Feign Death is a level 28 hunter ability. Upon using this ability the hunter will fall to the ground as though they had died.
This effect clears the hunter's threat and can be used to end combat causing enemies to either reset or attack a different target.
Enemies have a chance, based on the difference between their level and the hunter's level, to resist this effect. Basically this means that against higher level mobs, feign death was more likely to fail in the past.
If there is a high level mob when you feign death, there is a better chance that the feign death will be resisted. During controlled testing these tables were confirmed to be correct. If anyone finds data that is off from these tables when testing, please let us know the location, level, mobs, players, etc so that we can reproduce the issue and research it.

Hello, everyone. Sixx here - I've decided to recreate one of the most used forum posts created by the legendary Raziya, with his permission. This will be updated and maintained to remain relevant for Classic. Use the FIND command to skip to specific parts of the thread. Try this, and punch in the index number of the section you want.
Why should you play a hunter? If playing a versatile class with lots of crowd control, burst damage, and a high skill cap appeals to you, you may want to try a hunter.
Do you get tired of spamming Frostbolt endlessly on a mage? Is coughing up hundreds of gold or lots of time for mana potions on a priest annoying? Does not staying in melee to DPS on a boss like Shazzrah annoy you on a rogue?

Play a hunter! The simplest reason to enjoy hunter is that they're engaging. Despite what you may have heard about 'huntards,' we have an awful lot to think about.
Deadzone, ammo, unique rotation, pet micro and other management, delicate but potent CC Hunters have a unique relationship with their auto attacks since, to optimize damage, they time their skill shots between Auto Shots, ensuring that you always have something interesting to do during a boss fight.
Farming gold is made easier.
Whether you want to farm an instance like DM Trib or Mara solo, or roam the open world for herbs or ore, a hunter's skills, and their pet, will make it easy to stake your claim. Since hunters have a complete threat drop on a 30 second cooldown, we can do DPS pretty much whenever we want.
No sitting out of fights, no decursing everyone else At least during a boss fight. And there aren't too many Tranq Shot fights, and they're a lot easier to be aware of than watching for a fast Wing Buffet to kick or pummel.Feign Death is a skill that causes the hunter to appear dead. The hunter loses all aggrowhich causes the enemy to stop attacking them and either flee back to its "territory", attack the hunter's pet, or attack whomever has the next highest aggro. This skill isn't always successful because nearby enemies do have a chance based on your relative level to resist this effect.
The resist is slated to be removed in Cataclysm. Basically this means that against higher level mobs, feign death was more likely to fail in the past. If there is a high level mob when you feign death, there is a better chance that the feign death will be resisted. During controlled testing these tables were confirmed to be correct.

I see, thank you. Obviously happening too often for this guy. I had the same issue and solved it by simply learning how to feign death. Like everything in this game. Everything has mechanics that you can master. I do dm tribute run a lot and I notice it resist more often when passing the spiders and scorpions.
Have had FD fail many times as well, mostly on last boss. Sometimes because spellbatching is broken and they run up to your body and still hit you after FD no resist. Do not use the macro version of feign and just use the normal ability and without pressing meele attack.
Do not move instantly out of feign death. Give it at least a couple seconds for the spellbatch sheit to take effect.
Do not move your camera when feign death. Click on the spell if you must…To try to ignore holding right click. Make sure not to get pushed back as you do feign death. If you know you going to take a charge just take it instead. Use deterrence if you must first. Taking all these things in to consideration.
There is a lot that goes to it and takes some practice and knowledge to make the most out of it. WoW Classic Classes. Doggy-razorgore November 16,am 1. Luzsolar-earthen-ring November 16,pm 2.

Type of creature matters, seems like the dogs in DM have a higher resist chance Have had FD fail many times as well, mostly on last boss.What is the chance of it being resisted?
Does this talent completely negate the chance against an equal level npc?
If anyone has some solid data on this topic I would really appreciate it. Edit: Was also curious if anyone in beta has an update on hunter and warlock pet behavior.
Have some of the oddities been worked out or any plans for them to resolved? Thanks again. Common misconception, but it has nothing to do with batching. It was a BFA bug that made its way into classic. AFAIK it was a purposefully added delay to make macros not increase dps since pets are really slow about using their abilities. I want to say that same level or below level it would work a very high percent of the time, and if it was orange it woudnt work very often, maybeif it was skull, it woudnt work.
Thanks for the replies guys. Wish there was some hard data on this. Realistically: This person speaks the absolute truth.

We understand that you can be attacked but what should happen in PvP for example is feign drops combat and for that small moment of dropped combat it should allow you to place a trap, as you need to be out of combat to do so. This is currently not working. So working as intended. Now do you understand. Can you please please type in what the skill says it does please to clarify to others on this skill.
Feign Death is bugged and need to be fixed, any Hunter who played hunter know that this is bug. We always could trap in combat and now its impossible. Its not resist because resist is resist and not drop combat is bug. You need to control your pet to get out of combat.
If your pet is attacking the target while you Feign Death, the chances of escaping combat are extremely slim. You need to recall your pet from attacking the target, then Feign Death, and you escape combat for a short period of time, but long enough to give you time to quickly lay a trap. This is how it worked in vanilla as well. That said, I do feel like there are some inconsistencies in its use compared to how I remember it working.
The way I recall it working is that if you recall your pet and use Feign Death, you drop out of combat for as long until either you or your pet attack something, or someone attacks you and your pet. In that case, it has indeed failed and you should remain in combat. Feign Death was an extremely reliable way to get out of combat back in vanilla, and was very rarely resisted.
If not, whatever. Idk, hunters have it really easy while leveling. Like seriously, is the bug that you cant use your trap whilst in the heat of combat? Or could it be that this is actually an interaction with feign death that was fixed? Not really sure. However reporting bugs in-game, not inside of the general discussion forums, would probably yield better results.
You must be kidding talking about this not being a big deal! This totally destroys hunter as a pvp option! With a little bit of research this was a suggested macro for this interaction to occur more often. Jesus, are you even reading? This ability is NOT working as intended.
Even when it does work the delay is too long for the ability to have any practical uses. Ignorant or troll.GitHub is home to over 40 million developers working together to host and review code, manage projects, and build software together.
