Hunter Level 85 PVE Builds

Posted on: Dec 06, 2010 | Author: Shambels


Level 85 Hunter Builds

With the release of Cataclysm we are provided with 5 more talent points to spend within our talent trees. Below are outlined the current recommended level 85 raiding and levelling hunter builds devised by Frostheim from Hunters Union. You will notice that with the shortened talent trees in Cataclysm, Blizzard has given us less choice and flexibility with our builds and as a result there are really not that many options to choose from, making most of our choices obvious.

Please note that as with everything in this early stage of the expansion all builds are still subject to minor change.

 

Marksmanship Level 85 Raiding Build – 8/31/2

Level 85 Marksman Raiding Build

Arguably the highest dps build at the cost of the most challenging rotation.  It is recommended that if you struggle to master this rotation, then spec Survival as the easier Survival rotation will output more dps then a poorly executed MM rotation. Once we get to the bottom of the MM tree we see most benefit to our raiding build coming from the BM tree. Frenzy boosts our pet attack speed by 30% providing a nice contribution to our dps. We grab the somewhat lackluster talents One with Nature and Bestial Discipline to get down to Frenzy. 1 point is put into Resistance is Futile as the best dps filler option to keep going down the MM tree. Marked for Death although a purely situational talent is very handy in maintaining your Hunter’s Mark when target switching. While haste is proving to not be a great stat for MM hunters, Pathing seems to be the best option for your last two points, with possibly Bombardment being its only contender.

 

Survival Level 85 Raiding Build – 1/9/31

Survival Hunters are looking very promising at level 85. Once we get to the bottom of the SV tree we see most benefit to our raiding build coming from the MM tree. Sic’EM looks to be a very desirable talent, as does Careful Aim with it’s 60% crit increase to Cobra Shot (which we will be using a fair bit). There is a degree of flexibitity with some of our Survival talents and that will come down to personal preference. For example some players may prefer grabbing Survival Tactics for the Disengage cooldown reduction instead of two points in Hunter vs Wild. Similarly some players may grab two points in Serpent Spread for the added effect on trash, removing the point out of Bestial Discipline which is a better single target choice.

 

Beast Mastery Level 85 Raiding Build – 31/9/1

Beast Mastery Hunters remain as the pet spec focusing on Kill Command as its signature attack. Once we get to the bottom of the BM tree we see most benefit to our raiding build coming from the MM tree. In fact it’s the same MM talents taken in the SV build. It is still unknown how BM hunter’s will match up with the other builds, but hopefully Beast Mastery will prove to be a solid build at level 85.

 

Marksmanship Leveling Build – 7/31/3

Level 85 Marksman Leveling Build

 

In Cataclysm we see a new leveling build rise. Historically Beast Mastery has been the leveling spec of choice due to its pet enhancing talents. With Cataclysm and its smaller talent trees the pet difference is no longer as great. Furthermore with glyphs such as Glyph of Misdirection we do not have to worry about our pet’s ability to hold aggro anymore. The main advantages of the above MM leveling build over other builds is that you can pretty much DPS non stop, without having to worry about your focus, due to the instant focus regen provided by Rapid Recuperation. This build also provides the best survivability through Chimera Shot which is the largest self heal available to hunters, and the passive Spirit Bond talent.

Rotation for this build is very simple. You use -
Misdirection on your pet –>Chimera Shot or Arcane Shot –> dead.
Initially when you start leveling from 80 to 85 mobs will go down very fast (one-two shots) so there is probably no point in even using Misdirection until you get to the higher level mobs.
