Daniel Howell contributes BigRedKitty, a column with strategies, tips and tricks for and about the Hunter class, sprinkled with a healthy dose of completely improper, sometimes libelous, personal commentary.

Patch 3.0.8. has introduced a new term to many hunters: Trap Dancing. A mainstay of the en-vogue 2/18/51 Survivalist hunter, the concept is to keep your enemy engulfed in an Immolation Trap to provide 100% chance that Lock and Load will proc, after which the SV hunter will reap mondo-benefits. The trick is: how to stay in melee-range to trap while continuing to fire from range. This movie will give you the basics of how this is accomplished.

There are more advanced tactics, such as incorporating Sniper Training, that we won't cover here yet. We want you to practice your Trap Dancing and not get discouraged. This is not the easiest shot-rotation and you might get frustrated if asked to perform too many actions right off the bat.

For the addon-curious, the UI is basic Perl, the action bars are built from Bartender4 and ButtonFacade, the spell-counters are courtesy of OmniCC, and the flying numbers are the product of MikScrollingBattleText.

You are invited to download the full-sized version (35MB) of this movie here.

As always, a great big Thank You to the WoW Insider editors for allowing us to publish this movie both here and on our little blog at the same time!
