Let the hunt begin…

Overview



Hi, I’m Moofzy 🙂 A bit about myself. I’m currently a top ranked Hunter in Mythic+, and have been consistently since it launched in Legion. I also write Hunter things for Wowhead. I’m in charge of most of their Hunter coverage, including class guides, news and pets. I currently raid in Intern Made this Boss (US 20, World 82). I commentate WoW events such as the Race to World First events for Method. I’ve also started working with others to build Keystone Masters, a community ran Mythic+ tournament.

In this guide, you’ll find everything you need to know to succeed as a Hunter in Mythic+. The first couple sections cover the basics such as gear, essences, azerite, talents, etc. After that, we do a deep dive into rotations and get into specific dungeon strategies. If you already know the basics, use the navigation above to head directly to the section you’re interested in, or use the Quick Links area below.

Quick Links

Use this section to navigate to a specific section for Beast Mastery, Marksmanship or Survival. At the moment, the website only covers Beast Mastery in full. As it expands, the other specs will be listed here as well. For Shadowlands, I plan to dive into all three specs right away. You can also utilize the navigation links at the top of each page.




Recent Hunter Changes

This section gives you detailed information in all of the most recent changes, buffs and nerfs to any of the three Hunter specs. I will only keep the most recent information regarding each spec.

Beast Mastery


  • As of patch 8.2.5, Thrill of the Hunt’s Critical Strike benefit now works with pets. It is now the go-to talent in all situations.
  • As of patch 8.3, Animal Companion has been fixed! The responsiveness and bugs experienced when summoning/resurrecting your pets no longer occur.

Marksmanship


  • All spells and abilities have been buffed by 5% across the board. This does not make Marksmanship viable compared to Beast Mastery.

Other Hunter Mythic+ Streamers


  • Gingi – Gingi raids in Method and is a member of the MDI team Method EU. He typically pushes keys towards the end of every season. He likes to play Hunter but he’s also a good multi-classer so you might see him on some other classes from time to time.
  • Petdog – Petdog has been one of the top Mythic+ Hunters the past few seasons and finished Season 3 at Rank 1. He doesn’t speak much English, but he’s a god tier Hunter and is always pushing high keys when he goes live.
  • Randire – A big boy EU Hunter. Streams sporadically but generally he’s pushing high keys when he goes live.
  • Azortharion – Writes the Hunter guides for Icyveins. He has consistently been a top raider over the years but has just recently gotten into Mythic+. An excellent Hunter to learn from.

Aside from the names listed above, a ton of streamers and top pushers have swapped to Hunter due to how good it is at the moment. If you want some more Hunter content, feel free to check out streamers such as Dratnos, Tettles or Shakib. While they don’t typically main Hunter, they’re all very good players who stream often!
