Help please - mage or hunter for pvp?
Return to board index
Usually I don't make posts like this, but I feel like I'm really in a bind as for what class to choose for PvP.
I have both a lvl 80 hunter and a lvl 80 mage, but my experience is mostly on the PvE side, so before I go and spend 200 WG commendations on the wrong class, I figured I'd get some input here first. So I have a few questions, along with a few key points I like on each class. If I could get some experiences and/or recommendations from you guys, I would really appreciate it :-)
What I like about mages in PvP:
- Not too many counter classes
- Lots of comps involve mages
- Frost has interesting mechanics
What I like about hunters in PvP is a bit harder to quantify - mostly it's sort of a gut feeling, but from the video footage I've seen, the trap mechanics and disengange mechanics looks a lot more fun in PvP than PvE. Also, I've always liked the look and feel of the hunter.
Now to the questions?
- What are the hunter counterclasses in PvP in a 1v1 scenario?
- What do _you_ like about playing a hunter/mage in PvP?
- Which of the two classes would you say is more versatile and why?
Really hoping for some help here, so please post :-)

GO RED MAGE!
Troll somewhere else.
i have both also and tough choice but i'd go with whatever class your comfortable with the most.
i like my hunter but in pvp the game is to kite non-stop your spec your pet crab/spider all play a big part in that i went with a crab for the 1 sec dash stun and 4 sec pin only thing i hate is getting in a jam close up and disengage is on cd rogues/war are usually the most pain i deal with as a hunter.
ice mages is a toss up for pvp if played right can pretty much take out any other class have so many things to use iceblock/blink/deep freeze alot of spells to slow attackers and get away and ice barrier to absorb damage but even then your a glass cannon you get caught your dead less you pop off invis in time :D
your choice though like i said i'd go with the one your the most comfortable with just makes it easier.
Yeah, the Mage is a glass cannon, but the Hunter is a carboard cannon at best. And the Mage has a lot easier time keeping things at a distance.
I would only focus on your Hunter if you have a very strong affinity for the playstyle. The fact that you're making this post suggests to me that you don't love your Hunter enough to make up for the fact that it's nowhere near a Frost Mage for PvP ability. To even come close would require a great deal of skill and effort.
Thanks for the responses - I think you're right regarding my preferences for the hunter, so I'm going frost mage for now and if I don't like it in the long run, I'll just have to eat the honor grind once again. Again, thanks for the input :-)
