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.

      Hey hunters! 

      I used to play hunter back in the old days (Max level 80), and now starting with the game again. Therefore starting to gather some research before making my character (Yea thats my thing). First of all im a raider, love doing that, therefore want to master a spec there can give me a spot on the raid teams. I passionated in the spec BM for a while, but have a hard time to chose, as my research came across Survival. Survival look pretty strong at the moment, when i look at characters as Nnoggah. So i want the hear some of the more experience guys in here, how is BM doing compared to Survival, is it lacking behind or is it doing better if played right? 

      Hope to hear some opinions. PS i know typical question here, but as a person i just like to get all facts gather before starting something.
      Kind regards - TeemoTeemo

      The 97th Tavern Brawl is called 'An Ancient Recipe' and it offers players the chance to try out Journey to Un'Goro decks.
      The rules of this Brawl are simple: you choose a hero and you get a premade deck with the Un'Goro deck recipe for that class. The deck archetypes are the following and we even have guides for most of them:
      Quest Druid Dinomancer Hunter Elemental Mage (guide for almost identical deck here) Quest Paladin Quest Priest Quest Rogue Elemental Shaman Quest Warlock Quest Warrior All deck recipes have pretty good winning chances. This is a nice chance to play with cards you don't own and get to know the new Hearthstone expansion better.
