Bite is one of the updated pet abilities that most hunter pets can use, and if not they'll use either [Claw] or [Smack]. It scales with attack power.

Patch changes

  • Mists of Pandaria Hotfix (2013-05-29): Pets will now correctly auto-cast Bite, Claw, and Smack again.
  • Mists of Pandaria Patch 5.0.4 (2012-08-28): When pet has at least 50 Focus, will now consume 50 Focus for 100% more damage.
  • Wrath of the Lich King Patch 3.0.2 (2008-10-14):
    • Bite now has no cooldown, does the same damage and costs the same Focus as Claw, so works as a Focus dump.
    • Every hunter pet can learn either Bite or Claw (never both).
  • WoW Icon update.png Patch 1.2.0 (2004-12-18): Bite tooltip now lists the damage that is dealt when the pet is content. Actual damage is unchanged.
