Lookback: Patch 0.9


The Hunter Class is now available to test! Hunters track, tame, and slay all manner of animals and beasts found in the wild. Whether they rely on bows or firearms, Hunters consider their weapons and pets to be their only true friends. Races allowed to become Hunters are the Night Elf, Dwarf, Orc, Tauren, and Troll.
(More after the link, some interesting stuff, like hunters with shields and FDing rogues)

Hunters are great for pulling monsters as they are able to set traps that hinder monsters that the Hunters pull to attack. Hunters are also able to use various beast-related special abilities, take on bestial traits that give them supernatural powers, control and tame beasts, and use a wide variety of ranged attacks complimented by a few melee abilities.

Hunters are closely related to their pets and must remember to always keep their pet’s happiness in mind. When using a pet, Hunters will notice an icon in the top left corner of their screen that depicts their pet’s happiness. The more Hunters use their pets, the lower their pet’s level of happiness will become. Hunters should always remember to feed their pets to raise their pet’s level of happiness or worry about their pet abandoning them or even attacking the Hunter! Hunters are also the only class able to name their pets.

The Hunter can use the following weapons: Axes, Daggers, Guns or Bows, Crossbows (with training), Fist Weapons (with training), Spears (with training), Staves (with training), Swords, (with training), Thrown (with training), Two-Handed Axes (with training), Two-Handed Swords (with training). The Hunter can use the following armor: Cloth, Leather, Shields, and Mail (at level 40, with training).

God, it was a long time ago. For some reason things like this sound very interesting to me, so excuse me for posting this if you are not into this kind of stuff. Also it’s an other notable thing that our beloved Feign Death ability was belonged to Rogues until patch 0.6, then Druids took it until Hunters were introduced. Also, rogues and hunters could use Bucklers (similar to shields). Imagine it nowadays, running around with a shield and shooting everyone in the face, while blocking melee attacks and mitigating damage with double armor…

  1. Wow. That must have been… different. I’m a WotLK baby, but maybe someday I’ll be able to go, I remember back when we hunters used Mana as a resource’. lol. I love the way you look back on WoW, not in purely pro con way, or all statistical, but as a person who loves and cares about our hunter class.


  2. Have you ever considered writing an e-book or guest authoring on other

    sites? I have a blog based upon on the same information you

    discuss and would really like to have you share some stories/information.
    I know my subscribers would enjoy your work. If you’re even remotely interested, feel free to

    send me an email.


  3. I’m really loving the theme/design of your weblog. Do you ever run into any

    web browser compatibility issues? A handful of my blog visitors have complained about my site not working correctly

    in Explorer but looks great in Chrome. Do you have any ideas to help fix this issue?
