PVE Beast Mastery Hunter Guide, WoW WotLK 3.3.5a

Welcome to the Beast Mastery Hunter DPS guide for World of Warcraft Wrath of the Lich King 3.3.5a. In this guide, you will learn about playing a Beast Mastery Hunter in a raid. The guide includes Talents, Glyphs, Gems, Enchantments, Add-ons, Gameplay & Skill rotation tips.

1. Talent Tree

The first build is for people who just hit level 80. Keep in mind, that you can swap a few points from Lethal Shots to Focused Aim in the Marksmanship Tree if you lack Hit Cap. If you have your Hit Cap, then that last point could be spent in Invigoration or Catlike Reflexes, depending on if you have mana problems or not.

The second build is for people with medium or BiS gear. When you have top gear, then Arcane Shot is not in the rotation, since there are much better skills to use. This means that Improved Tracking will be your choice.

Bracers – Greater Assault
Gloves – Major Agility

5. Gameplay & Rotations

First of all, our aspect of choice is Aspect of the Dragonhawk.
Apply Hunter's Mark and send your Pet into the fight. Afterwards, your rotation will look like this:

Serpent Sting →  Arcane Shot →  Multi-Shot →  Steady Shot

Steady Shot is used last and spammed until something better goes out of cooldown. Make sure, that the enemy is always affected by Serpent Sting.

When the target reaches 20% of its health – Kill Shot becomes №1 priority in the rotation.

Now, let’s talk about Pets.

First of all, we have to decide which pet do we need. In terms of PVE and Raiding our top 3 pets are:

Tyrant Devilsaur
Wolfs, including Skoll
Cats, including Gondria

Talent tree for our pet is Ferocity, and here is a spec made with those 4 extra Talent Points from the Beast Mastery talent.

Don’t forget to use Kill Command and other pet skills when you can!

6. Add-ons

Add-ons improve your gameplay by a lot. It is necessary to utilize add-ons, since they play a vital role in your performance, whether you are in a raid, arena or at the auction house.
