@ClbullI agree as well, Clbull. However a flaw i find with your mm theory of removing imp arcane shot? Now i do not use arcane shot within my rotation due to my amount of passive armor penetration (and in 4+ months the arp discussion will become redundant), but i know that many hunters, since that their arp is not at a certain level, weave arcane shot into their rotation. Removing that arcane shot buff may cut out a big portion of dps for some hunter builds, as aimed shot and steady realistically won't be dealing that much at ALL. Reducing by arcane could cut to pieces that mm build, and although i would not be unhappy, i find it slightly unsatisfactory to being restricted to one mm build that will only gain high damage with high armor pen. Also, scaling serpent sting would create another obvious unbalance in mm. However, as much as i like increasing scaling arcane shot/serpent (Perhaps only for bm, which could resolve that issue. Imagine adding on to a talent either hidden or unhidden deep in the bm spec which increases the scaling of serpent sting and arcane shot) the arcane bonus would provide a great amount of HUNTER damage, not just steady shot and pet auto, which i think falls directly into Ghostcrawler's aforementioned requirements if they choose to buff BM (which i doubt)In response to your pet scaling idea (which i and probably every other hunter loves, desires, and agrees with) how about this radical idea? What if, we LOWER the pet scaling of attack power, but RAISE the pet scaling from agility? By doing so, we keep the attack power scaling at the status quo, but are able to give our pets crit, armor, and dodge! Now that being said, there are daunting calculations required to figure out how much one would have to reduce ap and increase agil scaling to keep the pet's net ap almost exactly the same, but i think after testing it could work!Lastly, i would love to see increased scaling of our pet's stamina. It would not affect its dps, only its survivalbilty which is a major drawback in bm from time to time (note: remember that if our pet dies we lose a lot, and it CAN be very bad). It would affect PvP though, and blizzard has stated they don't want overpowered pets in PvP.GoshawkOrc HunterLightning's Blade
