Need some tips on BM hunters.

you can switch between the shadow step for duels and prep for arena.
unless you're asking for advice in arena against BM Hunters, i figured you were talking more about a 1v1/duel though.
my vanish works the great majority of the time for me, i can only think of one or two instances where the pet had followed me through vanish. if you can't vanish the stampede then you have to blow CR/feint/ try to FOK and sprint away. however, i feel vanish is a much better option because you save your defensive CD's and mitigate all the damage. ( even through our defensive CD's stampede + hunter will do a lot of damage).
as combat you still want to set up kidney shot, which will be even longer due to relentless strikes. instead of sdance you just use AR+SB.
spree is pretty unreliable against hunters, but it will still help too...as long as it doesn't destroy your positioning.
If you're going for a kill and not just trying to force CD/trinkets, your best bet is going to be communicating with your team to set up chain CC and openers; trying to kill a skilled hunter all by yourself is a lesson in frustration, and sometimes futility.
I'm not sure what your comp is, but calling out things like "my kidney" will let your mage know to hold off on deep/frost nova until it's done. Don't bother going for a kill until you've forced some of their major cooldowns. Usually this is done by CCing the healer and putting pressure on them, forcing them to use a trinket and/or deterrence, master's call, readiness, etc. Once he's out of defensive CDs, setup CC on the healer again and go for the kill--communicate what you're doing to do so that your team can stun/slow without overlapping/clipping each other's abilities.

^ I hate trying to fight Bm hunters.. I can't vanish or nothing on them. xD Then readiness Is the most OP thing. I've seen a BM full malev and everything one shot me.
I can do it as assassin tho because of the stupid damage and no positional requirement.
(its !@#$ing hard as sub due to having to be behind him which is tough because they'll bm out of everything...)
