It looks like people are seeing some interesting data on crit rating and serpent sting. If you have the 2t9 bonus that lets your serpent stings crit, apparently a mechanic that locks have known about for a while applies to us, as well. It looks like your serpent sting crit chance at the time of application gets refreshed (along with your %damage buffs like tricks of the trade and the 2t10 bonus) when you refresh your sting with chimera shot.
Does this mean that marks hunters should be popping a wild magic potion when they get trinket procs that increase their crit? I’d guess. If I could code, would I code an addon that shows us a live crit% somewhere so we could maximize our sting damage? You bet. Will I continue to ask myself rhetorical questions for the purpose of informing readers? Nope.
