    This is a question that can apply to non-WOW players as well.

    Which kind of animal would you choose to tame and keep as your pet?

    Damn you Tamzen lol :D

    My hunter is my main, and I love my piggy. It was better before they fixed th "bug" that allowed boars to generate about 5000 threat with charge and growl, but I still use him as my tanking pet when questing.

    I use my cat for instances, but there's no love there. It's a purely working relationship.

    Fyi Foin, my pali is now lvl 55 and probaly going to end up prot spec, which I don't mind. Tanking is more challenging than dps, and we have too many healers and not enough tanks atm.

    I hope your pet's not called "Boar" or something like that you crazy farming machine!:p

    My old pet was a wolf called Saladin.A Ghostpaw Alpha.I still have him but in the stable.I also have one more cat in the stable but my new best friend is a cat which I named Shadow and he's a black panther.I got him from STV because he can use prowl.

    If someone kills a hunter's pet in WOW that's like...a serious insult.That's very bad.I take it personally if someone kills my pet first when he can easily kill me.I admit I've killed hunter pets with my other characters but only because I was angry with them or as a warning for them.

    Hunters are lame. Lame are hunters. Get some skill and roll another class.

    period.

    It's wrong.Most farmer bots,at least the first ones were hunters,most twinks are hunters and rogues and generally in every server hunters are one of the most popular classes with Rogues being perhaps the most popular(I don't know why).

    Hunters are badly criticized for being easily the easiest class to play. Hence, they attracht the err... less skilled, as do Rogues, by the way, though those need some decent button bashing at least.

    Hunters deal out a lot of damage, have a decent pet, are reasonably armoured - and come with one of the best crowd control options. And they have something called autoshoot, which is a button you can press to make your hunter shoot automatically.

    Though, on the contrary, they are not as popular in (instance-)groups for the simple reason that they do not make for a "core class" (typically Warrior, Priest, Mage), are overpopulated and are, by default a "skill risk", as most sub-par players have a hunter (simply because they're so easy to play).

    Still most of the hunters are seen in PvP, in which they have a slight edge simply because of that pet, high damage spikes - and the frost trap. Again, little skill involved (compared to other classes). This is another good reason to hate hunters :eek:
