Birthday presents for Hunters! Currently planning to replace Flaming Shots, return Rapid Fire to Marksmanship, and add Bear Trap to Survival— Celestalon (@Celestalon) April 30, 2014
Tweet from Blizzard Developer Celestalon late this afternoon. Sounds great! Rapid Fire is great for MM, and I can't imagine anyone was really all that excited about Flaming Shots.
And Bear Trap! I know what you're thinking, but it's not that kind of bear trap. Bear Trap was introduced in Wrath, but then, as far as I can tell, was never implemented. You can find it on NPCs like Harold Lane, who you may have assassinated. It's basically just a root with a bleed. It'll be interesting to see how (or if) it plays out in Warlords.
Also on twitter tonight,when someone called Focusing Shot "Boring" Celestalon replied:
@Spinner981 From playtesting, it's far from boring; it has a significant impact on your rotation, has a high skill cap.— Celestalon (@Celestalon) April 30, 2014
Focusing Shot currently sounds a little clunky to me, but I'm in favor of anything that has a higher damage output possibility while requiring a higher skill cap. Regardless, I'm glad to hear they're putting a bit more thought into WoW's premiere class, the hunter.
