"10. On that note, is it just me, or are pugged hunters a lot better on average than they used to be?"A *lot* of ink, digital and otherwise, has been spilled specifically to help newbie hunters not be That Guy in low-level random dungeon groups, to the very great benefit of all.

Yeah I've found that "huntards" are not so "tard" anymore. It was a nice change.

I have never been a "huntard" with my hunter, pretty much because I knew of the stereotype before I started leveling and did everything I needed to do (still do with all my toons) to make sure I was the exception to the "rule"

Huntard have come along way since BC, but the Deathnoobs.....at least we have Monktards to look forward to next xpac.

I must be unlucky - hunters, followed by mages and death knights, are still the worst offenders for lower-level instance aggravation for me. If I need a second to think about the next pull it's "lucky" for me hunters can't be bothered waiting and they make the choice for me.

As I HAVE 3 hunters at 85 that I have researched to death, Hunters are the one group I will yell at in low level dungeons when I run them. Not for low DPS or anything silly like that that doesn't matter at low levels. I'm talking about running without pets, meleeing, needing on Intellect items and/or having them equipped, or pulling. Nothing frustrates me more than a Hunter that can't be bothered to learn even the basics. The first time will get them a nicely phrased bit of constructive criticism. Repeat offensive tends to get me extremely angry.

I thought it was just me, but yeah. These days, having a hunter show up in the group actually feels comforting, rather than worrying.

Well see, unless a hunter specs their pet into taunt, pets have no taunt. Growl can no longer keep up with threat generation of a tank and it's not a true taunt.I'm still saddened by tanks that think growl is a taunt. I'm also still saddened how the rest of the group can pull mobs off the tank except the one the pet is attacking, and it's still the hunters' fault if growl is found to be on.At least this hasn't been happening as much as it did when the threat changes first went active and I stopped turning growl off.

Well, that huntard today didn't get that memo..Pulled the fat troll infront of Moorabis room while we were beating the mobs inside, wrote "pulled the troll" and ran back in the water.As the healer I was like "wtf get back in line of sight for heals or better yet disengage into the tank".That was worse than the moonkin spamming hurricane and announcing that he needs a mana break.
