    Beast Mastery Hunters bring a damage percentage increase to the entire raid with
    Ferocious Inspiration
    . They can also bring some very helpful debuffs depending on what pet they are using. They can bring armor reduction with
    Acid Spit
    and bleed damage taken with
    Stampede
    . All Hunters also have
    Scorpid Sting
    which reduces the target's chance to hit.
