Hunter Talents

All of that aside though you are going to, without a doubt, want to invest points into Improved Aspect of the Hawk (Beastmastery) and Improved Hunters Mark (Marksmanship). These are the staple of your most important weapons (rifle/bow) and you’re going to want to get these sooner or later. I personally focus on Beastmastery early on in order to get Bestial Swiftness as soon as possible. Only because this is probably the most important ability your pet will need when it comes to PvP. If you plan on PvP’ing that is. I would recommend maxing out Improved Aspect of the Hawk, then Bestial Discipline and then get Bestial Swiftness. You’re going to want more focus for your pet so he can keep growling to keep aggro and you’re going to want to have a higher power ranking for your rifle and this path get’s that for you quickly. Afterwards I would work on Efficiency (Marksmanship) and then get to work on your Improved Hunters Mark so that you can get the highest power output for your rifle/bow.
