Best Potency Conduits for Beast Mastery Hunters in PvP

  1. If you are Venthyr, Empowered Release Icon Empowered Release is the best Potency Conduit. This increases the chance your Flayed Shot Icon Flayed Shot procs Flayer's Mark Icon Flayer's Mark.
  2. If you are Kyrian, Enfeebled Mark Icon Enfeebled Mark makes it so enemies inside of your Resonating Arrow Icon Resonating Arrow take increased damage. This is a very strong Potency Conduit against most classes and makes Resonating Arrow an even stronger cooldown.
  3. One With the Beast Icon One With the Beast increases the damage of you and your pets when Bestial Wrath Icon Bestial Wrath is active. This is great for increasing your burst damage.

Best Endurance Conduits for Beast Mastery Hunters in PvP

  1. Rejuvenating Wind Icon Rejuvenating Wind makes Exhilaration Icon Exhilaration give you a heal over time after you use it. This is great for increasing your survivability when you need to use your defensive cooldowns.
  2. Resilience of the Hunter Icon Resilience of the Hunter makes Feign Death Icon Feign Death reduce the damage you take. This is another crucial Conduit, as you are normally the focus target for enemy teams.
3.3.

Best Finesse Conduits for Beast Mastery Hunters in PvP

  1. Tactical Retreat Icon Tactical Retreat makes Disengage Icon Disengage slow enemies that are near you when you use it. This is a strong Conduit that will help you kite enemies and pets that are targeting you, especially melee specs.
  2. Reversal of Fortune Icon Reversal of Fortune grants you Focus after interrupting an enemy. This is a great choice for a Finesse Conduit, as long as you are able to interrupt a cast.

  2. For survivability, Craven Strategem Icon Craven Strategem is a fantastic Legendary choice. This should be used against teams with bleeds or DoT affects that will be focusing you.
