Talent Choices for Beast Mastery Hunters


PvP Talents for Beast Mastery Hunters

You can choose 3 of the following PvP talents. Each of them has their uses, but some are better for certain strategies than others. The top three choices are the most useful, but can be replaced with other PvP talents, depending on your team's goal.


Primary PvP Talents

Survival Tactics Icon Survival Tactics causes Feign Death Icon Feign Death to remove all harmful magical effects, and reduces damage taken by 99% for 1.5 seconds. This is a mandatory talent when playing against classes with multiple DoTs (Affliction Warlock, Shadow Priest, Balance Druid). This reduces the enemies' overall damage and helps your healer with dispelling harmful effects. You can also use this to stop incoming spells that are being cast on you.


Situational PvP Talents

Kindred Beasts Icon Kindred Beasts is another strong PvP talent that should be used in almost any situation. This reduces the cooldown important pet abilities that you can activate, such as Master's Call Icon Master's Call.

Chimaeral Sting Icon Chimaeral Sting has 3 different effects that switch after 3 seconds. It starts by reducing the movement speed of the target then silences them. After these two effects, it will reduce the damage and healing the target does. This is a great talent if your team needs additional slows or crowd control


Pet Talents

Pets do not have talent trees, and instead have their own types of specialization (Cunning, Ferocity, or Tenacity).

Each specialization gives your pet a few abilities. Cunning provides the ability Master's Call Icon Master's Call, by far the best pet ability to have. To get the Mortal Wounds Icon Mortal Wounds debuff from your pets, you will need one of the following pets:

  • Hyena
  • Raptor
  • Rodent

You can also use a Ferocity pet which grants 10% Leech if you are not comfortable using Master's Call Icon Master's Call, though we highly recommend it:

  • Carrion Bird
  • Devilsaur
  • Ravager
  • Scorpid
  • Wasp
