Ability hunter lockandload
  • Lock and Load
  • Your Explosive Shot triggers no cooldown and costs no Focus.
  • Duration: 12 seconds

Lock and Load is a passive Clearcasting-type hunter ability learned at level 43 for hunters who have chosen the Survival specialization. When it activates, it allows the hunter's next two [Explosive Shot]s to be fired with no cooldown (though it still invokes the global cooldown) and no focus cost. It is similar to the warlock talent, Nightfall, in that it can be activated by a DoT.

Notes

  • When this triggers, it does not end the cooldown of Explosive Shot. The Lock and Load buff lasts for 12 seconds.
  • Remember to not instantly smash all Explosive Shots when this triggers, since the DoTs will overwrite each other, significantly reducing the overall damage.

Patch changes

  • Wrath-Logo-Small/Cataclysm-Logo-Small Patch 4.0.1 (12-Oct-2010): Description changed from:
    You have a X% chance when you trap a target with Freezing Trap, Freezing Arrow or Frost Trap and a Y% chance when you deal periodic damage with your Immolation Trap, Explosive Trap or Black Arrow to cause your next 2 Arcane Shot or Explosive Shot spells to trigger no cooldown, cost no mana and consume no ammo. This effect has a 22 sec cooldown.
    To:
    You have a X% chance when you trap a target with Freezing Trap or Ice Trap to cause your next 2 Arcane Shot or Explosive Shot abilities to cost no Focus and trigger no cooldown. Effect lasts for 12 sec.
    ...and went from 3 ranks to 2.
  • Wrath-Logo-Small Patch 3.2.0 (04-Aug-2009):
    • Now has a 22 second cooldown. The Lock and Load effect cannot be obtained on targets immune to snare effects when Frost Trap is used.
    • The tooltip for this talent has been updated to indicate that it also works with Explosive Trap.
  • Wrath-Logo-Small Patch 3.1.2 (2009-05-19): The tooltip has been corrected to display its actual chance to occur.
  • Wrath-Logo-Small Patch 3.1.0 (14-Apr-2009): Re-designed: You now have a 33/66/100% chance when you trap a target with Freezing Trap, Freezing Arrow or Frost Trap and a 2/4/6% chance when you deal periodic damage with your Immolation Trap or Black Arrow to cause your next 2 Arcane Shot or Explosive Shot spells to trigger no cooldown, cost no mana and consume no ammo. This now has a new spell effect and sound.
                Prior to this, it could proc off of Serpent Sting's periodic damage, and any trap.
