not waiting on a 3.5 sec cast time.
I see someone didn't read the patch notes. If you're leaveling I'd go with Knuckels' spec, but when you hit 70 and raid and/or pvp there'd be a few things I'd change.
P.S.Heya bro. I like the way you are set up, but a few things you should know about the points you put into marksmen, and the points you didn't put into BM. If you are going for a BM hunter, well serpents swiftness is a must have, along with animal handler because it increases your pets chance to hit. Drop aimed shot and improved arcane shot, they don't help much in places like Arena when you gotta' be dealing out the damage fast, not waiting on a 3.5 sec cast time. Ferocious Inspiration is good to have in PvP a much needed damage boost. I would drop path finding and bestial swiftness, and jump over to the survival talent tree, putting 3 points into hawk eye (increased range) and put any left over talent points into Humanoid Slayer.
Hope that helped.
i have to argue on some of those points animal handler is a waste of points the increase to pet hit is not worth it. and aimed shots and mortal shots are a must have becasue of 2.3. serpents swiftness is a must have thoughhttp://www.wowhead.com/?talent=cEbM0xgRVzVoVVbRV
thats a very good all around spec whilehttp://www.wowhead.com/?talent=cZE0VoVzGestchhot
is a good arena spec
Don't listen to this guy. Those specs are horrible.

Try my spec (http://www.wowhead.com/?talent=cVbhzggRVuVoZrhhMdc
It has all the good BM talents for efficient solo'ing, and the little 18 point foray into Survival gives you 3% Hit Rating, great for raiding and will help you hit the Hit cap quicker.

Your first one skips Thick Hide, FI, and Imp Mend Pet for the sucktacular spirit bond and IAotH? IAotH is good for endgame DPS, but it's really not a big help leveling, since you often waste the proc moving targets.
As well, your second spec takes combat expertise, which is a huge waste of points. If you have 1000 agi, those 2 points will only take you to 1020. If you have a much more likely 400 agi, your two points will get you an entire 8 agi. And if you've got 200 int, it'll bump you up to 212. There are better uses for the points, such as Clever Traps for extra Frost duration, or extra snakes.
This is what I recommend: http://www.wowhead.com/?talent=cVbhzgxRVuVoVVbRV
Stick with the BM skills till you finish the tree. At first, you may want to drop Focused Fire in favor of Imp Rez, since 2% of low level DPS is pretty crappy, and you don't have Kill Command.
Spirit Bond isn't really worth it. If you've got 10k health, you're only going to get 200 every 10 seconds, and that's likely not going to be enough to save you. Since 5/5 Mortal shots limits you to a strict 41pts in BM, you need to spend the points better.
