The issue is that BM lags FAR behind MM and SV in damage output. BM is best at single target DPS, it suffers from target switches more than either of the other specs. On festergut, the closest ICC has to Patchwerk, the best MM hunters are pushing 12k DPS, the best SV hunters are pushing 11k DPS, and the best BM hunters are pushing 9.5k DPS.2.5k DPS difference, over the course of the 5 minute encounter is 750,000 health. And that's on the fight where BM has the best shot at closing the gap. Compare it to a fight like Putricide, which requires rapid target switches, and the gap jumps to 4k DPS.If you're doing 3.8k as a BM hunter, you could probably be doing 4.5k as a different spec. That's 210,000 damage you're costing your raid over the course of a festergut fight. Had any close wipes on him lately?
