There are some new patch notes giving us some news — and good news for a change!
- Hunters are getting a new baseline ability, Counter Shot, which is an interrupt. Yes, all hunters will have a baseline interrupt now, on a 24-sec cooldown.
- Silencing Shot will be MM-only, and will replace Counter Shot for MM. Thus MM gets a better Counter Shot (interrupt plus silence), but not two interrupts, which is fair enough.
- Stampede looks like it’s being changed so that the pets continue to cause 25% damage in Arneas and Battlegrounds, but do 100% damage in PvE. This is good news!
Of course, as always, this is still the PTR and still subject to change. Got fingers crossed that Readiness is not removed from the game as they’re talking about now, and is not nerfed to the ground like it is on the PTR. After all, I’ve got a bet with Euripides on this — there’s a friendship bracelet on the line!
