Well said Dilly, one thing i'm sort of considering as BM is, the new talent "Adaptation".
I noticed using this talent that while we get a lot of the abilities of all of the specs, there is a few choices we will have to make, one being pet spec. when using adaptation each spec has a unique ability or abilities that aren't bundled into the talent, Tenacity for example has the abilities "Charge" (a 1 second root on 25 second cooldown), and Thunderstomp an AoE attack. The possible uses I see for the spec is that charge root could be very good for trapping off of since the CD's are so close.. the thunderstomp AoE doesn't seem too useful, but one use I thought of with it, is now that we no longer have hunters mark or serpent sting, we could use it on a priest as they spectral guise to immediately pull them back out, since it is not on our global cooldown as it is a pet ability, and an Aoe. Just one possible use.
The Drawbacks of Tenacity is that we lose Access to Dash, and Bullheaded.
For Cunning we gain access to Dash and Bullheaded our pets trinket so to speak, that is the only perks from picking that pet talent tree. It's very useful I feel for teams that are intelligent and catch your pet in a ring / fear, it sort of guarentees we will be able to sac, even if the pet gets caught in CC.
For Ferocity the only perks at all we have is Dash and Heart of the Phoenix, I personally can't ever see a use for that with how low pet rez time is these days, especially on an 8 minute cooldown, but I just thought I would mention it for completeness. There still may be a few situations where it could be handy.
I'm really not 100% sure which spec I like best, any thoughts Dilly?
