Im the same, i have a warlock, warrior, and druid level 70 but my hunter is the first character i ever made and hes stuck at 50. Its not that its hard to level, i just get bored of it too easily. And also whenever I pick him up to play all i ever see while leveling is hunter bots running around and it makes me sad to play the class, so i give up.

Same here too. Hunter was my first to 60. Now i have 4 70s and my hunter is only 65. I'm levelling a 49 shaman and a 44 mage right now. Oh well.

My first toon was a hunter as well. Could NOT get her past 26. No idea why. I feel your pain.My main now is a warlock. She hit 70 a couple of weeks ago. It was a struggle to get to 40 with her, but the class just grew on me and I have to say she's my favorite.I started a rogue a few months ago but can't seem to get up the energy to get her to 20. I started a rogue with the purpose of eventually taking revenge for all the times I've been ganked by rogues. But, like with the hunter, I'm not getting the hang of the class.I guess it all comes down to whether or not you're a (insert class here) person. Like anything in life, some people can rock a particular talent, some are mediocre and others just can't do it.

Its called multi-tag and bag. My hunter is leveling faster than my other 70s, and I dont even quest that much. Grab a tanking pet, like a boar, and learn how to grab multiple mobs at once and hold agro.

yep, what xtole said. make it a goal to never be killing one mob at a time - when i was questing on my hunter i often grabbed two or 3 mobs, trapped one, kited one, and pet-tanked another.hunters are much less visceral than warriors - you lose that feeling of hitting an enemy like a heavily-armed linebacker. there is joy to be found in playing a hunter, though, i promise.

Nick S nailed it on the head: Visceral. Hunters (and all ranged DPS) lack the visceral appeal of a lot of other classes. My 70s are, in general, all about the visceral fun of it: Enhancement Shaman (Elemental? yawn), Feral Druid (Laserchickens are okay, but ranged? meh.), Prot Pally (killing 15 things at once ROCKS!). Only my Warlock is a pet class, but he's not nearly as much raw fun as the melee toons. Oh, two healers, too... but those are for grouping, not for raw fun.I tried my hand at Mages... and they bored me to tears. Hunters, also, are generally dull... mine languishes at 60. Still, maybe they would be more fun if I fought as above... trying to always be fighting 3+ baddies. That sounds like it's worth trying.Still, "in yer face" toons are much more satisfying. That's what your problem is with Hunters, Mr. Rossi.
