Ability mount whitetiger.png
  • Aspect of the Pack
  • 30% increased movement speed. Dazed if struck.

Aspect of the Pack increases the party and raid's movement speed but makes them vulnerable to [Dazed]; a group version of [Aspect of the Cheetah].



  • This ability allows players to get to places faster and move quicker in battle.
  • A handy speed boost indoors (where mounts do not work) especially after instance wipes. Generally, a hunter should wait until the last member of the group enters an area before activating this Aspect; the stragglers will eventually catch up to those in front, who will then get the buff themselves.
  • By level 20, players have access to mounts which let them travel at +60% speed (though they are not usable in combat while this Aspect is).
  • Your party member(s) will be dazed when hit, which is very annoying and potentially lethal (hence the term "Aspect of the Dazed" or "Aspect of the Wipe"). A hunter must be careful when to toggle off this ability as to not slow party members. There are addons that can automatically remove the aspect when someone is dazed.
  • Aspect of the Pack does not increase speed if swimming, nor does it affect mount speed.
