Scattered Shots: Cataclysm hunter video roundup

Brian Wood

Welcome to Scattered Shots, written by Frostheim of Warcraft Hunters Union and the Hunting Party Podcast. Each week, Frostheim uses logic and science (mixed with a few mugs of dwarven stout) to look deep into the hunter class. Got hunter questions? Feel free to email Frostheim.

There's a lot of Cataclysm info flowing fast and furious these days, and of course the information is changing almost as quickly as you can digest and analyze it. But it's one thing to read about all these Cataclysm changes to the hunter class, and yet another entirely to actually see them.

So today we're going to do a round up of some of the Cataclysm hunter videos out there to let you see the new pets, the new specs, the new rotations, and the cool new hunter abilities at work.

BRK hunter videos

As the granddaddy of all hunter bloggers, the fantastic BRK's videos are a great place to start. BRK ushered many hunters into Wrath with his Wrath beta videos, and he's come back specifically to give us a peek at what's going on with the hunter class in the Cataclysm beta. You can view his videos at the Bigredkitty Youtube Channel or from these links:
WHU hunter videos

I also have a handful of beta videos up over at the WHU. And because it's always the first question: The music in the intro is from the I'm a Hunter song, which is not available for download. You can see the WHU videos at the WHU Youtube Channel or from these links:
Other hunter videos

Here are a couple of other beta hunter videos that shed some additional insight into the state of the hunter class: general Cataclysm videos is also continually introducing new Cataclysm videos. While most of these are not specific to the hunter class, they will give you a really good look into what's going on in Cataclysm, the new zones, the quests, the dungeons. You can check out all of the videos at the Youtube channel.

What do you want to see?

I plan to put together a bunch more videos for you guys once the bugs get worked out of the current beta build and our rotations are working again. These include the new MM shot rotation, SV shot rotation, BM shot rotation, a hunter PoV of various dungeons like Blackrock Caverns and Throne of Tides, new pet abilities once the pet design pass happens, and of course, Camouflage, once the level cap is raised to 85.

Other than these, what do you want to see in hunter videos from the beta? Let me know and I'll try to put it together for you!
