Hunter Pong

kindred-spirits2 So, a small patch, 3.0.9 is rumored to be released sometime this week to correct the BM over nerf. The good news is the changes are pet-friendly, rhino-approved:

Kindred Spirits (Beast Mastery): This talent now grants 20% pet damage at max rank.
Serpent’s Swiftness (Beast Mastery): This talent now grants 20% pet attack speed at max rank.

Basically, they are trying to undo some of the nasty overkill they unleashed on the BM tree. The good news is, the repairs are entirely pet related, which means our pets will recover some of the damage and threat they lost in the last nerf, not to mention it will smooth out threat/damage output, which is always nice. This, of course, makes me pretty happy, and I’ll be looking forward to this getting implemented.

Let the Hunt begin!



  1. In a way I find it rather interesting that they choose to buff our pets instead of the hunter. The pet does almost 40% of the total dps in an optimal situation. With this chance they gain even more on us.

    I, for one, salute this choice. Pet DPS > Hunter DPS ^^

  2. I am happy about this I guess. I (the hunter) still feel a bit ignored but at least my spirit beasty (the pet) is getting some live and might even get out of the stable this week 🙂

  3. Its a very conservative move if you ask me, they are basically just undoing some of the nerfs they made before, and since all of the nerfs, specific to bm, were pet nerfs, thats what got the buff.

  4. I’m quite happy to see these changes. Bubbles might be able to once again produce enough threat to break out of the stables.
