The selected talents are simply our general recommendation, your play style and group needs should be a priority when choosing your build. The talent descriptions include some additional advice on when different talents are the most appropriate choice.
- 15PosthasteNarrow EscapeCrouching Tiger, Hidden Chimera
Posthaste provides an escape mechanism and burst movement speed, but provides less overall utility than other talents in this tier.
Narrow Escape offers an additional root effect that is extremely valuable, both offensively and defensively, and provides more overall value than the competing talents.
- 30Binding ShotWyvern StingIntimidation
Binding Shot offers some utility in group PvP encounters where it is paramount to control the movement of entire groups. But the overall utility of Binding Shot is less than that of Wyvern Sting.
Wyvern Sting provides a ranged crowd control ability on a fairly short cooldown. This is exceptionally useful in almost every encounter.
Intimidation is the weakest talent choice of the tier. Wyvern Sting is a better choice all around with a lower cooldown and longer crowd control duration.
- 45ExhilarationAspect of the Iron HawkSpirit Bond
Exhilaration can help heal you through some burst damage, but is generally the weakest talent of the tier, due to its relatively long cooldown and infrequent use.
Iron Hawk offers flat damage reduction that is always valuable and available.
Spirit Bond is an acceptable choice, but is no longer available when your pet dies. Iron Hawk provides a similar amount of damage reduction but is not dependent on your pet.
- 60Steady FocusDire BeastThrill of the Hunt
Steady Focus provides potent Focus regeneration, but can be difficult to reliably activate in hectic PvP combat.
Dire Beast is not very useful in PvP because you only gain Focus when the beasts attack a target. This is not always possible and there is too much potential to not benefit form the additional Focus.
- 75A Murder of CrowsBlink StrikesStampede
A Murder of Crows provides a strong damage cooldown. It is your best choice for this tier when the ability to deal burst damage is critical.
Blink Strikes provides good overall damage and should be used when the burst damage from A Murder of Crows is not needed. Blink Strikes is also helpful for providing another ranged ability for use against healers and casters.
- 90Glaive TossPowershotBarrage
Glaive Toss is the top choice of this tier and is useful in practically every PvP situation. It deals instant damage with a minimal Focus cast while slowing your opponents.
Powershot is difficult to use in combat and has a long cast time that can make it risky to use.
Barrage does not offer any additional utility in PvP combat when compared to Glaive Toss or Powershot. This talent should be avoided in PvP situations.
- 100Exotic MunitionsFocusing ShotAdaptation
Exotic Munitions provides different buffs that you can apply to your ranged weapon to deal additional damage and/or to slow your opponents.
Focusing Shot offers additional Focus generation, but on an ability with a long cast-time.
Adaptation increases the damage of your pet and provides them with additional abilities.
Major Glyphs are all highly situational. Your Glyph choices will largely depend on your team and class composition.
