I decided to set up a channel to stream content so I can work out all the bugs before MoP comes out. I plan on live-blogging my progress to level 90 and this channel is going to be a huuuuge part of that. In the meantime, I’ll be doing broadcasts of raids and possibly broadcasting as I level one of my hunter alts. Who knows! There’s not much to do in game right now, but I’m gonna find something to broadcast and blog about, damn it!
Possibly will stream something tonight, but I for sure want to stream my raid tomorrow night! If you’re not following me on Twitter, you should probably start… I’m going to be posting there whenever I start streaming!
I have just added Hunter POV videos for every fight to my Hunting Heroic Dragon Soul guide! These videos should help clarify any questions regarding fight mechanics or positioning and give you a good idea of what your role in the fight will be if you’re new to the fight as a hunter. Enjoy!

One of the most essential techniques you can learn as a hunter is kiting. It’s necessary to your survival while leveling and PvPing, it can salvage a wipe in a dungeon or raid, and it separates the beginners from the pros. There’s a reason hunters are the best kiting class in the game!
Jump Shotting is a little more advanced kiting technique, but goes well with a basic kiting tutorial so I decided to include both the basics and advanced fundamentals of kiting in this video.
The expansion is rapidly coming to a close and Tier 13 is ending. With the 20% nerf coming out, even more people will be progressing through Dragon Soul. Hunters were all over the place this tier. We started out okay then quickly got nerfed into the ground. They finally fixed us a couple patches in to 4.3 and with good gear and great knowledge of the fights, we are able to go head to head with some of the classes who spend a bit too much time sitting at the top of the meters.
This guide assumes you already have previous knowledge of the fights and focuses mainly on hunter-specific mechanics and tricks you need to know to maximize your effectiveness in the encounters. I have also included videos of the fights from a hunter POV so you can get an idea of what your role in the fight will look like. (Language in videos may be considered NSFW, you have been warned!)
