I have seen several posts from other Druid bloggers about the feedback they gave on this thread.  I figured I would throw my own 2 cents in.

  • What type of content academic help do you focus on? [PvE/PvP/Both]
    • PVE
  • If PvE, what type of PvE? [Heroics/Raids/Other]
    • 25 man heroic raiding
  • What are your biggest quality-of-life issues?
    • The inability to change targets quickly/efficiently.

        When Ferals have to quickly change targets we are often energy starved with lots of combo points sitting on the pervious target.  While we can use SR before we begin building points on the new target it is very expensive (25 energy) and we may have just refreshed it.  This leaves us in a hole when starting on the new target and will make our long ramp up even longer.

    • Feral Faire Fire is on the spell hit table still.  It kind of takes the flow away when being melee hit capped during our opening ramp up and I have 2 FFF misses in a row.  This just steals GCD’s when they are needed most.
    • The inability to switch between AOE and Single Target rotations.  Because Swipe is so expensive (45 energy) just 2 swings will deplete a full energy bar.  Don’t get me wrong I don’t think swipe needs a buff, it’s just fine.  I would just like to see the damage and energy scaled down a bit so I have a little more freedom to choose between the rotations given sudden encounter changes.
    • Skull bash costs too much energy.  Pooling 25 energy lowers my dps output considerably while all other melee classes can use theirs for free or with considerably less resources.
    • Positional requirement.  There were some changes to the Fixed location bosses to widen the degrees that we could shred in.  While this was nice, the benefit is completely negated any time the bosses moves or targets someone other than a tank for an ability.  Mangle isn’t a good back up ability as it cannot extend Rip and does considerably less damage.
  • What makes playing your class more fun?
    • I love the flexibility that Feral DPS gives.  I have been able to do several jobs including off tanking and a few Hero bear moments.
    • Awesome mobility.  I am able to get places faster, help others get there faster and I very decent gap closer.
  • What makes playing your class less fun?
    • It sometimes feels like our mastery is at odds with the rest of our tool box.  With several nerfs to bleeds and buffs to direct damage there sometimes feels like a disconnect between physical damage tools and bleed damage tools (ie mastery)
    • See quality of life issues
  • How do you feel about your “rotation”? (Rotation is the accepted order in which abilities are used to maximum efficiency.)
    • I like the rotation.  It is complex and enjoyable to maintain as well as to tweak for different situations.
  • What’s on your wish list for your class?
    • I had an idea about making use of combo points before a target switch.  Rogues have Redirect on a 1 minute cooldown to let them move combo points to a new target.  What if Ferals could activate an ability that would consume all the current combo points on the target, but would proc the Stampede buff.  A free ravage on a new target to give a little short term burst and get quick combo points up on the new target.  Damage for the Ravage could scale based on how many combo points were consumed.  This ability can only be used on life targets.
    • Move FFF off the spell hit cap.
    • Modify Brutal Impact to also lower the energy cost of Skull Bash.
    • Allow Mangle to extend Rip if attacking from the front.
    • Reduce the damage and energy cost of swipe proportionally.
  • What spells do you use the least?
    • Claw

  5. I have noticed that of all different types of insurance, medical health insurance is the most debatable because of the issue between the insurance company’s need to remain afloat and the client’s need to have insurance coverage. Insurance companies’ profits on health and fitness plans are very low, consequently some corporations struggle to make money. Thanks for the thoughts you reveal through your blog.

  18. I have observed that of all kinds of insurance, health insurance coverage is the most debatable because of the clash between the insurance plan company’s duty to remain profitable and the buyer’s need to have insurance. Insurance companies’ income on health plans are certainly low, thus some businesses struggle to make money. Thanks for the concepts you share through this web site.

  19. I have been exploring for a little for any high-quality articles or weblog posts on this kind of area . Exploring in Yahoo I finally stumbled upon this website.

  22. My husband and i were quite contented when Louis could round up his researching via the precious recommendations he got in your weblog. It is now and again perplexing to simply possibly be giving freely techniques which usually most people might have been making money from. And now we do know we have got you to appreciate for this. All the illustrations you have made, the simple website navigation, the relationships you will give support to engender – it’s got everything astounding, and it’s making our son and the family do think this situation is amusing, and that is incredibly mandatory. Many thanks for the whole lot!

  23. Thanks for this excellent article. One more thing to mention is that the majority of digital cameras can come equipped with the zoom lens that allows more or less of any scene to be included by ‘zooming’ in and out. These kinds of changes in concentration length are reflected while in the viewfinder and on substantial display screen right at the back of the actual camera.

  24. Great post made here. One thing I’d like to say is most professional domains consider the Bachelor’s Degree as the entry level standard for an online degree. When Associate Degrees are a great way to begin, completing your own Bachelors uncovers many good opportunities to various jobs, there are numerous internet Bachelor Diploma Programs available from institutions like The University of Phoenix, Intercontinental University Online and Kaplan. Another thing is that many brick and mortar institutions make available Online editions of their qualifications but normally for a greatly higher price than the providers that specialize in online diploma programs.
