Do you think it's worth the loss of the resilience from the missing PvP gear? For those that aren't familiar with the T13 2pc set bonus, you get double focus back from Steady Shot or Cobra Shot. Quite a few Hunters complain of running out of focus in PvP and having to spam Steady or Cobra to regen. I myself rarely have focus issues (MM) and when I am BM I almost never have focus issues. I can't speak from an arena stand point though, I only do battlegrounds. Just wondering people's thoughts.
I considered the same thing, but find that (like you) I rarely have a focus issue. As I only PvP BM, I was thinking maybe it would work better for MM, but I really don't know. I can tell you that in arena rarely is there time to wait for cobra shot to fire off. Especially when there are so many other non or min focus things you can be doing, such as, scare beast, ice trapping/scatter shotting/intimidating a healer, flareing/snake trapping a rogue, or even mitigating damage with detterence or leaping out of melee range.
In BG, I do tend to get more of a chance to fire cobras, but it seems one cobra gives me enough juice to fire off a nice round of arcane shots, which are cheap with Efficiency talents. And again, usually by then someone hates you and you are trapping, disengaging, scatter shotting in between shooting them full of holes.
Conclusion: The 2 pieces would obviously be a help, but imho, not enough to justify losing so much resilience for a class that has very little in the way of healing and damage mitigation.

I haven't had much luck with either of these two items or I would probably be looking at doing the same thing. Crossing my fingers and hoping tomorrow night is my lucky night for either or both.
