Shooting in {{wow-inline}} ''[[World of Warcraft]]'' is not that much different from other [[MMORPG]] games. A player with the ability to shoot in most cases moves to maximum range and then fires his [[ranged weapon]]. Shooting is very useful for finishing off an opponent or dealing damage while avoiding the same. Some classes, most notably, the [[Hunter]], depend heavily on ranged weapons and dealing damage from afar with the same.
 
   
Most ranged weapons (bows, guns, wands, etc.) also have a [[minimum range]] where they cannot be fired if too close to the target. This mechanic may be fully removed in {{Mists-inline}} Mists of Pandaria.{{fact}}

Notes

Shooting in WoW Icon 16x16 World of Warcraft is not that much different from other MMORPG games. Players with the ability to shoot in most cases move to maximum range and then fire a ranged weapon. Shooting is very useful for finishing off an opponent or dealing damage while avoiding the same.

Most ranged weapons (bows, guns, wands, etc.) also had a minimum range where they could not be fired if too close to the target. This mechanic was fully removed in Mists-Logo-Small Mists of Pandaria.

In World of Warcraft, there are two types of Shoot: one for wands and one for all other ranged weapons (usable by IconSmall Rogue Rogues and IconSmall Warrior Warriors). The latter ability was removed and only the one for wands remains.

IconSmall Hunter Hunters do not have this ability. They have [Auto Shot] instead.
