How To Choose Optimal Hunter Talents

By Wayne Allen

Any veteran of World of Warcraft will relate that hunter talents have changed quite a bit, but what hasn't changed is that all talent specs for the Hunter make them effective at leveling to one extent or another. As a player approaches end-game, however, things get less flexible and tough decisions have to be made between possible specs.

Beast Mastery focuses on making the hunter's pet more powerful. Although all talent trees are good for leveling, BM is considered the best specialization for leveling very quickly. In fact, early specialization in this tree has been called 'easy mode' with the right pet. Obviously, specializing in this talent tree makes a hunter more dependent on his or her pet for success, which can be risky.

As of patch 3.2. 2, BM is not considered to be a great specialization for end-game raiding or player versus player. Even an optimally built, excellently equipped beast mastery Hunter is currently going to fall behind Marksmanship and Survival specialized Hunters.

The Marksmanship talent tree is popular in raiding and great for fighting other players. Specializing at least a little in this talent tree will increase the power of your ranged attacks. This fact makes nearly every hunter put about 14 points in Marksmanship. Maxing out Lethal Shots, Careful Aim, Mortal Shots, and Go for the Throat are considered mandatory in any build.

While Survival isn't popular as a choice for leveling, it's currently one of the most powerful specs for raiding and player versus player. Replenishment gives the raid mana whenever you score a critical hit and Explosive Shot, the final talent in the tree, is fabulous.

The Hunter character is one of the most popular classes in World of Warcraft. There are many different builds that can be utilized through the talent tree. - 30808

Bonsai Tree Pictures

By Elanora Kelly

The word bonsai means "bon planted" where the word bon refers to a pot which is tray-shaped. The tree is mostly to be found in Japan. Unlike other countries, the cultivation of trees is not limited to watering the plant daily alone in Japan, but it also includes proper watering, repotting, as well as shaping the plant in various containers.

The Bonsai species of juniper and maples are strong and hard. These can be grown in the outdoor gardens and in cold climatic zones. Other species of Bonsai should only be grown indoors under constant attention.

In West, the term is used to indicate all the plants which are being cultivated in pots or containers. These plants have a traceable history to as long as the Egyptian civilization which is approximately around 4000 B.C.

These selected branches should be allowed to grow while the rest of the braches should be pruned off. The Bonsai trees are traditionally root bound and the roots will get attached to the base of the container.

The roots should also be pruned off. Root bound species of Bonsai may not survive forever in such a condition. Bonsai trees should be repotted for about two or three years until the roots are furnished with the soil.

Pruning of the branches can be carried out during the spring season. A lot of growth can be shunted by following this procedure. The desirable branches can be wired for controlling the direction of the growth. The wiring of a Bonsai tree requires advanced skill. Gardening manuals are available that offers a detailed description of pruning and wiring of the branches. You will find the manual in a Bonsai tree club who are dedicated to the cause of caring for Bonsai trees.

The amount you need to prune depends heavily on the ideas you have for the bonsai tree. It is always better to have an idea before you start pruning. Keep in mind that all the alterations you are supposed to make are permanently. So, if you cut a small branch that means the branch cut forever.

The fertilizer should be applied when the soil is damp and wet. A common question that every gardener asks is the amount of water to be used for Bonsai trees. There are no specific rules about the amount of water used for gardening. When you notice that the soil is drying out, you should realize that it is time for watering.

There is a huge collection of bonsai trees on the net also where the picture can be downloaded at most of the time free of cost. Even the net has a huge collection of display pictures on various sites where the person can place on order for those display pictures and the display will be delivered to him at his doorstep.

These may be a bit costly than direct modes of purchase as the price includes delivery charges also. Due to the growing demand of bonsai tree pictures many manufactures have shifted to the line of business and at the same time many showrooms have opened specifically for this purpose. - 30808

Winter In - Summer Out - There Are No True Indoor Bonsai

By Lorraine Craymer

Sitting on the magazine table, under the glare of the institutional lighting in my dentist's office, a Juniper bonsai was proudly displayed. I mentioned that it wasn't getting much light to the receptionist and she assured me not to worry because it was, after all, an indoor tree. Too bad she had no idea that there is no such thing. All trees are outdoor trees.

Just because a tree is not cold tolerant enough to survive without protection from the elements, it doesn't mean that it belongs inside. it just needs some temporary protection. Depending on the type of tree you have and where exactly you live, that degree of cold protection will vary.

When you buy a bonsai it's important to understand just how much cold it will tolerate. It's November right now and we haven't had any frost and my leafless Zelkova and Japanese Black Pine are still outside. If we get a mild frost I won't worry. But my Trident Maple is still outside too and that puppy won't like the frost. There are other trees I could grow like a Ficus or a mini jade or a Fukien Tea that would die if they were outside right now- not because they belong inside- just because they hate the cold.

Because Bonsai grow in such small pots, the root balls will freeze solid and the trees will die. Even cold hardy outdoor trees need their roots buried and the added protection of a cold frame. I guess they call them outdoor trees because if you try and winter them in your living room they'll die even faster than being unprotected outside.

But back to the warm weather trees. Do them a favor this year and let them spend as much of the summer outdoors as will be reasonably possible. you will need to do a little more work. You'll absolutely need to take careful steps to manage the twice-a-year transition from one environment to another and you'll need o be sure that out of sight is not out of mind.

In my opinion, no tree suffers more than the Juniper - the most popular of all the bonsai in North America and the one I vote most likely to die - unnoticed - on your coffee table. By all means display it in a place of honor on special occasions, but give it as much time outside as you can manage and introduce something like a seasonal variation to promote more health.

The biggest problem with thinking of your tree as an indoor bonsai is that it implies that dozens of different trees - from a tropical Ficus to a semi-desert loving mini jade and anything in between all like the same conditions. And that just isn't so. Treat your tropical divas like divas and they'll thrive. Treat your desert dwellers like the scrappy little survivors that they are. Let them bathe in real sun (once you acclimate them), but don't forget to bring them back inside before it gets too cold. - 30808
