    Default Hunter Pets for 5 boxing

    Hi everyone

    Started a hunter team but I was wondering what are the best pets to have for mythic plus push?

    I assume spirit beast? are any kind okay?

    Any tips would be awesome

    if you are going BM, and you probably should, there's only one choice: "Clefthooves".


    with the +50% talent they get 15% leech, you should be able to get that to 16% - 18% easily. the clefthooves get leech of bestial cleave, and the get bonused heals, which means they heal 60k - 70k per cleave on 5 mob situations, its pretty op.

    some pulls on m+ will get easier the more mobs you pull into the Cleave meat grinder.

    if you also pick the first row talent that gives you 2 pets, mend pet will get cast on both. and leech will heal you 2x, if you also race change to Magthar Orc the pet gets +10% hp and since Mend is % based you will get about 4k+ hp back every 2 secs on top of what you get with the leech on normal attacks and whatever you get back with your defensive traits. more than enough to offset most damage. still, some boss fights are still pretty tricky, i will probably try BM once tier2 comes around, maybe t3. if the expansion will last that long...

    the heal from mend pet, if you remember to keep it rolling all the time, will heal more than spirit heal. and when clearing trash the heal from cleave plus the auto wall they cast when low HP, will make clearing pretty easy. with spirit pets MAYBE some bosses might get doable, but the clefthooves make some dungeons like freehold and motherlode so easy that you just don't bother trying to do the ones that need spirit pets. (serpent temple, underot, etc)


    MM only gets one strong alpha strike every minute with double tap... it amounts to nothing. BM is the way to go.

    The 2 pet talent is so bad, pet ai is bugged to hell and back.. you lose so much dps from it.. better go with the KC one.

    Second on the Clefthooves, if you have a real tank and the hunters are just there for dps the spirit pet is better for the utility.

    Guys I am having a massive issue tanking, i have the clefthooves out and i am mending them nonestop with MD being sent to all of them but they are being 2 shot,

    does my gear determine the pets ability to tank?

    I have just hit 120 and have a little gear but the pets are just getting owned on heroic....

    any suggestions?

    Get good geared...

    Do some research into ivl bfa scaling...

    Use mend pet on cd...

    Use, if possible, spirit pet heal on roundrobin, on your main tanking pet. Alternativly, you want to create a seperate keybind for each character, so that they can use their spirit heal on whatever is the fokus your main character has. You also want to track the cd of these heals. Personally i use the addon named "tell me when" to track spells/cooldowns, but there are newer ones out there, but i havent tried those (weak auras, etc). Takes a long time to learn.

    CC if possible.

    5 x barrage = does wonders on trashpacks.

    Do research on the various trashmobs... interrupt / cc on priority.

    The bosses in dungeons will one or two shot your pet fairly easily. But with 5 pets if one dies you can rez it easily while another pet dies, and so on. Even if the boss kills a pet every GCD you will still have at least two up at all times.

    Better gear keeps your pets alive longer, letting you do higher keys, killing your pet quicker. Its a cycle.

    Awesome thank you for this,

    So i have got the CC down pat, trash mobs give me no issue but the the bosses just eat through my pets,

    It might be due to the fact that I am trying to do heroics in 300iLevel gear which i know isnt suppose to be the case

    I am gonna concentrate on doing normal modes since my pets dont even come close to dying get everyone up to 345 roughly and then move into raid finder,

    The pets scale with Ilvl, I just did a +6 last night as Resto Shammy/4x Hunter and completed it in a +2, was decently close to +3.
    A neat trick I have as part of my spam is round robin Growl/taunt rotation, it's on a 8 second cooldown, so you could have it cycle every 1.6 seconds. That way each pet has time to actually heal in the process.
    I experience the opposite issue where some trash demolishes the pets but the bosses don't do much of anything. Which is mostly due to having 6-8 mobs aoeing down.
    My ilvl is 370-382ish right now on this team, so I still have quite a bit ways to work up.
    Having a Shaman spamming chain heal (which bounces to pets as well) really helps keep them topped off.
    So if you get frustrated with no heals, remember there is the option of adding a healer to the mix and being just as effective! Also wears mail so gear sharing is easy.

    To boost your ilvl up, do whichever warfront is up, the arathi one gives out ilvl 340 for completion every time and the first time also gives a 370, and the darkshore is 355 and gives a 400 item on the first time of the cycle. Then do emissaries if they give a rewards, and world quests should be boosting it up quite a bit. They will end up scaling all the way to 385 for the emissary reward.

    My Hunters are level 118 atm.. x2 of them have Dreamrunners, and x1 a Clefthoof.

    Dreamrunners have 42,576 hp and heal for 3010 per tick

    Clefthoof has 34,272 hp and mend pet heals for 2879 per tick.

    Also leech is meant to heal the Hunter based on healing/damage but mend pet doesn't return leech to Hunter as far as I can see in my meters.
