Will the thunderhawk from the 2P get the mastery bonus for BM hunters? Will that put them back on top?

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.

      This is my current pawn string from sims:
      Agility=21.87, CritRating=18.49, HasteRating=24.16, MasteryRating=22.94, Versatility=17.33
      Is anyone else getting haste over mastery and agi? I recently got the Mantle (FINALLY!), so not sure if that is affecting anything. I know crit used to be important for Mantle, so I am not sure why it would be the culprit here. I even tested swapping out my enchants to haste and it did provide a slight boost while maintaining the same scaling. Mastery is at 9300, Crit at 9300 and Haste at 8000 (Roughly), so I definitely dont feel I have enough mastery to start warranting haste over it and agi.
      Just wondering if anyone else is seeing this too?
      I do have the current sim build, so no issues there.

      Hey hunters! 

      I used to play hunter back in the old days (Max level 80), and now starting with the game again. Therefore starting to gather some research before making my character (Yea thats my thing). First of all im a raider, love doing that, therefore want to master a spec there can give me a spot on the raid teams. I passionated in the spec BM for a while, but have a hard time to chose, as my research came across Survival. Survival look pretty strong at the moment, when i look at characters as Nnoggah. So i want the hear some of the more experience guys in here, how is BM doing compared to Survival, is it lacking behind or is it doing better if played right? 

      Hope to hear some opinions. PS i know typical question here, but as a person i just like to get all facts gather before starting something.
      Kind regards - TeemoTeemo

      I noticed I'm doing absolutely horrible on H guldan. I've done anywhere from 360-400k dps on him, still no kill yet either, yet on the other bosses I pretty much have no issue getting enough damage in. My ilvl is 892 and here's a list of what I have on me at the moment. I sadly do not have logs.

      All applications will be reviewed and considered however if you are playing a class/spec combination we need then your chances of joining will be higher.
      A little bit of info about us:
      We are a group of friends and serious raiders on EU Twisting Nether looking to recruit skilled like-minded players into our roster for Mythic Legion raids and onwards. We will offer a sociable and fun raiding environment while maintaining a strong desire for progression. Our Discord is very active and we encourage all members to chat and play together not only for raids. The guild formed late March 2016 and fully cleared 13/13 Mythic Hellfire Citadel pre nerf shortly after. We've since been improving our world ranking every tier.
      We currently raid 3 days per week on Mythic: Wednesday, Sunday and Tuesday 19:15-22:15 server time. While it is not a lot we try to make the most out of our time. We run optional heroic/normal/alt/previous tier raids during off days in which raiders are welcome to come to. Our members also play other games outside raid times together where anyone is welcome to join(LoL, Dota, HotS, Overwatch etc.).
      Our loot system for Mythic is RC Loot Council.
      What we expect from you:
      - We are a raiding guild with only a 9 hour per week schedule so you are expected to attend and be ON TIME! However we understand things can come up sometimes but please let us know.
      - Be able to speak and understand the English language and not be afraid to communicate with other members during raids.
      - Actively doing dungeons/world quests to improve your gear and artifact weapon.
      - Have a strong understanding of the current raid tier and be able to play your class to it's potential.
      - Always come to raids prepared(i.e. bringing food and potions, etc).
      - Come fully gemmed and enchanted with the correct stats for your class and spec.
      - Access to Discord and a working microphone.
      - Have a computer that can handle 20 man raiding and a good, stable internet connection.
      - Exorsus Raid Tools, Weakauras2 and RC Loot Council addons installed. We may ask you to install others.
