1. Slane Baanrit, before I took an extended break from the game in 2007.
2. Spent some time in Dark Age of Camelot before World of Warcraft was released and more recently a few months in Warhammer.
3. I am interested in seeing the current and future raid content and I believe TRS would be a good fit for me in that regard.
4. Mostly 80 heroic/instance/reputation blues with a few crafted epics sprinkled in for flavor.

Hey Anislan,

Just thought I'd ask you some questions.

1. Since you didn't do BC at all because of your break, how far did you raid successfully in vanilla WoW?

2. What pet do you use? Why?

3. What's your shot rotation/priority?

4. What would you consider to be your "ideal" gear setup/enchants/gems from the current gear available.

5. With upcoming 3.1, and the changes to Marksman and the ability to have 2 talent specs. Would you have 2 specs? What would they be and why?

Hi.

1. In vanilla WoW, Slane Baanrit raided as a part of Soulbound and before BC put raiding on hold we were working on the last boss in AQ (floating eyeball, lasers, name escapes me) and making steady progress in Naxx (I believe we've downed Anub'Rekhan, Faerlina and Razuvious).

2. As my main pet I currently use a wolf mainly for aesthetic reasons, but also because the small AP buff is useful at times and will hopefully be worth it in 3.1 when it will stack with Might and Battle Shout.

3. Funny you ask about shot rotations, because it's something I've been trying to figure out myself. As for now, on single targets, I start with Arcane Shot, then follow with Serpent Sting, Chimera Shot, Aimed Shot and Steady Shot. At that point I pretty much play whack-a-mole with the cooldowns, throwing in Steady Shots when I can. On multiple target pulls, Multi-Shot replaces Aimed Shot and with 3-4+ targets I usually let Multi-Shot and Volley take over.

4. I haven't really researched gear too much, I know that Kel'Thuzad is hoarding the good guns and that the better melee hunter weapons are now two-handers that also drop in Naxx. Other than that, I believe the standard rules for gear still apply: reach hit-cap and then start piling up the AP, crit and haste.

5. I am currently Marksman and plan to stay Marksman through 3.1, I'll have to adjust the way I play a bit, but I think it'll still be my preferred spec. I'll likely pickup Survival as my second spec at first, so I can play with it a bit and see what all the fuss is about, but my second spec will likely end up as some variation of Beast Mastery, mainly for my own amusement.
