Beast Mastery Hunter Phase 1 / Tier 4 Gearing Strategy

While a clear best in slot list is always available, the items contained might be extremely hard or expensive to get. Thus, we will try to give at least one alternative, for most slots in the list, so that you can pick where and how to farm them.

The BiS lists that we present on this page follow the stat priority that can be found on our stats page below.

1.1.

Other Beast Mastery Hunter Best in Slot Lists

As a Hunter, your pre-raid BiS gear is built around two incredibly important sets: the Beastlord set and the crafted Primalstrike set. The Beastlord set will be BiS with its 4-piece bonus until Tier 5, making it the highest priority to farm early on. The Primalstrike set is actually a crafted Leatherworking set, and while it does require some expensive mats early, it is well worth the investment if you want more power early on. If, however, your character is ready to take on the content of Tiers 5 and 6, then please utilize our updated lists instead.

Tier 4 Beast Mastery Hunter Best in Slot (BiS) Gear

This is the best gear that you should try to obtain from the Tier 4 raids of TBC, which includes Karazhan, Gruul's Lair, and Magtheridon's Lair. All of these raids are available from the launch of TBC Classic. As you might notice however, several pieces of gear are identical between the pre-raid BiS and the Tier 4 raid BiS setups. This is mainly because of the power of the 4-piece bonus on the Beastlord gear set, which takes up 4 slots. This set bonus is so powerful that you will not replace it until Tier 5.
