General Information

On this page, you will find tips, tricks, and strategies tailored to your Beast Mastery Hunter for each boss of the following raid: Sanctum of Domination. All our content is updated for World of Warcraft — Shadowlands 9.1.5.

1.

Introduction

On this page, you will find Beast Mastery Hunter specific information to deal with each boss in the Sanctum of Domination raid.

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.

All recommendations are progression-based tips and will not necessarily be the best for an overall DPS ranking.

This guide suggests using Pouch of Razor Fragments Icon Pouch of Razor Fragments for every encounter, as it strikes the best balance of single-target and AoE damage.

We have also included alternative Legendary choices for non-Venthyr Beast Mastery Hunters.

You will also note that we are leaving the choice of Aspect of the Beast Icon Aspect of the Beast versus Bloodshed Icon Bloodshed open, as this choice can be determined by gear and should be simmed. However, if there is any meaningful amount of AoE on a fight, then Aspect of the Beast Icon Aspect of the Beast will always beat Bloodshed Icon Bloodshed.
