wotlk classic pve marksmanship hunter best in slot (bis) & pre raid gear

Equipment will be the main source of your character’s power, contributing the biggest bulk of your stats. It is therefore very important that you choose the correct equipment for each slot — commonly referred to as “best in slot” equipment – in order to maximize your power.

This guide will help you choose the best equipment possible for each phase, but also the best equipment you can find outside of raids, known as “pre-raid” gear or “pre-BiS”.

Alternative / Engineering: Truesight Ice Blinders

This will be your best option for this slot.

Alternative / Hit: Sphere of Red Dragon’s Blood

If you’re short on hit rating, you could temporarily use Sphere of Red Dragon’s Blood over Mirror of Truth.

Alternative / Dual-wield: The Key & Crypt Lord’s Deft Blade

These 2 options are roughly the same.

Alternative: Titanium Compound Bow

This will be your best option for this slot.

This combination of trinkets will be your best option.

Alternative / Incredible loot luck: Betrayer of Humanity
Alternative / Incredible loot luck: Silent Crusader x2

The alternatives listed above are technically better than Black Ice. However, they’ll be extremely highly contested by melee DPS players, who generally get a higher use out of them than you do. If you find yourself in the extremely fortunate position where all your melee DPS have already grabbed as many as they need and you can take one of them as a Hunter, go for it — but don’t be greedy! Let the “hunter weapon” meme die!

This will be your best option for this slot.

This is a better pre bis option for ranged weapon
This is a better P1 bis item for ranged weapon, we dont use Tier set due to bad itemization – Grim Toll is extremely bad to use early until you are able to get softcap Darkmooncard Greatness is BiS and often remains BiS until Phase 3 though costly. looking for drops FoTFF
is still far better to use though would not recommend it, it’s rather weak for its item level.
Black Ice is named as the most reasonable option, but that would have to be Journey’s End only contested by feral druids and other hunters, and not far off of Betrayer statwise

Surge Needle BiS too, as we’ve established, crit > haste by quite a bit

Why do you take the dragon’s belt? This is a leathercraft recipe that only drops in Ulduar. And as far as I know Ulduar is not accessible in Phase1. Or did I miss something there?
