So we talked to BigRedKitty last week on the podcast. As the original voice in hunter blogging, I asked if he had anything he’d like to see change about hunters, hoping to add them to the Hunter Project list. He had two:
Exotic Weapons for MM
What distinguishes MM and makes it unique currently? I’ll wait…
…not much, is the correct answer. BRK’s solution: Exotic Weapons. They wouldn’t even need to do more damage than their non-exotic counterparts (though that’s an option), or they could have a utility-based proc. But either way, creating some cool “bling” for the spec that is ALL about ranged physical dps would be a nice addition. And even if MM’s dps is low, it would give collectors and hunter hobbyists some awesome items to make the spec seem unique and cool.
Some of the more interesting suggestions included a massive gun with its own team of gnomes to clean it off, and weapons with built-in stands or scopes to make them more aesthetically unique.
I think this would be great, however they decide to implement it.
Make Survival Survive
This would probably be an addendum to the templates suggested in the spec differentiation article. Basically, SV could be incredibly hard to kill, and have a slew of abilities to aid this.
The caveat here is that it would create PvP balancing issues, so this kind of change would almost undoubtedly have to be accompanied by a dps nerf. Still, who wouldn’t love better camouflage, or the ability to self-tank bosses for brief periods of time using cooldowns? It’s an interesting take on the idea of survival, and would be a viable alternative.
