Blink strike does 500% more dmg than it's supposed to

Hello, as you all know hunters are really strong in PvP atm. It is mainly caused by blink strike, 5th tier talent from the hunter talent tree. People are reporting that it has critted for 120k damage on 55% resilience pvp targets, which is around 500% more than what it is supposed to hit for.

I suggest you focus on fixing this particular skill asap and put it on top of your PvP fix priority list. (It is the main cause of hunters being so strong right now)

Thanks in advance !

Was pretty funny when a hunter crit me for 155k with something in arena out of nowhere.

Is it just doing more damage vs resillience targets? As it seems correct vs PvE stuff.

It ignores resilience so yes, it's a bug that only affects PvP so it will probably not get fixed.

Just tested it in a duel, it does 45k none crit on a target dummy and tested it on my lovely rogue assistant who has 2912 PvP Resilience (49.01%) it did 24356 none crit on him.

Is it only ignoring resilience in BG / Arena?

Says a warlock. Your chaos bolts are even more fun to eat. 190k highest one I've seen on full resi, still waiting for a full geared warlock to break the record.

Yes. Pvp power, as the pet also has, is only active during arena or battlegrounds. Along with the blink strike bug, the hunter also has a 2set bonus that grants him (and his pet I assume, since they normaly share stats) 3200 pvp power, wich is kinda like the opposit of resilience, while rapid fire is active, along with beast withins 20% damage increase and readiness to do it all over again.. I wouldn't say the blink strike is the issue, the hunter is the issue. Allowing BM to have readiness along with such a powerful 2nd set bonus is just rediciously. Have you seen shadow priest 2nd set bonus? 70 int... Wow.. Who was last in line for cool set bonuses?

Not sure about BGs but in Arenas, yes.

Blink Strike is the reason why hunter's are so awesome right now.

I've discussed this with many top hunters and all of them agree on this one. :)

Blink Strike damage just needs to be reduced by 50% or so and hunters will be perfectly balanced for rest of the season !

Because I'm destro on my warlock, right? Oh and yeah, forgot hunter attacks have a 3 second cast time. Not saying it's fine, but saying that that is more OP than hunter dmg right now is ridiculous.

So you would say the 3200 pvp power while rapid fire is active + bestial wrath is entirely balanced at the start of an expansion? Because, then you sir, are striving for unbalance.
