Re: Help me with Opener

There's plenty of threads about this already but here is what I do Regrowth (for Bloodtalons) Prowl Pre pot Old War Rake Savage Roar Berserk Tiger's Fury Ashamane's Frenzy Build to 5 CP Regrowth (even a hard cast is a dps gain) Dash (if not in cat form because you had to hard cast Regrowth) Rip Rake...

Re: Hows Feral on the PTR? anyone know?

The fact is we are suppost to be ST sustain / cleave badass and it does not show sadly. I disagree. We absolutely are beast at ST and cleave. If you're playing correctly, you should top the meters on every fight except Ily/Xavius, by a large margin too. Assassination rogues and Paladins can compete...

Re: eye of command vs bloodthirsty instinct

What secondary stat does your Eye of Guarm have on it? Without knowing that, I'd still suggest EoC; if you're playtesting yields the same results that seems like a reasonable choice.

Feel free to sim yourself but I think the results will be similar.

Re: 881 ilvl Feral needs HELP:)

I recommend 38% with LI when asked. This is what my gear allows for and what feels best for me. Depending on raid progress and titanforging, you may give up too many other stats to hit 43%. Even if you could I don't know if this is beneficial, I was just explaining how I thought of crit breakpoints....

Re: 881 ilvl Feral needs HELP:)

I went to look into Eye of Command out of curiosity and looks like the tooltip (which SimC pulls from a website, wowdb maybe?) and the actual sim value (which SimC scrapes directly from game files) are different. For the 860 base version, the tooltip says 197 Crit per stack, but the sim itself is a...

Re: 881 ilvl Feral needs HELP:)

I'm surprised your simc is still showing 895 stats for you legs. Mine's been fine since they pushed the updated item info to the servers back when the ilvl buff happened. Have you tried doing a clean install to make sure the local cache is updated? I will try this again. What I've found is that whe...

Re: 881 ilvl Feral needs HELP:)

Trinkets: My gut feeling is Urn+Anger would be best. But there are a number of factors to consider: Would Eye/Hunger help you reach a breakpoint and/or do you have Nightbane chest? 36% crit, 38% crit, 43% crit, 53% crit? If so, it may be better. Add fights proccing BTI may also make that more valuab...

Re: Standard Opener Question

First week of mythics I was watching Snorentino's logs. His opener was Regrowth Prowl Potion Rake Moonfire Savage Roar Berserk Tiger's Fury Ashamane's Frenzy Shred to 5 CP Regrowth (Hard casting is a dps increase) Rip Rake (Shadowmelded if Night Elf) I have not looked into openers since then but thi...

Re: Ashamane's bite

Cool, that was my thought too.

I have to wonder now if the math has been done to determine:

If my BT+TF Rip has not procced AB, is there a pandemic range where BT Rip and trying to force an AB is a dps gain on average.

In the same vein, I don't want to overwrite a BT+TF rip with a BT rip, correct?

Re: Potion of Prolonged Power vs Old War?

This is my napkin math:

Potion of Prolonged Power increased my simcraft dps by 35k. Lasting for 60 seconds, this potion does about 2 million damage.

Compared to Old war, which does 3-5 mil.

Re: Need help please

For raids, you will definitely want to be running LI and SR. But if you're focus is dungeons, you can play either set of talent choices. I'm not familiar with the preferred talents for the higher levels of mythic+ (as I am personally tanking those). Since the trash is the biggest issue on mythic+ it...

Re: Im doing something horribly wrong

You say you have no idea why your damage is low but acknowledge you are not snapshotting properly. You definitely need to aim to reapply Rip and Rake with TF/BT every TF use. Also, I glanced at all the logs that were 4 minutes or more. When you are running BS, you are middle of the pack, but when yo...

Re: DPS feedback

The key thing you're missing is snapshotting. Of your 9 Tiger's Fury uses, only once did you use it to Blood Talon's buff a Rip. A lot of the time you aren't even using BT on Rip, it's being consumed by Shred.
