I came back to the game from a 2 year break recently, and I wanted to play the only classe ( except monk ) that I never played before, a Hunter.
It's been a very fun 4 weeks to level to 90, but now I want to pvp. The problem is... I'm used to play hybrid classes mostly, like shaman / priest, classes that can heal themselves. I even played warrior, rogue, druid and mage in my 5 years in WoW. All those classes have some kind of healing abilities / healing passive... Hunters doesnt seem to have any of that if im not mistaken.
I get that hunters are supposed to have big damage output, I guess its offense is its defense, but now as a fresh 90 I feel helpless against any classes that has DoTs. BGs seems to be filled with shadowpriest/lock these days, and it feels like they just tab dot everyone... As a hunter, you cant really just reduce the DoT effect on your health by healing yourself, or just use a reduce/absorb incomming damage with a CD, cause we dont have any. Well there's Deterance, but it doesnt last that long and you cant do anything while using it..
so my question is : How do you guys deal with classes that are DoT heavy?
I guess the obvious answer is "roll with a healer lol", but the friend im playing with is an Ele shaman.
Thx for any imput!
PS: Sorry for any english mistake, it is not my main language.
PSS: Again, maybe im mistaking how hunters works lol, if so, please spread the light!
