Epic killshot disengage around that LoS.
How about pets getting bugged when they try to go down a level? Such as the little rising on Dalaran or the bride on blades edge. The pet will stand still, like a moron. The only way u can get it down is to either put it on follow and run down yourself or, jump down and spam follow so it teleports.
Was playing BM in 2s and my pets suddenly started changing targets randomly. Interrupted a scatter->Trap i was doing by attacking the scatterd target.
50% dispel chance on a 3 sec timer isnt reliable.
The pet bugs are easy to control. Make a macro like /cast sequence pet passive -> Attack. It fixes the bug. If anything it is better using that than it used to be on maps like blades edge so you can jump down now and the pet comes with you.
As for random pet charging, are you sure your pet isnt on defensive or you have some macro which puts it on defensive. Ive never had this problem. If anything I think the pet charging is nice, its always fun to pet charge a healer and drop a trap or intimidation it then drop a trap. You will get a lot more traps like this than using scatter traps as people now jump on their healers so quick when you scatter.
You just have to do things differently as BM, you have to actually use your pet for more than roar & web/stun.
The only saving grace Hunter has is Readiness. Readiness is the only way you can get real, strategic kills against many Priest and RSham comps. You can't drop that for Kill Commands that crit for 15,000. The Beast Within is just like Deterrence used to be: good players will control you for its duration. BM cannot replace MM unless they revert the TBW change, which they won't.
When would you pop TBW? It is only really ferals that can cc my TBW. I might catch a deathcoil but the rest I can FD or get dispelled quickly (Tell your healer you need quick as anything dispells when you pop TBW). I normally end up using it during my warriors fear unless its is vs a shaman team when ill normally do it on Hoj trap scatter.
The most insane thing with BM is the sheer burst you can do. When you pop TBW you can get 2 KC for 12-25k and 8-10 arcane shots. Which hit for 10k no problem as BM. Even when you do not have TBW up hitting a 15k KC along side a 15k arcane in the same second hurts.
