Learn to make the best gear choices
Gear and equipment choices are complicated for any class or situation. As a Hunter the situation is no different. Is it better to focus on Agility or Attack Power, Crit or Hit? This is further complicated by the various builds chose from. In today's Hunter guide update Byron "Messiah" Mudry looks at the numerous options a Hunter has and lays out some guidelines for choosing the best gear.
Hunter stats should focus on maximizing the amount of damage dealt by your ranged weapon. A hunter is strongest at a distance and relies on stats that help increase ranged damage.
