Category: Patch 3.3.3

I know my class like the back of my hairy feet.

Don’t tell me how to spec or gem.  Don’t send a in game whisper and tell me that something about my hunter is wrong.  Don’t tell me to replace my trinkets because I know that already.  I don’t care if you have a leet hunter in your guild.  With my current gear and spec and gems, I know what works for me.  Before I go out to raid with my changes, I test them out on the target dummies. I ask other hunters who have similar gear with better dps for advice and I frequent the Wowhead Hunter Forums.

MM Spec with current gear is displayed below.

If I switched out my spec to SV this is the results.

As you can see there is about a 800 DPS difference between SV and MM.  There is about a 50 – 100 DPS difference between the MM ArP and non Agi specs.

There must be a reason why you are whispering me on your non-leet-non-hunter alt.  When I need help I’ll ask.  I know my class and my hairy feet should be a testament to that.

‘Til next time…
