Choosing Your Gear

Choosing what gear you want to get can sometimes be tough, especially since you can't really copy the gear choices that other hunters make, because you probably don't have the same access to gear that they have. But with a little understanding, choosing your gear isn't as hard as you may think.

Most hunter gear has AP and crit, these are the two stats you'll see on your gear the most, but generally there is a 3rd stat to take into consideration. The 3rd stat will be either haste, amor pen or hit rating. When choosing your gear at lower ilvls, don't worry about taking as much gear with hit rating as you can only have a couple pieces of gear with hit, and still meet the cap with talents. But as marks with higher ilvls of gear, you'll have a lot more ARP, and will want to carefully choose, so that you don't need as many talents in focused aim and you can put them in improved steady shot.

After taking hit rating into account, you want to try and take the gear without haste. While haste does improve your DPS, it's the worst stat we have and should be avoided. However, there is course exceptions, for example: if you have a low ilvl melee weapon, and you're able to get your hands on Distant Land , then you will want to take it, because its a DPS increase.

A couple rules of thumb are:

* Take enough gear with hit that you don't need to go to the extreme of taking 3 talents in focused aim and even gem/enchant hit rating.

*After the first rule, only take gear with ARP and not haste.

Also, test out pieces of gear using the spreed sheets, it's the best way to figure out what gear is best for you.

I hope this helps clear up some of the email questions I've gotten, cheers.
