After recent sale of my original account, I got myself a new one (yes its like heroin) I've create myself a little hunter that I intend on leveling up in my limited spare time.

Just a few questions really.

1) Whats the best leveling spec?, I've noticed after checking some of the hunters on SS that survival is the main raiding spec, after checking some sites BM seems to be rather popular.

2) Whats deemed to be a good pet to level with?

3) Any good info sites for hunters?

Cheers in advance

Dont know as much about hunters as some others on this forum but I would suggest BM for lvling. Having your pet do the dps will make up for your crap gear.

Atleast for a noobhunter alt as me its the best way to go ;p

The other 2 questions I will let the experts handle ;o)

1. I'd put talents in BM randomly in places you like and a few points in MM (up to Aimed Shot). You will end with something near BM-soloer build (like my secondary spec).

2. One might say that some dps pet (means wolf, raptor, cat) might be good because of Bloodthirsty. But tenacity allows to take more than one mob at time - for AoE take bear or crocko.

3. http://petopia.brashendeavors.net/ has all you need to know about pets.
http://www.bigredkitty.net/ - even if BRK does not play anymore his blog (with active forum) is still there. Would say that it is the best place for someone who started playing.
http://tkasomething.com/ is still a good place (with their classic Rhok soloing movies).
And as always http://elitistjerks.com/f74/ for all the jerks.

If you are really new to hunter then Aspect of the Hare is an entertaining way to get started too.

Well it's certainly more fun to read than elistist jerks (they really only focus on raiding)

AS for the pet ... I used to swear by gorillas but since thunderstomp is now open to all tenacity pets I'd try a turtle.

I'd still stay with some AoE tanking pet. Thunderstomp is quite shitty atm, nothing compared to old Gorilla-only version. And if you don't solo heroics and raid instances then tutle's shield wall might be overkill imo (hell bears are used in soloing too). Tho for soloing bosses warp stalker seems to be interesting atm too.
