Welcome to the Method Marksmanship guide written by me, Cruelladk. I’m a french player and streamer. I raided with Impact and From Scratch and am now a raider for Method.
Marksmanship hunter has high mobility since Aimed Shot is the only cast you have to stand in place. This class also grants a bunch of utilities such as Binding Shot, Tar Trap, Freezing Trap, Intimidation, Misdirection, and Primal Rage, as well as an immunity Aspect of the Turtle. This spec also has a really strong AoE burst.
The weakness of this spec is that you need at least 3 targets for your Multi-Shot to trigger Trick Shots to start doing AoE damage; basically, the spec is also weak outside of its cooldowns. Hunter is also one of the weakest classes in terms of defensive cooldowns.
