Re: Datamined Legion Talents

Just accept that Feral isn't setup to have an AoE finisher - our CP generation is too low, unlike Rogues, who generate them almost as quickly as they can spend them. Even with Swipe generating 2 points, the energy cost is very high, and our energy regen rate is also not comparable to that of a Rogue...

Re: Datamined Legion Talents

Heh, +1 there.

Thinking of trying to use SR without the glyph makes me shudder. Having to drop the first 1-2 CPs on it every fight is just endlessly frustrating, I'm certainly hoping that BT comes out ahead.

Re: Feral Druid Blog post discussion

You don't need to snipe kills to proc Predator, just tag the target with a bleed. In its current iteration you'd use it in any fight with adds that die relatively quickly. I wouldn't take that as a given. Look at how for example the rogue glyph works to refresh SnD and recuperate - and all the othe...

Re: Feral Druid Blog post discussion

270 degrees behind vs not in 90 degrees in front are exact same thing, no differene. Since the facing requirement for Rake is exponentially more difficult it should be at least 270 and IMO they should just rid of the facing requirement altogether. My Cat is perfectly capable of raking me when he is...

Re: Datamined Legion Talents

I am a little disappointed to see Savage Roar become a lvl 100 talent. Goodbye bloodtalons :( I think it's fairly safe to assume that SR will be tuned down significantly, maybe into the 10-15% range; otherwise you've got a spec dealing 40% less damage than intended for 100 levels, which seems prett...

Re: Feral Druid Blog post discussion

Thoughts on the talents (very early build, probably no logner current, yada yada). 15: I am super-excited about Predator, it will be a huge QoL boost on anything with adds that have a short TTL but need to be focussed individually rather than AoEd down, which has traditionally been a very weak part ...

Re: Feral Druid Blog post discussion

Tab-Rake has always proven tricky this expansion; issues with tab-targetting aside, range is a big issue (anyone that's done CMs or Iron Maidens will know this pain) as Dysheki mentioned - possibly somewhat alleviated by the Balance Affinity. Another problem, of course, is that energy as a resource ...

Re: Feral Druid Blog post discussion

Easy way to buff up Swipe and not have it compete with Shred would be to increase it's damage only if it hits more than 2 targets (2 is a low-enough number that you could easily roll dots on both even early in the expansion). Our large weaknesses – single-target burst and AoE – have been acknowledge...

Re: The d'oh thread

I set a new record of shortest time alive in a boss fight. Countdown to Kromog pull, I stealth closer, 3, 2, 1, RAKE! splat. I'm still not sure if the boss saw through my stealth at the last moment, or whether I attacked a split-second before the tank. I'll never live that one down. That's happened...

Re: Patch 6.2 PTR Discussion

I'm assuming that those set bonuses are very much placeholders. They're pretty uninteresting, the +10 energy is of incredibly limited use (it gives you 1 more second to play with during downtime at zero haste) and sort of pushes pooling, while the 4pc obviously means you don't want to pool past 60. ...

Re: Should soul of the forest be redesigned?

The main issue is that 1) Inc is incredibly strong because it is always tied to Berserk, so we spam moves that hit incredibly hard during our burst window, and 2) synergy with GoSR and the Rake perk. While I think SotF is "ok" where it is, could it have something else tied to it to combat the second...

Is anyone going for these as Feral at the moment? It seems very tricky - I'm now 4/8 gold (Everbloom, UBRS, Skyreach and Bloodmaul left) and feel like I'm not doing enough boss damage to justify how poor I am at trash, or how much damage I take compared to our Hunters (I'm running Brewmaster/Resto D...

Couple questions... What's your guilds strategy for the pillars. 3 dps groups one on each pillar? Or melee one side ranged other side with both in the middle? Or something else completely?

Cynnea, I also use SUF and WeakAuras to track my bleeds, plus Clique to cast Rake/Rip/MF without target switching. You can set up a WA to track your dots for each boss – create a WA for each debuff, position it where you want on-screen (I have mine right below each boss frame) and then in the 'Trigg...

Re: 6.1 Discussion

Yes, that puts us back to where we were for the start of Highmaul. We dropped off a bit and this brings us back. Which is why I'm saying more of the same. Our ST and 2-3 cleave will be excellent. And our target switching and AoE will be terrible. Nothing new. How is our target switching terrible? W...

Re: Is feral being ignored?

Tectus is a really unique fight though. Thinking back through all of the bosses in MoP, I can't recall one that has an add phase similar to that; maybe Galakras? Generally, AoE (4+ targets) is bursty, cleave (2-3 targets) is sustained – see Twins, Maidens, Kromog, Imperator, Operator, Furnace. That ...

Re: Blackrock Foundry - The Iron Maidens

Any ideas on how to effectively target-switch? We're trying this on HM and apart from the fact that my DPS sucks, it's a nightmare to correctly target-swith to keep DoTs up. I've swithed to LI, so that I can dot from a distance, but I often waste time getting in range of the current target. This al...

If only somebody had thought of a lvl100 talent that would apply rake on thrashed targets, and we could choose between single-target and aoe depending on fight... Bloody Thrash was really only good for sustained AoE; it wouldn't have helped us at all on fights like Beastlord, Thogar and Kromog (whe...

Re: The Aoe situation

The only possible reason for bringing a Feral to mythic Kromog over a Moonkin is that we burst higher for the Trembling Earth phase, but I simply can't see that as a reason when you basically give up any meaningful contribution to AoE on the Grasping Earth hands.

Re: Blackrock Foundry - The Iron Maidens

Indeed, but you refresh a point I made earlier on concerning LI - why are we not talking about this talent more? The ONLY place that it would be considered viable is 2-target cleave, and even then, both targets have to be in range and attackable 100% of the time. A talent like that is just awful. I ...

I really dislike LI; it has such a specific niche (2-4 target sustained cleave), and makes things so much harder to manage, especially at these gear levels. Twins was ok, but anymore than 2 targets and it becomes very difficult, and as soon as you go over 3 targets, or spend any amount of time with ...
