Beast Master Stats, Enchants, and Consumables (Icey Veins Summary

Helping a guild member gear up, as I come across the different needs for different characters, I will post a short summary here. However, I highly recommend that you sim your character. I was slow in doing this, but once I did, I learned a lot! I will add another post with how to use it.

Beast Master Hunter General Stat Priority:  

  1. Haste;
  2. Critical Strike/Versatility

"In a practical situation, your stat weights and priority will always be changing as you get more gear, trinkets and so on. This is a general stat priority that gives you an idea of what stats are good to have on your gear."
