Brutish seals is a really strong trait, I advise it over steady focus. Your wasting signet of the hunt at the start. Fire sigils are stronger than air sigils. warrior runes are very subpar on this build.

I used to take Brutish seals but its problem is inconsistency in damage augmentation and the lower CD aren't a must alone so I would even consider Moment of Clarity over it. Signet of the Hunt is primordial to boost the Cripling Leep of your pets, combined with Hilt Bash it does a ton of damage. Plus it will reload for the next time you'll have to move from point to point.

the problem is, you can get much more damage out of it if you time a pet swap and your maul.

signet of stone should also not be part of the normal rotation, you save it for select moments where you are under pressure.
