PvE Hunter TBC rotation, cooldowns, abilities

Generally, Beast Mastery Hunters have a very simple rotation. One, in fact, that can be predominantly maintained through the use of one macro with a few key abilities tossed in to increase our DPS.

Currently, on Beta, the following macro does not function properly due to in-game mechanics. However, I feel it’s important to understand what people mean when they mention a Hunter’s macro.

  • #showtooltip Steady Shot
  • /script UIErrorsFrame:Hide()
  • /castsequence reset=# Steady Shot, !Auto Shot
  • /cast [exists,target=pettarget] Kill Command
  • /script UIErrorsFrame:Clear(); UIErrorsFrame:Show()

As Beta is all about testing, for both players and developers, more and more Hunters are bound to try to recreate this one-button macro.

Until then, here are some key abilities to be aware of:

  • Hunter’s Mark (Should ALWAYS be up on your target)
  • Serpent Sting or Scorpid Sting (Depending on the needs of your group)
  • Aimed Shot (If you are facing a mob/boss that does heal or gets healed – an example of this may be Watchkeeper Gargolmar in Hellfire Ramparts)
  • Steady Shot (This will be most of your rotation being spammed)
  • Kill Command (Because this relies on a critical strike, it’s recommended to use whenever you can – especially since it doesn’t affect the Global Cooldown)
  • Bestial Wrath (This allows your pet to increase its damage by 50% for 18 seconds and become immune to various Crowd Control methods!)
  • Rapid Fire (Increases our attack speed by 40% on a 3-minute cooldown)

This macro is now dead. It no longer works on the TBC Beta.
