“Love is a dog from Hell.”
The Hunter community is stepping up with information. These guys are the Pros from Dover who do the Sims, tests, studies and math.
Hop on over to Locked and Loaded on the Blizzard Watch site. This is Bendak who is everywhere and bless his heart for it! He also writes the excellent Eyes of the Beast. Let me just put in an excerpt from Locked and Loaded to whet your whistle:
Secondly, you may want to consider using the Steady Focus talent as beast mastery, especially for AoE fights. Steady Focus also increases pet focus regeneration, which leads to more pet basic attacks (Claw, Bite, Smack), which leads to more chances for Frenzy stacks and higher Focus Fire uptime. Dire Beast is still a solid contender for single target DPS.
As you can see, this is the stuff we are all looking for. I think that, for the most part, hunters know what they are doing and do it well. But when we know enough (far beyond a tooltip) thanks to articles like that … well, we excel at our class and have a joy in knowing that we doing it right.
The other guy I’d like to applaud is the Thrill of the Wild writer. This guy is a math guy and knows his stuff. He can tell you why Multistrike works and how it works; amazing. Charts and stuff to make your eyes cross but you walk away with a foundation.
Good news all around, happy hunting!
