Re: Cooldowns on shapeshifting?

And each time you shapeshift out of a root, you trigger it, right? Except that it has an internal CD of 30 seconds. So in PvP, there is no way to use that trait properly? Asking as a non-PvP player here. It's actually not bad. I do a considerable amount of PvP. From my limited experience, it serves...

Re: Datamined Legion Talents

I guess my take on it is why does it have to be optimized for BT? Personally, I'd rather it isn't. Eh. You're probably right. My brain has been trained to expect BT as being the superior talent and that other stuff should, as a result, work around it. Maybe a trait like Open Wounds with its current...

Re: Datamined Legion Talents

Some other perfunctory observations from some brief time at the Raid level Training dummy - PvP realm: 1) Shred buff definitely went through. Rake/Rip bleeds down considerably. Overall enormous net loss. Tuning will fix it **crosses fingers.** 2) Ferocious Bite did NOT get buffed. Still doing the sa...

Re: Datamined Legion Talents

Ok so according to today's designer notes, I think this build will feature the [full?] transition from the largest bulk of our damage (by far) coming from bleeds and moving it over to direct damage. I believe bleeds will still do the majority of our damage, it just won't be by tremendous leaps and b...

Re: Datamined Legion Talents

BT has been the go-to talent in almost every situation since it was introduced. I remember taking HotW occasionally in MoP, but BT was almost always the best choice. Well, even that would be fine. Speccing into Brutal Slash occasionally would be acceptable, especially if our boss uptime was low for...

Re: Datamined Legion Talents

An interesting idea, but I think they're on the right track with Brutal Slash being our go-to AE talent. They know what we want. Now it's about tweaking things in terms of design here and there (and damage) to make it truly viable and worthwhile. I've already posted on the forums about trade-offs. A...

Re: Log analysis, help required.

Honestly, many guilds are killing this encounter in just a handful of attempts. Because of this, you won't really get an honest evaluation of your performance. I'd advise self-evaluation by checking with Pawkets' spec guide and seeing if you're doing everything according to the guide. If you discove...

Re: RIP my feral spec

Fret not, Feral brothers. Successive nerfs to Warriors, Rets and now DKs most recently might have swung the pendulum closer in our favor. So while we aren't seeing any direct buffs, we are incrementally climbing the ladder once again. Certainly, as mentioned numerous times above, Mythics are a compl...

Our tank just held the boss right next to the pool we wanted, so the boss didn't jump very far. At most, you'll lose a global. Use on pull as normal.

Re: Hellfire Citadel - Socrethar the Eternal

Lord this fight was a joke and a half. The popular Heroic strat for this seems to be: Burn Mecha-idiot really fast in p1. Should die ~1 min into the fight. At that point, we had one of our tanks hop in and become the new Mecha-idiot for all of p2. If done properly, you'll never have to go through ph...

Re: 6.2 Feral Sims?

Per OP's request, here is the latest full SimC list for most classes/specs and where we (ferals) stand as of June 6 on PTR. Keep in mind, some specs are still MIA from this list and as Pawkets mentioned, MAY look totally different a week after 6.2 releases. http://downloads.simulationcraft.org/Purge...

Re: Patch 6.2 PTR Discussion

Know you guys have been talking about it but I just wanna reiterate the frustration over the set bonuses. Feels so clunky and wasteful. Really don't think I'll be playing my druid this tier if it stays the same. I'm having a hard time understanding how a 9-11% dps gain is wasteful. Yep. T18 bonuses...

Re: Mythic Blast Furnace as feral

Yeah, looking at rankings for this fight is literally the worst thing to do. Try and find first kills for Ferals and go by those numbers instead. Even then, like I said, unless you're doing your Furnace strat the EXACT same way that guild did it -- which is unlikely -- ultimately even this is an exe...

Re: Mythic Blast Furnace as feral

Probably wrong place to post this but as far as answering your question goes: Bottom line is, there are roughly 40 different ways at least to do Mythic Furnace and it seems like every guild does it differently than the next guild. Some guilds three tank, instead of two, some guilds 4 heal instead of...

Re: Blackrock Foundry - Blackhand

But you're not really being forced to use CW on cd the ENTIRE fight. CW can be useful on this fight certainly, but had to correct the record that CW could be used on balconies -- it won't trigger from damage taken on balconies and thus is not useful exclusively in that regard. Renewal, however, is s...

Incoming balcony damage doesn't trigger CW for whatever reason. You can still opt to take Ward for other points in the fight, but if you take it expecting it to come through for you on balconies, you're going to have a bad time. This is one of the few instances I would take YG over CW...

I don't normally advocate pushing back against your RL in most cases. But this admittedly does sound borderline absurd.
