Hey all, Im new to survival hunter, i used to play bm/mm before, and with them i never really worried about what pet to use. With bm i just went with a random spirit beast and with mm i run the Lone WolfLone Wolf talent. I get that the whole point of choosing a pet in survival is which will give to more procs of Mastery: Hunting CompanionMastery: Hunting Companion. Here's my question. Does a carrion bird's Bloody ScreechBloody Screech and a tank pet's ThunderstompThunderstomp have a chance to proc an addition charge of mongoose bite? and would ThunderstompThunderstomp be more effective than Ferocity spec's Spiked CollarSpiked Collar in procing mongoose bite?

As far as I know the mastery effect only procs from auto attacks or claw/bite. None of the pets special attacks will proc it, so you want to use a ferocity pet. A Moth for Battle-Res or a Nether Ray for Bloodlust are still the best choices overall.

Depends on the fight really. Any pet is fine for SV - but since your pet doesn't do much damage compared to your regular abilities, it's better to have it in tenacity with Thunderstomp turned ON. SV is completely different to BM in that it will actually contribute to more procs with Thunderstomp - especially on AoE; each target hit by Thunderstomp has a chance to proc your mastery.

Any other ability outside of Thunderstomp will not affect your proc rate.

Are you sure about that? I didn't know Thunderstomp would proc it but the guides I've read say that Mastery is the worst stat for Survival Hunters, so it wouldn't make a lot of sense to prioritize that. I checked some of the top logs on Goroth and Mistres Sassz'ine, but their damage sources don't have Thunderstomp listed, so it's safe to assume that the best Surv Hunters don't use it and you shouldn't either.

Been that way since launch - it's mostly for AoE that it's apparent on, but with the way SV mastery and proc rates have changed it's probably inconsequential really. Just do whatever you want with your pet - whatever you like the looks / feel of most. It barely makes any difference to your dps as SV so just go with what you like the most.

      Hi and, first of all, thanks for your time. 
      I´m back to WoW after around 3 years, and I´m feeling quite confused yet. My main is a Hunter. I left it during WoD as a BM. Now I´m back, still with WoD expansion, and I feel the class has changed a LOT. No traps, quite a different composition, etc. 
      I´d like some help in order to set my talents and rotations. My intention atm, as lvl 100, is to finish questing Draenor (still quite a bit to do here) and then buy Legion and try to level up before the expansion comes. I like soloing (I guess BM should be my choice, but I´m here to hear your opinions!!) and I´ll try to avoid skipping content. I´m not in a hurry, just want to enjoy the whole lore-and-questing all the way up.
      Thanks again for your help!!!!

      Hello,
      The Sworn is recruiting DPS.  We are a Horde guild on Arthas and our current progression is 4/9 Mythic TOS.  We only raid two nights a week, Tuesday and Wednesday from 9:05 PM until 12:05 AM Eastern.  Currently, our main goal is to push Mythis TOS progression versus clearing farmed content, please keep this in mind if you wish to join us.
      From you, we would expect 100% attendance during your trial period; after that if you cannot make a raid or will be late it is mandatory to keep the raid leader updated.  In order to continue making good progression while raiding only two nights a week, we expect that you know your class inside-out and will research any bosses you are unfamiliar with prior to raids.
       If you are interested, you can either reply to this thread and link your most recent combat logs for review or hit me up on battlenet, Violentnacho, recruiting officer (violentravi#1826.
      Thank you for your consideration
      Xoxo

      According to Azortharion simulations, our best for Antorus will be Qapla/Soul+Dire Frenzy/OWTP , ¿what stats need this build? At this moment, we need Mastery/Haste for Dire Frenzy build and Critical/Haste for OWTP build: therefore, they are mutually exclusive, right?  Or at least I understand that.
      So, ¿what stats?

      Looking for some advice about how to improve my DPS - I should be doing better than this I feel (using stomp build). My guild only raided NH HC and I got to the point where new gear was out-doing the 2pc 895 tier 19 set I had, which is why I'm not using 2pc tier 19 atm. If this was the wrong choice and I'm better dropping my ilevel to go back to it please let me know. I have most BM Leggos so again if I'm using the wrong combo please advise me. I would like to tweak my stats but not sure what gear would do me better than what I have. Any help you can give me would be so much appreciated.
