I am primarily a freep, an rk in fact, and given our own sorry state it's a little weird for me to push for improvements to hunters in the moors since they're traditionally our rivals... though i also have a high ranked spider too
however, when my r2 7 audacity reaver with no bought skills/racials/corruptions gets ambushed with heartseeker by a hunter outside gv, shrugs it off and proceeds to then shred to poor hunter in a completely 1 sided fight, It's time to talk about fixing the class.
let me first clarify that I don't play a hunter and never will, and share my only hunter experience... I rolled a hunter some years ago due to a liking for ranged classes. the very FIRST looting goblin in the tutorial killed me 7 times and i rolled an rk after that. So I have established I SUCK at hunter... I'm sure there are some good representatives for hunters here with a better idea of how to fix hunters than I. I just ask that the devs listen to them.
