Hello hunters,

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.

      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!!!!

      I have a few questions concerning the upcoming expansion:
      First I wanted to ask, how everything with legendarys and artefacts is now going to be, are there still gonna be legendarys with the same role as in Legion and what about artefacts, are the HoA armors the new artefacts ?
       
      Furthermore I wanted to know wheter or not pvp is mandatory for warfronts and island plundering or if you don't need to be a top pvp player to still achieve some nice things and interesting rewards.
       
      With warfronts I also wanted to enquire how the gameplay most likely will look like, they are pve events so you shouldn't need to be a pvp player, right ?
      Also one last question, how hard do you think the warfront rewards will be to get ? The transmog does look quite nice and I wanted to ask if it is gonna be something, that is going to be locked and only available to hardcore players

      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

      The clock is ticking ladies and gentlemen.  In these dark hours we are fighting off Armageddon on a dozen fronts. It is easy to be weary and it is easy to forget purpose.
      My name is Reverend John Hagee and I am the seventh son of the seventh son. 
      I have come to bring you a holy message engraved upon my very soul by the light. Evil exists; it is has been recorded in the books of history. Written in the blood of our families who have died fighting the unholy horde. We cannot hide from this evil, it has shaped us.  It has become part of who we are.  My grandfather fell fighting at the dark portal in the first war and my father fell fighting the undead in Stratholme. My family has served the light with a fiery faith for generations.  And I know one day the light will see fit to call me home from the field of battle and so shall my sons take up the holy banners of the alliance and meet the cowardly horde on the fields of battle. 
      Arthas tried to consume our world with his undead masses.  Deathwing shattered the very grounds of Azeroth.  The Iron Horde tried to accomplish when the Azerothian horde have always been too weak to do, annihilate us all. We are living in age of enemies. There is the savage inhuman orc that drank of the demon’s blood before invading and slaughtering our kin.  The forsaken whose souls are so twisted they no longer feel the light, who are led by the banshee queen who soul is owed to the old god Yogg Saron. The once great tauren, an old race that is supposed to guardian nature yet allies itself with corruptions of nature!  The trolls who so readily excepted the horde..who have been the enemies of humans and elves alike for more than an age. We are living in age of enemies. Surrounded and attacked on all sides.
      I have served the light all my long and weary life.  I have come to the conclusion that while we idolize its ideals we have missed its personification that dwells amongst us.  Surely, the night elf goddess Elune is the very manifestation of the light we worship.  Elune is herself is a goddess of the light, shining on us and guiding us in the dark hours.  How many times has her power been manifest when we need it the most? How many wounds mended by the night elf sisters that serve Elune?  Is it not she who cleansed the soul of the fallen dragon aspect Ysera?  The dreamer who had been our ally for countless fights fallen by the legion but cleansed by the might of Elune!
      If we accept Elune as the lights will incarnate, then you must accept that the Night Elves have a sacred place within our faith. We must provide support to this conflict for they are Elune’s chosen people.  What we do for them, we do for ourselves. They are a race brought into existence by Elune, blessed by Elune.
      In Ashenvale the horde rears its head, destroying the sacred forests of Night Elves.  It is an ever-growing struggle between our allies, the forces of good and the horde, the corrupting darkness that consumes our world.  In the bellies of Warsong Gultch the great evil of our time struggles against our persecuted brethren, the Silverwing Sentinels.  If there is one thing I can make clear it is that Elune has chosen the Night Elves as her people and we have chosen ourselves to be there allies. To the savage horde know this, we shall meet you on the fields of battle and you shall know the power of a mighty god.  We will be the tool that smites you and washes your stain from this land.  We shall condemn you to the ravaging maw of the twisting nether. I call all those who serve the light to answer the needy call of the Night Elves. Alliance, I call on you.
       
       
       
      For the advocates of peace remember this, to see evil and call it anything other than evil, is to be evil.
       
       
      Okay, probably bad rp attempt aside, <warsong ministries> is looking to build some twink teams.  I ran a 19 guild called <I found the flag honest> prior to the separation of the brackets and only recently discovered twinking was viable again.  I personally run 19s, 60s, and am working on a 99.  I have a few other 60s and 19s in guild but would like to expand.  If you have a homeless twink or want to build one, please consider rolling on Khaz Modan or Azjol nerub and joining us.  Any bracket welcome as well as mains.  I will help you get set up in any bracket to the best of my ability. catch me in game under Johnhagee, historical, absolution, moonseed, or undying. or just add the battletag omega#1452
       
      This Alliance will disintegrate if we do not come together and drive away the demons, whatever form they take.
