Legendary powers significantly modify an aspect of your character's gameplay, but you must choose wisely as you can only equip one legendary at a time and each legendary requires Soul Ash to craft and upgrade.

Changes to Survival Hunters in 9.0.5
Not only are there very few changes to Survival, despite it struggling a lot in raid, the few changes that did come out of this patch are effectively meaningless.
damage increased by 15%.
This changes effectively nothing, as the damage is still undertuned, and the lack of damage in baseline abilities, makes it still dead in the water.
Ideal Crafting Order for Survival Hunter Legendaries
Assuming you're not looking for a specific Legendary for off-spec, we recommend the following crafting order:
at rank 1.
at rank 1
at rank 1
: Head, Shoulders
: Head, unless your shoulder is significantly weaker
Secondaries to use
: This is one of the strongest Legendaries in both pure single target and AoE. It is extremely versatile, and even can be a decent option for other specs if you need to switch. What it might not show on simulations in pure single target patchwerk or in raw AoE setting, it makes up for by being superb in both of them. This is especially useful since most AoE scenarios in raid are not sustained, but closer to waves, which favors Embers over some of the other AoE options.
: Waist, Feet
: Replace lowest ilevel.
Secondaries to use
: Somewhat more focused, this is the strongest Legendary for a raw single target BoP build. This generates an insane amount of focus which makes it ever so valuable for survival. This is still good in AoE settings, but it simply can't compete with AoE focused Legendaries.
: Waist, Legs
: Legs, unless your waist is significantly weaker
Secondaries to use
: On the opposite side, we have this AoE focused Legendary. It is one of the strongest if not the strongest AoE Legendary. I can see it acting as a somewhat simpler alternative to the other two Legendaries, since you do not have to mess around with using combat traps/flare and does not require extra keybinds.
Best Survival Hunter Legendaries For Mythic+
For Mythic+ I would recommend
. I believe that the choice of which one would end up being for you would depend heavily on your specific pull setup, and your comfort level with using
Best Survival Hunter Legendaries For Raiding
For raids, I would argue that
is the best overall Legendary, due to its versatility, and its good handling of the "wave" type of AoE that happens in raids. However it's important to note that
is the single highest single target output Legendary, so you will still want to consider it if you ever get to the point where you need to max out single target DPS. It will then be your go-to choice.
'Do Not Craft' Legendaries for Survival Hunters
While they can still be crafted, especially based on personal preferences, they are not recommended as optimal choices.
- intended to have synergy with BoP build, however
results in higher uptime.
- very questionable as a pure defensive option, likely pvp oriented. Might still have some use in raid as designated soaker item, but also likely to get broken quickly.
- quite honestly not that bad of a Legendary, but does not seem stronger than the 3 listed above as suggested.
- not bad mechanically, but currently undertuned.
- bad mechanically, undertuned, and just bad overall.
- simply not good.
- too unreliable in PvE.
- does not look like its current tuning will result in it getting used.
- nerfed recently, and is simply undertuned.

Sigh, I have bound the abilities for trap and flare on shift 2 and shift c. No way I can rotate this in every fight I have without breaking my fingers. So the only decent option is Wildfire Cluster, which is also a passive skill, so I wont forget to use it. :>
Btw, what would you chose? Belt or legs? I heard there will be a set bonus in further raids, so it obviously would suck if you block it with legs.
