Boss timer mods take the guess work out of preplanning. Most of the time if a boss is going to perform a move that's going to require you to move, there's a timer associated with that move.
Hunters are in an extremely sad state in PvP. So sad that I truly believe that Hunters are broken in PvP. But having Fox relegated to a "PvP only" aspect may not be such a bad idea. Blizzard could tweak Fox in a way that would make it so that it would be the default aspect to use in PvP. Aspect twisting isn't good in PvE and it's not good in PvP.
What's the point of aspects if one is for PvE and one is for PvP? There's no interesting dynamic then; no choice or tension. They might as well just give hunters some AP and steady on the move and scrap aspects entirely.
Top hunters who knew how to PvP/Raid will be very familiar with Aspect Dancing and the new implementation of fox will guarantee that not only will a hunter NEVER miss an auto shot, but will also now NEVER EVER miss a cobra/steady which wasn't previously possible.
If there's a mechanic where you have to move for more than .5 secs when you have no focus to use an instant cast (yes there are) losing the 1k or so AP on AotH will be worth it. Stutter stepping is a hunter 101 tactic to allow you to move and never miss an auto shot in pvp or pve. Doing this will cause you to lose steadies/cobra. If you keep hawk up, you'll have roughly 600-1k extra damage on each auto shot. If you Aspect Dance for those 1-3 seconds (since it's off the GCD) you will lose 600-1k damage on that auto shot but be able to put a 10k cobra shot in its place, maybe more.
This is extra DPS alone while not even factoring in any procs, buffs, or utilities caused by these casted abilities on the move (only made possible with fox) like MMM, or Cobras extension of SS.
Fox will have an important role in any raiding hunters arsenal who knows how to properly keybind and aspect dance. It will be a part of hunter micro that will allow people to tell the difference from a hunter with a brain and one without. It will be used.
