PVE Marksmanship Hunter Guide TBC 2.4.3

Game: The Burning Crusade
Content Type: Gaming Guides

Welcome to the Marksmanship Hunter guide for World of Warcraft the Burning Crusade 2.4.3. In this guide, you will learn about playing a Marksmanship Hunter in dungeons and raids. The guide includes Talents, Gems, Enchantments, Gameplay & Skill rotation tips.

Marksmanship Hunter is primarily a PvP spec, but it’s also viable in PvE. Improved Hunter’s Mark and Trueshot Aura will benefit the group, but these bonuses are usually outweighed by Beast Mastery DPS or Survival’s Expose Weakness which is a raid buff. Silencing Shot and Improved Revive Pet can be taken as a personal preference with points from Survival Tree: Monster Slaying or Humanoid Slaying – depending on the one you need the least.

Enchanters can also benefit from Stats on both of the Rings

Leatherworking is great for Hunter. It provides you with Drums of Battle & Drums of War which is often a requirement for guilds while progressing through higher tier content. Also, you can craft armor on every stage of your progression and the Nethercobra Leg Armor enchant.

Engineering is another good option which provides Guns, Ammo, Scope enchants, and Goggles

Combining Engineering and Leatherworking is probably the best choice, assuming you have an alt or gold for the mats.

Gathering professions don’t work so well with Hunters due to their other tracking abilities.

Other options would be:

  • Jewelcrafting can be used to create Figurine – Shadowsong Panther (as starter trinket) and epic gems. Also, jewelcrafting is a better choice if you want to make gold from the profession.
  • Alchemy is used to make the potions, flasks and transmutes lowering your costs consumables while making some extra gold.
  • Enchanting is used to make armor enchants and a unique bonus – Stats

The rotation is Steady Shot – Multi-Shot or Arcane Shot (depending on CDs) and an Auto Attack. Maintain Hunter’s Mark on target and don’t forget to use Kill Command (included in macro) and Rapid Fire. Let’s break it down into sequences:

This rotation also can be managed by the following macro: Note: Replace the “reset=3.0” with your weapons speed + 0.01

#showtooltip Steady Shot
/castsequence reset=3.0 Steady Shot, !Auto Shot
/cast [exists,target=pettarget] Kill Command
/castrandom Arcane Shot, Multi-Shot

Another macro for calling, reviving or healing a pet in 1 button:

/cast [target=pet, dead] Revive Pet;[nopet] Call Pet; Mend Pet

Hit (9%) – Agility – Attack Power – Crit & Haste – Intellect & MP/5

The best pets for raiding in terms of DPS are Cats, Ravagers, and Scorpids. Your pet will require the following skills:

  • Active: Bite, Claw, Gore, Scorpid Poison (depending on which pet you choose)
  • Passive: Avoidance, Cobra Reflexes, Great Stamina
