Marksman Hunter Trinkets

Suddenly we have a lot to trinkets to look at. While rarely changing Talents this expansion, we do have a chance to swap out our trinkets depending on the fight.

Happily we have a man named Azortharion. I think he is Danish? He has a hunter guide right here.

Why would I write when he spells it all out? Simple enough, he is a high end mythic raider. He is the best and playing with the best. I am making the transition from Normal to Heroic raiding. There is a difference!

Trinkets Owned or Hoped For:

  • Talisman of the Master Tracker
    • Equip: Your shots deal (30 / 100)% increased damage per yard between you and the target.
    • This means that the farther you are from the boss, the more damage you do. At max range, about 45 yards, it would be around a 15% boost. At one yard: zero.
  • Mirror of the Blademaster
    • +361 Agility
      Classes: Hunter, Rogue, Shaman, Monk, Druid
      Use: Summons 4 Mirror Images to attack your target and nearby enemies for 20 sec. (1 Min Cooldown)
    • Considered “best in slot”, we’ll always use this one. Our playstyle demands that this stacks with Rapid Fire and our Legendary Ring to make it strong.
  • Fel-Spring Coil
    • +271 Agility
      +271 Critical Strike (2.46% @ L100)
      +271 Mastery (2.46 @ L100)
    • Flat stat boost. Solid, powerful trinket.
  • Stone of the Elements
    • +351 Versatility (2.70% @ L100)Equip: When you heal or deal damage you have a chance to increase your Strength, Agility, or Intellect by 1870 for 15 sec. Your highest stat is always chosen.
      Equip: Increases the effect that healing and mana potions have on the wearer by 40%. This effect does not stack.
    • The crafted trinket, I kind of wish I had one! Nice raiding trinket, it looks like.
  • Malicious Censer
    • +397 Multistrike (6.02% @ L100)
      Classes: Hunter, Rogue, Shaman, Monk, Druid
      Equip: Your attacks have a chance to grant 1093 Agility for 20 sec. (Approximately 1.00 procs per minute)
    • A trinket that “procs” for a big boost in damage.
  • Kihra’s Adrenaline Injector
    • Mythic Warforged
      Item Level 725
      Upgrade Level 0/2
      Binds when picked up
      +257 Agility
      Use: Grants 2567 (23.34 @ L100) Mastery for 20 sec. (2 Min Cooldown)
    • According to the Sims, paired with our Rapid Fire (both have a two minute cooldown) this trinket is crazy good.
  • Infallible Tracking Charm
    • +774 Agility
      Equip: Chance on melee or ranged attack to grant Cleansing Flame, dealing 24229 damage instantly and increasing your damage against Demons by 10% for 10 sec.
    • Our BoA Heirloom trinket from the mythic dungeons. Look at those demons!

So, what does this all mean?

You will change your trinkets based on the fight.

In general, if you are on a fight with many adds, you want the Fel-Spring Coil because you don’t know if and when you might get that big proc — if you don’t, you are weak. (Hellfire Assault, Gorefiend, Soc, Xhul, Manny, Archimonde)

If you are on a single-target fight, then your Malicious Censer will be bad ass since when it does proc, you are sure to be on a target for as long as it lasts.

If you are on a Demon Fight (Gorefiend, Soc, Xhul, Tyrant, Manny, Archimonde), then you’ll want your heirloom trinket.

And maybe — The Talisman of the Master Tracker. I have only had this for a brief while. I will be trying it on Iron Reaver, Iskar and the Tyrant. Those are the fights where I can stand back and pew pew pew. People say “worst in slot” but I think it deserves my giving it a go!

And remember: using the right trinket is important. Doing the mechanics and helping your raid is more important. I have used different trinkets for different fights. The demon trinket is not THAT much more amazing. In a lot of ways, they are close.

Change for the fight, don’t make the fight fit your trinket.
