This week Ive been asked by my guild to try raiding as BM (havent been BM since vanilla) to provide the raid with Heroism, so I think I have an unique perspective as an experienced raider that is very new to BM (read: BM noob). Granted these comments concern playability experience, but if there are any changes/improvements to the trees Id like to see them address the below issues. 1) There are much more cooldowns to manage. Survival by contrast is very intuitive and more forgiving (but not too forgiving). Got me wondering if I need to rely on Macros again, but there is much more 'buff' cooldowns together with special shots that its a little jarring. It does feel a little better than MM's current state which frankly, I cannot stand (MM raiding presently is so unforgiving and unintuitive that it allows zero margin for error and feels clunky)2) Kill Command as a special shot is decent but Im not a fan of how it is reliant upon the pet actually being on the target. This is a problem when changing targets or if a target/boss is in "flight phase" - in which case I am unable to use most of my damage capabilities. I imagine melee classes will give me grief for saying that but coming from MM and Survival raiding experience, I will just say that this was an adjustment for me.
