If you’ve spent any amount of time at all in the new heroics, then you know that interrupting spells is a huge part of many of the encounters. If you’ve spent any amount of time playing a hunter then you know that when it comes to interrupting we’re not exactly the most assertive bunch. Still though we’re not completely helpless in this area.
Now when you think of hunters and interrupt you normally think of Silencing Shot, which is only available to Marksman hunters. Silencing Shot is not our only option though. In addition to providing buffs and debuffs, we have pets with interrupt capabilities.
Gorillas are the best option because their ability has the shortest cool down at 30 seconds. Nether Shock has a 40 second cool down and Serenity Dust comes in at a hefty one minute. Beast Mastery hunters have the Longevity talent that will reduce the cool downs by 30%. So for Pummel that takes its cool down 21 seconds which puts it on par with Silencing Shot.
So if you find yourself in an unbalanced group lacking sufficient interrupts, just head to the stables and grab one of these faithful companions.
