    Got my hunter full epic in 2 days, did all the raids in LFR, was very fun. :D

    Also got the bow from Illidan in first try, Amani War Bear, of the Nightfall title + Black Drake mount.

    Tomorrow everything gets reset woohoo, then i'm off to raiding again and hopefully now T15/T16 will drop, i mostly got new weapon and stupid bags with gold instead of gear.

    What I tend to do is just go with how I feel. If I wish to level up as fast as possible I always hit the next zone as soon as it becomes available but at the same time if I know that I'm about to hit a zone that I'm not too keen on, I'll quest a bit longer in the previous zones so that I can completely bypass the zone I don't like. I've just done this on my Tauren as I spent more time in Terokkar and Nagrand so that I could skip Blade's Edge Mountains and go straight to Netherstorm for 67-68. Next time I'm levelling an alt I might rush through the early zones and do Blade's Edge and Shadowmoon Valley instead.

    The complaint that some players have of outlevelling a zone too soon is VERY valid and I agree with it but at the same time I dont mind working with it in the way I've just described as I feel it adds variety to low level questing. Should I really wish to do the majority of quests in each zone on a single character I can always come back to it at max level if I ever decide to go for the Loremaster achievement.

    Hunter is one of my favourite classes, I just never end up playing mine that much because theres always a billion of them around so raid spots used to be tough to get in guild raids ( different deal nowadays with the dungeon/raid finder ). My hunter's MM spec and kicks plenty of ass in the Timeless Isle even early on unlike many of my other characters that I've levelled. With the mage I've had the absolute worst time and that class has been the biggest anti-climax of the expansion for me.

    I used to love my Mage in Cata, awesome fun doing frost pvp but now the class just feels a bit too fiddly and in PvE, especially on the Timeless Isle a fresh, solo mage is gonna have tougher time then some other classes like Pala or Hunter soloing stuff.

    How lucky aren't you :eek:
    I got my hunter to full epic in one day...by giving him a lot of Timeless Armor pieces :D In LFR I've gotten a few things which is nice. Now trying to get enough for SoO LFR. Think he's ilvl 495.

    Btw I dont know if any of you guys play on a PvP server but what do you think about the new X-realm world system? I dusted off my lvl 80 rogue and flew to Mount Hyjal to start questing. Got ganked 6 times within 30min -.- So I logged off and sprinkled the dust back on him.

    Yo, if any of you guys have better than netherweave bags, go on and gift me some, running out of slots in the bank. Or I'll buy them off you, would rather pay you gold than to some randoms on the AH.

    don't have the mats for those, yet. I've been leveling my leatherworking to get rid of some leather from the bank, I didn't have a single slot free lol, now I've freed some up by using those leathers up. Still could do with some 20+ slot bags though. They're just quite expensive. Although I do have some gold now, 2k ish and growing. Will probably invest in some bags when I have 5k or so.

    It's pretty easy, i did all raids without an issue as ranged DPS.

    I use Deadly Boss Mods addon, it helps alot.

    LFR is free loot, it's near impossible not to clear any given scenario. I'd recommend getting yourself into a proper guild that is actually doing the content in at least normal mode, it's not super difficult and there's tons that only raid once or twice a week. There's a vast difference and frankly it's a lot more fun.

    I wouldn't say free loot, it's still a challenge for some people.

    I've ran into some bosses that we're pretty hard still, like that dino boss, we downed him after third of fourth try.

    You also run into people that do a little over or below 50K dps wich can be a problem.

    Each time you fail you get a stacking buff. As long as people stick around the boss will die eventually, it's free loot. You could auto-attack while on the phone for a full boss fight and walk away with purple. I know people that have done it. It's a terrible learning enviroment to be honest, great for gearing up for other content easily but definitely not necessary.

    It's all about luck with da dropz

    If executed properly it's very easy but some encounters do involve some brain activity besides just pushing 2,3,4 on the keyboard. And pretty much everyone will say that they have been in a LFR which wipes over and over again due to stupid mistakes. The problem is that as a single individual, it's hard to set 24 other players on the right track or to make a big difference.

    hmmm...

    Anyway, servers went back up after a couple of minutes. Gonna hit 73 and then bed. Loving the game still.

    EDIT: ding dong, 74 :)

    still loving the game! I'm kinda taking it slow atm, work is too much!!! but I'll be aiming to hit 85 by the end of next week. It's funny how finding the right class/build completely transforms a game. I LOVE playing this hunter. I could tolerate my frost mage and hated my DK. but this hunter bird... She's amazing!
