New Hunter talents! Gogogo!

Let’s see . . .

  • Internal cooldown on Hunting Party removed. Yay!
  • Lock and Load looks really nice.
  • Separation Anxiety is a very cool
  • Aspect Mastery now 1 point talent, replacing Master’s Call, definitely worth the investment.
  • Spirit Bond increases healing received
  • Animal Handler reduces Master’s Call cooldown
  • Chimera Shot revamped
  • Looks like the Kill Command change will be permanent based off of Focus Fire’s new description
  • Noxious Stings has an interesting effect with Wyvern Sting.
  • Survival Tactics, the revamped Improved Feign Death hints at a new Disengage as reducing its cooldown to 1 second in its current form seems pointless.
  • Rapid Recuperation has an awesome addition to it, making it almost like your own Innervate, encouraging you to blow your cooldowns to pump out as much damage as possible.
  • Trueshot Aura, while still a flat amount, will affect the whole raid.
  • Trap Mastery is being redone, but not yet implemented. Curiosity . . . 
  • T.N.T seems to group together very nicely with Entrapment for PvP purposes.
  • Survival Instincts is moved much farther down tree.

Holy crap, update again!
Intimidation – We’d like to make this instant instead of relying on the pet’s next attack.

Disengage – This is being changed in a future build. What it will do is cause the Hunter to jump back instantly 10-15ish yards to gain distance. 30 second cooldown.

Aspect of the Cheetah – The daze is there so Hunter’s can’t infinitely “kite” monsters or players. Sprints and movement speed bonuses is something we are very weary of giving the Hunter class.
