Alt appreciation – #HuntersWeek

Some of you might have noticed Laeliweyn has started something called Alt Appreciation. It’s a time for all the altoholics out there where we devote our time to appreciate our alts.

The point is to use 1 week for each class (see the full timerange and class list at http://laeleiweyn.blogspot.no/2013/08/alt-appreciation.html )

I didn’t see her blog post until a couple of days ago so I’m a bit behind, but I’ll start now with the #HuntersWeek which is the current class.

 

Anyway, back to #HuntersWeek – My hunter is currently a lvl 74 Orc Beastmaster Hunter called Hydra on Neptulon EU.

Disclaimer: I am not fakenicking the famous priest called Hydra, I didn’t even know him before I got all the whispers telling me I’m a fakenicker. I chose the nickname Hydra because it’s an awesome 3-headed beast from old mythology. Look it up.

The hunter class has always fascinated me and I found it extremely fun to play back in lvl 60 when I borrowed my friends account. I’ve never had a hunter myself, so it’s been a great experience to level it up. My first impression when I made my hunter was that the mana has been exchanged with focus, which is cool, and I no longer have to fill my bags up with arrows/bullets – BEST DECISION EVER MADE BLIZZARD :)

I also remember that I had to feed the pet quite often back in the day, or it would eventually leave me. This never occured to me on Hydra, sure I fed it a couple of times just to make it happy, but I don’t think they leave you anymore.

The spell I like quite a lot is Arcane Shot. I know it’s quite boring, but when you get the tier 4 talent (lvl 60) called Thrill of the Hunt you can litterally spam Arcane Shot as 1/3 of your shots will be free of cost. It can get a little boring in dungeons so I like to mix it up a bit, and nothing is better than doing some heavy crits with Multi-Shot.

One of the great parts about hunters is that you can have almost any pet you want. I love to have pets, it makes me feel less lonely when questing alone. I have 4 pets now:

– Bearstard (pun intended) – my bear tank

– Webmaster (pun intended again, since I’m also a webmaster/web developer) – my PvP pet

– Swineflu / Cat – my two DPS pets

Till now, the spider is my favorite PvP pet because it can web people. This is extremely useful in battlegrounds as it makes kiting 100% easier for me.

When I first saw Bearstard, it was truly love at first sight.

He’s been loyal ever since and helped me through rough times.

If you didn’t know, hunters are REALLY big, and this is just as an orc. Imagine a tauren hunter! (Yeah just kidding, Vaxigrip had some Noggenfogger)

I feel hunters are a bit OP, because I’m having an easy time in battlegrounds compared to some of my other classes, but there are still a lot of people who can pwn me… you just need the right tactic I suppose.

Don’t really know what else to write here, but if anyone wants to start a hunter I can tell you it’s really fun. Great class for those of you who like to slack a bit in dungeons and just do dps without the hassle of moving away from dangers like rogues for instance :)
