Just to let you know a bit about my background (before you judge) I have been playing for roughly 5 years (I started mid-BC because I was simply very young before that) & I have seen many changes at the hunter class. Ive always been fine with them tho, as I got to experience most specs and got to know all of them. During WotLK I've had the chance to be a hardcore raider, and was in a top 150 US guild for quite a while and saw many heroic end bosses go down. Since then, I've been PvP'ing and I am currently in the 2100-ish level (3s) and 1900 (2s). As you figured -- nothing too amazing, but I think that im what you could call a "hardcore casual". Now, if many players relate to my history of playing, you may be able to understand what's below:
We have a fuckload of keybinds. I never realized it, actually, because every time I had to do my bars & binds I just added one here, and one there. But as I was making characters on the arena realm yesterday, I realize: "Holy crap, I have lots of buttons and things to worry about". Now, as it is not exactly the case, I'm reffering to back then, a couple years ago. Now, I have like 5 bars of 12 buttons each filled with macros, cooldowns, and whatnot, and I'm at the point where I use "funky" keybinds such as alt+mouseclick+Q or something. I got used to it, I like complicated actually, because when done right it gives you an edge over other players who don't bother with it. It is easy for me to imagine a fresh level 90, who dings it for the first time, (new player) and tries to get in PvP. He'll be lucky if he wins 5 times out of 50 by self-learning how to use his arsenal.
Even tho I'm fine with it, is anybody else deep inside thinking "I wish I had less buttons to press and worry about", such as in BC or even Wrath? I've never played vanilla during vanilla, but it can probably also apply.
