Grabbed a random trade chat frost dk, no skype, jumped behind a box with the hunter hitting me while I watched Jah get killed by pinkrangers skill-capped HLD for 10 minutes until dampening was around 30%~ then killed the healer.

Yeah, its 2k. My DK is in full blues. I don't have half my abilities bound.

10/10 would play every day of the week, best game ever.

  • Far more reliant to individual skill than skype stun this trap this

  • Slower than 3s allowing for more mistakes leading to wins through capitalizing on mistakes and not defensives running out

  • Easier to find 1 person that 2

  • Far harder to counter something - no matter what you played against you had a fighting chance

  • Harder to get sniped

  • The imbalances of the game are smoothened out - easier to deal with one OP dps than 2

Have you ever played anything other than a warrior?  Just a serious question, because I feel like your take on 2s might be a little off if all you've ever played there seriously is warrior/healer.  For most of this entire game, warrior/healer has been a strong 2s comp with the potential to beat just about anything (even "counters"), which would explain why you see it like that.  But for other classes and comps, there are, and always were, EXTREMELY hard counters in 2s, much stronger than most things in 3s.  Counter matchups are (or at least, were - it's pretty much world of compcraft right now) far more manageable in 3s than in 2s.  Most of the time in 2s when you fight a hard counter, there is not a button in either one of your classes that would let you win that game.  As for the second point, that really is only valid with respect to WotLK.  In almost every other state of the game, 3s has been a good pace while 2s has been way too slow.  Again, this might not be the case for warrior/healer since warriors have pretty much always been able to dps someone down in short order in 2v2.

Posted Mattadoro on 29 December 2014 - 06:25 PM

dismiss pet and spec lonewolf, spec posthaste, kite without slowing pump dmg in to one and cc the other

good ones will find ways to get extra rp and strikes on pet so its not required to go lonewolf but sometimes it can be the answer

Nice, the class population of your random BG is a real good indicator of that. Or maybe it has something to do with the fact that Hunters are like the most common class.

#4310445 Why is honorbuddy not being banned

Posted rageTG on 21 December 2014 - 06:47 PM

I seriously hope people didn't think I was complaining about people using honorbuddy to level and bg.

I was complaining because the monk/enhance/warrior I faced were using honorbuddy to spell reflect/grounding every single thing my team tried doing the instant the buttons were hit, also shock.

#4287415 Hunter Stat Valuation & Pet Guide [WoD]

Posted Esiwdeer on 06 December 2014 - 03:46 PM

Crit is the best stat for consistency in arena imo, at least 33%. There's no spreadsheet or calculations. You gain 5% more crit from all sources, and you have a 60% more chance to crit on targets above 80% health.

I doubt you're only killing people in rapid fire. I am playing Thug at 2300 MMR with and without Lone Wolf, and no other Hunter including some reasonably famous ones have out-damaged me yet.

You need at least 33% crit for consistency, I would prefer 40% personally. I guess if you're playing with a Ret right now you need as mongo as possible, but for MM there's so much set up that I can't see why you wouldn't want to expect crits consistently.

Yeah, the other stats are "better" or more efficient, or whatever. But none of them are as good as critting, especially Multistrike. Why are we buying into Multistrike anyway? It's barely 20% better than our old mastery.

That's what this boils down to. Yeah, maybe our old mastery does more sheet dps in certain situations.

You don't need a spreadsheet to see 40% chance to crit on Kill Shot, let alone every Chimera and everything else in between.

I am really trying to see it another way, even if you're only killing people in Rapid Fire you could still make your Aimed Shot hit like that most times you cast it by just getting to 40%.

I can get 37% in blues right now, just hit your threshold and then get as much Agility as you can like every other season?

Not talking shit either, I know this is a weird time for Hunters. Crit is always good, Agility is always good. Finally, after swapping from Night Elf to Dwarf I think the 2% crit damage is noticeable, and I think you could make the MM Mastery worth a lot in the right situations. (especially since I literally haven't seen Aspect of the Fox used for anything good one time, might as well just use it to keep up your Mastery.)

If you don't need Mortal Strike, get Mastery from your pet. It's a sidegrade for you, but for other classes it is much better. Giving your Disc Priest Mastery is almost as valuable as the 10% healing Glyph.

tl;dr: I don't think you need to calculate crit, I think you just get it to a consistent place and focus on optimizing from there. Honestly surprised nobody has started using their pet for Sac and putting it away for Lone Wolf.

Hey about to hit 60 soon, and going to boost to 90 on Sunday.

Wife is out of town on Sunday and LF a good hunter who wouldn't mind sitting down with me for like half an hour on voice chat to answer some questions about the class and the game.  Trying to get back into WoW since pretty much the first season of WOTLK.

I played every game with Arena since WoW introduced it and always came in the top 1% of players.

I've given up trying to play any other game for PvP since the populations die out, and I said if Wildstar died that it'd be the last time I played any other MMO besides WoW.  So here I am.

If any high rated player here ever got help from one of my old guides or videos, and doesn't mind sparing half an hour to an hour on Sunday to answer some Q's, please shoot me a message.
i know i will not be able to dissuade you

but you can never unlearn what you will come to know about hunters if you proceed

#4183402 Hunter proffesions

Posted Kettu on 31 July 2014 - 09:04 PM

Max burst: Tailoring + Herbalism
Biggest crits: Tailoring + 320agi
Minimum RNG: 2x 320agi
Max uptime with high AP: Tailoring + Engi
Max PvE dmg: Tailoring + 320 agi

It really depends on preference, but as others said, in general the 2 best options are either Tailoring + random 320agi prof or Tailoring + Engi. For the average player Tailoring + random 320agi prof is probably best, as it's really simple and there's less stuff you have to keep track of.

For better players Tailoring + Engi might be better as you'll be able to time your burst when you actually need it. If you use your trinket and engi tinker on CD, you'll have a 50% uptime on agi CDs. When you're playing against comps with a lot of cc, you'll probably end up with somewhere between 70-85% uptime on trinket & tinker when you're not in cc. So technically, you do more damage (or at least you're able to). But then again, you're more likely to get cc'ed with your CDs up so it's kinda hard to tell. If you feel you know how to use your trinkets & procs effectively, engi + tailoring is best.

TL;DR

Non-Humans:

Tailoring + Engi

Humans:

Tryhards: Tailoring + Engi
Non-tryhads: Tailoring + 320 agi
