I have been tanking forever and just recently decided to try my first dps class. I rolled a rogue, mage, and hunter all to 30 and decided the hunter was just my favorite. Coming from a tank to a hunter was a transition that made me appreciate good hunters and mages that much more. I have found that I can quickly jump spin/disengage -> FD once mob chases me into the tank aoe spam to quickly bring any stray aggro back to me. Heck, I have even saved overzealous mages / healers who grab aggro this way by distracting shot first. I also don't understand why more hunters don't use their CC skills more proactively. Trap launcher plus ice trap on top of the healer saves them. Quick wyvern sting on a mob running around like crazy.. You aren't doing it to CC perse, just doing it to prevent the mob from running around like crazy, therebye giving the tank a few more seconds to grab it.And for the love of everything. Tanks, STOP PULLING THE MOB PACK OUT OF MY FIRE TRAP!!!! The hunter aoe fire trap looks like bad stuff, and I was guilty of it until I played a hunter, but it's a vital part of hunter aoe dps now that we don't have volley!
