According to Article IV, Section VII, Paragraph III of the Hunter bloggers handbook, I am hereby obligated to report to you on hunter gear and set bonuses coming in patch 4.2. So without further ado, I present to you our T12 set bonuses.
- 2 piece – Your Steady Shot and Cobra Shot have a 10% chance to trigger a Flaming Arrow, dealing ??% instant weapon damage as fire.
- 4 piece – You have a 10% chance from your autoshots to make your next shot cost no focus.
There you have it. Two pieces gives us a nice little damage proc. How much damage is yet to be determined, but the fact that I’ll be so awesome as to shoot a flaming arrow from my gun makes me happy.
The four piece bonus is utterly fantastic. A 10% proc rate may not sound like a lot, but it is. If it were a school kid he’d be walking around with a “nerf me” sign that the lesser classes taped to his back.
The overall awesomeness of this bonus will be determined by any internal cooldowns that may be associated with it (hopefully none), and if the proc can be consumed by Steady Shot and Cobra shot, which cost no focus. Although, come to think of it, worst case you’ll just fire Arcane Shot if everything else is on cool down.
It’s early in the process and things can and do change, but as of right now you’ll want four pieces of T12.
