Nice article. Though, as a person who plays a hunter main and has a geared druid tank alt, I must agree with Hoggersbud. I cannot emphasize enough how annoying it is to have people other than the tank pull. Hell, just last night I was in Gun'drak normal and some idiot hunter MD'd a pack of mobs to the tank when he was still in the previous room examining the loot that dropped from the boss. It didn't QUITE lead to a wipe, but it was very close to it. (Only the hunter and healer lived.) When I'm on my druid tank, I have a strict "you yank it, you tank it" policy, and I will not hesitate to boot a pull-happy hunter. You're not doing anyone any favors.As for the whole passive/defensive thing for pets... Honestly, my pet is ALWAYS on Defensive. It doesn't take a lot to keep an eye on your pet, and you'll get more consistent DPS from defensive rather than passive. For hunters who have trouble managing their pet, keeping it on passive can be beneficial, but I, personally, haven't needed to do that since BC when I got my first taste of raiding.
