That sound you hear is a whole lot of changes for Marksman Hunters dropping on the 8.1 PTR.
UrsaMajor has been my go-to pet since I started playing, in 2006.
For many classes and specializations, the Battle for Azeroth version plays similarly to the current Legion version, minus the Artifact traits, tier sets, and Legendaries.
In the Battle for Azeroth alpha, a number of classes have already received some updated spell effects.
Legion is adding 4 new Hunter pet families, bringing the grand total to a whopping 64 families.
Happy New Year!
The new melee Survival Hunter spec is now playable in the Legion alpha test, with Beast Mastery and Marksmanship to follow sometime in the future.
Last week was pretty exciting for Hunters.
Hunters have been used to Beast Mastery, Survival, and Marksmanship as variations on the same theme and the same mechanics since, well, forever.
I was recently perusing the old Hunter talent trees and was pretty taken aback by how much flavor the specs have lost over the years.
