    Hoko's 9/22/11 predictions

    1. After Much consideration we have removed ranger and marksman, we realize they are not ever going to be useful as a ranged dps soul so we just left saboteur for you guys to be at range.

    2. Deadly Dance nerfed to the ground, we don't like Bladedancer either

    3. High Explosives was seen to do an insane amount of damage, so we buffed it further because we want you all to use Saboteur!

    4. Bombs were doing as much damage as single charges, so we gave the 200% AP contribution to charges as well!

    5. New 51pt Saboteur talent called WINNING: Passive skill that increases critical damage bonus by 100%, Endurance by 50%, Valor by over 9000, and Critical hit chance by 65%, and anytime a player character is hit by a Saboteur, they instantly explode and die.

    Marksman, Ranger, Nightblade, Blink'Blade, Asstalker, Assdancer, and finally The Hoko Spec™

    I'm interested to see how it does in pvp, 5x spike should kill 1 person since high explosives hits so hard, sure it's healable as it is all dot dmg but afk ppl or pressured ppl will die.

    I just hit lvl 31 this morning and tried 31 Ranger pet Blood Raptor. I guess I was expecting a lot more. Its damage is higher than Dire Wolf but not that much higher. Doing more damage than Dire Wolf is not hard. I think even my auto attack can beat my current Dire Wolf's damage. It's really quite pathetic.

    The design goal is to make it so Ranger is LESS relying on Shadow Fire but that design goal has not met. They buff Shadow Fire instead for deep Ranger and nerf it for non-deep builds.

    Why can't they just increase pet's damage? I mean I really choose Ranger over Marksman because I want more pet damage.

    Let's go one step further...

    "We've realized rogues still have specs that actually do over 1k dps. Therefore, we have tripled the energy requirements of all rogue abilities. Please reroll another class."

    I don't know - maybe a Saboteur buff where the bombs actually make your opponents explode into several thousand pieces would be interesting.
