I'd like to see a talent somewhere fairly deep in the BM tree that allow's BM to generate good AOE without having to burn a B/Wrath. Maybe (dare I make the comparison) something akin to a "Swipe" ability that our soon-to-be-pet-feral-druids have. Ie. the talent would give the AOE to our pet - not us. Forget the nonsense of the Worm and Chimera AOE attacks, but a proper hard-hitting AOE talent for a BM hunter's pet would fit nicely. Survival has very good AOE, MM has the makings of good AOE with Bombardment, I'd like to see BM receive the same.As for a BM hunter's level 10 special ability/talent - I'd really like to see that as Bestial Wrath. Its a vital cooldown that forms the foundation of BM hunting (in a raid) in my opinion. The sooner BM hunters get to use it and get familiar with it the better, I say.

Have you used the worm's burrow attack during rapid fire and B/W? I pulled 83k according to my guildie (a mage) who prides himself on his AoE damage. This was on BoT trash in our first time in the instace.

@mikeThe problem is that we can't switch pets during a boss fight, forcing us to choose between damage (and a pet buff/debuff) and AoE. No other class is forced to sacrifice buffs and damage for a whole fight just so they can use their AoE.I think we really do need some kind of pet-AoE hunter talent. Make it aggro-free if you don't want hunters to be AoE-tanking.In the meantime, can we fix the Chimaera's AoE? It hits such a tiny area it's practically useless.

of course we can switch pets in fights. i do this regularly on specific fights.

I did 104k dps on a zombie pack in ZG with BW + all cooldowns.. with a Devilsaur (no AoE attack). I honestly don't think it makes that big of a difference to have to pull a new pet.But pulling a new pet is rarely an issue as long as you time it right so that he doesn't get one shot by aoe. I swap out my Devilsaur (sweet, sweet 5% crit) for my Corehound at the end of a fight if we need a bloodlust. It is too much of a dps loss to lose that crit buff for the entire fight so the 5 seconds of pet downtime is still worth it.
