Fun Hunter Glyph Ideas

Hunter glyphs? Let’s be honest. They’re not terribly exciting. I’m talking more about the minor glyphs here. We do have some pretty good major ones, even though we now have fewer options in Warlords due to some of them being exclusive with each other.¬† For example, you can’t use Glyph of Liberation and Glyph of Disengage at the same time, or Glyph of Mending and Glyph of Mend Pet. You have to choose one or the other.

We did get a few new options in Warlords. Here they are:

  • Glyph of Snake Trap (Major) — Your Ice Trap is replaced with Snake Trap. Venomous snakes released by the trap will poison nearby enemies with a Crippling Poison that reduces movement speed by 50% for 12 sec.
  • Glyph of Quick Revival (Major) — Your Revive Pet is now instant but costs 80 Focus.
  • Glyph of Deep Frost (Major) — Victims of your Freezing Trap are now immune to any damage for its duration.
  • Glyph of Play Dead (Minor) — Your pet also plays dead when you use Feign Death.

The first two aren’t really my cup of tea. Deep Frost has some situational uses I would think. Play Dead is simply awesome.

The best new Hunter Glyph: Glyph of Play Dead

Out of the handful of new glyphs being added for hunters in Warlords, the Glyph of Play Dead is definitely my favorite. It only takes up a minor slot, so you don’t have to worry about it clashing with anything important.

The pet not only plays its death animation but also drops aggro. This is only useful in some situations, as I quickly discovered when I feigned death to get a rare elite back on my pet. Since the pet also dropped aggro, the elite mob reset and started evading. Any time you want to be able to feign to drop aggro without resetting the fight, you’re not going to want to use this.
