Mushan: The hunter is my favorite class in World of Warcraft.
After hitting 90 about eleven days ago, I started right away on the dailies for Golden Lotus, Klaxxi, The Anglers and The Tillers. Some of these quests can get hairy, particularly in areas – like The Golden Stair – where you can find yourself mobbed by swarms of little bastards, or snuck up on by a Marauder and an Effigy (or the Behemoth) with no notice.
This is a theme that isn’t unfamiliar; in expansion content in particular, chances are you’re going to find yourself in chaotic, “oh shit!” situations. If it’s a new expansion and things are respawning at a high rate, your quest to ‘kill 30 swarmers’ can turn into “I had to kill 86 swarmers!” or “I f@%king died because I got mobbed by like a thousand swarmers!”
I experienced these types of situations a lot while leveling, and continue to do so at times while doing dailies. However, since Mists of Pandaria launched, I have died only one time (excluding dungeons), and that was when I accidentally rode off the edge of Kota Peak at 88 when I took a turn too wide while riding back down the mountain. It was a long, long… splat.
Other than that, though, I think that being a hunter served me extremely well as I slew and slaughtered my way to 90. . . . read full article
