Concussive Shot is a row 1 hunter class talent. It replaces Ability rogue trip [Wing Clip].

While Concussive Shot has a lower base duration than Wing Clip, it offers increased range, has no Focus cost, and its duration can be extended.


  • Unlike Ability rogue trip [Wing Clip], Concussive Shot can be cast without a weapon. This means that it'll still function while disarmed.
  • Concussive Shot's duration can only be extended while wielding a ranged weapon, since Ability hunter steadyshot [Steady Shot] and Ability hunter cobrashot [Cobra Shot] require one.
