The path of least resistance can be the last of your existence.[1]

Misdirection is a level 42 Beast Mastery and Marksmanship hunter ability that redirects threat caused by the hunter onto a friendly target for the next 8 seconds.

Notes

This can only target a party or raid member (the hunter's pet counts as a party member).

Tips and tactics

  • This is a highly recommended skill for instances and considered essential for raids. It allows the hunter to execute difficult pulls for the tank. It can effectively add threat for the tank both at the pull, as well as during the middle of a long fight if used repeatedly.
  • If Misdirection is used to pull groups of linked mobs, all mobs will go onto the target of Misdirection even if they were not hit.

Trivia

Patch changes

  • Legion Patch 7.0.3 (2016-07-19): No longer available to Survival.
  • WotLK Patch 3.3.0 (2009-12-08): Redesigned. Instead of having finite charges, it now begins a 4-second timer when the hunter using Misdirection performs a threat-generating attack, during which all threat generated by the hunter goes to the friendly target. In addition, multiple hunters can now misdirect threat to the same friendly target simultaneously.
  • TBC Patch 2.2.0 (2007-09-25): Items used while Misdirection is active will now consume a charge correctly.
  • TBC Patch 2.0.3 (2007-01-09): Added.
