With The Burning Crusade, the World of Warcraft Classic team at Blizzard made several significant changes to the hunters. Not only does the class no longer have to deal with a dead zone where it cannot attack opponents, but it has also received key additions and changes that increase their effectiveness. Hunters in particular can set traps during combat and are able to use Misdirection to unload a threat on a tank.
However, one of the accessories that most hunters want to know about is new pets. In TB, pet statistics are graded based on the percentage of your hunter’s statistics, so they make up a significant portion of your DPS. Keeping them alive and choosing the right one is very important if you want to quickly overcome the damage charts and compensate for them.
Hunters are as good as a solo class, mainly due to their pets. To balance, look for pets that will quickly get into a fight. That means finding one with Charge, Dash or Dive. Pet families, such as boars, wolves and cats, work well here. But many players like to deal with the Wind Serpent because they attack out of range, which means they are in a fight much faster than other pets. They also have the possibility of solid damage during a raid, making them a pet that you can easily take when you make a jump.
If you are looking for the best pet in its class for raid content, look no further than Ravager. They are able to learn both Gore and Bite, which are two of the best abilities for harming pets. In addition, you can use the new Go for the Throat talent to increase your Focus generation to maximize Gore’s uptime. Other pets that fit the account include the Cat and Raptor families. They do not completely interfere with the damage numbers that Ravager does, but they are a viable alternative as long as you do not care about the min / max of your statistics.
Scropids are go-to pets for hunters who want to test their courage in the arena. They have a unique ability called Scorpid Poison, which damages over time and can be folded up to five times. Deployment on the opponent is crucial for every hunter for a successful match in the arena. It constantly forces them to deal with damage, even if you do not actively hit them with your attacks.
Fortunately, players can store several pets in their stable, allowing you to switch as the situation requires. We recommend getting Wind Serpent, Ravager and Scorpid to be ready for anything to come. Then fill the other areas with any pets you like. This should prepare you to download any content you want.
