Getting bored of BG's....frustrated as well especially when I start kicking a DK's teeth in and then 2 or 3 more DK's or Ret Pally's come to help my enemy who is on the verge of dying btw and I get my face caved in. I don't know I would like to step up my PvP play and bg's just aren't cutting it so I thought I would try something new.
i always wanted to know the answer to this, i am interested to know this theory, usualy fast arena matches are the best ones, is this a newb idea or wat cause it hought hunter and rogue with stuns intimidation bestial wrath haste pots everything, burning others down be4 heals, what do u guys think?
Hunters are pretty squishy in arena, so having a plate wearing partner who can also stun, heal, bubble and do crazy damage is a definite plus. Ret Pally ftw here.
An Elemenental Shaman can provide perhaps a little more burst due to Heroism, as well as a bit of healing and some cc, but I still like a Ret personally.
I doubt Hunter/Rogue would be able to even break 10. The only way I could see this combo possibly working is if the Hunter was a NE and used a cat, starting every match stealthed. Even thet it would be pretty gimmicky and not very competitive. Hunters are a first kill priority in arena, so you're opponents are going to be all over your s**t if you don't have someone to get out there and disrupt them.
Having zero heals is a problem too with that combo. Not to mention, it only takes about 3 seconds to nuke down a Rogue once they're unstealthed.
I would go with a Feral Druid before a Rogue anyday if doing 2s as BM.
Normally a Hunter is at its best with a Shaman, Priest or a Paladin... but as a BM hunter you shouldn't count Priest as an option if you don't wanna try BM + Shadow, hehe. But I agree with Garwulf, if you wanna play as a BM hunter you should stick with another DPS because BM hunters works best in a double DPS combo. Retri Paladins or Elemental Shamans are best for this cause. BM + Retri got very good burst and is not that common in arena so people often underestimate this combo and is caught of guard seeing as they probably won't realise that quick what to do. BM + Elemental Shaman also works due to the fact that you got good DPS from both, but Elemental shamans heal quite well actually, adding heroism to do this makes it even more nasty.
The best partner for a BM hunter is a Ret Pally. Platinum Disks/wings will rape anyone not wearing tank gear.
Me and my partner use BM/Ret and we usually go 10-4, i remember our best record was 15-0. But dont run MB with a healer for 2's. it doesnt have the shutdown capability, run it double dps or Beest Cleeve in 3's.
