I must admit as a healer I am slightly nervous about taking hunters. It is unfortunate but their CC often leaves a lot to be desired and a stray mob that should have been trapped usually finds it's way to me and proceeds to beat me over the head with a mallet. Another favourite trick is that they over-dps and pull aggro from the tank then feign death often resulting in a very angry mob speedily heading in my direction. Indeed, the vast majority of the wipes I have experienced are due to dps classes not controlling their threat. Inexplicably they usually seem to blame the tank for not holding aggro. To all dps classes could I just say now that it is your job to moderate your threat in relation to the tank and not vice-versa. And another thing: please don't scream 'HEAL!!!' when you pull aggro. If you are not being healed then there is almost always a very good reason for it. Often it's because the healer knows that if he increases his healing output to save your sorry hide it will almost certainly mean that mob you were stupid enough to pull will make a bee-line for them.
