World of Warcraft Hunter talk.

Filed under: World of Warcraft — Cranky Sysadmin @ 9:59 am

Much to my wife’s chagrin, I play a hunter in World of Warcraft. It’s a fun class with a lot of utility. The basics of a hunter that are different from other classes in WoW are:

  • Hunters are generally very good at ranged damage dealing.
  • Hunters are generally poor at close combat, but not as bad as mages and priests.
  • Hunters have a combat pet. Warlocks also get a pet, but their pet isn’t as versatile as a hunter’s pet.
  • Hunters have various traps for stopping or slowing the enemy or dealing damage.

The problem with being a hunter is that it’s a popular class, so it’s hard to stand out unless you’re really good… or really bad. Currently, I’m closer to bad then good, but I am trying to improve. You can find me on the Velen realm playing a high 60s Dwarven hunter called Og. Currently, I am reaching for level 70 and preparing for Kara (the first end game raid content in the expansion). I have some instances to run to gear up, and I am working toward getting enough Honor Hold tokens to get a Mark of Conquest. I suck at PVP (where have you heard that?), so it’s taking a while.

I got my sister hooked on this game too. She plays a Night Elf Druid who just hit level 40 and got her mount. She also has a hunter alt, but she seems to prefer the Druid.

The reason for this post though is to show off my Rip Blade Ravager. It has 3 skins that seem to change randomly when it is summoned, or when you mount/dismount. Find the video here. It’s about 3 meg and a little fuzzy. I’ll try to do better next time, but you should be able to see the color changes.

  1. Hey! I’m also on the Velen Realm as Schmesy. Priests poor at close combat…..what? I’m a lvl 50 priest & my husband is a lvl 50 warrior and most of the time I can whip him in a duel. Ha!
