Thoughts on new trees:
Barrage being in the class tree but literally not working for Survival, even with a Ranged Weapon equipped, is weird. Shouldn’t this just be moved to the MM/BM tree if you’re going to make it so SV can’t use it at all?
Just feels weird to have a skill in a class tree that one spec just outright can’t use at all no matter what? (If this is just a tooltip thing on wowhead, disregard, but it’s changed since last week to say BM and MM only)
Viper’s Venom should really be in the right side of the tree - Left side is AoE focused, Right side is ST focused, but Viper’s Venom, a ST talent, is in the left side?
Swapping Tactical Advantage and Viper’s Venom would make more sense - TA gives Wildfire Damage. (I know the main focus is the Flanking Strike damage, but still makes more sense :P) Or even adding Carve/Butchery to Viper’s Venom would work, lol.
Why does Survival have multiple 3-point endcap talents? Other than SV, only Devastation has an endcap that’s more than 1 point, and it’s a single one that costs 2. (And much like the multi-point SV ones, it’s not worth grabbing for multiple points) Yet SV has 2 that cost 3?
On that note, Personally speaking, the Survival Endcap talents are… not appealing? I literally went through the talent calculator and ended up with a spec not grabbing any of the 3 endcaps. - Birds of Prey is unappealing to me as I don’t like the playstyle - I’m sure it’ll be viable and used. Just giving my personal perspective.
One is we have to spend 3 talent points to get 100% crit on next kill command after reset, ONLY while Coordinated Assault is up? 3 points for a relatively minor dps increase as an endcap talent? If it was 1 point, sure, but not 3.
I’m sure Birds of Prey will be used - it’s just not a playstyle I enjoy, ever since its inception. No hate to people who like it though. So please no hate on this lol.
And Fury of the Eagle is great but it’s not the endcap, the endcap is the 3 points to get 45% crit for it (which has a decent cooldown) and CD reduction on other abilities when it crits? That’s… not appealing. If you have bad luck, you could just not crit very often and thus waste 3 points. And even if you do get crits, WF Bomb’s cooldown is so low you probably wouldn’t notice it much as FotE has a decently hefty cooldown - And Flanking Strike’s CD is high enough that if you were critting enough with FotE to notice it, you’d be in an AOE fight, where you wouldn’t be using Flanking Strike, so…?
