Hello, I'm going to play a hunter and I will get him some BOA gear. But I don't know what would be the best these are which I'm thinking about :
For shoulders:Stained Shadowcraft Spaulders
orChampion Herod's Shoulders
For chest:Stained Shadowcraft Tunic
orChampion's Deathdealer Breastplate
and which weapon should i choose?
I want the ones with I can do the most dps Because I'm going to powerlevel to 80 as fast as possible.

- Hit is nice.
- Can be used for other alts.
- No int.
- No hit.
- Int means more mana, that converts to AP once you pick up Careful Aim
Overall mail will be faster, but leather will be useful for a feral or rogue as well.

Third option can be the PvP heirloom shoulders from Wintergrasp. I usually have more stone keeper shards than I know what to do with. While leveling the loss of the other stats hasn't been a big deal (have the equivalent in leather for my druid), so these can be a cheap alternative at 200 stone keeper shards.

as for Weapons, remember that you can't Dual Wield until level 20
choice of 2H weps are:Two-Handed Axe
(Stone Keeper's Shards)
Note the 2-hand Mace is not useable and both Staffs are useless with Spell Power.
EIther the Axe or Sword will work well enough below 20, especially below 10 before you get the pet.
It's a good choice for that timeframe if you will also use it for a Paladin, Warrior or DK.
Preference for enchant would be for +25 Agility while the Hunter has it, versus Crusader as typical best for the plate wearers.
Past 20 it will be MUCH better to pick up a pair of swords or daggers and enchant them with +15 Agility:PvE Sword
- PvP Sword
- PvE Dagger
- PvP Dagger
Note the Maces are not useable on a Hunter
Which of those you pick really depends on which of Emblems, Marks or Shards to spend more of, and if you want to run BGs while leveling or not.
My preference is for the PvE Dagger and Sword, which would also be great for a Rogue.
As for the Bow
, racial bonuses apply of course.
The Bow has better stats but the Gun would also allow you to use Engineer Crafted ammo with more damage than standard ammo
Either can also be used on a Warrior or Rogue.
Oh and all 3 trinkets are pretty useful on a Hunter, with preference for the Mana & Health regen trinkets over the PvP trinket, but not really needed.
