...like what? Jeez this is like pulling teeth.


Not doing this again. Every time I have pointed out flaws in your guides you have very happily told me why you are never wrong and has left little impact.

I'll just remind everyone that the majority of it is based on random battlegrounds and 1500-1600 2v2 arenas which should automatically be a huge red flag to anyone reading.


Speaking of red flags, how is the DDOS squad in Dara doing? Right now you guys are the laughing stock of the whole PvP community. Arena Junkies, the WoW forums, everywhere.

Just because the OP isn't Glad doesn't mean he can't make a topic about hunter PvP. Get off of your high horse.

If you think you can make a better topic, do it. It's clear that the OP is the only person here who had the balls and the knowledge to make a detailed PvP topic like this. Don't insult him for being the only person on the hunter forums to step up to the task.

Sticky requested. There should seriously be one of these topics for every class forum. Given the sheer numbers of PvP questions in every class forum, a kick-!@# topic such as this should definitely be something to be sticked.

I am so proud to see a guildie of mine create one of these

/tear


Thanks man! I appreciate everyones positive feedback :D

So how up to date is this guide? I've been playing my monk more lately since I PvE more but my hunter is my PvP toon since he has gear already. I haven't really played him in probably close to a month. Didn't really look up any changes besides the BW one.

Is BM still the go to spec? Or is MM/SV making it close?

He is constantly updating it, it seems. as he gets new information, other opinions, so on and so forth.

Re evaluate the usefulness of binding shot. When used properly it is very strong- and also I do not like the way your evaluation of talent's 'scores' is also based on the strength of other talents in the same tier, they should be judged and 'scored' separately without taking the others in the tier into the judgement of that one.

Also, you have aspect of the iron hawk above spirit bond*- Exhil is really the most picked/ useful talent in this tier but some who are very good at kiting/ avoiding high damage can effectively use spirit bond when expecting long periods of low damage incoming- Just as it is with pve.

It's 5.1 current, although I am constantly updating as I find new information etc.

BM is still very strong with the CC breaks, however with the nerfs to lynx rush and Bestial Wrath Marks is starting to look just as good as BM.

Survival is still possibly THE worst pvp spec of ALL the classes in the game, lacking any burst outside of LnL and STILL no dispel protection.

By was of a bump you could also add something about the fact that you can swap your talents and glyphs in arena now based on the comp you are facing.

Only problem, add ons can often bug that out with a message "blah blah add on blocked whatever" and you need to reload ui to make it work again. Just dont reload UI in arena or even weirder things may happen, like once after reloading the UI I could not use any of my abilities, none at all ..

I fail to see there EVER being a situation where you would take Binding Shot over Silencing Shot, and if there is it's most likely VERY situational.

As for the talent ratings...Of course I'm going to rate them that way, rating them each separately doesn't make any sense. Each of the talents on the same tier is competing for your talent point, so it makes the most sense to compare each of the talents on the same tier.

For instance, Binding Shot would be much better if it was on the level 15 tier, because then you could have Binding Shot AND Silencing Shot. However, it's not. It's competing with Silencing Shot.

Yeah, all those talents are pretty even on that tier. I just prefer iron hawk because I feel like it's more useful in the long run than the other two but that's not based on any hard math or anything. Plus I don't want an extra keybind in exhil.
