Extreme Solo Hunter Farming Guide
Hunter Guide to Soloing of Classic, TBC, WotLK, Cata Dungeons
Time, Gold, Gear, Loot, Leather, Cloth, Tactics

by Spookself, Nelf Hunter, Aerie Peak. Update: Patch 4.3 Aug 2012

Spec: Most dungeons can be done in MM/Surv. BM Solo Extreme Hunter build is used in difficult places or for large pulls of trash.
MM is useful for self heals of Chimera shot eg Sapphirion.

Pet: Bear [Spooksbare] / Turtle [Turtleshed]. Tank speced. Spirit Beasts can be useful for self healing fight.

Gear: Current ilvl 384 Raid gear with 2 x T5 Rift Stalker Armor. Hit capped. Gemmed for agility.
. I have extra pvp set gemmed with stamina, useful for certain fights.

Consumables & Buffs: Raid Buffed (from BG) or Drums of Forgotten Kings. Scroll Of Fortitude. Elixir of the Master/ Agility/ Prismatic / Deep Earth. Skewered Eel.
Healing: Mythical Healing Potion, Crystal Focus, Fel Healthstone, Dense Embersilk Bandages, Chimera Shot, Spirit Beast, Spirit Bond.

What i learn: most things are soloable using timing of heal/cower, pet interrupts and T5 gear, with judicial use of FD, Deterrence, Shadowmeld and LOS. You Tube is very usefull guide where all the writing in the world could not aid you. The most difficult part were the mobs themselves but some spectacular large pulls can be made when there are no stuns or nets, with the fireworks of multishot giving you a sense of misplaced importance and power. Your most underused and useful spell is Tranquilize shot and Intimidation. With this tireless campaign of rampaging murder I have earned myself a shield in the Halls of the Tyrranical, or the killer of evil depends from which angle you see. This is not a gold reapers guide, but a comparison of what is possible solo and the rewards/rep you may gain from the least amount of work, when your dailies get boring. Running old dungeons therefore can be as profitable as Cata normals and much more challenging! And why solo dungeons in a MMRPG? You always want time out and some personal rewards and sense of satisfaction from beating a system which can be manipulated to your own ends. This guide WILL become obsolete with the many changes in any future patch, but I will endeavour to update while I am alive and can be concerned about such trivial peripheral life shortening entertainment.
