Survival Hunter pre raid bis

Recommended Posts

kuntar    0

For anyone that wants to be survival speced here is a pre raid list to aim for so that you are viable. I will give the slot,. its name and what dungeon and boss it comes from. i will also add what gems to socket with.

The focus of survival spec is agi stacking. There's a  talent called expose weakness, which gives all physical dps a attack power bonus on the de-buffed mob thats based off your agi, so the higher your agi the higher the bonus. In all sockets your going to aim for the 8 agi gems unless your server has the epic 10 agi gems. and the meta you use is the relentless earthstorm diamond which is 12 agi and 3% crit dmg increase. To make this meta work it requires 2 red/blue/yellow gems. you should therefor use 2 green gems that act as both yellow and blue. The gem you use is called jagged talasite, 4 crit 6 stam, or if your server has the epic cuts its jagged seaspray 5 crit 7 stam. there is also a epic cut u can get from heroics that is 5 crit 6 stam. This gem is found in Blood Furnace in heroic mode.

I will be posting a t4, t5, t6 and sunwell bis list in the future.

Helm: Beast Lord Helm (mechenar,. pathaleon) Meta:Relentless Earthstorm, Red Socket: Pure agi gem

I just want to bring up one little thing, that Survi is inferior to BM until later tier 5, since then we finally get enough agility to surpass BM's base damage boost.

It all depends on how many melee you have in your raid but i'd say that 800 agi is a minimum to give raid a significant boost and overcome dmg loss compared to BM hunter (who actually gives 3% dmg buff so that's quite good as welll).

 

Btw, surv will never outdps  BM in personal dps.

I don't think the idea is to out-dps the bm hunter, but to be a support for heavy mele hitters - if you got some uber-war & rogues, it might do a lot better to roll as surv & not BM, in other to increase the overall group dps, rather than your own personal
