    How useful are hunters?

    Many may think that hunters are fail class because they can only dps and their dps is lower than that of other classes. What I want to prove here is that hunters can sometimes be very useful despite their lower dps.

    1) PVE (raiding)
    -shooting a boss from a distance of 41 yard range with the misdirection skill cast on the tank makes the boss go strait for the tank, making hunters the best pullers in the game;
    -misdirection used on the tank during the boss fight increases threat on tank, allowing dps-ers to dps harder and to worry less about pulling aggro;
    -trueshot aura gives 10% AP which means additional dps to melee classes and other hunters;
    -aspect of the wild gives a nature resistance aura that can be useful when fighting certain bosses such Grob;
    -distracting shot gives a burst of threat to the hunter (it's not quite the same as a taunt coz sometimes it's not enough to pull aggro) allowing you try and save a player that has pulled aggro (I used this a few times to knowingly sacrifice myself in order to save a healer and buy some time for the rest of the raid to regroup so a wipe can be avoided). To help buy a few extra seconds in the case I just mentioned, you can use deterrence that is pretty much a 5 second divine shield (gives 100% parry chance, 100% that ranged attacks will miss you and 100% spell deflection);

    2)PVP(arena)
    Clearly not the best option for an arena team, but it could still kick some ass;

    3)PVP(world encounters and battlegrounds)
    -with track humanoids on you can't be taken by surprise if you keep your eyes open;
    -probably worst enemy of a rogue because of the flare and hunter's mark skills;
    -excellent for finishing off running foes with various skills and kill shot as "the cherry from the top of the cake" :D

    agreed, hunters have some unique skills that help in raids, the "useless class" came cause private servers always have missdirection bug, one of the best boss pulling skills.

    i don`t have playtime with hunters since TBC, but i found lot of fun doing pvp and pve with hulkye (hunter)
