Best WoW Hunter Pets

How do I choose the best pet for me?

While making a choice of the pet you will be using you have to consider which type of content you will be running and with what spec. World of Warcraft is split into two major types PvE and PvP. When you have decided on type of content you will pursuit than you can start with choosing your spec, gear and pet.

PVP Content

PvP content is basically split into Arena, Battlegrounds and world PvP. Hunter has a great deal of abilities which make him a very interesting and good class for PvP . PvP is all about controlling the situation and hunter can do that with a proper spec and pet, but keep in mind that your play style will also depend on spec that you will choose. You will be able to produce large amounts of damage to your foes as long as you can keep the range from them but once they get in melee range tables can turn.

Make sure that your target is always at the desired distance and use your abilities to accomplish that. Disengage, traps and various shoots can make this happen but sometimes that is just not enough. Best spec for PvP at this point is Survival with Marksmanship on the close second place; beast mastery on the other hand isn’t really that good. Question that you need to ask is which pet will help me be in control? Most hunters go with spiders and crabs, and that is for a good reason. Every hunter needs to know how to properly kite his targets otherwise he won’t be able to defeat his enemy.

Spider pets for PvP

Spiders are very good in PvP probably even the best and immobilize effect from their web ability with cunning talent tree is the reason why most hunters use them. Your own abilities and web ability with 40 second cool down should be more than enough to give you control over your enemies’ movement. The fact that web attack cannot be dispelled makes it even better. The weak side of spiders is that they don’t have the survivability of tenacity pets or damage of ferocity. They are easy to feed as they eat meat.

Crab pets for PvP

Crabs are also very popular for PvP for their pin effect which makes targets immobilized but the down part is that the effect is dispellable. Good thing is that Crabs are Tenacity pets and thus have high survivability.

PVE Content

Raiding is most popular and fun aspect of PvE content. Hunter is a pure dps class and doing maximum DPS in raids is their job. Beast mastery DPS is too weak when it comes to raiding and both Marksmanship and Survival are hand in hand superior to it. Best pets for PvE hunter are ferocity pets as their talents are all about dealing damage or enhancing it.

Deciding on which pet is best for PvE content is easy and it is definitely wolf because he is superior to other ferocity pets. Wolf’s Furious howl gives you 320 attack power with 50% uptime and it is a very nice boost to your dps. Talents of ferocity tree are built around increasing your pet’s survivability and damage of both you and your pet’s damage done.
