I lied

With beta opening for Wrath of the Lich King, new talents and new abilities are now available to the public. Having discovered these, I am now insanely happy. MM HAS VIABILITY!

Yes, with all the new MM talents, it looks like we might actually have what we've always assumed the trees to be: BM hitting faster, MM hitting harder.

Things I must do once I hit 80:
Find out the best amount of haste, since it appears inevitable.
Figure out how to do a decent shot rotation with said haste - incorporating arcane and multi among all the steady and kill shots will be a challenge, especially if we are forced to be 1:1 constantly.
Figure out how to talent my Windserpents!
Consider raiding group dynamics, what with the pet buffs, etc. As a MM raider, my pet will do what exactly? What more will I bring to the group?

You goofball, it's gonna be:

Steady, Arcane, Auto, Steady, Auto, Steady, Kill, Auto, repeat.

Watch. I'm calling it right now.

I agree. I'm thinking that Multi shot won't be shot rotation viable anymore, freeing up those 6 points. But I could very well be wrong. Tests tests tests! At least everything can be hand rotated now - no more macros!

I miss you Rilgon! (Come back)

I might be coming back for Wrath if everything shapes up well for MM Hunters.

Or if they let us tame Core Hounds/Ancient Core Hounds with the 51 MM talent. I swear, if I can tame a Core Hound, I'll spec BM and never look back. :P

And yeah, freeing up Barrage/Improved Barrage lets me grab some other talents like full points in Careful Aim and Improved Hunter's Mark. Mmm.
