After the Big Balance Beta has ended, Huntsman had some nice changes passed around onto him, but I feel like they didn’t really affect his main problems after all.
Right now, Huntsman is a career with an incredibly high skill floor which also tries to fill an oversaturated niche of a ranged damage dealer (filled by Bounty Hunter, Waystalker, and Pyromancer).
It can shine in the hands of masters, but for a big part of the playerbase, he is a chair with a spiky seat.
I was thinking…
Would it be a good idea to bring back the “Sure Shot” as a talent? Make it “save” headshots up to 3 stacks and generate them in some way with melee.
This way, a newbie would have easier time taking advantage of Huntsman’s innate “headshot-focused” nature, while veteran players could use it as a “panic talent” for situations where aiming is not an option.
Yes, it has a chance of becoming a “crutch-talent”, so it should probably be put on the same row as the “+50% Headshot damage” talent (lvl10), to make them compete with each other.
What do you think, people, should Sure Shot be brought back as a talent?
