Its not really a personal problem for pvp tho, pvp hunters only run mortal strike pets, usually that are cunning, they have restricted options and have had restrictions for quite a few expansions even before legion.
For pve it was worse, by legion you either had a brez pet or a lust pet, for none bm hunter this was literally one family each.
Also it should be noted that unlike when pet specs where changeable dps, isn’t impacted, nor is armor.
Numerically those who are pve focused got a lot more options, while those who are pve focused stayed about the same
Tbh the only thing i’d wish they’d move is the leech to a hunter talent. The leech healing is really strong for sv and mm to the point where it does more passively than exhilaration, i feel if it wasn’t for that, the 3 specializations would feel more balanced. For me, in the content i run specifically, not having the leech is a noticeable difference and hunters as a whole don’t have a lot of defensives to work with.
