The Grumpy Elf: Concussive Shot – A long time staple of any decent hunters arsenal is gone. When first starting my copied hunter I was setting up my bars so I could do some questing and could not find Concussive Shot. I really do hope this is an error and it was not removed, it is a staple of the hunter toolbox and is, as I see it, required. Let’s hope and pray this is only an oversight and it was not intended to be removed.
When I first got Concussive Shot on my first hunter I thought, what is this crap. It wasn’t until some time later, as I really learned to play my character that I noticed the power of this ability. It became my favorite ability when I got it while leveling a new hunter.
There are three things a hunter is known for. Their pets, their ability to crowd control and their ability to kite. Removing Concussive Shot removes our ability to kite, at least effectively. I am sure I would have never been able to kill the fel reaver at level 58 when I first entered hellfire if it were not for concussive shot. I am sure I would not have been able to destroy every retribution paladin I have ever met in PvP without concussive shot.
Concussive Shot has been a god send when soloing, when in raids, when in dungeons, when in PvP. It has done so much for me and made my play time fun. It has been a part of what a hunter is and it is usually how you can tell a good hunter from a bad one. . . . Read full article
