So I stopped playing wow almost 2.5 years ago and through a random craving downloaded it and thought id get back involved.
The problem is ive forgotten half of what I knew and the other half has changed!
First thing thats thrown me is no more mana, how does focus even work?
Ive lost all my talent tree setups so dont know which is the best way to go. Same for my pet.
Im on a new computer so have no macros or addons, whats best? Already missing auctioneer!
Any advice on general play? How to get the most out of the charachter now. How good are hunters? Are we pure DPS machines or are we weak? Is there a new super pet that I should get or is my old faithful cat ive had since day 1 going to be ok?
Would appreciate any answers to the above as well as any extra advice!

Rather then type it all out, I'll just point you to the information your looking for.
SSC: Welcome back.
Wow, alot has changed since you left - but once you settle in, you'll find that it really hasn't changed that much.
The best thing you can do right now is click on the link that Takkas gave you. Spend a couple hours reading there, and you'll right up to speed.
The weirdest thing for you will be the shift from mana to energy. But once you get to know it, you will come to appreciate it. It fits "us" way better than mana did. Besides, being more "physical" type damage dealers, it just makes more sense.
When you get leveled to 85, you are going to LOVE the fact that you never have to type "Hunter LF crap" anymore. Que for a dungeon, heroic dungeon, or a watered down 25 man raid and level your fishing, quest, or shop while you wait to be teleported into a group. That means faster gearing, faster experience, and much less wasted time.

Hi SSC, welcome (back?) to the Lodge.
While I will admit the WHO is a great place to re-learn about huntering again, I might just advise you to look into the top left hand corner of this very page, and hit the "Home" link.
This is THE VERY BEST site on the web for hunters. I know, I've checked them all!
When you press on the "Home" link you will be transported into the very heart of hunterdom.
(NO! I am not Garwulf with a psuedonym (or however it's sspelld!).
Look through the forums, look through the guides, but the bestest, most interesting way to learn everything you need to, is to roll a hunter! But I think I'm preaching to the choir, so sit back, don't worry, just do it!
