Hi All,

I'd like to play 3s with my two buddies. One of them has a hunter (BM, but he can play any hunter spec really) and the other can play Holy Pala or Resto Druid. Having read some of the posts, it seems clear that BM and Holy is the way to go. What would be the best 3rd spec for hunt/healer for now and full gear, assuming gear scaling affects some specs more than others, meta changing etc?

We could go with KFC, but I'm now thinking if Thug, Jungle, PHD or HLx would be better maybe. In terms of preference/classes available I already have a Fury War geared, as in full honor and 2 epics, but gear catch up aside, I'm probably better at casters tbh (just 2,2 xp on lock but still..) and could gear up a melee if needed, as I'm quite decent at learning new classes.

INB4 Fotm, I'm playing casually and just don't want to gimp my buddies by tryharding with a suboptimal spec/comp.

Thanks in advance for any advice. Cheers

Edit: TL; DR: in Hunt/Heal/X what's best as X? ;)

Really depends on what's quing. At the highest end of the ladder, thug is probably the most powerful unless there's holy paladins, in which case you basically lose. Ret Hunt can be more versatile but generally less effective (you have a better chance vs hpals, not as easy vs others). Jungle is a similar story, better than Ret Hunt in some matchups (Warlocks etc.), worse in others (Hunters).

edit: I think Lock Hunter X can do well vs Hpal wizards but td;dr the best hunter comp depends on what's queing

edit2: Read your entire post, i'd recommend Jungle as a general ladder grinder Hpal/BM comp. If you can't find a feral ,a rogue would be fine too.

I prefer combat because my dong is large and I will face the enemy like a man rather than sprint over to a pillar for a re after my opener is up.

sorry, I don't speak duellist

Paladins just got smacked with the nerf stick, so maybe not so much anymore.

I wouldn't call a 25% nerf to NS a big nerf. Still tops people with wings.

Jungle, Thug , Ret/Hunter , Hunter/Lock

Depends on what you que into like aveng said but they are all relatively strong and if you grind into the ladder with either one you will eventually get a good streak of ques for the comp you pick.

Doesn't really matter what you que since every mage/pally/x and lock/pally/x is auto lose as bm

That being said id que hunt/lock or thug since those are a lot more fun to me personally

Really appreciate all the responses guys. It may sound stupid, but it's one of few positive things in an otherwise terrible day (huge thunder storm rolling over my city, breaking trees, crushing my car etc).

Time to level up my feral then I guess. Apologies in advance to all the people I stunlock to death. Hate the game, not the player;).
