Nice article, but I do have 2 questions for you:1. Not taking Animal Handler as a BM hunter seems backwards to me. You don't take that talent for the reduced cooldown of Master's Call... It's one of the few ways (if not the only way) for a hunter to increase his/her pet's hit chance. Fewer misses = more threat/more DPS. Why do you advise against that?2. I know that this article leans more towards a level 80 perspective... But it seems to me that at level 70, raiding BM hunters will have some tough choices on the bottom of the tree. If you had to choose between Kindred Spirits and the Go for the Throat/Rapid Killing combo that we use now, which would you choose for a level 70 BM raiding tree once the patch hits?Thanks!

1- Your pet inherits your +hit, and doesn't need any extra on top of that.2- I think I'll take Kindred Spirits, and 1 point in GftT. But i'm not sure.

Regarding to your first comment, I'm going to theorize this:With the rise of Tenacity pets and similar tanking talents in other pet trees, it probably became superfluous to have a minor talent like that. From what I've heard and seen in the BRK videos, Tenacity pets have absolutely no problem holding aggro. With the buff to standard Growl, new pet family special abilities and even access Taunt with some pets, it seems Hunter pet keep aggro is just fine.

@obarthelemy"1- Your pet inherits your +hit, and doesn't need any extra on top of that."When did this change get implemented, to my knowledge pets have never inherited +hit, and I hadn't seen this change in the patch notes. Is this a new 3.0.2 change? If that is in fact true I'd agree dump Animal Handler, but if not, Animal Handler is a no-brainer for me.
