Mage or hunter? (read it meow!)
Return to board index
Hello fellow homosapians! I am Kalastrear. My first 85 was a shaman and i got boa and leveled two other people, i have come back to shaman and he is 87 right now. but should i level my hunter or my mage first? both are 25 and both are super fun. Which one can get me more gold at 90? (i am super poor so this is important to me) I love both but i dont like it when people say i am a huntard. My shaman is fun but he keeps getting ganked in Karasang wilds so imma wait to level him. Mage or hunter? my hunter is orc and my mage is pandaren.
Well, I find that a hunter is extremely easy to solo old content and farm rares with, which is a nice source of gold. Pets avoidance ability make them excellent tanks for bosses that do a lot of AOE damage, and stampede is nice to pop right before mind control effects because it takes the focus off of you and keeps the mobs/boss busy. Being able to shoot while moving is also very convenient when farming large numbers of low level mobs, and being able to AOE on the move is even better. And I find camouflage to be much easier to use to get past pointless trash than invis is when farming. Also specific classes don't really have any benefit for specific professions, except for druids being able to pick herbs in bird form and fly away.
In terms of being called a "huntard," I have had a hunter main for years, and have leveled hunter alts on other servers form 30-50, and I can't remember being called a huntard. I have seen it used in the general forums sometimes, but people don't run around just calling hunters that in game- lol
I'd agree. Hunter is very easy for soloing content. It might be my warlockian bias against mages talking, though. ;)
I only remember one person in randoms call my hunter a huntard. It wasn't maliciously, though. So I didn't mind it. I've probably done much more stupid stuff on my warlock. But if you do mess up, just own it and apologize and I don't think you'll have much of a "huntard" problem.
My answer hasn't changed from the last time (6 days ago) that you couldn't decide between Shaman, Druid or Hunter. Assign a number to each, roll a die.
Hunters and huntards are not synonymous.
All huntards are hunters, not all hunters are huntards.
There are definitely those in game. When a hunter gets impatient and MDs the next LFR boss onto the main tank when the heals are out of the room, then he/she becomes a huntard. And will likely be called such.
If you don't like being called a huntard, then don't be one! Not saying you are, but I rarely see the term thrown around without reason.
It's kinda like a Paladerp.
I love both but i dont like it when people say i am a huntard.
You occasionally get called a Retardin just for being a Ret Pally too. It's just a stupid stigma that means nothing, and only children use—so don't play with children and everything's cool. That said, I've only been called a Retardin a handful of times in the past four years. I love playing Ret!
Anyway, if you like Hunters I wouldn't let that be a reason to stop you. Mages kick Butt. But I prefer Huntards... I mean Hunters. :P

They were before MoP... But they broke something since then, maybe the removal of talent trees did it, but my tank pet use to have at least 75K more health than my hunter, now they're equal, also he gets hit with crits quite often (use to be a talent to remove that, like tanks had)
I soloed things like Ulduar, part of ICC, VoA (the 3 boss achieve) but since then...they're much harder hitting on my pet, I get hit quite often now since he dies :(
As someone with only 3 toons at 90, Hunter, Mage, Monk I say Hunter no questions asked. He will be able to solo the many rares that spawn in pandaria which can lead to more gold, and he is just soo much easier to level. My mage was brutal levelling. The monk was the easiest of them all though thanks to the trip he takes for the rep and exp buff.
I say Hunter all the way, but if gold is the number one thing you are concerned about you should be taking professions into account and you aren't even mentioning them. Some are much more lucrative than others...
should i level my hunter or my mage first?
I play both classes and find both of them equally fun, and there is no real difference in class when it comes to obtaining gold. To get gold, do dailies, sell all grey items you pick up to vendor and sell as much tings as you can on the AH (and don't shop on the AH unless necessary). To get really rich you would need to play the AH (i.e. shop things cheap and sell them for a high price), although that requires you to keep track of prices (using an auctioneer addon), that you have some basic understanding of math/economy and knowledge of what each item is used for and how hard it is to come by.
To choose which one you want to level, I would recommend you do as ofLegends suggested and play 5 levels alternating for each and then choose the one you fall in love with first.

While they have changed a lot and made it slightly harder to solo content as hunter, I disagree with that they broken. I've been able to solo things just as well as previously, although with some modifications. I sometimes need to respecc BM to boost my pet (and to use an exotic one with higher stats) and I cannot solo everything using a dps specced pet anymore (i.e. make sure your pet is in tank specc before soloing). If you want to boost your soloing further, I recommend that you also switch to one or more of the following glyphs (depending on situation):
