    If I recall correctly most folk who ran Hunters recommend pets with screech (also an AoE effect) both early and at 50+ over Apes with ThunderStomp. I think you can find pets with Screech as low as 8th level and I think they were considered superior in large part due to their screech being spammable (only limited by focus) while thunderstomp has a 1 minute cooldown.

    Best of luck to you with either team (both teams)... If you are having fun and/or trying/learning new things you are doing it right!
    Adding a healer to the team has made a world of difference for the hunters, i now can do mobs 9 levels above myself without any mana or aggro issues, this blows casters out the water for pve so for leveling this works, dungeons i can sweeping through them without any stressing with pets on round-robin taunts etc, the hunter group is fun but i have problems with close encounters etc, so they are powerful but not perfect where the druids can do everything just more balanced.

    The thunder stomps and screech owls are a good consideration for later, for now wolfs share melee damage bonuses that compliments them getting extra damage off, not much but enough when theres 4 of them biting.

    I will get them to 60 and then go back to druids and have them ready for 60 awell, i think druids need more gear and time to make them a topper, they wony do damage like other dps but they have very good healing on the go, and out of all the casters its decent because they can also use forms unlike priest etcs

    I will see how things develope!

    In PvE I switch to feral gear and cycle between druids to regen mana. 1 Bear, 3 cats, 1 resto. Heal until the resto is around 50% mana then swap to cat form and switch to one of the other cat windows and start healing with that. If you get good at juggling your 5 mana bars you pretty much have unlimited mana even without innervate. To facilitate this style I've focused on my own "BiS" list rather than the lists you might see on wowhead. I've gathered a bunch of gear with mixed stats (int/spi/agi/stam) so my regen is decent while still having a decent amount of AP. Then you can just macro your weapon swap to match the form you're using. There are a bunch of ways to play druids but that's how I do it.

    I switch to caster gear for PvP and just try to burst people down with wrath or moonfire spam. You will never be able to take on large groups like mages can but I've killed other 5man parties outside dungeons and it's fun for picking off PvP flagged people in enemy cities or dueling outside Org. You can burst pretty hard out of stealth.

    If you expect druids to be as strong as mages you'll be disappointed but I still find them fun. I play mine as alliance on a server that is heavily horde favored so it's pretty fun being able to stealth around and pick people off when 80% of the server is horde.
    This is where i have leaned towards for druids for the pve part, its works and its solid, damage as you say is lack luster but the rest of the class and abilities at hand shine really well, this is what i think ultimately will make me lean always more towards druids and they can also be respec for different roles which is a win for everyone!

    thanks for the info

    Back to druids it would appear, IWT facing target issues forces me to regroup with the druids and avoid shaman due just being less fun!

    So i will revise my team and resume druids and focus on them more as i found them more fun than shaman.

    4x feral/balance, with 1 resto druid/shaman.

    Do you have IWT then W in an action target group just for your hunters? I use the opposite (W then IWT) for my druids to prevent them from overshooting mobs when chasing them down and running in random directions.

    The moonglow/NS spec, along with 1 bear + 3 cat + healer swap sounds like a great strategy. Right now I have all 4 switch from cat form to heal the tank, but it halts DPS for ~4 seconds and you can still run into mana issues even with natural shapeshifter talented.

    The issues i had were close encounters in places like keeps where i needed to face mobs etc, less of a issue as a druid ofc!

    TAG wont work for hunters, its just a lost cause but i have replaced them with warlocks for now and will run the druids along side.

    I will experiement with different talent builds but defensive with druids best offensive i feel.
