Following the Crowd
A lot of people are picking up on the 2.3.0 patch notes story, so I guess I’ll just mention a few things I noticed.
It seems like they’re making a lot of changes to Stranglethorn Vale’s environment (for the better?) to try to make it less annoying. Rebel Camp is now an Alliance flight point, which I’m not sure is a good thing if the only it’ll do is draw more Horde campers. I am excited about the removal of Elite status from the ogres though. It’s just in time for me to do the Mai’Zoth quest.
Not sure about the new dungeon level range adjustment and new meeting stone requirements yet. It’s definitely going to reduce the number of level 70s running newer characters through dungeons.
The exciting changes for hunters will be Trueshot Aura’s new status as a real aura, Arcane Shot change, and Serpent Sting. Perhaps the increase in Serpent Sting damage will make hunters a better DpS class. This kinda makes me rethink Loronar’s talent build as a Marksman (for which I’ll probably get some rap for not going Beast Mastery as endorsed by Big Red Kitty), especially in considering whether or not Improved Stings would be something worth investing in.
Speaking of talents, I had to respec yesterday after going through most of level 40 without Trueshot Aura. The reason? I was putting talents into Improved Aspect of the Hawk, to which Someone responds that it may not be as versatile as I thought it would be. I was also putting talents into Hawk Eye, which increases my range. Needless to say, I can no longer properly judge range for starting Auto Shot since I no longer have the 6 extra yards…
So many talents! I wish I could just learn them all.
