Legion Beta: Survival Hunter Talents and Abilities

As the datamining for the current Legion build 20740 is for the most part complete, we have a great picture of hunter talents and spells.  Usual disclaimer, all of this is in the very very very early stages of development and may not exist in the game when it goes live, or may not even exist now, as a couple different devs have mentioned some of these ideas have already been scrapped.  That doesn't mean they aren't fun to look at / think about, though.

Also, I'd like to give a huge thanks to the folks at wowhead.com and mmo-champion.com for all their work datamining over the weekend.

Survival Talents:

Tier 15:

  • Animal Instincts -- When you attack with Flanking Strike, you gain the instincts of your pet, providing you with a random combat enhancement.

  • Way of the Mok'Nathal -- Attacking with Raptor Strike grants you a stack of Mok'Nathal Tactics, increasing your attack power by 5% for 8 seconds. Stacks 5 times.
    Delirium's note:  OMG we get to be REXXAR!!!!!!  Just like MM has the sylvanas talents, it looks like SV is getting Rexxar talents, with this, and Throwing Axes to make up for not dual wielding axes.

  • Posthaste -- Disengage also frees you from all movement impairing effects and increases your movement speed by 60% for 8 seconds.

PvP Talent Tree:

In Legion, all specs will have a separate PvP-specific Talent Tree. Each Talent is unlockable with various PvP achievements.  Remember, you'll unlock these by columns based on Honor Levels, not by tier; so you can quickly get the first talent from each tier, but won't have any choices until you start unlocking the second column, and then the third.  In this case, Master's Call is the final talent unlocked, which is just weird, as it's been a baseline talent for so long.

Column 1 Talents:

  • Gladiator's Medallion - Honor Level 1 - Removes all movement impairing effects and all effects which cause loss of control of your character
  • Train of Thought - Honor Level 2 - Damage increased by 15%. Being attacked will cancel this effect for 8 seconds.
  • Dragonscale Armor - Honor Level 4 - Magical periodic damage effects deal 20% less damage to you.
  • Viper Sting - Honor Level 6 - Your Raptor Strike stings the target, reducing their healing done by 30% for 12 seconds. Viper Sting is removed if the target casts a non-instant cast healing spell.
  • Master of the Wilds - Honor Level 8 - Dealing damage with Mongoose Bite reduces the remaining cooldown of your traps by 3 seconds.
  • Sticky Tar - Honor Level 10 - Unknown

Column 2 Talents

  • Adaptation - Honor Level 13 - All full loss of control effects with a duration of 5 seconds or longer will be removed shortly after being applied.  This effect has a 1.5 minute ICD.
  • Mind Quickness - Honor Level 16 - Increases haste by 15%.
  • Catlike Reflexes - Honor level 19 - Critical Melee strikes grant you 30% dodge for 4 seconds.
  • Scorpid Sting - Honor Level 22- Your Raptor Strike stings the target, reducing their physical Critical Strike Chance by 50% for 6 seconds.
  • Bait and Switch - Honor Level 25 - Harpoon causes your next disengage used within 6 seconds to not incur a cooldown.
  • Diamond Ice - Honor Level 28 - Victims of Freezing Trap can no longer be damaged or healed. Feezing Trap is now undispellable, but has a 6 sec duration.

Column 3 Talents

  • Relentless - Honor Level 31 - Duration of incoming CC effects reduced by 25%.
  • Initiation - Honor Level 34 - Critical chance increased by 30% on targets at or above 80% health.
  • Survival Tactics - Honor Level 37 - Feign Death removes all harmful magical effects, and reduces damage taken by 100% for 1.5 seconds.  Delirium's Note: Despite being a ridiculously cool talent, this is unfortunately another tool that means hunters are gonna get the boring job in RBGs...
  • Spider Sting - Honor Level 40 - Stings the target with potent spider venom, causing their next offensive spell cast to silence the target for 5 seconds.
  • Hunting Pack - Honor Level 43 - Aspect of the Cheetah also causes all allies within 15 yards to gain 90% movement speed for 3 seconds.
