"Don't push me, lad. Or me pet." - Grumpherys[1]

The Beast Within is a Beast Mastery hunter PvP talent, available at level 20.


  • Before patch 4.0.1, this talent was sometimes known as the "Hunter I.W.I.N. Button" — this is because it would make you immune to all types of crowd control for 10 seconds, and most classes rely on crowd control to win a fight to keep you in melee range during combat.
  • The talent description before patch 4.0.1 would appear to be a reference to the movie The Terminator which contains the line, "It can't be bargained with, it doesn't feel pity or remorse or fear and it absolutely will not stop ever until you are dead."
