Dear god...

For some reason, there's a dearth of decent hunters on my server.

One of the more annoying alliance guilds is recruiting a "dps" hunter. This guild sucks in so many ways, and are on my KOS list. Still... they pvp, which is more than I can say about my guild...

Anyway, they posted to the realm forum, and here, in a nutshell, is a truly huntard response. BRK might get a kick outta this...

"The requirement to compete DPS wise needs to be held in light to the classes we are competing against. I understand that hunters join a party to perform a DPS roll, but i don't feel as a hunter thats our strongest strength. Especially with high lvl mages and rogues. I think the hunters main strength is the ranged pull and aggro control. Aggro control is like crowd control only it doesn't take the mob out of the equation but direct the mob to where you want it. You have a single target off-tank with pet, misdirection, frost trap, and scatter shot all used to stop a mob from attacking casters. The ability to wear mail just makes us able to take a few beating while those skills are on cool down. Thats our one true strength. The secound thing I think a hunter is good for is a short duration of massive single target DPS (i wish the aoe traps and volley were a bit better) but for around 15sec I can boost my DPS by an additional 150. I throw traps down I click trinkets, rapid fire, i go all out and if it turns out being a wipe I'm happy knowing I took a large part of the adds out before going. The rest as a hybrid class just makes us a jack of all trades. which means a hunters real role is support. to support the master of that trade. Have the hunter support the DPSer's have the Hunter support the guy killing adds, if we were shamans we would support healers. hunters boost a party over all. thats my 2 cents in what one should look for in a hunter."
