I wonder what's causing ferocity to show as higher in FD than cunning for some, and the reverse order for others. At the 359 gear level it appears cunning is a few hundred dps higher but as I manually added stats using custom gear, ferocity started to pull ahead. Wild Hunt is a huge dps increase for pets and ferocity has lower uptime at our current gear level.
Didn't even notice it was you posting Neruse, long time no see! However, i'm not quite sure what's causing the differences, but I did notice that swapping from a ferocity to cunning pet drastically increased the stat weight of haste. Not sure if this is bugged, or i'm missing something here. Just double checked again, and now i'm getting a 48.7 dps loss switching from ferocity to cunning.
I would argue that this talent is strong. It allows for extremely high damage for the first 1/5 of a boss fight. I was doing about 24k sustained dps for the first minute of the fight in Baradin's Hold (absolutely zero heroic gear, was wearing 2 green quest pieces and the rest was quest blues and normal 5-man blues).
From 100% to 80% your rotation is still the same except you do not fire arcane shot even if you are focus capped. You still continue to spam cobra shot. By using cooldowns during this first 20%, the damage for me was high enough that it kept me top on the meters for the rest of the fight, even ahead of other raid members who were in mostly heroic gear.
As for glyphs: arcane shot vs serpent sting... considering you do not fire arcane shot for the first 20% of the fight, the damage increase seems very lackluster. I would need to evaluate parses of boss fights and see how often arcane shot is even fired during a 5-min fight.
Careful Aim seems to provide a solid dps increase instead of putting those two points in One with Nature. Also, I find even without using Arcane shot for the first twenty percent of the fight due to Careful Aim, you should still be outputting around 10 AS in an approximately 5 minute fight. This would appear to give AS Glyph the edge over SS Glyph.
