    ...for I have sinned. I have given into the temptation and dealt with Demon (Hunters). I could not resist the siren song of Legend and the promise of a free Classic Legendary, so I did the unspeakable and steamrolled from Diamond 5 to Legend with only 20 wins.

    Appropriately I was rewarded with King Mukla like the disgusting Ape I am. BUt alas, I am free from the pressure of ever having to reach Legend again and can now focus on what is truly important in life....pretending like I actually know how to build decks and then claim I found a new way to game the meta.

     

     

    So anyways, how's your climb going? I got really lucky I guess, because I only ran into a single Galakrond Warlock and only two Priests (one of which I even beat....barely). Tempo DH is pretty disgusting and I honestly can't see the staying this way forever. At some point Battlefiend will have to be nerfed, it's ridiculous how hard that thing takes games from turn 1. It's like Pirate Warrior all over again.

    I tried having fun once.

    Leave my favorite class alone. Yes he goes face, yes he doesn't give a shit about your taunts. That's what that class is all about.

    That shouldn't imply the class should easily get away with it and steamroll the meta.

    I think a couple more nerfs are on their way, just mild ones (possibly on cards that make it too comfortable for a Tempo deck to overcome a Control one), and I think you can stay assured they won't break the back of the new class.

    With exception of a few games to feel up the decks, been avoiding tempo and OTK dhunters like the plague. Just dont like climbing ladder with decks like this. It feels dirty, as you have experienced evidently. If I have to play meta decks at all, I'd like to make some changes into them so I can feel like I've contributed to the deck's power to some degree.

    Of course, with principles like this comes poor rank climbing. Been stuck around rank 7 diamond for some time, trying desperately making decks like zixor combo hunter work. I might move on to try ranking up with paladin or shaman next. Wonder what my rank would be by the end of the month had it not been for rank floors.

    Without a doubt tempo dhunters is going to dominate until next expansion or until some nerfs are set. Its greatest gift to all of hearthstone is to completely ensure that other tempo decks cant exist, and making res priest a dominant and popular deck. Truly evil indeed.

    I daresay the whole class should be fine with:

    1. Skull of Gul'dan discounts cards by (2) (Outcast would still be 'draw 3 for free', possibly still too good).
    2. Priestess of Fury: deals damage at the START of your turn. OR deals damage to board only (this should keep in check the Tempo builds against Control, still good for Tempo against Aggro)
    3. Kael'thas Sunstrider costs (8) (this should keep in check ALL Combo lists, not just DH, against Tempo)

    and he also heals better than Warlock with more burst than Hunter and better card draw then Rogue. If it wasn't for the fact that he can't kill big minions early on he'd have no weaknesses whatsoever

    At this moment I have no certain desire to climb the ladder but if I do, I will probably head down the same path as OP. I have to craft both the DH legendaries though.

    At least I can tell you that they're absolutely a safe investment. Metamorphosis probably won't be nerfed and will remain essential as a finisher. Kayn is also necessary and will probably be used even if he ends up being nerfed.

    Funnily enough King Mukla is actually a decent card in tempo demon hunter.

    How many of those games that you played were mirror matches, though?

    Same story. It took me 21 wins though.

    My reward was Xavius, pretty fitting aswell :)

    I realy enjoy the outcast mechanic. It‘s a shame that it feels so dirty winning with DH..

    Winner winner chicken dinner

    surprisingly not a lot. I remember a combo DH that I barely beat by one turn, two unrefined Tempo ones that didn't really seem to know what they were doing (poor mana usage and such) and two more that actually beat me by having a stronger curve.

    DH is a lot less common than you'd think. I ran into a lot more Druids (all of which I beat, because Kayn doesn't give a fuck whether you have a full board of 6/6 taunts). Maybe my MMR was that low that I kept getting matched up against weaker players? Or maybe my MMR was high enough that I kept being matched agaisnt low Legend players who are just memeing around. Overall the new ranking system seems less....competitive? Since you're not playing against people of the same rank there's no telling if your opponent isn't just fooling around on ranked floors, which in turn makes climbing a bit easier.

    Outcast is actually one of the coolest mechanics in the game. It rewards you so much for playing smart and planning ahead. It's just a shame that the overall card quality is so high that it barely even matters if you play correctly or not. Half of my games I ended up with multiple lethal outs regardless of what the opponent did. However, there's still some obvious weaknesses in the class that could probably balance them out if it was more...enforced.

    Congratulations dude! I received Nat Pagle as my reward, so I’d gladly trade you for the big monkey.

    I’ve been dabbling in Demon Hunter a bit myself, after resisting it for quite awhile. It’s dirty, but feels good, like dunking a basketball on a child.

    the draw ability is just nuts. priestess of fury is not even included in the most aggro versions. not even the anteon or whatever its its name. now we know why they HOF leeroy.

    But he has the greatest weakness of all the classes, lack of card generation! ;)

    ...just so we are clear, that was sarcasm.

    the fact that card generation is listed as their weakness proves that the devs think RNG is an actual asset to a class.

    Are you me? I hit Legend (for the first time!) with Demon Hunter too, and also got King Mukla as my legendary.

     

    Congrats at any rate! Now you can finally play the decks you want for the rest of the month.
