Lynx rush is affected by bestial wrath, so you want to use it inside bestial wrath, DB is not affected by BW and should therefore be used before. You need to use stampede within the first 5 seconds of the fight, because otherwise your pot falls off before the stampede runs out, and the pets needs the potion to do maximum damage.

How do you incorporate Fervor to your rotations and, more importantly, how do you incorporate it into your opening sequence?

Roger there is a cool thing bm hunters can do. If you capture a Quilen, you can use Eternal Guardian to revive an ally mostly like a bress. Since switching pets would result in dps loss, you can simply cast stampede and spam the macro:
#showtooltip Eternal Guardian
/cast [@focus,dead] Eternal Guardian
/cast [@player] Eternal Guardian
If you have multiple Quilen they don't share cd, so you can ress multiple players. It can even ress yourself if the pet is close and you spam it when you die but before the pet disappears (that's what the 3rd line is for).

I know about this, but:

Do you use any macro's for combining Rapid Fire / BW at the start of and fight, and when BL/TW , pots are used?
I don't know how to do this efficiently whilst getting the best dps.

what with BM hunter stats, mastery> haste if I have haste platu?
And 13.63% haste, without Shaman hast buff?

Are the stat weights and haste softcaps still up-to-date? everywhere i'm looking it says either 10% or 12,5% as a hastecap
Also, in case you calculated the weights yourself, do you mind explaining how to calculate the haste weight? crit and mastery is kinda easy (mastery doesn't affect all skills, crit does, so crit>mastery) but i have no idea how to include things like cast time, auto shot speed and focus regeneration into my calculation

Hey. I noticed yourself Roger and Hentrenson have been using spirit bond and barrage as your selected talents. I was wondering if you could give an insight as to why? Are they buffed? I thought Glaive Toss and especially Iron hawk were far better selections.

I don't use it, but if you chose to do so, you should just keybind it at an easy-access keybind so that you can use it in between globals easily. As for the openers, if you do not use A murder of Crows, it is pretty useless, since with all the haste effects and most of your globals don't require a lot of focus, you end up focus capped or at least high on focus. All I can say is perhaps as SV instead of cobra shooting to keep your initial serpent sting up, you should do a 2nd multi shot as a follow up since you will have so much focus. Also if ur having difficulty with the opener, you can just macro it with your readiness like this:

No I don't do that, I have my BW macroed only with Kill Command since in many occassions I get them synced up during the fight and having to press 2 keys at the exact same time is never good for your dps. I also have my orc racial on that macro.

What you can do is what I used to have, which is Rapid Fire macroed to Readiness, but then if you hit that macro twice it uses both rapid fires :D, I stopped using that because of some lag it bugged out and used the 2nd Rapid fire even if I pressed the macro once. Now I just manually do it. I now have Kill Command on that macro with readiness, since it is the ability I want to use right after using Readiness
/cast Kill Command
We only use them for the last boss, Will of the Emperor. The reason behind this is this:

As for the Spirit Bond, that fight is the only one from the 6 that has constant aoe damage taken. Also there are not huge damage taken phases. The damage is always there and is always small. That means that spirit bond is always being effective, and there is no real benefit from aspect of the iron hawk to help us survive any burst damage taken.

Hey Roger, i'm just curious to know, what spec, talents and glyphs do you use at the moment when you raid?
