  • Its instant cast speed makes it useful when it comes to burst damage. It is very useful in PvP and for kiting, where mobility is key.
  • Arcane Shot deals arcane damage which bypasses armor, but can be partially resisted.
  • Though it deals magic damage, Arcane Shot is not considered a spell and gains no benefit from spellpower, spell hit, or spell critical strike.
