneak peek.
