    They're not amazing but i wouldn't say they're garbage. You're basically just going to be disrupting the enemy team with wing clips and harpoon roots, and also keeping rogues off your FC with wing clip. if you want to top charts and do fat numbers then don't play one. you're a support class, or spec in this case.

    I rarely ever see any survs on EU. Padding damage seems to be "okay", but it's not really useful (serpent sting spread), other than being annoying for stealth classes.

    With that said, you're still a hunter, and you have some decent utility in track hidden, track humanoid, trap, wingclip, pet utility (run speed as well as using it to keep people in combat etc. etc.), hook resets that does add some snowball effect in mid etc.

    I don't believe you'll be 1v1'ing a lot of things though, so it's all down to what you expect in a class.
     
  3. Much more in depth answers than I had hoped for. You guys are great. Thanks :)

    Depends on how u play it. I play surv hunter with a tanky build at 20 which has same skills as 19 and it still tops dmg/dps

  7. That's the thing, I can't find a way to get an epic agi 2h. And a blue agi 2h is probably better than epic str 2h.

    You can only get an epic agility 2h from rolling the dice with quests. Otherwise use a blue 2h agility weapon.

    I haven't tried out survival since the nerf, but I would imagine that it might still be worth keeping a couple of 1h weapons with elemental force to deal out some damage while at range - but I wouldn't base the spec around it anymore. The "BiS" would likely be epic Talon of Vultros (7agi/3crit) or Slicer Blades (8agi) - but I wouldn't bother and would just stick with the cheap Bronze Shortswords (or 1h verse/crit dungeon drops if a rogue/monk friend will trade them to you).
     
  9. Thanks for all the advice :) I'm gonna make a hunter anyway and see what weapons I can score. I'd been being really dumb and mousing over all the quest rewards in the zone lists one by one to look for gear. I have now clicked the "Filter quest rewards" link and discovered numerous agi 2h to roll the dice on. If not, maybe I'll get a nice bow.

    you should consider rerolling for an epic Field Tested Spear, that polearm is BiS now that dual wielding isn't very good
