hello fellow hunters im just wondering whats the best race for a hunter on horde side and why?
im 95% pvp so not much pve
i went goblin in cata because i liked the racial jump to get away from people faster but now we dont have a range distance with bow its not as important i dont think please let me no.
At the moment...Orc is looking best imo. Is it 5% more pet damage? And blood fury for the damage proc.
Very well synchronised with both pve and pvp because BM is the top spec for both.
Pet damage synergises with BM altogether and since BM is a burst spec blood fury syncs even more perfectly.
I'll give you all of it here, seems like everyone are retarded here.
BM is gonna get nerfed, MM getting buffed. You probably knew about that as of PTR notes though.
Racials that matters in PvP
Touch of the grave: Deals 13k shadow damage and healing you for the damage dealt
Will of the Forsaken: Removes any fear, charm or sleep effect, shares a 30-sec ICD with trink
Increased expertise with bows
10% Less duration on roots/slows
On-use 20% haste buff (3-min CD)
15% Less stun duration
2% more damage dealt from pets
On-use 3k AP racial (2-min CD)
On-use 8yd 2-second stun. (2-min CD)
5% more base HP.
On-use 8yd 2-second silence +15 focus (2-min CD)
On-use 4-second melee stun. (2-min CD)
Goblin: (which u are but still)
1% passive haste
Forward disengage (2-min CD)
I find undeads being the best for PvP as when Marksman is viable. I say this because when you play BM you will have no chance of using WoTF since it shares DR with Bestial wrath.
The 20% proc chance miniheal is sort of nice, but it's not that gamechanger. It basically puts us ahead of orcs in terms of pvp damage wise as long as we stay marks, the lifesteal can also crit.
My view on best race overall for hunters:
Human > UD > Nelf > Dwarf > Orc > Goblin > Troll > Dwarf > Panda > Tauren = Blood elf > Worgen > Draenei

90 Orc Hunter
Imo depends a bit on yr style as well and the content you may be interested.
For example i find goblins racial amazing for open pvp (bgs, wpvp)
UD: for arenas
Orc as a balancing all around
Trolls and taurens have less utility in my eyes but again that is just me.
I'm pretty sure MM was strong from the start of cata and it remained strong throughout the entire expansion...you can't assume that BM won't remain a dominant spec.
Nonetheless your information (Niosa) is valuable but IF BM does remain strong...then orc should show nice numbers - BM synergises around burst. But if you're right and MM or SV go through stronger then i'll stand by your options.
If you don´t bother for racials and such.
Lore-wise, go blood elf (rangers are best archers in lore) or go orc (friends of the pets). This is, ofcourse, for the lore-part. Also taurens are in lore great hunter, but well...who wants to be a tauren
Trolls racials does !@#$ all in pvp, haste buff is not even a solid choice because Aimed shot does no damage anyways.
UD, Orc or goblin in pvp. You shouldn't ever be near a healer as a hunter making war stomp/aoesilence just bad.
Why should you not be close to a healer? Let me tell you..
Stay close to a druid -> bash
Stay close to a priest -> fear
Stay close to a holydin -> blind
Stay close to a shaman -> rooted
Stay close to a monk -> disarm/9sec stun.
Moral of the story, belfs and tauren racials are bad cause they rely on you putting yourself in a bad position.
If you don´t bother for racials and such.
What !@#$ing lore did you read? How are blood elfs prime hunters? You're known for being arcane masters %^-*!@#it! Trolls, orc, dwarfes, nelfs and taurens are all prime hunters lore-wise.
