Would still like some control over Hati, only way I can get it to stop attacking anything is if I unequip my weapon.

Without taking Chimaera Shot, I find some areas of downtime in my rotation if I get unlucky with Wild Call, which I don't like (feels sluggish and boring)

Is Bestial Wrath meant to make you, your pet and Hati translucent and slightly red or is that broken?

Hati should (may still have bugs) follow all commands you give your pet.

Beast Mastery is a Focus-based spec, so should not be GCD-locked. Talent choices allow you to customize how high your GCD utilization is.

Bestial Wrath making you partially transparent is a bug.

Sorry? Can you elaborate on this a bit?
Why would a focus based spec not be GCD locking? We've historically been the poster boy class for filled GCDs and high APM workflow, so I'm assuming there's a different thought process regarding what involves being GCD capped (like cast times).

edit; to clarify here, there's nothing wrong with a hunter spec being designed around having downtime, but I don't think "because you use focus" is the reason.

It's a spec that uses Focus as its primary resource, and doesn't have a spammable filler, nor any form of variable Focus consumption. If it were GCD-locked, Focus would be pointless.
