Why is Gelbin Mekkatorque not listed under Legendaries?  Is he listed at all?

What puts Dr Boom in Tier 2? And also for a hunter do you not value Leeroy Jenkins a bit more? :)

Great post as always Sottle! Love looking through these kind of things :D

Dr Boom is Tier 2 not because he's any weaker in Arena than he is in Constructed, all the Tier 2 Legendaries are still insanely good, but instead because other cards are stronger. In Constructed, Rag gets punished by BGH, Ysera is often too slow against finely tuned fast decks etc. These limitations don't really exist in Arena, so the cards are higher value, pushing Dr. Boom down a little.

Leeroy, eh, I debated it. I do value it a little higher in Hunter, but not really enough to move it up a tier. You still just want cards you can play on curve each turn and keep Tempo, you never want to be holding dead cards in your hand in Arena if it can be avoided.

Silent Knight 2 tiers above Argent Horserider for hunter? I agree that by default silent knight is a better card, but not for hunter. They work kind of the same way, the only difference is that silent knight has 1 more hp but lacks charge, which is important turnoff for hunter which are mostly agresive. You should really consider revaluation of neutrals depending on class, because currently you just assign really accurate default value for neutral cards, and if it suits particular class you just advance it by 1 tier, which is not enough in many cases imho.

You can't consistently draft aggro decks. This is why Hunter is the second worst arena class. The worst being Warrior, you can see that hero powers are important and they both have hero powers that don't affect the board at all. 

Not only has Silent Knight one health more, which really helps against hero powers, it also has stealth and you can play it on an empty board.

The changelog says you added Explorer's Hat to tier 6, but it's not actually there. Iluminator is also missing, as is Twilight Drake. These are my first three options.. not much help.

Thanks for the guide. Got 0-3 on first use.

You haven't read all of the arena guides. Hunter is among the three worst heroes in our Arena Guide. Picking it was a mistake. Then, I am definitely sure you made misplays. Provide please replays to see whether the fault is on our side, or on yours.

Nice, I got 12-0 with my last Hunter. I wonder if there might be other factors.
