    Why not something with a little more flavor? Like Zod's Repeating Longbow or Arathar, the Eye of Flame?

    I'm personally not very fond of the pre-cata Hunter tier sets. Besides the ICC one that is.
    Well I can't speak for everyone else, but I can speak for myself... I started raiding in Molten Core, back when the only ranged weapons were an ugly skeletal bow or a generic "hand cannon". Hunters that went above and beyond got the Lok'delar (sp), but even that got pretty generic.

    Then move onto Blackwing Lair, where you were given the option of a big bent dragon neck or a giant orange dragon cannon. They were great attempts at creativity, but they fell short compared to most of the other weapons in that raid.

    I'm not even going to mention the shit that dropped in AQ. That entire place was just awful...

    For me, Burning Crusade was one of the first times that ranged weapons started getting really cool. Karazhan had the giant orange bow from the last boss, and Vashj dropped the Bristleblitz Striker. They were bows, and they were unique looking, but not corny or overdone.

    In Burning Crusade, Black Temple and Sunwell were the end-game raids. As such, the weapons from those raids were highly coveted. Maybe Black Bow and Golden Bow aren't the MOST visually appealing bows in the game right now, but I think they easily do the best job of keeping their form as a bow and having stunning visuals without going so overboard as to be completely ridiculous (check out the crossbow from Throne of Thunder).

    On top of that, I (and many others) feel BC was kind of the height of WoW raiding. Since the end of BC, the game started down the path of homogenization and nerfed content for casual players, and every other facet of watering down that you can imagine. For me, BC is my 'rose colored glasses' time, so all the weapons from there have a very special place in my nerd heart.

    You don't have to agree with everyone else's choices, nor do you have to like them, but there's just understand that there's likely a lot more to it than you immediately realize.

    On top of all that, Black Bow happens to match my set of choice perfectly. I'd gladly use something else if it fit better, but I have yet to find one:

    black bow of the betrayer is literally the best looking bow in the game

    and it doesn't look small/retarded when it is sheathed on the back

    Changed the shoulders and the weapon.



    This is what I've actually been able to put together in like 2 hours, farming and Auction House.

    Those shoulders look better but i'm still think they look out of place, in the other hand, that gun looks really good with that set

    I've been trying to put together a set that feels more "hunterly" in nature. Looking for pieces that have a leather, animal skins, etc. feel to them. This is where I'm currently at, though I'm still looking for a new chest piece and possibly a different belt. I'll likely lose the tabard if I get those pieces, but for now, I'm pretty happy with the look.

    If anyone has an idea of a nice green bow to go with this, I would much appreciate it.

    That crossfire carbine is awesome, I will have to keep an eye out for it on the AH. Seems farming for it is a massive pain in the ass. Thanks.

    Aww, the new title is so productive and obvious now. So much for me referring to the thread as one giant hunter trap.

    Thank you!

    I got my hunter to 90 a couple of weeks ago and I love transmog so I have been looking for this for ideas but when it wasn't stickied it was a pain in the butt to find.


    My current look is pretty simple...the troll-ish BC JP vendor armor with Crown of Destruction and Golden Bow of Quel'Thalas. Honestly I'd prefer Heartstriker more to match the set but haven't had much time to start gathering up transmog outfits/weapons on this character yet.

    Shrieking Bow is nice, but very hard to find.

    There's a bow that's a BoE green LITERALLY made to match that set. Check my sig. It's the restrung VooDoo bow

    Yes they MIGHT be better, but considering that he has Pandaren Bow should be best. I dont like how Pandarens use Cbows and Guns

    You know, you can put a quiver as one of your bags and have the quiver graphic on your back when you pull the bow out. Sure you won't find a quiver quite as large as another bag, but if you really like the look you can always do that.
