Hunter One-Shot Combo with a Broken Trinket

Recommended Posts


Rextroy spent the last couple of days gearing up his Hunter to Item Level 97. The latest one-shot combo is built around burst damage and the Legion Figurehead of the Naglfar Figurehead of the Naglfar trinket from the Maw of Souls dungeon.



This combo is built around the trinket Figurehead of the Naglfar Figurehead of the Naglfar. This Trinket is obtained in the Legion dungeon Maw of Souls. Only usable by Ranged specializations!

The effect of the trinket is that you debuff an enemy with Taint of the Sea. 30% of all damage you deal to other targets, will be dealt to the tainted one. Up to a solid 7.2k damage.

When you are hitting low level targets, you obtain a damage boost against them. Which means your auto shot will hit an NPC such as the gently squeezed toad for 30k. This will cause the Taint of the Sea to instantly damage the tainted target for 7.2k!

Adding this massive damage boost, ontop of a Marksmanship hunter (who already has a lot of instant damage) will make the result really... deadly

Thanks to the Azerite Trait 'Unerring Vision', I will have a massive crit rate. If my combo of 2x Aimed shot, Reaping Flames, Explosive Shot all crit, along with the Naglfar trinket. My damage is around 23-24k. Even when I only have 15k health myself!

To feel the full potential of this combo, I have to get 3 different stealth items or effects. This will allow me to approach enemies, debuff them and also one shot them without them being able to see me.

We are going to use Invisibility Field (engineering belt enchant) to approach them.

Then we are using a Feign Death and Camouflage combo, to restealth after we used the trinket and Explosive Shot on the enemy.

Lastly, after we used our massive Aimed Shot, Reaping Flame and auto shot combo. We are going to use the Precious Bloodthorn Loop to escape combat!

Here are the most important macros:

/cast fireblood

/use figurehead of the naglfar

/cast explosive shot

/cast feign death

/cast camouflage

This is simply to be able to debuff the enemy at the same time as you restealth

#showtooltip aimed shot

/cast [@player] gently squeezed toad

/target focus


/cast [@focus] aimed shot


First you spawn a toad ontop of yourself (to prepare for later) then you focus your main target. You will start casting Aimed Shot at the main target. Reason we use clear target is so you don't accidently waste your auto shot on it, you need to save it for the toad.

#showtooltip reaping flames

/target belly toad

/cast !auto shot

/castsequence reset=5 [@focus] reaping flames, precious bloodthorn loop

/cast [@focus] reaping flames

Something really interesting here, is that !auto shot will fire an auto shot, while /startattack won't allow it. (Before the reaping flame happens) Seems like /startattack has a really tiny ramp up with ranged weapons. The reason we have a castsequence is so you won't accidently have Precious Bloodthorn loop be casted before your Reaping Flame (which will just lead to it instantly breaking), if you press the button before Aimed Shot finishes casting.

And you want to use it before Aimed Shot finishes. Because Figurehead of the Naglfar will deal less damage if the damage is dealt after the other sources of damage... for some reason

Here's the one-shot in action.

      Are you wondering how your spec performs in Mythic+? Here's a tier list with all specializations!
      In this article, we are taking a look at the tier list for Mythic+ based on the data gathered by Benched.me. The site plots all runs available from the Blizzard API (excluding the Chinese region) on a single ridge plot, so it is different from our Shadowlands Mythic+ Rankings maintained by Petko.
      How the Data is Calculated
      To rank all specializations, Benched.me uses something called Meta Ratio Score. The "ratio" is between the specialization's representation in the meta vs. its representation in the population. For example, a specialization makes up 3% of all players in the population, but 6% in the meta, which means that spec's ratio is 6% / 3% = 2.
      Furthermore, the site defines the "population" as all keys level 2 through 15 and the "meta" as keys 16 and above. Based on that, we break down specs into tiers based on their meta ratio as follows:
      S-Tier: Ratio of at least 1.5. A-Tier: Ratio between 1 and 1.5. B-Tier: Ratio between 0.5 and 1. C-Tier: Ratio below 0.5, but greater than 0. F-Tier: Ratio of 0 (the spec isn't present in the high-level bin at all). Spec Tier List for Mythic+
      Fire Mage - 2.02 ratio Balance Druid - 1.75 ratio Outlaw Rogue - 1.74 ratio Vengeance Demon Hunter - 1.64 ratio A-Tier
      Holy Paladin - 1.37 ratio Restoration Shaman - 1.36 ratio Windwalker Monk - 1.33 ratio Marksmanship Hunter - 1.28 ratio Brewmaster Monk - 1.15 ratio Fury Warrior - 1.14 ratio Discipline Priest - 1.08 ratio Affliction Warlock - 1.08 ratio B-Tier
      Guardian Druid - 0.89 ratio Unholy Death Knight - 0.75 ratio Shadow Priest - 0.73 ratio Havoc Demon Hunter - 0.72 ratio Restoration Druid - 0.71 ratio Blood Death Knight - 0.61 ratio Protection Paladin - 0.53 ratio Holy Priest - 0.5 ratio Elemental Shaman - 0.5 ratio C-Tier
      Enhancement Shaman - 0.47 ratio Protection Warrior - 0.41 ratio Mistweaver Monk - 0.41 ratio Feral Druid - 0.41 ratio Survival Hunter - 0.39 ratio Destruction Warlock - 0.39 ratio Frost Mage - 0.37 ratio Retribution Paladin - 0.35 ratio Assassination Rogue - 0.35 ratio Frost Death Knight - 0.31 ratio Subtlety Rogue - 0.31 ratio Arcane Mage - 0.31 ratio Arms Warrior - 0.30 ratio Demonology Warlock - 0.28 ratio Beast Mastery Hunter - 0.19 ratio

      We finally have 100 Alliance guilds that have taken down Sire Denathrius and cleared Castle Nathria on Mythic difficulty, which means cross-realm Mythic is on its way!
      The final kill occurred around 5:30 CET today, and since the cross-realm feature arrives on the next reset after the 100th kill it might be available to EU players today (this is the very same timing as the Ny'alotha 100th Alliance kill and it was available the same day in EU then, but there were some server issues around that time so we're not 100% sure), while US/OC players might have to wait until their next Tuesday reset. The Hall of Fame: Sire Denathrius (Alliance) achievement and Famed Slayer of Denatrius titles should still be available until the next reset (again, most likely only of US/OC players, given the timing).
      Proud Manlets was the final guild to claim one of the Hall of Fame spots on the Alliance side, and it's taken 29 days for the blue team to catch up to the red.

      You can check out the full Hall of Fame here.
      Thanks to NageK for spotting the final kill!

      Here's another Mythic+ non-meta victory, with a controller using tank finishing up the achievement in the worst Covenant for the spec in M+, in PUGs!
      We look at the log rankings, tier lists and various other optimizations and standings a lot here, so it's also important to point out that you really can get most non-highest end content done with any spec you want. Berub proved this and then some, as they got KSM while tanking as a Blood Death Knight Night Fae, the worst Covenant for M+ for the spec AND used a controller while doing it! And the best part? The reason Berub chose Night Fae is because of the armor looks!

      And while many others have completed KSM with off-meta specs, and some did with a controller as well, the tank + worst Covenant + controller part is especially impressive, and Berub didn't quite mention the control method to the groups, or those runs probably never would have happened at all. Here are some comments from the journey:
      Hopefully examples like this encourage players to try new things and now be quite as limited by the meta, despite it being pretty hard to get into groups, especially for DPS.

      This week's world boss is Mortanis and you can find him in Maldraxxus.
      One of the most studied necromancers of the House of Rituals, Mortanis has been working tirelessly on a means of transforming himself into a more powerful form. Now, he is only a few moments from succeeding.

      Mortanis drops Item Level 207 loot along with various Legendary Power recipes and Conduits. Do not forget to pick the Renown weekly quest for 1,000 Anima before killing Mortanis. We are listing the full loot table below. 

      Memory of Fujieda (Warrior Legendary Power) Memory of Keefer (Monk Legendary Power) Memory of a Guile Charm (Rogue Legendary Power) Band of the Risen Bonelord (Ring) Mortanis's Ribcage (Mail Chest) Bone Crushing Vicegrips (Mail Gloves) Bone-Cleated Footpads (Leather Feet) Spine Crawler Waistcord (Cloth Belt) Shoulderblade Vambraces (Plate Wrists)

      There seem to be some new issues with the EU authentication servers, as many players are unable to log in. So if you're having trouble playing at the moment, don't worry, it's not just you:

      Anyone having issues loggin in (EU)? fix the servers Blizzard have also responded on the matter, but it seems to still be ongoing:
      So we'll just have to wait a bit more, although the issue has been persisting for about an hour now.
