Well, I finally got talked into trying out some Arena the last couple of weeks. I had always avoided it, because I realized I was a really bad pvp'r and any duel I do, I always lose, lol probably from being a clicker and having to look at my action bars to see what I'm clicking. Well I started doing 2v2 with my son who also plays a hunter, I'm BM, and he's SV. I got to admit, it's been a blast, even after we've capped the points for the week, we keep playing for practice, and to try to get our ranking up. I have to say 2 hunter teams are awesome, more awesome if one of them aren't me, hahaha, But rest assured I am getting better, finally learning to run away, instead of going toe to toe, and trying to out dps the other player. (hint) not a good idea, that's why they invented kiting, and traps for us to get the H*&^% out of there!
We have been able to pwn most teams, except for shammy/warlocks, OUCH!!! tough couple. Heck even Pally's, Roques, Druids, Warriors haven't been too tough, and I can just hear it from those teams now, WHAT!!! we got beat by HUNTERS!!! WHAT!! WHAT!!!, lol,..ohhhh the satisfaction from all the Huntard trash talk.
I've been using Ghostcrawler, and HE IS AWESAUCE!!!, I never thought I'd let a crab step into the place of Skoll, but this lil guy is hard to see, he's never been killed, and when BW is on, he's completely invisible. Well we've won a little more than half of our matches, most of the loses, due to me being, a complete beginning noob, hesitant, and having mostly all pve gear still, and all blues at that.
So I'd like to know how you other hunters are spec"d, enchanted, gemmed, and best, or favorite pets for Arena, and is aspect of the fox any good for arena, cause I was thinking, kool, run away and keep shooting, but I hate to lose aspect of the hawk damage. Oh yea, so I was completely ecstatic to break 1200 in ranking, lol I swear I'm gonna learn how to jump shoot, or die trying....oh yea, been doing alot of that, lol.

I am running with a three's team now with my son and a co-worker. of course me as BM hunter son is a shammy and my co-worker is a Druid as heals. we do fairly well we don't win them all but seeing improvement. Basically i still suck (LOL). My son and i were dueling the other day trying different pets and such. tried ghostcrawler did ok but could be better. tried spider not good at all for me atleast. then tried Samba. tore him down in half the time and actually won the duel i was stoked. i also tried using loque but it seems that samba was the best for me. 7 duels and and one with a win. woot i was excited. i have only beaten my son once on any of his toons even some of them that were llower level. My son and i were talking about me possibly changing specs to try and improve our three's team but he finnally told me today quit worrying about and stay BM you like it the best anyway. so hoppefully i can just improve my skills instead of specs. lol pray for me i need it trust me. improvement comes slow with this ol man. lol
Oh yeaa, hahaha, I know your pain, for some reason my kids kick my A%* all the time. I tried a 3v3 a few times, thought I'd move up, and maybe it would be easier, cause it wouldn't be so opponent focused, but we couldn't win any of those, 3v3 was a total fail for me, but that still comes back to learning a whole new way to play my toon. Playing a real thinking person, who wants to destroy you, is definitely not like doing a Raid. I figured Hey!!! I'm pretty good at downing those big bad Bosses in these raids, arena should be a piece of cake, hahaha. Yeaaaa not the same, lol
