Hello! Welcome back to WoW! Let us get you started with how you should be playing your Hunter, shall we?Talents!
You should be running something like this
(Please do note the glyphs used)Shot Rotation:
Kill Shot (When Available) > Serpent Sting > Explosive Shot > Black Arrow > Aimed Shot > Steady Shot
Note: Always start off with a Serpent Sting, in the spec I noted above I have 3 talent points in Noxious Stings
, meaning that ALL your attacks will do 3% more damage when Serpent Sting is active.Gear!
(Is that your bow? or are you just happy to see me?)
For choosing your gear, look for gear that is Mail, or Leather that gives you Agility, and Intellect on some occasions.
Agility: This is a Hunters bread and butter. 1 Agility = 1ap, Crit and Dodge.
When you start gemming your gear, you want to gem strictly Agility.
Meta: Relentless Earthsiege Diamond
(Also pick up a Nightmare Tear
, throw it in a Blue Socket. This counts as 1 of each color gem so your Meta Socket will work.)
Use RED gems...
For gear BELOW item level 226: Delicate Scarlet Ruby
For gear ABOVE item level 226: Delicate Carinal Ruby
(You do not have to match socket bonuses, you will gimp your DPS by doing so, gem strictly Agility for the max dps)
TIME YOUR COOLDOWNS:
- If you proc Lock n' Load, and you have a trinket that has a "use" to boost your AP, use it then so you can get the max DPS and damage out of that LnL proc.
MOVE AS LITTLE AS POSSIBLE:
- Do not move unless you completely have to, your Sniper Training buff is needed as much as possible.
