Re: What does BfA look like?

I’ve just mentioned this - and the problems that it brings - on the Feral Discord channel. Guiltyas and his clan of Scientology followers basically yelled me out of the channel! I mean, I have suspected that Guiltyas is dumb as a brick, but still... My theory is that he is perfectly aware of how rem...

Re: Improved a bit but not enough

My advice is this: Run with Blood Scent, Balance Affinity, Incarnation, Brutal Slash and Moment of Clarity. On pull, Prowl > Rake > Shred until 5 CP > Incarnations + TF > Rip > Artifact ability > Brutal Slash etc. If you are Night Elf (and you really should be), remember to use Shadow Meld during th...

Re: New playstyle with MoC :(

You asked how we feel - I feel GREAT! However, I play with BrS, so that generates most of my damage. In fact, playing with Inc/BrS/MoC has me juggling 4 x combo generators and 2 x finishers. That's just as complex as the old JW/SR/BT build: 1 more combo generator, 1 less finisher (but we used FB so ...

Re: SR not snapshotting in 7.3?

Just to clarify: I am not asking for the same stuff back as we had in WotLK.

But one approach to maintaining some degree of complexity could be to add debuffs that we apply to the target. It works fine for a lot of specs, like the Assassination Rogue.

Re: SR not snapshotting in 7.3?

A complaint which has been used a lot - to absolutely no avail :D The other dps specs have also been made more complex. But while a rogue is typically centered around having 3 finishers, they get complexity by adding shorter CDs and debuffs. The level of complexity for Assassination Rogues was raise...

Re: We're doomed my feral friends

I'm really hoping with the 7.3 changes that Bloodtalons and Moment of Clarity will be within a close margin of each other. Bloodtalons is my single most hated aspect of the Feral Rotation, and I played Feral in Wrath... I agree completely. Going from a melee spec with strong off healing to having m...

Re: Artifact challenge

They made this way harder - the imps spawn way faster now.

Edit: They seem to respawn twice as fast as on Kraineth's video. He let's one of the healing imps stand in roots - when I do the same, I just get some more of the same imps.

Re: We're doomed my feral friends

I don't think any of the stuff mentioned in that blue post is the reason that pugs generally don't allow ferals. Addressing the tight rotation and the extreme backloading of dps would help with the player perception of Feral. If we could deliver more dps as direct damage, we would be seen as more e...

Re: We're doomed my feral friends

Indeed. The whole idea behind Feral dps that went live when Legion launched is now being called out for what it has been all along: Too much cookie-cutter talents, way too bleed-centric, a rotation which is way too tight - and so we can only hope that Blizzard will start balancing talents and abilit...

Re: Is feral fun this expansion?

The short answer is: No, it's not fun this expansion. I judge this objectively, based on how many people actually raid with the spec. But if you analyse it further, you get this: - Cookie cutter spec for raiding is with Savage Roar/JW/BT - which forces a play style where you don't have any big dps c...

Re: Shifting to Bear for better AoE?

Energy always regenerates - Rage always degenerates.

So, if I leave cat form, the energy will regenerate. I can then spam Swipe in bear form, as that is only on the global cooldown. In fact, it generates rage in bear form!

Shifting to Bear for better AoE?

Is there any scenario where changing to Bear could be viable for a Feral, in order to do more AoE dps? Like fx when Feral has done Thrash and 2xSwipe and is now energy starved - shifts to Bear to continue swiping in Bear. While in Bear, regens energy - back to cat to use that energy again. Reason I ...

Re: Datamined Legion Talents

Did Blizzard just remove Cat Form from Resto, Balance and Guardian specs? Feral Cat Form Shapeshift into Cat Form, increasing movement speed by 30%, granting protection from Polymorph effects, and reducing falling damage. The act of shapeshifting frees you from movement impairing effects. Shapeshift...

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

@Shmoodude: Correct. WotLK is when Feral starts to become a competitive melee dps spec - competitive in the sense that it starts to be balanced around delivering the same dps as other melee dps specs. And so the "complexity" discussion starts. The John Madden flowchart is made, describing the juggli...

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

@leafkiller: I agree completely - the removal of the hybridity from the Druid class has hurt Feral immensely. But it was done for a reason: It made the different Druid specs competitive, without making us overpowered. But in doing this, Blizzard supported the very single-minded perspective of most p...

Re: Datamined Legion Talents

@Zstriker

SR is incredibly boring, because it has 0 interaction with the target. None. The other finishers have interaction with the target (with Maim having the most interesting interaction - should I CC or damage the target?) and they can even crit.

SR should die in a fire in it's current form.
