Last updated Yesterday at 12:00 by Impakt 1 comment

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.

1.

Choosing a Stat

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 Hunter.

The advice given on this page uses the stat priority of Hit -> Agility -> Critical -> Attack Power -> Armor Penetration -> Haste. You can find a full explanation for this priority over on our Stats page.

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 Enchanted Tear Icon Enchanted 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.

  • In Red Socket Icon Red Sockets, you will use Delicate Scarlet Ruby Icon Delicate Scarlet Ruby.
  • In Yellow Socket Icon Yellow Sockets, depending on your need for hit you can gem for Glinting Monarch Topaz Icon Glinting Monarch Topaz or Rigid Autumn's Glow Icon Rigid Autumn's Glow. If the socket bonus does not matter and you do not need the yellow activation for your Meta Gem Socket Icon Meta Gem, just use Delicate Scarlet Ruby Icon Delicate Scarlet Ruby.
  • One of your Blue Socket Icon Blue Sockets should be dedicated to Enchanted Tear Icon Enchanted Tear. If you need to fill in more Blue Socket Icon Blue Sockets for the socket bonus, go with Shifting Twilight Opal Icon Shifting Twilight Opal. Similarly, just default to Delicate Scarlet Ruby Icon Delicate Scarlet Ruby if you do not care about the socket bonus.

Best Consumables for Survival Hunters

4.1.

Food

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.

4.2.

Flasks and Potions

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.
