I actually didn't know that you could open all of your bags at once with Shift+B; I had to learn that one from those stupid loading screen tips after I'd already made it to Nothrend (about three months into the game on my first toon).Probably the *biggest* "..... I am such an idiot" move I ever made was on my Hunter, after it was already level 80! I was helping a guildie with a Coilfang Reserve run, targeting the tank's target and burning everything down individually. My guildie said "Just Volley down the trash; it'll be a lot faster". And I said "... what's that mean?"*slaps self repeatedly*I was a level 80 Hunter who didn't know about Volley!! Oh sure, I had picked it up and dutifully trained all the ranks, but the first time I saw it I thought "This is stupid; if my cat is tanking six mobs and I hit all of them at once, five of them are gonna peel off and kill me!"... so I just never put it on my bar and subsequently forgot it even existed.I've had a whole lot of "Huntard" moments in my WoW career, but that one probably takes the cake, heh.

One of my huntard moments also came at level 80. In HoS, a pug jokingly accused me of being a selfish hunter, using Aspect of the Cheetah and not sharing. Come to find out, Aspect of the Pact is *not* a talented BM ability. Who knew!?Yup...onto the toolbar it went.

Another Huntard moment.Back in vanilla WoW, at level 60 you got Tranq Shot. Well, I was just starting to raid, and my first run thru MC, we get to Magdamar fight. The RL calls out the tranq shot rotation, and pipe up,"Tranq Shot?" I then get whispers from the other hunters laughing their butts off, and the RL whispers, 'Are you kidding?" Safe to say, I got Tranq shot right after that.

I did precisely the same thing for the exact same reason. In my defense, pet AoE tanking was largely non-existent when I leveled my hunter.

@jimsWell, in your defense, Tranq shot is an ability that has very much a situational use. I've taken up the habit of trying it on every boss' "enrage" type abilities ever since DBm told me to tranq shot Jaraxxus. O_O Fortuntaely I ahd it in my action bars because I'm a sucker for having ALL abilties accessible. You never know...
