Tips and tactics

  • Scatter Shot is useful for spell/ability disruption, as well as a disorient when attempting to flee. Consider using with [Aspect of the Cheetah] for an immediate speed boost, though be mindful of the daze effect if struck.
  • To avoid fighting an unwanted mob, using this shot and running out of melee range can help. Using [Feign Death] once far enough away will de-aggro the mob, causing it to reset.
  • This, sometimes used in conjunction with [Freezing] or [Frost Trap], can close the distance when chasing a mob or player.

Patch changes

  • Cataclysm-Logo-Small Patch 4.1.0 (26-Apr-2011): Scatter Shot's disorient effect should no longer sometimes be broken by the hunter's Auto Shot.
  • Wrath-Logo-Small / Cataclysm-Logo-Small Patch 4.0.1 (12-Oct-2010): No longer talented, available to all hunters.
  • Bc icon / Wrath-Logo-Small Patch 3.0.2 (14-Oct-2008): Scattershot has been moved from the Marksmanship Tree to Tier 3 of the Survival Tree.
  • Bc icon Patch 2.1.2 (2007-06-19): This ability will now trigger Thrill of the Hunt.
  • Bc icon Patch 2.1.0 (22-May-2007): This ability will now trigger Kill Command when it critically strikes.
  • WoW Icon 16x16 / Bc icon Patch 2.0.1 (05-Dec-2006): "Scatter Shot" will now properly do damage even if the target is immune to the confuse effect.
  • WoW Icon 16x16 Patch 1.7.0 (13-Sep-2005): Should now cancel combat mode when used. The tooltips for quick Hunter shots have been updated to show them as instant abilities.
  • WoW Icon 16x16 Patch 1.5.0 (2005-06-07): Special ability shots no longer add the ranged weapon speed or take into account ranged weapon haste when determining the actual cooldown. The tooltip and cooldown timers should now properly reflect the actual cooldown.
  • WoW Icon 16x16 Patch 1.4.0 (2005-05-05): Now usable while moving and no longer interrupts ranged combat. Now properly reduces the ranged attack power contribution by the percent modifier.
