When it comes to playing a Hunter, don’t do it just because they get to train animals throughout the game. There is a lot more to a Hunter’s pet than just looking cool. So, here are the basics of the Hunter’s pet that you should know about before you head into the game and start playing one… or two.
When it comes to leveling machines, Hunters are one of the best in the game. It is extremely easy to level with a hunter, which is also why there are tons of them in the World of Warcraft. This makes it hard to find a group sometimes, so be prepared if you want to play a hunter. Although Hunters are one of the most prevalent classes in the game, there are some basics that you should know before you choose one. Most players head into playing a Hunter blindly because they have heard that it is really easy to level with one. So, to enlighten you before you head off into Hunter-Land, here are some of the main basics about playing this class that you should know.
A Hunter is not the only class in the game that has pets. There are actually six different classes that allow you to have pets, some starting from level two and others at level ten (such as the Hunter). The six classes are: Hunter, Warlock (summonable minions), Mages (summonable water elementals), Druids (force of nature talent), Shamans (elemental summonings), and Priests (Shadowfiend). While the Warlock is most like the Hunter in the fact that they can control most things about their pets, the Hunter has a more intimate relationship with their animal. Hunters are the only class in the game that can name their pets as they see fit. But, they must also feed their pets and if their pet dies, they have to resurrect it.
The Hunter class is mainly a damage dealer, but a ranged damage dealer. Hunters rely on their pets to add to the damage that they can do and to help keep the mob distracted so that they can deal their ranged damage. One of the great things about playing a Hunter is the pet, and it helps for any player to know that their pet can be used in many different ways. A Hunter has many other abilities that help them throughout the game as well, such as tracking beasts and great buffs. But their pets are the best thing that they could use to move through the game with ease.
Hunters can tame just about any of the wild beasts that are found in the game, and then train them to fight with all of the other skills that they have learned. Since Hunter’s rely heavily on their pets to do damage and move through the game, there are advantages to taming different types of wild animals throughout the game so that you can learn different skills that different animals possess. So, while playing a Hunter, you need to make sure that you tame as many different types of animals as possible so that you can gain all of the great skills.
Now that you know the basics of the Hunter’s pet in the game, you should be better equipped to use your pet effectively and to level throughout the game faster! Happy Hunting!
