4.2: Tier 12 Hunter Set Bonus

First of all, let’s talk new look.

I really really am impressed.  It’s a big departure from the previous models with dead animals or eyeballs on them. (I still like my Tier 6)

This looks like the Tier 11 dipped in fire, and had the fish heads removed and replaced with demon horns.  I might actually show this helm for once.  I kinda like it, though it might look funny on a worgen female.

This new set appears to be called the Fireflight set. (at least that’s what MMO-Champion seems to think right now)

Here’s what the set bonus looks like:

  • Hunter 2 Pieces – Your Steady Shot and Cobra Shot have a 10% chance to trigger a Flaming Arrow, dealing X% instant weapon damage as Fire.
  • Hunter 4 Pieces – You have a 10% chance from your autoshots to make your next shot cost no focus.

Holy cow. Ho… ly… cow.

I think these will be tweaked a bit, but 10% chance to proc is pretty freaking good — we’ll see the Fire shots frequently, and then to have our next shots for free? I’ll take it.

My question becomes this: If we break our 4-piece tier 11 set bonus for this, will the additional damage from the Flaming Arrow make up for the reduction in our cast time for Steady Shot and Cobra Shot?  I guess we’ll have to wait and see.

  1. Or if we break our 4 piece T11 set bonus will the haste already be built into the new T12 to keep the cast time fast?
