Wont that be a seperate ability with ss?
From the look of it, lightning strike is completely replacing stormstrike since it's taken up the stormstrike spot on the talent tree. I hope this isn't the case, but Turtle's been known to make some absurd decisions before.

Re: Scrapped Hunter Pet Abilities

One reason many hunters aren't taken seriously (along with one notable loudmouth Shaman) is because they fail to play other classes other than their favorite. Many of these pet abilities are already done by one or more other classes in the game. Since Hunters aren't a 'hybrid' class, having them ab...

Re: Suggestions for wild PVP and war modes

The amount of times I was ganked levelling to 60 (the server was much bigger then) is (un)surprisingly a lot lower than you'd think. War mode's issues as a whole are blown way out of proportion, so personally I see next to no reason for an overhaul or drastic fix. The honor bonus they added a while ...

Shamtank's been a thing since vanilla, just never really possible in ALL levels of content. And, believe it or not, shaman changes here have helped tanking of all things more than any other playstyle.

I could guarantee you that every rogue spec is viable at least from a PvE standpoint. I don't feel like rogue tank should be a legit thing, but meme levels of viability like shamtanking would be fine. Y'know, for the challenge and whatnot.
