Dec 1st 2011 5:48PM I just finished leveling my hunter and started gearing it. I found Anhka with some luck and decided I'd keep using BM for now, because as long as my pet's alive I could do pretty decent dps. Since I am just recently gearing it and I am not patient enough to make a lot of money real quick with professions I wait to enchant my gear until I know I will use it for a while. So like half of my gear is still unenchanted and ungemmed.
Now yesterday I was doing some random new 5-mans to get to the valor cap and I was in a group with solely hunter dps (it was a premade group) and I got called a noob before we even started: "OMG YOU ARE BM, lol n00b!". Anyway I decided to stay in the group and ignored him. I managed to out-dps the other hunters with about 5k more while having slightly worse gear, and that felt awesome.
Anyway the moral of this story is: it seems that hunters are quite balanced now, I might be able to do some more with MM or SV, but I doubt it will make a huge difference. The only big problem is that when your pet dies, your DPS is halved. And the other moral is, don't judge people by their spec, wait 'till you see them in action and then you can judge. :)

Feb 27th 2010 3:01PM You know what's even worse... in the European store they just changed the $ to €, (and 25 euros is around 35 dollars) so it's 40% more expensive here!
