All traits were removed from the game prior to the press event of July 2011. These are archived for future curiosity and reference. This page is not to be updated with current info; see the skills page for current skill information.

Beast Hunter was a Trait possessed by the Barbarian, Monk, Witch Doctor, and Wizard. It provided bonus damage to Beast type monsters.

This trait has been removed from the game, along with Just...Stay...Dead! and Demonsbane [1], according to Bashiok in a forum post:

We agree, and they were removed from Traits a while back. (not that you could have known that) So yay!

We don’t want traits (passives) to be boring. Even the ones that are pretty bland stat increase type passives, we try to make them feel weighty. Trait points are fairly rare, so that lets us make each point feel a lot sexier to spend. Even if they’re just standard +% stat passives, they’re BIG +% increases. But, there’s also a lot of traits that are fairly intricate in what they provide, and to no small degree can be game changers. Either way they’ll be a crucial component to any character build.

This was a Barbarian, Monk, Witch Doctor, and Wizard trait. It was virtually certain that the Demon Hunter will gain it as well, as her development continued to progress, albeit at the time of writing this article, she only had a handful of traits from her reveal at BlizzCon 2010.
