Welcome to Scattered Shots, written by Frostheim of Warcraft Hunters Union and the Hunting Party Podcast. Each week, Frostheim uses logic and science mixed with a few mugs of Dwarven Stout to look deep into the hunter class. Got hunter questions? Feel free to email Frostheim.
While compiling the master Scattered Shots Resource Guide, I spent a lot of time digging back through months (and years) of hunter columns here on WoW.com, and one of the things I realized was that some of the key guides were woefully out of date. The game keeps changing and information that was great one day becomes obsolete a few months later. So I'm going to try to fill in some of the more glaring gaps in the resource guide from time to time, starting today.
I have not forgotten Survival 101 -- the specter of that column still looms over my shoulder, haunting me -- and we won't be doing dull, boring basics guides every column. We'll continue to look at hunter news, end-game raiding strats, hunter loot, pets and why healers hate them, more ways to use your hunter that Blizzard never intended, and of course Grandpappy Frostheim will make an appearance from time to time.
But on the agenda today is a straightforward guide to the best level 80 hunter enchants. If your gear can have an enchant, it should have an enchant. While any single enchant doesn't make a huge difference to our total DPS, all those little things add up to the kind of DPS that has those wannabe DPS shadow priests crying in their decorative orbs.
