Re: feral questions 2.0

1. If you're only going to use one or the other, Mangle is best, but you should try to use shred during berserk/lust mainly, but also whenever you're about to energy cap, already have SR/dots up, and a stronger thrash than the one you would apply if you used it instead. 2. You should refresh it. Mo...

Re: SoO - Spoils of Pandaria 10/14

I ran DoC on 10H spoils for our first kill tonight. I was surprised how well it performed on a target-swap heavy fight. My side had a Hunter/Warlock, so I never had to leave my tanks target (to kill supernovas or stone guys.) When I did change targets, I tried to make sure my final finisher wasn't ...

Re: OK these SOO trinkets I need Help with RORO

I'm pretty sure what happened is that he had RoRO equiped with the Rune widget pre-saved in the "ON" state, then swapped to AoC+TED which turned the widget off. He saw a dps loss and simmed RoRO again but this time the widget was off and it gave a "similar" yet uncomparable " score " because the wid...

Re: Looking for some help

It's a bit difficult to fine-tune dps for the bosses you posted logs for since any kind of multi-target boss will require either one of the T15 or T16 4sets to make target-swapping easier (it's still possible without, but you'll be having a hell of a time). What stood out is that you didn't seem to ...

Re: Comparing

4 minutes is a really short fight and trinket RNG is going to be much more volatile. He just had better RNG with his procs, nothing you can do about that and nothing you'd need to be worried about.

Re: Simulationcraft - Feral rotation discussion and script

Are you talking about the opener? I've experimented with using FB and/or SR as my first finisher during Heroic Malkorok progression. It's super tight (1 parry from a random spin and gg) but it felt viable. I typically get a DoC'd replacement Rip up before the 10sec is over anyway, but it depends he...

The new 4p is lot less frequent and more predicatble as cg said, and accidentally casting a 3 CP ability isn't nearly as bad as a 1 CP one (eg actually has the potential to be useful). I have more of an issue with how incredibly difficult it is to use when multi-bleeding. Ie. using it EXACTLY on 0 ...

Re: Pick a part my log please.

As far as WoWProgress SimDPS.......you can just ignore it. They don't run 10k iterations which gives a huge variance in your standard deviations (725 dps) and the combat time doesn't exactly line up well with our berserk. And it uses the default "basic" action list instead of the advanced one, so i...

Re: Check me over!

honestly everything looks pretty good. Only thing I would say looks "wrong" is instead of lining up your 2nd pot with the 2nd beserk you should have saved it to buff a bigger rip for the execute phase. Also if you have a good idea of how long a fight will last it may be benificial to not use the 2n...

Re: SoO - Paragons of the Klaxxi 13/14

Something like 1-2 seconds after Ka'roz charges, players standing in the path he passed through get stunned. Avoid this by moving out of his path after each charge. The scorpion buff is indeed affected by savage roar and NV. NV also transfers healing from scorpion attacks. We still found it better ...

Re: Check me over!

You did pretty well considering your item level (weapon and rune). There was a strong trinket overlap about 2 minutes into the fight which you didn't take advantage off and you could've used defensive a bit more aggresively to shove off some incoming damage. I'm not really a fan of Haromm's so I can...

Alpheus, this was in response to people discovering 1-point Rips in the log. Of course everything has exceptions, but I tried to forumulate a few general rules for Rip.

Re: 4PC T16 opener.

Is Ravage only for people with DoC? I don't even have it keybound anymore. Did I miss something? Back in 5.3 Ravage was merely an optimized opener but with the lack of NS in 5.4 now, Ravage with T16 4set enables you to get 5 combo points in one hit thus allowing you to put up a DoC'd rip on the pull

Re: Some help getting a better understanding.

As for refreshing Rip: 1. Only EVER refresh it with 5 Combo Points, or with a FB during Blood in the Water (last 25% of boss's health). There are situations, namely a high renataki stack with RoRo for example, where 4CP rips are better than what you previously had applied at 5 CP and you don't have...
