Regarding melee hunters.. yes, the thought is laughable to most.But, with abilities like Wing Clip, Raptor Strike, and Disengage, do you not need to keep your weapon skill at least close to the cap to even have these abilities connect?Every time my hunter went from 1h to 2h, to axe, to polearm, etc, I had to intentionally get in there and spam Wingclip just to get my skill up so I could reliably use it in a crisis.

Max weapon skill is important. Jousting with Wing Clip while kiting a mob or in PvP is damn important. Raptor Strike when you have no choice but to be in melee range so you're not just being a waste of space (Eagle Boss - ZA, Shade of Aran - Flame Wreath, PvP friggin' mages). There are also times where you're expected to melee a little - thinking of Kael'thas when Hunters are on Mind Control removal duty or kiting mobs to NPCs in Hyjal.Best place to level weapons is to go out to Shadowmoon Valley to one of the Elemental broken (the banished ones where you have to kill 3 elemental totems to unleash them). Just swing away to your heart's content and you'll level up in no time.A warning though... have a movie, audio book, or TV show on because 348 to 350 is going to take at least 45 minutes. It took longer for me, but I honestly was trying not to keep track.
