Following must be said to a raiding talent build:
since patch 1.11 the winter's chill talent in the frost tree has become very usefull. With all points in it u get a 100% chance to apply the winter's chill debuff which increases ur chance to crit with frostspells on the debuffed target for 2% per debuff. It stacks up to 5 times (so a max of 10% higher critchance) and lasts for 15 seconds on the target.
Playing in raids I suggest to find a place for Frostbolt Rank 1 in ur Hotbar for applying debuffs as soon as the Maintank has engaged the target. U do like no damage with FB Rank1 but u can already debuff the target and save up a spot under the first debuff slots where it is not as likely wiped out by cursing locks and othe debuffs than on one of the last slots.
Update to TBC
After TBC is released, I think all the talent pages should be cleared of 51 point builds and replaced with 61 point builds. 51 point builds are optimized for using exactly 51 points, and can be quite different from optimized 61 point builds. Most people like to build their character with the end in mind, so 61 points should be the new standard for talent build additions. Anyone agree/disagree? Paul6743 13:29, 1 January 2007 (EST)
As with the main Hunter Builds page, I think the neutrality of the Hunter summary on this page must be called into question. For example, the statement that, "at endgame instances and raids, Beast Mastery hunters are known to be less useful" may or may not have been true in the pre-TBC era; but following the release of TBC and subsequent patches this statement would be disputed by many raiding hunters.

I think it would be really nice if people could make the 2 links for each spec so people could choose what page to go. I particularly enjoy wowhead's one more than the official one. Could that be made to all Talent Builds page?
Are the respec values right? I thought it was 1/5/10/20/30/40/50, and not incremented in 5 to 5. Also, the monthly discounts are of 10g. Can someone confirm that? Gi2k15 (talk) 16:30, September 13, 2009 (UTC)
