Re: 6.1 Discussion

After our first night in BRF heroic last night, I did well at Gruul and Oregorger (#2 on both fights), but absolutely burned on Darmac, which was to be expected, ending up in 14th place. I've also offspecced Balance and will be trying to make use of it, but my offspec Balance pieces are pretty awful...

Re: 6.1 Patch Notes

An excellent post from Sten of course. I assume our frankly pathetic AoE damage is going to be looked at in 6.1 (remember, these are just initial patch notes, although it was surprising to see no Feral changes at all in there); lovely idea about swapping Treants to use Thrash rather than Rake – the ...

Re: Highmaul - Twin Ogron (Pol/Phemos)

Tips for maximum dot uptime after I figured out what I was actually doing subconsciously: Snip Thanks for this – seems obvious, but I think I just need more practice on maintaining dots on multiple targets; I hadn't played with LI at all before we pulled these guys on heroic, and had to quickly go ...

Raid healing

So, how is everyone raid healing now? I've been struggling a little with Rejuv-blanketing – I use Clique, so simply mouseover a target in my raid frames and press 1 to Rejuv them, but if I'm trying to blanket the raid, I always find myself struggling to stay mobile and move out of fire, or I stop pa...

Re: A Note on Challenge Modes

Additionally, I've been getting really annoyed with Prowl and Improved Rake and Glyph of SR. Even with macros, I'm still getting a lot of failures. The baked in /startattack needs to go. 10sec Prowl also sucks. I often forget to pre-BT myself because I don't want to miss out on starting from stealt...

Re: Hi Stenhaldi

How many fights would you say you were actually just single target focused? I only ask because (unless it's changed) prioritizing mastery > crit can be beneficial Looking purely at the non-optional race bosses, Kargath is largely single-target (multi-target when you get thrown into the stands, but ...

Re: Kitty Toys!

I tweeted Muffinus about the wings not working in Kitty, and the buff actually being lost - seems inconsistent with how costumes work in 6.0. At the very least, we should retain the buff in caster form after shifting into Cat/Bear, given that it displays perfectly well on the Alysrazor encounter.

Re: WoD Beta General Discussion

The easiest way to fix the 2p would be to word it as "your most-recently applied Rake, Rip and Thrash...", which eliminates the power of tab-dotting and prevents it being overpowered in AoE situations.

Re: Digging into logs – heroic Garry

Got the kill last night (without using the insta-Vengeance cap), and was actually surprised we managed it with the number of screw-ups we made (messed up a Desecrate in p2, I didn't pop Dispersion in time so died at Malice #4). Still, happy we got it and definitely appreciate the advice here.

Re: Digging into logs – heroic Garry

In order to extend Rips, I certainly am, but don't think I can push those DoTs much higher without RoRo; I have access to a regular, non-TFed version but it didn't sim as high as my heroic trinkets using Catus. However, I guess with the multiple chances to extend Rips on Garry it would probably pull...

Re: Digging into logs – heroic Garry

Those 2 simple pieces of advice pushed me from 330k yesterday to nearly 400k today. Much appreciated, and several smooth transitions to p4 accomplished in the first 45 minutes of our raid.

Re: Digging into logs – heroic Garry

It is indeed possible - we're averaging 14% before getting sucked in, but had a couple of tries yesterday where he hit 10% just before we got pulled in, although slightly too late to avoid the phase. I've not come across the HotW-vengeance trick before, but I assume it would work thus: pop HotW and ...

Re: Digging into logs – heroic Garry

Excellent point regarding the potion and holding that pot. Not sure if we can get him to 25% before the Rip runs out after ToES (as you mentioned, we're sitting for this), but I'll give it a try.

Digging into logs – heroic Garry

Hey all, just wondering if anyone would be able to have a glance at our H Garrosh logs and point out anything I'm royally screwing up; I've played Feral for a very long time (since Vanilla) but am aware that there's always room to improve. In general I'm happy with my performance but if there are an...

Re: WoD Beta General Discussion

@Whitepaw I agree that Feral has changed (I also have played Feral since Vanilla), but that's not necessarily a bad thing; it's become a lot more streamlined as a DPS spec and gained tools to put it on a comparable level with other specs in a similar role, but SR is a part of that – it helps the rot...

Re: WoD Beta General Discussion

I don't understand people that STILL carry on about Savage Roar – it's part of the spec; it's been here for nearly 6 years (more than half the life of the game); it's staying. It could be modified in some way – I don't like the fact that it's literally a boring, flat damage increase (rather than SnD...

Re: WoD Beta General Discussion

You are already pooling for the Rip, you can't pool for 2 finishers at the same. Unless Blizzard decides to give Feral a glyph to store more than 5 combo points. There are unlikely to be any boss fights where a target (the boss, with Rip) is taking damage AND be out of melee range AND for nothing e...

Re: Alpha Testing

Now this is exciting - I suggested exactly this glyph/savagery change in the beta a week ago and am very happy that it's made it in. CoS looks like a pvp talent primarily, but I can see uses for it in PvE too (Challenge modes for example). Plus it gets the awesome Saberon model which I just love - I...

Hi, I have a question about 90 Talent. We lost every DMG benefict in comparison to other classes. Is this DMG lost already compensated? Yes. Well, sort of. It will be, but numbers haven't been tuned yet on the beta, so we may be doing less relative damage compared to what we're doing on Live at the...

I also noticed that it appears the mentioned abilities were given back, but it could be a datamining error; like you, I'm waiting for the servers to come back up.

Re: Alpha Testing

It basically means we drop from 2 required slots as we have today (I'm aware that not everyone uses Savagery but the vast majority do so) to 1 for Cat Form or Nine Lives, with 2 free. I'd still prefer a little more choice however - glyphs shouldn't be this strong; they are pure survival glyphs that ...

Re: Warlords of Draenor™ Alpha Testing Begins

Lunar Inspiration + FoN will be somewhat complex – as Corv mentioned earlier, it gives 3 CP dumps (SR, FB, Rip), 3 DoTs (Rake, Thrash, MF) + a couple of cooldowns to watch (Berserk, FoN). Compare this to SotF and Savagery or Bloody Thrash, you lose either a CP dump or a DoT plus a cooldown. I agree...
