World of Warcraft Hunter Guide
Out of all the classes in World of
Warcraft, the Hunter is by far the most versatile. Between
the available talent builds, the pet options and their
sheer prowess, it’s hard to go wrong with this class. If
you are considered playing this class with your character,
here is a comprehensive guide to success with the World of
One of the main keys to success in this class is making sure
that your character is right for the job. You’ll need to look
at your own personal strengths and make sure that they are a
good fit with the abilities of a hunter. Although the name
tends to conjure up images of tracking down and shooting
animals, the hunter class is much more than that. They have
definite strengths and weaknesses that can make playing this
class a little tricky.

What a hunter excels at: Ranged warfare, including the use
of bows, guns or crossbows. They are incredibly effective at
dispatching their enemies with these means. Their tracking
abilities are very strong and they are also very good at
surviving. The use of pets for this class means that the pet
can absorb much of the damage from an attack, leaving you with
more time to play.
What they don’t excel at: Melee fighting is the most
problematic for the hunter class. The class isn’t eligible for
armor until you reach level 40, so this can be quite an issue
in the early levels.
Now that you know what a hunter can and cannot do, you can
begin to craft your strategy for dealing with enemies.
Remember, the further off you are from danger, the better your
chances of victory will be. It is very important to invest in a
pet as a hunter since they can take up the slack when it comes
to melee fighting. While they are getting up close and
personal, the hunter can stay back and deal out damage from
Picking a Profession for Your Hunter
Now that you’ve decided to play this class, you’re going to
need to pick a profession that meshes well with a hunter’s
innate abilities. Your best bet is going to be the combination
of skinning and leatherworking since this will allow you to
make your own armor. However, another great combination is
mining and skinning since this will allow you to make enough
money to quickly purchase additional armor and weapons.
The professions that really don’t mesh well with a hunter
are alchemy, tailoring or enchanting. While they are incredibly
useful for other classes, there just isn’t much that will
benefit a hunter from these professions. A middle of the road
profession that can be very useful is herbalism, since you can
use this to make your own healing potions. This is very helpful
until you can get a pet to assist you with melee fighting.
As we mentioned previously, the hunter excels at ranged
warfare. You’re going to want to concentrate on bows and
crossbows, or if you have the skill, guns as well. When you
first start out, you’ll get a pretty basic bow, but you can
purchase a more effective one as you progressive through the
levels that will earn you more skill and help you become more
accurate. There are also many ranged weapons that you can earn
as you complete quests.
