so do any hunters spec survival? i really can't even think of a lesser used spec of any class to compare it to. fire mages maybe. sub rogues (although pvp with a shadowstep build rocks). any survival hunters out there?

My hunter is still spec'd Survival.The enjoyment I get from unleashing Explosive Shots cannot be beaten... even if my DPS is a bit lower than it would be as Marks.

I guess I'd say destro locks...Of course there are survival hunters, there are 10-mans that are Renplishment deficient and need that buff

i spec SV and personally love it. mostly just because of the forgiving nature of it. in all reality though i don't see a whole ton of dps difference between myself and my guildie who specced MM. maybe its a little better play on my part (i.e. use of trinkets, haste potions and pet cd's) or just dumb luck. but personally SV has been really good to me

I play as survival and regularly roflstomp people who read that marksmen is the way to go. Personally the cost of regemming for a soon to be outdated style of play IE. stacking ARP over everything isn't worth it. For me also the blandness of MM...bah. The real question is Anyone having good success with Beast mastery?

BM is amazing if you're close to the ArP hard cap, we're talking 75%+ (1100+ passive rating). But its really boring, just spamming steady shot the whole time and popping CDs =[. Here's hoping it gets better in cata. I, personally, love SV to death but regemmed because MM double-dips on the ICC buff (triple dips in the case of Chimera Shot). That 20% buff is, well, multiplicative when your +20% serpent sting feeds a Chimera thats boosted another 20%, and the resulting Piercing Shots is boosted ANOTHER 20%. So a 20% buff becomes a roughly 45% buff to chimera and 72% to piercing shots. Like frostheim said, its multiplication! But outside of ICC, SV still wipes the floor with MM hands down.

@MergetvsCata isn't coming out for months. That's almost forever in WoW terms.And way less people play BM versus Survival or Marks. Plus Fire is currently top Mage spec.
