Dragonflight Spell Glossary for Survival Hunter

This will cover synergies, cooldowns, and core concepts of the spec to get it working. If you already have experience and are very comfortable with Survival, it is okay to skip past this, otherwise this is a great point to get a base understanding before moving onto later sections of the guide that covers nuances of gameplay.

Note that this page merely lists the Talents and explains them. For information on the best talents to use for your Survival Hunter in Dragonflight, check out our Talents page below.

2.

Main Resource for Survival Hunter in Dragonflight

Hunters and their pets use a unique resource, called Focus. Focus works in much the same way as other class resources, like Rage and Energy, in the sense that some abilities grant Focus, while others cost Focus to be used.

A Survival Hunter's Focus has a maximum capacity of 100, and regenerates at a slow rate that varies by spec. In addition to this passive flow of incoming Focus, certain talents and abilities will amplify your Focus regeneration, or simply generate more of it.

Hunter pet Focus works similarly, and is of no concern to you as you cannot do anything to modify it, nor will you be casting pet abilities manually.

As a general rule, you should always have enough Focus to cast your abilities as soon as they come off cooldown, but also to never have 100 Focus (as any extra Focus you generate would then go to waste).
