Aka: What you say? Hunters get friendly fire? Sweet!
Okay according to wowwiki: “When misdirection is active, ALL attacks that happen on a tick during which ANY attack happens, is Misdirected.”
This basically means you can misdirect more than 3 mobs to ..well… where ever… using an Explosive Trap. NB: only first burst is misdirected. Also using multishot last will make it count as only one of the misdirect points, the final one (rather than using all 3 misdirection points on the first shot.)
Okay sooo going beyond the basics & getting dirty with Misdirect:
- Running a dungeon with someone who goes AFK? Cast misdirection on their butts and pop a couple of shots at something big … err best to do this with the consent of party members, a dismissed pet and feign up… just to be safe. Scout Report has a very funny take on this.
- You really can set yourself ‘At War’ the Cenarion representative sitting at the base of the Orgrimmar flight tower. Here is a beautiful video that demonstrates using this as an effective deterrent for beggars… or for kicks with mates (I suppose that should be for kicks at a friend’s expense really.)
- Doing some competitive farming for mobs? Pop misdirect and fire on three separate mobs to send em to your pet. Now they are all grey, and you are a right bastard for hogging all the loot.
& to wrap it up: Check out a good clean post over at Lienna’s Log to do with using Misdirection skillful like in a pulling situation.
