First of all,i know there is already a tread about BM Hunter rotation by our Tequill, here's the link :
But this one are my PVE experiences, feedbacks and additional tips,after following Tequill's( good bless you for putting up your guides:P).
Here some proofs of my dps ,as BM hunter,with my main(ATSHARA) that has item level of 362
Uploaded with ImageShack.us
OK cut the crap!!
Here are the tips and guides
BM SPEC ADVANTAGES
1.Deal super crazy amount of burst damage as opener.You will be the talk of recount for the first 15-20 seconds.true story.
2.Very viable in heavy movement battle, since our primary attack (Arcane Shot) is instant cast!.we can pawn MM hunts in any heavy movement battle,such as Magmaw(BWD) and Councils(BOT)
3.Secondary burst is useful for in-battle boss bubble and rapid adds killing such as Destroying arions;s bubble (BOT),killing Pheonix in Lost City 3rd boss and magmaw;s head(BWD)
4.Your pet will grant the whole raid team few useful buffs,3% damage, Roar of courage,5% crit and so on.
5. Spirit beasts helps healers by healing your tanks with spirit mend.
BM SPEC DISADVANTAGES
1. Extremely pet dependant.Pet died,you are fuc*ed.Loose 40% dps and couple of vital buffs.cant cast beastial wrath and focus fire too:(
2.AOE! need to keep your eyes on your pet health so often.Need to avoid aoe as much as you can.And heal them ASAP.
3. HUNTARDs their pets' aggro.Pet will accidently get some aggro,no mather while combat or sneaking.. Sometime it will cause an epic huntard scene. and killed the whole raid team:P
4. Starting dps with huge burst will gain a lot aggro from the target.

*use cobra macros or fervor whenever you have no focus*

PETS AND THIER CONTROLLING
ONLY BRING FEROCITY PET TO PVE. NO CUNNING AND TENACITY
1.Always use CAT/spirit beast.Use wolf or devilsaur ONLY when there is another cat or a DK or a Warrior in the team.Cat buff give you 1600 AP!!!
2.Autocast all the your pet buff skills.Or you can macro Rabid and Call of the winds with primary burst macro.
3.Make sure growl is NOT AUTOCAST!,,you will screwing up aggro with that skill.=kick from raid
4. Autocast SPRINT and CHARGE!,make sure your pet reach your target BEFORE any burst or dps.!!
5.Pull your pet from AOE, boss or any adds.Use Survivor Macro!
REFORGING AND GEMMING
AGILITY > HIT (8%) > CRIT > MASTERY > HASTE
1. Stack as much agility as possible .More agility ,more attack power(and DPS),so your pet get more AP(and DPS) too!
1.Stacking mastery = pet get more DPS
2. Stacking crit = you get more critical chances
Since BM hunters spec entirely rely on Agility,using some vicious gears in raids is not a big deal.At some points, vicious gears give lot more DPS/AP then normal T11 gears.
We dont need so haste since we don't use Aim shot in our rotation.
More agility will give more dps on your shots,more Crits on your shots and more dps on your pet!..So AGILITY IS THE MAIN STAT TO LOOK AT ON ALL GEARS..
1. A BURST TRINKET.Get any agility burst trinket,even PVP gladiator trinket is better than any haste proc trinket. Choices :
- Unresolve riddle (Baradin Warden exalted,125 comm,badge)
- Ruthless Badge trinket S10 (1650 Conquest points)
- Vici Badge trinket S10 (1650 Honor points)
2.CRIT procs trinket + stat agility
- Essence of cyclone (BOT 1st Boss)
- Grace of The Herald ( Blackrock cavern 2nd Boss)
MUST HAVE IN YOUR BAGS
1.Skewered eel (90 stamina 90 agility for 1 hour )Nyum!
2.Flask of the winds (permanent 300 Agility for 1 hour)
3.Potion of Tolvir ( amplify our burst to a new level:P)(1200 agility for 25 seconds!!)
PET ATTACK MACRO
Put it next to hunters mark or even bind it to Q button.Your pet must arrive at your target before starting any action or burst.
Cobra shots macro with focus fire .By doing this, your cobra shot will be most probably 0.2 seconds faster in most fight.
/cast focus fire
/cast cobra shot
PRIMARY BURST MACRO( BM Epic burst!)
A deadly opener for any battle.You will be the talk of recount for 15-20 seconds:P.In PVP,you can bring any class to half of their life in 4 seconds.
/cast beastial wrath
/cast rapid fire
/cast call of the wind
Kill Shot macro
This macro will make sure kill shot will be casted,no matter while you are casting cobra shot or even while reviving your pet.This macro will cancel every action and give out Kill shot on the spot!.Get the glyph of kill shot and you can spam this macro twice back to back!!
/cast kill shot
PET SURVIVAL MACRO
Use this when your pet health is nearly half,It will pull away your pet from aoe,reduce the damage taken by 40% for 6 seconds, and heal it!
/cast mend pet
1.Easiest way to get a lvl 85 cat is by taming it from Lost city of tolvir.A level 84 wolf can be tamed from twilight highland.
2. The lvl85 spirit beasts are Ghostcrawler(Vashjr), Ankha ( Hyjal) and Banthe"los (hyjal)
Each of them have special way to catch:
- Ghostcrawler : Appear invincible ( so use beast tracking)
- Anka : Deal on hit KO on armored players.SO must be naked!! while taming it.
- Banthe'los : Flies high and need to be agro carefully to bring it down.
3. Before getting any heroic T11 set,using 2 vicious gears is the best since it give us 150 more agility compare to 2 gears from normal t11.Recomended gears are vicous shoulder and legging.
4.vici bow/xbow /gun are the best range weapons before entering any raid.
