So far, the direction looks REALLY good. I like that damage is more spread out rather than all being on Aimed Shot, and I love that we're back to focusing on being more of a mobile, single target damage dealer with awesome opportunities for burst. (Double Tap is a really, really cool mechanic)

That being said, there are some things missing. Maintenance debuffs along the lines of Serpent Sting or Black Arrow, non physical damage doesn't exist whatsoever (or at least armor penetration), and utility is a bit awkward.

While I'm sure there are other plans for Bursting Shot, the ability itself is just redundant, especially when Tar Trap and Concussive Shot already exist. Why not bring back an iconic ability that only exists in Honor Talents that I'm sure a lot of hunters miss? Scatter Shot. Instead of an aoe disorient-turned-budget-explosive-trap-concussive-shot, just bring back a tried and true ability!

Chimaera Shot.

And that's about all I can remember to discuss, would love to see some magic/nature damage mechanics so as to not break hunter vs low armor gameplay in pvp and therefore become an abomination to balance

There is absolutely no interaction in just waiting to get a proc for Aimed Shot, especially when it doesn't even grant a free charge.


It does grant a free charge.

When Lock and Load procs, it generates 1 full charge of Aimed Shot. If you're at 0.5 out of 2 charges, it brings you up to 1.5 total charges immediately, so that Aimed Shot can be used as soon as you want to use it.
