Scatter Shot is a Marksmanship hunter honor talent, available at rank 25, that causes a disorient effect.

Tips and tactics

  • If you need to interrupt a spell or ability, Scatter Shot can do it.
  • If you need to escape, Scatter Shot is a very good choice. Scatter Shot the enemy, then immediately turn on [Aspect of the Cheetah] and run. You will outrun most enemies this way provided you have a small head-start, which Scatter Shot can give you. This Scatter Shot > Flee tactic is less effective when you're beset by two or more enemies, as Scatter Shot's cooldown is too long to use on both of them.

Patches and hotfixes

  • Legion Patch 7.0.3 (2016-07-19): Re-added as a Marksmanship honor talent. Now removes all harmful damage over time effects from the target and deals 35% weapon damage (down from 50%).
  • WoD Patch 6.0.2 (2014-10-14): Removed.
  • MoP Patch 5.3.0 (2013-05-21): Now shares diminishing returns with [Freezing Trap] and [Wyvern Sting].
  • Hotfix (2012-10-04): "Scatter Shot will now properly break when damage is dealt by any source."
  • Cataclysm Patch 4.1.0 (2011-04-26): Scatter Shot's disorient effect should no longer sometimes be broken by the hunter's Auto Shot.
  • Cataclysm Patch 4.0.1 (2010-10-12): No longer talented, available to all hunters.
  • TBC Patch 2.1.0 (2007-05-22): This ability will now trigger [Kill Command] when it critically strikes.
  • WoW Icon 16x16.png Patch 1.7.0 (2005-09-22):
    • Should now cancel combat mode when used.
    • The tooltips for quick Hunter shots have been updated to show them as instant abilities.
  • WoW Icon 16x16.png Patch 1.5.0 (2005-06-07): Special ability shots no longer add the ranged weapon speed or take into account ranged weapon haste when determining the actual cooldown. The tooltip and cooldown timers should now properly reflect the actual cooldown.
  • WoW Icon 16x16.png Patch 1.4.0 (2005-05-05): Now usable while moving and no longer interrupts ranged combat. Now properly reduces the ranged attack power contribution by the percent modifier.
