i'm new in playing PVP with my hunter (exactly i'm doing it since today ) and my girlfriend decided to play PVP with her ice mage, i considered to create a team with her.
I'm using your BM spec Garwulf (https://huntsmanslodge.com/5560.....-redux.htm) with a Core Hound (thanks for the useful guide(s) by the way ).
You are playing with a Ret Pala, so i'm curious about the opinion BM Hunter with ice mage.
I would appreciate any tips or hints =)
I think this could be a fun combo. I wouldn't have high expectations for it due to lack of hunter CC and sustained burst, but I could see some fun games happening with this combo.
As with any dual DPS team, the trick will be to make it a 2v1 within about 30-45 seconds. If you can sheep/trap the healer or other DPS, then deep-freeze and nuke the other teammate right at the start, then you could faceroll for awhile I would think. Mages are pretty tough right now, just make sure your girlfriend has a lot of resilience gear, as should you.
Unfortunately, I don't know enough about Mages to give you any real tips for the combo, but I think you're on the right track as far as spec and pet go. The Core Hound will be perfect for this combo, as you'll really need that extra damage.
You also both have damage immunities, which is key.
I say just try to coordinate your burst damage, try and CC the healer best as possible, make sure to use your Tranq Shot on teams with any sort of frost resist, and you could do alright.
Good luck with that.
