before TBC i had about +14% ranged hit, even in pvp. things like insect swarm and scorpid sting didn't phase me at all. but now at lvl 70 with 15.8 hit rating = 1% hit i have a total of +9.28% hit (99 hit rating + 3/3 surefooted talent).
i'm a bit a of hit freak so i just can't stand missing any shots. i had 85 hit rating before and missed a scatter shot on a mage. i couldn't believe what happened so i checked my combat log and almost cried when i saw "Your Scatter Shots misses [gnome mage's name]."
every week i get more serious about getting geared up for arena so i've been wondering what pieces of gear i should have. i'm not worried about stam, agi, int, resilience as much as hit. getting to a high enough hit rating where i won't miss things like scatter shot is on a high priority for me. i've seen some profiles of hunters in top top 5v5 teams and they don't have as much hit rating as i do. for example, reznap from power trip (bloodlust battlegroup) only had 24 hit rating last time i checked (finally caught him with his gear on).
so how much ranged hit should i really have for arena? i mean, doesn't every hit count or am i really missing something? (pun not intended)
