General Information

This page is a gearing up guide for Beast Mastery Hunters. It is updated for World of Warcraft WoD 6.0.3. It first presents the best in slot items before listing, slot by slot, all the items, with a level higher than 346, that you can acquire in the game. We also explain how you will be competing for loot with other classes.

The other pages of our Beast Mastery Hunter guide can be accessed from the table of contents on the right.
