Disclaimer

This page will be a rough outline of the bosses and mechanics in the Crucible of Storms raid. This page will focus primarily on how a Beast Mastery Hunter can optimize its performance on the raid bosses in Crucible of Storms, and not on an actual raid strategy for the bosses. Initially, this page will focus on Heroic mode and lower, however, as more bosses are being killed on Mythic, the guide will also include optimizations for Mythic bosses.

Beast Mastery in Crucible of Storms

Beast Mastery Hunters have always been a popular choice for raiding, and Crucible of Storms is no exception. The spec offers well-balanced single-target and cleave damage, and it is the only ranged spec to be completely mobile, making it excellent for doing mechanics without any DPS penalty.

Beast Mastery Hunter Playstyle on The Restless Cabal

The most important thing to master from a Hunter perspective on the Cabal is your 2-target rotation. It is not often used in raid or Mythic+ content, so here is a small reminder of the main priorities of BM on 2 targets:

Resounding Protection Icon Resounding Protection and Duck and Cover Icon Duck and Cover Azerite Traits are extremely powerful on this fight. The size of the absorb shield does not go down when your health goes down with the Promises of Power Icon Promises of Power debuff on the fight. This means that the traits effectively give you a 100%+ absorb shield.

We recommend saving Aspect of the Wild Icon Aspect of the Wild for when you use Bloodlust Icon Bloodlust/Heroism Icon Heroism, or when you reach 9 stacks of Promises of Power Icon Promises of Power.

Uu'nat, Harbinger of the Void

Your choice of Chimaera Shot Icon Chimaera Shot versus One with the Pack Icon One with the Pack is going to come down to what sims better for you. The fight does not have any particular inclinations towards either talent.

Beast Mastery Hunter Playstyle on Uu'nat

Your second Aspect of the Wild Icon Aspect of the Wild should be saved for the adds that spawn. It is also important to be aware of when your guild uses the Relic that reduces damage done, as well as when the boss enters a transition phase. You can maintain Frenzy Icon Frenzy while the boss is transitioning.
