Matthew, I don't know if you're still reading the comments or not. I can't be bothered to sort through the ranting to see what's been said and what hasn't, so I may be repeating something. But, just in case...If you would like to learn to play your hunter "properly," may I make a suggestion? Level a mage. Not necessarily all the way to max level, but for a while. Learn to kite on the mages. Then, come back to the hunter and identify the skills that could help you kite and, while you're at it, grab zhuntermod (or something similar) so you can track when your autoshots will go off.I say this as someone who's first 60 (before TBC) was a hunter, who's second 70 was a hunter, who has more hunters at various levels than she wants to think about, but who didn't learn to kite on her hunter until she played a mage. It didn't really "click" for me until I was such a squishy class that really needed to kite. Suddenly, I understood the importance, and I found myself kiting on my hunter without really realizing I was doing it. "Crap, it's close, where's wing clip?" Now, with ZHunterMod allowing me to pause my strafe just in time for an autoshot to fire, I don't need to bother with jumpshots to kite mobs effectively.At this point, I have at least one level 50 of each class. My "strongest" classes are the hunter, druid, and warlock. My "weakest" are rogues and warriors. I am adjusting my talents and gear to my playstyle, and my playstyle to my talents and gear, on those two classes, and they are becoming less of a chore for me. Still, the lack of heals on either bothers me.
