No rogue will open up on your pet

The good thing about hunter though is that their meant to be independent, so I dont plan to do alot of premades.. I'll probablly just shadowmeld camp in high-traffic areas, and let the rogue open up stealth when they attack my pet (from which I can cc and kite them all day long). In this way Night Elf Hunters are the best for "setting the table" in how a fight starts (as most rogues will take the bait, I think)..

okay so you will not earn enough Ranks to compete with others in PvP so you have to raid the max tier set that is available at that time. Also not a single Rogue will ever open stealth on your pet. shadowmeld is not the same as a full stealth.

i think you should maybe play a bit on a private server. There or some instant lvl 60 pvp focused one because i think with your mind set you will have a hard time in Classic.
I just want to help you so you do not get frustrated with the hunter on lvl 60.

Yeah I plan to raid with a guild for the teir sets, and also get the devilsour armor (I think that's what it's called).. And I should be be good in BG aswell should I need to rank up to get the bloodseeker crossbow..... I think a private server my ruin my WoW classic experience, so im shy away from that..

(check this guy out, he makes hunter PvP look really fun; I like how he showdowmelds out of danger)

Hunter is not the strongest PvP Class at all. Just my 2 cent, find out on yourself why 😉

Edit: Sry, I dont wanna sound rude or something, but Hunter is okey in some situations, but PvP changed a lot in the last 10 years in Classic. Every Class is viable....

This is a really strange thread. OP is theory crafting while never ever played the game, that is... strange.

I also find it funny that you will shadowmeld at a location (say Hunter’s camp in STV) all day for the occasional ganking. Sure, could be fun some time but sounds like you’re building your whole PvP career and theory crafting on this...?

Would be interesting to hear what spec you’re planning?

Personally I’ve played several classes, hunter in Vanilla being one of them.

I don't recollect a single time when Horde players were bitching specifically about Alliance Hunters in Vanilla. If anything, they were bitching about Alliance Paladins.

The two people on YouTube that I use as my goto source of WoW Classic information, are Kargoz and Punkrat... These are vets in the game who've
been playing for years, and both seem to like Hunter the most.. So there has to be something about this class that's OP... I hope so lol..

Lol yeah cause I need to multi-task studying and playing, and so for me some sort of invisibility is a must... I dont want to go rogue asI dont want to compete with the billion other rogues for legendary gear... And as for specs I basically using the following as my guideline (jump to 13:50) except im putting 5 into 'concussive shot' and 5 into 'aspect of the hawk', and not putting any points into 'revive pet' (not sure where to allocate those points yet)..

I orginally wanted to make a Hunter to counter Horde Rogues.... So im heavily reconsidering playing as a Dwarf Hunter instead of a Night Elf, for Stoneform.. Then putting 5 points into 'Endurance Training' instead of 'Aspect of the Hawk' so that I have that extra health to survive the Rogue's first stun (Hamstring I think it's called), before I can use Stoneform to negate Blind.... But Shadowmelding looks fun, so decisions decisions...

That multitask camping strat will be hard without shadowmeld though. Also, you should know that raiding for gear might not work with BM spec so you might need a lot of respecs if you’re set on PvP:ing as BM.

^ Yeah im definitely going with Night Elf after I just found out that I can get a pet cat, that can stealth along with me.. Shadowmeld + Pets offers a whole new dynamic to the game that I think will give the most enjoyable experience overall... It seems you go dwarf hunter if you want 1v1s, or Night Elf if you want BG or wpvp... And also just realized there's the feign death -> shadowmeld -> food combo... And if I really wanted I could respec into dodge build to improve my chances vs rogues.

I having trouble findI having trouble finding the answer to this question as alot of links are about people's favorite weapons.. But im not looking for favorite weapons, as to me my favorite weapon is the one with the best stats.. With that said I found https://www.wowhead.com/item=22812/nerubian-slavemaker and https://www.wowhead.com/item=22811/soulstring but it says these are 'no longer avaliable'??? Are these the best bows, and will they be avaliable?? Thanks in advance!

Great that Kargoz and Punkrat are veterans, of course they know more because they make videos, or do they know better because of that?
I've been playing World of Warcraft for roughly mhmhm 15 years? And since mid Wotlk I have been playing on Private Classic Servers.
I've never seen a Hunter that was extraordinarily good or made my faction's life hard, I've always played Horde. I've always done at least rank10 on any server, so that means I've done a lot of PvP.
There are hunters who like to play well, but there are also magicians who just play well. And every class has a counter, as does the Hunter.
The best example is eigtl. Henhouse, I've duelled with so many different classes against Hunter and yes you win and you lose, but I've never met a Hunter who has 100% wins.

just my 2 cents.
