This is my 2nd entry in the 30 days of WarCraft series of articles.
Hmmm… favorite class… well, I guess that would be… Ta Da..! Hunter.
I chose to roll a hunter for a few reasons…
First off… the pets are what sold me. I loved the idea of taming a companion who would assist me on my adventures.
I liked the idea of being primarily a ranged class, yet still having a few abilities for close quarters combat. Of course, hunters had a couple more melee options five years ago, and I had mistakenly thought hunters could be somewhat viable in melee range.
I liked that hunters wore mail and weren’t as squishy as the other ranged classes.
Hunter seemed like the obvious choice for solo play, which was perfect for me. Plus, even though I figured I’d be playing solo most of the time, I knew I wouldn’t be alone because I’d always have my trusty pet. 🙂
The original cinematic was really what clinched it for me though. Seeing the dwarf with his musket and charging bear… I thought, now that’s the class I want to play! Bear was my second choice, however. My fist choice for a pet was… you guessed it… wolf.
I’ll likely elaborate on this post a bit more – tomorrow perhaps – but for now I mainly just wanted to throw up a quick answer so I can maintain my post-a-day-for-30-days routine.
