Beast Mastery Trinket SimsRight-click the image and open in a new tab, or access the sheet directly with the link below to see it in full.

This trinket/legendary simulation spreadsheet is inherited from this spreadsheet, where you can also see the underlying data. Note that sometimes the spreadsheet on this link may be slightly broken as it is tinkered with by me. The screenshot above reflects the most recent, up-to-date version of the trinket sim.

Engine of Eradication has an effect that spawns 4 orbs around your character that you can pick up to extend the buff. The simulation above assumes that you flawlessly pick up these orbs every time, which may not be realistic in a raiding encounter where you have to move a lot. Therefore, take the results with a grain of salt and consider the fight you are doing when playing with this trinket — maybe something else is better because it does not rely on picking up these orbs.

4. Legion Legendaries

This is a comprehensive list of the non-spec specific legendaries that are available to Hunters in Legion. Legendaries can drop from daily loot chests, the Class Order Hall Mythic+ loot chest, the PvP loot chest, 5-man dungeons of all kinds, world bosses, and raid bosses from all difficulties. The spec-specific Legendaries will be listed under their respective class guide.

The Shadow Hunter's Voodoo Mask is a Legendary helmet which heals you for 20% of your maximum health whenever you use Feign Death, as well as an additional 5% of your health every second for 10 seconds for as long as you remain feigned. This can be an extremely useful self-heal when needed during raid encounters and Mythic+ encounters.

Prydaz, Xavaric's Magnum Opus is a Legendary necklace which gives you an absorb shield for 25% of your maximum health for 30 seconds, every 30 seconds. This makes it the strongest survivability legendary, especially since you will passively benefit from it. From a progression raiding standpoint where damage output is often not the primary concern, it is an incredibly strong legendary from a survivability standpoint, and it gives a lot of secondary stats which is a significant boost to DPS as well.

Roots of Shaladrassil are a pair of Legendary leggings that cause you to gain 3% health every second for as long as you stand still. The first heal occurs 1 second after you stop moving. This is the weakest survivability legendary, since the healing done does not add up to nearly as much damage prevented as Prydaz does, although the high item level of a high-budget item like legs makes it decent as far as non-DPS legendaries go.

Sephuz's Secret is a Legendary ring that gives you 70% increased movement speed and 15% Haste for 10 seconds whenever you apply a crowd control effect (stun, roots, silenced and so on) to non-boss enemies. It also increases movement speed by 10% and Haste by 2% passively. It can act as a damage and mobility boost on add-heavy encounters where you have to slow enemies, and it is a decent legendary for most Mythic+ dungeons.

Kil'jaeden's Burning Wish is a Legendary trinket that gives you a ton of stats passively, and has an on-use proc with a 1:15 minute cooldown that deals heavy, critical AoE damage around the target it hits. This is a powerful burst AoE legendary, and its heavy base stats makes it very powerful in general. Because it always crits, it has good synergy with Marksmanship's Trueshot cooldown, which increases critical strike damage by 50%, and it should be used together with Trueshot as often as possible.

4.1. Beast Mastery Legendaries

Parsel's Tongue is a new Legendary chest item in Patch 7.2.5. It increases your total damage done by 1% and Leech by 2% for 8 seconds every time you use Cobra Shot, stacking up to 4 times.

Soul of the Huntmaster is a new Legendary ring that gives Beast Mastery Hunters the Bestial Fury talent without having to choose it. This allows you to run with 2 talents in the same row. It is not particularly good, but if you get it, you should use One with the Pack in your talent UI, and let the ring activate Bestial Fury for you.

Call of the Wild are a pair of Legendary bracers which reduces the cooldown of all Aspects by 35%. This applies to Aspect of the Wild, Aspect of the Cheetah, Aspect of the Turtle, and Aspect of the Eagle for Survival Hunters as well.

The Mantle of Command is are a pair of Legendary shoulders for Beast Mastery Hunters. It increases the damage of all your pets by 5% for 8 seconds after using Dire Beast/Dire Frenzy.

Roar of the Seven Lions is a Legendary belt that causes Bestial Wrath to also reduce the Focus cost of all your abilities by 15%.

Qa'pla, Eredun War Order are a pair of Legendary boots that cause Dire Beast to reduce the remaining cooldown on Kill Command by 3 seconds.

The Apex Predator's Claw is a Legendary ring that causes your pet to gain the passive abilities of all the three pet talent specializations, Cunning, Ferocity, and Tenacity, and also deal 5% additional damage. Noteworthy abilities that a Ferocity pet will receive include Boar's Speed which increases your pet's movement speed by 30%, and Great Stamina which increases your pet's total health by 60%. If you get this Legendary, set your pet spec to Tenacity to gain the damage effect of the Charge ability.

4.1.1. Beast Mastery Legendary Ranking

Unlike most other specs, Beast Mastery has a lot of Legendaries that can be considered best in slot for your particular gear set, set bonuses and resulting talent choice. In general, Roar of the Seven Lions is nearly always best, but the second slot can be occupied by anything from Sephuz's Secret to Parsel's Tongue. The only truly undesirable Legendaries are the The Apex Predator's Claw, Kil'jaeden's Burning Wish and Vigilance Perch. To figure out your best combination of Legendaries, we strongly recommend simming yourself using the video tutorial found in the simulations section of this guide.
