Don't like its damage now, and in 5.4 our Arcane Shot is getting a semi-buff, so is Aimed worth it? And if so, should we waste a glyph slot on it?

Only use it when it proccs off steady shot. With the focus change to arcane shot in 5.4 you'll be doing more steady shots anyway.
Hardcasting it is still a dps loss even in pve add the los'ing in pvp and it's a even bigger loss, compared to arcane shot spam.

don't waste a glyph slot on it

use it in your opener ie when your target is above 80% health and whenever it procs. its damage is barely higher than arcane shot's damage on ptr right now

Thanks folks. What would you suggest instead of it as a glyph slot? Camo?
And as an opener, wouldn't powershot be the better variant?

Sorry, just trying to figure out MM hunters here.

I usually go with spirit bond, exp trap and camo or master's call, it depends on what you meet and what class you play with.

Aimed Shot gets a bunch of extra crit chance if the enemy is above 80%, that's why you don't start with power shot.

But yea, it's really terrible otherwise.

Keep in mind that you can't autoshot while casting it.

could u imagine if powershot still hit hard and was on careful aim?

could u imagine

also i think haiyah meant glyph of animal bond, it increases healing done to you by 10% as long as your pet is out and alive

Thanks Russet, I was aware of the crit chance increase, I thought powershot still had a better damage/focus ratio though. Thank you for letting me know!

it gives you 75% additional crit, so your aimed shots are pretty much guaranteed crits

aimed shot crit >>>>> powershot noncrit

Thrill of the hunt will be even more valuable than it ever has been this expansion so fervor is pretty much out. There were times when Thrill of the hunt is pretty useless like during rapid fire when you have extra focus but now even with thrill up its still worth using arcane shot at or near full focus.

And I agree with Crit>Haste>Mastery for MM the mastery is just to weak currently.

Crit->Mastery->Haste feels just better.I tested both on PTR in some Duels/Wargames and BG's.

Sometimes I get up to 30k Wild Quiver Crits and they do come alot with Mastery as second stat.

Rly the DMG of MM on the ptr is compareable with the DMG of BM's at the start of 5.3.It's a bit too much I think.

Are you using 522 gear? Remember that base resil hasn't been increased yet, but it will clearly need to be increased before the patch hits (we're beating on 65% with 496 gear right now, 65% w/ 522 gear would be horrendous).

Not really. Fervor gives you a total of 100 focus, and to your pet. It's on demand and can be used for at least the same amount of arcane shots or even tranq shots, aimed shots or chimera depending on your situation.

The timing of TotH is RNG and only saves you 60 focus (it's not completely free in 5.4) for 3 arcane shots only.

Fervor is still more than viable, especially as MM.

yeah, i definitely like fervor, but i think toth vs. fervor is still a preference thing. i hate rng, so i use fervor. if you like passives/don't want more buttons, toth isn't a bad choice

I like the spider agains't melee but a lot of Hunters also uses birds for the disarm. Fox/Goat agains't caster-cleaves.
