  • Dire Beast
  • Haste increased by 5%.
  • Duration: 8 seconds

Dire Consequences is an Azerite trait available to Beast Mastery and Survival hunters.


  • On proc, it triggers the effect of [Dire Beast]. As a result, if this trait procs within 8 seconds of Dire Beast being cast (or vice versa), the haste buff will not be duplicated; its duration will simply be refreshed when the second Beast appears.
  • This trait has synergy with talents and effects that allow you to use [Kill Command] more frequently, such as the Survival talents [Alpha Predator] and [Wildfire Infusion].
