So, how are Hunters in MoP without any melee weapons?

And Paladins/Druids without their Relics?

All those really crucial melee abilities hunters had? Gone. We lost like, half our DPS without those melee abilities. Having no minimum range did nothing to compensate.

And those abilities that were powered by relics? Also gone. Pallies/druids lost like, two thirds of their DPS.


Losing stat sticks that served zero function has changed everything, man.

Save me the sarcasm. I take it the missing extra stats those items gave aren't affecting them in MoP?

Blizzard is much smarter than to just chop off a lot of stats that varies between classes and then say "welp we're done here."

Yes, they are balancing around it. Hunters are actually about a zillion times better off without melee weapons, honestly. No minimum range is hrnnnnngh

I was actually getting a bit worried, tbh >_>
Well, I guess MoP is awesome so far. :3

I've been a dud and haven't kept up with the news.

So...hunters can shoot point-blank now?!

You were asking for it, don't be mad at him.

They took away the stat stick but also pretty much doubled all the stats and dps on ranged weapons to compensate. My DW bow on the beta had almost 1700 DPS.

oh great... why would they do that? I'm a nerd, that's the exact kind of thing I like to avoid... maybe I'll just buy it during the day -Sahuagin

That sounds awesome. How did they do it on Paladins and Druids, though?
