Hunter wep speed effecting overall DPS no longer applicable postpatch?

BTW his gear was all the blue PvP gear and I have a mix of ZG/tier 1/tier 0 gear on me so out of interest I was going to spend some honour on either the gun or the crossbow but after what he told me I thought I get the Bow instead?
Do you guys have anything to say that may be useful to me in my decision?

That being said, weapon speed still impacts hunter damage just as it did before the patch - however, Aimed Shot is no longer a cycled attack, so precise weapon speeds are less important for maintaining optimal shot cycles. Arcane Shot is not a weapon damage based attack, so it isn't impacted at all.

The broken hunter thread actually did have quite a long investigation into what was happening to the GCD with haste effects. I think they decided that the GCD on steady was affected by haste, not sure about others. Best check the thread though, can't say I remember much about it.
If anything I think the universal cooldown will be one of our biggest limiters, you simply cannot fire faster than 1.5s and make use of steady shot consistently. That's a decent question I suppose and one I haven't seen asked before. Is the universal cooldown ever lowered by haste effects like quiver, quickshots, and rapid fire? Would go a long way to making those abilities more steady friendly.
