There was a hotfix on September 23rd that gave us a couple of buffs.
- Chimera Shot damage has been increased by 50%.
- Explosive Shot damage has been increased by 10%.
It’s nice to see Chimera shot get a boost. It was something that a lot of people questioned during Patch 5.4 testing. Will it be enough to get folks interested in playing that spec? I doubt it, but it’s still early in the expansion.
The are few things working against MM right now. One it doesn’t do as much theoretical damage as the other two specs. Two, it doesn’t offer anything unique over BM and SV. Three most Hunters have been avoiding it this whole expansion, so there’s no real incentive to learn it now.
The buff to SV is nice, and that’s all there really is to say about it.
