Re: 6.2 Feral Discussion

Generally, I am a full proponent of bring the player not the class, but this isn't purely the case for Mythic HFC I find. Up to this point we've been running double feral cause myself and the other feral are really exceptional players, but I personally dropped my feral spec for a boomkin due to our ...

Re: 6.2 Feral Discussion

Feral is very strong in Heroic BRF. Mythic, on the other hand, is really not quite as nice to Feral IMO. 50th percentile Heroic: https://www.warcraftlogs.com/statistics/8/#difficulty=4&dataset=50 95th percentile Heroic: https://www.warcraftlogs.com/statistics/8/#difficulty=4 50th percentile Mythic:...

Re: The energy pooling problem

With 4pc, SC and probably with censor whenever I get it, our dps varies hugely. There are some fights where I am probably 10k below what I usually am due to bad procs or just shitty line up of procs, sometimes 10-20k higher due to luck. I know that luck has to do with getting top level numbers but ...

Re: 6.2 Feral Discussion

Re: How would you rework Feral Druids?

Well yes, development is a lot of copy paste cause creating new assets does take a lot of time. Take into consideration one enemy with custom animation. First they need to create what he looks like and agree on a general rough draft, create the 3D model, create the "skeleton (at this point the coder...

Re: Pawkets' Feral DPS Guide & FAQ -- Updated for 6.2!

I'd be willing to give it a run - maybe I'll try it out on my normal run and see how it performs. Right now I like the crit food since it keeps me around 40-45% crit range but if its a significant contributer... would be interesting. Also if its proc based, feral generally have favorable multipliers

Re: Patch 6.2 PTR Discussion

Honestly for AoE don't discount swipe. I know from my experience in BRF most adds I find aren't worth tab raking but swiping (with a high chance of critting and getting 2 combo points) is actually more benificial to me. It's not the greatest AoE still but there are enough amazing AoE classes that it...

Re: The d'oh thread

My favorite in recent memory

Mythic Maidens

Some1 said "we did it," and in my fashion I start singing Dora cause it lightens the mood - shortly after I died from rapid fire as I was too pre-occupied being Dora the Explorer. Added bonus - I am one of the raid callers so extra funny for the raid.

Re: Are ferals fine right now or still in need of a buff?

I feel we still have some work, the 6.1 did improve things immensely I do agree our AoE could do with some rework. In terms of BRF we mechanically have our place in raid for mythic content, even on beastlord and thogar but as it stands on fights where there requires heavy AoE or constant target swit...

Okay, so with a lot of data collection and curve fitting that I barely understand, here's the formula for speed: http://i.imgur.com/xCqNsbu.gif x is the amount of rating, y is the percent post-DR. The equation is asymptotic towards 29% which means that is the highest value you can possibly achieve,...

Re: Trinket question

Its a good increase - I think the consensus is about 5% of your damage from it which is backed up with what I've seen personally (3.6-4.3%). Its free damage during our major cds (zerk+incarnation) so yea it makes quite the difference

Re: Moonfire(feral) 20% dmg increase

I find LI on the boat as alright - like overall I like using LI for maidens even on the boat but its more benificial if ur staying in the platform. Fairly sure BT is better for boats due to burst but honestly the difference felt neglible either way.
