The Best Survival Hunter PvE DPS build

Top Tier Hunter DPS build for World of Warcraft Raids in Patch 8.2.0

You can find all our Pocket Guides for other World of Warcraft classes right here: Best WoW Builds

Spec Overview

Survival Hunter is currently the second best DPS class in World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth. It ranks #2 on our WoW DPS Tier List  Unlike the other two Hunter's specializations, Survival is melee and offers unparalleled mobility for a melee character. At the same time, it has a very high single-target and AoE DPS and is one of the most well-rounded classes in World of Warcraft. Survival Hunter can also control Pets, and you can time your powerful attacks with them. Survival Hunter utilizes two-handed weapons, mainly Spears and Staves, and if you decide to min-max your build, it appears that Gnome race leads by a small margin on the DPS charts.

Statistics Priority

  1. Agility - your basic attribute which increases Attack Damage and the damage of most of the Survival Hunter's abilities
  1. Haste - by far the best secondary attribute for a Survival Hunter. It increases the Attack Speed of your character and your Pet, as well as, reduces the cooldown on some of your attributes
  1. Critical Strike - grants increased chance to Critically Hit with your attacks and abilities dealing double damage
  1. Versatility - increases all your damage done, and reduces all damage taken
  1. Mastery - increases the damage you deal with abilities that cost focus and also provides moderate self-healing

 

The Best Talent Choices

Alpha Predator
Level 15: 
Recommended choice - Alpha Predator
Alpha PredatorAlpha Predator - which gives your Kill CommandKill Command two charges, and causes it to deal 30% increased damage. It's one of the two recommended options on this tier, while it provides the highest DPS in the hands of a more experienced player, it is slightly more difficult to master than playing with Viper's VenomViper's Venom.
Viper's VenomViper's Venom is another viable choice on this tier. It gives your Raptor StrikeRaptor Strike a chance to cause your next Serpent StingSerpent Sting free and do an additional 250% damage initially. It's fairly easy to use and fits into most of the possible situations, making it a more suitable choice for general usage. Terms of EngagementTerms of Engagement, on the other hand, increases the damage of HarpoonHarpoon and makes it generate 20 Focus over 10 seconds. It has no use in higher tier content, but can be very useful during leveling and exploring.
Guerrilla Tactics
Level 30: 
Recommended choice - Guerrilla Tactics
Guerrilla TacticsGuerrilla Tactics - which causes your Wildfire BombWildfire Bomb to have two additional charges and deal 100% increased damage, is the best choice on this Tier. It is the best choice for both single-target DPS and when burst AoE damage is required.
Hydra's BiteHydra's Bite shines when you can apply multiple poisons using Serpent's StingSerpent Sting combined with Latent PoisonLatent Poison. However, it has greatly reduced usability in short fights and when you have to deal with multiple targets. ButcheryButchery is a decent AoE attack which helps you deal with multiple enemies instantaneously. 

Level 45: 
Recommended choice - Natural Mending
Natural Mending - Reduces the remaining cooldown of Hunter's Exhilaration by one second for each 20 Focus you spend on abilities; This gives you on average a 30 seconds cooldown reduction. This grants very good self-healing in Raids and Mythic+ Dungeons boosting your survivability greatly
Trailblazer increases your movement speed by 30% if you have not attacked for 3 seconds which is a nice mobility bonus between packs, but in general quite useless in actual encounters. Camouflage grants healing over time and puts you into stealth for one minute. It grants considerably less healing compared to Natural Mending and is usually used in PvP builds
Bloodseeker
Level 60: 
Recommended choice - Bloodseeker
BloodseekerBloodseeker - causes your Kill CommandKill Command to inflict bleeding on your target for 8 seconds, and increases your (and your Pet's) attack speed by 10% for every bleeding enemy. It is the single best pick for this Tier which is useful in all types of situations. It makes you deal considerably more damage than other Talents here, and it truly shines in fights against several targets
Steel TrapSteel Trap deals a moderate amount of damage and immobilizes your target for 20 seconds. It deals way less damage than Bloodseeker, and can only be considered as a crowd-control skill. On the other hand, A Murder of CrowsA Murder of Crows has near to none usability, making it only viable during leveling and open world farming when the cooldown reset makes it a valid choice.
Posthaste
Level 75: 
Recommended choice - Posthaste
Posthaste - Using Disengage will remove all movement impairing effects and grant 50% increased movement speed for a short duration. It's our recommended Talent choice for this tier which grants decent mobility bonuses and greatly helps out with repositioning yourself.
Born to be Wild reduces the cooldowns of Aspect of the Cheetah and Aspect of the Turtle which is the best option when it comes to pure mobility. Binding Shot is an AoE snare which lets you snare multiple enemies if they move 5 yards away from the position of the arrow. Since it is no longer an AoE stun, it has greatly reduced utility and is very situational.
Mongoose Bite
Level 90: 
Recommended choice - Mongoose Bite
Mongoose BiteMongoose Bite - replaces Raptor StrikeRaptor Strike and becomes a powerful attack that deals increased damage with each consecutive hit, stacking up to 5 times. This scales greatly with high Attack Speed/Haste making it the best pick on this tier. It works best during single-target fights.
Tip of the SpearTip of the Spear causes Kill CommandKill Command to increase the damage of your Raptor StrikeRaptor Strike by 20%, stacking up to three times. Overall, a very competitive choice when it comes to DPS in both AoE and single-target fights, however, we find it more suitable with characters with slightly lower Haste Rating. Flanking StrikeFlanking Strike makes you and your pet charge on your target dealing high burst damage. It can be found useful in Mythic+ Dungeons. It could also be used in PvP to finish off your enemies, but in general, it grants significantly less DPS than Mongoose BiteMongoose Bite.
Wildfire Infusion
Level 100: 
Recommended choice - Wildfire Infusion
Wildfire InfusionWildfire Infusion - casting Wildfire BombWildfire Bomb makes your next cast have an additional effect. It grants the highest bonus DPS out of all Talents on this tier and since you can see which bonus you got, you can adjust your rotation accordingly for optimal performance.
Birds of PreyBirds of Prey makes your Raptor StrikeRaptor Strike and CarveCarve increase the duration of Coordinated AssaultCoordinated Assault by 1.5 seconds with each cast. This is the preferred choice if it comes to solely increase your single-target DPS. ChakramsChakrams, on the other hand, is a decent AoE/cleave ability, however, because of high cost and cooldown, it's not recommended.

 

Basic Survival Hunter Rotation

Survival Hunter's rotation may seem complex at first because of various effects Wildfire InfusionWildfire Infusion can have, and how it's affected by Alpha PredatorAlpha Predator. If you have played other builds, you may see how it affects the decision making for Survival Hunters.

Use the following priority list to maximize your Single Target Damage output:

 

Tips and Tricks for Improving your Gameplay

  1. Learn how to manage your primary Resource - Focus. Never run on capped Focus, nor have it too low to pop in your cooldowns when needed. Excess Focus is best spent on Mongoose BiteMongoose Bite
  1. Make sure to understand the core mechanics of each fight and how to use your defensive cooldowns. Survival Hunter offers middling defensive capabilities for a melee class
  1. Try to never fight with two stacks of Wildfire BombWildfire Bomb, always make sure you can it regardless of your rotation whenever it's getting close
  1. Always analyze and try to improve upon your mistakes, because practice makes perfect

Welcome to the Survival Hunter DPS guide for World of Warcraft Wrath of the Lich King 3.3.5a. In this guide, you will learn about playing a Survival Hunter in a raid. The guide includes Talents, Glyphs, Gems, Enchantments, Add-ons, Gameplay & Skill rotation tips.

Talent Tree

Survival Hunter Talent Tree Wow 3.3.5a

Glyphs

Major Glyphs

Minor Glyphs

Gems

Gems are situational and depend on the build and equipment. They are used to reach the required stat caps.

Yellow gems should be picked depending on the required stats. Hit rating should be a priority.

Enchants

Rotation

Survival Hunters don’t have a rotation, just some basic rules.

Stat Priority

Hit -> Agility -> Crit -> Attack Power & Armor Penetration -> Haste

Hit cap for raids is 8% (263 rating). New hunters should aim for at least 5% (164 rating) to always hit level 80 mobs. 3% can be obtained from Focused Aim, another 1% from Draenei passive Heroic Presence.

Agility is the main stat for Survival Hunters. No cap here, stack as much as possible as it converts into damage. Next, you should aim for 60% Crit Chance while buffed. Haste is down the list, probably one of the least required stats in the build.

Pets

Pve Marksmanship Survival Hunter Pet Talent Tree Wow 3.3.5a

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:

  • Wolfs – Furious Howl is what makes this pet #1
  • Wasps – Sting can be a powerful debuff, but it doesn’t stack with similar effects on the target.
  • Raptors & Cats – Less DPS than Wolfs and Wasps, but still viable.

The talent tree for our pet is Ferocity. Unlike Beast Mastery Hunters we can’t tame Exotic Creatures and don’t have those extra 4 talent points.

Don’t forget to use Kill Command and other pet skills when you can!

Introducing the Survival Hunter

Survival is the Melee Hunter spec. It is a relatively mobile Melee spec with a lot of heavily themed abilities. It has a very unique playstyle compared to any other Melee spec, and it is also one of the least played specs in the game, although this is not because it is bad by any means.

Patch 9.1 Changes for Hunters

Covenant Recommendation Change in Patch 9.1

ATTENTION

As of Patch 9.1 the recommended Covenant for Survival Hunter HAS CHANGED. Please check out the Covenant page of this guide for more information.

6.

Leveling a Survival Hunter

If you want to play a Survival Hunter, but currently do not have one at max level, you can check out our leveling guide for tips on your journey.

Survival Hunter Leveling Guide

Once you reach max level, it can be somewhat overwhelming to completely change the way you play by suddenly implementing a large number of addons in a short space of time, especially if they have a heavy visual impact on your UI. We recommend using some of the more basic addons recommended on our Addons page below while leveling, so that you have more time to get used to them during the easier phases of playing your class.

Basics of Survival Hunter Gameplay

Survival Hunter is a spec that is heavily about Focus management, and knowing your priorities.

The core of the gameplay is generating Focus with Kill Command IconKill Command and spending it with Raptor Strike IconRaptor Strike/Mongoose Bite IconMongoose Bite, as well as casting Wildfire Bomb IconWildfire Bomb off cooldown and maintaining your Serpent Sting IconSerpent Sting DoT. The difficulty of the spec comes from knowing when to ignore Wildfire Bomb and Serpent Sting in favor of casting Mongoose Bite IconMongoose Bite (the popular, meta talent) to maximize your benefit from its Mongoose Fury IconMongoose Fury buff.

If you are an absolute beginner to the spec, but would like to learn the basic fundamentals of the class, recommend looking through the Spell Summary first, as well as the Easy Mode page linked below.

Below, you will find the most important pages for learning the intricacies of the spec.

How to Gear Up A Survival Hunter

Despite the fact that gearing has become more challenging, due to the huge number of variables that depend on your character, you can find information on how best to gear as Survival on our dedicated gearing page, which includes the current Best in Slot from this tier.

Survival Hunter BiS and Gear

Once you have started to gear, you will need to make sure that you have the appropriate consumables, gems, enchants, and more. We have a dedicated page for exactly this, as shown below, as well as the stats page, where you can find more information on the possibility of a changing stat priority and the necessary changes you may need to make for consumables.

Endgame as a Survival Hunter

Starting off as Survival can look very different from the absolute end-game raiding and progression as one. Our Mythic+, Torghast, Raiding, and PvP guides can guide you to performing as well as possible, regardless of your focus in end-game content.

As of Patch 9.1 the recommended Covenant for Survival Hunter HAS CHANGED. Please check out the Covenant page of this guide for more information.

2.

Talent Choices for Survival Hunter

Talents can be freely changed when out of combat and in a rested XP area (such as an inn or a capital city). Moreover, Tome of the Still Mind IconTome of the Still Mind and Codex of the Still Mind IconCodex of the Still Mind can be used to temporarily allow players to change talents anywhere, as long as they are out of combat.

3.

Talent Cheat Sheets for Survival Hunter

These talent recommendations are based on simulations and logs/statistics to help you pick the best choice for any situation.

3.1.

Best Single-Target Talents for Survival Hunter (NTA Build)

This is the best Survival build for almost all raiding and single-target fights.

3.2.

Best AoE and Mythic+ Talents for Survival Hunter (WFI Build)

This is our recommended Survival build for encounters with cleave and intermittent AoE, as well as Mythic+ dungeons.

4.

NTA vs WFI

NTA and WFI refer to two completely different Survival Hunter builds. Both are covered in this guide. In addition to these names, you may see them referred to as "VV" or "AP", which is determined by whether Alpha Predator IconAlpha Predator or Viper's Venom IconViper's Venom is being used.

NTA is a single-target focused build that uses the Nesingwary's Trapping Apparatus IconNesingwary's Trapping Apparatus Legendary which gives it its name. Combining this Legendary with Birds of Prey IconBirds of Prey, it is possible to extend the Coordinated Assault IconCoordinated Assault buff for long periods of time. This build is the bread and butter of competitive Survival Raiding. It is one of the most complicated, but also rewarding DPS builds in World of Warcraft.

WFI is an AoE-build that uses the Wildfire Infusion IconWildfire Infusion Talent. A variety of Legendaries are possible for this build, but it will most commonly be Wildfire Cluster IconWildfire Cluster or Rylakstalker's Confounding Strikes IconRylakstalker's Confounding Strikes depending on if you are using it in an AoE-heavy or single-target heavy context. This build is a lot easier and more forgiving than NTA, and we recommend starting out with it if you are new to the spec.

The WFI build can be used to do competitive single-target damage in raids, but the NTA build cannot be used to do competitive AoE damage in Mythic+, since the constant downtime will make it impossible to keep up Coordinated Assault IconCoordinated Assault consistently.

4.1.

Raiding

The builds suggested above do not account for specific fights in the current raid tier. If you wish to have a boss-by-boss breakdown of talent choices, you should check out our dedicated page below.

4.2.

Mythic+

Mythic+ can potentially require a mix of certain AoE and Single-Target talents, depending on affixes and other variables. If you want advice that is specific to Mythic+, you should check out our page below.

4.3.

How To Use Survival Hunter Talents

Some talents will require you to play in a particular way to get the most out of them. You can find more information on how your rotation will look after selecting your talents on our rotation page below.

Survival Hunter Rotation and Cooldowns

5.

Best Pet for Survival Hunter

Firstly, it is important to note that all pets do the same damage. They only differ in their utility and occasionally defensive capabilities.

For Raiding and Mythic+, we recommend using a Ferocity pet in pretty much all situations. They grant you Leech, which causes you to heal yourself whenever you do damage. This self-sustain is extremely useful and makes the spec partly live up to its name in Raiding situations.

For open-world content and leveling, we also recommend using a Ferocity pet. The Special Abilities of Scalehides are generally the best for such content, due to their defensive abilities.

Cunning Pets provide a movement speed bonus, trading in defensive passives for mobility. This is useful when you are farming old, trivial content.

You can see a list of all pet families and their special abilities on the //www.icy-veins.com/wow/survival-hunter-pve-dps-spell-summary page of this guide.

6.

Tier 1 (Level 15) Talents for Survival Hunter

This row consists of talents that improve your DPS in various ways.

Viper's Venom IconViper's Venom is most commonly used with Birds of Prey IconBirds of Prey-based builds for pure single-target situations and should be your default pick for those. In some gear combinations, it can also beat Alpha Predator IconAlpha Predator for Wildfire Infusion IconWildfire Infusion-based builds and AoE, but this is not very common.

Alpha Predator IconAlpha Predator should be used for pretty much all situations where you are also using Wildfire Infusion IconWildfire Infusion, such as cleave fights, AoE, or fights with irregular uptime that prevent the use of Birds of Prey IconBirds of Prey.

Terms of Engagement IconTerms of Engagement should never be chosen.

7.

Tier 2 (Level 25) Talents for Survival Hunter

This row consists of talents that improve your DPS in various ways.

Guerrilla Tactics IconGuerrilla Tactics should be chosen for all situations.

Hydra's Bite IconHydra's Bite should never be chosen.

Butchery IconButchery should only be chosen for purely 2-target situations.

8.

Tier 3 (Level 30) Talents for Survival Hunter

This row consists of talents that improve your utility, mobility and survivability.

Your choice of talent in this tier is mostly situational, but for general survivability in raids and dungeons, we recommend Natural Mending IconNatural Mending by default.

9.

Tier 4 (Level 35) Talents for Survival Hunter

This row consists of talents that improve your DPS in various ways.

Bloodseeker IconBloodseeker should be chosen for all WFI build situations.

Steel Trap IconSteel Trap is an essential part of the NTA Build and is best when combined with Nesingwary's Trapping Apparatus IconNesingwary's Trapping Apparatus, and Birds of Prey IconBirds of Prey.

A Murder of Crows IconA Murder of Crows should never be chosen.

10.

Tier 5 (Level 40) Talents for Survival Hunter

This row consists of talents that improve your utility, mobility and survivability.

Your choice of talent in this tier is mostly situational, but for general survivability in raids and dungeons, we recommend Posthaste IconPosthaste by default.

11.

Tier 6 (Level 45) Talents for Survival Hunter

This row consists of talents that improve your DPS in various ways.

Tip of the Spear IconTip of the Spear should be chosen for mixed situations, such as raid fights with some AoE moments, or 2-3 target cleave situations.

Mongoose Bite IconMongoose Bite should be chosen for all single-target situations.

Flanking Strike IconFlanking Strike should be chosen for all heavy AoE and Mythic+ situations.

12.

Tier 7 (Level 50) Talents for Survival Hunter

Tier 7 talents offer you a choice between 3 talents that increase your DPS.

Wildfire Infusion IconWildfire Infusion should be chosen as part of the WFI build to which it gives its name. It is the default AoE build and is strong for single-target as well.

Birds of Prey IconBirds of Prey should be chosen as part of the NTA build when paired with Nesingwary's Trapping Apparatus IconNesingwary's Trapping Apparatus and Steel Trap IconSteel Trap, which is the best build for single-target and most raiding.

Chakrams IconChakrams should never be chosen.

Wildfire Infusion

PvP Talents (War Mode)

Since Battle for Azeroth, there is the option to go into "War Mode". Enabling War Mode provides the following benefits:

  • PvP talents enabled in the outdoor world.
  • At least 10% increase in World Quest rewards at maximum level.
  • 10% more experience gained while leveling.
  • Earn Conquest Points which can reward gear every week.

With the benefits of enabling War Mode for leveling and PvE content, it is recommended to enable the feature to maximize your leveling and rewards at maximum level. However, you will make yourself available for open world PvP, and the possibility to be "ganked" while leveling or doing World Quests exists.

Survival Hunter PvP guide

13.1.

Survival Hunter War Mode Talents

In this section, we will rank the PvP talents best for leveling and doing solo / small group PvE content. Below is a ranking of all PvP Talents for Survival Hunter.

13.1.1.

Survival Hunter PvP Talents

  1. Sticky Tar IconSticky Tar reduces the melee attack speed of enemies affected by your Tar Trap IconTar Trap by 80% for 5 seconds. This can be used to significantly weaken melee attackers when you are close to dying.
  2. Dragonscale Armor IconDragonscale Armor causes magical DoT effects to do 20% less damage to you. This is a decent survivability option.
  3. Survival Tactics IconSurvival Tactics causes Feign Death IconFeign Death to clear all harmful magic effects from you. It also reduces all damage taken by 99% for 1.5 seconds. This is useful for narrowly avoiding death from caster mobs, especially when they have already fired a spell at you.

You can consider the other options to be essentially down to preference.

Pet Talents

Pets do not have talent trees. Instead, different types of pet belong to one of three difference specs: Ferocity, Tenacity, and Cunning.

Each specialisation grants your pet a few specific abilities. Currently, there is no DPS difference between the different pet specs. The only differences are in utility.

Recommended Talents

Boss specific recommendations and strategy:

Raid Bosses

Talents Discussion

Tier 1 (15)

Survival Hunter Viper's Venom TalentViper's VenomPassive
Survival Hunter Terms of Engagement TalentTerms of EngagementPassive
Survival Hunter Alpha Predator TalentAlpha PredatorPassive

Viper's Venom gives your Raptor Strike a chance to make your next Serpent Sting cost no focus and increases its initial hit dmg by 250%. This is currently your strongest single target option if coupled with the Nesingwary's Trapping Apparatus trapping build.

Terms of Engagement changes Harpoon into a DPS ability which applies a bleed, restores 20 focus over 10 seconds, and has the additional effect of resetting harpoon's cooldown if anything nearby dies.

This talent is under-tuned and very clunky to use due to the harpoon having a minimum range.

Alpha Predator increases Kill Commands' damage by 30% on top of giving it a second charge which smoothes out survivals rotation with the added bonus, making your rotation a lot more forgiving. This is your best talent in this row if you are not playing the trapping build.

Raiding:Viper's Venom / Alpha Predator

Mythic+:Alpha Predator

Tier 2 (25)

Survival Hunter Guerrilla Tactics TalentGuerrilla TacticsPassive
Survival Hunter Hydra's Bite TalentHydra's BitePassive
Survival Hunter Butchery TalentButcheryInstant

Guerrilla Tactics is the best overall talent in this row for both m+, raid, and even PVP. This talent makes your rotation a lot less clunky due to it letting you slightly hold bombs. This talent also synergizes well with your Wildfire Infusion talent and the Flame Infusion conduit.

Butchery changes your Carve into a harder-hitting AoE spender, which still reduces the cooldown of your Wildfire Bomb. Unfortunately, this talent is under tuned and performs badly even with the Butcher's Bone Fragments legendary.

Hydra's Bite increases your Serpent Sting damage by 20%, and Serpent Sting now fires 2 additional Serpent Sting on 2 nearby targets. Unfortunately, this talent is under-tuned and performs badly even with Viper's Venom talent.

Raiding: Guerrilla Tactics

Mythic+:Guerrilla Tactics

Tier 3 (30)

Survival Hunter Trailblazer TalentTrailblazerPassive
Survival Hunter Natural Mending TalentNatural MendingPassive
Survival Hunter Camouflage TalentCamouflageInstant

Trailblazer gives you a buff that increases your movement speed by 30% if you didn't attack in the last 3 seconds. This talent is generally pretty niche and only sees play on bosses with intermissions where the boss is untargetable, and there's nothing to hit for extended periods of time.

Natural Mending reduces your Exhilaration cooldown by 1 second for every 20 focus you spend. This is your go-to raiding talent, and it can also be used in m+ if you don't plan on going for any skips.

Camouflage give you a stealth for 1 minute while healing you for 2% of your max health every second. This can only be used while out of combat, so it has little to no use in raids, but it is your go-to m+ talent for skips.

Raiding:Natural Mending / Trailblazer

Mythic+:Camouflage / Natural Mending

Tier 4 (35)

Survival Hunter Bloodseeker TalentBloodseekerPassive
Survival Hunter Steel Trap TalentSteel TrapInstant
Survival Hunter A Murder of Crows TalentA Murder of CrowsInstant

Bloodseeker passively makes your Kill Command apply a bleed to targets hit and increases your auto attack speed by 10% for every bleeding enemy around you. It is worth noting that the passive attack speed can be any bleed, including Wildfire InfusionsInternal Bleeding or even bleeds from other specs such as Guardian druids Thrash or rogues Garrote.

This is the best talent in this row unless you're playing the trapping build.

Steel Trap hurls a damaging trap which roots and bleeds enemies hit by it. This talent should only be used with the Nesingwary's Trapping Apparatus legendary for an additional rotational trap.

A Murder of Crows summons a flock of crows to your target, which damages your target over 15 seconds. If your target dies while affected by A Murder of Crows, the cooldown is reset.

Unfortunately, this talent is very under-tuned, so it is never worth playing.

Raiding:Steel Trap / Bloodseeker

Mythic+:Bloodseeker

Tier 5 (40)

Survival Hunter Born To Be Wild TalentBorn To Be WildPassive
Survival Hunter Posthaste TalentPosthastePassive
Survival Hunter Binding Shot TalentBinding ShotInstant

Born To Be Wild is a niche talent that reduces the cooldown of your Aspect of the Turtle, Aspect of the Cheetah, and Aspect of the Eagle by 20%, which let them sometimes line up with raid mechanics better.

Posthaste makes Disengage free you from all slows and roots and increases your movement speed by 50% after casting it. This talent massively increases your mobility and is, therefore, your best raiding talent in this row.

Binding Shot fires down an arrow that roots all targets trying to escape the 5-yard zone for 8 seconds. While Binding Shot has some niche uses in raids, this talent really shines in m+ and is, therefore, a must-have for it.

Raiding: Posthaste

Mythic+: Binding Shot

Tier 6 (45)

Survival Hunter Tip of the Spear TalentTip of the SpearPassive
Survival Hunter Mongoose Bite TalentMongoose BiteInstant
Survival Hunter Flanking Strike TalentFlanking StrikeInstant

Tip of the Spear increases Raptor Strikes damage by 20% for each Kill Command cast, stacking up to 3 times. This is your best talent for a mix of single target and AoE.

Mongoose Bite changes your Raptor Strike into Mongoose Bite. Casting Mongoose Bite grants you Mongoose Fury, a 14-second stacking buff that increases the dmg of consecutive Mongoose Bites by 15% up to 5 times.

Additional stacks don't increase the duration of this buff.

This talent is the highest performing single target option for this row, and it really shines in the  Nesingwary's Trapping Apparatus build.

Flanking Strike is a hard-hitting ability that also regenerates 30 focus for you and your pet. This is your best talent for only AoE situations but generally lacks in single target compared to the other options.

Raiding:Mongoose Bite / Tip of the Spear

Mythic+:Tip of the Spear  / Flanking Strike

Tier 7 (50)

Survival Hunter Birds of Prey TalentBirds of PreyPassive
Survival Hunter Wildfire Infusion TalentWildfire InfusionPassive
Survival Hunter Chakrams TalentChakramsInstant

Birds of Prey increase the duration of  Coordinated Assault by 1.5 for each  Raptor Strike, Mongoose Bite, Carve, or Butchery cast on the same target that your pet is attacking.

This is your best pure single target option in this row and is especially strong with the Nesingwary's Trapping Apparatus build.

Wildfire Infusion changes your Wildfire Bomb into Pheromone Bomb, Shrapnel Bomb, and Volatile Bomb randomly cycling through all 3 of them.

If a target is affected by Pheromone BombKill Command will always reset its cooldown.

Targets affected by Shrapnel Bomb and are hit by Raptor Strike, Mongoose Bite, Carve, or Butchery are affected by a bleed which stacks up to 3 times.

And Volatile Bomb refreshes the duration of Serpent Sting, and for every target affected by Serpent Sting, Volatile Bomb will additionally explode, dealing aoe damage an additional time.

This talent is great for AoE since all 3 bombs count as different spells. This lets you stack multiple dots on targets which aren't possible without this talent and is, therefore, your go-to m+ talent.

Chakrams hits all targets in a line between you and your target.

Raiding:Birds of Prey / Wildfire Infusion
