1. Artifact Progression for Beast Mastery Hunter

The Titanstrike Artifact leaves you with a number of directions you can head in once you branch out from the base traits. The one we present on this page is recommended for any kind of raiding.

1.1. Early Artifact Progression for Beast Mastery Hunter

Artifact Progression

The goal of the path is to reach  Icon Master of Beasts as soon as possible, following this path to the other golden traits as well.

Whilst this path does skip on some single-target traits like  Icon Spitting Cobras at first, the pursuit of the golden traits as quickly as possible makes this worth it.

The Beast Mastery Artifact opens with the passive ability,  Icon Hati's Bond. This causes an additional pet in the form of Hati, a lightning wolf, to fight alongside you and your main pet. It will use auto attacks and Basic Attacks alongside your pet, and several mechanics of the Artifact tree build onto Hati as well.
