This is another one for my non-WoW-playing readers.
One of the distinctive things hunters have, besides their pets, is the trapping ability. Hunters learn to lay down traps that can do a variety of things: explode in a single burst of damage, keep exploding every few seconds for a while, unleash poisonous snakes, chill an area so that enemies moving in it must slow down, and so on. But the bread-and-butter trap for most hunters is the Freezing Trap. Here's Tivara laying one down:
The trap lasts for a couple of minutes, and goes off if any enemy gets within a few yards of it. And when that happens, there's a sudden puff of frost, and this:
Fwoosh! That naga's not going anywhere for twenty seconds, unless one of us damages him, by accident or on purpose. That's the hunter version of crowd control, often abbreviated "cc". When I say that I did a lot of cc on a run with friends, what I mean is that I did a lot of stuff like that. Which is very fun.
