We got a blue, cool... still not fixed.
And don't nerf the CD on traps, seriously.
^ We need improved traps BACK NOW!!! ^
I got my behind onto the PTR because I was so concerned over what they're doing to SV, and I wasn't wrong to do so.
Aside from Waylay not functioning properly AT ALL (traps do not need arm time, only need to be out of combat. Probably not intended, but concerning) it's probably the most CLUNKY thing I've ever seen. It's not fun, it's not interesting, and it's straight up entirely frustrating. Especially to the upcoming nerf on trap CDs, assuming because of this horrible, stupid design choice. Who's going to move a boss in a raid just for my extra damage? Trying to anticipate when bosses move? Well guess what, some bosses don't even move. There's wasted DPS, especially since the trap CD nerf.. no buff to compensate.
Please, just REMOVE Waylay and buff traps, keep our CDs low to keep traps feeling special... you don't need this horrid mish-mash amalgamation of an idea to keep it feeling special. It felt as if we already were the trap masters, as we had extra traps & trap talents (by the way, why in the hell is Improved Traps being removed? That's an even bigger damage nerf.) this isn't necessary.
It's not interesting, it's not fun, and it's a damage nerf, especially in raids. Where we already get kicked and crapped on enough for our spec.
Please, please, please remove Waylay and keep SV as is. It's ENTIRELY useless.
SURVIVALISTS DO NOT WANT WAYLAY!!

Right when I accept the Survival masterrace, they obliterate it in the next patch.
Not pleased to say the least.
11/23/2016 10:51 PMPosted by Yoodle10000000000000% Agree..
It's just infinitely lazy design, and the team responsible for survival hunters lore can only be creatively bankrupt.
11/24/2016 02:19 AMPosted by MusaharWaylay looks awful. The new trap direction looks awful. Not one aspect of it seems fun or engaging. Class fantasy is fine, I love the new survival hunter. Favorite spec by a mile.
11/24/2016 02:05 PMPosted by MomoringWaylay is just more proof that the concept of a master trapper being melee is just clueless. It sounds like a mechanic designed to be used at range. Placing traps between you and a target and then pulling from a distance after they empower makes much more sense than harpooning yourself and then backpedaling.
11/24/2016 01:06 PMPosted by ZonjoBlizzard, please just take waylay, throw it in the trash can where it belongs. It's kind of cool idea but not practical, not fun, and please don't try to make it work by getting rid of the out of combat portion of it, NO ONE WANTS IT.
11/24/2016 04:36 PMPosted by Angaratoplease for the love of !@#$ get rid of %^-*ing waylay and change back survivals trap cd. instead of this horrible !@#$ give use healing shell for our damn turtle shell. survival is the only spec that doesnt get healed during turtle. this isnt an absurd request blizzard cmon now.
waylay is horrible for all the reasons mentioned in this thread. i much rather have wild protector or perhaps a stun on fury of the eagle to make it almost as useful as a monk's baseline ability with 1/3rd the cooldown as ours.
11/24/2016 06:29 PMPosted by OnamahDo blues read the PTR forum? This needs to be heard, our spec doesn't need to be worse than it already is, it actually can't get worse. From a design standpoint, this change doesn't even function, so just save your time and get rid of it. Make master trapper baseline and revamp our level 100 talents.
Do not implement waylay on live servers. Don't do it. Not a single player wants this.
11/24/2016 08:04 PMPosted by Angaratoplease listen to your community blizzard. i think its the first time in recorded history that both pve and pvp players agree on something.
message loud and clear. we dont want waylay, it is absolute garbage in both pve and pvp and most of all, its just not fun to use. its clunky, awkward, slow paced and has too many factors for failure.
11/25/2016 06:49 AMPosted by RélikWaylay is a "good on paper", but useless in application. I appreciate the effort in trying to come up with something, but please do not do this. It's OK if we're not the only trap kids. Just please fix our other issues.
11/25/2016 07:18 AMPosted by NessfalcoWaylay is absolutely useless. Just make expert trapper and/or improved traps baseline and replace those talents. That will more than take care of making survival traps feel unique.
I'D PUT MORE QUOTES HERE, BUT I RAN OUT OF ROOM. WE DON'T WANT IT, GET RID OF IT!!
