The state of hunters at the time of the poll: Here

At the time of this poll the Class Choice Thread had 555 votes for hunter - a number prior to the big drama about "your class is not bugged".

The "Yes" choices were separated into both PvE and PvP options because I felt that some of the "not bugs" would hardly affect PvE only hunters, though I am sure there are PvE server hunters that wanted a few battlegrounds too.

Interested to hear everyone's thoughts either way, whether it's your reason for not rerolling or if it's about what drew you to choosing the new class over hunter.

NOTE: If your main wasn't going to be a hunter anyway just choose the 2nd option.

Edit: I added the blank vote, but for some reason it did not reset the poll. Instead it kept all places the same, so I had to remove the PvE server votes and switch to blank (there were too many options to simply add another). There were 5 stay votes inside PvE at the time so barring those people not re-voting just factor them into the "Yes I am staying" vote.

Should've made a "blank" vote so us "non hunter mains" can see poll result

Where's the "Yes: *insert non-Hunter class*" option?

Anything but hunter is a good selection.

The votes aren't locked + I am out of slots for options so it's fine if someone marks what they are thinking about rolling now and come back to change their selection later.

I am specifically interested in what they are thinking about rolling even if they are undecided (top pick). A "Yes: Undecided" option would probably get most of the votes and not provide enough interesting info.

For instance the only class with healing that has been picked so far is Druid. Likely because it has a lot of the "do it yourself solo stuff" vibe that some liked about Hunter, but Priest, Paladin, and Shaman aren't getting picked. This leads me to believe those Druids are feral and not heal specced.

It won't be my main, but I wasn't planning on a hunter being my main in the first place. It will be my 1st or 2nd alt, though.

Honorable mention for Teebling who got off this boat before it even started sinking.

I stayed on that boat until it hit the bottom of the sea...

This just reinforces the value of having played on private I guess. I'll hold those hunter memories close to my heart! Glad I got to experience playing hunter when it was a king. I've come to terms with putting the class to rest and moving on.

Out of respect, I will likely keep hunter as my chosen class until Classic, just in case... please? maybe? it might work out?... no. No. I'm just being unreasonable.

Private was especially nice that with the constant "FRESH" other people gladly rerolled to make Hunters king again over and over.

I wasn't really sure what you were asking.

So basically, you're asking people who wanted to main Hunter whether or not they will keep maining hunter on a PvP or a PvE server or whether they've switched to another class. I didn't quite get it the first time around so I thought you were asking if people who were rolling other classes were interested in rerolling or something.

It's been pretty steady that roughly 2/3rds of voting hunters are rerolling. Of course, there are going to be people out there who have no idea what happened to hunters and roll one on release anyway so I am not expecting those in the know to make too much of a dent. There will be hunters for raids at least.

I had a hunter alt back in the day and I will definitely have another. He was my herb/ore farmer. Pretty sure he can still do those things 😉

So you guys are saying that I should probably re-consider maining a hunter for Classic and choose another class instead?
Was it really that terrible during the beta test? I've read some negative comments here and there but didn't realize it was THAT bad...

For me Hunter is the ultimate class for enjoying WoW, taking it easy and exploring the world.
