PVE Beast Mastery Hunter Guide, WoW WotLK 3.3.5a

Beast Mastery Hunter Class Overview

PVE Beast Mastery Hunter Guide, WoW WotLK 3.3.5a

Welcome to my Beast Mastery Hunter DPS guide for World of Warcraft WotLK 3.3.5a. This will be a short guide describing what Spec, Talents, Glyphs, Gems and Enchants you will need in order to succeed in a raid. In the end of the guide there are also some tips and basic rotation for the class.

Beast Mastery Hunter is the best Hunter spec in terms of AoE damage. It also provides respectable single target DPS. These Hunters can tame Exotic Beasts and gain many interesting and unique abilities.

This spec is fun to play and it has a great content soloing potential.

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.

Every other slot is filled with Bright Cardinal Ruby.


Head – Arcanum of Torment
Shoulder – Greater Inscription of the Axe

Bracers – Greater Assault
Gloves – Major Agility

Legs – Icescale Leg Armor

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!


Addons play quite a big role in World of Warcraft and should be used by everyone. The question is, what addons do YOU need? Truth is, every player decides for himself what addons does he need or want. Now, there is a list of must-have addons, without them - you won't be taken seriously, or your game will be much more complicated.

Check out our Addons Page which will provide you with download links and configuration information. Addon version is correct for WoW WotLK 3.3.5a.
