Is it acceptable as a RL (me) to force hunters to use Scorpid Sting??

I tried "suggesting" it, and got a lot of blowback over lower DPS. They claim it lowers them so much that their suck DPS would not justify a spot in the raid.

Not knowing a damn thing about hunters....I don't know if this is true.

I believe that it depends on the hunter spec. Marksman dps is heavily reliant upon Chimera Shot which is based on what sting they currently have active. The Chimera Shot proc for Scorpid Sting is disarm, for Serpent, it's 40% of Serpent Sting as instant damage. I believe that Survival spec (or BM, if anyone still raids as BM) will lose only the raw dps provided by the Serpent Sting DoT.

I'd think BM loses more than survival, because they would glyph for Steady Shot (10% increased damage when serpent sting is active), and I guess it's their main filler.

If spec'd into it a Survival hunter will also lose 3% damage on all attacks from not having serpent sting up if I remember correctly.
