Hunters are light, fast warriors that shun the heaviest armor. Their agility and training afford them many defensive maneuvers and the use of a large variety of weapons. To survive in the wild, Hunters have learned to be the masters of deadly shots with bow or gun, as well as expert trappers. Their swiftness and expertise with ranged weapons is a sight to be seen. And their abilities only further the effectiveness of such weapons.

Abilities tables

The Hunter can purchase abilities and learn their abilities from their class trainers. Most active pet abilities are unique and come along with the pet, which can be enhanced via Beast Training. Hunters can learn from Pet Trainers, to receive more options and passive abilities, which they then can train to their pets via Beast Training.
