From Eternal Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Spec


Pros:

High burst damage.

Control and massive utility with Readiness.

Only spec with an interrupt (Silencing Shot).

The “Cookie Cutter” PvP spec.


Cons:

Mediocre sustained damage on Plate.


Pet

Cunning would be your best bet, combining survival and damage abilities.


Race Choosing

The best race for a hunter for either PvE and PvP is Worgen. +1% critical chance and Darkflight(+40% speed for 10 sec with a 2 min CD)


Gear

  • Important*Reforging and Stat Weights:

MM: Hit (until you are at the 5% hit cap)> Agility > Crit > Mastery > Haste.

For Marks and SV, reforge your Haste/Mastery into Crit where you can. Do not drop below 5% hit.


Enchants

Head – Arcanum of Vicious Agility

Shoulders – Greater Inscription of Vicious Agility

Back – Enchant Cloak – Greater Spell Piercing

Chest – Enchant Chest – Peerless Stats or Enchant Chest – Might Resilience(Poor hunter’s enchant)

Bracer – Enchant Bracer – Agility or Enchant Bracer – Critical Strike(Poor hunter’s enchant)

Gloves – Enchant Gloves – Mastery or Heavy Savage Armour Kit(Poor hunter’s enchant) Engineers get Synapse Springs

Waist – Ebonsteel Belt Buckle(Gem with 40+agi)

Pants – Dragonscale Leg Armour or Charscale Leg Armour – Choice between offensive/defensive, though I would go with Charscale because of how well Agi scales.

Feet – Enchant Boots – Assassin’s Step or Enchant Boots – Earthen Vitality(Poor hunter’s enchant) *NOTE*: We’re using movement speed enchants on the feet because we’ll be using the Agile Shadowspirit Diamond Meta.

2h – Pyrium Weapon Chain

Ranged – Gnomish X-Ray Scope


Gems

In full PvP gear, you will have 1 meta, 3 red slots, 3 blue slots, 3 yellow slots and 1 prismatic. You’re also going to want ~170 Spell penetration so your magical shots and some damaging shots wont get resisted.

Meta slot – Agile Shadowspirit Diamond

Red slot – (JC)Delicate Chimera’s Eye – (Non-JC) Delicate Inferno Ruby

Blue slot – Stormy Ocean Sapphire and 1 Shifting Demonseye

Yellow slot – With the changes in 4.1, hunters generally wont be gemming yellow slots with resilience, rather they will use Deadly Ember Topaz



Useful addons

- LoseControl – Helps you to see CC better. It will place an icon in the middle of the screen of the CC that is currently affecting you and a timer on how long it’ll last. Also has icons/timers for party frames, and target/focus frames. A must have.

- OmniCC – This addon put a timer on your targets debuffs and on your cooldowns, allowing you to see more specifically how long you have left on a Scatter Shot cooldown, or how much time you have left on serpent sting etc. Absolute must have addon.

- TellMeWhen - It'll help you to see your procs better. Easy setup, IMO.
