Serpent's Swiftness is a hunter talent in the Beast Mastery talent tree. Players may assign up to 5 talent points in this talent.


This talent is considered the bread and butter ability to many BM Hunters. Not only does your pet become even more of a caster killer, but your DPS is increased by a solid amount too. The faster your ranged weapon fires the better it gets. In longer fights you will notice your DPS improve even more. A must have for Beast Masters everywhere.
