World of Warcraft Hunters Demystified

Nov 7, 2007
Hunters live to preserve the balance with the creatures of the wild. They venture into the wilderness to find an animal companion to defend and help them on their travels. These adept marksmen are unmatched in their skill with firearms and archery. Many races in the game venerate this skill. For the taurens, the great hunt is central to their culture and skilled hunters are honored above all others. The orcs have always shared a natural relationship with the rough land and the creatures of the wild. The trolls share a similar relationship with the wilds as the taurens do.

The night elves have forever shared a unusual bond with nature and its creatures. The dwarves of khaz modan have never been strangers of nature, living in the rugged, ice crested mountains of the iron kings. Famous hunters include all high elven rangers like alleria windrunner and her two sisters vereesa and sylvanas and also the night elves, such as shandris feathermoon.

Hunters primarily use ranged weapons such as guns and bows to cause damage. Their ability to tame beasts allows them to use their pets in battle. The abilities their pet has depends on its sub-type. The hunter has several tracking abilities. These abilities allow the hunter to see on the minimap all creatures of the type being tracked as a gold circle with a red center. Some types available to track include beasts, humanoids, elementals, demons and undead.

The hunter also has special enhancements called aspects. These allow the player to passively improve their skills or talents by taking on bestial traits from animals. For example, Aspect of the Cheetah increases movement speed and Aspect of the Monkey increases dodge chance. There are also aspects that benefit the entire party, such as Aspect of the Pack, which increases movement speed for everyone in the party. Hunters can also lay traps.

Some of their effects including freezing enemies and slowing them down. One of the few downsides to these aspects, is that only one aspect can be activated at a time. For example, if you already have aspect of the monkey casted on yourself, and you cast aspect of the cheetah, aspect of the monkey will fade and aspect of the cheetah will replace it. Hunters can also mark a target, which increases the ranged attack power (and melee attack power, if upgraded with a talent) of those who attack it and places a red arrow above its head.
