    Question Hunter Class Trait Recommendation?

    My Hunter is L74 and has been pretty much Bowmaster class traited since he was born a long time ago. I would love some recommendations for a good DPS build (Bowmaster and/or Huntsman). I primarily solo. And help and/or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Or if there is a web site that specializes in LOTRO Hunters, I would love to get that also. Thanks.

    Before Isen, I would say: 5/2b for sure.
    Now? We still need to do some work and serious parses.

    After a couple of personal tries, my feeling is that for sustained DPS hunstman is still the way to go. But... will not put money on that.

    Thanks... I am currently trying 5 Bowmaster and 2 Huntsman but may reverse and try a 5 Huntsman and 2 Bowman to see what kind of difference I see.

    Other comments and suggestions will be appreciated.

    Re: Hunter Class Trait Recommendation?

    I am trying 5B/2R (split on the crit eye trait, using currently-it's probably not worth it compared to others) and after some practise am making it work quite well I think. Improved fleetness is a pain to keep up but it's worth it I think, just need to be conscious of about the 5sec to go mark and ensure you have 6 Focus ready to go..I usually time it so that I'm inducting a swift bow when I pop it to get fucus back up quick...and it does come up quick while in fleet, can PS/BlA away very well.

    Re: Hunter Class Trait Recommendation?

    Im allways on same how I be before RoI, Mirkwood, MoM etc etc

    4r/3b
    4r:
    Barbed fury
    Swift and true
    Critical Eye
    Fast draw

    //only sometime change Barbed fury from antoher bowmaster traits

    3b:
    Deadly Precision
    Strong Draw
    Resoulte Aim

    to QQers what say how faily it is how no induction no dps or other stupid words:
    No power issues
    No focus issues
    Good dps
    Good induction

    Re: Hunter Class Trait Recommendation?

    Personally, I've settled with 4r/3b for most solo stuff. I set myself up with:

    Barbed Fury
    Swift and True
    Fast Draw
    -situational trait- For me, that covers: Shot through the Heart, True Shot, or Swift Mercy

    Resolute Aim
    Swift Recovery
    Strong Draw


    If I go for 5r over 4, I'll usually dump Swift Recovery for one of my "situational" ones. I run Bard's Arrow, RoT and PO for 4/3 and then CB for the 5/2. Thusfar, it's all worked exceptionally well for me.

    If you have trouble with focus, you can still easily run a red dominate trait line, as Precision easily makes up for what you'd need. So, post-RoI, I think Bowmaster is more feasible than ever as being arguably one of the "best" setups. But, as always, it still falls to what you, as the player, want to do.

    Re: Hunter Class Trait Recommendation?

    I actually have question too ( I thought I'd just post it here rather than post a very similiar thread ). I am level 52 hunter, what traits should I have equiped right now? I just like to know what y'all think for a lower level guy like me rather than 65+ character.

    Thanks, hope you don't mind me posting this here.

    Either 4b/ with traits to buff Needful Haste or spec more into Trapper of Foes to better deal with Moria's pulls which can be at times very nasty.
