Once upon a time dear reader, I was a member of the mighty Horde. I fought and lived and breathed Lok’tar Ogar, and followed my Warchief with unwavering loyalty, and then…
So, with 4 days left before Legion’s big launch day, Blizzard have decided to come out and start asking for feedback on the changes to the Hunter class.
No, no, I’m not kidding. I’m being deadly serious.
Here, go look for yourself.
Now we’ve had 9+ months of Alpha/Beta where thousands, nay tens of thousands of articles, forum posts, tweets, videos and so on have been made highlighting exactly what is wrong with the Legion Hunter, in comparison to the old Hunter class we used to have.
So with the expansion about 4 weeks out from the time of writing, and after the pre-expansion patch has gone live, now would of course be the most useless time to get a key to check out the changes.
So OF COURSE…
And with a slight twist.
So, how does one go about getting through to Thok, given that he’s over midway through the raid instance, and Galakras, the famously un-soloable fight lies in between you and he?
Well, let’s get into it with this guide to getting there and getting your very own Sparky!
Well, let’s break down what I thought into the stuff I loved, and the stuff I hated…
Or at least until the next expansion 😉
This also means we say goodbye to the best thing about Warlords of Draenor:
So after finding out BM was in a kind of a weird place, where it was decent enough to play, but not brilliant, and discovering the reason why my Arcane & Multi-Shots weren’t showing up on PTR (more on that particular disaster towards the end of this article), I’ve decided to move the MM preview up on the schedule ahead of the Survival preview.
So given how badly I’ve wanted to get onto the Legion Beta, I was very eager to get on the PTR and test out the changes to Hunters, especially given that this expansion sees Hunters receiving more wholesale changes than any other class has ever received in the game.
So for this first post I’m going to take a look at my old favourite, the BM Hunter.
I’m not one for rapidly changing classes or specs, having played my Prot Paladin for over 6 years before changing to my Hunter last year.
However given the all-encompassing changes that Hunters are seeing in Legion, which may or may not result in an enjoyable experience for me, another change may become inevitable.
So, given that it’s a bit further on in the previously Alpha and now Beta process of changes, let’s see where my thoughts lie now.
As per the previous article, Rogue, Shaman, Mage, Warrior and DK are all fairly much out of the running due to intrinsic feeling of “meh” I have towards them.
