In patch 2.3, aimed shot will not only reduces healing done to the target by 50% for a ten seconds, but we're also reducing the shot time by 0.5 seconds.

Bon appetite!

Q u o t e:
FIRST!

Edit
Fourth! :(

NOW I'am fully satisfied with this patch! THANK YOU BLIZZARD! :)


You're welcome, all I ask in return is that hunters protect me from the other eight classes who will now hate me with much fury...you know, even more than before! :P

Q u o t e:
First page.

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.

Q u o t e:


While I appreciate the good news, no one can say its "already great". In the current live build, it does less burst than a steady -> auto for more mana and cast time. Most hunters only got it because it was on the way to Mortal Shots.

For now in 2.3, its a useful PvP skill, but it remains useless in all PvE contexts since it costs too much mana and resets the shot timer.

Please be careful with your comments sir!

Q u o t e:


You have to be joking, how stupid do you think we are here. You nerfed the ability, and then un nerfed it to it's former state. If you think this helps in arena at all you need doctors, a whole slew of them.

FAIL. Pathetic.


Your bitterness suggests that you should take a break from reading these boards, friend. If I thought it would do any good, I'd provide you with some insight so that you'd not make statements such as, "You nerfed the ability, and then un nerfed it to it's former state."

Also,

"If you think this helps in arena at all you need doctors, a whole slew of them."

Theorycrafting, without also considering many other elements. End of story. I'm not trying to sound like a jerk here, honestly - if I sounded harsh, it's because I'd honestly love for you, like many to understand so much more, and be able to expand your mind so that you're seeing a much larger picture.

Q u o t e:
Why don't you just go ahead and remove healers from the arena. WIth the amount of 4 dps teams running around, there's no reason why we shouldn't just say "to heck with it" and just make it 5 dps teams.


Do you really need to complain in two forums?

Q u o t e:


Not to be too nitpicky, but "already great" is stretching the truth a bit. If it were really that great, it'd be used far more often than it currently is.

However, I'm glad the cast time is being reduced. Thanks for the information.


Clarified in a follow-up. Also, edited my original post. Thanks! ;)

Q u o t e:



HAHAHAH here you are again with the "theroycrafting"

shaman theroy crafted their butts off and then PROVED IT ON THE PTR and still this company has done NOTHING to fix elemental shaman....now you have the (you know what) to even bring up the word theroycrafting again...do you really want to be shut down again???


Further thread hijacking will result in severe punitive action from this point on -- from anyone. Also, "do you really want to be shut down again???", sounds like a threat. I'd be much more careful with how you words things, friend. I'm one of the most lenient members of my team when it comes to disciplinary action, so I promise you that you definitely do not want to be on my radar of players I've decided have crossed my line a deserve extensive investigation.

Unless you wish to discuss the hunter class, I'd highly urge you to take your leave of this forum.
