    Usually Hunters are on the "most wanted" list, since they can fill out many missing buffs and are ranged.

    Maybe they already had enough Hunters?

    There's no reason to bring more than one hunter

    90% of the Hunter population is very... slow, and thus they have a paranoid feeling that all of the hunters want to come will be the same.
    And why bring hunters when mages and warlocks burst down the God from the sky anyway?

    Hunters are a strong class atm, but I'm seeing a lot of them out there too - they seem to be kinda FotM.

    I've been having more issues getting runs on my frost dk (574 ilvl) than my hunter (~570 ilvl). Melee is not a good role to play atm.

    The issue I've tended to have with my hunter is so many higher ilvl hunters in the raid that the leader doesn't want to bring along more.

    I always main a hunter and tbh i have seen lots of hunters, any xpac. you lift a rock, a hunter. you queue for something, 1-2 hunters.
    Dunno, maybe ppl think its easy to play, just send pet and cobra shot, spending some focus once in a while...

    I only raid xrealm with pugs on my hunter, it's super hard to get into a decent group, I was never told I can't come because I was a hunter, unless the raid had 2 or more hunters already. Though when I get into a group I usually get told that "this hunter is not like the others" in a good way, so I guess there are more bad hunters than other classes, though this seems to be the case ever since vanilla :P, hence the nickname hunTARD

    There is a lot of hunter hating on my realm too, but I only see that as a great incentive and motivator to be better.

    Hunters most popular, followed by warrior > druid > paladin on EU servers.

    US servers it's hunter > paladin > druid > warrior.

    Of all the classes I would turn down to be honest a high ilvl hunter would be the first unless I knew them personally since there seems to be such a high population of under performing over geared hunters. I'd probably be more inclined to bring a 580 Shadow priest over a 580 hunter simply because I've rarely ran into a high ilvl shadow priest that didn't perform at least to what their ilvl indicates they should.

    Wonder what's that same ratio for characters that have killed garrosh normal. After all, hunter is probably best char for those who just enjoy casual side of game not to mention being one of most popular alt character.

    Indeed, most people play hunter alt because he can do a lot of things solo easier.
    Another reason why people play hunters is so they can collect pets, at least that's what I gathered from all the "can we tame XX in next expansion" and "can you add YY as tameable pet" tweets.

    Hunters are also the only 'unique' class gameplay wise, I mean the playstyle.
    The reason why there are a lot of bad hunters, is because how easy they are to play on amature level, you can basicly just click one button and stuff dies in seconds, even less things you need to click if you play beast master, as pet does majority of damage, easy to watch a movie while farming.

    As the RDPS Officer/Recruiter for our Guild, I can say that Shadow Priests that actually manage to press Mind Blast on CD can't be found. We've had several apply who have avg. Mind Blast CD around 12-16 second mark for single-target fights even(actual CD is 8s and you have some procs that reset it through talents).

    We haven't had a Shadow Priest in the guild for around 6 months or so because they are bad at playing.

    I've seen more bad Ferals, Ele Shamans and Warlocks than Hunters.

    The only raids I do outside my guild is flex 4 (bcoz those damn loom daggers have never dropped for me). And I've seen hunters with 560-570 ilvl doing 250k dps so yeah there are lots of slow hunters since a decent chunk of players are hunters. Not that there's too many things wrong with the class, its just that people cba to hit stuff on cd :S

    I did 250k on juggs with 556, pulled 285k+ on garrosh flex with 559 last week (got bracers last week to bump ilvl).
    When I got my AoTC as 556 we had warr 575 that I was outdpsing on Garry.

    I've seen a lot of 'bad' hunters in my day. I assume this is why the general populous doesn't want to pug one.

    Finding a good hunter is like finding a needle in a hay stack.

    When I joined my guild as a fresh-faced-2month-experience-hunter at 565 ilevel I expected to get DESTROYED by the guilds 3 570+ hunters.

    I did more dps then all 3 of them on in most of SoO. I just think it's a skill gap issue.

    Hunters can easily place top 3, EVERY time in any dps encounter.

    I have yet to find a jaw dropping warlock since my tenure in this game, besides one's I've seen on live streams.
