I did not play a hunter in vanilla, so i’m hoping some vanilla (retail) hunter experts can help me determine if this is a bug or not.
I spoke to a few hunters in game and got mixed answers and it seems that something like this would be hard to be sure of without video evidence.
Auto Shot Review
Before I discuss Aimed Shot, i’d like to review Auto Shot as auto shot shares the same “shot timer” behavior that i’m observing.
In auto shot, there is the wind up time for the shot and there is the time for the actual shot. The actual shoot time is 0.5 seconds with no haste.
If I have a bow with 3.0 attack speed, the wind up time will be 2.5 seconds and the shot time will be 0.5 seconds.
Now to Aimed Shot
Aimed shot has a base cast time of 3 seconds with no haste. I’ve noticed that aimed shot is actually taking (Aimed Shot Cast Time + Shoot Time). So with 0% haste, this would be 3 + 0.5 = 3.5 seconds.
[Note: Haste appears to be properly effecting both the aimed shot cast time as well as the “shoot time”]
Is this intended or should aimed only take the time indicated on the tooltip?
If anyone has a vanilla video at 1.0x speed of a hunter using aimed shot where we can identify the weapon/haste of the hunter, I could resolve this issue on if this is a bug or not and submit a proper report if it is.
