WeakAuras for Beast Mastery Hunters

On this page, we will list some useful WeakAuras for Beast Mastery Hunters, as well as some that are recommended for DPS players in general.

If you are unfamiliar with WeakAuras, it is an extremely powerful and popular AddOn that lets you make customized displays for everything in the game. This includes buffs, debuffs, cooldowns, Focus, other resources, and almost everything else you can imagine.

To import a WeakAura, follow one of our links to the Wago.io website. Once you arrive, you can click the "Copy WeakAura Import String" button.

With it saved to your clipboard, log into the game and type the /wa command into the chat box. Go to "Import" and press Ctrl+V to paste in the key you have copied. Import the group and you are finished!

Using WeakAuras and knowing a little about how it works is almost mandatory for any serious raider.

These are a few WeakAuras that we deem essential to playing your Beast Mastery Hunter optimally. You do not need all of them, but having any WeakAura for keeping track of your Frenzy is absolutely necessary. The Frenzy Tracker is for practiced players, while the Barbed Shot Helper is great for beginners.
