    I am going to dial back on my hpal a bit (still play, but I want to spend at least 50% of my time on this new project) because although the build works really well in PuGs, the actual game play a bit one-dimensional (anyone here that actually played against/with me in even games can attest to that).

    I want to roll a talasite and vers stacking MM hunter with speed gears, that strictly queue AB and EOTS (twin-peaks too if i decide to go alliance), where I constantly knock people off the edge with https://www.wowhead.com/spell=186387/bursting-shot

    with https://www.wowhead.com/item=7375/green-whelp-armor I will be able to ignore all melee twinks, and focus on healers and ranged dps only.

    Has anyone done a build like this? Do you think this is a good idea? Do you know any special items that would work well for this project?

    You mean a hunter that chills out in EOTS mid or LM just to get cheese kills by knocking people off a ledge?

    No man. Noones seen that in this bracket. Ever. Definitely a 100% original idea.

    Night elf for shadowmeld so you can kick out of stealth. (In general, I think the idea is a little crazy. But hey, the videos might be fun.)

    always nice to see folks willing to think outside the box!

    interesting...

    EOTS is a pretty big map...why limit yourself to just mid? (just to provide some background, i can usually lead roughly 3~5 alliance players around mage tower over and over without dying, but there is this alliance MM hunter that knocked me off the edge 3 times in a row in one EOTS yesterday, ruining my game and my day, which is what gave me this idea.)

    in AB i think BS should also work pretty well.

    both actually work in pretty annoying ways

    i played a bit of stam stacked surv in BFA as a control toon and it worked remarkably well. So i can appreciate the goal here.

    And i think you might have more luck playing this idea as surv with explosive trap. Reason being, it’s fairly obvious when a hunter is positioning for a shot. There’s often not much you can do about it but someone paying attention may catch you positioning and react accordingly. Gimmick ruined.

    but surv makes it pretty easy to root them in a bad spot, drop a trap and get the punt more reliably. And you get pretty quality mobility, control and pressure while you wait on that cd.

    though i suppose having both trap and shot on a mm hunter would also be funny. Though i don’t think you would need to stam stack to make that viable. Hunters have plenty of survivability built into their kit, especially at range. Feel like that might be an unnecessary sacrifice of damage. And i say this as someone who genuinely enjoys a good stam stack.

    I seriously am tempted to make a leech or speed surv hunt or warlock that has all proc chance to spawn a battle companion gear.

    • dragonling
    • Dragons call
    • Book of dead
    • ??? Other trinket (need to think)
    I would just spam dots from afar in an attempt to create as many proc pets as possible

    Kul tiran hunter or rogue. For hunter you’d have 3 launchers then. My friend has a KT rogue and has a ton of fun sapping/stunning and launching people.

    For gemming, I’d make an all agility set for non eots, ab, and tp. I’d still prefer queuing random just to get games in a reasonable amount of time, and marks of honor chance.

    But yes, for fun getting in melee range of larger groups and launching people, having 2/2 agil/stam and maybe 3 talasites set is enough. Hunters have so many outs from melee range that stacking excessive amounts of stamina isn’t necessary.

    have not done it but i did knock about 9 horde off of spawn starting point (none to their death) last night with 1 bursting shot right as we got got a 4 cap and they all respawned up there unknown that there was one solo short bus hunterard waiting there for them ( i died very shortly after). SOOOO I totally get where your excitement to wanna do such a thing because it was hilarious to see them all go flying. Lol have fun and i know who to try to keep distant from now :)

    Survival is not impressive... Id rather see you do it as a brewmaster.

    thanks for all the advice so far, discussed this with a couple folks and i decided to not proceed with this project for 3 reasons:

    1, i will wait until allied races are unlocked by default, so much work to unlock Kul tiran

    2, i cannot convince myself to play alliance right now (seems that Kul tiran is mandatory for this project), as there are so many cool folks on the horde side to play with

    3, a knock-people-off-edges hunter will get old after 1 pvp weekend so it would be a waste of time and resources. i am better off just playing my hpal and continue to improve my game play for now, yes it is one dimensional but at least it is intense to play as I am constantly trying to survive and kite.

    maybe someone else can make a pvp video with this build (Kul Tiran MM with greenwhelp)!

    Go Kul'Tiran and Explosive Trap PvP Talent for 2 more knockbacks.

    Also, this build might seem fun but it'll only work against stupid people, because the good ones will know how to position themselves to not get knocked into death. I'd just go Agi instead (or 2agi/2stam if you want a mix of dmg and survival)

    Because believe it or not, most hunters don't play entirely around 1 ability with a knockback.
