Survival Hunter Dragonflight Leveling Guide From 1 to 60 (Dragonflight 10.0.2)
When leveling up, you should always choose the piece of loot with the highest item level. The only exception to this rule is if you have a Ring or Necklace with a slightly lower item level, but 2 secondary stats on it instead of 1.
Best Leveling Talents for Survival Hunter
You unlock the Talent Trees at Level 10. Below is the recommended Leveling path when starting from Level 60. It should also be the tree you work towards as you level from 10-60.
Best Leveling Rotation for Survival Hunter
- Use Misdirection on your pet as much as possible.
- Use Serpent Sting during Misdirection to pull mobs towards your pet.
- Use Harpoon to reach your target quickly, and benefit from Terms of Engagement
- Use Kill Shot on targets below 20% health.
- Use Wildfire Bomb on cooldown, but space them 6 seconds apart.
- On AoE, use Butchery to reduce the cooldown of Wildfire Bomb.
- Use Kill Command when below 80 Focus.
- Spam Mongoose Bite to spend excess Focus.
Best Leveling Pet for Survival Hunter
All pets do the same damage, but they vary in their utility and special abilities. For Leveling, the best pet is any Ferocity-type pet, as they heal themselves whenever they do damage, allowing you to make larger pulls and rely on Beast Cleave to keep your pet topped up.
Ferocity pets also come with Primal Rage which is a Bloodlust effect. This should be used as often as possible when you are fighting for over thirty seconds.
You can find a list of all the Pets and the abilities they bring on our Spell Summary Page.
