On this page, we list the best enchants, flasks, potions, and food you can get for your Survival Hunter in WotLK Classic for PvE content.



Wrath of the Lich King requires fewer consumables and enchants than Classic or The Burning Crusade, but each of them is extremely important to maximizing your damage output and survivability in any situation, but especially in Raids and dungeons. Below will be a list of the optimal consumables and enchants to help you get the most out of your Survival Hunter.

Best Gems for Survival Hunters

Relentless Earthsiege Diamond Icon Relentless Earthsiege Diamond is by far the best option for your Meta Gem Socket Icon Meta Gem, as it gives a considerable amount of crit, increases the damage dealt by your critical strikes by 3%, and is easily activated by Nightmare Tear Icon Nightmare Tear.

Matching gem sockets is usually the correct strategy as many socket bonuses are geared towards stats that you want, but this will all depend on what the socket bonus actually is. In general, if the socket bonus is a DPS stat, it is worth getting. However, keeping your Meta Gem Socket Icon Meta Gem activated is by far the most important rule when deciding what gems to use. Below is a list of the best gems to use in each color socket.


Best PvE Glyphs for Survival Hunter

Glyph of Explosive Shot Icon Glyph of Explosive Shot, Glyph of Kill Shot Icon Glyph of Kill Shot, and Glyph of Explosive Trap Icon Glyph of Explosive Trap are going to be your best choices by far for normal use. If you wanted to optimize for the encounters where you cannot use Explosive Trap IconExplosive Trap, you would replace it with Glyph of Steady Shot Icon Glyph of Steady Shot.


Best Consumables for Survival Hunters

Blackened Dragonfin Icon Blackened Dragonfin is the best choice if you need to use personal food, because of the Agility it provides. However, in raids you will usually have access to a Fish Feast Icon Fish Feast.

Flask of Endless Rage Icon Flask of Endless Rage is the best choice by far. It is weighted to be significantly better than other elixir options.

Potion of Speed Icon Potion of Speed greatly increases your haste for a short period. Use this both pre-pull and again when it is off cooldown for a considerable DPS increase.

If you are an engineer, you should always make use of the free extra damage that comes from Global Thermal Sapper Charge Icon Global Thermal Sapper Charge and Saronite Bomb Icon Saronite Bomb. These can also be added into macros for easier usage during encounters.
