You post self-referential links. Why is that? Do you get paid more for each link?Also for BM, Ferocity is best leveling build. Get a Wolf or Cat. Sheesh.At 68 GTFO to Northrend. Why would you want to remain in Outland? Northrend = better gear, better XP. Duh.

I disagree, but not vehemently. While a ferocity pet is very handy for a leveling hunter, I think tenacity pets give the largest margin for error while learning the class. Having a pet with an aoe threat ability is invaluable when you get jumped by a couple mobs, as happens quite a bit. Hunters don't really have the luxury of having more than two pets while they level, or they risk having all but one pet perpetually 5 levels behind. In that case, I think a tenacity pet, especially a bear, can be a great choice. Swipe by itself can pull three aggroed mobs off you while you retreat to a safe distance. Once you can talent thunderstomp and learn misdirection, you always have easy ways of dumping aggro onto your pet. That being said, at end game, I have 3 ferocity pets and only one tenacity pet (one spot being saved for another spirit beast)Here's my misdirect macro. When I'm in a group, I set my focus to the tank, otherwise, it casts onto my pet./cast [target=focus,exists, target=pet] misdirection

In Azeroth ferocity pets rock. Once you get to outland, their lack of durability really starts to show. I still use a wolf myself, but I could see why someone may opt for something else.

I loved leveling with a tenacity pet - being able to round up 7-8 mobs and gun them down made this my fastest toon to 80 ever. I didn't try ferocity, but for AOE grinding tenacity is nothing to sneeze at.

I'm currently leveling my 2nd hunter (72atm) and 5th character. BM tenacity is the way to go - you can pull 5-6 same level mobs *easily* with a bear - volley,fd,volley,loot. plus with healing glyphs and a build that maxes out pet armor/health you can solo pretty much any group quest you'll get given.
