Functionality

Silencing Shot is a instant shot that deals 50% of ranged weapon damage and Silences the target for 3 seconds.

Uses

  • An excellent opening shot when fighting against casters in PvP or PvE
  • Good spellcasting disruption when combined with Scatter Shot properly
  • Great when pulling spellcasting mobs in instances; casters will run towards you when hit with this, allowing you to pull them without being out of their line of sight
  • Can be used to pull caster mobs into a Freezing Trap more easily
  • Can be an "extra shot" if other shots are on cooldown, although it only does 50% weapon damage.
  • Can be used prevent healers from healing when low on health, allowing three seconds for you to strike a killing blow; works especially well against paladins, priests and mages as it also disrupts their ability to use damage shields.

Notes

  • Does not share a cooldown with any other Hunter abilities
  • Although it doesn't silence immune mobs and bosses, it does interrupt them.

Limitations

  • Fairly long cooldown
  • Most bosses are immune
  • As this is an Arcane-based spell, mobs that are immune to Arcane will be immune to the silence effect (NOT the physical damage)
