tbh you don't need the heirlooms, I got my hunter from 6 to 85 in under 7 days of /played time without them.

I have aracne mage and bm huntard alts myself, and although I play the mage a little more, I would probably recommend the Huntard. 'Soloing' elites that are +5 levels higher than you can be a pleasant diversion, and seeing your pet out-dps noobs can be gratifying.

I only have 2 pets for my huntard, a dps talented kitty and a tank talented gorilla. The gorilla successfully tanked the 3rd boss in H-stonecore for quite a while after a couple of clueless tanks died, until the healer let me die. Basically I don't think the gorilla ever died before me, over numerous wipes.

The 1 thing I hate about that boss is I have not been able to figure out how to get a 'dot' credit as either of my dps alts. For my mage, I switch to fire spec for that 1 damn fight; for the huntard, serpent sting and cobra shot do nothing for me, so I just eat it. On my tank, this is the easiest fight in the world, and was already fairly easy prior to the nerf, just a tad unforgiving if you lost concentration on positioning. Even on holy pally I have figured out a dot (judgement or holy shock) that I can usually manage.

He means how do you break the Paralyze on Orzuk so you don't take the giant burst of damage like a noob.

There's plenty of good ideas for troublesome classes and specs in the Wowhead comments for Orzuk.

As far as I can tell, and having tried a lot of stuff out, there is no way to currently avoid getting stunned and needing to be dispelled as a hunter.

You have no spell dots so nothing can be reflected onto you.
master's call does not work.
deterrence does not work.
feigning death does not work
that flying jump thing doesn't work.
there are no magic dispel pet abilities.

any other ideas? :<

Hunters have three choices on Ozruk: melee, chug a Sulfuron Slammer, or bribe a healer for a dispell.

This poll desperately needs a "Friday" option. I can't help but giggle every time I see the thread title.

Kickin’ with the mage class
Tryin’ out the rogue class
Gotta make my mind up
Which class should I create?

The song sucks and everything, but she has handled it like a champ and gets my respect for that.

Their official "rap" remix on the other hand is the worst thing ever.
We live in a society where people born on third base constantly try to steal second, yet we expect people born with two strikes against them to hit a homerun on the first pitch.

maybe someone will take her serious and give her a shot with a real (or at least decent) song
and drop the stupid auto-tuner

No way. The song is incredibly deep. You're just not seeing it.
</deadpan>

The Tuesday is raid night parody is comedy gold though.

The thing that I love is that the original version is so bad that it's funny. And I have to respect her for taking it in stride; I mean lots of young girls (or boys for that matter) have dreams of being a pop star at one point in their lives. She just happened to have parents with enough money to pay to let her pretend to be one for a short time.

Still, I just find the whole thing hilarious. It's sort of like one of your friends accidentally uploading an innocent video in which they made a fool of themselves. You think it's hilarious, and they're embarrassed but see the humor in it. Even though you're having a laugh at their expense, it's got an empathetic subtext to it. Except this time it's not just you and your buddy, it's the entire internet. In a sentence, "wow that's embarrassing, but don't worry kid, we've been there too" (though not in the same magnitude, obviously).

Amusing aside: I have a guildmate who's renamed one of his pets "Takethisseat." And several of them crack jokes about it during raids (we raid on, you guessed it, Fridays).
