Rapid Fire is a hunter ability learned at level 54. It gives the hunter increased ranged attack speed. It also reduces the "casting" time of Steady Shot. By providing faster shooting, it significantly increases damage output for a short period of time; effective use of this ability is central to hunter DPS in groups.
- Whenever possible, pair Rapid Fire with other abilities, items, or effects that increase damage, attack power, armor penetration, or critical strike chance.
- Patch 3.3.3 (2010-03-23): Now triggers the global cooldown correctly.
