Hunters nerfed or not?
Return to board index
The only thing I actually wonder about with the change is what's going to happen to hunters who now have a bunch of int on their gear? I don't think anything specific has been mentioned, but it would be interesting to know what they plan to do.
A direct swap to agi or stam wouldn't be balanced at all, but straight up just removing it would seem to leave gear lacking.
My guess would either be that hunters will get a talent that turns Intellect into focus per second, or they'll just take it off completely and rework Enhancement Shamans so they don't need the Intellect either.
Things will be so different after Cata, that it's impossible to predict if hunters will be better or worse (please define for yourself what you would consider better or worse):
talents will change
no more mana, but focus
chances are your gear will turn out to be wrong overnight
RL: Spirit? Why do you have spirit-gear?
Hunter: Spirit-gear? I have spirit-gear? Where did that come from?
You'll have to relearn your class (or in my case: muck about until others have figured out how to play hunters and have posted this on Wowhead and Elitist Jerks). :-)
I doubt DPS will change, since they will keep it balanced as it is now.
But I tend to see it as a buff, since mana management is always an issue, and there are no skills in game (so far) that drain focus. Besides, it regenerates to full in only a few seconds.
I'd say it's a general PvP nerf, if only for the fact that you can't string together so many shots at once without a care. PvE wise, I see it as a buff since you don't have to worry about mana or about lowering your burst via AotV.
Its either going to be extremely OP or extremely UP..
a lot of work and testing is going to have to be done to evenly balance.. lets just hope they fix it
cata is released.
