Re: feral druid dps help

To be honest I don't see anything that directly shouts "Major DPS problem." However I do see a few small issues. In no specific order: - You are short of reaching both your hit cap and your expertise cap of 961 and 781, respectively. It is better in my opinion to be 2 or 3 points below as opposed to...

Re: Condensed Feral spell changes 5.0

Stampede is still in game for Mists. Not exactly sure what it's linked to but it could be anything. It's very doubtful that we'll use Pounce in PvE, and Prowling just to Ravage seems a bit far fetched as well. I wouldn't bother speculating since Blizz is notorious for sudden, radical changes between...

Re: Feral Weapon

Don't be so dismissive of 92% as feral, especially on Blackhorn of all fights. You see, the prolonged presence of multiple targets for the first half of the fight makes the ship a decent spot for a kitty to strut his A-game. You were without a doubt up against the top logs of some heavy hitters, in ...

Re: adding in bear mangle to our rotation

@Stenhaldi: The only issue I've noticed with your math is that you've only considered OoC probabilities from auto attacks and not special attacks. It really wouldn't alter very much, though. You would have to double the chance of instantly aborting since you are going to dump as much energy as you c...

Re: Feral Weapon

There is a way that you can go into your equipment manager and save each set, one with spire and one with kiril's, and then macro them into something else. For example if you name the sets "Kiril" and "Spire" it would look something like #showtooltip Rake /equipset Spire /cast Rake assuming no modif...

Re: adding in bear mangle to our rotation

Not really. Considering every plausible possibility is done by people of every class and spec. That's why bear tanks in BC would pull with Moonfire, why (pro) kitties in wrath would cast Gift of the Wild 10 times in one fight, or why I still use Flame Caps on my fire mage to this day. Min/maxing is ...

Re: adding in bear mangle to our rotation

A few thoughts on what else would need to be taken into consideration to properly evaluate this: 1) Toying with this in game it seems as though both shifts activate a 1.5 second GCD 2) The shift from bear back into kitty happens instantly upon activation, meaning only 3 seconds out of kitty form and...

Re: Yor'sahj the Unsleeping

Coming straight from the mouth of an admitted meter-whore and what my friends like to call a "World of Logs stalker," this is one of those fights that you should just minimize your damage meter off of your UI. Just focus on the mechanics of the encounter and respect the limits of your spec. A 7% wip...

Re: Warmaster Blackhorn

Purely out of curiosity, why do you tank 1 & 3 instead of 2? I've been tanking a lot this tier since we lost one of our tanks and I decided that I'd rather do it myself than deal with the onslaught of derpitude that comes from trying to find a reliable tank. Is it because you can Berserk kitty form ...

Re: Yor'sahj the Unsleeping

Yeah the healing staff macro'd into tranquility is certainly a win combo to be sure. However this is the Yor'sahj thread.... so although it may be obvious I will still mention: Do NOT use tranquility with your FR on purple phases during this encounter. I'm guilty myself of only half-skimming a coupl...

Re: Yor'sahj the Unsleeping

Yor'sahj may be one of the fights that it's actually better to remove the glyph of FR, stay in bear form and provide the healing yourself during difficult purple phases as your FR heals will not stack the debuff. As far as shifting back into kitty after applying a glyph FR, it has been my understand...

Re: Spine of Deathwing

Finally at this fight now, and so far I've gathered this: I am the only one bringing mangle + FF, so I have to apply both at the start. With Berserk up I do ~1.4m dmg on the tendon, without I do ~900k. This is in i399 gear, LFR polearm and haste-reforge. Pre-tendon: Get full SR from Amalgamation du...

Re: Hagara the Stormbinder

what is the "rotation" on the stun phase? Obviously charge, mangle (can't remember if it falls on ice/lightning phase), rake and keep shreding until phase is off? FB? or rip?

Re: Let's talk about logs (Gearing and Execution advise) 4.3

If the buff was never gained or lost during the fight then it won't display on the split for that fight, even if it was up. Mark of the wild was up. Blessing of might was not up. You can tell by looking at a larger split (like the full raid). Also, windfury is redundant with the survival hunter's h...

bump ;p Your damage was indeed below what you should've expect. As a matter of fact, your entire raid's was. Truth be told your group got very lucky to get that kill under the circumstances, given that nobody had Mark of the Wild/Blessing of Kings, and nobody had Blessing of Might or an equivalent ...

Re: How long did it take you to become "good"?

All of this is made possible only by the 2- and 4-piece tier 13 set bonuses, however. Thank god for that. In an expansion that was largely uneventful aside from a couple changes to our swipe damage, the playstyle changes that resulted from our tier sets were and are a welcome change of pace. I actu...

Re: Feral Weapon

Yes it is. Kiril's proc doesn't make up for the higher weapon dps and the "normal" secondary stats of a higher iLvl Spire. So the order is simply H Kiril > H Spire > N Kiril > N Spire > LFR Kiril (there is no LFR Spire). And while it's fun to be the "big cat" with Kiril I'm happy that with Spire th...

Re: Question about Feral 4 PC for a feral Cat

So one other question... You mentioned if you do not have it glyphed it just heals everyone like a tranq, but having it glyphed it just increases the healing done for everyone? So you can go either way with that ? Which is more effective for a 25 man in your opinion? I have been going with the glyp...

TL;DR - The best advice I can give about how to become great at Feral Cat is to steadily repeat a cycle of 1) read/study all you can, 2) play and attempt to implement what you've learned, 3) review performance and evaluate execution, 4) make a plan to prevent any mistakes you notice from happening a...
