but unfortunately it's the kind of bug that will probably only be fixed with a client-side patch, probably with 5.2


You must be joking..

Would like to point out that there was (not sure if still is) weapon damage issue that used to be on Volley on Barrage.
That makes it 2 out of 3 level 90 hunter skills bugged. We just need to find out the last one and we can call it holy trinity.

Are you seriously saying that something which is terribly broken can not be fixed for another 3 months?

Also, if you don't wish people to use attention seeking titles, why do you reward such topics with a blue attention whereas constructive threads don't get any. No wonder people create such titles. Makes no sense.


This.

With zero insight in how Blizzard's protocol works, i feel pretty sure i could look at the code for this and fix the bug in a matter of minutes, yes, this absolutely could be fixed overnight.

The reason it wont be fixed is because Blizzard's whole 'procedure' is way over the top, issues like this should be hotfixed, be it client or server side.

Core game content that can't be fixed for months? As a self taught 23 year old 3d game developer i am very very curious what Blizzard's people at the top have to say about this sort of thing. Why is your procedure so ridiculous? I think people deserve a clean cut answer.

Just wanted to keep you guys updated, we're aware of this issue (when targeting a stationary target), it's already being worked on but unfortunately it's the kind of bug that will probably only be fixed with a client-side patch, probably with 5.2 (please note that this is a very early estimation of when it’s going to get fixed, don’t take it for granted as it might change at any time)

Also, please don't use attention seeking titles, as it makes Murloc very sad and it's against the forum rules


Sort of frustrating when you folks never answer any pvp posts here. We're told to send feedback, make threads and whatever, but in the end we get absolutely no confirmation that our feedback is taken into account.

And I honestly don't get what's with the Slowness. Blizzard is one of the largest game companies, and with the size of development, coding, art and desing team you have, many other companies (Riot, for example), would be ten times more effective.

We pay for you for playing this game. We'd like to be treated as paying customers, rather than customers that can be forgotten after they've paid.

Always wondered the same

Update:

Both Powershot and Glaive Toss have been rebuilt and should now always hit their primary targets, plus, they should also be much more responsive to secondary targets.

This new implementation of the two abilities isn’t on PTR yet but will be as soon as both abilities have been through QA. Once we have a new PTR build go live, feel free to test them and provide us with some feedback, this is when it is most important and when it can dramatically change what ends up going live.

Very good to hear!

I love the ability and even if it isn't as viable as glaive toss I still prefer playing around with it. I have always relied on my or my teammates stuns/roots to cast it, but even against stationary targets it works maybe every 2/3 tries. And even when it works I feel I would do more dps with glaive toss+arcaneshot+autoshot spam during that casttime. However when it crits I see numbers which make me smile.

An evil spirit inside me hopes the warlock chaos bolt would be changed the same way(no guaranteed crit and misses at least 1/3 times against stationary targets and approximately 3/4 times against moving ones.

Any specific reason this can't be hotfixed once it passes QA? There's alot of hunters suffering from this bug... And why should we need to test these abilities on ptr anyway?
Powershot either works... or it doesn't so why do we need a ptr to test if it's actually does?

I bet you could take one of your staff, make him play hunter for an hour just cast powershot every minute and if it just randomly misses it's still bugged, see no ptr needed.

This is why they're developers and you're not. I dread to think what would happen if you every got a job in quality control at an explosives production factory :P

and when powershot gets fixed there will be constant whining about powershot because of the op dmg it does.

I'm pretty sure people will still cry about arms burst and monk burst in 5.2. Oh God, and feral.

New PTR Build 16539 is now on PTR server. I went and checked POWERSHOT. After the second shot on a standing target - he's gone to f**king nowhere! Blizzard, You are going to fix it or leave on 5.3?!
p.s This is because the lead developer - PVE crab.... =\

Does this mean you have scrapped the 'has a chance to miss on moving targets' rubbish that was shown on the tooltip in the patch notes?

Yes, but only for the primary target. It should now always hit your primary target even if he's moving around.

Not directly related to glaive toss but it's another similar level 90 talent concern:

Barrage, when used at a range of 39-40 yards (max) or channelled on a mob with a larger than normal hitbox (Sha of Fear / Ragnaros / Magera) it currently deals no damage.

Any chance this could get a fix pushed onto the PTR as well? It's extremely frustrating as a ranged DPS to be forced to stand much closer (front of first ring of tiles on sha platform) just to deal damage with an ability that should be in range at 40 yards...

Great, at last with PS fixed BM hunts will be inspired by seeing huge crits that THEY produced, not their pet. And maybe try other specs for a change. It all counts.
