Before I knew of blogs and EJ, I wanted to hunter. I’d leveled one to 60 in vanilla, putzing about on my own, speccing BM because I thought that was cool at the time. When BC rolled around I decided to make her my main.
I knew, at least, basically what stats to shoot for. I wasn’t that hunter in strength gear or anything. But the nuances were great msyteries for me, and suddenly there was more gear choices, more stats (hit?!), more…everything.
I would have been pretty lost, had I been left to my own devices. But I was not.
I had a mentor. His name was Olgas–as far as I know he still plays this very toon. He put up with my billion questions about what gear to get and what reps to grind. Without him I doubt I would have turned into the top 3 DPS that I did. He still blew me away–there are few hunters out there was awesome as Olgas–but I held my own.
I wonder if he was proud of me? I never thought to ask. I don’t think I ever thanked him, either. Certainly if I did, it was not enough.
If you have a mentor, go give them a cookie.
Cheers, Olgas. Happy huntering.
