The initial idea was to replace the stances with shouts and drop wilderness survival for the more offensive oriented beastmastery. Between fresh reinforcement, fortifying bond and we heal as one this build easily maintains 25 stacks of might and can hit like a truck. Even the axe autos can do up to 3k crits.
On the other side your only source of stab is the elite and the 2 stunbreaks are sometimes not enough. If you get CC locked with condi pressure you won't be able to react. I've considered using dolyak stance + leader of the pact for the damage reduction and additional stability. You do lose out condi clear and a source of protection though.
What's your opinion about this build? It's been fun playing it in the unranked but I still feel the boonbeast is the way to go, even after the nerfs to stances.
