Re: Horridon

Full time job and 8-9h raids on top of that sux No kidding. Anyway, I'd recommend HoTW too. You should be able to get it off twice, once on third gate and once right before fight ends. It's useful as hotw is around 120% of non-berserk kitty dps, which is like 150k now? for ferals on heroic horridon...

Re: Heart of the Wild weapon switch question

The int weapon will almost always be better, unless we're talking about a green weapon from the last expansion or something. The bigger issue is: a.) is the int weapon worth the gcd to swap and b.) should you even bother casting HoTW (wrath) in that case? I believe a.) is solved by swapping weapons ...

Re: heroic protectors, gear problem

There's a good reason to use a feral as an interrupt - skull bash is 13 yards vs basically every other melee's 5. When you single tank this fight (and you should), the 3 bosses sort of get shuffled around, and sometimes you're simply out of interrupt range of Asani if you're dpsing your target - esp...

Re: Tier 3/5 Talents for Challenge modes

Typhoon is easily the best choice regardless of scenario. The last thing you want to do in a challenge mode is to not hit things, and that's required to make ME work. To be fair though, I don't use typhoon much either, doing so takes away dps and that is somewhat counter to how challenge modes work....

I never really paid attention to my mana while casting hurricane, it just never seemed to be an issue.

Re: 9% wrath damage increase

In my experience, and it's very hard to judge with only 45 sec bursts so I could be slightly off here, but wrathspam is currently about 10% higher damage than non-berserk normal cat dps assuming ~8 ilvl weapon difference. With a 9% buff, it's basically 20% higher, which may actually be worth incorpo...

Re: Lei Shi

Once we find out where she is, I use hurricane to knock her out of hide. Not only does it keep my energy up for the actual dps parts but it contributes over 4x as much to breaking her out of hide since it's the number of hits that determine when she stops hiding, not damage.

Re: ilvl and DPS Output

My rule of thumb for a patchwerk fight is 80k dps at ilvl 470, then add 1.5k dps per ilvl you have above that. eg. ilvl 500 druid should do ~125k dps. Simulationcraft always seems to undervalue my dps for whatever reason (keeps telling me I should be around 115-120k dps when I was at 140 in actualit...

Re: Low DPS for gear i have, Please Help

HoTW doesn't involve itself in the rotation. It's just a passive 6% damage increase. If you see a bunch of adds though, feel free to pop it and hurricane (I actually have hotw/hurricane macroed, it is off the gcd.)

As for NV - macro it into berserk.

Gear - reforging, gemming, enchants look fine. If you have any valor points, toss 'em into your relic of xuen. General rotation - 1.) Use cooldowns when they come up. Ex: Tiger's fury 11 and 13 times out of a possible 17/19 times on Elegon/Will. Same with Berserk. 2.) You're not using DoC to its pot...

Finally got a chance to try this. On heroic windlord, bear abilities accounted for about 6% of my total damage, and I'm pretty sure the damage was almost completely free. Not bad.

Re: Two Target bleed cleave rotation

I must be missing something here, but what does soulswap contribute?

You're building up bleeds on one target twice, vs just tabbing and building up bleeds on two targets. Do the rip extensions get reset when you soulswap?

Re: On the use of bear-form abilities in a DPS rotation

Very interesting finds. I'll try weaving in some bear thrashes next time on heroic sha [we don't get to aoe during windlord anymore :(] and see if it helps.

Maybe this'll bump awareness, utility, and now damage all in favor of HoTW now, heh.

What I do now is thrash, rake on the 3 targets, and make sure rip is rolling on one, but if swipe turns out to be better dps then I'm all for simplifying my priority list :)

I find that with custom weights, the calculator completely ignores my "force expertise/hit caps".

You don't really want to push the boss too fast. The point of the fight (at least on normal) is to get enough puddles on the ground to kill the guy in phase 3. There are quite a few ways to do the fight with stack swapping, but I've found the simplest way is: 1.) In phase 1, extend the fight to 3-4 ...

Our tanks have priority on symbiosi, but is plague shroom really that much better than just spreading pestilence?

Feral druids are ridiculously strong on the fight though (hard mode). Thrash and hurricane are amazing.
