Survival Hunter PvP Gear Guide for WotLK Classic
On this page, we will go over the best in slot gear for Survival Hunters in PvP for the first tier of Wrath Classic.
PvP Gearing for Survival Hunters
The list below is following the stat priority of Hit Cap (5%) > Resilience ≥ Agility > Critical Strike > Attack Power and will include items available exclusively from Wrath of the Lich King 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 extremely straight-forward. The best method is just to do battlegrounds and arena, spending your honor and arena points as you go to buy new pieces. You can also choose to do dungeons and raids for badges, which can then be used to buy the PvP gear as well. Your ultimate goal is to get the full set of PvP gear for the resilience it provides.
This is a list of items that are considered to be best in each slot.

- Red Gem — Bright Scarlet Ruby

Finally, Relentless Earthsiege Diamond is the best Meta Gem.
