The Key to a good Survival build

Plain and simple...... Gear!!!!!!!! If you don't have the right gear you can't do justice to the spec. In my experience it is not all about stacking agility but finding a balance between RAP, hit rating and agility. True that agility gives you ap, crit chance, dodge rating and armor if you ignore the other two your dps will suffer greatly. But back to gear. Don't get discouraged if you cant find the right sets out there. One of the challenges at being a survival hunter is finding the right pieces to compliment your spec. When i first started experimenting i found that a lot of leather pieces where perfect for the build. Yes it is hard to compete with rogues for loot and it doesn't have any intellect on it since that is not needed for melee dps there are ways around it in the use of potions and such. But in all honesty if you are missing the gear to be a t the top of the damage meters the spec is still great as a utility build since you have faster improved traps and the abilty to reset all cooldowns with the ability resourcefulness. And expose weakness is a wonderful buff for any melee or other hunters since it can provide more attack power than Trueshot Aura.
