TBC Classic Survival Hunter Phase 1 / Tier 4 Gear and Best in Slot
On this page, you will find the best Tier 4 PvE gear and best in slot items for your Survival Hunter in TBC Classic Phase 1.
Survival 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.
Other Survival 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 Survival Hunter BiS
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.
Alternative Gear Options for Survival Hunter
While the list above contains the absolute best Tier 4 gear setup, you are unlikely to quickly gather all of it. We provide more options below, some of which are very close to the best and some which are just much easier to get!
