    So I went to ds today, did madness normal, and since gms said they fixed BM KC issues in that fight, ill write about my experience:
    Still shitty.
    Pet can KC tentacles just fine, problem is Corruption. He still positions himself wrongly, he takes a lot of time to switch from tentacle to Corruption, and takes an awfull time getting there (forcing me to delay my KC (since he's out of range)). If I have to manually send pet beforehand every time a Corription spawns...
    When switching platforms, pet STILL goes out on his way, going up and down on each platform, instead of jumping with me, or despawning/respawning next to me. If you do red->blue, pet will take a LONG time to get near you, delaying (in my case) almost 10 seconds my KC.
    Sometimes, on the same platform, after killing Corruption, instead of just turning back and running to the tentacle, my pet would make an detour, went outside of the platform, underwater where the Corruption was, and tried to go through the water to attack the tentacle. Couldn't KC, had to manually call him to me, for him to be on top of the platform, and only then send him to tentacle.
    THANK GOD MoP is coming in 2 weeks. Madness is the worst fight ever for a BM hunter atm (pre-patch it wasnt so bad, pet did not have this kind of pathing issues, he despawned and respawned near you whenever you jumped platforms, he would position himself all the time on top of the platform, instead of trying to swim to his target).

    they said all the fights in mop don't have problems with KC, i think they just don't care about fixing it for madness as top priority right now.

    Was pretty fine for me. A few issues with pathing, yeah, and one blowing up by parasite maybe, but overall dps was fine, a bit more than pre-patch. And man, are congealing bloods slow now...
    Old Gods made me do it.

    Madness is quite OK now since the pet can actually DPS tentacles now.

    My pet used to die on the last tentacle platform since we exploded the corrupting parasite near the tentacle at the same spot where my pet went if I did not manually position him. You may ask: "WHY U NO POSITION?" well... for atleast me the platform bugs with the pet position so I have to find a sweetspot where my pet agrees he can possibly go to and that takes like 30sec so...

    Now with every pet having the Heart of the Phoenix ill just let him die and insta ress or pop BW if it's ready at that point(glyphed).

    Had a couple of problems on Madness heroic aswell, nothing major as i run my pet on passive and manually make him target/attack what ever i want which seems to solve almost all the pathing problems i had when trying to use assist (just being lazy tbh)

    The MAJOR problem i had was the last phase with the head, i could not get my pet to Attack Deathwings giant Chin for love nor money, assist didn't work, manually targeting and sending didn't work, hell manually place him all over the damn platform and telling him to attack didn't work, thank god there's a shed load of adds too attack in heroic or my pet would have been next to useless in that phase =/

    All this aside though it seems all the other bugs are ironed out and BM is bloody beautiful state right now, and assuming there's no clashes in mists then its going to be a fun raiding tier.
    I have loved to the point of madness; That which is called madness, That which to me, is the only sensible way to love.

    you could always have activated cower for that encounter or used petfollow macro. personnaly i have bound petfollow to my ground mount and pet move to to my flying mount.

    Do we have a BiS list yet?

    Don't know of any formal lists, but you could probably get it from:

    http://beta.femaledwarf.com/

    Go to public settings up top, just hit search, and pick the highest one... probably BiS or near-BiS gear there.

    With reforging, there really is no such thing as a BiS list....

    If it is a heroic version, it is likely BiS.

    In the cases where you need to decide which tier piece, if applicable, to replace with a non tier then I think most people who know their class can figure that out.

    This should be our BiS list

    Pets don't die on madness anymore due to aoe effects. Tried it last week, didn't even take 5% dmg from parasite exploding near to it.

    Someone add to the pet flow chart that spore bats now give 5% spell haste. Had to be told that by our mage, it was rather mortifying. Literally just a passive c&p of mind quickening (spriest passive) now in sporebat spell book. Not auto cast, not something you have to worry about it casting or not, it's just always there.
