See For Yourself

As promised, here is a short video I made to document the new Hunter aspect being introduced in the next patch. In case you missed my previous post, here’s a blue post with a brief rundown of what you’re about to see:

Hunter (3.1 Skills List / 3.1 Talent + Glyph Calc.)
Aspect of the Mana Ray

We felt that Hunters were still lacking survivability in arena and battlegrounds. In addition to that, viable mana regen was continuing to be a problem, especially for BM and MM builds. Our solution to this was implementing Aspect of the Mana Ray, a skill that had been in the game code for quite some time, but had always been viewed as too overpowered to go live.

The activation of this new skill is going to require some thorough testing and will most assuredly delay the release of 3.1 until after Noblegarden has begun. While the goal was to address certain Hunter weaknesses, we want to make sure it’s not overly imabalanced before it goes live. We have yet to finalize certain details about the new aspect such as: will the hunter be able to cast harmful spells while it’s active, or be permitted to return flags in WSG while under its effect.

Pretty cool eh..? 😉

  1. It’s pretty cool huh.

    Strangely enough, I’ve been able to get this effect a couple of times since. It may be a mac-only thing, but if I put my computer to sleep while still logged in, then come back after 30-40 minutes, it will do this.

    The longer my comp is asleep, the longer the effect will last. The video here is just over 2 minutes, but it went on for about 6.5 minutes total.

  2. Ok ok Gar you won. You made me click the Launcher.exe of my PTR folder just to see if it was at least a joke. You won… 😉

  3. Haha amazing! I recently discovered this blog like two days ago and this video really made my day :D. Thanks Garwulf!

    PS – Cool name… I’ll have to steal it some day haha.
