Hunter has been one of the most popular classes in World of Warcraft since the early days of 'vanilla' WoW, before any expansions came out. So it's no wonder that there are a lot of people out there looking for information on hunter gold farming! This guide will help you learn everything you need to know to mow down mobs as fast as possible, so you can get a ton of loot in a short amount of time!
The first thing many hunters worry about is the spec they're using. Well, the thing is that all three hunter specs have pros and cons; Beast Mastery Hunters will have a stronger pet, which is handy thanks to the improvement in their key tanking skills. Survival Hunters will gain several advantages, and the powerful Explosive Shot as another AoE attack. And Marksmanship will buff the best farming ability, the vital Volley AoE attack. So spec whatever you normally use, anything will work just fine.
When it comes down to it, the more vital factor for hunter gold farming is your pet! Gorrilla is pretty much the only good choice; bears have a limit to the number of targets they can hold aggro on, but gorrillas are good for as many as you can handle! For their spec, you'll want to make sure you get Greater Stamina, Natural Armor, Blood of the Rhino, Pet Barding, Grace of the Mantis, and Boar’s Speed. Otherwise go with whatever you want, but these talents are key.
As for the exact details of how you should be fighting...a lot of the time Volley's the only thing you'll need to worry about using (so make sure you have the Glyph!). The real trick is often in your pulls. Boar's Speed and Eye of the Beast can work together to give you perfect, clean, huge pulls, but if that's too much of a pain you'll need to be very careful to not let your pet get bogged down by a bunch of enemies pinging away it him while you try to pull. If you're not using Eye of the Beast, your location is going to be vital.
And make sure you avoid caster mobs; they'll beat your pet stupid and often end up out of the range of Thunderstomp and your Volley!
That's about all there is to it. Hunter gold farming isn't too hard once you have the right setup; with a properly specced Gorrila, things kinda fall into place on their own.
