Explosive Shot is a hunter ability learned at level 10 for hunters who have chosen the Survival specialization. It is a great shot to use in place of [Arcane Shot], dealing more damage and making it one of the core abilities of the Survival Hunter.

Notes Edit

  • Each of the damage ticks from this ability can crit.
  • When [Lock and Load] procs, remember not to spam all the charges instantly so that the 2-sec DoT can run its course.
