I wanted to call two GC threads to your attention this morning. The first isn’t real big but I know a bunch of people have been asking about the effect of the ammunition changes on Steady Shot.
Q u o t e:
Does this mean that steady shot is no longer effected by the haste bonus?
No. We just wanted to remove the quiver without losing its haste bonus. Except for inventory changes, you should not notice a difference.
The second thread is all-together longer and more amusing.
Basically someone named Driizzt posted on the Damage Dealing forum that Thunderstomp was being removed from gorillas … but he missed the bit where all Tenacity pets get Thunderstomp. Ghostcrawler responded (many, many times) and hilarity ensued.
There’s some useful stuff in the thread about the cooldown on Thunderstomp Pummel (which will be increased, and will probably end up at a bit less than a minute) and how worms can stomp (setae), as well as some nice info on the change to Furious Howl:
The original LK idea was to make it a substitute for Battle Shout / Blessing of Might. We took a similar tact with several of the pets being able to bring great buffs if you were missing them.
Unfortuntely, those buffs tend to be exceedingly common and wolves are such an iconic WoW creature that it felt unfortunate for them to be sidelined.
The new ability *stacks* with those buffs. It only affects the hunter and her wolf. We changed the cooldown and duration because we thought it was more interesting to try and time your cooldowns (like burn Rapid Shot during Howl) rather than just have the bonus up 100% of the time.
Wolves should be good now. We hope.
I could wish that the information was a bit easier to find (and I strongly suspect that I missed important bits but I’m sure you’ll let me know what they were) but I have to say that I really love the tone of the post.
Then again, I’ve been awake for the past 20 hours and I’m beginning to get a little punchy …
 Ack! My apologies! I meant to type Pummel above when talking about cooldown changes and instead I typed Thunderstomp. I knew I shouldn’t be posting exhausted!
Sorry about that …
