    I tried a few different window setups and this worked best for me. Long term it's easier on the wrist to move left to right for dps, versus up and down. I wish it all magically fit on the screen nice (I know I can change resolutions), however, like everything, you get used to it pretty quickly. Now that I've been doing it for a few months, it is of course harder, but not as bad as I thought it would be.

    Even though their boxed dps is lower than the other teams, there are some Heroics that are way easier with Hunters. Defintley keep them.

    Arctraz final boss is much more doable with hunters, as he seems to focus more on the pets with his mind control and fear. Make sure to use snake traps too, they count as pets for him to attack. On a good run, the team is barely touched as he focuses all the pain on the pets.

    Auchenai Crypts second boss, Shirrak The Deadwatcher is just about impossible now with casters becuase of the stacking debuff that slows casting speed. The hunter team made this much easier. I couldn't do it with all casters. I ended up skipping him with the caster group by running past and reincarnating with the Shaman.

    Shadow Labs is another one. Second boss was easier with Hunters. One trick is to lay Freezing Traps at the start. Then when he mind controls everyone they trap people for a few valuable seconds. When playing mages for this boss, their burst dps kills everyone or gets them all very low on health when he mind controls. Shamans aren't much better.

    One last thought on Hunters. Since we are doing everything manually one screen at a time now, the auto shot of Hunters helps get bosses and trash down. With mages and Shamans, you need to constnalty be pressing their attack macros. There are times where I am focused on healing and staying alive and the caster teams are not getting attacks off, where the Hunters would still be attacking, at least with auto shot.

    I'll start recording a little more and posting here. Good luck, keep posting progress. It's fun to know there are a few of us left.

    Any chance you could get a Windows machine? They are pretty cheap now and you can run 5 clients easily on a decently priced machine.

    Thanks Teslah & simpletom for the good conversations and I am glad some folk are still boxing.

    Teslah, I subscribed to your YouTube channel and enjoyed the video. Looking forward to more!

    Are you using a steady shot macro for the hunter? I went away from using steady shot because of how awkward it is trying to time it so that there's no clipping.

    Have you considered replacing the resto shaman for a resto druid? the heal over time effects are more easier to manage just place hots and forget rather than having the resto shaman target/click and having to pay attention to HP. Basically, resto druid helps with current AND future damage the target might receive.

    Thought I would throw in a long overdue update on this team

    I took bit of a break from this, largely due to my work I don't always have access to the best internet connections.

    That said I was fortunate/unfortunate enough to land myself in a position where I had to quarantine for 14 days in a hotel room. A lot of free time on my hands my focus was to get the team to 70 and start hitting up dungeons. I leveled to 70, completeing all quests in Nagrand, blades edge mountains, shadow moon valley and quite a large part of Netherstorm before finally hitting 70.

    My realm has completely died now, there's practically no-one left playing there. Its quite amazing really.

    As soon as I hit 70 I with pretty decent green quested gear I thought I would try my luck on Seth Halls, try and get my paladin the limbram off the first boss and get my hunters the pole arm from the quest, it went horrendously. I could do the first boss, messy as always but could do it blowing all cool downs and ignoring the spawned adds. Couldn't even get to the final boss. I went back to focusing on finishing the group quests and get the best possible quested gear I could for the team and make sure paladin was defense capped (I'm sure that the paladin was def capped for Seth but yeah better safe than sorry)

    At this point, I put the failing down to perhaps I need windows for the mouse over focus window, so I put bootcamp on my Mac to play, and my word what a difference it made, my play style was far more streamline and I was able to start doing SV, the first boss gave me a lot of issues, far more than anything else in the dungeon the AOE was just too much for my extremely glass cannon hunters, my hunters had around 6k hp. They would be 2 shot by the aoe. I realized I needed to spend some time and bump up their HP before I can get SV on farm. I got really lucky and cleared SV once it felt like a huge achievement, scoring the cloak and necklace for my paladin in one run was very happy.

    I have tried OHB to no luck, just messed up the paladin boss and forgot to do a full repair before so got 2 tries on that and called it.
    HH dropped and because of the timezone difference I was playing in HH went live around 4am and so I got in 2 runs on the first day. I wiped on the 5th attempt just was too focused on downing the head and he remounted. But have it down pretty well.

    I haven't been spamming HH everyday simply because Bootcamping my Mac opened up a load of new problems for me that left me without a computer for the last 2 days of hotel quarantine. I now have my Mac up and running and have ordered a separate ssd to bootcamp onto for future. Keen to keep trying with this sadly with my realm as dead as it is I think I might focus on the gearing up the tank on another realm as a solo. have to wait and see, but overall have had a lot of fun with this during my lockdown.
