Hunters have more buttons than you can shake a stick at now.


That can be said for all classes. But it does not make the basic play any more complicated unless you want to play it that way.

The point is most of hunter damage is tied up in few, easily executed attacks.

Thats not even true. You and your family should feel bad. (okay maybe true if you're survival)

Everyone saying that Hunters are the easiest either haven't played them, or don't care about playing them well.

If you just want him to play something and do okay, then let him choose and help him understand what to do.

Except that isn't really true anymore, it's an old mindset that is no longer valid, I believe BM in particular is really bad.

Elemental Shammy's are fairly easy, and somewhat fun too, though leveling is a bit irritating at times.

Destro Warlock is very easy and fun.

At this point in the game I would say just explain to him what each class can do and have him pick for himself. All classes are ridiculously easy to lave now with the nerf to the content and buff to survivability all classes have received he should be capable to level any of the classes for 1-90 easy

Pretty obvious with your statement you probably have never even played a Hunter past level 20.


It's actually quite easy to play a hunter at any point... He's obviously not going to be raiding since he's just starting, and 12.

IDK, Garajal is basically a target dummy.

Nah, I've leveled a huntard again, and I still say they are the easy mode of WoW. But they are limited in that all they do is dps. If that's all he cares about doing in endgame - being a dpser - then go huntard, and don't look back.

If you want options, if you're not sure - level a drood or pally. I'd say of the two a ret pally will be easier than a drood.

I'll chime in and say WW monk. I switched from my arcane mage to this guy and it's much easier.

Rising Sun Kick on cooldown. Tiger Palm every ~20 seconds to keep Tiger Power up. Spam Blackout Kick. You keep up one buff, and just replace a Blackout Kick with Rising Sun Kick every 8 seconds.

AoE is simple as well. Rising Sun Kick on cooldown still, then spam Spinning Crane Kick.

For leveling, you get the awesome monk XP quests. There's also a fun time from about level 40-80 where all you do is spam (glyphed) Spinning Fire Blossom.

Hunter (particularly survival) is probably the easiest class to play effectively. Hunters are also one of the hardest classes to truly master. The problem is the difference in damage output from an effective hunter to a master hunter barley makes up for the effort (especially since hunters can now cast everything on the move).

I raided with a 12 year old resto shaman in ToC and he was more than competent.

Frost DK, push the button with the glow around it, hit outbreak on cooldown.

2h Frost DK - simple rotation and it hits like a truck. I prefer DW b/c it is a bit faster paced and has a bit higher degree of difficulty to perform well. (more honestly though, it is mainly because rolls for weapon drops in raids has absolutely sucked for me. I'll play the sub-spec I have the better weapon for.) But, as far as simplicity goes, either frost DK sub-spec is pretty easy.

As a side note, my 12 year old son has little problem playing a DK. He is also leveling an arms warrior without much trouble.

first off he needs the level the character himself since he wants to play. his 90 levels will let him learn how to play his toon or hes doomed to be a huntard forever
