General Information

Welcome to our Marksmanship Hunter DPS guide for World of Warcraft Legion 7.3. Here, you will learn everything you need to know about playing a Marksmanship Hunter in a raid environment and in Mythic+ dungeons.

About Our Author

This guide has been written by Azortharion, the main theorycrafter of the spec. He is also an accomplished player who raids in Solaris. You can also watch his stream on Twitch.

1. Class Overview

Marksmanship is the least mobile, highest-damage Hunter spec, and the most optimal raiding and Mythic+ spec in the Tomb of Sargeras. Damage output is its biggest strength, with strong utility in abilities like Bursting Shot Icon Bursting Shot to sweeten the deal.

2. What Has Changed in 7.3?

  • The Porcupine family of pets has been renamed to "Rodent".

Marksmanship has two set bonuses available in the Tomb of Sargeras from the Wildstalker armor set. They are as follows:

  • 2-piece set bonus: Casting 2 Aimed Shot Icon Aimed Shots in a row increases your critical strike damage by 15% for 6 seconds.
  • 4-piece set bonus: Aimed Shot Icon Aimed Shot reduces the cast time and focus cost of your next Aimed Shot Icon Aimed Shot by 8% for 6 seconds. This practically applies indefinitely, whenever you cast Aimed Shot, unlike the MKII Gyroscopic Stabilizer Icon MKII Gyroscopic Stabilizer glove effect that has the same type of wording.

3. How Does it Work?

  • Focus is the primary resource. It is generated passively at a base rate of 10 Focus per second. The spammable ability Arcane Shot Icon Arcane Shot generates 8 focus per cast as well.
  • Aimed Shot Icon Aimed Shot is the main ability. It is a 2-second cast that cannot be cast while moving. Its damage is vastly amplified by Vulnerable Icon Vulnerable, and trying to achieve as many casts with Vulnerable active is the bread and butter of the spec.
  • Marked Shot Icon Marked Shot deals moderate damage and applies Vulnerable. It can only be cast when Hunter's Mark is active, which is activated by casting Arcane Shot Icon Arcane Shot with a a Marking Targets proc. Marking Targets proc come from auto-shots.
  • Arcane Shot Icon Arcane Shot generates 8 Focus per cast and deals low damage. It is the filler ability of the spec when not using Sidewinders Icon Sidewinders which replaces it. It generates the Focus needed to execute the rotation, and it provides you with procs that will allow you to activate Vulnerable. Its multi-target equivalent is Multi-Shot Icon Multi-Shot.
  • Trueshot Icon Trueshot is an extremely powerful cooldown that vastly increases your Haste and causes all Arcane Shot Icon Arcane Shot to activate Hunter's Mark Icon Hunter's Mark. With 13 points in the Artifact, it also increases critical strike bonus damage by 50%. There are set bonuses, trinkets and legendaries that reduce the cooldown of this ability. Using it effectively is extremely important.
  •  Icon Windburst deals heavy damage on a 20-second cooldown and applies Vulnerable. It costs 20 Focus and serves as a gap-filler or simply an additional round of Vulnerable every 20 seconds.

4. Viability of Spec Choices in Patch 7.2.5

Marksmanship has the strongest single-target and AoE damage output of all three hunter specs, but it is quite limited by movement which can be problematic in the hands of less experienced players, but the damage benefits it brings to Mythic raids in particular makes it worth learning and optimizing. It is also best for Mythic+ due to its AoE damage potential, and solid utility with Bursting Shot Icon Bursting Shot. It is generally the strongest spec for all fights in Tomb of Sargeras, being closely rivaled by Survival on Harjatan, and Beast Mastery on Maiden of Vigilance and Fallen Avatar.

Beast Mastery generally does the least damage of all the Hunter specs, but it does not suffer from movement at all which makes it excellent if you are new to raiding and whatever content you are doing. It has good short-term single-target bursts which can make it really strong on fights where this is important, such as the Maiden of Vigilance boss. In Mythic+, it can bring both Bloodlust Icon Bloodlust / Heroism Icon Heroism as well as battle ressurrections to your group using its pets, and its single-target burst comes in handy for dungeons like Upper Karazhan where there is not much AoE either. Its strongest fights are the Maiden of Vigilance and Fallen Avatar because of the respectively bursty, and movement-heavy nature of these encounters.

Survival has the second-best single-target potential of the three Hunter specs, and while it lacks in sustained AoE damage, it has excellent burst AoE using its Butchery Icon Butchery ability, and great AoE crowd control abilities through Caltrops Icon Caltrops AoE slow, battle-ress and Bloodlust Icon Bloodlust/Heroism Icon Heroism with pets, and enhanced traps across the board. In the aggregate, it is a competitive spec in the right hands, gaining a lot with a well-executed rotation, but also being a tad unforgiving and punishing when not played close to optimally. Due to this, in reality, it is often on par with Beast Mastery for single-target, due to the latter's ease of play compared to Survival. Its strongest fights are burst AoE-heavy ones such as Harjatan and the Demonic Inquisition.

Below you will also find simulations for single-target and multi-target potential output of all the specs with different setups of legendaries and talents. Remember to read simulations in general with a grain of salt.

4.2. Raiding — Single-Target Focus with AoE as a secondary objective.

  1. Marksmanship
  2. Beast Mastery for ease of play and Ranged. Survival for higher potential and Melee.

4.3. Mythic+ — AoE Focus with single-target as a secondary objective.

Keep in mind that on high-level Tyrannical-affix keystones, single-target can sometimes be considered the #1 priority for Mythic+.

  1. Marksmanship
  2. Beast Mastery
  3. Survival

5. Strengths

  • Highest damage potential of all specs in almost all situations.
  • Different talents amplify different strengths (stacked/spread out AoE).

6. Weaknesses

  • Limited in mobility, maximizing casts while doing mechanics is very important and can be difficult.
  • Less consistent damage from attempt to attempt due to unavoidable RNG.

  • 28 Jun. 2017 (rotation page): Updated the rotation and simplified it in many places, removed mentions of stuff that is now irrelevant and reordered some priorities to be easier to interpret and use in practice.

Removed "Trinket to look for section" and other sections that are now invalidated or no longer useful, to pave the path for something new in Tomb of Sargeras.
