2T17, Shattered Hand enchant?

Can't find a ready answer:
a) Does the Shattered Hand proc trigger our 2pc?
b) Is it worth it?

Re: Warlords of Draenor™ Alpha Testing Begins

For that idea to work the Savage Roar talent would need to be noticeably higher in damage output then the other two to justify it's existence. If it just did on par damage with the other just having Savage Roar by itself offers nothing really interesting vs having extra capabilities and flexibility...

Re: Warlords of Draenor™ Alpha Testing Begins

I think what made DoC so appealing was not that it existed for challenge sake alone (it didn't). It offered a possibility of higher over all damage for taking on the risk of doing less damage for sloppy play. It also encouraged PvE druids to actually pay attention to Predatory Swiftness. Rather tha...

Re: Warlords of Draenor™ Alpha Testing Begins

It's because it leads to conservative gameplay (promotes ressource-pooling and target-tunnelling), instead of a more aggressive gameplay, where multiple threats and targets are seen as an opportunity instead of an inconveniance. Would you care to elaborate on this point? I think that conservative g...

Re: Warlords of Draenor™ Alpha Testing Begins

I see several issues with those proposals. It would lead to a spec-wide loss of control abilities. It places DoC on a tier with LI and Savagery, which mandates a replacement in the "hybrid" tier and offers the "choice" of selecting two hybrid talents in scenarios that it might prove effective. Remov...

Re: Warlords of Draenor™ Alpha Testing Begins

Good points. I'd been less interested in actual output than in grokking the flow of the rotations. The note on Moonfire's crit is something I'd forgotten, now we just need confirmation on the interaction between LI/BT and Primal Fury. I suppose we could also use confirmation that these are all inten...

Re: Warlords of Draenor™ Alpha Testing Begins

I might be overestimating Savagery, but I'm also not surprised to hear that the simple option is not as effective. At a guess, somewhere near 1FB/40s more than the other options, but slightly more due to relaxed timing, as well? Doesn't the Bloody Thrash talent add CP generation to the ability? Or a...

Re: Warlords of Draenor™ Alpha Testing Begins

I'll grant the 50k delta, then. Definitely more than "marginal," but that 360k is still within the normal range of the DPS I sampled earlier to estimate Iron Juggernaut performance. If the spec is still capable of that performance without intentional snapshotting, I'm not so sure it's problematic. P...

Re: Warlords of Draenor™ Alpha Testing Begins

While I understand your point, I think you'd have a hard time convincing most people that 10k DPS is "marginal". Also, SimulationCraft undervalues snapshotting quite a bit as it has (almost) no concept of predictive clipping, and since it follows a rigid priority list it does not make outside the b...

Re: Warlords of Draenor™ Alpha Testing Begins

I never got that either. I started raiding as Feral after patch 1.8, and this "complexity" mindset was not apparent during Vanilla/TBC. Back then, we focused on viability. The reason we focused on viability in BC was because unless we were offtanking we weren't viable. I, too, have been Feral since...

Re: Warlords of Draenor™ Alpha Testing Begins

I worry about the loss of rotational complexity caused by snapshotting's removal, which looks like a choice made with casters in mind. However, I see room for hope. The depth of snapshotting's gameplay stems from our inability to freely refresh our DoTs. We are constrained both by the Combo Point co...
