Every Thursday, WoW Insider brings you Scattered Shots for beast mastery, marksmanship and survival hunters. Frostheim of Warcraft Hunters Union uses logic and science (mixed with a few mugs of dwarven stout) to look deep into the hunter class. Mail your hunter questions to Frostheim.

Beast mastery hunters suffered on the DPS charts for the majority of Wrath of the Lich King. By just about any measure, hunters were giving up a lot of DPS by playing the BM spec — around 20% behind the leading hunter spec at best, one of the worst three specs in the game in Wrath. That’s a heck of a lot of DPS loss for a raid leader to swallow.

This is not the case any longer. Take heed, raid leaders: BM is a viable hunter raiding spec!

I get a lot of emails from poor BM hunters whose raid leaders tell them that their beloved spec does far too little DPS to raid, without even giving the BM hunter a chance to prove them wrong. A lot of this is leftover knowledge from Wrath, when hunters took a huge DPS hit by speccing BM. I imagine this comes from raid leaders’ sporting bell-bottoms and giant, poofy ’80s hair, because these people are woefully out of date.

Join me after the cut as we take a look at the numbers and see where BM’s DPS stands and why we can’t trust the top 100 parses in this case. (Hint: It’s math that tells us not to trust it.)Continue reading Scattered Shots: Yes, beast mastery can raidFiled under: Hunter, (Hunter) Scattered ShotsScattered Shots: Yes, beast mastery can raid originally appeared on WoW Insider on Thu, 04 Aug 2011 14:00:00 EST.
