Release candidate build!

Talents

  • Dream of Cenarius: Nourish, Healing Touch, and Regrowth increase the damage done by your next 2 Moonfire or Sunfire casts by 65% (was 50%) or by your next 2 melee abilities by 25% (was 50%).

Balance

  • Sunfire damage increased by 10%.

Well, kiss that top ranking for Feral in Simulationcraft goodbye. I don’t know actual numbers yet, but my feeling is that DoC will remain the top DPS talent for Feral, but by a much closer margin.  Balance, meanwhile, should climb out of the cellar a bit, though I’m not as tuned in to where they were on DoC so I can’t say for sure if that’ll remain tops for them.

  1. Will this mark the first time that a single talent will decide what to reforge for? As I understand, taking DoC (even lower valued as now) will mean you need to go for mastery (after hit/exp), while the other two might mean a more balanced approach (in the crit-haste-mastery trio)?

  2. It would be good if DoC got balanced so close to the other two that it didn’t matter which you chose. Which was the design rationale of the talent revamp in the first place: Choose how you want to play, pick options you like.

  3. Be nice if, for once, an insanely hard rotation left us simming top dps but they never leave us there…as usual thats reserved for mages, warriors, rogues :-)

  4. A feral on top of a meter! Blizzard heard this and shit their collective pants. I guess mages/hunters need to be topping meters with idiot proof rotations while the challenging “rotations” yield less with perfect play.
