WoW in Real Life: Hunters

Welcome to part three of my answer to the question: What WoW spells/abilities would you want in real life, if you could only have one?

As always, feel free to leave a comment with your own idea.

One of the problems with hunters (and rogues and warriors) is that their abilities are primarily physcial, and therefore things you already CAN do in real life (theoretically). You can grab a gun and shoot it, or a bow, or crossbow. And you can shoot faster, or add poison or explosives. This means that this piece is not as strong as some of the others.

Anyways, my personal first pick is: Tame Beast. As long as you can survive twenty seconds of holding your hands out at an animal within 30 yards of you, it will be your best friend forever. Sure, it might be a tiny bit difficult to tame a bear or lion, but you can get something smaller, like a chipmunk or your neighbor's cat to like you more.

Number two is: Track Humanoids. This is admittedly a stalkerish ability, but it could be very helpful. The military would love this because they wouldn't have to do sweeps of rooms. Just fly someone down a street and they can read all the buildings AND determine whether or not the people inside are friendly, neuterual or hostile.

Finally, Track Beasts. It doesn't have quite the same utility as the previous, but it could be helpful for exterminators or RL hunters.
