Re: Datamined Legion Talents

I did some dungeons on the 100 realm today. Feral overall looked alright. I was quite happy to notice that Thrash was doing fairly good damage, with Bloody Slash working I think we might be able to do some fairly good AoE which I think is a great improvement. I played with jagged wounds +savage roar...

Re: Datamined Legion Talents

I'm personally very interested in seeing the first pass of Feral druid on Alpha. From all the things I've been able to read I really like the impression I am getting in making Feral a more versatile class that could hopefully comply to the current raiding standards. Looking forward to the first pass...

Re: Blizzcon 2015 Discussion

Afford was used contextually (hence the quotes) to refer to the shortcomings of priority target burst damage vs. the other positives Feral brings. I think calling Feral 'mediocre at what it does best' is slightly overstating our problems. We have the capability to beat a very large number of classe...

Re: Blizzcon 2015 Discussion

I think something like Infernals is a specific example that depends on your raid comp as to if it is a big issue. If you are stacking a ton of classes that are all mediocre, sure... but if not, you can 'afford' to take the hit from a Feral to take advantage of the sustained Archimonde damage in tha...

Re: Blizzcon 2015 Discussion

I've personally given up on the hopes, I've also rerolled to rogue a while back to finish up progression so I'm not really attached to feral anymore. I don't know what Blizzard's view on Feral is anymore and I just stopped caring about it as well. This expansion has been a terrible experience as Fer...

You could do it based on target, as long as you target the boss before pull, it should be fine.

Re: Hellfire Citadel - Xhul'horac

Also strongly disagree Nayni in regard to your assessment post-buff. You are probably 100% correct previous to the hotfix, but Feral is exceptional on boss damage for this fight nowadays. I'd say WW is really the only other class that is better than Feral in that regard. Rogue is probably the best ...

Re: Hellfire Citadel - Xhul'horac

If you're purely talking progression, you shouldn't take a Feral in the first place. Other then that Mirror is the best option by far. Even as rogue mirror does about 10-15% of my damage, to put this in perspective, blade flurry does about 20-25%. Also what Kojiyama said about timing it is true, Mir...

Re: 7.0 Rumors and discussion

The exact same thing could happen with a more bleed focused or direct damage focused design rather than a hybrid one (although they would like be different problems). I agree the exact same thing could've happened, but I believe that the lack of direction with the spec was a reason the spec got lef...

It's been a while since I posted here, mainly because I just haven't been active as feral anymore and have rerolled mains in the past month. The reasons I rerolled are why I personally found that Feral was just not a competitive raid spot, I realise that not everyone in the community plays at the le...

Re: 7.0 Rumors and discussion

Sustainable healing shouldn't be something that comes from a hybrid anyway in my eyes. Sure a cooldown like HOTW or Nature's Vigil that can be used in emergencies or special scenarios but I place those more into the category with shit like Smoke bomb or Sac, which is what true raid utility (from a d...

Re: patch 6.2.2 feral buff thoughts?

I haven't really done any math on it yet as I honestly am just done with Feral at this point, but these fixes just look like the little enhance buffs they did a while ago. It's nice but it doesn't solve anything in the grand scheme of things.

Re: Hellfire Citadel - Fel Lord Zakuun

We use stampeding roars for every seed. I personally always used blink to get back mostly because I was one of the people that kept the debuff for the rest of the fight to dodge. In that scenario I felt it was more safe to instantly blink and gain distance then to risk getting hit even once.

Re: 7.0 Rumors and discussion

The only time the spec you are that matters is the top 10%. At this point in the tier, the spec does not matter. Upgrading the ring every week across the raid is like a 1-2% nerf to every encounter and it keeps growing. In what universe would making a more optimal and viable raid composition not ma...

We still top single target and suck on aoe I assume. I'll fix that for you: We don't top single target and also suck at aoe. Ferals aren't doing too well at the moment. Depending on how serious you'll be taking raiding you could find yourself a bit disappointed with how Feral is performing at the m...

Re: 6.2 Feral Discussion

My point is that in most guilds a feral can find a raid spot if you're as good as most of the other people in your guild. Very, very few guilds have a roster filled with enough skilled players that sitting a weak spec solely because it is weak is justified. While I agree with your statement that go...

The only other spec I'd play is a sub rogue, and I hear they're viewed even less favourably than feral.

The kill of mythic Archimonde had to happen on the try where I get knocked off the platform by a 10% void star (and not the 1% wipe where I played perfectly).

Currently have my alt rogue geared up to the point where it's going to have to step in for progression on Xhul when Tyrant falls. For me sublety rogue is exactly what I want Feral to be. - It has a deliberate play style where you wait for prime moments to dump your resources. - You have very strong,...

Re: 6.2 Feral Discussion

The idea that Nayni was suggesting is that in true AoE scenarios you could Swipe to build up the CP needed for Thrash very quickly (e.g. a single Swipe.) Swipe would almost certainly take the place of Shred in 3-target scenarios here (which is totally fine, IMO...since right now it is virtually use...
