Here are a couple of minor Cataclysm hunter updates from the blues…
Trap Launcher is replacing Freezing Arrow. The functionality is so similar that there is little reason to have both.
It’s going to be awesome to be able to drop Explosive Traps without having to trap dance, but what I’m really looking forward to is how this is going to affect PvP. Having the ability to launch Frost and Explosive Traps is going to be huge in BGs and arena.
Spells training level
The levels at which you get certain spells are changing, in some cases dramatically. At the moment our design is that Trap Launcher is introduced at lower levels than 80-85.
This probably goes without saying, but I also expect to see us getting Steady Shot much sooner than level 50. Hunters will no doubt need access to this shot early on due to its focus regen buff.
While they’re at it, I have another suggestion… How about making Scatter Shot a baseline ability trainable at level 20..? 😀
Sounds good to me.
