Top 100 Arena Stats: S5 Week 3

For 2v2, 3v3 and 5v5 Week 3 Arena Stats, along with other misc. stats, visit WoW Reports.

3.0.8 looks to go live today or next tuesday.  I'm hoping today, as Survival is fun to play, even without burst.  With burst its going to be awesome.  Pew pew Explosive Shot.

What changes are made in 3.0.8 to give survival hunters more burst? So far I havent found any notes describing that?

Explosive Shot on the PTR is hitting x2 as hard as Live. So instead of critting for 1.5k or so a tick, it can crit for 3k a tick. GC has said that ES will be nerfed slightly as Survival is leading the BM and MM tree in dps on the PTR. So it matters how slightly that nerf is really, but Survival with the new Explosive Shot come 3.0.8 is going to be much more bursty.

I can see on http://www.mmo-champion.com/index.php?topic=33040.0 - that 3.1 has survival as highest with explosive shot being main reason - but you reckon that is 3.0.8? Havent done any PTR testing myself, tho. Just respecced marksman last night (from BM) and liked it much - nice having yourself do more dmg than your pet.

The ES change is in 3.0.8. The changes to our ammo and scaling are supposedly in 3.1.

Ok, sounds interesting - maybe survival will be very interesting to try out - what spec have you tested, and what shot rotation do survivals tend to use?

I think I will just make a small post on an updated Survival spec and the Survival rotation.
