Garwulf at The Huntsman’s Lodge: In less than a week, the hunter class (along with every other class) will see the most radical overhaul to date. I’m neither worried nor excited, but I am a slight bit bummed about a few things…
First off, I may be the only hunter in the game that is going to miss my melee weapon(s) and abilities, but I’m a little sad over this. Ever since I installed the game and decided upon hunter as my chosen class, I’ve always enjoyed being able to equip and utilize melee weapons.
Over the past few years, Blizzard has gradually diminished our melee viability to the point where this loss will hardly be missed by most players, but I’ll be lamenting this change – mainly for nostalgic reasons. I recall back when our melee abilities could actually account for a bit damage, if needed, especially at the lower levels. Back when I used to be active in the 10-19 bracket, my Raptor Strike/Mongoose Bite macro used to devastate opposing players.
