To me this seems like a rogue/fury war gun not a hunter weapon, of course if its a big upgrade for hunter should go to them... but the hit is more useful for someone who dw
Assuming the hit chance calculations I read on wowwiki are correct, this gun is a nice replacement for Sunfury Bow of the Phoenix (
) for Dwarven hunters.
The +5 gun skill gives +2% hit chance on boss level mobs, adding the 17 hit rating on the gun itself gives a total of +3%, which makes replacing some other gear easier (for example Gridle of the Prowler for Belt of the Black Eagle).
As for low dps (34 rap lose compared to Sunfury), this can be offbalanced by using Adamanite Shells (6 dps gain).
It's a pity Blizzard favours trolls by making the staggering majority of raid-class ranged weapons bows (each 'tier' top ranged is a bow, Sunfury -> Serpent Spine Longbow -> Bristleblitz Striker). On top of that it seems Blizzard made pvp "fair" by making arena ranged an xbow - no racial benefit for anyone :/
First gun to look like a pistol i think
not a great weapon when it comes to stats but the top end damage is the 2nd best for guns.
This is the best (stat wise) ranged weapon for rogues up into the BT/MH. And with the buff thats upcoming for it (+1 agil +2 hit rating) it may be the best ranged slot for rogues all together.
Of course I'd still pass for the hunters, but once they get it (it drops a lot) rogues go snatch one.
As a dwarf hunter I was aiming for that gun long time.
But with incoming patch 2.4
is going BoE and can be bought from AH if your guild is not able to kill Doomwalker... So, now I'm thinking of what's better of these two, lol.
I see that this can be DE'd into greater eternal essences. can anyone confirm this?
For a dwarf you will probly keep it till sunwell bows drop +1% more crit is alot of dps
By the time a hunter is getting this item to drop they should already be hit capped. And ignoring the now-available Crossbow of Relentless Assault (which is far superior to this), this item is hardly an upgrade over the Sunfury Bow of the Phoenix. A little higher DPS (which is the main upgrade, as steady shots rely on weapon DPS and do not benefit from the DPS bonus of arrows) and one more agility than the bow. But 34 less attack power (factoring in that one agility, it's a loss of 33 attack power).
be sure to put your lips on the vary end
I think that this one of the best guns in the game! But the hit rating and agi is also great for a rogue.
"Arcanite Steam-Pistol, HO!"
Makes you wonder when the WOW version of the BFG9000 will appear ;)

A pistol... is just as strong as Gladiator's Heavy Crossbow... O.O
equal if the name says pistol it's actually a gun :(
it drops from The Eye off Al'ar
All we need now is a sub-machine gun. High RoF, lower damage.
Some serious damage buff potential there.
This is probobly what i would want if i could only figure out how to get it.....Well if you know how to get it please post that and what it looks like please.
This drops from Al'ar the Phoenix God in Tempest Keep.
With almost all end bosses dropping bows, I'm glad there's atleast one great gun out there for us dorfs ;)
looks like a damn super soaker
It's only marginally better then Sunfury Bow of the Phoenix, and considering the long and hard attunement for The Eye, and that this drops of a boss that is a lot harder then the prince from Karazhan, this item has pretty lackluster stats.
Imo it could use a buff of maybe 3 dps or so, that way it will actually be a decent upgrade to people.
im really disspointed in this guns stats, obviously as a dwarf it is noticeably better than the sunfury bow, however it isnt significantly better which imo being from A'lar it should be.
Congratulations on winning a drop from Al'ar on Kael'thas :D
Must have some mad skillz to do that
Lol hunter in full t5 on our server has this.. looks very.. very small.
New stats in 2.2
19 Hit Rating
What was a very powerfull ranged just got better.
this is the best stat-enhancing ranged for pve rogues.
This is a hunter weapon all the way if you disagree you dont deserve too play wow!
Dwarfs have gun specialization which means that they prefer guns over Xbows or bows because there skill can be raised and they can do more damage with that gun. Its almost like taking a shield away from a tank and telling them to tank without it!
with pach 2.3 better this or SSC bow?
1%crit racial+ 20 agy+hit
Alright since apparently nobody has said this I will.
This is a good MM hunter gun because of the 2.9 speed. If a BM hunter takes this he either has crap or needs to learn what guns work best for BM. I have a wolfslayer sniper rifle 2.7 speed and wouldn't pay more than 10dkp for this. Its either a MM gun or rogue/fury warrior gun imo. The only upgrade to a WOlfslayer for a BM hunter is the barrel blade long rifle which is 2.6 off doomwalker.
As a BM hunter i don't appreciate the blanket statements about this being the best gun for hunters i wouldn't want this unless i had a whole lot of haste gear.
Why does it say vendor? Can u buy this item? Or is it strictly a drop item?
the nendors that sell this are on Private servers only
yah i know its wierd
