Are hunters really that bad?

Hunter
I've been hearing really bad things about them but my main always has been my hunter...what's the dealio
Basically;
MM Hunter = Below Disc Priest in DPS
Surv hunter = Bottom DPS of the DPS classes.
BM Hunter = Below average DPS PVE, Cute but pretty pissweak PvP.
Beastmastery is absolutely destroying in pvp, not sure what you are talking about
Basically;
MM Hunter = Below Disc Priest in DPS
Surv hunter = Bottom DPS of the DPS classes.
BM Hunter = Below average DPS PVE, Cute but pretty pissweak PvP.


BM Hunter is top DPS for a Hunter, but near the bottom of all classes/specs in overall DPS.
Survival is 2nd behind BM.
Marks is a bit behind SV.

Whomever told you that SV is the bottom for Hunters and is also the bottom of all classes ... is wrong.

------------------------------------

Hunters aren't in a good place right now in PvE. BM is putting up a decent fight in PvP due its bursty nature, but hopefully all 3 will get some attention from a PvE perspective soon.

You're doing it wrong.

Any time anyone runs a damage meter in PVE, my BM hunter is always tops. And I do instances at the lowest level possible.

And I pretty much rule PVP. Can't remember the last time I wasn't top 3 in damage in battlegrounds ... frequently, No. 1. Plus with all the extra utility I have now, I'm more powerful than ever.

Just don't get the hunters are weak complaints. I'm not weak. Not even close.

The stat scaling when you get to 90 is very poor for the gear we currently have.
I've actually started doing decent damage once I got ok gear. The PVP gear also helped quite a bit since RNG hated me. Doing 45k+ hopefully I can pump out more in a Raid environment with buffs though.

.

SV is at the bottom of DPS, it's not at the bottom for hunters.
DISC priests are not DPS these days, they're healers/shielders/supports with a little DPS when they don't need to heal.
MM hunters are below THAT.

What I was saying is that MM isn't even in league with other DPS'
Whereas, SV is at least on their level, it's just at the bottom of that level.
The only spec that can even try and keep up with average DPS is BM
Paladins are for TRYHARDS!!

You're level 80...at 90, relatively large discrepancy in DPS between hunters and...well, just about everyone.
My level 80 hunters aimed shot hits for as much as this pallys t.v irrelevant I know but I don't see how hunter could be below pally.
Some popular simming reports have shown the three hunter specs to hold three of the bottom four spots. The only non hunter spec in these four spots is boomkin*. Which is easily countered by a rather strong feral spec , or tank/heal specs. Pve hunters are obviously going to be buffed as this would constitute new highs in futility.

*Of all classes and specs....boomkins again. unfair >.< , they need love.

back on topic , hunters got screwed lol.
Well this is disappointing, hopefully some hunter buffs are in store. Also Cobra and Steady shot need a buff they do such crap damage.
