So I have been playing pretty much forever, but I have not really played hunter at level cap ever before. I have always played Melee classes but where I live now the lag just sucks for PvPing with melee. Hunter is the ranged class I like the best, I'm not a big fan of pets but I hate having to hard cast way more, so hunter it is.
I have also been gone for the last 6 months or so, so a lot of stuff is really new to me.
SO I thought I'd come her and ask for some advice about playing Hunter. I have started reading various guides and such and will continue to do so so here I'm really looking for things I might not see in the guides.
Some background on my playstyle... These days I mostly like to BG but I'll dig into PvE somewhat. Long ago I was a hardcore raider but I just don't have the patience for all the guild raiding drama so PvE wise LFR is probably going to be as much as I do. Not a huge fan of Arena, but I like rated BG when I can find a team. Like I said I don't play hardcore any more but I still like to perform the best I can even in random BG and LFR, it's just a personal pride in my performance thing.
What should I be doing as soon as I hit lvl cap? Any good tips on PvP tactics/tricks? I'm playing BM now mostly because I like my spirit beasts but I think they might not be the best pvp pets so I'm not married to that spec. Any favorite macros or addons you can't live without?
Thanks in advance for your help.
