Re: Class Balancing

Sejta (MT of Paragon) is definitely proving that a guardian has essentially no limits this tier (previously he was forced to play his monk some times). They did one tank Heroic Siegecrafter with just him tanking while Fraggo went Ret. I have recently been pressed into service to tank instead of gett...

Re: expertise cap

@cg: go troll somewhere else I understand you are upset but he isn't trolling, in fact both he and stenhaldi have valid points here. I personally cap for convenience but I understand it does cost me a quantifiable (small mind you) amount of DPS. That said since I am Juju I'm sure I could easily aff...

Re: Druid t16 set bonuses and 5.4 PTR changes

Yeah good thing guardian is getting a buff or else I'd probably have to kick myself out of my own raid :)

(truth is I am probably gonna off-resto this tier to reduce some of the strain on agility assuming the doom and gloom pans out).

Damnit kronic, you need to come back to Turalyon, I am definitely not good enough to be the best cat on the server, we need you!! :-P Also, yeah HoTW = more auto-attack dps, duh :-P.

Re: TF Rune + Heroic Ren

To the people saying Re-Origination is better than Blades: You need to account for crit chance. Re-Origination decreases crit chance by 11-14% while Renataki's increases crit chance by 12-15%. Remember that bleeds snapshot crit chance (as of 5.2). You sir win the thread. /runsandhidesunderarock.

Yeah from the list presented above SR + Rune: 59.5k ticks SR + Juju: 47.8k ticks This confirms my suspicion that Rune > * (which is how I play anyhow). Generally speaking nothing available to use compares to rune, I mean if you reference the table above it takes Juju + Pot + Emb + Steel to have pari...

Re: Druid t16 set bonuses and 5.4 PTR changes

It almost feels like they're trying to buff our non-bleeds here ... a direction that would arguably help our target switching problems (in some scenarios) but would otherwise turn us into every other melee dps. At least that's what the thrust of these changes are telling me. That said I have trouble...

Re: Going forward to 5.4 - did 5.3 solve the dps gap?

You make valid points Dysheki, I apologize if I come off as obstinate and appreciate your patience. I would have to agree that if somehow you removed rogues, locks, and mages we'd be top tier PVE DPS, maybe even #1. Being upper middle of the pack is NOT a bad place to be at all.

Re: Going forward to 5.4 - did 5.3 solve the dps gap?

I will have to summarily disagree with the assertion that DoC is required to good DPS. I have or have had a top 150 parse (and plenty of top 50 with a couple of top 20) on nearly every fight in this tier with the exception I think of Horridon using HoTW for Tranq. It is certain that when I compare m...

I am sick to death of hearing this. Face shooting will begin now!

I am interested in hearing your explanation so I can evaluate if...

And all of that said I am willing to concede I may have jumped the gun (not saying I don't have valid points, just admitting I am human) in evaluating our performance post-patch. It's entirely possible (in fact to some degree likely) that my own perception of us is still negatively affected by the p...

Honestly I've been HoTW for the majority of this expansion since I've also been raid leading (and I personally find them mutually exclusive, not to mention the raid leader in me REALLY likes having the option to either save the raid with the tranq or fill in as a tank for a while or even switch to w...

Re: Going forward to 5.4 - did 5.3 solve the dps gap?

At a risk of waxing too whiny I am still completely unimpressed with our DPS. Anyone who thinks we're "ok" is either deluded or selling themselves short. For the past couple of weeks I have been parsing consistently the highest by a significant margin (as in, ranking the highest) on the fights I do ...

Disclaimer: I don't raid and my only experience as a Feral in MoP is from LFR. My (limited) 5.3 experience tells me that we are very viable as a dps spec right now. We have good, sustained dps and we can build in burst with talents, if needed. We can also provide utility and even some nice healing,...

Re: Feral Rotation & DPS help

Shred does 5% more damage per energy than Mangle, but Mangle generates 12.5% more combo points per energy. The difference between the two is very very small but the sims say mangle is better. In practice the difference is small enough that you would never really be able to prove/disprove which is m...

Re: Mangle vs. Shred

I also believe until you get your T15 2 piece shred is the way to go. I personally am a full on 100% mangle convert as its just fun spamming finishers. That said shred is definitely there for when you get a proc and thrash is up or during bloodlust/berserk or at any point you are energy capped. Swit...

If it makes you feel any better you were the 9th best performer even though you ranked 14th in DPS. I have the same problem, even though I am usually top 5 in overall performance (by rank), I am rarely even in the top half of the DPS chart. We're not in a good place right now on many fights (except ...
