About Our Reviewer

This guide has been reviewed and approved by two of the best Hunters in the world. Niixx raids in Limit and you can watch his stream on Twitch. Azortharion raids in Ðanish Terrace and you can also watch his stream on Twitch. They both maintain their own Hunter guide, as well.

1. Gems↑top

You should use Immaculate Mastery Taladite Icon Immaculate Mastery Taladite (better) Greater Mastery Taladite Icon Greater Mastery Taladite (cheaper), or Mastery Taladite Icon Mastery Taladite (even cheaper) in all sockets.

2. Enchants↑top

Slot Enchantment
Weapon Hemet's Heartseeker Icon Hemet's Heartseeker

3. Consumables↑top

3.1. Food

For fights that are purely single-target, you should always eat Felmouth Frenzy Icon Felmouth Frenzy, especially if there is movement involved. The proc of Felmouth Frenzy is RPPM, so it is not affected by movement (it will still proc as often in a movement-heavy encounter), but it does not scale up with additional targets, as stat-based food does. For this reason, this is the food of choice for Fel-Lord Zakuun.

In other situations, you should always eat food that gives you Mastery. You will be granted:

3.2. Flask

Your flask should be a Draenic Agility Flask Icon Draenic Agility Flask or a Greater Draenic Agility Flask Icon Greater Draenic Agility Flask (better).

3.3. Rune

Your rune should be a Hyper Augment Rune Icon Hyper Augment Rune. Note that you can also use the empowered version with a 1-minute cooldown that you get from Tanaan Jungle:

3.4. Potion

During the encounter, your best choice for a potion will be Draenic Agility Potion Icon Draenic Agility Potion.
