WoW Hunters rely on their pets in all aspects of the game, and being a pure ranged dps class, different pets for them can make a lot of difference. It is important to make a wise choice when deciding on a pet. Hunters pets can be divided into groups based on their abilities: Tenacity, Cunning and Ferocity.

Cunning pets

Cunning pets are perfect for PvP encounters as their talents will provide utility, mobility and flexibility. This group mainly consists of spiders, bats, birds of prey, sillithids, chimeras, ravagers etc. Each of them have very different special skills, i.e. spiders will immobilize targets, bats are able to stun.

PvP hunters often use spiders due to their immobilizing effect, as getting range on your target is very important. Talents used in the Cunning tree will provide more stamina, speed, survivability to your pet and some very fine abilities that can often save your life in PvP like roar of sacrifice which will transfer 30% of the damage from yourself to your pet.

Web – this is the spider ability that will root your target for up to four seconds.

Sonic screech – is the bats ability that can stun a player for up to 2 seconds.


These types of pets are focused on dealing more damage and boosting your own damage as well. They are mostly used in PvE aspect of the game like raids and dungeons, but sometimes are also used in PvP to give a nice niche to your group set up. Ferocity type pets are: Wolves, Core Hounds, Moths, cats, raptors and others. Special abilities of ferocity pets do increased damage to the target or in some cases boost your own dps.

Some hunters tend to use Core Hounds for PvP as their debuff from lava breath will decrease the casting speed of the victim for 25%. Lava breath can really be very useful in PvP when you combine burst damage with that debuff on enemy healer. Wolf’s special ability called Furious howl will boost your dps by 320 attack power for 20 seconds with 40 second cool down. Talents of Ferocity tree will either increase your pets survivability or boost your dps.
