Level 90 talent for hunter, glaive toss, barrage, or power shot?

glaive toss seems kinda useless to me as my hunter alt is pve only and GT seems very pvp centric. power shot does huge crits but requires a charge up that can slow dps briefly, barrage is channeled but cool.

icy when it comes to those talents usually just says "this works for this, this works for that, choose whichever you think fits" because it's so often a crapshoot. i don't want to know what they think, i wanna know what the hunters of the board think based on their personal experience.

Powershot is just a glorified Aimed shot, I dislike glaive toss. I've fallen in love with barrage coupled with rapid fire here recently.

the cast time of powershot kinda turns me off. that's a good 3 second stop in dps for a crit that likely is less than the total damage you'd do during the cast time.

If you want to raid or do dungeons, I recommend against powershot. The knock back can be problematic, even seen certain raid bosses get reset because of it.

Unless you know your range and fire angles pretty well, barrage can screw you as well. It will fire at anything in range in that angle, so you can easily shoot through or past your targets and into unpulled mobs if you aren't careful. DPS math aside I think most people recommend GT because it's safer.

for me it was also between glaive toss and barrage. GT provide slightly higher dps i read, but i love how barrage looks. and power shot is meh right now, the cast time is a turn off and i believe that blizzard is gonna change it in 5.2 i read. Right now i just use barrage for my MM spec cause it feels more marksman like (although power shot felt the best fit for MM) and GT for my SV spec cause it seems to feel more like a SV move.

Glaive Toss is the only decent one of the three.
