makes sense for aoe bm was extremely behind in dps. If you wanted good aoe you needed to switch to surv.

Perhaps I can finally use BM...

Cause before the most damage my pet was doing per hit was 1800 when I did a test of killing 4 monsters and with beast cleave only I was standing there for like a whole day rofl or at least that's what it felt like since my pet refused to hit more than 2k per hit and these monsters had 400k+ hp...

And I mean 1800 per second so depending how many times your pet hits that doesn't equate to much.
With recount telling me beast cleave was doing around 12k so I'm guessing that means overall?

Anyhow surv's overall damage is like 60k+ (thats without serpent sting) for me, with improved serpent hitting around 30k+ and each serpent sting going upto 50k and multi shot doing a lot also, so compared to the 12k that's just sad...

Oh and aoe wise from what I remember I had like 80k or so with BM and 120k with surv this was old gear however I have yet to do another test.

Sorry if anything is hard to understand I had a hard time writing it so that people would understand what I meant.

Yes the AOE damage in Survival is, and has been for quite a while, much higher than the other 2 specs. This change will bring BM a little closer since it will almost double the Beast Cleave damage, but SV will still do more. On single targets, the other changes done will make BM and SV very close in damage.

And if we can reasonably get to the point where hunters can play the spec they prefer instead of being ridiculed into "the" spec of the moment, I'll be satisfied. I've gotten as tired of seeing Marks hunters fussing about BM as I was pleading for BM to get some positive attention back in Wrath.

Agreed. Hopefully all the specs are in the "middle of the pack" where GC thinks we should be, and the outliers get adjusted.

(And frankly, with all the changes in Panda, from the xpac to this patch, BM isn't quite the special flower that it used to be, so having them all even is even more imperative).
