All so true, so very true – but try convincing that group to wait around the corner for you to do your hunter-thing.
Actually if I remember rightly from my level 15-30 days, people are more likely to give you one chance and one chance only – they say ‘hunter pull’ and then they follow you and stand beside you so that when things go wrong they all die and then pulling is taken over by the tank. Needless to say I have little confidence with pulling in a group situation. Even though I have a few nice macros for pulling during solo play hot keyed.
Aim: learn to boss around basic PUG groups so I am allowed to pull… for this I will need to learn the instance backwards … and then take charge (sigh … really I am more happy as a sheep – mark the thing you want me to trap with the cube and I am cool, lazy-hunter away)
EDIT: oh wait once (in my younger levels) a party leader let me use my pet to drag a mob out of a cave and onto strategic ground – it was awesome! I loved that leaderguy. He was my hero for levels and levels – before I became jaded and 70.
