Hunter need some love

Post by Foteinos » Sun Sep 17, 2023 3:48 pm

hunter at 60 is the worst class, only tranq shot save their spots in raids. mages can do better than traps and pulls can be done by other classes.dps is the lowest,aoe is almost 0 and utility is average.
dead zone is just a bad joke,to narrow or packet areas,you can go only melee.and hunter melee sux big time.
pet is another joke,it dies easy and can mess around bring death to everybody.
remove frenzy from bosses and all raids will have just 1 spot or 0.
1 for naxx trash skiping maybe.

in pvp its the most broken class ,dead zone and fake cc(scater-fd-trap) make the hunter the easiest target for everybody

Easy Fixes
1.make our intellect pool offer some spell dmg,so volley ,arcane and fire traps do actually some dmg.a passive ability.

2.remove dead zone,its easy,archer mobs in av dont have it and shoot further

3.remove pet for 1h and give a attkpower buff instead, or every pet to give a different buff,like speed or manaregen or agility etc

4.make frost trap and wyvern sting real cc,in combat with longer cd,not out of combat.

5.just impove scaling

All this talk is about 60 and high end,not about lvling(very good) or low bracket pvp(op)

We really don't. We've got trueshot and avoidance which is more than we can ask for at this point.

I posted this in hunter discord

TBC post but very spot on . Very hard to play in arena or BG due to lack of instant casts(compared to mages/warlocks/priests which all dont have to hardcast or stand still while we are stuck hardcasting autoshots which also have no special effects...like mages having shatter or ignite procs, warlocks having random shadowbolts, priests having random blackouts from sw pain etc). Perhaps then add a 5% chance to stun for 4 seconds on a successful autoshot? Lmk any arena or even bg hunter players who feel the same. Feels like hunter is only good at 19 and 29 due to ahving their toolkit unlocked and agility enchants

Also trueshot isnt instant so good luck trying to cast that in pvp with other players in your face

Solution would be to remove cooldown on arcane shot so its more like druid's moonfire or mage arcane explosion(no, buffing the damage would be OP) so we have actual burst

Right now it is impossible to burst someone since you.have.no.instants.(no, multishot isnt instant and is a TEN second cooldown)

How would rogues feel if they suddenly had a 6 second cooldown on sinister strike and 10 second second cooldown on ghostly strike and they would sit there with 3/4 energy bar stuck with autoattacks(like we do with our mana bar with nothing to dump )...the class would become unplayable. This is the garbage we have to play with

Also fix tranq shot to actually dispel things in pvp like warrior enrages/druid enrage heals since right now it does absolutely nothing

Hunter finally gets fixed in WOTLK/CATA (wow, the devs understood that you need INSTANTS for pvp), you get instant aimed shot, lock and load back to back arcane shots, instant chimera shot etc. And autoshot actually now has another instant autoshot proc(wild quiver)...instead of autoshot has nothing here. I guess we get melee abilities like but im ranged not melee i dont need 50000 things to proc in melee I need things to proc on my ranged attacks (e.g how hamstring works with sword spec, warriors get random attacks from using hamstring or sunder)

This isn't TBC or WotLK and PvP is not the focus of this server

I'm consistently the #1 ranged DPS in raids only behind warriors and rogues. Hunters are fine although I could name a few things off the top of my head to make it less clunky in some aspects.

The hunter is extremely clunky in Vanilla, it really could use some utility for both PvE and PvP.

Ain't no way you're raiding naxx and this smooth brained. You're really gonna have to rethink some statements if you're as experienced as you claim.

The mages in your guild suck. Top 2 dps classes are mages and warrs, we're somewhat tied with rogues overall, id say slightly better
