Introduction

Hey, I’m Huntoper, I’ve been playing BM Hunter since BfA pre-patch. This is my very first guide and I hope it will help you out in some way.

Beast Mastery Hunter is a ranged spec that has very high mobility that can do all their damage while moving. Thanks to pets, this is one of the best classes for soloing content. This class also grants a bunch of utilities such as Binding Shot, Tar Trap, Freezing Trap, Intimidation, Misdirection and Primal Rage, as well as an immunity Aspect of the Turtle. For Aoe Damage, BM Hunter has Beast Cleave for sustained damage.

The weakness of this spec is that depending on your pet to deal the majority of your damage means if your pet is stuck, you don't do damage. Also, pet travel to the next target might take some time in fights where you must switch targets. This spec scales well with secondary stats so it might not be the best spec for the first raid tier, but that might change as the expansion progresses.
