I play both (Ele main and Hunter).Ele Shaman is just Palpatine on Steroids. Hunter requires you to think a little when using your powers, but is still easy.
Achieving a perfect run of Torghast is simple at worst, that's not the issue.The power gap between Anima Powers for specs or classes is just beyond insane, differences amounting up to a difference of over 200k in DPS.In general that's no big deal given you benefit from it too in a group setting, but why even do something when even your Healer sports 80k DPS and you have no powers and sit at your out of Torghast DPS of 10-20k while others excel even over 300k DPS.And your Torghast run then takes considerably less time.
What even is this discussion in here? Who in their right mind gives a damn about anima power balance in Choregast? Hunters have much bigger problems like survivability in raids. Their damage is not the greatest but they have their niches. I don't need to top damage in dungeons or raids to feel accomplishment. But surviving stuff? That's just on another level of stupid. Basically any other class can make some mistakes, stand in aoe etc. and they will be alive and hunters will die when the boss just farts in their direction (feeling sorry for hunter bros who went Kyrian and don't have Soulshape/Podtender anymore). Even Limit or Echo had a meme about Guardian and his purging protocol and put something along of "1: survival of the fittest, 2: barrier, 3: combat ress" in their spreadsheet. Turtle is the worst "immunity" out of all immunities in the game, SotF is 20% for 6 seconds with a 3 min cd when for example Barkskin is also 20%, but for 8 seconds on a 1 min cd.
So half the hunters have only damage abilities on the bar.
As a BM Hunter it's so hard to do torghast, not because we don't know how to play the class but because our powers don't really "empower" us that much. It's either an upgrade for the hunter itself and not the pet. Or just the pet and not the hunter. In higher layers mobs hit like a truck and out pets have no defensives. You either get super lucky with an epic damge reduction anima power or your pet get's one tapped. :( They are designed to just buff other people, your pet is still trash with those buffs... also the damage increases are nothing.I play elemental shaman too, they're BUSTED AS F. Hunters are like 1% of the power they get. So unfair lmao
I do wonder what the item level of the hunters who say Torghast is easy to get a 5 star solo is.
