Re: Does Concordance snapshot?

Correct, FB refreshes rip with the exact same SR/TF/BT snapshots it was originally cast with.

Re: Does Concordance snapshot?

The tooltips at best will tell you what your Rake/Rip/Thrash will do when cast. It will take into effect all the buffs you have, both those that snapshot (TF/BT/SR) and those temporary buffs that do not (trinkets/pots). When you cast rake for instance, the initial tick should match the tooltip (thou...

Re: Does Concordance snapshot?

Concordance behaves the same as any temporary buff (e.g. trinkets, potions, jacin's ruse). Only BT, SR, and TF snapshot. Damage for each tick of a bleed is calculated using your stats at the time of the tick, so existing bleeds will be updated when concordance procs, then the damage will fall back w...

Re: Bloodletter's Frailty

Anything that's not a specific snapshot buff should update dynamically, including Bloodletter's Frailty. Another example of an ability like this is Feral Instinct (the Berserk artifact trait). That said, I did not test the new trait personally so it could function differently once we get it.

Re: AMR blogpost on pooling/ahamane's bite

Thumbs up to wellwow and lotj, that's my understanding as well. It's an interesting article that probably won't make a huge difference to people who frequent this forum. Ferals that really want to maximise damage will still want to consider pooling for AB uptime, but when people are posting logs and...

Re: 703 Ovale thread

DPS can vary by 10-20% (conservatively) purely due to rng. The posted simc results at the website ranges from 610k to 770k, with most of the results falling in the 660k-710k range. This is the same script being executed on a completely clean patchwerk fight. Testing individual segments on a dummy is...

Re: Convergence of Fates Simming Questions

Another possibility is that CoF just isn't better at that ilvl. If the proc scales any way, then you're comparing a decent trinket (that had its proc rate reduced for Incarnation) to an overbudget stat stick and BTI, both of which are considered overbudget for their iLvl. Part of the reason NH trink...

Re: Help with DPS

The hotfix did not change the ratio of rip to rake, so Rake relics are still marginally better.

Re: Hows Feral on the PTR? anyone know?

I think the primary complaint is feral usefulness in M+, and some raid fights such as il'gynoth with many short-lived adds. My view on this is that Blizz has said over and over again that they feel like feral's single target sustained niche is what they want, so I bet a lot of the people who may hav...

AMR enforces the equippable legendary cap. Make sure you've set the limit to 2 in the filter menu at the top (right beside your stat weight choice.)

Re: 881 ilvl Feral needs HELP:)

I went to look into Eye of Command out of curiosity and looks like the tooltip (which SimC pulls from a website, wowdb maybe?) and the actual sim value (which SimC scrapes directly from game files) are different. For the 860 base version, the tooltip says 197 Crit per stack, but the sim itself is ad...

Re: 881 ilvl Feral needs HELP:)

I'm surprised your simc is still showing 895 stats for you legs. Mine's been fine since they pushed the updated item info to the servers back when the ilvl buff happened. Have you tried doing a clean install to make sure the local cache is updated?

Re: Wildshapers Clutch and Ashmane`s Bite

AB copies the current duration in addition to the damage of your rip. It might be that you aren't early refreshing your rip when it's the same power as the current one. I'd be surprised if this would double your AB damage, but it might be part of it. The current simc profile refreshes Rip at <8s rem...

Re: Feral Scaling?

That's a cool analysis.

I ran some quick sims (patchwerk, 3-target, and HecticAddCleave). It looks like the top combo for single target is serpentrix + BTI/nightmare egg shell. BTI and NES are within error of the sim (150 dps difference) so are effectively equal. For 3-target cleave (where haste is gaining value by increas...

Re: Ring of Collapsing Futures, good?

Correct usage is every 30 seconds; might be technically beneficial to accelerate usage near the end of a fight to get one or 2 extra uses in the last minute, but I'm not sure if the math has been done on that.

I made sure to check that the simc T19H profile doesn't use any NH gear at this point, only currently available stuff upgraded to 865. It does have Jacin's Ruse and no legendaries, both of which might significantly swing effectiveness. I guess I'm saying that Tinder is right that you should always s...

Those were all done paired with BTI. I did a quick and dirty (1000 iterations) to compare BTI to the others and it is no doubt superior to the other choices. These are with no trinks as base, rather than BTI in slot 1 and swapping out Trinket2. I think the difference is large enough that a bigger si...

I ran a quick sim using the simc T19H profile as base, and the results confirm your thoughts. Memento leads, pvp trink in 3rd on average, but has a slightly higher max, and chaos talisman in second with low variance. All of that said, the difference between the 3 trinks is incredibly trivial to the ...
