Re: Is feral fun this expansion?

I think it's fun. I like it being one of the more complex specs in the game - that's why I play it, not because I expect to be top damage for the effort put in. I think the real problem with JW is that it reduces the dot period and the dot duration. If it were just a reduction in period for a fixed...

Re: Is feral fun this expansion?

The thing is though that, after playing warrior and windwalker monk, it seems like dot-focused specs have no place in this game. In theory DoTs have the counterbalancing advantage that you can continue to damage a boss that's gone unattackable, although the shorter DoT timers reduce the magnitude o...

Well I missed the final boss thing because I was doing yard work. Can't watch it because it's only available to subscribers.

Re: Is feral fun this expansion?

As far as DoTs, I remember debating you back when we were much stronger DD back in the beta. You were arguing that bleeds don't matter enough because they weren't significantly higher DPE than the DD abilities and so differences in uptimes aren't as important. So Blizzard pushed us from "bleeds don...

Re: Is feral fun this expansion?

Not sure what you mean by clunky, but it is pretty high risk vs reward (relative to other classes) which iirc is what you advocated for in beta. Some things on the rotation that might not be obvious at first glance: Ignore your pandemics and refresh Rip at <8-9, Rake at <7, and SR at <12-13. Pool e...

How has the most recent update for feral improved gameplay?

The gm of my guild sees feral druid dps as pretty powerful at the moment after their most recent build. I was wondering if the most recent build has improved the quality of gameplay and feral's viability. They are considering having me play is as my main alt.

Re: Ferals in Legion

Playing other classes is probably one of the main reasons why I lost interest in feral. If you dont want to lose interest, then stay away from other specs. Feral has changed so much over the years. If you initially explored the specs in the game and determined that feral had the most fun playstyle f...

Re: Is this an accurate breakdown of bleed value in legion?

One of the cells on the spreadsheet was not changing appropriately. I got everything in order now and it says 9.77% difference between 100% uptime and 0% uptime. It doesn't consider the Ashamane's Bite trait though, and I don't know how damage from this ability is calculated. Can I afford to Rip thi...

Re: Is this an accurate breakdown of bleed value in legion?

I figured that you could somewhat speculate about how each of the talents contributes to damage. For example, Blood Scent will almost certainly influence Ferocious Bite damage compared to Rip because it will result in more fb casts and the fb crits have a multiplier of 2.15 compared to rip's lower c...

Re: Ferals in Legion

My guess is that feral is basically going to be in the same place they were in WoD. However, they probably learned from WoD that they need to be more on top of the feral scaling issue, so maybe they will give more attention to it than usually and it will be better suited for progression than it was ...

Is this an accurate breakdown of bleed value in legion?

As the expansions go by, the value of bleeds keeps dropping. More and more they count for a smaller percent of our total dps. It's getting to the point where it feels like my decisions do not matter. So, I decided to figure out if that is actually the case. I wanted to compare 2 scenarios: one with ...

Re: Is it in Blizzard's best interest to lower feral skill c

This has made the gameplay a whole lot easier tbh. Even with the fabled DoT snapshotting, it was still really easy. And let's not forget, the snapshotting was both RNG and gear-dependent. The real skill-cap was how well the player was able to read up on forums like this one and then install the rel...

Re: Is it in Blizzard's best interest to lower feral skill c

Wider skill gap means there is more room to improve. The game is playable for longer because you can always do something better. That's why snapshotting was such an amazing mechanic. No two fights were the same and you had to rely on your intuition instead of a boring concrete dps rotation. Discover...

Re: Is it in Blizzard's best interest to lower feral skill c

The difference in DPS for ferals was significantly larger than that of any other spec. Now, you can argue that the percentiles we're looking at now are too close (I don't agree, but that's just my opinion) but snapshotting was really just too strong in SoO as far as ferals were concerned. I have no...

Re: Is it in Blizzard's best interest to lower feral skill c

I disagree that the difference would be monumental. With enough practice, you should be able to get a sense of how powerful a bleed was when you applied it. Seems like the argument is that any benefit from gaming the snapshot mechanic goes out the window completely. Asgard, there is a difference bet...

Re: Is it in Blizzard's best interest to lower feral skill c

The game should give you the proper tools to play optimally. It's fucking ridiculous that the default UI has seen no changes relevant to dps since its release 12 years ago.

We were the ones playing the game wrong all along. Waiting for there to be some kind of pay to win aspect to the game.

Idk. I might consider it. I invested so much time into wow. Not sure how hard it would be to pick up another MMO when I've only played wow. Plus I have like 6 million gold I need to do something with lol.
