#showtooltip Steady Shot/cast Steady Shot/cast [target=pettarget,exists] Rabid/script UIErrorsFrame:Clear();I actually only use this with a 50/11/0 build. The rake/claw thingisn’t necessary if you have at least 1 talent point in Go For TheThroat, which generates more than enough focus for abundant usage ofboth. The problem with the 51-pt BM talent right now is that GFTT isan 11-pt talent in MM and thus it is mutually exclusive to Exoticpets until LV71. This leaves pets majorly focus starved. With a 51+BM talent spec you have the following options:1) Leave them both on auto-cast, and the results are fairly random.Bite/Claw/Smack will eat up as much focus as they can every 1.25s(pet GCD), often leaving the specials without fuel, and they may takea very long time to re-apply. This hurts stacking effects andDOT/debuff uptime significantly. Specials aren’t presentlyprioritized over focus dumps for pet AI ‘focus budgeting.’ Thisis being fixed next patch when specials are 20 focus, and focus dumpsare 25.2) Disable auto-cast of Bite/Claw/Smack, allowing your pet specialsexclusive use of pet focus. This guarantees specials happen, buthurts pet DPS since Bite/Claw/Smack is a major component of itsdamage.3) Use the original macro I posted above, which prioritizes special,focus dump, and attempts to proc rabid on cooldown (it has no focuscost, but must be manually triggered).
