Worgen Hungter who wants to be a skinner.

5 posts in this topic

Hello,

I want to create a Worgen Hunter to start over a new game with my 4 other friends. I will play PVE based games. We are not into PVP stuff. I have never played Hunter and Worgen is also very new to me.

I have read many guides but this one is what I really liked:

http://www.icy-veins.com/beast-mastery-hunter-wow-pve-dps-guide

According to this guide we should select professions which provide focus. But, I really want to go for skinning and leather-working. Leather-working is in the suggested professions list, but skinning is not. As far as I know skinning also provides bonus critical hits later in the game. However, I believe there is reason for skinning is not in the list.

As a result my heart wants to select skinning and leather-working. But I will feel non-perfect unless I get engineering.

Please help me. What should I do ?

I don't want my friends to abandon me because my build is not perfect which happened before on another game (pleae do not post about this, it hurts me. thank you)

notes:

+ please also consider that, I am also a new player and I don't have any in game gold. So I will not be able to buy AH materials as well.)

+ our party will play only at night time and our group time is very limited. But I can create an alt to gather materials on day time.

Um....dude? You do realize that, unless you have thousands of gold laying around and are on a server with a godlike auction house, skinning is required to max leatherworking?

What most people do is take the gathering profession (such as skinning) when they are first starting out, max their production professions completely (leatherworking for you), then when they have it maxed and are max level, unlearn skinning and work on engineering either with a mining alt character or through the auction house.

Having an alt that is mining and skinning as his professions is also a way to go, but that character will be weaker because of it.

Good luck.

I think this will solve the problem:

Worgen Hunter (beastmaster)

Professions: Engineering / Leatherworking

Pandaren Monk (dps/tank dual talent)

(alt character for gathering. may be rarely used for as a tank if main tank is not available)

Professions: Mining / Skinning

For my alt character Pandaren monk:

Mining will provide toughness for tank build

And Skinning will provide bonus crit for dps build

Also leatherworker can make not so bad armor for both of my characters.

What do you think. Will it work?

As Foxyareku said, have leatherworking AND skinning on your hunter while you level, and then get rid of skinning and replace for engineering when you are maxed out.

The reason I say this is that your other alt isn't holding your profession progression back if you focus on the hunter.

Also skinning would be pretty poor for a monk tank and about as good for a monk dps as it would eb for a hunter dps ...

With all this in mind, it will also allow you to do blacksmithing on your monk which may sound daft but will be good for both tanking and dps, and even healing if you change you mind.

You worry too much over nothing.

First of all, this is a game, and you can roll with anything you want or like.

Secondly, like others said, skinning is required for new character to level leatherworking, I went that way when I was starting back in cata, and I feel fine about it.

Thirdly, the profession choice does not affect you that much. For example, this Marksman Maximum DPS Profile at Zeherah's does 192k dps with ideal professions and 189k dps NO professions. So, even at maximum gear levels and with ideally executed rotation difference is around 1.5% of DPS.

It's nice to have them, but they do not and should not define you or your playstyle.

Roll with what you want and stop worrying.

If you're gonna underperfom it will not be because of your gear or profession choices.

      I have a lvl 104 MM hunter currently, with 7.1.5 I have heard BM is more viable. Should I A) switch my spec now for leveling B) keep MM for leveling but dump AP into BM artifact. 
      If "A" what should my basic build look like?
       
      THanks for the help!

      Hello all,
      So, first off, I've decided to bring my hunter out of retirement and have begun the (not so horrid) grind. I've reached the point in Legion where I have both my BM and MM artifacts and I've messed around the current "best" talent choices and rotations to try and see how they play out.
      I'm in the early stages of Legion levelling (currently 103) but I have mained a Death Knight since just after Legion started and wanted a nice old school rDPS alternative for when the raids call for it. I've messed around with both specs *briefly* (and naturally as I level I'll get a better feel for them both) and I can't really decide which route I'd prefer to go down and with the incoming changes to BM (buffs all around it seems) and nerfs to some aspects of MM I'd really like to gather the opinions of other people to help me decide which route is best for me.
      Things I've noticed so far:
      1. Focus regen is an issue in BM and too a lesser extent in MM, I constantly find myself out of focus for up to 1-2 seconds, so I'm stood AAing - is this normal? A product of low, under-geared, lack of haste?
      2. Sidewinders feels HORRIBLE to use. I'm all for using what is best for that DPS race, but this talent just feel so poor to use. It might be a product of the way I play my Frost DK, but I like having filler spells, and the loss and or Arcane and Multi shot spam just hurts my gameplay feel.
      3. Did I mention Sidewinders feels horrible? The fact it pulls everything unless I'm hugging my target in melee range really doesn't make sense to me either. Why is this the mechanic?
      4. From a round of log reading I've seen that both BM and MM (as of 7.1.0) perform better in various fights and in various ways -- But my guild mates tell me otherwise. This could be a lack of them personally playing either spec, but just something I wanted to query what people think, although I guess with the changes coming it isn't as relevant now.
       
      For anyone that can give me any advice on which way to go it would be very appreciated, I'd love to get back into Hunter, I just really can't decide which spec will suit me best in playstyle and raiding! (Also, I'm torn on a class fantasy level because Windrunner bow vs 2 pets!)
      Thanks for taking the time to read (and reply!)
