Best Gems for Marksmanship Hunter in MoP Remix

Gems are one of the unique ways to augment your character in MoP Remix, offering offensive, defensive, and utility benefits. On this page, we list the best gems for each type. To learn more about Gems in MoP Remix in general, check out our dedicated page below.

  • Meta Gem: Funeral Pyre Icon Funeral Pyre — Activate with Trueshot Icon Trueshot.
  • Cogwheel Gem: Dark Pact Icon Dark Pact — Most others prefer Blink, but we are mobile already and I recommend Dark Pact to counteract our squishiness.
  • Prismatic Gems: You will have a tremendous amount of stats as you start unlocking all Gem slots, and there is no single best stat to stack. Several Tinker Gems offer huge amounts of secondary stats, and you want to adjust your stats around these. The caps for each stat are 36000 Mastery Rating, ~70% Crit, and ~50% Haste. Tinker Gems are going to bring you to the crit hardcap of 100%, and well past the Haste softcap of 100%. Remaining stats should go into Versatility. The best gems are Perfect Deadly Sapphire Icon Perfect Deadly Sapphire/Perfect Masterful Amethyst Icon Perfect Masterful Amethyst/ Perfect Quick Topaz Icon Perfect Quick Topaz/Perfect Versatile Diamond Icon Perfect Versatile Diamond.
  • Tinker Gems:
    1. Windweaver Icon Windweaver — The group Haste from this is extremely highly tuned.
    2. Enkindle Icon Enkindle
    3. Victory Fire Icon Victory Fire — Very potent for leveling where you reliably killing blow all mobs. Not great for group content.
    4. Lightning Rod Icon Lightning Rod
    5. Slay Icon Slay
    6. Brilliance Icon Brilliance
    7. Incendiary Terror Icon Incendiary Terror + Opportunist Icon Opportunist is a strong combo before you have high Crit levels. Incendiary Terror remains good even without Opportunist.
    8. Wildfire Icon Wildfire
    9. Meteor Storm Icon Meteor Storm + Opportunist Icon Opportunist — Early-game before you get high Crit. Meteor Storm is good alone, too.
    10. Sunstrider's Flourish Icon Sunstrider's Flourish — Benefits hugely from high Crit and Opportunist Icon Opportunist
    11. Explosive Barrage Icon Explosive Barrage
    12. Hailstorm Icon Hailstorm
    13. Memory of Vengeance Icon Memory of Vengeance + Fervor Icon Fervor — Potent combo, but keep in mind that Fervor will do quite a bit of damage to you, so your mileage may vary.
    14. Storm Overload Icon Storm Overload
    15. Brittle Icon Brittle — Extremely powerful on AoE with dying targets. Weak on single-target/raid bosses.
    16. Ankh of Reincarnation Icon Ankh of Reincarnation — If you want a Cheat Death. Optional.
    17. Frost Armor Icon Frost Armor — Defensive, optional.
    18. There are other Tinker Gems, but none stand out in the way that the ones above do. I encourage you to experiment with different combinations, while keeping in mind the strength of the ones listed here.

Leveling Rotation for Marksmanship Hunter

When using our slider, note that some talents may appear sooner than you expect them to in the rotation. This is because we have two recommended builds above, each taking talents at slightly different times, and sometimes entirely different talents.

  1. Use Death Chakram Icon Death Chakram
  2. Use Explosive Shot Icon Explosive Shot
  3. On 3 targets and above, use Multi-Shot Icon Multi-Shot to apply Trick Shots Icon Trick Shots. This buff makes your next Aimed Shot Icon Aimed Shot or Rapid Fire Icon Rapid Fire do AoE damage!
  4. Use Volley Icon Volley on cooldown. Macro Salvo Icon Salvo into it.
  5. Use Trueshot Icon Trueshot for large pulls or difficult elite mobs.
  6. Use Mend Pet Icon Mend Pet for large pulls to keep your pet healthy.
  7. Use Kill Shot Icon Kill Shot on targets below 20% health.
  8. Use Rapid Fire Icon Rapid Fire on cooldown.
  9. Use Aimed Shot Icon Aimed Shot on cooldown. Make sure to spend your Precise Shots Icon Precise Shots stacks first!
  10. Spam Arcane Shot Icon Arcane Shot. Use Multi-Shot Icon Multi-Shot instead if there are 3 or more targets!
  11. Use Steady Shot Icon Steady Shot as a filler.
