Woke up this.. afternoon to the sound of, “Ooh ooh Tier 10 stats!” To which I replied, “Shaddup I wanna see them myself.” Or perhaps something less mean.
- Ahn’Kahar Blood Hunter’s Handguards
– Ahn’Kahar Blood Hunter’s Headpiece
– Ahn’Kahar Blood Hunter’s Legguards
– Ahn’Kahar Blood Hunter’s Spaulders
– Ahn’Kahar Blood Hunter’s Tunic
So, not only are these pieces well itemised, it’s kind of clear from the word go which piece to not go for looking at the stats and socket bonuses. Every single piece has a red socket with an agility bonus, with the chest having somewhere to put your Nightmare Tear. The legs are the one piece I’m not impressed with, and I wouldn’t say they’re too awful either. I’m a happy hunter.
I have no interesting story about For The Horde seeing as by now this has probably been over blogged by every man and his dog. The usual, a raid happens, we take about 5 tanks which is of course way too many, people lag behind and need summons, we takes ages getting anywhere, but the faction leaders still go down and the happy children receive their bears. Though, how do the bears fit in the mailbox? Might be time to report Thrall to D.E.H.T.A. I did grab a few screenshots though, hover over the images for captions.
PS. It took Dan a year to finally get Stormwind and Ironforge, he had Darnassus and Exodar at 70 so highfive to him..
PPS. For the record, after playing alliance for a while, felt a little bad killing Bronzebeard and Velen for the sake of a bear, I quite like them. No problem at all with Tyrande and the King though
And as a side note, we have the Calico Cat and Albino Snake available from Breanni for 50g each when patch 3.3 hits. They’re on MMO Champion if you want to take a look. (i.e. I refuse to hotlink and cba to save and upload) In the same post, we also have the current Tier 10 models available to see. As I haven’t mentioned either hunter or priest yet, here are my opinions: I like them. The hunter set is slightly boring in my opinion, but so are the rest of the hunter sets, so as long as we get the purple one I’m happy. Priest looks decent now that they’ve changed the helm model a little, before it was a collar, now there’s a hood. Great way to hide my priest’s ugly face.
The 4 set has been changed:
When your Viper Sting, Serpent Sting, and Wyvern Sting abilities deal damage, you have a 5% chance to gain 20% attack power for 10 seconds.
Still awesome. Â
Ooh ooh! I’m sorry, but in my opinion, hunters have yet to have a decent looking tier set, and 6 was just creepy. Tier 10 isn’t much different BUT:
- Hunter T10 2P Bonus – Your Auto Shots have a 5% chance to cause you and your pet to deal 15% additional damage for until cancelled.
- Hunter T10 4P Bonus – Your Shot abilities deal 4% increased damage to targets afflicted with Viper Sting, Serpent Sting, or Wyvern Sting.
“Yay” Â o_o two good set bonuses? Okay, everytime Dan sees a “your pets’ increased damage” he automatically says “ooh, a BM buff” well no. How many people actually use the Tier9 4 set, and how many MM and Surv hunters run around DPSing without a pet (if anybody does that you should slap yourself on the head and go tame a wolf). The 2 piece isn’t just increasing your pet’s damage, it increases yours, and that’s pretty insane. The 4 set is basically increasing the damage of.. everything. Overall, a very nice damage increasing set. It does make me wonder what the set bonuses in Cataclysm will be like, surely they’re running out of decent and original set bonuses, short of redoing every single class.
The appearance of Tier 10 I’m personally unsure on. I don’t like the helm, but I’m a big fan of hide helm so that’s not a problem. The shoulders are a little too big in my opinion, and the rest of the set looks a little boring but I’m used to that. Boring looking hunter sets. The purple design does kind of make up for it in my opinion, I’m really liking the purple model. What do you think about the Tier sets?
