Q u o t e:
Going from a 3.5 second cast time to a 3 second cast time? Fail.
Yeah, an already great 11-point talent that will now have a reduced cast time and a mortal stike effect. How completely useless...
Edited to add my follow-up:
I was quick to reply to be very honest. What I meant by "already great" is that even in its current state, players are still making great use of the talent. We wouldn't have given this talent these two improvements had we been completely happy with its effectiveness.
With that being said, these ARE great changes. To those who flame that 3.0 is still too slow, lets be reasonable. We're simply being conservative. We may lower it further (probably not before 2.3), but we want to see effective the ability is with these changes implemented. Keep in mind too, there were other changes made for 2.3 that improve hunter viability and effectiveness in PvP.
In short, we need to see how all the changes play out before making anymore changes.
