Late the other night, I went in and did the unthinkable. I nuked my secondary (Marksman) talents. It was late and I had actually meant to nuke my primary (Survival) talents. So following that mistake I went in and decided to make Marksman my "primary" talent choice. That was neat. After doing that I [thankfully] realized I had to re-glyph out of SV and into MM glyphs. But why did I start all this?
I decided to almost drop Survival. I made my secondary talents into a PvP spec. It's focused around my normal Marksman talents and abilities. I also keep all the same types of keys, but the macros under then are a little different. I pulled a little out of the stand-and-shoot type stuff and more into mobility. A little bit less DPS and a little more bells and whistles. And a silly surprise.
Okay, I like PVP. I've never had a PVP talent spec before. This was kinda fun. And the talents are fun. And I can and do fire off three Arcane Shots in a row with my silly surprise. But seriously, this is not why I started all this.
I started all this because of gear. I got one upgrade and it made me shift at least five pieces of gear around for my primary Marksman DPS set. If/when I get the 5th Sanctified piece, I'll trade in my 264 ArmPen shoulders for it, trade out my Sanctified pants for the ArmPen pants and call it a day. Anyway, the main reason I got rid of Survival is that I re-gemmed all my gear to ArmPen. Previously, I had half a set of ArmPen-Marksman-only gear and a full set of Agility-Survival gear. Well, I said "fuck it" and re-gemmed half of the Survival gear's Agility with ArmPen. That left Survival with a DPS loss (on top of it being behind) and we can't have that now can we?
I have twenty-two Armor Pen gems in my gear. Hell, I even swapped out Zod's with the bone bow so I could slap in a gem and pick up a tiny hit. I should be glowing red.
PS: 0/53/18 is a nutty PvP spec. I do love to trap dance though. And I never had Entrapment before!
PPS: I previous dragged around my previous Marksman set, my Marksman-sting-rolling set (T9x2), my Survival set, my PvP set, my Pet Tanking threat set, and my Pet Tanking stamina set. I even toted around some of my toys and costumes. I only left my frost-resist set from the Naxx days in my vault. This talent change means I can vault the sting set and survival set. While they weren't complete standalone sets, it's a fair amount that I can stop needing to consider. Reducing complexity is very very nice.
