#4096371 5.4.7 Hunter Guide, For new players

Posted Aces on 09 April 2014 - 05:24 PM

Posted Image

A Nice simple guide to gearing, speccing and gemming your 5.4.7 Hunter, for PvP.

Requesting a more indepth guide from a High rated hunter, on the ins and outs of arena if possible!

Gemming, Reforging, and Gear

Currently it is:

Red: +160 Agi
Blue: +80 PvP Power + 80 Agi + 80 Agi + 160 hit
Yellow: + 80 Agi + 160 Crit
Meta: PvE Crit meta, or PvP Meta (Try buying both of these to swap out helmets vs. different comps)

Posted Image

Belt Buckle for an Extra slot

3% is the hit cap.

Reforge Into Crit wherever you can.
Reforge into Mastery where you can not.
Reforge out of haste.

Posted Image

Enchants

Shoulder: +200 Agi + 100 Crit
Back: + 180 Crit
Chest: +80 stats +200 Resi
Wrist: +180 Agi
Hands: +170 Mastery
Legs: +265 Agi + 165 Crit
Feet: +140 Agi
Weapon: Living Steel Wep chain, Glourious Tyranny

Professions

Engineering + Tailoring are BiS

Talents

Posted Image

Roots are nearly always better as they have multiple uses, Trapping off, keeping Melee at bay, forcing Freedoms out the enemy team, forcing Cloaks etc, Posthaste just isn't as good, and CTHC never feels worth it to me, personally, as you don't really have a chance to get that 3rd deter off, however could work well vs. Spellcleaves.

Posted Image

This one is really a no-brainer for me, a 6 second CC with a 30 yard range, it's too good to give up, It fool proofs your cc, Warrior eats your trap? Wyvern healer and you have double cc going. Binding Shot DR's Warrior stuns in KFC, and HLS, and Wyvern can force Tremors whilst being on a different DR.

Binding shot could work however, with Kitty cleaves and PHD's who rely alot more on huge damage, than CC, or against TSG's to stop the cleavers.

Posted Image

Exhil is out of the picture post Readiness change, So you have the choice of a base constant 10% damage reduction, or a BF affected dampening affected heal for 3% every 2 seconds, which requires your pet to be alive.

Do the math!

Posted Image

Thrill of the hunt is brilliant for preserving focus and doing big damage, paired with Blink strikes, this is Hunter talents 1 and was previously Cookie cutter.

Posted Image

However, since some theory crafting happened recently, some of the top Hunters have been running;

Posted Image

Fervor grants an instant 50 Focus, which can be what you need to score a kill after you focus dump them low, and is the exact same cost as the talent it's paired with.

Dillypoo on the MoC / Fervor talent choice:

Quote

Oh and PS AMoC no longer procs wild quiver mastery, it was nerfed so serpent sting and  AMoC would no longer proc wild quiver. However it is still a useful burst cd, and it is very strong against other hunters. I'm going to play around with it some more today.

I haven't used it since nerf, but I know Esandies(Hurako/Huraka) on US uses it a lot, as well as Jellybeans. On EU Souken tends to use AMoC as well, however unlike the US hunters using it, he also goes for fervor over ToTH. Will play around with it more today, prolly gunna use ToTH though over Fervor with crows since ToTH is more focus efficient overall.


Posted Image

Most reliable damage of the 3 since powershot was Nerfed, Barrage risks breaking CC, and is lackluster.

Glyphs

Posted Image

Solace: Your Freezing Trap and Scatter shot now Remove all Dots - Needed so CC won't break.

Animal Bond: While your pet is active, all healing done to you and your pet is increased by 10% - Flat healing increase, which is great for hunters who are often the kill target, and helpful for the pet too which can be targeted, and thanks to the pet res change is up nearly 100% of the time.

The third spot is open to a couple glyph's, but I find -

Explosive Trap: Add's a Knock back to the trap. Works best.

Camo Glyph: Slows your movement speed whilst in camo, but stealths you. - Great vs. Rogue teams to avoid openers.

Macros


I'm going to plug the hunter who made me pick mine back up of the shelf's Macros here, as they're written 100x better than my own:

http://pastebin.com/vwVv2UJH

In general, though, you will need:

Wyvern Arena1, 2, 3.
Scatter Arena1, 2, 3.
Tranq Arena1, 2, 3.
Ros Party 1, 2, 3.
Freedom Party1, 2, 3.

The rest are pretty standard, Swifty Macro's and Focus macro's

And an Errors + Gryphons script:

#showtooltip Every Man For Himself
/script UIErrorsFrame:Hide();
/run MainMenuBarLeftEndCap:Hide();MainMenuBarRightEndCap:Hide()

Hunter Comps

HLS - Is strong right now, the Comp has incredible amounts of CC, and plays alot like WLS, just with much more control and utility.

KFC - will have another season moving from strength to strength, the comp is constant pressure, and can train 1 target into the ground. No healer can outheal the Damage, but the comp can lack for CC if traps are missed, and has easily counterable cooldowns.

Beastcleave - Is good right now. The purge on both dps means it poses trouble for every Paladin and priest it q's into, and within small burst windows does some of the biggest damage in the game. However, alot of the CC dr's, making it much less CC reliant.

Junglecleave - The way Prideful gear has affected stats has made this comp super strong, played alot like TSG, you find a target, and you train it with unhealable damage until it dies.

SHDK - Works with SV too, SHDK plays alot like KFC, just with a DK at the helm instead. Trades surviviabilty for more damage.

RshamThug - Another 5.4.7 exclusive comp that didn't exist last season, It runs like RM/X, Stealth openers to force cooldowns, whilst the Rogue re's 24/7 and the hunter pressures and supplies CC.

#3777982 CENTRAL HORDE SERVER POLL

Posted Lacrymosa on 23 September 2012 - 11:08 AM

Aw, are you worried that if i make my triumphant return to Mannoroth I'll steal your 'big fish small pond' throne right out from under you? And just to set things straight, if you would bother looking at my armory you would see that im not a 2300 resto druid. I think I was 2410 or something on our kfc before we had losses from Bathwater's trip dps on my last night of queuing. Everything else went as Tosan said. Was I playing with someone out of my league? Sure I was, and I have never ever once tried to pretend that I'm the best resto druid out there. However, I can say this- I am one of the VERY few resto druids to even see past 2300 this season, let alone getting glad. Starship is an amazing resto druid, and he played with Jahmilli/Zaddo (both exceptional r1 players), but I don't see you calling him out for getting "carried" by rank 1 players. Forgive me for it having been my first season on a resto druid, of course I had no prior titles to deem me "worthy" of playing with Tosan. All I know is, I did far better than most of the other prior gladiator and/or "rank 1" resto druids out there this season, most of whom never saw far past 2200.

Can we do Emerald Drama please. Pleaaaseee?
  • Even A:H ratio (not that I give a shit about world PvP)
  • Central Server
  • No queue times
  • Decent BG, relatively active ladders currently.
  • RPPvP (it's hilarious)
  • An incredibly active server-only forum dedicated to shit talking people
  • There's a warrior that they refer to as their "king", and the server stage giant Horde v. Alliance fights trying to take down said "king tank".
  • A giant guild made of only dwarves that RPs all over Ironforge every day.
#teamemeralddream


Adding some cool stuff about ED:

- They make server wide Bounty Hunter matches where there is a target on the opposite faction that everyone is trying to kill.
- Awesome economy because it's med-high pop, but not full like Illidan. Lots of PvE sluts to flood the market with crafted items.
- Good PvE guilds, if that's your thing.
-They actually have a forum that is about the drama that goes on, lots of shit-talking and bitching and I know everyone here loves that.


Anyway, I think if everyone can mutually migrate to ED and make it "the" PvP server for MoP it will be better than any previous server simply because of all the cool stuff. And it's central.

5x Rank 1, MLG and Blizzcon Regional competitor Hoodrych aka Hr aka "the boss"!

I've always tried to release only quality videos, and this one is no exception. I find cleave videos to be somewhat boring, so it's taken awhile to gather footage to make a decent Cataclysm video. I'm showcasing WLS/WLP on live and the TR. A lot of games were taken from my stream, so I apologize the quality isn't top notch. Hope you enjoy.
