Great post Frost! One thing I want to add is that I did find a use for camo. After getting 1 shot in Heroic Throne of Tides trapping a mob, I now use camo before I trap in the beginning of a pull. It keeps me from getting mob aggro and the tank seems able to pick up the mobs easier.

Thats a good tip, using Camo while shooting a trap to prevent aggro, I was just using it because it look cool. lol

The CC is wonderful and I have yet to be in a heroic where I'm not both running a CC and top dps (or only a few hundred dps behind). Camouflage has been excellent for frequent trapping, and in a solid pug with good CC trash mobs are plentiful and die quickly, which makes me wonder why this "heroics" spec chooses both stamina and over-80% crit increase, which is only useful for tiny parts of any fight, over trap resistance reduction (Survival Instincts), increased crit on trapped targets (Point of No Escape) and the huge boost to aspects of One With Nature in the BM tree. If you're standing in stuff on the ground, it's likely that you will die regardless of how much stamina you have (I wouldn't want my healers wasting precious mana on someone who is), if you aren't standing in stuff you don't need the stamina, and if you aren't using your traps like crazy (relying on Black Arrow for trash) you're not playing Survival very well.

Oh, and as far as traps breaking already trapped mobs, it's not difficult to just drop the trap close to the mob instead of on it (between it and you). When your trap breaks, it just hits the next trap.
