4.3.2 Clarification

Posted: by Frostheim in General

I’ve been getting enough emails misunderstanding the way the MMO-Champion presents the patch data that I think it’s worth a clarification. The changes to Aspect of the Hawk and Deterrence will affect all hunter specs. These changes not specific to just BM or just SV. The confusion comes because MMO-Champion attempts to organize the changes […]


Patch 4.3.2 Bottom Line

Posted: by Frostheim in General

Today over at WoW Insider I go into more detail on exactly what the bottom line of each 4.3.2 hunter change is: Patch 4.3.2 is sitting on the PTR, and like fine wine, weapons, and women, it just gets better over time. This patch doesn’t have any huge changes going on, instead holding a collection […]

I was a guest on the Convert to Raid podcast last weekend talking about the SV spec, as well as answering some MM questions. They have the podcast up for download now, demonstrating how very much faster they are than Euripides about distributing the podcast, and you can check it out here: #27 – Convert […]

Podcast from a couple weeks ago, in which Euripides was unable to make it… which usually means that we’re able to catch up on emails! This was our New Years Eve show, with a bit of a look back at the hunter in 2011. You can now stream our show onto any mobile device through […]

We just got an update last night to the patch notes for patch 4.3.2, including a hunter buff for all specs, and even a little bit of a survivability buff. All hunter changes in the patch notes now include: Aspect of the Hawk now grants roughly 35% more attack power. Deterrence now also reduces damage […]

A Very Podcast Weekend

Just a heads up that there are two days in the weekend, and I’ll be doing some sweet sweet podcasting both of those days. Today at 1pm central time (2pm eastern, 11am pacific) the Hunting Party Podcast has the very first episode of the new year with very special guest Big Red Kitty! That’s right, […]

Hunter Poster Friday 1-6

Posted: by Frostheim in General

It’s hunter poster Friday, with more fantastic and hilarious hunter motivational posters from the brilliant (and occasionally demented) minds of the WHU hunter community!

Today at WoW Insider we go back to basics with the raiding priorities: It’s a new year, and 2012 promises to be a year of changes throughout WoW with the new Mists of Pandaria expansion. The new year is also a time of new beginnings and of resolutions, so now seems like a fantastic time […]

We saw a very interesting blue post last night about the state of hunter DPS and the 10/20% AP buff: Lock and Load not being caused by Arcane Shot is an intentional change. As many players have pointed out, there is just no need for it any longer. We also intend to make sure Black […]
