Ever since World of Warcraft came out, Hunter has been the most popular class in the game. And besides Shaman, Hunter is the only other class that can transmog mail sets. And this gives them a serious advantage for looking unique and unrepeatable.
On top of that, Hunters have very different aesthetics than any other class in WoW. They’re natural survivors and rulers of the wilds places, so their gear often matches those ideas. You can often spot thorns, bones, and leaves on a Hunter’s armor, but it’s nothing like a Druid set, for example. While Druids seek to become one with nature, Hunters seek to survive and thrive in it.
Another thing that’s key to this class is the ability to have a pet. And we aren’t talking about demons that a Warlock might command, but a cute bear, cat, bird, or something similar. So the Hunter transmog sets often have animalistic features and resemble ferocity in every sense of the word.
And the last equation to consider when choosing a Hunter transmog is the weapon. Hunters are also the only class in World of Warcraft that can use a gun, bow, or crossbow to fight. And matching it with the gear set is essential. Here we’ve chosen the 15 best Hunter transmog sets in the game and they vary in design, themes, features, and coloring. So you can choose the one that fits your character the most.
Let’s check them out!
Top 15 Best Hunter Transmog Sets
15. Relentless Gladiator’s Chain Armor
- Collected by: purchasing the armor set from the Wrathful Gladiator vendor in Dalaran, Wrath of the Lich King.
And we begin with the Relentless Gladiator’s Chain Armor. Anyone who played this class during the Wrath of The Lich King expansion remembers the golden days of being a Hunter in WoW. The unmatched damage, the ability to kite, the powerful pets… everything was great!
Well, the Relentless Gladiator set gave Hunters a new look, one that became an example of how transmog sets should be crafted in WoW. It’s sleek and well-designed, covering the character with nice forest armor. The Relentless set is an outfit made for a wood ranger, something that Hunters are closely related to.
And that’s why it’s on the list for the best Hunter transmog sets!
14. Malevolent Gladiator’s Chain Armor
- Collected by: purchasing the armor set from the Malevolent Gladiator vendor in Mists of Pandaria.
Next, we have the Malevolent Gladiator’s Chain Armor. Mists of Pandaria’s aesthetic theme was largely imperial and we got to see a bunch of emperors during the expansion. So it’s no wonder why the military suits look exactly like this Hunter set – simple yet powerful!
This samurai-like set is an awesome addition to your transmog collection simply because it’s unique. This kind of design is inspired by the real-life Asian culture and Blizzard never repeated it again in their fantasy world. It’s understandable, but at the same time, it’s way too cool of an appearance! So we recommend you get it!
13. Battlegear of the Unblinking Vigil
- Collected by: looting the gear pieces from the Siege of Orgrimmar raid on Mythic difficulty.
With the Siege of Orgrimmar raid, Blizzard gave Hunters a very particular armor set – Battlegear of the Unblinking Vigil. At that time, this was the most singular look for a Hunter, simply because all other transmog sets for this class were “foresty” or animalistic.
Battlegear of the Unblinking Vigil is made out of war mail and is adorned with shining gold. Each of the two shoulder pads has a different design and the helm covers the entire head. The rest of the set perfectly matches those pieces, so it’s a great outfit to own!
12. Selfless Kyrian Mail Armor
- Collected by: completing the Kyrian story campaign in World of Warcraft: Shadowlands.
With the release of Shadowlands, all classes received a couple of new armor sets depending on the covenant they’ve chosen. Hunters that allied themselves with the Kyrian covenants became proud owners of the Selfless Kyrian Mail Armor, a very distinguishing transmog for the class.
Instead of the usual elements, the Selfless set transforms Hunter into a Paladin. The angelic shoulder pads and the winged helmet appear incredibly in-game. But we also love how the gold covers the different parts of the character’s body. All in all, it’s a very interesting set to own in WoW!
11. Wyrmstalker Battlegear
- Collected by: looting the gear pieces from the Dragon Soul raid on Heroic difficulty.
If there is one unifying element of the different Hunter transmog sets in World of Warcraft, then that would display of dead animals’ parts. One such example is the Wyrmstalker Battlegear, the official gear set that Hunters wore in the Dragon Soul raid. Of course, we chased a mad dragon in that instance, so it’s quite fitting for the Hunter set to have skulls of wyrms and dragons on it!
The Heroic version of this set is by far the best one and the coloring is fantastic. You get to see the unholy energies flowing behind the various different armor pieces and the different skulls. The Dragon Soul can be a tricky raid to solo, so here is a guide that can help you out!
10. Wildstalker Armor
- Collected by: looting the gear pieces from the Tomb of Sargeras raid on Mythic difficulty.
Wildstalker Armor is a very popular transmog for Hunters. It comes from the Tomb of Sargeras raid from the Legion expansion and it can be farmed solo. Besides the animalistic features, it also displays a broken arrow on one of its shoulder pieces. The helm hides most of the character’s face, but it also has a demonic eye on top of it.
Keep in mind that all versions of this set are great, but the Mythic one is the most special of all. Both the coloring and design are fantastic and they blend together in a nice outfit.
9. Rylakstalker’s Battlegear
- Collected by: looting the gear pieces from the Blackrock Foundry raid on Mythic difficulty.
Traditionally, Blizzard has always had a different approach to creating Hunter transmog sets. The reason for his is because Hunters don’t really share anything similar with any other class. And since they’re one-of-a-kind, Blizzard is often forced to create sets such as the Rylakstalker’s Battlegear.
When this outfit first came out, it was like nothing we’ve seen before! Skulls, bones, metal, blood – all these different styles are put together in an incredible manner. True, Blackrock Foundry gave most classes good transnmog sets, but Hunters take the cake here!
8. Gronnstalker’s Battlegear
- Collected by: looting the gear pieces from the Sunwell Plateau raid.
If you say that Blizzard often experiments with the Hunter transmog sets, you wouldn’t far off the actual truth. One such example would be the Gronnstalker’s Battlegear – the official tier set of the Sunwell Plateau raid.
During the Burning Crusade expansion, we had to deal with a lot of demons and blood elves. Well, the Gronnstalker’s Batltegear looks exactly like the mix of both. You have fire/fel orbs on the shoulders and gold all over the general design. What more can we ask for?
7. Lighting-Charged Battlegear
- Collected by: looting the gear pieces from the Bastion of Twilight raid on Heroic difficulty.
Hunter is also the class with the highest number of naga-inspired transmog sets in World of Warcraft. The Lightning-Charged Battlegear gear is the first of those sets and the most original one!
The aquatic elements are all over the place here. First of all, there are fish scales hanging from both shoulder pieces and along the leggings. The helmet is an actual skull of a large fish that extends behind like a tail. The set is available in two color variants – purple, like the one you see here, and green, which is the Normal version of the set. The Bastion of Twilight is an easy raid to solo, so give it a shot!
6. Dragonstalker Armor
- Collected by: looting the gear pieces from the Blackwing Lair raid.
If there is one class that’s traditionally considered as the slayer of Dragons in WoW, then that is Hunter! Dragon skulls are a reoccurring theme in the Hunter transmog sets, but the most notable ones can be seen in the Dragonstalker Armor.
Th Dragonstalker Armor is an old vanilla set that players could get from the Blackwing Lair raid. It’s made out of purple mail with two dragon heads towering on the shoulder pads. There is a third dragon skull on the helmet which stares at the Hunter’s enemy with two evil red eyes. All in all, it’s one of the best outfits to have in WoW!
5. Runewarden’s Guise
- Collected by: completing the Night Fae story campaign in World of Warcraft: Shadowlands.
Just like the Selfless Kyrian set, the Runewarden’s Guise is the outfit that Hunters could get after joining the Night Fae covenant. Statistically, there are more Night Fae Hunters than Kyrian ones, so the outfit is more common around Shadowlands.
There are three more versions of this set, each with a different defining color. There is a green one, an orange one, and a blue one – so you can choose the one you want the most! Keep in mind that each variant has requires different things for obtaining it, so it’s not as easy completing a couple of quests. But if you want to look like a defender of the Ardenweald forest, then it’s totally worth it!
4. Flamewalker’s Battlegear
- Collected by: looting the gear pieces from the Firelands raid on Heroic difficulty.
The Flamewalker’s Battlegear is another unique transmog set for Hunter. This is the only outfit covered in fire that Hunters can wear and it comes from the Firelands raid. We must say that the bones and horns look particularly scary in red, so this set is a must if you’re a Hunter main.
We heavily recommend you to farm this raid because you also have the chance to collect item appearances of the Shaman set from this raid. They’re similar in thematics and colors, so you can create a one-of-a-kind look by combining those pieces! It’s up to your creativity!
3. Eagletalon Battlegear
- Collected by: looting the gear pieces from the Nighthold and Emerald Nightmare raid on Mythic difficulty.
If you’re a Horde player and you’d like a mix of blood elf and undead aesthetics for your Hunter, here you have the Eagletalon Battlegear. Purple and silver are the colors of the Forsaken. And the head converts the player’s eyes into two red dots akin to those of Sylvannas Windrunner. The whole design is sleek and appears incredible inside the game!
This set comes from two raids – Emerald Nightmare and The Nighthold. In Shadowlands, you can take any of your Hunter characters and solo these instances. You don’t need any help, so you can start farming it right away!
2. Serpentstalker Guise
- Collected by: looting the gear pieces from the Antorus, the Burning Throne raid on Mythic difficulty.
The Naga weren’t the biggest supporters of the Burning Legion lore-wise, so it was quite a surprise that the last raid of that expansion gave us a Naga set for Hunters. But despite the general confusion, anyone who got the set was more than impressed. All the little details were put together in a
The best part about this set is definitely the headpiece. It’s an actual naga head cut from a dead body and worn by the Hunter himself. The tentacles flow down the torso and the eyes grow in turquoise colors. The outfit goes best with a serpent or a similar pet, but the choice of companion is up to you!
1. Rift Stalker Armor
- Collected by: looting the gear pieces from the Serpentshrine Cavern raid.
And the absolute best transmog set for Hunter is Rift Stalker Armor! During Burning Crusade, Hunters were the most broken class in World of Warcraft. They dominated the PvE and the PvP, with their pets doing absurd amounts of damage (more than some classes).
Well, the Serpentshrine Cavern gave Hunters the outfit to match their power. Rift Stalker Armor is the greatest design that we have seen for this class, not because it’s new and unique, but because it’s so well put together. The skulls and the bones here are in perfect proportion with the rest of the set, and the deep blue color goes ideally with the white/yellow one.
Nowadays you can solo this raid and farm the Rift Stalker Armor by yourself!
Those are the top 15 best transmog sets for Hunter in WoW Shadowlands!
