Well, reading the posts, I decided to start one for hunters. Of course, Adonfanna is the only PC I have to date, now level 20, and rocking along.
Love the class...nothing bad to say...
My routine with my sole pet, a tiger is as follows (and I see a lot misuse the pet in my opinion)
Set down a fire trap just out of arrow range
creep forward to ensure you only get one mob
fire concussion to slow down
pull back to trap - fire poison
fire main arrow / click on pet attack
fire split arrow or poison as needed
Mob is on you by the 3rd/4th arrow
Wing the bastard
melee/wing with the beast ripping from behind.
Easy to solo up to 3 levels above...4 levels will require some rest...can usually do up to 2 three levels higher and survive if I'm lucky.
I don't send the pet out till the mob is close...allows me to wing the creature AND keeps the pet from pulling other downrange mobs.
Love the class...and works great in groups with the beast helping out priests, and range being a killer option with arrows. No massive damage...on a crit, will hit 104 or something...but I can work it well.
What else have you all found?
