Ideas for Hunters

hey guys i was just being bored thinking of random things that could make hunters more fun
so i have 3 ideas 1 of them is completly stupid but others sound fun :P

1. Give hunters a healing spec

2. The ability to collect items to get a legandary pet as our legandary item or legandary item for our pet to use

3. The ability to gear our pets and give them a set bonus and hold things as a unique sort of option to hunters like eg. shamens have totems, mages get portals, paladin gets a imune bubble so on

post your thoughts below :P thanks for reading look forward to hearing replys

By using Spirit Mend on someone.

TBH, I'd much prefer a Hunter tanking spec over a healing one.

You go around shooting people in the knee so they stop leading the dangerous life of adventuring and become a guard somewhere. It isn't the greatest combat medicine but it will save lives in the long run.

A legendary pet would be awesome. The trouble would be preventing it from scaling so it is always the best pet while still making it viable in later tiers as if it were a normal pet.

yeah i agree scaling it would be hard but would be different from anything else that happened as apposed to legends only being weapons

I feel tanking would be a better sepc for hunters rather than healing tbh. Mages on the other hand could go healing rather easily.

Hunters are in a good place right now when it comes to spec variety if you ask me. Marks is all about the shots, BM is all about the pets, and Survival is all about the stings and traps. It really doesn't need changing.

I can see it now:
Hunter: *takes aim at a fellow party member with his bow* Let me heal you!
Injured Teammate: Uh... Are you sure about this?
Hunter: This'll work, I swear!
Injured Teammate: But, I just saw you use that same bow to put an arrow clear through that demon!
Hunter: Trust me! I know what I'm doing.
Injured Teammate: Okay....
Hunter: *lets the arrow fly*
Injured Teammate: *screams as the "healing arrow" penetrates their skin*
Hunter: You okay, man?
Injured Teammate: *falls to the ground in convulsions*
Hunter: *rushes to the teammate* It couldn't have hurt that bad... *pulls out the arrow to inspect it* Oh, crap, serpent sting...

you can't compare a mage's portal to combat abilities/spells like totems

"Ow," says the tank. "You just shot me with a damned arrow. What the hell, hunter?"
"But that was a healing arrow. It penetrates your skin and while it seems like it would do damage it is really healing."
"Oh. Okay. Seems silly. Pulling. Owwww!"

Healing traps for AoE heals, needle-nosed arrows filled with healing potions, pet interference (takes a percentage of the tank's/target's damage for them and increases dodge), aspect of the reptile for health regeneration

make up whatever you want, a wizard did it

2. The ability to collect items to get a legandary pet as our legandary item or legandary item for our pet to use

Do want.
