While the 2-set benefits from BM's mastery, the 4-set benefits from survival's. However, they have different proc chances depending on your spec (BM has the lowest chance to proc the 2-set, and surv has the lowest chance for the 4-set, pretty sure).

I've been working on implementing these set bonuses into simulation craft, so I've spent a lot of time on the 2-piece bonus. so here are a few findings or confirmations of things that were announced.

The Thunderhawk only casts spell_nature_lightning.jpgLightning Blast. At low haste levels, it casts it 5 times. As you increase your haste, the chance to get 6 casts increases. At some point, you get a chance to have 7 casts, and so on. I'll get back when I have computed values.

spell_nature_lightning.jpgLightning Blast does not scale with Attack Power, so it always does 20k damage, in average. If you are playing a Beast Mastery Hunter, then it scales with your Mastery, so if you have 25% Mastery, then your Lightning Blast will always do 25k damage, in average.

spell_nature_lightning.jpgLightning Blast can critically strike, according to your own critical strike chance. It can also miss, regardless of your chance to miss, so we believe that it may be a bug.

Also, the proc for the Thunderhawk is on a set value per minute: 0.7 PPM (Procs Per Minute) for Beast Mastery, 1 PPM for Marksmanship, and 1.2 for Survival. I still want to test whether having more Haste Rating causes the Thunderhawk to proc more often, but it is hard to get conclusive data (with 1 proc per minute, I'll let you judge how long I need to test :P).

Actually, after further testing, it seems that recount was not properly working, and that Haste has no influence on the amount of casts of Lightning Blast by the Thunderhawk.

    • [MM] Talent: Stampede
      By Katamarii
      Good Morning! :)
      Thought about Stampede and found this in your Guides:
      Stampede is optimal with 5 Ferocity-specced, non-Exotic pets in your active slots (the ones you can summon using Call Pet). If you either do not have 5 active pets, or any of them are not Ferocity-specced and non-Exotic, the effectiveness of your Stampede will be lower
      I'm not using the manor "Glyph of Stampede" (it will summon copys of my active pet).
      'Cause I've still my BM Specc, I also have exotic Pets with me.
      4/5 are exotic. The one non-exotic had the tank specc active to save my ass if something goes extremly wrong.
      Using Stampede calls 5 copys of my non-exotic wolf, without using the glyph.
       
      I think it is okay to play without the glyph but I shoud set my pet to ferocity.
      Or should I remove the exotic pets and chose 5 different non-exotic pets? There should be no different?

    • Research Survey For College Student
      By collegechic
      Hello,
       
      I am a college student studying communications. I am currently taking a communications theory class and I need some help! I am writing a case study on WoW using symbolic interactionism to understand realism and relationships inside of WoW. If you could take my short 12 question survey it would be a HUGE help. I am trying to get more players of the game to make my results more diverse. As well I hope to compare the answers from non-players to players. Thank you so much to whoever helps out!!
