Marksmanship has embraced the class fantasy of the ranger, drawing inspiration from the likes of the Windrunner sisters, Sylvanas, Alleria and Vereesa. Marks hunters look for vulnerabilities in their targets, mark those vulnerabilities, then take aim with carefully placed shots. Players can customize their Marks hunters to fulfill several variations of the fantasy: they’re the only hunter spec that can function with or without a pet; they have several options including undead pets and a shadow-based shot for those more interested in following in Sylvanas’s footsteps; and they have several choices which can convert the spec to either a carefully planned out long-range sniper play-style, or a quick moving spray-and-pray play-style.
An extremely useful tool for overall optimization
