I'm being completely serious. If you though the MoP Launch version of BM was fine in PvP then you are actually not very smart at all and probably won't ever be good enough to reach a point in which your opinion becomes valid. This is why theorycrafters you find on places like Elitist Jerks are so renown, because they are very smart people who know what they are talking about in a number of different aspects.
10 secs of CC immunity for you and your pet with Silencing Shot, Intimidate, Scatter Shot and Trap available to you. Along with Readiness that resets them all.
If you think i have ever said hunters were "fine" then you really really are one stupid person.

We were assigned to certain adds to misdirect to the tank though.
I personally like where we are now and it seems that we'll still be fine in 5.2, especially after nerfs to other classes. Although I'd like to see BM's single-target DPS nerfed just a bit, so that I could play the spec I actually like (SV) and not something that I have to.
It seems to me that hunters scaling is always off, so they have to re-scale them manually. Ugh.
Old Gods made me do it.
5.3 will bring some changes...hopefully...else 6.0 it is o_o
Let's face it Hunters are completely screwed right now and everyone is delusional to it.
Survival is borderline unplayable and from what I hear Marksman is in even worse shape! The only good class right now is BM! How the hell is it that in Cata I was topping DPS charts as Survival and now it's so low that if it weren't for the healers I literally would be dead last on the Damage charts? I'm seriously starting to question why my hunter is my main.
Giving Marks a slight buff to be competitive with Beast's single target while also increasing Beast's AoE to be more on the level of Marks would at least let Marks be a valid alternative without causing a mass respec over to Marks. Increasing the damage of Steady, Aimed, and Chimera by 10% would be a decent start and our PvP Marksman brethren would enjoy the slight damage boost as well, while Beast Cleave would simply have its damage % increased a tad.
Survival would still have its niche of the superior AoE spec and the only spec with multitarget potential, while having respectable single target to boot.

Also the Aspect of the Fox removal and allowing us to cast Steady, Cobra and Barrage on the move is also a DPS increase no matter how good you were at DPSing on the move.
5% additional AP from Aspect of the (Iron)Hawk is not a QoL change either, it sound like a straightforward DPS increase, too (roughly 5%)

I wish they gave MM some kind of cleave. This way we'd have a great combination of specs, each of which was good for particular encounters - SV for AOE, BM for single target, MM for cleave fights. IMO, that's better than having 3 specs equal in everything and definitely better than having a FOTM spec each patch.
sorry dude you are dumb... BM is middle of the pack and you want it nerfed...11 dps specs for raidsIt's not middle. It's top 7 spec currently, and it's def going to be staying there for a while.
7th per your number
puts it below middle.
*1 This is top
*5.5 This is middle!
*7 This is below middle...
Your right hunters arent middle... they are actually below middle... lulz
Mage = 3
Warlock = 3
Hunter = 3
Warrior = 2
Death Knight = 2
Monk = 1
Paladin = 1
Shaman = 2
Druid = 2
Rogue = 3
Pretty sure that all adds up to 23..........Just sayin......
If it's in the top 7 specs then that means there are still 16 specs behind it...
