Notable Talents

  • The Beast Within – Reduces your mana cost, increases your damage done, and makes you CC immune to almost everything when popping bestial wrath
  • Beast Mastery – Let’s you spend more talent points on your pet, don’t forget it when taking this talent.
  • Serpent Swiftness – 20% passive ranged attack speed – still is a huge talent just as a comparison it is the same amount of attack speed a troll racial cooldown gives – except it is permanent.

Talent Build

This build is the best option if you are able to reliably use Explosive Trap.

This allocates a lot more DPS to the actual hunter relative to your pet compared to the early build.

Major Glyphs

Minor Glyphs


If a Hunter’s raid group is not missing any buffs or debuffs offered by other pets, your best choice is a Wolf (just like Marksmanship and Survival), but at least you can camp a spectral version called spectral version of it. She won’t bring the furious howl buff you’re looking for, but her damage abilities make spectral beasts about equal in the hope to bring some spice to the pet variety. These are only tamable by Beast Mastery Hunters!

The rest of the pets, I would personally deem too big of a DPS loss to consider going with, especially as a Beast Mastery Hunter.

Pet Talents

These are good options for your pet talents — if you really want to min-max you can put the point out of Bloodthirsty for a defensive option, however, seeing as pets rarely die in Wrath of the Lich King, I would prefer the quality of life of never having to worry about your pet’s happiness mid-fight.

They aren’t the best choice, but realistically they also aren’t that much lower than the other options. If your guild is fine with you playing BM, run whatever pet you want.

Hey, thx for the guide ! Just wondering, why is the wolf better ? I understand it’s giving strong ap bonus, but since we focus on having our pet deal most of the damages, aren’t T-rex better?
