Introduction

On this page, you will find Marksmanship Hunter specific information to deal with each boss in the Sanctum of Domination raid.

This page assumes that you already understand most of the mechanics of each encounter. These can be found on the full raid guide, so what is contained here are details specifically tailored toward Marksmanship Hunter and what you can do to deal with each fight as best as possible.
