Gearing a Marksmanship Hunter

Welcome to our Gearing Page for Marksmanship Hunter, this section will cover everything you need to know about equipping your character correctly.

For more detailed information on Stat Priority, please visit our Stats page.

For more detailed information on Gems and Enchants, please visit our Gems and Enchants page.

We also have a page dedicated to simulations for different aspects of your character. These can be found on our Simulationspage.


The Importance of "Simming Yourself" as a Marksmanship Hunter

At this stage in the game, and despite the stat priority, there are so many variables and so many layers of optimization that you can apply to your character, that there is no way for a guide or anything else to tell you exactly what gear you should wear. This is why we always recommend simulating your own character using Raidbots. The website can help you choose items, trinkets, Legendaries, Enchants/Gems, and even Covenants, Soulbinds Conduits, and so on.



Thanks to, a comprehensive list of available trinkets for Marksmanship are listed against each other below. Keep in mind that this is only a guideline, and that you should be simming your own character if you care about optimizing it.

Many people have a tendency to overthink the distribution of their secondary stats. An important thing to remember is that a higher quantity of stats is nearly always better than a better quality of stats. Because of this, wearing higher item level gear with worse stats tends to be better than lower item level gear with great stats. Keep this in mind when considering gear.
