Dragonflight Beast Master Hunter Talents and Build

Build 1

Most raiders will use this build as their “cookie-cutter” build. It balances personal cooldowns for survivability, damage output, and crowd control. It will be a solid base build if you want to play Beast Mastery Hunter professionally.

Build 2

As a “cookie cutter” build, this does drop Tar Trap and Tranq Shot, which are more useful in various situations than AOE damage reduction.These talents aren’t 100% free, but there are ways to make the tradeoff as easy as possible.

Class Talents Explained

Row 1

The Hunter class comes with Kill Command by default, which is good because it’s a core ability. The concussive shot is useful in solo play or PVP, but it isn’t so useful in PVE. As Kill Shot is a powerful attack that gets better with talent, we will choose it.

Row 2

Trailblazer is renowned for its mobility. It might come in handy for other specs; however, Beast Mastery is not one of them. Speaking of mobility, Posthaste is a great utility talent to help players get out of damage. The Kill Shot talent was also buff in one row. It makes sense to increase its crit by 25%.

Row 3

The Wilderness Medicine talent is great for soloing content since you can heal your pets easily during PVE encounters. Counter Shot is an interrupt that every talent build should have. Hunters are favored for groups because they can not only pump damage but also provide a ranged interrupt. You can mitigate incoming damage and stay in the fight with Natural Mending, a personal cooldown.

Row 4

Several key talents can be found here. Tar Trap, Misdirection, and Survival of the Fittest offer utility across the board. For example, you may not always select Tar Trap and Misdirect, but you must still consider them if you want to have a competitive edge.

Row 5

Although tranquilizing shots have their moments, they are not really needed at the moment. There is nothing to fear flexing into this and it only requires Tar Trap to be acquired. Entrapment is useless without Tar Trap, but it’s not a bad pick-up for solo content. Improve Steel Trap if you plan on picking it later in the tree. There is a choice between the Lone Survivor and Nature’s Endurance nodes. 

Lone Survivor has the advantage since you can employ Survival of the Fittest more frequently. Born To Be Wild fits the same description. You want to use Survival as much as possible because it’s one of your most crucial personal cooldowns.

Row 6

There are a lot of uses for this row of the tree. Scare Beast is pretty much only applicable if you’re soloing, and even then, it’s not that exciting. Despite its use in Shadowlands content, it is rare and far between. Regardless of whether you’re picking up Tranq Shot or High Explosive Trap, you’ll want Improved Tranq Shot as your focus. Intimidation and High Explosive Trap are both great on paper, but they’re not worth it in practice.

When combined with excellent AOE, Binding Shot is a CC ability that can group up enemies. It buffs your other cooldown, Natural Mending. While camouflage does have limited use in PVE, it shines when soloing or engaging in PVP. Although Sentinel Owl is underpowered, it is still a good option because it ignores line of sight, even though it is underpowered compared to the MM version.

When the enhanced version can either grant the party leech or the whole party unfettered vision, it is something that just cannot be disregarded.

Row 7

You can open up the bottom left of the tree without spending multiple points on Tranq Shot talents with Binding Shackles, which buffs certain crowd control abilities. It’s not the best, but it lets you open it up. Hunter’s Avoidance helps you take less damage. Pathfinding gives you faster movement. The Sentinel Owl upgrade improves your mobility even further.

Row 8

The damage done by your pet is increased by Beast Master, who also unlocks two excellent capstone skills. Your crit goes up with Keen Eyesight. When you crit, Master Marksman has the option to add a bleed effect.

Row 9

A new version of Kill Command is available. Serrated Shots boost both your bleeds and the damage from Serpent Sting. The ability to buff bleeds, which comes from the BM ability Barbed Shot, is extremely beneficial even if you don’t get Serpent Sting. The Arctic Bola lets you throw an Arctic Bola at a target. It sounds awesome, but as a Beast Mastery Hunter, you really don’t want the bottom right corner of the tree.

Row 10

This is the capstone talent row. The best Dragonflight Beast Master Hunter skills you can learn are here.

Boosts Kill Command can be found in Kill Instinct and Alpha Predator. Although Killer Instinct deals more damage to low-health enemies, Alpha Predator, which gives you two charges and more damage, is generally preferred. The Serrated Shots talent buffs Steel Trap, a powerful stun that also causes a bleed.

Though Stampe sounds cool, it’s not where it needs to be, so you’re more likely to choose Death Chakram, as it’s better for damage and better for your damage. While explosive shot and barrage are solid talents, they don’t fit the Beast Mastery profile. If you don’t have Serpent’s Sting, you can’t use poison injection and hydro’s bite.

Dragonflight Beast Master Hunter Specialization Build

Build 1

This arrangement will be used to maximise your damage in default settings if you want to get the job done quickly and easily.

Build 2

When it comes to Dire Beast, going all in comes with a price. Wailing Arrow and Wild Call must be abandoned. If the stats support it, it is worthwhile. Having all of these summoned beasts by your side is also a lot of fun.

Specialization Talents Explained

Row 1

In this row, only Cobra Shot is a skill. Almost every other Dragonflight Beast Master Hunter talent can only be unlocked with it, thus you must have it!

Row 2

Three of these talents are important for you. Pack Tactics generates Focus. Multi-Shot has been a Hunter staple since day one of World of Warcraft and is still extremely effective. Barbed Shot is another essential talent. Both trees buff it.

Row 3

This talent used to be very important, but not so much in the new Dragonflight talent tree. Kindred Spirits increases both your and your pet’s focus, while Training Expert makes your pet do more damage.

Row 4

The Animal Companion allows you to have two pets out instead of just one. With Beast Cleave, you can have your pets cleave after a Multi-Shot. For a class notorious for its single-target damage, this is a huge advantage. Sharp Barbs boosts your cleaving damage, while Killer Command enhances your Kill Command damage.

Row 5

Despite being completely free, Cobra Sting is not worth it, particularly due to its location in the talent tree. The Thrill of the Hunt, however, gives you more Crit. Kill Cleave adds a cleave effect to your Kill Command. Murder of Crows/Bloodshed is close, but ultimately falls short against other talents. Cobra Senses is not worth it because Cobra String is not a major component of the rotation anymore.

Row 6

During Dragonflight beta, Dire Beast has been discussed a lot. It enhances gameplay and helps to engage players, but many have said it isn’t as powerful as a “cookie cutter” default build.

Row 7

A talent build based on maximizing Kill Shot would be best suited to Hunter’s Prey. Stomp gives your pets increased cleave damage. Barbed Wrath shortens the cooldown of Bestial Wrath, an essential ability. Wild Call can shorten the cooldown for Barbed Shots. Cobra Shot is boosted by Aspect of the Wild, but you don’t use it very often.

Row 8

A Dire Command proc summons a Dire Beast as part of your Kill Command. This talent is based solely on the strength of the Dire Beast. When you pop Bestial Wrath, Scent of Blood gives you two Barbed Shot charges immediately. One with the Call resets your Barbed Shot cooldown, but it doesn’t feel incredibly exciting or worthwhile. Master Handler/Snake Bite increases your Aspect of the Wild.

Row 9

The Dire Beast is also benefited by Dire Frenzy. The Dragonflight talent tree is a welcome addition because it allows for abilities of “borrowed power” to remain in the game, which is why Wailing Arrow is a Beast Mastery talent. Stacks of Frenzy can be piled up with Barbed Shot, buffing pet damage. A pet summoner can be summoned by calling on the Wild.

Row 10

This is the capstone talent row. It is supposed to be the best Dragonflight Beast Master Hunter talent that you can go with.

One of the Dire Beast talents is Dire Pack. In addition to reducing the Kill Command cooldown for every five Dire Beasts summoned, this capstone also reduces the Kill Command overall cooldown and Focus cost. This talent affects Cobra Shots, so we’re ignoring everything else. Plus, Piercing Fangs increases your pet’s critical strike during Bestial Wrath, which we can’t miss.

Call of the Wild receives various benefits from Wild Instincts and Bloody Frenzy, which doesn’t make them worthwhile purchases by themselves.
