I've been looking for a topic about hunters in 5.2, and what people think about the buffs we're getting to mm and survival but it seems like there is none atm.
So here it is, i know that 5.2 hit US servers today, and it'll hit EU servers tomorrow. What is your thoughts guys, will BM still be the better spec, or do you think we'll see some MM and maybe even survival hunters this upcomming season?
Personally i'm a bit tired of the BM playstyle, and i'd love if MM or Surv actually were able to compete on high rating in next season. :)

Nope, US servers are up and no patch so its safe to assume no 5.2 this week, and s12 ends next week, and then s13 starts the week after

Haven't had the time to mess around on the PTR, is MM coming back or SV viable in 5.2 or i can just focus on my Monk? :/.

BM may still be superior to Marks due to the trinkets from BW, but Marks is going to be insanely good.

The damage buffs to Aimed, Steady, and Chimera are very nice, and the fix on Powershot make Marksman awesome. I believe they are taking a look at our Mastery aswell, which procs a LOT as MM right now, but I don't think they like it.

Hunters are looking so good in 5.2, GC is fearing they might be too good

Unfortunately, BW acting as a second "Trinket" Automatically makes MM shit. BM is so brainless, would be nice of blizzard to make the effect of BW baseline somehow, because it basically makes MM worthless unless the damage is buffed to an unimaginable scale. :(

If at the very least Readiness didn't reset BW, Marks would actually be maybe comparable. But having two trinkets available so often is insanely good. It's too much of an advantage for one spec to have.

Why the hell does readiness still reset it?

No. He often said they were overpowered during those patches.

This^,

A quality of life issue fix for BM too, i.e. you can BW out of LOS of pet and a pretty nice beast cleave buff for RBG flag protection.

If I can find a 2xdps comp that does not involve a rogue, warrior, or monk I'm picking up wyvern sting.  

Surv will still be shit, explosive shot still too low and black arrow is lolz.

MM time will tell how well it scales with incoming weapons.

I definitively see MM being highly viable imo, great single target burst/damage, much more sustained damage than BM without having to deal with garbage pet mechanics.

At least it worked great in Wargames so far and i'm still stuck with T1 due to inactivity last season.

Playing MM while re-gearing and having so much more fun than I did as BM.

I keep trying MM because I keep hoping that with the buffs it actually is better than BM and the damage is definitely there for sure, I would go and say its actually really high. But just the utility you get from BM with Intimidation (and shale spider web stun if you choose to get it) along with Bestial Wrath with it  all being reset by Readiness makes it still better than MM.
