So I am not much of a poster on the forums, but I would like to know how other hunters think the Trapper of Foes traitline should be changed of if it should even be changed. While other classes have the ability to utilize other trait lines and still be a viable part of a fellowship or raid, the Trapper of Foes traitline is not very practicable.
I personally would like to see it turned into a traitline revolving around either debuffs or "Camouflage." I would prefer a way to become a stealthy hunter, striking from the forest or underbrush. In history, archers have traditionally been used to overwhelm the enemy with arrows or to strike at them with dexterity and surprise. Even in Tolkien's lore archers have used stealth and speed to strike down their enemies or prey.
They could rename the traitline, "The Silent Predator" or something to that nature. Maiming the enemy from the shadows seems a viable way to contribute to the fellowship especially if the debuffs would perform the "maiming part." Hunters seem to have the tendency to draw a large amount of threat from mobs and other enemies, so the line could also help to decrease the threat, especially if the "Book of the Whisperdraw" is used.
I know of course, that there would need to be some setbacks, so perhaps less DPS than the other traitlines with a main focus on debuffing the opponent.
So if anyone has any ideas for the improvement of this traitline, please post! This Hunter wants to know the ideas of other more worthy contributors to this thread.
