On this page, you will find information about which Covenant you should be unlocking. After choosing your Covenant, you will have to unlock your best Soulbind and collect Conduits. This page will outline which of these is the best, including the correct Soulbind path you should choose. Finally, we will tell you which Legendary Powers are the best to have for PvP and in which situations you should be swapping them.

This page is part of our Survival Hunter PvP Guide.


Best Covenant for Survival Hunter in PvP

For more information about what Covenants bring you, please refer to our page about Covenant abilities for Hunters.

It is important to choose the correct Covenant, as it has many impacts on your gameplay. Your Covenant will give you both a Covenant ability and a class ability. The next choice you have will be Soulbinds and Conduits. All of these are Covenant-specific and they are different based on which you choose. Here are the best Covenants for Survival Hunter.

  1. Venthyr is by far the best Covenant for Survival Hunters in PvP, with Flayed Shot Icon Flayed Shot enabling empowered Kill Shot Icon Kill Shots that will make you much more powerful from range, on top of vastly increasing your DPS in general.

Best Soulbinds for Survival Hunter in PvP

Soulbinds are unlocked as you progress your character with a Covenant. These unlock powerful paths that can be taken to give you powerful spells, important passives, etc.


Venthyr Soulbind

Here is the Soulbind and path you should take if you chose Venthyr.

At the end of this path, you will have gained more damage from Thrill Seeker Icon Thrill Seeker and extra mobility from Familiar Predicaments Icon Familiar Predicaments.

You can also choose to go for General Draven as an alternative, enabling a second Finesse Conduit and alternative Soulbind Abilities at the cost of quite a bit of damage.


Best Conduits for Survival Hunters in PvP

Conduits are passive buffs that you can use to fill empty slots in your Soulbind Trees. There are three types of Conduits: Potency, Endurance, and Finesse. Here are the best Conduits for each of those different types:


Best Potency Conduits for Survival Hunters in PvP

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, and empowers your buffed Kill Shot Icon Kill Shots even further. Other than this, we prefer Stinging Strike Icon Stinging Strike and either Deadly Tandem Icon Deadly Tandem or Strength of the Pack Icon Strength of the Pack, depending on your preference. Deadly Tandem will lengthen your burst while Strength of the Pack is a more flat DPS increase.


Best Endurance Conduits for Survival Hunters in PvP

  1. 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.

Best Finesse Conduits for Survival Hunters in PvP

  1. Ambuscade Icon Ambuscade reduces the cooldown of Disengage Icon Disengage whenever a trap is triggered. We normally use only one Finesse Conduit, but using this and Tactical Retreat Icon Tactical Retreat in combination with alternative Soulbinds like General Draven can be exceptionally strong.
  2. 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.

Best Legendaries for Survival Hunters in PvP

Legendaries have many different effects and some can alter how you should use some of your abilities. For more information on Legendaries, check out our general guide on them.

Here are the best Legendaries for Survival Hunters.

  1. You have multiple options here. For the most part, you will be using Craven Strategem Icon Craven Strategem as a defensive option. Your offensive options are Call of the Wild Icon Call of the Wild (which also reduces your Aspect of the Turtle Icon Aspect of the Turtle cooldown), and Wildfire Cluster Icon Wildfire Cluster which is simply excellent, raw damage.
  2. Pouch of Razor Fragments Icon Pouch of Razor Fragments is a more damage-focused Legendary Power. Use this if you do not expect to be the primary target, or if you cannot make use of Craven Strategem Icon Craven Strategem to evade damage.
