Aspect of the Pack is a hunter ability learned at level 56. It increases the party's/raid's movement speed but makes then vulnerable to daze; a group version of Aspect of the Cheetah.

Modified by


  • This ability allows players to get to places faster and move quicker in battle.
  • A handy speed boost indoors (where mounts do not work) especially after instance wipes. Generally, a hunter should wait until the last member of the group enters an area before activating this Aspect; the stragglers will eventually catch up to those in front, who will then get the buff themselves.
  • Though players have access to mounts by level 20, they are not usable in combat like this ability is.
  • Party member(s) will be dazed when hit, which is very annoying and potentially lethal (hence the term "Aspect of the Dazed"). Hunters must be careful when to toggle off this ability as to not slow the party. There are addons that can automatically remove the aspect when someone is dazed.
