My primary goal here at HuntsmansLodge has always been to help others. I began the site with the intention of sharing all of the hunter knowledge I had stored between my pointy elven ears, so that others wouldn’t have to spend countless hours outside the game researching just to be decent at it.
Well, nearly two years have passed since the doors of HuntsmansLodge first opened and not much has changed. I’m still trying to write helpful articles, respond to comments and questions with the utmost of care, and I still take a sincere interest in the betterment of other hunters.
I’m pleased to announce a new series of guides that I plan to roll out over the coming weeks, entitled, “GarsNotes”. The scope of the guides will be to focus on some of the core mechanics of the hunter class, but without all of the theorycraft and various bloat. I’ll leave the maths and trivial debates up to the OCD theorycrafters. GarsNotes will tell you everything you need to know and nothing you don’t. They’re a cut to the chase series of guides as it were.
After having wandered around in the dark playing DK and duRid, kidding myself that there are other classes worth playing apart from hunters, I realized that it can be a chore trying to find current, useful and relevant information for noobs. With that in mind, I’m going to try and create a series of guides that any noob hunter can use as a blueprint for success. Not only that, but players will be able to get up to speed in record time without having to sift through page upon page, forum after forum, and site after site trying to find the valuable information.
I’m not so much into helping the top DPSers raise there numbers on Recount as I am in helping those struggling to learn the class. The top guns out there have plenty of sites they can refer to in order to boost their DeePS by .0187%. I’d rather help the guy in spell power gear who is struggling to beat the tank. 😉
For my first entry in this series I’ve decided to focus on the most basic of the basics… Stats. I’ve created a guide to hunter stats, outlining which stats you need and why, along with some other bits of useful info. Let me know what you think. 🙂
Lastly, special thanks to Wayne T. for providing such conscientious feedback, and to Blaquespell for writing such kick-ass Pally guides. Blaq’s introductory guides have really prompted me to re-evaluate ad re-focus. After all… we were all noobs once. Heck, the jury’s still out on me. 😉
Click on the link above to read the first volume in the series of GarsNotes. I hope the info contained within will help some of you to understand the complexities and intricacies involved with the finest class in all of Azeroth. 😉
