Notes About This Class

  • The Hunter is the only class to start with a bow, which gives it an early long-ranged option that the other starting classes won't have access to initially.  When you find the early game merchant arrows and other necessities will be easily accessible.


Builds That Use This Class

  • Desterity-based builds are a great go-to for this class.

        This class is tied for cheapest class to level up to equip the BKH. However as it has a bow, I pick this class for my BKH runs, as the free bow allows me to easily cheese the left side of the Bed of Chaos without needing to buy a bow.

        Both the Warrior class, and the Hunter class, cost 15,657 souls to equip the BKH. This is the lowest amount of souls required to equip the BKH, out of all the available classes.

        So the class isn't completely useless. A free bow and arrows makes it naturally easier to complete the BoC without needing to purchase anything, and it's still tied for first place in terms of BKH affordability.

          I was going to suggest that it'd be good for using buffs on the Balder Side Sword or something similar, but it looks like the sorcerer or wanderer would be better for that too.
