Hunter Artifact weapon
Locked and Loaded: The best Hunter Artifact weapon build paths It’s going to take a long time to fully unlock the Artifact traits of your chosen Artifact weapon, and even longer if you decide to level up more than one weapon at the same time. Just how long will depend on how you play, but you’re looking at several months at a minimum. With that...

Locked and Loaded: Best Hunter talents for leveling and world quests in Legion In Legion, you will be spending a great deal of your time doing things out in the world. First, with leveling to 110 and then doing world quests every day after you reach max level.

Locked and Loaded: Patch 7.0 Legion Hunter guide What Hunter spec should you play in patch 7.0, the lead-in for Legion? What’s the best? Well, it turns out that they’re very close in terms of DPS in the pre-patch. This is a good thing because Beast Mastery, Marksmanship, and Survival are so different from each other that you probably shouldn’t make your decision based...

Locked and Loaded: Legion Hunter glyphs and tomes The glyph system is changing quite a bit in Legion. For starters, there is no longer any distinction between major or minor glyphs because they are 100% cosmetic. Second, glyphs are now consumable, meaning you’ll have to keep stacks of them if you plan on changing them frequently. Lastly, they are now applied directly to...

Locked and Loaded: First look at Hunter legendaries in Legion Legendary items in Legion seem like they will have more in common with Diablo loot than WoW loot. They can be extremely powerful, essentially giving the equivalent of a tier set bonus on a single item, yet their acquisition is going to be completely random. One could drop from a random bear in Highmountain, or...

It’s easy to forget about what’s going on under the hood, such as resources and core mechanics. Today we’re going to talk about what’s up with Hunter resources and how that...




Hellfire Citadel hunter
Legion: Marksmanship Hunters get their pet back Marksmanship Hunters will be getting their pet back in a future alpha build, Celestalon wrote today. While it didn’t make it into today’s alpha update, it was important enough for Celestalon to mention it on the forums so that alpha testers can take it into account regarding new feedback. We don’t have any sort of...

Locked and Loaded: Legion alpha Hunter updates We’re now about three months into Legion alpha testing the Hunter class, so I thought it would be worthwhile to revisit each spec and see what has changed since my initial first impression columns (Survival, Marksmanship, Beast Mastery). This week’s build in particular comes with some exciting changes for Marksmanship.



Locked and Loaded: First impressions of Marksmanship in Legion Are you ready to give up your pets on your Hunter? That is what the new Marksmanship spec in Legion will ask of you. No, I’m not talking about the Lone Wolf talent. There is no option to summon your pets at all if you play Marksmanship in Legion. Pets are the primary reason I...

We found out we’re getting the biggest overhaul yet, and I think the reaction to the changes has been mostly positive. We all have questions or concerns about certain details, but most seem to agree that things are headed in a good direction. To address some of those concerns,...

They start with identifying the core class fantasy with four distinct elements: masters trackers, master snipers, master trappers and tamers of wild beasts . Unfortunately, all three specs incorporate all those elements to one degree or another. In Legion,...
