Hunter Class Overview
Azeroth is home to a wide variety of beasts. From the new world of Lordaeron to the old world of Kalimdor, all manner of creatures can be found. Some are friendly, some are ferocious and aggressive - yet they all have one thing in common. Each creature shares a special connection with Hunters. Hunters track, tame and slay all manner of animals and beasts found in the wilds. Whether they rely on bows or firearms, Hunters consider their weapons and pets to be their only true friends.
Races for Hunters
Hunters have 3 talent specializations: Beast Mastery, Marksmanship, and Survival.
- Beast Mastery — This talent tree revolves around the special relationship a Hunter forms with their pets, increasing their damage and utility.
- Marksmanship — Just as a pet is important to a Hunter, so is their weapon. Marksmanship revolves around increasing the damage a Hunter can deal with their chosen ranged weapon.
- Survival — A good Hunter can spend days in the wild chasing their prey and Survival maximises their ability to do so, enhancing their survivability, trap, and melee abilities.
Resources as a Hunter
The primary resource used by Hunters is Mana in all specializations.
