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.

      All applications will be reviewed and considered however if you are playing a class/spec combination we need then your chances of joining will be higher.
      A little bit of info about us:
      We are a group of friends and serious raiders on EU Twisting Nether looking to recruit skilled like-minded players into our roster for Mythic Legion raids and onwards. We will offer a sociable and fun raiding environment while maintaining a strong desire for progression. Our Discord is very active and we encourage all members to chat and play together not only for raids. The guild formed late March 2016 and fully cleared 13/13 Mythic Hellfire Citadel pre nerf shortly after. We've since been improving our world ranking every tier.
      We currently raid 3 days per week on Mythic: Wednesday, Sunday and Tuesday 19:15-22:15 server time. While it is not a lot we try to make the most out of our time. We run optional heroic/normal/alt/previous tier raids during off days in which raiders are welcome to come to. Our members also play other games outside raid times together where anyone is welcome to join(LoL, PUBG, HotS, Overwatch etc.).
      Our loot system for Mythic is RC Loot Council.
      What we expect from you:
      - We are a raiding guild with only a 9 hour per week schedule so you are expected to attend and be ON TIME! However we understand things can come up sometimes but please let us know.
      - Be able to speak and understand the English language and not be afraid to communicate with other members during raids.
      - Actively doing dungeons/world quests to improve your gear and artifact weapon.
      - Have a strong understanding of the current raid tier and be able to play your class to it's potential.
      - Always come to raids prepared(i.e. bringing food and potions, etc).
      - Come fully gemmed and enchanted with the correct stats for your class and spec.
      - Access to Discord and a working microphone.
      - Have a computer that can handle 20 man raiding and a good, stable internet connection.
      - Exorsus Raid Tools, Weakauras2 and RC Loot Council addons installed. We may ask you to install others.
      If you have any further questions please contact us at battletag: Vims#21684

      Hi and, first of all, thanks for your time. 
      I´m back to WoW after around 3 years, and I´m feeling quite confused yet. My main is a Hunter. I left it during WoD as a BM. Now I´m back, still with WoD expansion, and I feel the class has changed a LOT. No traps, quite a different composition, etc. 
      I´d like some help in order to set my talents and rotations. My intention atm, as lvl 100, is to finish questing Draenor (still quite a bit to do here) and then buy Legion and try to level up before the expansion comes. I like soloing (I guess BM should be my choice, but I´m here to hear your opinions!!) and I´ll try to avoid skipping content. I´m not in a hurry, just want to enjoy the whole lore-and-questing all the way up.
      Thanks again for your help!!!!

      Hello,
      The Sworn is recruiting DPS.  We are a Horde guild on Arthas and our current progression is 4/9 Mythic TOS.  We only raid two nights a week, Tuesday and Wednesday from 9:05 PM until 12:05 AM Eastern.  Currently, our main goal is to push Mythis TOS progression versus clearing farmed content, please keep this in mind if you wish to join us.
      From you, we would expect 100% attendance during your trial period; after that if you cannot make a raid or will be late it is mandatory to keep the raid leader updated.  In order to continue making good progression while raiding only two nights a week, we expect that you know your class inside-out and will research any bosses you are unfamiliar with prior to raids.
       If you are interested, you can either reply to this thread and link your most recent combat logs for review or hit me up on battlenet, Violentnacho, recruiting officer (violentravi#1826.
      Thank you for your consideration
      Xoxo

      According to Azortharion simulations, our best for Antorus will be Qapla/Soul+Dire Frenzy/OWTP , ¿what stats need this build? At this moment, we need Mastery/Haste for Dire Frenzy build and Critical/Haste for OWTP build: therefore, they are mutually exclusive, right?  Or at least I understand that.
      So, ¿what stats?
