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.
For Survival in particular, it is worth noting that when a simulation has a lot of one stat to start with, statsticks with that stat on it will be devalued somewhat. We recommend simming statstick trinkets for yourself to decide between them.
3. 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.
3.1. Survival Legendaries
Unseen Predator's Cloak is a new Legendary cloak. It causes you to have 10% increased critical strike chance against enemies that are affected by Explosive Trap, emphasizing the importance of using this on cooldown. It is moderately powerful.
Soul of the Huntmaster is a new Legendary ring that gives you the Serpent Sting talent without having to choose it, letting you choose another Level 90 talent to use at the same time. On AoE-based fights, this ring can be desirable as it allows you to use Butchery for the burst AoE, which will then spread Serpent Sting to everything it hits. For single-target, it is fairly weak.
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. On top of being a very powerful DPS Legendary, it also brings a good survivability and mobility boost in reducing the cooldown of Aspect of the Turtle and Aspect of the Cheetah.
Helbrine, Rope of the Mist Marauder is a Legendary belt that causes your Harpoon ability to increase your damage done by up to 30% for 10 seconds after using it on a target. The damage bonus increases the further away you were from the target when you pressed your Harpoon ability. This is an especially powerful opening burst legendary, and it can help when dealing with lots of adds in a large room. It goes without saying that you should attempt to use Harpoon from as far away as possible when using this Legendary.
Nesingwary's Trapping Treads are a pair of Legendary boots which causes your traps (and Caltrops) to give you 25 Focus whenever they are triggered. In a DPS context, this mostly applies to Explosive Trap and Caltrops // Steel Trap, but it can also be a DPS gain when using Tar Trap or Freezing Trap to deal with certain adds.
Frizzo's Fingertrap is a Legendary ring that causes your Carve ability to spread the Lacerate debuff to another, nearby target whenever you use it on a target that already has the Lacerate debuff. This is a very useful cleave Legendary, since the Lacerate ability does a lot of damage. Using it involves casting Carve to refresh Lacerate instead of the Lacerate ability itself, as well as Serpent Sting, even on a single target.
Butcher's Bone Apron is a new Survival legendary chest added in Patch 7.1.5. It causes Mongoose Bite to increase the damage of your next Carve or Butchery by 10%, stacking up to 10 times, meaning that consecutive Mongoose Bites can stack up significantly, leading to extremely big hits of Butchery in Mythic+ particularly. It is a useful Legendary for Mythic+, and situationally very useful for AoE fights in raids.
3.1.1. Survival Legendary Ranking
This list seeks to rank all the Legendaries in terms of desirability. This will be done in different tiers rather than a hard 1-2-3 list. Tier 1 contains BiS legendaries for most encounters, Tier 2 are all contenders for the second BiS slot depending on the situation, while Tier 3 Legendaries are generally undesirable.
- Tier 1 - Best in Slot
- Tier 2
- Tier 3
