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.
