Besides your gear and talents, there are 3 additional ways you as a player can increase your character’s power: gems, enchants, and consumables, which make your character significantly more powerful when combined correctly. Many guilds and raid groups may not invite you at all if you don’t have the correct gems, enchants, and consumables especially when you’re playing a non-meta spec, but worry not! This guide will help you avoid that problem.

Gems

This is the only viable option. since 1 Agility > 1 Crit and a crit version of the same meta is your only other option!

As an alternative, you can use Delicate Scarlet Ruby if you don’t want to commit fully to Beast mastery. Bright Scarlet Ruby is better, but not by much. You can and should use these gems in different color sockets as well if the socket bonus isn’t very beneficial.

You can use these if you need Hit cap but cant get it somewhere from your gear. or if you have a very good socket bonus! (+8 Attack Power socket bonus or 5 Crit + 5 Agility respectively)

[enchanted tear] will activate your meta socket as it counts for every of the required color of gem slots.

Enchants

Really easy to get, an alternative should not be needed. Note that this requires Revered with Knights of the Ebon Blade.

This requires Exalted with the Sons of Hodir, so if you can’t get it in time, you can use Wintergrasp enchant if you can’t get sons of hodir exalted in time instead.

this is the highest agility cloak available for you. – which is the best available stat when it comes to cloak

Is your best primary stat and has the highest amount of it.

+20 Hit is a good alternative if Hit rating is needed but you really don’t want to be enchanting for hit unless it is a last resort.

Hit is most efficient in order from gear > gems > enchants.

the only option for belt in the game.

Your only pants option.

Your best stat and the highest amount of the stat.

Only for enchanters – non enchanters cannot put any enchant on their rings.

Don’t get one-handers as BM, they usually have way less Attack Power – Don’t get Scourgebane either, it’s fine on other specs but doesn’t scale with the pet, this makes it awful for BM.

Consumables

There is no viable alternative

This is your best and cheapest option.

Your best Potion will be Potion of Speed. Potion of Wild Magic may potentially be better in later Phases, but as of Phase 2 you will only need to worry about Potion of Speed.

Is this true? All haste does for BM is speed up auto attack though.

Forgive me if I’m misunderstanding something, but why would a hunter choose potion of wild magic at all? I thought hunters didn’t benefit from spellpower in wotlk.

Often neglected is that Wild Magic increases your Critical rating by 200, not just your Spell Power.
