Hunter DPS: Hunter Notes on The 5.2 PTR Patch

Kheldul at Hunter DPS Dungeoneer: There isn’t much discussion about the 5.2 hunter changes up on the PTR, so in the effort to bring it to light, here we go:

  • Bestial Wrath may now be activated when there is no line of sight to the Hunter’s pet.

That will help with some buggy terrain, some PvP column humping, and allow for more creative extreme soloing.  But generally, it is not a big change.

  • Silencing Shot now has a 24-second cooldown (was 20).
  • Binding Shot no longer has a Focus cost.
  • Wyvern Sting no longer has a Focus cost, and its cooldown is now 45 seconds (was 60 seconds).

I love that Silencing Shot & Wyvern Sting have not been bound to talent specialization since MoP.

I do not like the way this PTR change is going.   Sure, these three go together.  They’re all on the same talent line.  And other than a few special add PvE situations everyone takes Silencing Shot.  Why?  Because it’s an interrupt and PvE and PvP really like interrupts. . . . read full article
