So, in case you haven’t been keeping up, Lei Shen drops a fantastic trinket for ferals, the Rune of Re-Origination. By far, it’s our BiS trinket, even in the Raid Finder flavor. However, you’ll need to do some reforging to maximize it’s potential, since you’ll want to get your stats as close to even as possible (with mastery on top) so you get the greatest benefit from the doubling effect. Unfortunately, most reforging calculators out there don’t support this option. If you want, you can try to do it by hand, or force a calculator to help you (aggixx, one of our invaluable contributors, has a Youtube video on this). There’s an easier way, however.

Enter Catus.

Created by Edgy(aka raffy), another of our invaluable contributors, this helpful simulator tool can take care of the math for you. The program’s still in alpha and isn’t documented very well yet, so I’ve made a quick guide to show you how to set it up. You’ll need Java installed on your computer, if it isn’t already.

1. Download the latest version of Catus from this thread in the forums. Once downloaded, extract and run it (Catus.jar). It takes a while to start up the first time because it downloads item information from the Internet; just let it go. Eventually, it’ll open up to the main screen.

2. Import your character by typing in the name and realm, and clicking “Import.”

3. Check the gear listed to make sure it’s what you want (for this scenario, I gave myself a Rune, because I don’t have one yet /cry). Once happy, click “snapshot current profile in the Gear Differences pane.

4. Once you do that, go down to the reforging box: here’s my pre-reforge stats:

As you can see, this is a typical mastery-heavy setup, with about 7.5k worth of non-mastery, resulting in a 15k mastery setup. We can do better. Click Reforge, and watch the magic happen.

Went from 15k to 19k procs..I’ll take it! Feel free to play with the options; if it gives you a Hit/Exp error, you may need to go into the Constraints tab and lower the “lower bound,’ as it’s effectively saying it can’t hit/exp cap you with current gear. Once you’re done, click the Export button to get a list you can import to Reforgerade, or a similar addon. Have fun! Oh, and in case you’re curious, here’s the DPS difference as reported by Catus:

  1. Thanks for the link to my youtube video. I added an annotation + link to this guide since it truly is the better way to do reforging with RoR.

    Props to raffy for implementing such an amazing tool.

  2. Oh and you might want to mention that by default it will change your orange gems and your glove and cloak enchants to find the best possible solution, so if anyone is having any issues getting the results to match up in game, double check that your gems and enchants are what it wants them to be!

  3. I read on a forum (thus the information is quite likely incorrect or spotty) that Mangle is the new combo-point generator if you’re using Soul of the Forest. As I’ve been extremely casual so far in Mists (often going weeks without logging in) I don’t really know if this is true or not. I suspect that it’s not, given the way that Feral has been for years now, but I figured I’d check here and see. Thanks.

    • Tyelf,
      This is true. Mangle and Shred are roughly equal in damage now, so it’s slightly better to use Mangle to generate cps since you can get Rip up faster. (You still Shred 3x for every Rip, and when you need to dump energy during Bloodlust, and other times that I’m sure aggixx or Tinder will come in and reimind me.)

      • I think that Mangle actually refreshes Rip just like Shred does now, so I guess you don’t even have to use it then. I find this quite silly that Mangle is better than Shred by any measure, it’s akin to Claw going out of date like it did (haha).

      • Ugh, my mind’s stuck in Cataclysm thinking. Yeah, that’s right about Mangle, ignore what I said about the shred extension thing, just remember that it’s strong enough that it’s okay to use it to get Rip up faster.

  4. […] don’t support it. You can attempt to do it by hand and get pretty close, or take a look at this post of mine where I explain a tool that can do it for you. Either way, the final goal is to get to something […]

  5. ooo, publicity :D

    Just an FYI: Step 3 is unnecessary. The Gear Differences “Snapshot Current Profile” feature is specific to computing Gear Differences, it is not used for anything else. It allows you to compare your gear to profile different than your armory. In general, any change you make to the paper doll, will be automatically reflected everywhere else in Catus.

    For example, observe the various stats listed in “Cat Stats” as you change gear, enchants, gems, talents, buffs, and race.

  6. My RoR reads differently. “Re-Origination converts the lower two values of your Critical Strike, Haste, and Mastery into twice as much of the highest of those three attributes for 10 sec.” Why would I gimp the proc by trying to balance haste, mastery, and crit? shouldn’t i stack as much mastery as possible to get the biggest bang out of its doubling effect?

  17. Thanks for your write-up. My partner and i have continually seen that almost all people are wanting to lose weight simply because they wish to look slim and also attractive. Nonetheless, they do not generally realize that there are more benefits just for losing weight in addition. Doctors state that overweight people experience a variety of illnesses that can be instantly attributed to their excess weight. The good thing is that people who’re overweight along with suffering from numerous diseases can help to eliminate the severity of their particular illnesses by simply losing weight. It is possible to see a continuous but noticeable improvement in health if even a moderate amount of losing weight is realized.

  31. I have to express my thanks to the writer just for rescuing me from this type of condition.

  32. I have seen plenty of useful items on your site about pcs. However, I’ve the opinion that notebooks are still not quite powerful more than enough to be a good option if you usually do tasks that require loads of power, like video croping and editing. But for internet surfing, word processing, and majority of other typical computer work they are perfectly, provided you do not mind the tiny screen size. Many thanks sharing your ideas.

Moreover, I believe there are several factors which really keep your insurance premium lower. One is, to take into account buying automobiles that are from the good directory of car insurance providers. Cars which are expensive tend to be at risk of being robbed. Aside from that insurance coverage is also good value of your vehicle, so the costlier it is, then higher this premium you make payment for.

  50. Thanks for the suggestions about credit repair on this web-site. The thing I would tell people is always to give up a mentality that they buy today and fork out later. As a society we all tend to make this happen for many issues. This includes vacation trips, furniture, along with items we would like. However, you should separate your wants from all the needs. As long as you’re working to fix your credit score you have to make some sacrifices. For example it is possible to shop online to save money or you can click on second hand retailers instead of highly-priced department stores to get clothing.
