Whats up with all the QQ about stampede, isnt it pretty much an added 25% do your pet damage for 20 sec? 5 * 25%?( reading the tooltip). Sounds like a pretty lame damage buff. Why is the CD so big and so much qq then?
Or am I missing something ?
It increases the damage of your pet (Pets) to 200%, as your primary pet still does 100% damage plus the other four doing 25% each, but outside of BM thats not the reason its valuable.
The real reason its useful is because assuming your willing to optimize your pet loadout, your other four pets should bring a myriad of buffs and debuffs that can add a substantial amount of group damag during that window and some even carry over quite a bit longer than 20 seconds themselves, such as roar of courage or ferocious howl. This is alot more signifigant in 5 mans where the chances of every group buff and debuff being covered are next to nothing, and varies dramatically based on the 5 pets you bring and who your grouped with, for example I run with a cat, wolf, boar, wind serpent and hyena so during stampede I can provide 10% melee haste, crit, magic vulnerability, physical vulnerability and mastery.
And no kill command will not work with the stampede pets. They use the abilities you had set to auto cast, so the basic, growl and the family skill.
On that note don't forget to turn growl of on all 5 of your pets before using it in dungeons so they wont be taunting !@#$ like crazy when you use it, very annoying for the tank when hunters open up with a an army of aggro crazy vermin.
