PvE Beast Mastery Hunter Talents, Builds & Glyphs

wotlk pve bmglyphconsume

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.

Pets

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.

with the trap weaving build is it not worth dropping one point from cobra strikes to go for the throat? For some reason it sims higher for me no matter what gear I move around. Not sure if anyone else has noticed?

Is Aspect of the Beast or Dragonhawk better for BM? And does it change based on if CDs are active?

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?

I dont agree with the pet options there, After many testing myself… devilsaur is slightly better than wolf in 25man since “Monstrous bite” a 15% pet damage increase pet ability scales better with hunter’s gear set and raid size over a static furious howl 320 ap. Only if you play Orc race though that provides that 5% passive pet damage, would make Devilsaur slightly better in 25man over a wolf. However, in smaller groups like 10man and 6man I would say the dps is on par. And obviously if you test everything on a dummy, without raid buffs that would make wolves slightly better, but in a raid comp with full raid buffs, consumes the devilsaur’s 15% is scaling with all the buffs, gear, consumes, Lust etc.. is the way to go by a huge mile as a “Orc Hunter”.

Also wolfs only have bite(attack) and FH(buff), unlike Devilsaur which have Bite(attack) Monstrous bite(attack/buff 15%) scaling with both pet attacks, normal melee attack and secondary scaling in terms of gear, raid comp/buffs and overall.
