Introduction

On this page, you will find Beast Mastery Hunter specific information for each boss in Castle Nathria. This is no encounter guide, but a collection of Beast Mastery Hunter specific tips for each boss.

This page assumes that you already understand most of the mechanics of each encounter. These can be found on the full raid guide, so what is contained here are details specifically tailored toward Beast Mastery Hunter and what you can do to deal with each fight as best as possible.

During this time encounters within each specific raid will include an additional mechanic and items will drop at increased item levels. If you would like to learn more general information about the Fated Raids system as a whole, please see our overview below. Otherwise, continue to use this page for specialization-specific tips.
