Oct 17th 2008 12:50PM Steady Shot, as well as Multi and Arcane, will also automatically pick a target if you don't have one when you cast them now, so spamming a macro as a mob dies can mean accidental pulls unless you're careful. Not that a hunter ever pulls anything by accident, amirite? ;)
Mar 13th 2008 9:17PM A really fantastic article next would be about managing aggro in groups. Many beginning hunters don't even use Feign Death, much less understand how it can be used preemptively to prevent pulling aggro off the tank rather than after the fact. Also, everyone knows the horror stories about bad hunters feigning and dumping the mob onto the healer... If new hunters had the logic behind aggro explained to them, it could be very helpful.

Nice beginner article on hunters, great tip on the kiting. :) I find the emphasis on two-handed weapons a bit unnecessary though; it won't make that much of a difference in your first ten levels and may mislead some new hunters into continuing to use two-handed weapons when it will soon be better to dual-wield. But to each their own, everyone has their own quirks.
I suggest explaining how the new tracking coloration works since tracking is one of the most significant things about being a hunter.
Feb 3rd 2008 8:59PM Your comment about hunters wasn't completely accurate. Certainly our Arcane Shots aren't limited by the GCD, it's on a 6-second cooldown. :) However, where this would be of interest to hunters is our Steady Shot rotation. For Marksman and Survival hunters who weave in shots after Steady finishes but before Auto goes off, having the GCD up sooner would mean less clipping. However, even for Beastmastery hunters, having the GCD influenced by haste would give more opportunity to stack haste on quick-firing weapons.
Jan 29th 2008 7:07AM I have a shaman friend who thought of an inventive way to switch from RP to PvP gear without breaking character... He switches to ghost wolf form, swaps equipment, and shifts back out. Ready to dish out some pain without stripping in front of anyone!
