    Current state of hunter PVP?

    I haven't played the game seriously since pre-Cata and I was considering making a Hunter

    I am curious to know the community feedback on how hunters fair in PVP

    I see plenty of data on PVE, but not so much PVP

    I am mostly interested in Battlegrounds but don't want to rule out Arena

    Appreciate it, thanks

    Right now in the current patch hunters are really good in pvp. I can't however say anything about 5.4 since it isn't finalized and I'm not sure what changes are sticking.

    BM is still on top, especially in arena, but even in BGs. Dealing with Line Of Sight issues is a lot easier with BM - you can keep pressure up both while people LoS you, and while you are LoSing others when necessary. MM is viable with certain team compositions, but it's not that great.

    5.4 will be interesting to see what happens as ONLY MM will retain Silencing Shot (as a baseline spell for the specialization). In my opinion BM will still have a place because of the LoS/kiting, spirit beast heal utility and mostly for the "free trinket" via Bestial Wrath.

    Survival is the weakest spec currently, but in the right situation can be good for BGs insomuch as it brings decent overall pressure similar to a Boomkin or Lock albeit probably not quite as good as those classes.

    Best bet when playing hunter either in arena or BGs - take along a Disc Priest or Resto Druid.
