Soulbeast merges us with our pet and it does a lot of damage. Great. We finally have our petless ranger, and an amazing DPS spec. However, for our next elite spec, I'd like to see focus given again back to the pet, since that IS our class mechanic!
If Druid is our Heal spec, and Soulbeast is our DPS spec, perhaps elite spec #3 can be our bulky CC spec with frontline support? Kinda like what Scrapper is to Engineer right now.
Maybe they can bring back a mechanic from the beta, where the elite spec uses two pets at once in order to overwhelm the opponent?
They could even give Ranger hammer and call it... wait for it... Bunny Thumper!
