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

Talent tree for our pet is Ferocity. Unlike Beast Mastery Hunters we can't tame Exotic Creatures and don't have those extra 4 talent points.

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.
