  1. I think you should add a part to the cons. We have very hard time getting out of melee range as rogues have their Crippling Poison and
    warriors have their hamstring.

  2. That is not so much a con as it is a challenge. You must try to avoid these abilities as much as possible and react correctly if you become affected, e.g. wing clip in return, scatter shot or even just place a freezing trap.

  3. Shoulnd’t it be ‘vulnerable’ instead of ‘venerable’ ?

  4. hunter is not vulnerable if pet dies. there’s still the hunter. the hunter can kite.
