WotLK Beast Mastery Hunter Best in Slot List

This is a list of gear that is considered to be the best in each slot. The list below is following the stat priority of Hit rating to cap > Agility > Critical Strike rating; > Armor Penetration rating; > Attack Power; > Haste rating; > Stamina. Make sure to account for the various raid buffs and debuffs that provide hit when checking for your hit rating cap.

Other Beast Mastery Hunter Best in Slot Lists

If you are starting out as a freshly-leveled Beast Mastery Hunter, our pre-raid best in slot list is meant to give you an idea of non-raid items you can chase as a solo / pug player in preparation for raids. Do note that items from Heroic dungeons or that require Frozen Orb Icon Frozen Orbs (which are obtained from Heroics) can be harder to get than raid items due to their daily lockout.

Worthwhile Information When Gearing in Phase 3 / Tier 9

The items in the list below are considered to be best in slot for Beast Mastery Hunters in Phase 3 / Tier 9. Almost all of the items in this list will drop from Hardmodes in Trial of the Crusader 25-man. A couple from of items can come from Ulduar 10/25-man Hardmodes (HM), or can now be bought from the new currency Sidereal Essence from Titan Rune Hardmode Dungeons.

The power gap between these items and their alternatives is rather big. This goes especially for the Heroic version (item level 258) of the T9 set, as we share our tokens for it with Warriors and Shamans. In addition to that, per lockout there can only be a maximum of four hardmode tokens, which are again randomly rolled between classes. The T9-set will have a 232, a 245 and a 258 item level version, it is recommended to stick with the 245 item level version of it until you get the tokens for 258 item level. For more information, check out the Tier 9 set guide here on Icy Veins.

*Please note that using 4-set T8 is an option for Beast Mastery Hunters, and is quite competitive if you do not have access to all of the 252 items. Always sim your character for the best results, but the tier 8 set is a strong set until you can get better gear from tier 9.
