General Information

Welcome to our Marksmanship Hunter guide for World of Warcraft — Battle for Azeroth (BfA) 8.3. Here, you will learn how to play as a Marksmanship Hunter in both raids and Mythic+ dungeons: from the very beginning to maximizing your DPS.

If you were looking for WoW Classic content, please refer to our Classic DPS Hunter guide.

1.

Marksmanship Hunter Overview

Marksmanship is the least mobile Hunter spec, as it is the only spec that has to deal with long cast times during which you cannot move. From a playstyle perspective, Marksmanship is relatively simple with only a few central abilities you must understand to play the spec optimally.

Patch 8.3 Changes for Marksmanship Hunter

There are no changes that are specific to Marksmanship Hunters in Patch 8.3. However, we do have:

Viability of Specs

On this page, we will attempt to give a full picture of what the 3 Hunter specs are good at and when you might want to use them. Generally speaking, all the specs are competitive enough that you can play whichever one you prefer from a playstyle perspective. On this page, we will try to be as objective as possible when determining which spec is the best. To determine this, we will use simulations, intuition and occasionally WarcraftLogs Data to try and get a full picture.

3.1.

Spec Viability in Practice, Strengths and Weaknesses

In this section, we will look at some of the perks and downsides of the different specs in raids and Mythic+.

3.1.1.

Beast Mastery

  • Strongest single-target and AoE damage.
  • Strongest pet utility and defensive capabilities.
  • Dependence on pet AI can be annoying.
  • Full mobility.
3.1.2.

Marksmanship

  • High burst-damage.
  • Very strongly tied to ability cooldowns which can make it inflexible in very short-term burst situations.
  • Almost fully mobile.
3.1.3.

Survival

  • Very strong single-target damage.
  • Versatile builds that allow for very good cleave or very good single-target.
  • Can only do one thing really well at the same time.
3.2.

What Is The Best Spec?

3.2.1.

Single-Target/Raiding

All of the specs are close to equal in this respect.

3.2.2.

Cleave/AoE/Mythic+

  1. Beast Mastery;
  2. Marksmanship;
  3. Survival.
3.2.3.

Utility/Defensives

Beast Mastery can provide Spirit Mend Icon Spirit Mend to you and your allies which is a powerful self-heal, and various utility through its pets.

Marksmanship does not often use a pet, and it does not have Spirit Mend Icon Spirit Mend at all.

Survival lies somewhere between Marksmanship and Beast Mastery. While it does not have Spirit Mend, it can use any pet type for any situation just like Beast Mastery (with the exception of Exotic Beasts, but these do not provide anything uniquely useful).
