The jump shot is the basic skill that every hunter should have. With this in your arsenal you can kite mobs and increase your raid dps by limiting dps downtime. This guide should go over everything you need on how to jump shot — a hunter skill since WoW first launched.
Jump Shot is very simple: when you’re running you just jump, turn around midair, fire an instant shot, then turn back to facing forward before you land. This way your forward momentum never slows and you can still dps your target. A hunter literally never has to slow down or stop.
Note that you need to be steering with your mouse to jump shot! Just push down both mouse buttons and you’ll be running. As long as the right mouse button is down, you’ll turn with your mouse movement.
Here’s the hunter jump shot guide video to show you exactly how it’s done, and some examples of how it can be useful in raids (though that footage is a bit dated now, the concept continues to be relevant).
