Feb 7, 2013 Noobie Hunter, Pet question! In battle against multiple mobs, my pet will usually run back to me when the mob it's attacking dies, waiting for me to tell it to attack again. My pet is on Assist, is there any way to get my pet to simply go from one mob I'm currently in combat with, to another mob I'm currently in combat with by itself? Or do I really have to hit a mob first before my pet will attack it? I found opening with multishot can solve this but I don't want to do that every time.Ashkechum1 Feb 7, 2013
Feb 7, 2013 Hunter swifty one shot macro help? So, I need some help y'all. Is there a way to make a macro that casts both Stampede and then bestial wrath? When I press my one shot macro It casts bestial wrath then stampede. thanks.Rajx3 Feb 7, 2013
Feb 7, 2013 Time for a new spec for Hunters...RANGER! Yep, thought about this one for a long time. 1. No mail specialization (Much like a Rogue) 2. No companion (pets get in the way) 3. return of the dual wield short swords and bow. 4. Would have some healing capability, some stealthy attributes, and some limited Shamanic skills. Just a pipe dream, but........Otteson3 Feb 7, 2013
Feb 7, 2013 When are hunter nerfs going to stop?? Seems like the hunter class is the most hated in all of wow why? Pre MOP patch nerfed hunters no more polearm means no more reduced disarms we take the full duration now, nerfed Kill command not usable while detterrence is up, and Nerfed pets to a lousy 5-6 talent pts depending on pet spec. Patch 5.1 nerf the !@#$ out of BW so no we get chain cc'd and killed easily. i mean really whats the diff in being immune to fear and getting spam feared now by locks 3 fears is longer duration than bw and while we are feared it ruins the pt of BW to start with which is increased damage at a reduced focus cost. Also being feared while bw is up takes away spirit mend and masters call on top of the damage reduction while pet is cc'd and so are you. Now in the next patch they are nerfing our stampede's damage in Rbgs and arenas and the cd on Silencing shot is going up to 25 secs up from 20. Whens this crap going to stop???? i mean really just remove hunters from the game if this is all we are here for is to get hit with the nerf bat!!! Atm locks, mages, warriors, and lets not forget monks are way more OP than hunters seriously the nerf bat is being swung in the wrong direction.Brrek22 Feb 7, 2013
Feb 7, 2013 Crouching Tiger Hidden Chimera vs. Narrow Esc For arenas and pvp I see a lot of highly rated hunters (and just in general too) taking narrow escape over CTHC. I take it as well, but have always liked CTHC. And although most hunters take narrow escape, I have seen a few top rated hunters using posthaste and CTHC. Can't CTHC/Posthaste be just as good if not better than narrow escape? I mean sure the webs are nice, but there a lot of freedoms and abilities to break roots that classes have these days, and of course healers can dispel unless you cross CC them. CTHC gives disengage way more often and a deter every minute as opposed to every 2 minutes which is VERY useful sometimes. I never really tried posthaste, but I'd imagine that would be useful for kiting and such as well. So what do you guys think, is Narrow Escape really worth it to take over the other ones?Glinklegend1 Feb 7, 2013

Feb 7, 2013 Playing as any spec but BM.. Can I get away with it? Beast Mastery sims a good bit higher and is the spec of choice for pvp as well. Should I decide to take this toon into heroic content/rated pvp will i be putting myself at a real disadvantage by not playing BM? Pet micromanagement is anti-fun. Edit: Raidbot show Surv as a better choice in PvE so that I found the answer myself. But what about PvP?Terrybogard6 Feb 7, 2013

Feb 7, 2013 Lightningflash and Thundercall, same effect? Hey guys, I was curious about the Lightningflash and Thundercall guns, if their shooting effect is the same. I have been solo'ing heroic Vortex for Lightningflash for the cool shooting effect with the yellow lightning bolts to transmog it. Anyways Thundercall dropped, and from what I can tell looks to have the same effect as I see on WoWhead's pictures of a player using Lightningflash. I' was never able to get these guns when I was of proper level, so anyone who has had both if you could fill me in and let me know if both guns share the same bolt effect. Would save me time farming he instance.Greenmonstr0 Feb 7, 2013

Feb 7, 2013 Hunter Wipe Issues and Suggested Solutions Hi, I've been playing hunter almost exclusively since I started playing WoW at the tail end of TBC. One of the things that's always seemed to be a constant is how much micromanagement it takes just to keep from wiping a raid or instance run. I've probably caused more than my fair share of wipes from various hunter related issues, whether it was the hundreds of werewolves that came chasing my raptor out of the depths of shadowfang keep after I'd jumped down a ledge, leading to a sudden ragequit of the entire party, or getting yelled at about a pet taunting during a raid because I'd forgotten to turn off the taunt on one of the pets that came from stampede. I find it hard to argue with the old 'huntard' term cconsidering how easy it is to cause grief to others. I don't know if it's like this with other classes, but I do think a lot of the microing that goes into being a responsible hunter is unnecessary and only detracts from the game, as well as adding even more agony to an already over-buttoned class. These are the following issues that seem to cause the most problems for hunters, and some suggestions for fixes: 1. Aspect of the Pack -Raid wide speed buff that penalizes combat with a speed penalty. -Easy to leave on, makes hunters reluctant to use it, issue seems to pop up in almost every raid =Rather than the glyph of the pack, make 'effect is lost when entering combat' (Along with the cooldown to prevent aspect dancing) part of the basic spell, and end the pack issue once and for all. 2. Pet Pathing -If a hunter takes a shortcut by jumping down a ledge, the pet goes all the way around, aggroing adds the entire way and wiping the party. =Either disable pet aggro or keep the pet chained to the player. If a player can jump down a ledge, why can't their pet? 3. Pet Stances -Currently we have three stances for the pet, and only one that's really useful because using defensive and aggressive stances leads to unnescessary aggro pulls. Forcing the player to use passive requires micro management that often leads to sapping dps during rapid enemy switches, or using a macro set into the shot rotation that isn't exactly an elegant solution. =The entire stance concept seems to be misaligned with how hunters typically use their pets and could use a redesign, but in the meantime, why can't we just have a stance where the pet attacks only the target the hunter (or focus) is attacking? 4. Powershot -A high damage attack that pushes the target back -This is an interesting skill to have, especially for soloing mobs, but it's sort of a double sided spell, in that the damage is desirable but the pushback ruins dungeon and raid tanking. =Pushback really sounds more like something you would get from a glyph, so make it one and make Powershot into either a pure damage spell or add some other effect (such as frost or stun) 5. Barrage -A multishot that hits every target in a large area around you -It hits EVERYthing around you, aggroing all mobs in a wide angle and making it completely unusable in most raid situations =Hardly anyone seems to use this spell, why not give us back the old rain of arrows spell with a larger aoe, or another trap spell? 6. Stampede -Calls in all of your pets at once for a number of seconds -two issues here: If the pets kill their target, they act like they're on aggressive stance and start aggroing every mob around them, only to disappear a few seconds afterwards leaving you to deal with the newfound enemies. Second, since they cast whatever spell they're set to, they will cast their taunt if it's enabled (if you happened to be soloing with a different pet earlier). This leads to laborious switching in and out each pet before a raid to make sure the pet doesn't have its taunt enabled, which is a pain. =Do something more with the pet call window so that we can make alterations to their talent, stance and spell usage without having to summon and dismiss them one by one, and make the pets from stampede follow the stance that's selected for them.Morrostacks5 Feb 7, 2013

Feb 7, 2013 L40 and chain mail Is there any reason not to train for chain mail at L40? I'm still a bit of a newbie and soloing this character, but am bringing up an alt so I can do the entry level dungeons with it. I'll probably do dungeons with this character later once I get the hang of the keyboard and mouse in crowded combat. I am a MM leatherworker/skinner, so have been making most of my own kit.Reddervish7 Feb 7, 2013

Feb 6, 2013 BM Hunter Weapon speed and pets, and more. So, I have a few questions. First is should I use a 2.6 speed gun or a 3.0 speed crossbow (the crossbow has a higher lower min damage, and I think the top damages are the same, since both are heroic item levels). Will that make any difference? Also, what pets should I be carrying with me? I currently run with a Spirit Beast for the Mastery buff when in raids, a Devilsaur for the 5% crit raid buff, a corehound for when we don't have any other source of lust, then a spider for his net when I do some world PvP, and then Terrorpene the turtle for tanking rares. Is there a pet I'm missing for raid buffs such as haste? And for the last thing, I've noticed multiple sites saying what I should reforge for, and most say its agi>hit=exp>crit>haste>mastery and the other one that I've seen a lot is agi>hit=exp>mastery>crit>haste. So which one is the one to go with? Thanks for any help you guys can provide.Dethklòk7 Feb 6, 2013
Feb 6, 2013 First real non lfr raid ever!!! I'm really excited about this. But, one problem is they want my gear enchanted/gemmed/reforged. Wondering if I can get some advice about this.

Feb 6, 2013 Fresh 90 Hunter, help. Just hit 90 on my Hunter, looking for a gauge of where I should be. I am BM, still in questing greens with 90 PvP gear. I use KC on cooldown, Glaive Toss as close to on every cooldown as possible, I am never Focus capped and never Focus drained and I use Arcane short sparingly when I can. Dire Beast on CD, BW on cooldown and Lynx Rush on CD. I am doing about 25-30k in heroics right now, suckage or decent and where I should be? Oh, also the blue xbow from arena scenario.Grovelz5 Feb 6, 2013
Feb 6, 2013 Pet Taming - Broken? I was camping a spirit beast in twilight highlands when I saw a level 84 feral druid. I trapped him, successfully, then attempted to cast scare beast. However, I received the following error message "Invalid Target". It stinks because I ended up killing him so no other hunters would be able to get the tame, assuming that this is not a universal bug. I am really disappointed because I wanted to add one to my collection for the rejuvenation heal and the cyclone cc. I think it would be great for arenas. Anyways, has anyone else had this problem?Shòót1 Feb 6, 2013

Feb 6, 2013 A small idea for Hunter's weapon... I'm guessing a lot of hunters might have thought of this idea, might have been mentioned long time ago maybe... Have Blizzard thought of duel-wielding hunters like the Demon hunter in D3? Duel-crossbows, duel-pistols, and Bows, Rifles would be considered 2-h weapons. Would it be too much of work for them to add a whole new set of weapons for hunters, since they're busy with the new Titan project? I don't know but just a small idea that I personally would like to see in hunters.Kirino11 Feb 6, 2013

I was wondering if I should upgrade it ASAP with the feature disabled in the coming patch, or save my Valor points for other stuff. I'm not in a guild currently running raids so this is likely to be the best weapon I get for some time. I was leaning to upgrading it, but wanted to check here to see if I'd be better holding onto my VPs for something I overlooked. Thanks in advance!Greenmonstr4 Feb 5, 2013

Feb 5, 2013 Whats the problem here? Ok, so again im going to post some concerns about certain mechanics not working, Yes have posted in Tech as well as support, but get nothing but stupid answers and trolls. As you can see I have played this toon for a long time, was my second in 07, and have loved every single moment playing in BGs, but since gearing up to full malevolent, I am finding certain issue's that I have never come across before. I have tried every spec/gem/chant combo i can find, right down to copying a hunter/s in top ten Arena, as you can see 65% res, and 48 power, which is about the best i can seem to get with this gear, gems etc, but when in Bgs, I seem to lack crit, have tried all talents yet i'll be lucky if i crit for 30-40k, now at the end of the BG, and i have truly worked my !@# off, yes i can have decent total damage, but when coming up on classes 1v1 i just get smashed, 100-150 crits, where im at 40K, and yes this is with no def CDs etc. Yes I know other classes have res, but i just cant work out why I'm getting hit so hard, yet I'm not, I have done complete re installs of everything, run no adds etc, just to make sure, but still the same. Other issues too are,pet just standing there, while on assist, getting stuck, running off and disappearing, Enemies running right over traps, without setting them off( no they don't resist as traps are still there) powershot not registering damage at all, but takes my focus for it, all these issue's can take you right out of the game, would love at least someone else to say they have the same if not some of the issue's above, just to prove that I'm not going mad.Stingshot6 Feb 5, 2013
Feb 5, 2013 Rare hunter pets and the realm-merge!!!! Anyone know what happens with rare hunter pets or mounts (or any rare in general) and the fact that the realms are now merged?
