Hunter-Lovin’ and It Feels So Good

“Dear BRK, just moments ago I finished a heroic Mechanar run with my new guild and promptly received this strange ‘pst’ from the tanking warrior of the group:

‘You my friend, are the best damn hunter I’ve seen in a LONG time.’

“Elation and a rapid flush of the skin soon brought me to my senses as whatever sort of self-gratification and personal feelings of awesomeness were replaced by the big caveat that it was not in fact my own skills and mannerisms as a hunter that this particular tank seemed to praise, but those instilled from a certain BRK.

“Massive-sustained DPS, quickly executed and fore-thoughtfully timed traps (read those damn mobs on the bridge to the last boss), passing on an o-so-needed Primal Nether (I want my ebon netherscale set!) in the end to help the grateful holy paladin, offering to tip the tank … and many more hunterisms were displayed in an ode to the dashing [BRK].

“I’ve not been a part of the WoW community for too long, but for my time spent I’ve enjoyed reading your witty, thought-provoking, and honest-to-God helpful blogs. They’ve helped me tremendously and I just figured you could use some stoking of the “Id”. Grimboch”

As most of our guildies will tell you, our psyche is very strong. Warped, deranged, and fantastically out-of-control, but strong. Publishing this letter isn’t about us, but you.

How in the bloody, bleepin’ BRK-universe did Not Screwing Up And Just Being Nice become the mark of being A Good Hunter? Isn’t that just a screaming, horrific shame?

Don’t get us wrong; we’re thrilled that Grimboch got accolades and felt great and his party inflicted destruction upon those who deserved it. We love to hear he tempered his loot-cravings for the benefit of someone else, and tipped that hard-working tank. But you know what comment we REALLY want to hear some tanks and healers start to say?

“Dude. There’s been a real improvement in the vast number of hunters I’ve partied with and you’re no exception. Good job, thank you.”

Are you doing your part to make our dream come true?
