This post incorporates publicly available leaked material from the Cataclysm Alpha. If that bothers you, please stop reading now.

A new version of the Alpha was pushed on 17 May with an updated feral tree, and information about the changes has already leaked. Allison’s latest Shifting Perspectives has covered some of the changes already, but here’s my take.

Tier 1:

Sharpened Claws: Increases the damage caused by your Claw, Rake, Mangle (Cat), Mangle (Bear), and Maul abilities by 10%/20%. (Previously Tier 3: increases your critical strike chance by 2%/4%/6%.) Renamed version of Savage Fury, a Tier 2 talent with the same description.

Ferocity: Unchanged.

Feral Aggression: Unchanged.

Tier 2:

Savage Fury: Removed. (Moved to Tier 1, renamed Sharpened Claws.)

Thick Hide: Removed. (Previously increased your Armor contribution from cloth and leather items by 4%/7%/10%.)

Feral Instinct: Unchanged.

Shredding Attacks: Reduces the energy cost of your Shred ability by 5/10 and the cost of your Lacerate by 1/2. (Previously Tier 4: Reduces the energy cost of your Shred ability by 9/18 and the rage cost of your Lacerate ability by 1/2.)

Endless Carnage[NYI]: Increases the duration of your Rake by 3/6 sec and your Savage Roar by 4/8 sec. (New talent.)

Tier 3:

Feral Swiftness: Unchanged.

Predatory Instincts: Moved here from Tier 8, unchanged otherwise.

Feral Charge: Moved here from Tier 5, unchanged otherwise.

Improved Feral Charge[NYI]: Increases the damage done by your next 3 attacks by 5/10% in Bear Form after you use Feral Charge (Bear), and Ravage will temporarily not require stealth for 3/6 sec after you use Feral Charge (Cat). (New talent.)

Tier 4:

Nurturing Instinct: Moved here from Tier 5, unchanged otherwise.

Predatory Strikes: Attack power boost removed. Finishing moves retain their 7%/13%/20% chance per combo point to proc an instant Nature spell. (Previously: Increases your melee attack power in Cat, Bear and Dire Bear Forms by 50%/100%/150% of your level and 7%/13%/20% of any attack power on your equipped weapon.)

Primal Fury: Unchanged.

Primal Precision: Removed. (Previously: Increases your expertise by 5/10, and you are refunded 40%/80% of the energy cost of a finishing move if it fails to land.)

Tier 5:

Brutal Impact: Unchanged.

Heart of the Wild: Moved here from Tier 6, unchanged otherwise.

Survival Instincts: Moved here from Tier 3, unchanged otherwise.

Tier 6:

Survival of the Fittest: Unchanged.

Natural Reaction: Removed.

Tier 7:

King of the Jungle: Moved here from Tier 9, unchanged otherwise.

Leader of the Pack: Unchanged.

Improved Leader of the Pack: Unchanged.

Primal Tenacity: Reduces the duration of fear effects by 10%/20%/30% and reduces all damage taken while stunned by 5%/10%/15% while in Cat Form. (Previously reduced damage taken while stunned by 10%/20%/30%.)

Tier 8:

Protector of the Pack: Unchanged.

Infected Wounds: Your Shred, Maul, and Mangle attacks cause an Infected Wound in the target. The Infected Wound reduces the movement speed of the target by 25%/50% and the attack speed by 10%/20%. Lasts 12 sec. (Previously reduced movement speed by 16%/34%/50% and attack speed by 7%/14%/20%.)

Tier 9:

Primal Madness[NYI]: Tiger’s Fury and Beserk also increases your maximum energy by 10/20 during its duration, and your Enrage and Berserk abilities instantly generates 6/12 rage. (New talent.)

Mangle: Unchanged.

Improved Mangle: Unchanged.

Tier 10:

Nom Nom Nom[NYI]: When you Ferocious Bite a target at or below 25%, you have a 50/100% chance to instantly refresh the duration of your Rip on the target. (New talent.)

Rend and Tear: Unchanged.

Pulverize: 15 rage. Instant. Melee Range. Requires Dire Bear Form.  Deals 252 bleed damage for each of your Lacerate applications on the target, and increases your total attack power by 2% for each Lacerate stack consumed. Lasts 10 sec.

Tier 11:

Berserk: Unchanged.

Misc info: Shred base energycost is now 50 (talented 40.) Maul base rage cost is 10 (talented 5), consumes an extra 5 rage for each 20 rage you have. (So, 1-20 rage, Maul costs 5, 21-40, Maul costs 10, etc.)

Definitely some interesting new talents  here. As Blizzard has previously stated, they like testing new talents via set bonuses, and apparently all our good ones made it in. :) Endless Carnage is a mashup of our Tier 8 4P and our Tier 9 2P, but better. I wouldn’t be surprised to see either the talent or Rake nerfed…upping a 9s DoT to 15s is pretty strong for a Tier 2 talent. Imp. Feral Charge is pretty interesting, but I see it as mostly a leveling/burst talent more than anything else. Ravage will hit harder than Shred, certainly, but not by enough to warrant major rotational changes.  I’d have to look to figure out its DPE…I haven’t used it in ages.

Primal Madness is pretty meh. Good ferals never energy cap to begin with, so having a higher top-end isn’t a big deal (though it makes using TF/Berserk easier, sure). Finally, Nom Nom Nom (best name ever) is huge. Rolling Rips and constant FBs! Sweet! (Of course, this means our regular damage will get a nerf to compensate. Bleh.)

Have some Balance/Resto info as well, but I’ll leave that for now. One tidbit: Innervate is now based on the caster’s max mana pool, not base. Goodbye feral Innervates. :(

  21. Thanks for your post. I’d like to comment that the cost of car insurance differs a lot from one scheme to another, for the reason that there are so many different facets which give rise to the overall cost. By way of example, the model and make of the auto will have a tremendous bearing on the purchase price. A reliable aged family vehicle will have a more economical premium than a flashy expensive car.

  22. Thanks for your publication. What I want to say is that when you are evaluating a good on the web electronics go shopping, look for a web site with complete information on important factors such as the security statement, basic safety details, payment procedures, as well as other terms in addition to policies. Generally take time to investigate the help as well as FAQ areas to get a far better idea of how the shop is effective, what they are capable of doing for you, and just how you can maximize the features.

  23. I have learned some new things through your blog. One other thing I’d like to say is that often newer laptop or computer operating systems tend to allow more memory to use, but they as well demand more memory space simply to perform. If an individual’s computer can’t handle far more memory plus the newest software package requires that storage increase, it usually is the time to shop for a new Personal computer. Thanks

  25. Thanks for your publiction. Another factor is that to be a photographer entails not only trouble in taking award-winning photographs but also hardships in getting the best camera suited to your needs and most especially struggles in maintaining the grade of your camera. That is very correct and visible for those photography fans that are in to capturing the actual nature’s engaging scenes — the mountains, the actual forests, the wild or even the seas. Going to these exciting places undoubtedly requires a camera that can live up to the wild’s hard conditions.

  26. Interesting article. It is quite unfortunate that over the last years, the travel industry has already been able to to tackle terrorism, SARS, tsunamis, bird flu virus, swine flu, as well as the first ever entire global economic collapse. Through all this the industry has really proven to be powerful, resilient along with dynamic, locating new solutions to deal with misfortune. There are constantly fresh challenges and opportunity to which the industry must yet again adapt and answer.

  30. Thanks for helping me to attain new tips about pc’s. I also possess the belief that certain of the best ways to keep your laptop computer in leading condition is by using a hard plastic case, or shell, that suits over the top of your computer. These kinds of protective gear tend to be model distinct since they are made to fit perfectly over the natural casing. You can buy them directly from the vendor, or through third party places if they are designed for your notebook computer, however not all laptop could have a spend on the market. Once more, thanks for your guidelines.

  44. I have observed that over the course of constructing a relationship with real estate entrepreneurs, you’ll be able to come to understand that, in each and every real estate contract, a payment is paid. Finally, FSBO sellers tend not to “save” the commission rate. Rather, they fight to win the commission by simply doing a good agent’s job. In doing this, they spend their money plus time to conduct, as best they could, the responsibilities of an realtor. Those tasks include revealing the home by marketing, showing the home to prospective buyers, constructing a sense of buyer urgency in order to trigger an offer, booking home inspections, controlling qualification investigations with the bank, supervising fixes, and assisting the closing.
