Re: Askmrrobot accuracy and trinkets help

i am also trying to figure that out, but when i looked ranked players they all have like %60+ mastery. I also put their chars on simcraft, while they have done 550k dps in logs, simcraft show something like 480k dps. I am totally lost in how to gear my feral. DPS Variance for 880+ players is in the...

Lots of ferals use BS over LI for single target these days.

LI hasnt simmed higher for my character at any point in legion after raids opened up.

Re: Legion Raiding SR vs INC

SR is far above Incarnation for basically everything. Would only take Incarnation for fights like Gorefiend with long windows of massively increased damage, which don't exist in legion raids currently.

Re: Feral Trinkets in Prepatch - Mythic HFC

Rules for prepatch are pretty simple.

Equip Seed of Creation and one of Alch trinket/Skull of War/Heirloom trinket.

Get 40% crit, then stack versatility.

Never spec out of Blood Scent/Incarnation

Re: Actual Ferals in Legion

Current math has people getting their second gold traits a little bit after raids unlock, probably the same week if they go with 3 weeks until opening up Emerald Nightmare. Only then will mythic+ runs become available. I have done plenty of mythic+ stuff on the beta. And quite honestly, getting up t...

Re: Ferals in Legion

Double Crit chance on FB was removed for good reason. We are already at disgustingly high crit levels in pre-raid gear. Shred being our highest damage source is probably the best thing to happen for viability in a long time. We can apply meaningful damage to priority targets now. The spec feels exac...

Re: Brutal Slash

No, his Thrash vs. Shadow Thrash Numbers are accurate. I have 56% mastery and still see a 10:1 Ratio. Also, as to why Shadow thrash seems high to you: Spoiler if you don't want to figure it out yourself Shadow Thrash scales with mastery But maybe we keep that quiet in case it isn't supposed to :^)

Re: Is it in Blizzard's best interest to lower feral skill c

Have you even looked at where feral is going in Legion? We have moved far away from being a DoT focused spec. 30-40% of your damage on single target fights comes from shred. Rip and Rake combined do not do as much damage overall as shred (AND THIS IS WITH JAGGED WOUNDS WHICH HEAVILY INCREASES BLEED ...

Re: Datamined Legion Talents

I just hate how obviously imbalanced that particular legendary is. It single-handedly increases the damage of whirlwind by 66% . And whirlwind is a completely free AoE ability that can be spammed at will. While Thrash is a bleed, so by default we are limited to one thrash every 10 or 15 seconds depe...

Don't think so, he just happened to be one of the few people who had talents set up when someone facepulled nythendra

That, and he got lucky with the OP whirlwind legendary, so his AoE is ridiculous even without bladestorm.

Re: Datamined Legion Talents

There is no way Rake does less damage than Ashamane's Frenzy in a given fight. Rake has 396% AP damage while Ashamane's has 1200% AP, so 3 Rakes (which will be 45s) will break even with AF which is on a 1.2 min CD. In practice, i'm pretty sure that Ashamane's Frenzy does more damage than the toolti...

Re: Datamined Legion Talents

So it looks like double crit chance on FB is gone for good? Haven't seen anyone mention it in a while and its most definitely not present on the PTR (I got 51% crit chance and can easily get non-crit FBs on bleeding targets). I have been told its just a tooltip error, and its working as is on live ...

Re: Is it in Blizzard's best interest to lower feral skill c

The issue with "being needed" in Legion is that for melee, the metrics to use are 1. How good are you at AoE 2. Do you bring useful raid utility (Commanding Shout, AoE Stuns, AoE Slows, Death Grip) 2. Do you have an immunity Unless you have some of those, you are at the whims of balance tuning. I do...

Re: Clearcasting proc more than half hit on PS at 4 or 5 cp

OoC procs are totally random, sometimes you get procs at great times, and other times you sit energy capped for multiple GCDs. Getting procs at 4/5 CPs or at high energy is just bad luck. Its important to remember that having the 4pc means you should keep your energy low rather than pooling it like ...

Re: Artifact weapon traits PVE

Optimal route is almost certainly going to be grabbing Open Wounds, and then taking a left at the fork on the top to grab Shadow Thrash. Somewhere in there you'll want to grab the Feral Power traits for the bonus shred crit chance. Depends heavily on how fast you are gathering artifact power. But as...

Re: Is it in Blizzard's best interest to lower feral skill c

It definitely seems like the affinities are much more effective for Guardian/Resto than for Balance/Feral. Which seems obvious since they don't always need to be performing their given role. @Tinderhoof Did they do something to Sunfire I'm unaware of? Last time I used balance affinity was as guardia...

Re: Datamined Legion Talents

Note that currently Jagged Wounds still maintains it's synergy with the Open Wound's traits. Allowing for much more uptime on the debuff.

We still have yet to see how the plan to reconcile blood in the water/Sabertooth with the trait though, so it's synergy may become irrelevant.

Re: Datamined Legion Talents

Blood in the Water is also working. An Ashamane's Bite proc when you refresh Rip sub 25% gives you a full duration Rip copy. Good stuff even though I still hate the trait. Unless boss armor percentage has changed this expansion, 100% armor ignore should = +50% damage (from ~66.6% to full damage). Co...

Re: Datamined Legion Talents

I'm not opposed to shifting our damage proportions into a more sane split between Rip/Rake and Bite/Shred. That would go a long way to making our damage relevant on short-lived targets. It would also address some of the high-itemlevel drop off that we always see with higher crit/haste levels transla...

Judging by his responses, it seems more like he thinks the tuning issue is that our current set bonuses make haste bad. But of course haste has been bad all expansion.
