Hi Beast Masters. We’ve been reading your feedback and trying different sets of changes for Beast Mastery Hunters internally and on PTR.
To start, we are reverting all 7.2.5 changes we’ve made so far to how 야성의 부름
triggers. Instead, 광포한 야수
and 날카로운 사격
will have 2 charges baseline. The 지휘의 책무
(legendary shoulders that currently add +1 charge to 광포한 야수
) will be changed to instead further increase the proc chance of 야성의 부름
Overall, this will result in more Focus for all Beast Mastery Hunters, resulting in a more active rotation. Additionally, this gives all Beast Mastery Hunters access to a 광포한 야수
with 2 charges playstyle that is more engaging and fun, allowing you to make decisions on when to use the buttons, instead of feeling like you should most often simply push them on cooldown.
We’ve been trying other iterations of changes surrounding 광포한 야수
and 야성의 부름
, including increasing 광포한 야수
Focus generation or versions that avoided changing the legendary shoulders drastically, but ultimately reached the conclusion that giving 2 charges to the abilities baseline, which many of you have asked for, was the best change for the spec at the current time. We appreciate your patience while we try different iterations on PTR.
We are also making a few other less major changes to the spec in the next PTR patch, including:
- 야생의 상 will reduce the global cooldowns of your damaging abilities by 0.2 seconds, allowing you to more reliably spend the Focus you’re generating while it's active, especially with 광포한 야수/날카로운 사격 going off.
- 살상 명령 and 날카로운 사격 will cause your pet/Hati to charge up to 40 yds (up from 25 yds) to the target, matching the max range of your ranged abilities.
- When your pet casts 질주, Hati will also gain 질주 for the same duration.
