Tanking adds or drakes. You don't really need anything that you probably don't already have if you're attempting it. (your armory gear looks more than sufficient)
A block set is good for adds, and a couple pieces of BT shadow resist help out on drakes.
Viper Sting re-designed: Stings the target, draining 4% of mana over 8 sec (up to a maximum of 8% of the caster's maximum mana), and energizing the Hunter equal to 300% of the amount drained. Only one Sting per Hunter can be active on any one target.
while the return of mana is nice, it now only drains 20% of what it used to. what im wondering now is that because it drains so little, will anyone take the gcd to actually dispell it anymore? could be a buff in that sense.
edit: looking at druids abolish poison, it costs 13% base mana. With their base mana, it costs around 455 to cast. Assuming 15000 mana and 4% drained, they only save themselves 150 mana by dispelling it, and would probably lose more mana dispelling if it got a tick off, rather then just letting it go its duration.
* Explosive Shot: Base damage lowered by 10%. Attack power scaling reduced by 12.5%.
Ow. Unwarranted? Am I missing something?
Okay, nevermind... after reading in to the changes thread it seems this is just a formal announcement of the nerf at the start of the month. I thought we were getting hit again =x ... either way, early indications seem to show that BM is once again the flavor of the month, at least on PTR?
I had always used the titan steel destroyer, but i've had people tell me that because of Top End Damage and crit rating the Sword of Justice is better. I'd just like once and for all a straight forward answer.
But the fact is what changes could possibly help us now? As I've said right now we have no useful raid utility, we're not going to have our DPS buffed to match pure DPS'ers, we won't get some new raid utility so all we can do is hope and pray for a BM hunter nerf? oh or reroll holy/prot, great idea thanks sherlock!
Enrage Should not be including in the list that will not stack. That is a flat out furry pvp warrior nerf. Even in pve for those of us using enrage when we have too much geared +hit or +expertise. Timing our cooldowns with procs is one thing that has separated the top tier warriors from the pack. Waiting to get Enraged to time interupts with triggered effects, especially deathwish has been one main reason for success in arena. I understand making buffs from different classes not stack together such as Tricks of the Trade and Hysteria, but our two very own abilities in the same talent tree will not stack? Enrage and deathwish is bread and butter. This is blasphemous. Do not let this happen.
