#0 - 2008/09/07 09:40:37 AMI am an arena hunter and ive had high ratings and rank and yada yada. I have got a warning about the latest racial changes.
The vodoo shuffle is crazily OP and will mean 2 things for hunters in arenas in wotlk: When coupled with surefooted it will give 65% reduce to movement impairing effects in time.
So what 15% doesnt sound that broken?
Well imagine a war vs a hunter with healers in 2v2 or 3v3 the diffrence with a troll or not would be the same as 50% buff depending on how u see it.
War hamstrings a doorf hunter it lasts 6 secs (we are counting 12 secs as an example to make it easy math), the troll would only be slowed by 4 secs! (65% of 12 secs)
4 secs vs 6.....a nelf would have a 50% longer slow!!!! 50%!!!!!!
hunters are getting some nice buffs to get back to range in wotlk and this diffrence will either make trolls INSANELY OP or all other hunters will be nerfed so that ONLY trolls will be viable vs melee.
This has to be stopped for any hunter balance in 2v2 or 3v3.
For what will happen vs the war and rogue teams? i greatly suspect that if the troll racial stays they will become the standard for hunters.
trust me when i say that 65% reduce for a hunter vs 50% is A MASSIVE DIFFRENCE.
this is not good balance at all.
this has been posted in the pvp forum and suggestion forum aswell.
