#1 - 2011/10/01 10:30:00 PMit now gives 20% AP for melee dps, 10% ranged attack power for hunters.
yes, this is a melee dps buff primarily. but isnt this a band-aid fix to a much larger problem, specifically, the disparity that exists between melee and ranged?
shouldnt balance be achieved through talents and proper scaling for specs? 10% more attack power will close the gap somewhat, but this doesnt change the underlying problems that exist. I play ranged classes as well, but throwing an AP buff at the melee/ranged problem isnt going to accomplish a lot.
regardless, ranged will remain superior for their ability to multidot, maintain better uptime, and so on. without a change to raid dynamics, this buff doesnt really solve anything.
