Hello hunters,

did any of you tested any good pvp specc for hunter at 100 level?

stats,gemming,talents etc to help us?

 

This, at least for me, is not a forum that I will be participating in discussion about PvP. The thread is fine, I just wouldn't expect a response that holds much weight considering most of us are PvErs.

This, at least for me, is not a forum that I will be participating in discussion about PvP. The thread is fine, I just wouldn't expect a response that holds much weight considering most of us are PvErs.

Naturally, hardcore PvPers will probably want to use more specialised forums, like arenajunkies.com, but I think it's fine for casual players who occasionally dabble into PvP to discuss stuff here. 

 

We'll probably want to run with Binding Shot, Spirit Mend, Thrill of the Hunt and Power Shot. 

 

Other talents will largely depend on whether you're doing battlegrounds or arenas, and do you have a dedicated healer with you. 

 

I imagine most of the hunters will want to run Beast Mastery, as it has high burst on short cooldown, and several pet related problems were resolved, like our pet getting nuked all the time. 

 

That said, I know I will be playing a different game. What I like the most about the hunters is our ability to dish out ungodly damage from distance, while being mobile and able to kite. So I will be playing MM, most likely Lone Wolf. This leaves without convenient snares, as I can't use my pet to slow the target (spider ability), nor the Exotic Ammunitions with frost ammo. So I'll have to rely on stuns and concussive shot to keep the distance. 

 

However, what I intend to be is a sort of specialist sniper. I very much miss this feeling Star Wars: The Old Republic. If there's one thing that game did right it's the battlegrounds, they're loads of fun on any level. So when I played Sniper there, I pretty much just hung back, and killed everyone I wanted from distance, while they were distracted by my allies. This will only work in battlegrounds, though.

 

In arena lot of factors will stack against MM: constant need to move, so no mastery uptime, long casts as only means of dealing damage, reliance on Lone Wolf to keep the damage high, which makes us sacrifice a lot of utility. That's why most will want to run BM. 

 

For BM, blinking strikes and adaptation will probably be go-to talents, and as always we'll want to run crit and mastery. I don't think BM PvP style will differ a lot from what we've seen in MoP.

So I had a lot of PvP after leveling up, I did Ashran at least once a day, but only been to a couple battlegrounds. Here's what I've noticed so far:

 

1) It's extremely easy to get entry level gear. Where previously gearing up would mean two tedious weeks of battlegrounds where you're a liability to your team, now you can get only in a few days, and you're just another face in the crowd.

 

In Ashran, when you loot bodies of killed players there's a chance to get a trophy, e.g. "troll's tusk". You can turn that trophy for a chest which contains a piece of PvP gear, and winning ashran first time in a week also grants a chest of better quality, which can contain honor or even conquest gear pieces. 

 

You can once for a character do a few Ashran zone quests, which grant 200-500 honor, and there are also PvP events. All in all, you gain honor and gear much faster. 

 

2) Consumables. There's a ton of consumables on Ashran, some of them drop from rares, others you can just loot from the grounds. Stuff like +15% all stats, 40% dmg reduction for 10 seconds, speed buffs, scrolls that summon NPC that help your faction, ancient artifact that triples the wielder's health and damage but drops on the ground if you're killed, etc.

 

Knowing where to get these consumables and using them is important. 

 

3) PvP itself. Everyone is extremely beefy. Burst damage classes are gone as a thing. Time where people would crit for third of your health is gone. For that reason, BM hunter seems to be the very strong, if not best class for PvP currently, because of unparalleled kiting ability, survival and huge utility kit.

Currently I'm using this spec:

 

15: Crouching Tiger, ...

 

This one is up for debate, but considering how overwhelmingly useful Deterrence is, I think this is the way to go. Freeing from snares is good, but we already have Master's Call for that, and I don't really feel the need for an extra root, while 10 second cooldown on Disengage is extremely useful. 

 

With everyone having so much health, you should be looking for sustain rather than burst, in all things, and short cooldown on Disengage helps with kiting very much, and - if you're good with your mouse - even pursuing the fleeing enemies. 

 

It's useful to know that Goblin Glider Kit can be used by everyone, even non-engineers, so Disengaging from the cliff into the Glider can take you really far, and help you catch an enemy or escape. 

 

30: Binding Shot

 

Seems to be the best choice, at least for non-arena PvP, because of the longest duration and multiple targets. Usually people don't even notice you put a Binding Shot on them, and get stunned. Notably, you don't have to actually hit enemies with the initial shot, everyone who passes through the marked area will get stunned. 

 

45: Spirit Bond

 

With everyone having so much health, having a passive and strong regeneration makes you very hard to kill. In decent gear, you can pretty much tank 1-2 DPSes on you, then disengage and just shrug off the damage. 

 

60: Thrill of the Hunt

 

The only realistic choice. Dire Beast will get kited forever, and you don't want to be stuck casting two low damage long casts to get better focus regen with Steady Focus.

 

75: Blink Strikes

 

I haven't given A Murder of Crows a fair chance, but from what I've seen it used on me, it doesn't do enough damage to be worthwhile. Stampede could potentially be a utility cooldown, but in PvP your pets will most likely get stuck in roots, freezes and stuns, and barely do any damage. 

 

Like I said, right now consistency > burst, and Blink Strikes is consistency, which also very useful for keeping your pet on target, which is doubly important for BM. 

 

90: Power Shot

 

I see so many hunters using Barrage in Ashran. It's funny how they think that AoE does anything in PvP.

 

Powershot is no longer as powerful, and does about half Kill Shot's damage, so not at all interesting from the standpoint of damage. But, the ability to knockback enemies is useful utility, while Glaive Toss merely offers a marginal increase in damage, and an additional slow.

 

Up to you. 

 

100: Adaptation

 

This talent solved so many problems with BM, where we had to choose between damage and utility, but not anymore - we all get a fat, damaging pet with Sacrificial Roar, which makes us even more beefy. 

 

As mail users, we get higher than average armor by default, combine that with steady stream of regen from Spirit Bond, Sacrificial Roar, double Deterrence, short cooldown Disengage, Master's Call and we're almost impossible to catch and kill. 

Importantly, you can use Sacrificial Roar even while stunned, so make sure to do that.

 

Make a macro for that, /cast [@player] Sacrificial Roar, and another one for Phoenix's Heart or whatever it's called. 

---

As for Glyphs, myself I use the one that allows me to always be stealthed in Camouflage, the Master's Call glyph for added survival and Disengage glyph to jump further away. 

---

Pet: I prefer to use Silithid, as it provides a stamina buff, making me even fatter, but more importantly a slow ability, so I can kite easier and let the pet stay on target more. 

 

Pet is mainly a preference thing, and I think any exotic pet will do nicely here.  Perhaps a healing reduction pet, or a Spirit Beast for an added heal, though I'm not sure how much it's worth right now.

      Realm: Thunderhorn / Wildhammer
      Laid back Heroic raiding
      Semi-serious PvP
      Raid days: 2 Days a week with a possible third if we're close to downing a boss.
      Website
      Discord - We use Discord as our main means of communication. Most of it through voice comms.
      Contact: PinkFap#2713
      Current recruitment needs:
      Mainly looking for 1 good tank, ranged DPS and healers of any class.
      For our most up-to-date recruitment needs please check our WoWProgress page.
      TL;DR:
      <SHP> Is looking for lost souls to join us in BFA. We're accepting both socials and people willing to take a serious(ish) approach to Heroic raiding and PvP. We're long-time friends and former hardcore raiders going as far back as Vanilla. We're going casual+ for BFA to enjoy ourselves better and play the game under our own more laid back rules. We're highly active both ingame as well as in our Discord channel. Most of all we're looking for like-minded people who enjoy doing stuff together.
      Full info:
      Wagwan blud,
      We are Shiny Happy People! A group of super duper fun, friendly and fun-loving friends who have known and played with each other for many years. We're a very diverse bunch. We have white Dutchman, white Englishman and white Vikingman. A more culturally diverse group you cannae havenae.
      While we play many different games, this recruitment ad' primary focus is on World of Warcraft. It is our 'main' game and it requires a bit more organization and has a slightly higher barrier to entry than some of the other games we play. However joining SHP means gaining entry to much fun being had with many good people across a wide variety of PC video games.
      Our guild was founded by a large group of rerollers in Warlords of Draenor shortly after the launch of the Hellfire Citadel patch. As the guild Movida we cleared HFC on Heroic in a timely manner and also had a short but fruitless stint in Mythic. Due to a lack of good recruits the guild fell apart and anyone with a grain of skill promptly fucked off for greener pastures.
      In comes SHP; A long-standing semi-small group of friends hell-bent on not really doing much or changing at all for the Battle For Azeroth expansion. We're a bunch of uncensored slackers trying to have some fun in this outdated piece of shit we still pay for on a monthly basis. We have been together for many years playing many different games but WoW was the love song that made us come together and continues to serenade us back in. All this means that SHP is built upon a rock solid foundation that will stand the test of time.
      Despite adopting the life of the casual we are by no means trash players. Some of us have played and raided since launch. Most of us have raided on a hardcore Heroic/Mythic level at some point in this game' lifespan. A lot of that raiding was even done together. But we've decided that Mythic simply is too stressful and too time consuming for a bunch of twenty-something-year-old single (mostly) men. I mean, some of us have oil night at the Chaps Cruising-Bar to go to!
      With that in mind we've decided we want to take things slow and enjoy WoW the way it was meant to be enjoyed; Barely. We will be a Heroic focused raiding guild, weaving in some semi-serious PvP to get rid of our toxic male hormones and to get some sweet transmogs and mounts. Raid days and times TBA. We have no strict attendance rules. Odds are you scrubs bring about as much to the table as an LFR hero and are thus easily replaced by a PUG anyway. We do ask that you let someone know if you can't make it to a raid you signed up for. Wether that is before raid start or 2 days after.
      If you think you have what it takes to play with us and then not report us then head to our website and drop an application or join our Discord and bother someone there. For questions or concerns you can contact me on my Bnet.
      Thank you for reading!

We have class leaders to help new or returning players get better acquainted with their specs! We also do PVP a lot as well as weekly raiding Friday/Saturday/Sunday!

We have an active Discord aswell! Join today and defend the Alliance.
