I mentioned yesterday how I’ve finally realized that Arcane Shot is replaced with Aimed Shot at level 10 when you spec Marksmanship on a Hunter. Oh, oh, my. I can’t stand leveling my Hunter now. Level 10 and 11 have been painful at best. If I don’t crit and one-shot a mob, my rotation is Aimed Shot, Aimed Shot (assuming I still have Focus), Steady Shot, Steady Shot. Rinse and repeat.
In the past mobs never even got close to me before they were dead. Now some are mashing on my flesh while I’m still firing at them. I know Hunters were OP in the past, but wow, this nerf has made the class an absolute bore to play 🙁
Decisions, decisions. Try another spec, or give up on this Hunter?
Update: OK, craziness averted. I re-rolled to Beast Mastery and I have my Arcane Shot back, plus Kill Command. Phew. Back to the low leveling of a Hunter I remember 🙂 I’m still not hitting hard as I remember, but maybe that’s because I’m running without heirlooms.
