Scattered Shots: Hunter mailbag Q&A {WoW}

Mar 24th 2011 9:18AM
Just to throw another monkeywrench into the "best spec" conversation-there's evidence to suggest that in 10 mans, SV might trump MM, at least on average. This is probably due to a missing buff or two more commonly available during 25s. I know this has proven the case in my own experience-I lose about 2k dps switching to MM, even on fairly static fights like Argaloth.

More detailed info here:

Undercutting is part of the AH game, get over it. Usually when I undercut for that little, it's because the profit margin is slim as hell. If you don't like it, farm your own mats, level your own professions, or camp your own drops.

Oh yes, the tanks who don't understand trap launching and then yell at you =P This has gotten a little better now that more people are used to cc, but still....

and a big HELL YES to no. 6. I can almost forgiven the naive teenager using "gay" because all his friends do, and he doesn't know better. But it's extremely rare that anyone ever calls them on it =P You'd think with all the publicity gay bullying has gotten, adults would be at least a bit more aware. Even worse, direct confrontation often results in a defensive answer and even getting kicked from a group =/

I usually end up making a snarky comment about "wow, I didn't know [xyz] had a sexual orientation". I dunno if it stops them long term, or makes them think....but it usually shuts them up for the rest of the run, at least.

Or flagging and standing/swimming on your fishing bobber-usually with a friend nearby waiting. Used to happen frequently when the fishing daily was in Sholozar, for some reason...

Yeah, that whole "huntard" thing needs to die a quick yet painful death. Yeah, there are stupid hunters, but every class has a wealth of stupid players.

This is a BIG one for me. Nothing I hate more than standing ON TOP of the freakin' node, fighting the mob that attacked me, and having someone swoop in and grab it. CC helps when the mobs are on uberspawn mode, but's just rude.

I don't think there are twelve yet, but there's WHU (baby hunters), DHS (alts), and then a bunch of profession guilds- alch/herb, skinning/lw, etc. I believe there are five profession guilds, but I don't remember off the top of my head.

Gold Capped: Casual auctioneering {WoW}

I think part of it is just holding on to anything that sells, and selling it. This is where having a bank toon is so handy. Get a couple frostweave from that dungeon? Send it to your bank toon. When your bank toon has a stack, throw it up on the AH. Cloth, health/mana potions, well itemized greens, extra enchanting mats, white tradeskill items...almost all of these will sell-and they don't have to be lvl 80 endgame stuff. I find the lower level stuff often sells for proportionally higher prices.

Yeah, 100 builds on 50.

Max out reps with mounts first, those are the easiest-factions, Kurenai, Skyguard, Netherstorm, Cenarion expedition, Sons of hodir, Wyrmrest Accord. Do the Argent Tourney dailies for the badges (13 mounts there, I believe). PvP mounts just got stupidly easy to get, 50k honor each. There are a few purchasable mounts, too.

Other than that, the rest are drops. Bronze and Blue drakes are pretty easy to get. I organized an AQ40 raid for the bug mounts from there. I've got 255 Baron Rivendare kills trying to get the deathcharger (no luck), I've fished up about 15k fish n things trying to get the sea turtle (again no luck). I found just keeping at it, being aware of where mounts drop and focusing on it slowly, I eventually got there.

Wowwiki had a good overall list.
