Modified by Edit


  • A hunter can activate only one Aspect at a time.
  • Shares a 1-second cooldown with other hunter aspects.
  • The daze downside is very annoying and potentially lethal if used in combat. There are addons that can automatically remove the aspect when you are dazed.
  • Slower than mounts, the shaman's [Ghost Wolf], the druid's [Travel Form], and a rogue's [Sprint].
  • Aspect of the Cheetah does not increase speed if swimming.
  • The movement speed bonus is increased by the [Drums of Speed] item.
