View Full Version : Hunter Getting back into WoW

07-19-2011, 08:57 AM
As the name says i am getting back into WoW after about 6-7 months of being gone. I just kinda wanna know what to expect. When i come back i'll be playing my Level 85 Hunter and my level 80 paladin. I just want to get an idea of what to expect when i come back since i have played in so long. When i lasted played on my hunter surv was the main spec and i was playing healing on my paladin. Has anything drastically changed for either of these classes? All help is appreciated.

Marksman is now the FotM spec for hunters but a good survival is competitive. Holy pallies are good, as they have been for a long time now.

Even BM is now competative dps. Sur is a bit easier on the rotation then MM; MM has a rotation when mob is over 90%, then a normal rotation, then a 25% and below rotation. While not rocket surgery, it does take a bit more awareness to push the dps than Sur.

Pallies are as op as ever; especially Holy Pallies - I love tanking and healing on my Pally these days.

BM? Maybe my info is outdated, I read BM hunters were the worse dps spec available in any class by a fair margin...

yeah its patchwerk style and yeah no one plays there toons that well.

and while BM is certainly behind, its not that far behind Ret, and no one demonises the paladins who go DPS
