MM Hunters: Dire Beast or Thrill of the Hunt?

Hunter
In PvE, which skill would be better? I currently use Dire Beast, which was recommended by Hunters' Union , but I saw another guide recommend Thrill of the Hunt to help make up for lost DPS with Steady Shot and AoE bursts.

Steady Shot


Bad news, bro...

I know... but I'm a rather stubborn cow and refuse BM. I've been toying with going SV but I'd like to stick with MM until 90 to see if that makes a difference with the next talent available and when I can finally reforge my gear to be worth a darn.

MM does better in PVE with focus on demand like direbeast or even fervor. Thrill of the hunt is nice for AOE, but using it on single target makes you miss out on steady shots for the haste and on MMM stacks.


Makes sense. Didn't think about losing SS stacks. I mentioned in another thread that I have a BM friend that is about the same ilvl as myself. She does awesome AoE damage in instances...usually twice as much as myself, but in single targeting and boss fights I usually beat her out by a significant portion. So like I said above, I may just see how something like Barrage may help out my DPS in AoE groups...
Ah you know what, I'm mistaken. She IS SV hunter, not BM. Sorry.
