After taming The Razza and letting him spread his wings in a few BGs, I was off to Tanaris to gather my next PvP pet experiment. My target… Harakiss the Infestor.
I decided to go after Harakiss the Infestor because he’s rare and unusual looking. Harakiss shares the blue ‘brain bug’ model with only one other tamable Silithid in the game – Princess Yauj in Ahn’Qiraj.
In part two of my Beast Mastery PvP guide, I’m going to discuss BM PvP pets and ways to spec them. Here we go…
Beast Mastery PvP Pets
Part of the benefit to investing 51 points into the Beast Mastery tree is the ability to tame exotic pets. Although currently they’re so-so for PvE, the PvP benefits of an exotic pet are fantastic in my opinion.
First off, Beast Mastery grants us access to arguably the most overpowered pet of them all, the Chimaera.
Chimaeras are great for a variety of reasons. First off, they have what I consider to be the best all-around special of any pet. This is of course, Froststorm Breath.
30 yard range.
applies a 50% movement speed decrease for 5 seconds.
is on a 7 second cooldown (with 3/3 Longevity), which can conceivably allow for over 70% uptime on the movement speed debuff.
cannot be dispelled.
does non-armor mitigated nature damage.
Froststorm Breath owns. Period. It is a great spell for both offensive and defensive purposes. It not only makes kiting melee easier, but it’s also a great tool to slow down casters, making it harder for them to LoS you.
Next, Chimaeras are part of the Cunning family of pets. Cunning pets have a variety of tools available to them that are very useful for PvP.
