A hunter's deadly accuracy doesn't just seem like magic; sometimes, it is.

Arcane Shot is an instant hunter ability learned at level ten for those with the Marksmanship specialization. It is the primary for these hunters to generate Focus.

Notes[]

  • Its instant cast speed makes it useful when it comes to burst damage. It is very useful in PvP and for kiting, where mobility is key.
  • Arcane Shot deals arcane damage which bypasses armor, but can be partially resisted.
  • Though it deals magic damage, Arcane Shot is not considered a spell and gains no benefit from spellpower, spell hit, or spell critical strike.
