I'm pretty sure that Mongoose bite will not require you to do different attacks in between, I'm pretty sure it was just saying that using it does not extend the duration of your previous stacks, like it is in live

ok so the only good I see from this atm good current co9ntent solo spec kinda like blood dks
Rodney Horsley on 11. Apr. 2018.
Everyone bashing it yet I’m dying to play it. It looks so amazing.
ZzMR_STRETCHzZ on 11. Apr. 2018.
not ganna lie the mix between ranged and melee seems dumb looks exactly the same should just make it all melee unless they want it like outlaw a bit where its got a gun or slingshot effect

Heel seems to have completely fundamentally misunderstood Survival as a spec and seems to believe it's actually a hybrid where staying at range is a legitimate option. Thought the lad was way smarter than that

Blizz just will not stop fucking over specs. Seriously, look back on the player's fondest memories and base it on that. They keep trying to innovate every expansion and it's not working

Well I for one am liking survival in alpha, I like to switch from BM to survival (depending on my mood) in legion now, because I enjoy both melee and range play styles. Having it rolled into one spec, jumping in and out, its really fun. They also slowed down a few classes and specs, which just adds to survival being even more fun to me. To be all honest this is what BM should had been and they kept survival a dot spec.
savangray on 10. Apr. 2018.
Looks interesting but not sure how it will play out. I always thought survival should be a tanking spec (kind of in the name really) where you manually juggle between you and your pet tanking and whichever is not tanking gets healed based on the damage dealt by the one tanking. Sounds weird but I thought it would be an interesting way to tank.

Reminds me of Red Mage in FFXIV.

Over Legion a lot of players have voiced their disliking of this new Survival spec, I won’t say it’s a majority of any community but I’m sure it’s a lot. Hell if Outlaw Rogues are up there for one of the least played specs I wouldn’t be surprised if SV was too. That being said, when they announced it I embraced it and was quick to embrace it. I’ve always been a melee main, with my hunter almost always being my go to alt. Personally, seeing these changes feels frustrating. On the one hand, if this is as a new spec I’d be all for it, hell when Demon Hunters came out I played exclusively with mobility as resource builders, but instead of doubling down on this proposed melee spec the changes go out of the way to make you feel like you should be actively looking for chances to jump to range. Furthermore it’s odd to see this from the dev team when they’re doubling down on the class fantasy of Outlaw Rogues. I think this weird dichotomy is the main reason I’ve been leaning so heavily toward o

Guess they finally figured out that no one wants to make a hunter to melee. Might have been a more popular option for people already playing hunters if they didn't pigeon hole you into one spec in legion.

Hi I just saw your video with Hayven RIP ;(
kooken58 on 8. Apr. 2018.
Honestly Blizz, scrap your current class design team and hire someone with a fresh set of eyes. Your class design people have gotten lazy and seem to lack the understanding of what is fun to play.
Youtoob celery jason genova on 8. Apr. 2018.
live survival is fun but over bloated. BFA legion is boring and under bloated. blizz, pls meet us in the middle somewhere...
Chezwick Cheese on 8. Apr. 2018.
Some decent changes but I think it will take another expansion to really lock down the theme and mechanics of the spec. The ability to jump in and out of melee is cool but the ranged abilities seem kinda weak and uninspiring. With gear that could change though but overall survival definitely looks fun to level.
Jade Browning on 8. Apr. 2018.
It's the opposite of BM in terms of playstyle; BM concentrates on kiting while having the pet tank, allows you to use LoS out of sight and play ranged. Surv now seems as if teaching you about being in melee range (letting the tank get aggro), but also if you were to use LoS and call the pet, the enemies would come to you. As Hunters are an introductory class it's smart to introduce people to that play style [melee] in this manner, subtly teaching about melee/tank LoS.
Philip Blake on 8. Apr. 2018.
Honestly looks like it needs a whole lot of work, but cool. As a side note, I'd like to see hand-crossbows as a glyph option for Outlaw rogues, as much as I like pistols. Variety is nice.
Matthew Elwood on 8. Apr. 2018.
Terms of engagement will at the very least be the best choice for leveling and or questing content. There really is no competition there. The current artifact talent alone makes me prefer questing in legion as survival over the other 2. So fast
Dwingaa on 8. Apr. 2018.
Well done, this is a great look at the survival hunter, it has come a long way since the troll dungeon days
The Fox Box on 8. Apr. 2018.
DYNAMIC SURVIVAL......HUNTARD! Sometimes you live....sometimes you dont.
Rippiripper on 8. Apr. 2018.
I think survival hunters are going to be great because of their range flexibility. You'll be able to avoid melee unfriendly mechanics by using Aspect of the eagle and staying back with the ranged dps, no uptime lost on the bosses. Plus, as far as utility goes, it's second only to rogues in the melee department. Hunter is shaping up to be a great class overall!
zach on 8. Apr. 2018.
blizz when people say they want the old ranged SV back, this is not what they meant. i do not understand why they didn't just add the old one back as a 4th spec and saved their time. dinky little crossbow sting and a fire bomb does not = old survival. plus it is still forced into melee to dump focus no thanks.
Yuria on 8. Apr. 2018.
but can you dual wield axes?
sean sullivan on 8. Apr. 2018.
that is a shit idea
Steve Zimmerman on 8. Apr. 2018.
Reminds me way to much of a Outlaw rogue playstyle
Violet Bliss on 8. Apr. 2018.
I see a lot of doom and gloom in the comments. The spec retains its feel like in Legion, it is just given more direction (I am not sure why it's percieved as less) as a trapper and outdoorsperson that has a variety of tools to fight and get by with, along with the help of their loyal companion. The spec is melee, but many skills have a range, putting it along specs such as Unholy and Enhancement that has been like this for a long time. It works quite well and has a nice "skirmisher" feel which suits the hunter class very well if it is going to melee. The talent tree is very powerful in choosing the directionyou want to focus - the trapper talents are more interesting now than in Legion, and you can spec Flanking strike over KC, etc.

Congrats on becoming a joke on hunter discord!
jessica vesper on 8. Apr. 2018. HeelvsBabyface please watch this till end sooooooooooooo funny and yes its a unboxing of BFA.
Nathorus on 8. Apr. 2018.
lol they might as well remove the entire spec at this point.
Nagoto on 8. Apr. 2018. If you have any questions about the spec - or want real opinions on BFA Survival PLEASE feel free to join us in the Hunter class discord. We have a channel dedicated just to BFA Survival discussion with some of the best SV hunters in the world.
SirC0wd0g on 8. Apr. 2018.
Sounds good on paper. But watching the videos it seems kind of weak and not-powerful. Trash mobs in the open world shouldn't take that long to kill.
Gubstep on 7. Apr. 2018.
Well then, Harpoon looks like it'll be a blast in battlegrounds. Especially with the hybrid of ranged/melee now. Great video as always. :)
Mochachocakon on 7. Apr. 2018.
There's so many neat talent builds you can make with that tree. If you want to Swifty someone, you pop coordinated assault and Bloodlust, Chakram, Harpoon, Flanking Stike, then just pummel them with Raptor strikes and KK's. You get a solid cleave build with Butchery and the extra KK, you get great sustained two target cleave with the two Poison talents. Omg, I'm in love.
Giancarlo Castellanos on 7. Apr. 2018.
Can’t help but lmao reading the hate on this spec. People complain it’s too much melee on live, then they complain it’s too little melee in alpha, then they complain the rotation is clunky on live, now it’s too simple on alpha. Survival is meant to be about a versatile play style. With talents, you’re given the choice of melee centered combat or increasing your ranged capabilities with benefits to both choices. What in the flying fuck is the problem??? Personally I love what they’ve done with the spec and I’ve switched between maining a hunter and shaman since vanilla. Feels a lot less restricted (i.e. damage not centered around rng of mongoose stacks), mobility is amazing, and has many different sources that keep the gameplay dynamic. Big fan. Hope to see more of this content from you

Song at 19:00 please?
Fretty Gaming on 7. Apr. 2018.
Eww. Survival still sucks even on the Alpha. Ewwww!!
Mr. Frips on 7. Apr. 2018.
BFA looks shit.
Bryan Rolston on 7. Apr. 2018.
I'm not a fan of it myself. I liked the idea of a melee spec for hunters, I know it needed some work because the rotation is a bit clunky and all over the place in legion but going back to more of a range style play style just isn't for me. Also I can't say enough how much I absolutely HATE the argument of "survival hunters forgot how to use bow/guns in legion" ...that's like saying outlaw rogues forgot how to use daggers, it's just plain stupid.
Elric Engquist on 7. Apr. 2018.
Honestly i wish they had more synergy between the melee, and ranged combat aspects of combat, but also it would be interesting if they brought back more of the traps we had an tie them into the spec as part of the method of focus regen. What I mean is either a talent, or just base-line for the spec make it that while you have a target under the effect of a trap you gain a flat regen of focus, or a percentage boost to your focus regen. I could also see some kind of synergy between harpoon an disengage as they seem to want to make survival more of a hybrid melee/ranged spec that actually wants to split their time, unless they specifically specc more for melee or ranged, so making some talent that actually rewards you for using it in that manner to get yourself in an out of mele or ranged would fit nicely.
ilovepancake on 7. Apr. 2018.
so we found the broken class in pvp for the next expansion :D
saint mythi on 7. Apr. 2018.
Who cares huntard needs to die off way to many cas the class is a joke.
Electric on 7. Apr. 2018.
Personally I kinda liked Legion SV, it was fast and could do some serious damage if you knew what you were doing. I do understand why they needed a change tho. The Legion SV was built around having the artifact ability. If we kept the Legion SV we wouldnt have an ability to synergize with the six stacks of mongoose bite for big damage. I do think this was a well needed change for the spec with the absence of the artifacts.
thecanadianwill on 7. Apr. 2018.
why do all you idiots say its new? its hardly different from before and I and many other just so happened to like the current survival very much!
Is mayonnaise an instrument? on 7. Apr. 2018.
Interesting! I actually might try this in BFA
desrt33 on 7. Apr. 2018.
Sounds clunky, similar to the way hunters used to be. This is a step backwards IMO. What is blizzards obsession with melee? The class no one wants to bring to raids.
Riley Smith on 7. Apr. 2018.
Gotta work on those sound levels bro. When the music kicks in it just about blew my speakers. 0_0
Macaque on 7. Apr. 2018.
So it's kinda like red mage from ffxiv?
Ansgar Odinson on 7. Apr. 2018.
I hate it... I was hoping that as it came along I would hate it less but the more they develop this hybrid thing the more I hate it. I MUCH prefer legion survival. This thing seems all over the place and just plain awful. There is no consistent theme, fantasy or feel and instead it just feels like a bunch of mismatched abilities bolted together. I see my survival hunter will be getting zero play time in the next xpac.
BlinkingEspurr on 7. Apr. 2018.
Why isnt SURVIVAL a tank if they were going for the melee? I think it would be cool to add some actual defensives and shit to a class that is about, you know, survival.
Mathew Chilton on 7. Apr. 2018.
How are people not noticing it's literally bm with melee cobra shot. He'll they didn't even change the name of kill command, but at least they renamed bestial wrath. Still looks the same though. Also it has literally 1 melee ability aside from your snare. That's not really a very good mix.
