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.

      Hello everyone.
       
      I've been playing hunter MM as my main for a while, but lately i've noticed that my DPS output might not be as high as it should. A couple of months ago, I tought it might be my ilvl or my mastery that was too low, but i've tried different builds and i still can't get closer to some other hunters I run into some ToS H pugs.
       
      I'm actually sitting at 938 iLvl. Don't have many BiS, but my stats are kinda high. My weapon relics are bad(low ilvl, i'm still stuck with 915 relics), and I still didn't get any other good legendary besides the Soul of the Huntmaster.
       
      So my question is: Am I doing something wrong or it's just my relics/trinkets that aren't very decent? I was happy when i get past the 1M dps mark, but now i'm stuck at that point, and I can't see to get past that.
       
      Here's my armory link: https://worldofwarcraft.com/pt-br/character/azralon/piccola
       
      Hopefully you guys can help me out on this. Thanks!

      - Actively doing dungeons/world quests to improve your gear and artifact weapon.

      Hey, so I've recently decided to main a BM hunter for the rest of legion and was just curious if there was some helpful tips out there (I've been reading up on the guides/forum posts but trying to see if I'm doing ok).
       
      this is me. https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-us/character/nagrand/greenmidget
       
      sorry, I haven't done this before so I don't have any data to link or know how to use stuff like Warcraft logs or sims. I've also haven't done many runs of tombs yet so don't have any tier pieces.

      looking at the icy veins guides I've talented for dire frenzy but didn't realise how much mastery I ended up with. Have I gone too crazy with mastery, should I be adjusting my stat prio better? Thinking I should probably gem for more haste. Most of my enchants/ gems I'm using are just ones I had the highest rank for and cheapest to make so my necklace is probably enchanted wrong.
       
      i probably specced for mostly single target and think I've been doing fairly poorly for AoE damage compared to other people around my ilvl. Although I know to use multi-shot to refresh beast cleave I probably spam multi-shot more than the 4 secs needed, don't really use dire frenzy effectively, use titan's thunder basically whenever it's off cooldown, don't really know when I'm meant to be using aspect of the wild or whether I should be using beastial wrath in AoE fights. Should I be using murder of crows in AoE fights as well or is it just a waste of focus?
       
      For single target I think I'm doing alright so far (only recently got the legendary boots so not sure how much the kill command cooldown should affect my rotation). Still don't really know when the best time is to be using aspect of the wild but I was basically doing the same as the icy veins guide. My opening sequence is usually something like Murder of crows, beastial wrath, titans thunder, then just kill command, cobra shot, kill command cobra shot etc.
       
      Looking at icy veins guide I think I'm meant to be doing murder of the crows, beastial wrath, dire frenzy, titans thunder, then another dire frenzy straight away, aspect of the wild then normal rotation. After that it's just kill command/cobra shot I guess. While beastiality wrath is in effect should I only be spamming kill command/cobra shot for the quick cooldowns or should I still be using dire frenzy during this time? I use titan thunder when it's off cooldown and dire frenzy whenever it has 2 stacks. I usually just used murder of the crows when it was off cooldown but the guide seems to indicate that I should wait the extra 30 seconds and time it with my next bestial wrath. As for aspect of the wild I usually forget I even have this move and don't use it effectively, do I wait and combined it with bestial wrath? Wait and use it when I'm low on focus? Or use it as soon as it's off cooldown?
       
      Thanks for listening to my rambling and hopefully thanks for your reply.
       
      P.S. It's probably more of a personally choice or situational choice I guess but should I be talenting myself more for AoE for mythics. Example, one with the pack, volley, aspect of the beast?

      Survival: "We need a buff. I will team up with my other survival homies and... damn it, is there no one else playing survival?"
      BM: "What the f*ck is goin' on?"
       
      What do you think about the patchnotes?
      Will there be a compensation with the new artifact system?
      What did the Porcupines do wrong?
