1 - You are absolutely out of your mind to put points into Imp AotH for leveling. The longer your pet survives, the longer the Hunter survives, particularly since "Feign Death" does not become available until Level 30. Points should go into pet stamina and armor, pet damage and healing. Further, you don't even explain why you're recommending Imp Hawk.2 - Scare Beast? That's a situational PvP ability, at best.3 - Mangeclaw is not a rare pet, it is a rare skin for the level. Mangeclaw is on a very short respawn timer because he needs to be killed for "A Pilot's Revenge." It's the skin that is rare at the level, but it is not a rare skin in general since half the Hunters in Northrend have a bear with the white skin.4 - You did not mention that Hunters can dual wield at 20, which dramatically increases their weapon selection. It might also be a good time to explain the mechanics of Raptor and Mongoose and why a 2-hander is slightly better if they end up having to actually melee (which low-level hunters are often required to do).How to macro aspect-switching would be useful so leveling hunters can pop in-and-out of AotH and AotC while leveling, since they'll be doing a lot of running around. Pet control is also extremely important, and they should be learning to gather more than one mob with their pet, macroing pet attack and Hunter's Mark, using Omen or another threat-meter, and other items that are practical for leveling and good skills to hone for group work at higher levels. Leveling is about learning your class, so they should be developing these skills.Some good stuff in here though, particularly the consolidated list of recommended quest lines. However, I'd like to see a paragraph dedicated to the first two tiers of all the talent trees, since this is where they're going to be making big choices.
