Hunter FTW!

Having pretty much lost interest in doing dailies on Aurora, and not really interested in questing in Zul 'Drak on my DK, I decided to make a new alt.  I have a lvl 16 ret pally that I had been working on, but got tired of melee DPS.  I have a lvl 24 Mage, but got tired of being so squishy and not having anyone to quest with to either tank with or heal me.

So.. I had created a hunter on Ravenholdt and was having a pretty good time with her, but I missed my friends on Durotan.  So I decided to take on a new alliance hunter on Durotan.  Her name is Kalandra.  I have been working on her pretty much constantly.  I have taken up maybe running the fishing dailies on Aurora just for a little cash, as I am stuck at 427 on my enchanting and don't really NEED any enchants to help lvl it to max.  And that mats are so expensive!  Most of the higher end enchants cost more to make than they sell for on the AH.  And my tailoring was great for when I was lvling because I could make my own gear.. and not to mention that I can make BAGS!

So, I created a hunter.  Kalandra is a night elf beast mastery hunter.  I chose BM because David said it is one of the fastest ways to lvl her.  I have been working on her maybe 3 weeks and she is lvl 28.  I probably could have her higher by now but I get bored just constant questing.  I have been working on primary and secondary professions for her, and her primaries are neck and neck for lvl.  And are both above the zones that I am currently questing in.  I chose Herbing and Alchemy as my two profs.  My alchemy is at the lvl that it requires herbs from lvl 30 zones.  And my herbing is high enough to obtain these herbs.

I almost always enjoy lvling my profs more than my actual character lvls.


  1. How to get tons of enchanting materials:
    1) One high level miner. Epic flying is even better.
    2) One high level jewelcrafter.
    3) One high level blacksmith.

    Mine. Prospect. Save all green quality red, orange, yellow, and blue gems as well as eternal earth. Have your JC make them into cheapy level 70 rings and necklaces. Shard them for massive dust.

    For rare shards:
    Mine saronite. Smelt. Take 7 parts saronite to 2 parts crystalized air. Makes one dagger. Shard. Repeat.


  2. She only has one 80 atm so that isn't really an option for her. Though I've suggested before that she hops on my toons to do that. There are many other things too like using BS to craft greens straight from the ore to disenchant. There are some low 70 lw patterns as well that she could work on with her DK but she would have to level those professions as well.

  3. Yeah, the enchanting on Aurora isn't so much an issue anymore, I am high enough to have all the trainable recipes with the exception of abyssmal shatter.

    My DK is retarded and has skinning/ lw. My skinning is maxed but my LW is still at shattrath lvl training I think (i'm like 265ish)

    My hunter on the other hand like I said above... the profs out lvl my character lvl. Will be ok tho as I go along.
