To add to this before downplaying the hunter "off spec" [Survival]- Misdirection + Readiness is good as well for when mobs / bosses wipe agro tables. - Expose Weakness which is ALL attackers regardless of group. Guess it's all how you see it. Though I expect not too long following this response to see noob this and that, but frankly I have had some outstanding experiences with Hunters in the melee DPS position so long as you weed out the Huntards in favor of a real Hunter.Then again the same can be said for just about every class I suppose.*shrugs*

and to clarify before someone gets stupid, I am referring to the article term of melee group.

I certainly was not trying to imply Hunters are not worthwhile in a raid. They are very, very good to have. The only point I was trying to make is that their direct buffs to the Physical DPS group are not as strong as the direct buffs other classes supply. This makes them the best candidate to be a floater- not being directly in the Physical DPS group, but still an essential member of the raid.If your raid composition allows your Hunters to be in this group, that's fantastic! A lot of compositions don't, however. It all depends on your raid.Do Hunters have utility? Absolutely. A ton of it, even. It just isn't the sort of utility they need to be in the 5-man physical DPS group in your raid to make the most out of it.
