Legion Beta: Marksmanship Hunter Talents and Abilities

Tier 15

  • Black Arrow -- Fires a Black Arrow at the target doing damage over time. 
  • Momentum --When any of your attacks cause a critical striked there is a chance the cooldown of disengage will be reduced by 10%. 
  • True Aim -- For every successive Arcane, Marked or Aimed Shot used to attack the same target, those shots deal 2% more damage to the target, stacking up to 20 times, can only affect one target at a time.  Delirium's Note: I really don't like this talent. While the top hunters in the world will of course sacrifice their own DPS to benefit their raid, most will not.  Talents and our rotation in general should reward us for playing well, not for tunneling on the boss the whole fight.

Tier 30:

  • Posthaste -- Disengage also frees you from all movement impairing effects and increases your movement speed by 60% for 8 seconds. 
  • Farstrider -- Disengage now has 2 charges.

PvP Talent Tree:

MM hasn't really been viable for PvP in the last couple of seasons.  With the huge changes to how honor is working in legion, along with the revamping of the specs, so far, at least, MM is looking like a fun PvP spec, giving hunters and option for a very high risk, high reward playstyle.  I'm really excited to take it into some BGs and Arenas, if I ever make it into the Legion Alpha/Beta.
