The holidays are over and I’m back at it. Did you get anything you liked under the tree/in the stocking/other typical place?

Thrash-a-doodle-doo

Stenhaldi brought up the possibility of inserting bear abilities into the feral DPS rotation; specifically, bear Thrash (which is completely separate from cat Thrash) and Maul. After much wailing and gnashing of teeth (Most of SimCs’ bugs have been squashed for DPS specs, less so for others) two simulations have shown bearThrash  to be a 10-15% DPS gain for mass AoE situations. (“Mass” is still under discussion, but it’s definitely 8+ targets, and likely 6+. Below that, tab-raking is better.)

Implementing it is pretty common-sense. You don’t want to screw up cat Thrash or your energy regen, so you simply go Bear->Thrash/Maul->Cat when the following conditions are true:

1. Will not max energy before returning to Cat Form (so sub-50 energy)
2. Bear Thrash is down or almost down
3. Cat Thrash won’t drop for the next few seconds.

It’s still a loss (or a wash anyway) for single-target, though, so don’t try it there. If you’re looking for more info on AoE rotations, check out this thread.

PTR Funsies

Expect plenty of changes to come down the pike still (I did an initial rundown a few weeks ago) but two new things to note. First, they’ve fixed the various Ursol’s Vortex bugs; no more unlimited Predatory Swiftness procs or Rip extensions in 5.2. :( Second, developers appear to be testing a change to the 2pc PvP set bonus. Instead of the 15% outdoor speed buff we’ve had since vanilla, it’s now +8sec to SR. I doubt this will happen (druid rage would be significant) but if it did go live in thie form, PvP gear would be very very competitive for PvE.

Other Stuff

  • AskMrRobot has a beta client up that recommends VP upgrades, gear recommendations based on your inventory, and optimization upgrades. Great site, and Zooper fields questions on our forum from time to time; go check it out if you haven’t already.
  • Elamari has a good roundup of various movement speed increases (and what stacks with what now) on his blog File under Feral.

  1. What I noticed with the PTR notes is that Soul of the Forest got buffed for all specs accept Feral. The changes to CW and DB shouldn’t have much of an impact on Ferals either. Something that is interesting is the cast time on Shattering Blow. Have to wait and see how much, if any, dps is lost from the cast time. Hoping the boys will have some sim results for us in the near future.

    Cheers for the mention Alaron, greatly appreciated :D The blog post isn’t comprehensive, but covers the ones relating mostly to raiding.

  10. One thing I would like to say is always that before purchasing more computer memory, have a look at the machine within which it is installed. When the machine can be running Windows XP, for instance, a memory ceiling is 3.25GB. Using over this would basically constitute just a waste. Make sure one’s motherboard can handle an upgrade volume, as well. Great blog post.

  37. Many thanks for this article. I might also like to talk about the fact that it can possibly be hard while you are in school and just starting out to create a long credit rating. There are many scholars who are only trying to live and have an extended or good credit history can occasionally be a difficult matter to have.

  38. Thanks a lot for the helpful content. It is also my belief that mesothelioma cancer has an really long latency period, which means that the signs of the disease might not exactly emerge until eventually 30 to 50 years after the original exposure to mesothelioma. Pleural mesothelioma, that is certainly the most common sort and impacts the area about the lungs, might result in shortness of breath, upper body pains, as well as a persistent cough, which may lead to coughing up our blood.
