More Attractive Choices in PvE

Recent hunter hotfixes are mainly related wiht target. However, there’s a little more to it. The team has a few different goals with these hotfixes. While Marksmanship burst is supposed to be reduced in PvP, that’s only part of the story. At the same time Survival and Beast mastery will be made more attractive choices in PvE. The Marksmanship damage would decrease in fights where little or no movement is required, and reducing the amount of Aimed Shot spam once mobs drop below 80%. Marksmanship’s burst damage in PvP is actually beyond expected. Because Aimed Shot was the best place to bring burst back into line, its damage was cut down.
To make up for the loss of dps and improve Survival and Beast Mastery output, Aspect of the Hawk should now provide 2000 attack power at level 85, which can also make the talent One with Nature more powerful as well. The net effect of the change to Aspect of the Hawk should result in a buff to Survival and Beast Mastery in PvE and (in combination with the Aimed Shot nerf) a slight reduction to PvE Marksmanship dps. The changes can also make Aimed Shot less attractive once a target drops below 80% health and Careful Aim no longer applies.
