General Information

On this page, you will find tips, tricks, and strategies tailored to your Survival Hunter for each boss of the following raid: Castle Nathria. All our content is updated for World of Warcraft — Shadowlands 9.0.5.

1.

Introduction

On this page, you will find Survival Hunter specific information for each boss in Castle Nathria. This is no encounter guide, but a collection of Survival Hunter specific tips for each boss.

All information on this page is work in progress and will be updated once the raid has launched.

2.

Legendaries Note

On this page, we are recommending Wildfire Cluster Icon Wildfire Cluster for most bosses. It is only very slightly behind Rylakstalker's Confounding Strikes Icon Rylakstalker's Confounding Strikes for single-target, but is one of the best AoE Legendaries as well. For pure single-target bosses, we recommend Rylakstalker's Confounding Strikes.

For the pure single-target fights, you can also use Nessingwary's Trapping Apparatus Icon Nessingwary's Trapping Apparatus with a Birds of Prey Icon Birds of Prey-based build. This requires somewhat different stats and Conduits, however, and it is not currently within the scope of this guide.
