October 25th - Class Tuning & Bug Fixes

  • Hunter
    • Binding Shot (Talent) root effect can now break upon receiving enough damage. Damage threshold to break is higher than other roots.

      • Developers’ note: We recognize that Binding Shot has become part of a Hunter’s utility package and want it to remain a powerful root that has a lower chance to break on damage than other effects.
    • Freezing Trap now removes active Murder of Crows debuffs on the target when it is applied.

    • Beast Mastery

      • Bestial Wrath’s tooltip has been updated to better match its functionality. No functional change has been made to Bestial Wrath.
    • Marksmanship

      • Fixed an issue that caused Marksman’s Advantage (Conduit) to remove stealth from targets when Hunter’s Mark was cast.

      • Fixed an issue that caused a player’s Marksman’s Advantage (Conduit) to be removed from targets when another Hunter applied Hunter’s Mark with the Marksman’s Advantage conduit.

    • Survival

      • Fixed an issue that caused Coordinated Assault to require line-of-sight to your Hunter pet.

Player versus player

  • Hunter
    • Fixed an issue where Hunters could capture flags in Battlegrounds while under the effects of Feign Death.

    • Beast Mastery

      • Fixed an issue where Burrow Attack’s (Exotic Ability) cooldown was unintentionally reduced by Kindred Beasts (PvP Talent).


  • Hunter
    • Petrified Pet Food damage now correctly increases with each stack of the Anima Power.

This is the explanation??

We recognize that binding shot is good, so we wanted to make it trash?

Blizzard get a damn grip

It is now purely solo talent, it’s dead in any party play (breaks at 26k damage).

The Hunter Binding Shot change from this week’s PTR update has been reverted.

  • Developers’ note: Due to an oversight when changing Binding Shot from a stun to a root, Binding Shot was not updated to obey normal root rules. During our bug fixing process, we updated it to break on damage in 9.1.5. However, we realize this is a big change and that Binding Shot has become a powerful tool for Hunters. As a result, we are reverting this change and allowing Binding Shot to not break on damage.

I’m still waking up, so does that mean they won’t go ahead with the changes?

Seems to be the case yes.
