Re: Less snappy dots?

Honestly I would be very dissapointed if we didn't get at least some damage shifted back into our direct damage attacks. I'm not looking for them to do 1/3rd of our damage but right now they're just pitiful, they almost might as well do 0 damage and we just hit them for the resources. We don't have...

This is what I was thinking as well. Most likely running without raid buffs.

Re: the proper way to judge dps on catus

All three sims are pretty similar, you can use any of the them. If any of the sets include different set bonuses/trinkets then favor in the non-dps benefits before making your decision. Out of curiosity, what ilvl are you?

Re: Simulationcraft - Feral rotation discussion and script

Has someone made the advanced rotation the default in our APL? I've seen an unexpected bump on all feral druids on wowprogress and was wondering if it's that or something unrelated.

Re: How and where do I learn from good ferals?

DoC might be harder but it sims higher than HoTW DoC is higher damage IF you play it correctly. If you are new to feral then you won't be playing it right and therefore your DPS will be lower than HotW If you're new to feral, you'll play HotW badly as well. It's still better as long as you make an ...

Not sure why this keeps coming up, or where the impression came from but secondary stats are NOT RANDOM. All secondary stats on gear will be fixed.

I'm just worried about the havoc the combination of the two main features could cause (namely secondary+tertiary stats and no more reforge s): If the tertiary stats are indeed random and if secondary stats cannot be reforged (you'll be thus hunting for 1 item out of 4-5 viable) then it's possible th...

Re: Blizzcon Discussion (Level 100 Talents/Game Mechanics/et

I've always felt Blizzard keeps increasing RNG to obscure class differences in DPS. However in my opinion it is RPPM not snapshotting that sucks. I think snapshotting is the most interesting aspect of the game, it's just a major pain to do it with RPPM trinkets and a combo point spec. But the only ...

Re: Blizzcon Discussion (Level 100 Talents/Game Mechanics/et

I wouldn't mind a rotation where 100% bleed uptime would no longer be the norm, ie. if you had to use bleeds as your "cooldown" so they would still be a considerable chunk of our damage, but by not requiring 100% dot uptime, you could pick and choose your battles and not fall behind whenever targets...

Re: Blizzcon Discussion (Level 100 Talents/Game Mechanics/et

Let's not forgot feral was one of the most challenging specs to play in WotLK when bleed snapshotting wasn't something we cared much about. It's still possible that we'll have a difficult spec and I highly doubt we'll be taking the perma SR talent without some major changes to FB. Pretty much this....

Re: Blizzcon Discussion (Level 100 Talents/Game Mechanics/et

I could see the Savagery talent possible being useful if you have a stream of lower health adds. Might allow you to get rips up on all of them, rather than having to use some of the points on Roars. Mind you, the moonfire talent might be better in this situation anyway. Not knowing how core abiliti...

A bit offtopic, but my wish list for WoD atm: - New passive: When your Rake ticks, increases the damage of your next Ferocious Bite by 20%, stacking up to 5 times. (numbers PH of course) - Mangle removed. - Shred has no positional requirement and costs 35 energy. - Berserk only reduces energy cost ...

I'm not a fan of removing shapshotting. I also use very basic tools, some weak auras for procs and bad kitty. I've been playing Feral since vanilla but I've never used Ovale. I don't consider myself a top Feral but I never felt it would improve my DPS. However I will give it a try and let you know....

Re: Level 100 Talents

Something to note about moonfire is that even at 30 energy, it isn't going to be the most efficient CP builder unless something big changes with our spell crit. Even if it benefits from Primal Fury (and it's quite possible it won't), it'll crit a lot less frequently than other CP builders. And don'...

Re: Level 100 Talents

I agree that it is still too early to say what kinds of ramifications these talents have. They're based on a "world" that lives in lvl100 raids with the WoD strategies and metagames so putting it into context with our current raid/ability models is just going to give everyone the wrong impressions. ...

The WoL Client has performance problems even opening the log, let alone send it. That's because it lets you pick a range. That's the exact reason it has performance problems.

I suggest you take a look at http://fluiddruid.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=1883. The linked guide also explains how certain combos are better or worse than others and it has a trinket upgrade progression. The BIS table linked there is also accurate (for both WF and non-WF).
