Big Changes In Our Future

Ghostcrawler: Hey beast master hunters…
Beast master hunters: Yes GC?
Ghostcrawler: Got a riddle for you mwahaha
Beast master hunters: <shudders> OK…
Ghostcrawler: When is a nerf not a nerf?
Beast master Hunters:…
Beast master Hunters:… bwah?
Beast master Hunters:…
Ghostcrawler: When we make changes Beastial Wrath and The Beast Within LOL
Beast master hunters: <Flies into a fit of nerd rage> AAARRRGGGHHHH, WHERES MY PONY! YOU PROMISED ME A PONY!!



Beast Mastery
The Beast Within: The duration of this talent has been reduced to 10 seconds. In addition, hunters with this talent will do 10% additional damage at all times.

Bestial Wrath: The duration of this talent has been reduced to 10 seconds.

Yes, Bestial Wrath and the boost from The Beast Within will now last for only 10 seconds, down from 18 seconds. That’s the nerf in GC’s joke. The Beast Within will now INCREASE the hunter’s damage by 10% at all times. That’s definitely not a nerf. Now when I first read this,I also most flew into a fit of nerd rage. The signature talents for beast master hunters, our biggest boost in DPS and mana conservation cut almost in half?? WOW you really DO hate beast master hunters…

Then I went back and reread it a second time and a third time. I started to think about it, and let it sink in. Yes the 50%pet damage is gonna get smacked down hard. Yes our 10% damage boost and 20% mana reduction is going to be cut back. But, we will be receiving a 10% damage boost ALL the time… When we pop Bestial Wrath, we will still be getting the 10% boost and 20% reduction. It’s not looking to bad now is it. Our overall DPS will be boosted, therefore bringing us more in line with marksman’s and survival’s DPS. Well this along with the changes to armor penetration, needs to be checked out farther. So, it’s off to the PTR to do some testing to see how the changes are looking to BM and MM. I will let you guys know the results.

So until next time don’t forget to reload, so you don’t run out of ammo.
