Here are some of my initial findings and thoughts on Patch 3.2 as a Hunter.
Being able to lay 3 traps at one time is actually pretty nice whenever I have time to setup before a fight. However, I found it was very difficult finding a great keybind system that worked well when in the middle of a fight. With a suggestion from a friend I decided to use a castsequence macro for my traps and I have found it much easier to lay 3 traps, especially in combat.
/castsequence Frost Trap, Snake Trap, Explosive Trap
This is the macro that I now use which I can spam and get my traps down easily with one button, while still prioritizing Frost Trap then Snake Trap and finally Explosive Trap.
360 Deterrence is a godsend, I never have to worry about facing the target while using Deterrence and can run around psychotically while laying traps to my hearts content.
I haven't been able to test the Roar of Sacrifice change much but I'm hearing some abilities / spells seem to be able to crit through it, which seems stupid.
Pets now receive 40% of the Hunter's resilience, but I haven't noticed my pets lasting extra long under fire, they are still super fragile when focused.
The pets I currently use in PvP are my trusty Ferocity Wasp and my lovely Cunning Chimaera. I highly recommend owning both pets if you love PvP'ing with your Hunter.
Also, if you have are leveling a lowbie Hunter like me because you can't get enough of Hunters, then make sure you pick up the new Heirloom chests available.
