Dec 10th 2007 11:21PM Agreed on Raptor. At 40 my BElf Hunter got a purple chicken... but I decided that if I was going to drop nearly 600g on an epic mount, it would be the raptor. It is not so easy to get to exalted with Darkspear. It took me till 63 or 64 running down every last troll rep quest I could, not to mention more runecloth than I can count.
I still keep my chicken in the bank though, in case I help a lower level guildie, so that we are near the same speed.
Nov 14th 2007 1:22PM The new hunter pet behavior that makes it try to get behind the target causes some problems. I was in both SM and Blood Furnace last night and if I sent my pet to attack a mob that was standing with it's back to a wall, Dash would activate and my cat would aim itself at the mob... and do nothing. I would have to shoot it and as it came running towards me, THEN my pet would attack.
I adapted to it relatively quickly, but it needs changing so that if the pet can't get behind the mob it attacks from the front. Perhaps that wil be addressed in the maintenence this morning.
Nov 9th 2007 6:01PM Chances are if your main is a crappy huntard or retnoob (or other stereotype) it's because you aren't taking the time to learn about your class and game mechanics. That will translate into your alts. All the Class stereotypes we throw around are basically permutations of the same issue: bad players. We all start out bad, but the ones that stay that way are the ones that make the stereotypes continue to exisist.

It takes a bit of use to really understand it's benefits but I got it right after 2.2 went live and my main was at 62. I have since reached 70 and been able to buy gear for all my toons, epic ground mount, regular flying mount, and am currently saving for a netherdrake. I also have a bank full of mats for various professions for my guild and will likely pay for one of their level 40 mounts.
Oct 24th 2007 3:40PM Seems like it's a hold over from pen & paper RPGs...
Wizards could only use daggers, but they had their magic to make up for it.
Paladins and Clerics couldn't use edged weapons at all, something about it being a conflict of interest with their healing.
Thieves couldn't wield big weapons that would make sneaking around difficult.
