Return of Trueshot Aura
In Wrath of the Lich King, the Marksmanship hunters will return with a bang.
We’ll change Silencing Shot to be a proper interrupt (PvE).
Trueshot Aura will now be raid wide.
The announcement was made in the Wrath of the Lich King beta forums yesterday. Both the 31-point and 41-point talents will no longer be sub-par to the other trees.
Trueshot Aura will most likely remain unstackable, but this provides the opportunity for the few Marksmanship hunters still running around to provide a raid-worthy buff. One Marksmanship hunter per raid? That’s good enough for me since I’m the only one in my guild running as a full marksman.
A lot of people had begun to shy away from Silencing Shot. I stand by my judgment. It is still a very useful shot, and not taking it removes one of the appeals of the tree. I’m not sure what is a “proper interrupt”, but I’ll take it as a good thing if they are fixing it.
In addition, the new talents Wild Quiver and Rapid Recuperation will change in the upcoming beta build. Now if only we had a beta account to try all these new shiny things out.
