The New Misdirection Needs a Little Old Direction
I like the new way that Misdirection (MD) works. I appreciate the four second timer after I fire my first shot, but there is a visual problem. Blizzard took away the swirly mark that goes over the head of the person you cast MD on. Instead you just throw your hands up in the air. Then after the four seconds are up the swirly mark takes place over you. It left me standing there as one confused and terrified hunter. I immediately used Feign Death.
Changing the mechanics of the spell was awesome. Changing the visual of the spell was stupid. Doing so makes me think twice about using it. Did I cast it on the tank? Did I cast on the healer by mistake? I should be able to be sure that MD is doing what it is supposed to do, and is cast on the person it is supposed to be cast on. Yes, I could just macro it. That would make everything here moot. However, a lot of things in play are visual. We get a lot of visual cues as to when something is about to happen or something has happened. MD is no different.
I want to buy MD with new mechanics, but old visual cue please.
