Tier Sets

  • 2-Set: Arcane Shot and Multi-Shot critical hits cause your next Aimed Shot to cause the target to bleed for 40% of damage dealt over 6 seconds.
  • 4-Set: Ranged auto-attacks have a 15% chance to give your next Arcane Shot or Multi-Shot 100% chance to critically hit.

While the 4-Set is decent in all situations, the 2-Set loses a lot of value in AoE because Aimed Shot applies the bleed on only one target.


The embellishment of the neck Elemental Lariat is one of the strongest for Hunter. It can give you secondary stat depending on which sockets you have equipped.

Blue Silken Lining is also a strong choice for mail users; it gives you Mastery if you are above 90%. This can be, of course, fight-dependent.

The embellishment Allied Legguards of Sansok Khan has a strong potential in Raid and Mythic + because it buffs all your party members with Versatility. However, it can break your 4-Set because it’s only on legs, so try to equip it only if you can.


Hunger of the Pack from Halls of Valor seems a strong choice with the amount of Agility and Critical strike it gives.

Whispering Incarnate Icon can be good if you have some party members that are also using it.

Manic Grieftorch can be strong depending on the fight (remember Uu’nat or SLG, where a lot of people had to die and revive with Ankh or Ancestral Protection Totem.)

Special Bow

Neltharax, Enemy of the sky, is in the loot table of the last boss of the Raid, Razageth the Storm-Eater. It has a special effect that increases your attack speed by 6%, stacking 5 times, and resets if you change target, a powerful item for all BM and MM hunters.
