    Default 4.0.6 hunter haste changes

    Hey all

    Anyone have any more information on the haste changes? Any experiences from The ptr?

    Tbh I'm looking for any information detailing the changes (dps drop haste effect etc) if you could link some sources that would be amazing.

    Had a look myself on ptr foruns but there was 99% moaning about changes rather than anything constructive.

    Thanks

    Rolly polly

    there is no haste changes the scrapped the change on about the second build.

    MM is fairly easy to play although the only experiences i've had at 85 have been with 1000+ MS on the PTR since my internet's playing up.

    What i understand is that apart from keeping up the Improved Steady Shot effect, you still want to prioritise CS as it hits about 50% harder, although this may be fairly difficult before you attain 4PT11.

    Other than that it's the same bread and butter rotation as both the other specs - but both signature shots should now preceed kill shot:
    Sting > Aimed >Chimera > Kill (x1 then 6s count in head) > Steady x2 > Arcane dumps when necessary.

    Haven't done the maths on Aimed shot vs Cobra shot weaving but for now simply assume that spamming steady shot is best above 80% and ignore cobra shot altogether.

    HOWEVER, once you get the 4piece, and depending on how the maths plays out, it may be more beneficial to simply use steady shot just to keep the ISS buff up then weave in cobra shot, but it depends on how often Aimed shot procs, Vs the increased damage of cobra.

    Del I was reading somewhere actually hard casting aimed shot can give a fair DPS increase since they buffed it.

    Could you link me to where you read that? WHU isn't loading for me at the moment

    Did it say where in your rotation you could fit it in? Since without 4piece i had real trouble weaving in cobra shots and still clipping the chimera CD with enough time to keep up ISS - let alone a 2.6s cast aimed :S

    *EDIT* On second thoughts, it might be possible under full raid buffs, RF, and Heroism, but that's about it
