Hunter PvP Gear Guide
On this page, we will go over the Phase 5 best in slot gear for Hunters in PvP.
PvP Gearing for Hunters
The list below is following the stat priority of Hit Cap (5%) > Resilience ≥ Agility > Attack Power > Critical Strike and will include items available exclusively from TBC dungeons/raids, professions, PvP, and reputation rewards. It is worth noting that this setup is designed to be slightly more defensive, but you could choose to go for a more offensive gear set if you wanted to. Keep in mind that sockets are quite valuable on gear as well, and usually should be how you choose off-pieces.
Gearing for PvP as a Hunter is actually quite easy early on. Start off by getting your pre-raid BiS on your Hunter, going for the Beastlord set and the crafted pieces of gear. Do the dungeons and raids for whatever you can get, then eventually start farming arenas for your epic PvP set.
This is a list of items that are considered to be best in each slot.
If you are looking for a PvE gearing guide for either pre-raid or best in slot gear make sure to check out our Hunter PvE gearing hub instead.

Best Gems for PvP Hunter
- Red - Delicate Crimson Spinel
- Yellow - Wicked Pyrestone
- Blue - Jagged Seaspray Emerald. Blue sockets are typically low value, but using these green gems can satisfy both the yellow and blue requirement for a meta gem at once, allowing you to use more red gems elsewhere in your gear.
Finally, Swift Skyfire Diamond is the best meta gem for PvP because of the movement speed increase.
