    Per MMO Champion:
    • Survival Hunter: Direct damage dealt by most Survival Hunter abilities is now increased by 12%, up from 7%. Damage over time effects remain increased by 7% only (possibly an oversight).
    This is listed under patch 7.1.5 changes so this hasn't hit live yet, but I'm really wondering just how terrible survival hunters are at max level for them to be continuously buffed. If they're really bad, then I suspect Blizzard will stop at nothing to save them since they reworked the entire spec.

    Doesn't bode well for this bracket, whatever's left of it.

    See, one thing blizz doesn't get is that increasing all damage dealt doesn't actually make the class better in any way other than "skill" required to kill someone :/

    It would be super easy to buff maxlevel hunters while nerfing lowlevel hunters using the tool that they gave themselves: pvp stat templates.
    You should try spam posting about this issue on the official US wow forums if you really want it fixed. Also consider having multiple people tweet at warcractdevs and create in-game tickets on the issue.

    All these things have been proven to work in the past, even for twink related issues.

    Yes, blizz has the stat templates. but why do more work when you can do less work? Because duck lowbie bgs, according to blizzard. /sigh this bracket is possibly the worst ive seen it in years.

    The only thing that seems to motivate them is excessive amounts of threads/tweets/tickets. You're right that they will likely never change anything twink related if you don't try to make them.

    If you play SV perfectly and only manage to barely kill someone I think you need soms damage buffs. I don't think a lacerate should kill someone, but I think soms buffs are needed to the spec @ endgame.
