As a hunter, I will say that we are well positioned to be excellent FC's because of our varied and wonderful pet abilities, our speed with cheetah, and our traps, plus our tracking that enables easy avoidance of distant or hiding foes. Or I would say that if our best movement and defensive abilities (deterrance and disengage) weren't unusable in possession of a flag, our speed boost a deathtrap in its own right, our CC spotty when attempting precision trapping in PvP, our armor negligible compared to other heavy-armor users, and the unparalleled evil that is the dead-zone. That said, hunters, it is your responsibility to escort the FC, protect her from all comers, sniff out the rogues (and yes, it is always rogues) and anticipate incoming enemies with your tracking. Don't just rely on track humanoids. Track beasts for druids, hunters and shamans, track demons for warlocks, track elementals for mages and shamans, track undead for death-knights, and never, ever, leave your house without track hidden. Use your traps to block obvious escape routes, chase down enemy FC's with your pet, learn to jump-disengage off cliffs if there's a friendly priest or mage handy, or you happen to be an engineer, it'll save your life. Also, there is nothing like seeing a weakened feral druid EFC halfway across the field before you disengage-parachute to him, scatter shot, and then unleash a volley from above. The other team will kill you for sure, but you can save a match that way. Useful hint for all trackers; if you are in or above the flag room, you can track inside the tunnel and fort. If you are inside the fortress's front room or in the tunnel, you can't track anything outside it.
