Re: Pawkets' Feral DPS Guide & FAQ -- Updated for 6.0!

It's more of a priority then a rotation. ... Use Ferocious Bite if: You have 5 combo points >=50 energy Rip/SR are not in Pandemic If you are at 5cp prepping for a rip/bite, with rake expiring, simc will not rake until you spend the 5cp. Is this correct? I must be doing something wrong if so, becau...

Re: Pawkets' Feral DPS Guide & FAQ -- Updated for 6.0!

ShmooDude has it right - just about optimising as we are losing extremely strong buffs, not because of a specifically short buff. It could also be rephrased as the end of a vulnerability phase - ie puddle is about to explode on first ToT boss. I think at this point it is just a hypothetical, I don't...

Re: Pawkets' Feral DPS Guide & FAQ -- Updated for 6.0!

Is there ever a (practical) point where temporary non-snapshot buffs would push FB above rip? Even if it will result in downtime? Scenario: You have theoretical buff(s), which cumulatively give Y% extra damage for the next few seconds. The buff(s) do not snapshot. You have 5 CP, and so casting FB be...

Re: Simulationcraft APL Discussion

I have been trying to convert the logic I use to simc for the last couple days, hence all the questions about trinket buffs etc :P I will play around with yours though I wrote an addon that I use to track predicted damage vs current - basically a less pretty version of affdots, but I wrote it someti...

Re: Simulationcraft APL Discussion

Current code doesn't sit on energy except for Savage Roar or Ferocious Bite, correct. Though if you can find a way that its an up I'm more than interested in it though. :) My current playstyle is that unless I have procs/trinkets etc, I sit on energy unless I need to cast a finisher soon or I am ab...

Re: Simulationcraft APL Discussion

Okay, I think I get it - So if thrash is under pandemic and >1 enemy, simc will block any latter actions until enough energy for thrash is obtained - otherwise it will continue with all actions below this point by normal rules? Does that mean kitty shouldn't sit on energy while you don't need the CP...

Re: Simulationcraft APL Discussion

Try crit. Pool resource means if all the non-energy conditions are met, wait for the energy to use that ability. Otherwise the action list would fall down to lower energy abilities such as shred. Crit worked like a charm - thanks! I don't quite understand what you mean by pooling there - my underst...

Re: Simulationcraft APL Discussion

Been trying to play around with FB logic to handle losing buffs - http://wod.wowhead.com/item=113931/beating-heart-of-the-mountain&bonus=0 (trinket.proc.multistrike.remains) seems to work fine, but http://www.wowhead.com/item=113985/humming-blackiron-trigger&bonus=0 (trinket.stacking_proc.critical_s...

Re: Pawkets' Feral DPS Guide & FAQ -- Updated for 6.0!

I shifted into bear when our tank went down, and was trying to figure out what was snaring me :P

147%>117% or something is harsh :(

Re: Simulationcraft APL Discussion

Wahoo, I helped :3 Using your improved version, and adding a CP<5 check, I got another 50 dps - basically the cases when we are at 5cp and therefore use FB/Rip/SR instead of rake, wasting our shadowmeld cd. I also found a very slight (<10dps) gain by moving it down to just above the lines to cast ra...

Re: Macro help

You are correct, if it is mashed while on the GCD / casting they will jump nils because only a keypress is needed to jump a nil vs cast success to progress from a spell. It might be safer to add a reset = 3 or something to make sure if it does get desynced you can always just stop pressing it for 3 ...

Re: Macro help

At work, so I can't double check this, will try and remember to update corrections tonight if it doesn't work for you ;P Unless it has been changed, you can use unitnames in macros assuming they are in your party/raid or are pets belonging to you, so you should be fine with something like: /cast [@t...

Opportunity cost I guess? If you wait, you could get another snapshot buff up, but if you spend, you lock in neutral dps for the next period.

Re: Simulationcraft APL Discussion

Minor optimisation, but currently nelf druid uses shadowmeld during incarnation, meaning it gains no benefit for the first use in every fight. Someone can probably find a better way to encapsulate the logic, but this is a 50dps gain there. I am not sure how to check talent so it only applies when yo...
