Hunters need a buff in PVP.
In PvE MM hunter are very strong (BM and Survival are not seen). Whilst BM is a stat heavy spec that requires high crit/haste to keep barbed shot up and perform well MM damage is loaded into abilities and should perform well at the start of an expac… I assume hunters will gradually start to move to BM in later patches.
In PVP… 2 hunters are in the top 100 2v2 (MM) and there’s no BM or Survival. In 3v3 the story is the same, also RBG. Hunter is trash tier for Pvp.
MM needs burst - undo the buff to lock and load that took 50% off the damage (I think everyone forgot about this after the rogue nerfs and thought hunters were crying about a 5% nerf… maybe make this only a 25% nerf? But the big 50% nerf on lock and load, the additional 10% on aimed shot that same week and then another 5% next week took hunters off the map. Yes people complained, but them complaints were not reflected in the numbers.
BM - increase pet survivability or reduce cast time on ress pet. Its too easy to beat a good BM hunter by kiting their pets to the pillar and killing them… hunters need a solution to this or BM will never be played in PVP
Survival - make latent position from shadowlands a talent, not a legendary. The borrowed power was the only thing that made them competitive. Now they have to chose it over huge buffs from legendaries (which none of then have)…
For Pve I believe hunters are probably performing too well at the moment but don’t reflect this by making them unplayable in pvp… blizz can easily separate out abilities because they did it with the 50% LnL nerf…
Am I wrong?
