BM is the one and only viable spec (it’s also pretty damn OP when popping CDs).
Many comps are viable to a high level from what I’ve tested: KFC (with any healer; Druid is superior due to the CC and HoTs then Paladin/Resto Shaman). Then we have other comps such as triple BM Hunter. I’ve yet to test anything else but from what I know and have seen, the following classes are Top Tier: Warrior, BM Hunter, Resto Druid, Resto Shaman, Holy Paladin, Death Knight. Mages are close behind but not god-like as they are countered a lot by BM Hunters.
Pet: Spirit Beast (Heal + HoT on a 28 second cooldown).
Second best pet is the Crane (4 second Sleep, instant cast – doesn’t DR trap)
The Crane is superior to Monkey therefore rendering Monkeys obsolete.
You will generally want to be popping Rapid Fire along with Beastial Wrath, PvP agility use trinket and possibly stampede depending on the comp.
NOTE: The 4-set bonus makes it so Rapid Fire grants 3200 PvP Power when active and the actual haste is pretty pointless anyway as BM so you should be using it for a flat damage increase. (never use rapid fire for cobra shot purposes)
- I move with E S D F
- I set Arena focus 1/2/3 with Naga button 1 + Shift and Alt modifier
Important: you should have your abilities with CDs that you need to know the CD of close together, as you may know camouflage is now a mini vanish in combat so I will be moving that towards my readiness on my bars in the near future.
