#4245589 How do I write a guide?

Posted Megatf on 28 October 2014 - 08:59 PM

When I wrote guides it was pretty much like this:

Mods - You don't really use them so I doubt this section would be something you'd elaborate on.

Macros - Don't have to go too indepth on them depending on your audience (Hunter forums or Arenajunkies, if Hunter forums you'll probably have to explain a little more).  But simply listing all the ones you use with a basic instruction of what they do will be huge for most aspriing arena hunters.  I'd like to get a copy of your macros sometime.

Gear Min/Maxing - Why you pick a specific gem/reforge setup for max DPS.

Spec - This is probably the most important, as Hunters copy specs but don't know why they are copying them.  They just go "R1 hunter is doing it I'll do that too".  For example a lot of hunters used to get Blink Strikes and ToTH while you were rocking Fervor and Birds.  How you pop fervor to setup a burst, or why Crows are so much better than Blink Strikes.  Also the importance of when to swap Iron Hawk for Spirit Bond depending on the comp you're fighting.  Back when I was playing Hunter drain spec 7/31/11 in S3 or some shit with the pet increased run speed to keep the healers in combat while I viper stinged their team to death.  Or how I swapped back to a higher DPS setup when in S4 I discovered that Freeze Traps lasted 13 seconds if you specc'd into it and we could CC chain a healer for an infinite amount of time between cyclone bash scatter and freeze.

Glyphs - Which are your primary glyphs and why, and which glyphs do you swap too against specific teams/classes.

Tricks and Trades of the Hunter class - Disengage Root into a Freeze Trap.  Wyvern into Freeze Trap.  Stun into Freeze Trap.  Knockback off ledge.  When to switch trap launcher on and off.  Why it's important to target healing stream totem instead of just mashing DPS.  How you make sure your pet growl always gets grounding totem.  Your DPS rotation and the proper use of big dmg abilities like Crows and using fervor.  Essentially all the little things you do that seperate you from other hunters.  Anyone can hop on the hunter class and mash damage abilities and get a trap, it's how you do them, and the really minor things you do.  "I just explosive trapped that shaman into my freeze trap I missed earlier, I'm a god".  Those kinds of things.

Then explain the role of Hunter in the comps you play, the strongest it seems being KFC and Junglecleave.  How you coordinate with your teammate, what you do against wizards, who you're prime targets are, and how you communicate with your teammates.  Writing basic strategies for comps or classes you fight frequently.

Thats the stuff most players want to read.  If you play a hunter, you know what your abilities do, it's when and how to use them effectively in ways they haven't thought of is probably the most important.

I learned a lot of new things when I posted my first 2200+ 2v2 hunter/priest guide just by the nice replies asking why I didn't do certain things that they had learned or figured out that I never even thought of.  The guides I wrote helped me out as much as I was trying to help other hunters.

(One last thing, following up your guides with twitch highlights is pretty helpful as well, people love videos with a transcript of what you're doing)

- About yourself

That's the way I do mine at least :)

Have yet to see an update 6.0 Hunter guide so I think you are probably one of the only hunters qualified to write one. Any who to begin you might want to start with :

1- Introduction: Explain what changed in 6.0 (What has been added and removed)
2 - Introduce the main abilities for hunters: Things like Chimera (use on cool down/Aimed shot for focus dump); things like tranq shot and just generally our common abilities. Later you can introduce small tips for these abilities (toggling trap launcher and other little tips)
3 - Races: Explain what races are the best and why.
4 - Talents: Pretty self explanatory; described each talent and its place in the game. What talents are mandatory, situational, and useless (you can also add small tips on how to use the talents)
5 - Glyphs: (What to use, when to use them, which ones are mandatory)
6 - (Optional) Key bindings for those who are looking for some advice.
7 - Lastly, you can introduce simple macros, their purpose etc..

Sorry.. I was bored.

Which is fine.  Melee is for pve/kids b/c they are easier to play.  I always go back to my mario kart or F-zero (for older players) example.

For Mario Kart, Koopa Troopa and Yoshi were great for intermediate play b/c very forgiving, great turning + acceleration.  However, you were going to lose to a well played Bowser/DK that didn't make mistakes b/c higher top speed (SKILL CAP).

That's why most of you play melee.  Brainless easy train town.  If that was viable at top end tournament play the game would be in serious trouble.

I played rogue for 2 years, I got 2900. I played lock for THREE DAYS and got 2920. Your statement is invalid. Casters are SOOO much easier than melee. You get to play, you have more than one trinket, you have spam-able cc and you have a ranged kick. Go away

rip the dream. To answer those asking why we played shadowplay over LSD:

We obviously could've played better, but every time we fought them on Live we got dampened in the LSD vs LSM matchup and just lost.

shadowplay was the last hope for us, unfortunately that didn't work out.

I feel like every season whatever classes that are decent are always hated. There's also the people who claim every season of WoW progressively gets worse, but continues to pay and sign in every day to play; then there's the guys who always reminisce about the good ol' days and never shutup, I.e: "WoW has been shit since the end of BC" - BC players, "Wow has been shit since the end of Cata" - Cata players, "Wow has been shit since the end of MOP" - MOP players. It's funny because 90% of the people who claim the game is shit continue to play it. Oh and you can't forget about that one guy Flannelsoff who endlessly makes remarks about how shit WoW is even though (to my knowledge) doesn't play the game anymore. Why come post on a WoW forum all day about how shit Wow is and how much you love bongwater?
