Best Hunting Specialisation

What is the best specialisation for hunting? No PvP, so just the fastest clear with the least risk of death would be fantastic

    How artied are you/will you be? That's probably going to make a pretty substantial difference.

    I have 0 arties right now because I'm broke but I will eventually be buying some

    I think the first thing to be said for any hunting, is that they all do pretty decently. I'll admit that I haven't hunted as dual cut since the changes to specs, but it was pretty good, and from what I hear they kept it pretty similar. I focus on the other three, because I HATED dual cut with rapiers, and I find the other specs a lot more fun conceptually. I started as 2H, and they do Massive damage. They are a little less defensive than the other specs, but that can be evened out a little with artie armour now. I hunt with warhammer most of the time, but Bastard isn't too much slower. Dual blunt I found to be a middle ground. Flails did a chunk more damage than stars, but stars where faster, so I liked to mix it up depending on what I was fighting. My only complaint with the spec was that I couldn't switch in my SoA and single whirl at targets, which I suppose is as designed, but makes me feel like the singlewhirl skill is kind of a waste. Lastly is SnB, which was AMAZING before the propper nerfs were given to it. Now it has REALLY little damage, but can take a beating like no ones business. Very much a slow and steady choice, that gives a wide range of places you can survive, and eventually work through. I'll admit that all this is based on having a fair amount of defensive arties, and no artie weapons. All in all, I don't think it will matter too much on what spec you want, just how you prefer to feel when bashing.

    If you have rainbow criticals then dual wield anything would make hunting a lot more colourful for you: https://ada-young.appspot.com/pastebin/bU2-xzaN :grin:

    Believe it's generally agreed that 2h is the best until you're artied up and then DwC takes the crown.
