    Anyone else want Mele back as a hunter?

    Maybe a spec for it? People keep hinting or asking for it for WoD

    I mostly just want it back because I have a bunch of awesome hunter weapons going to waste in my bank, They are so cool looking, but I can't use them.

    Example, I have my pole-arm from the last season of Cata, the nostalgic memories of doing arenas keep flooding my mind when I see it in my bank; I would love to be able to use it again.

    If it was a viable spec like "Beast Master" that was based around melee sure.

    If it's like it was, spamming raptor strike and wing clip/mongoose bite and spending tons on a weapon enchant, then no.

    not now, at this point it will never happen, melee abilities will never be given back to hunter


    if i could redesign hunters (and shamans) for Vanilla from scratch:
    • Enhancement would be Melee-No Pet
    • Beast Master would be Melee + Pet
    • Survival would be called 'Ranger' and be Ranged + Pet
    • Marksman would Ranged-No Pet
    .


    When someone asks you if you're a god, YOU SAY 'YES'!

    I agree completely. Beast masters are supposed to dual wield axes anyway, like Rexxar. I could even see them being a tank spec, POSSIBLY.

    The survival 31pt talent in vanilla is literally the worst talent that's ever been in the game, and it was a melee attack.

    Never again.

    Hell no. I've mained a warrior since 2005, but recently got more active with my hunter alt, which I had last played before melee got removed. It's such a stark contrast to how my main plays, while still keeping the mobility, which makes me love it so much that I technically have two mains now. Melee/ranged hunter was alright, but ultimately not that intriguing, but pure ranged hunter is great fun to play, as it offers a completely different experience from my warrior.

    Though to appease the people nostalgic for melee/ranged hybrid, if it's not a technical hassle they can change Survival tree to be a hybrid. Not like I ever use that spec anyway.
    Now you see it. Now you don't.

    If they converted survival to be a viable melee spec, sure.

    But as that has 0% chance of happening, no. I'm glad they took out the ability for trolls to go melee and mess up my day.
    You don't create "justice" by destroying. That includes buildings, cars, or the careers of the people you want "justice" for.

    Considering how much Blizzard hates Melee right now, why would you want to?

    I would prefer a spec without a pet actually or a talent like Warlock sacrifice.
    The trick of selling a PvP-MMO is creating the illusion among gankers that they are respectable fighters while protecting them from respectable fights, as their less skilled half would be massacred and quit instead of “HTFU” as they claim.

    Not half assed like it used to be.
    -I'd prefer BM to be the melee spec. Fight side by side with your pet.
    -MM be the petless spec focusing only on weapons and fancy shots.
    -Survival being the poisons spec. Give them another poison and emphasize the rotation around DOTs.

    That's exactly what they're doing. One of the level 100 talents buffs Survival hunters with 30% more damage if they dont have a pet out.

    Yes... absolutely and utterly yes.

    Even with a few spells it was still fun, I want my beastmaster class dammit. They could seriously make an incredibly unique spec by combining the range and melee abilities of a Hunter.

    Why?! If you want to melee surely you'd just be a melee class? Alternatively .. you could just shoot from point blank?

    I think OP meant he wanted a stat stick. I too think it looks cooler whenever my hunter ran around with a staff/pole arm than nothing at all.

    You can do that now. Just be sure to add an /equip command to all your weapon-dependent abilities.

    In the first few months of my WoW career my hunter was pretty much a melee class
