Getting Battle-Ready: More BM PvP notes

Hunter PvP in 4.0.1

This past weekend I finally felt ready to swallow some pride and go get my ass handed to me in some BGs. The result… I didn’t fare as bad as I thought I would. While I was by no means a “force” in the BGs, I didn’t feel like a punching bag either.

Although I’m still stumbling around trying to find my way, I feel like I’m headed in the right direction. The following are some tips and suggestions which I’d like to offer up, in hopes that they may help some of you overcome difficulties or trepidation. Albeit a humbling experience right now, competing in BGs is a great way to learn the 4.0.1 hunter and find out what your weaknesses are.

As I’ve mentioned, a lot of this info is subject to change in the coming weeks, but I’ll try to update as it does. In the meantime, these posts will be more like notes & progress reports, rather than guides.

Since the e-mail was fairly lengthy, I’ve broken it down and attacked each question or comment individually. My comments are immediately following the blockquotes.

Bow Down to the King

In a week that’s been rife with pet glitches, I recalled a screenshot my wife took a few months ago before a Heroic Old Kingdom run. After being summoned to the stone, King Krush reverted back to his original size for awhile before we entered the instance. If only… One of my readers posted some links to glorious screenshots of …

Loque’nahak Gets “Krush’ed” on the PTR

I did some DPS comparisons between Loque’nahak and King Krush on the Heroic Target Dummy in Darnassus. I figured the least populace Alliance city would be best, but let me tell ya… it’s still pretty difficult trying to find a dummy that no one else is beating on. I tried a few previous tests, but they all rendered inaccurate due …
