Patch 5.4 Beast Mastery Hunter PvP and PVE Rotation / Macro / Keybinds

A general BM Hunter Rotation will look like this :

Hunters Mark – Serpent Sting – Focus Fire- Kill Shot – Kill Command – Glaive Toss – Arcane Shot – Cobra Shot

PvP is a whole other ballgame and to boost your performance you need to just learn the game and / or get some good addons like the ones above
