  1. The description for the Yellow line Hunter is incorrect. It states, "Yellow Line Hunter Guide - Starter Build, Trait Analysis, and Gameplay by Louey7 (2020-09-15) - This guide takes an in depth look at the red line for _Burglar_, including..." The word "Burglar" should be replaced with "Hunter".

  2. Two of the descriptions above state "Burgular" instead of Hunter

    1. Thanks, I have those fixed! (The problem with reformatting and editing these all in bulk, issues like that seem to pop up)

  3. Louey, a quick commment: under 'Spec & Roles' and 'Hunter Builds' the roles of red and blue being stand-still and mobile are switched. Hope this helps :)
