Today i thought i’d discuss something about Legion that’s absolutely driving me crazy. It happens to be about the concept of turning Survival hunters into a melee spec. It makes absolutely zero sense to me in every conceivable way imaginable. Now i’m all for spec diversity which is why i do agree one of the hunter specs needs to change. Unfortunately i feel Blizzard is changing the wrong one.
There’s no doubt in my mind that the spec that should be changed into a melee spec should be Beastmaster. It fits the theme of the spec perfectly in my eyes. The beauty of going this route is that we have years and years of precedent to do so without lore fiends being up in arms. Well, they’re going to be upset no matter what, but at least we would have sources for them to try and refute.
Gib: What the hell’s wrong with being stupid once in awhile? Does everything you do always have to be sensible? Haven’t you ever thrown waterballoons off a roof? When you were a little kid didn’t you ever sprinkle Ivory flakes on the living room floor ’cause you wanted to make it snow in July? Didn’t you ever get really shitfaced and maybe make a complete fool of yourself and still have an excellent time? – The Sure Thing (1985)
