For my first post, I figured an introduction was in order. I'm Hesson, and I'm a hunter from Gurubashi. More specifically, I'm a BM hunter. I've been a BM hunter since I started playing, and I don't ever plan on changing. I was already in love with the spec, and with the release of Wrath of the Lich King and the introduction of some of the coolest pets ever created, my feelings were only reinforced. Even when BigRedKitty seemed to have abandoned the spec for everything but exotic tames, I pressed on, convinced that beast mastery is capable of more than everyone thinks. Thanks to my stubborn attitude regarding talent specialization, I've essentially forced myself to learn how to get the most out of the beast mastery talent tree. However, I've noticed something in the WoW community regarding beast mastery: everyone thinks it's bad.
As someone who's familiar with its ins and outs, I disagree, but up until now I haven't had a place to tell everyone how much I disagree, and why. I'm certainly not the best hunter in the game in the gear department, but I'm convinced that beast mastery is capable of doing just as much damage as survival and marksmanship, if not more. My primary goal with this site is to share my thoughts, advice and strategies for playing a hunter and one of the most underrated specs in the game, as well as any hunter related developments with new patches and game changes.
In the real world, however, I'm a web designer and developer. I've coded this entire website from scratch, including the custom framework it runs on, as well as several WoW and gaming related code libraries. So with that in mind, I intend to share those libraries with you, in the hopes that it will make other web designers' lives easier. I'll admit, that's probably a pretty small target audience, but since this is essentially a personal gaming related blog I figured it wouldn't hurt to include. Because this entire thing was written from scratch, there are obviously bound to be bugs in both display and functionality. If you happen to encounter any bugs, I greatly appreciate your feedback and have setup a bug reporting page for just that.
I look forward to bringing you new, regular content. With all that in mind, if you're a survival or marksman hunter who's pretty confident with your class specialization, I'm looking for someone to contribute content for those specs. You can either reply to this post, or send me an email. Thanks for reading my introduction, and be sure to check out my first hunter build post: Beast Mastery: Understanding an underrated specialization.
