Recently, blizzard has given a sneak peak at some upcoming changes to all of the classes. You can check out the rest of the changes here.
The one that stands out is this:
A new tier of hunter pet talents have been added. In particular, this allows Beastmaster hunters to improve their damage per second (DPS) with their 51 point talent.
So, basically, we have a new tier of tenacity pet talents to look forward to. They have stated that the point of this tier will be to increase dps of a full BM spec. Does this mean that there will not be tanking talents in this new tier? Or perhaps it means that the current tanking talents will be spread out, and some extra dps talents would be peppered into the tree. I would tend to discredit the latter, because they intend to make this extra dps ‘out of reach’ without the additional pet talent points.
I would hope that they would add more tanking talents, but what I would really love is for them to increase the effects of Grace of the Mantis, so that our pets can be crit immune. Or perhaps another talent in the top tier that together would make the pet crit immune.
I’m very interested to see what comes out, and given the complete awesomeness of these newly minted pet trees, I have high hopes that this additonal content will be exciting. On a personal note, the ammo change is making me a sad panda 😦 . I’d love to know how all of you are responding to the news!
Let the Hunt begin!
