Re: Pawkets' Feral DPS Guide & FAQ -- Updated for 6.1!

It also helps your argument that going up just to throw out improved rakes isn't actually a dps gain if you're geared correctly for that fight (stacking crit and multistrike). There's no cheese for parsing high on that fight, the key is to stick to the boss like glue.

Re: Blackrock Foundry - Beastlord Darmac

Do you guys multi-rake the spears on Mythic? I've found my dps to really suffer on this fight. The thrash buff combined with the boomkin starfall nerf should improve my dps considerably because I'll get much bigger bleed ticks off the pack beasts, but maybe I should also be targeting the spears more.

You gotta do what you gotta do for your own sanity's sake. It's easy to find another guild, especially if you have low standards. You wouldn't be letting down anyone, can't think of things like that. WoW is a video game -- if you've stopped having fun playing with a group of people, you're entitled ...

Re: 6.1 Discussion

Holy shit, I'm doing so much more dps now. 45k on tectus, 45k on twin ogron, 40k on ko'ragh. So hyped to parse on heroic brf tonight, especially Gruul and oregorger.

Fortunately, you should be in demand starting this Tuesday if you want to start looking for other guilds, because feral will be FOTM.

Re: 6.1 Discussion

According to a patchwerk sim, we're just 2000 dps short of arcane mage in 6.1 for second place on single target. http://www.simulationcraft.org/reports/Raid_T17M.html

And with the 20% buff to thrash, we'll also be pulling considerably more dps on cleave and aoe fights than we do now.

Re: 6.1 Discussion

I disagree. It seems like the devs want us strong on single target, but even after the buffs I doubt that any Feral has a chance against equally skilled and geared Arcane Mage. We might have a chance against Hunters, Rogues and Warriors, but we'll have to wait until next week to find out. I mean, I...

Re: Is feral being ignored?

Everyone keeps asking for a re-design, but I'd be fine with being a single target niche class so long as we have top tier single target damage. That's why I'm way more excited than a lot of you all seem to be about the upcoming buffs in 6.1, because we'll dominate the charts on fights like Gruul, an...

Im quite concerned to not see the Shred change as well - If they leave us with only those buffs the entire thing will end up being very minor difference from how the situation is now. Really hope it's still going to be there :/ Honestly, a 20% buff to shred would be overpowered. I'm already doing 4...

Re: Can't figure out which trinkets to use

My real conundrum at this point is whether to use Beating Heart 665 or LDSC 665. As you said, LDSC is more burst, but Beating Heart is clearly the better option for longer fights (150 crit versus 280 agi). Maybe I'll try sims.

This is a really good idea, I'm surprised _Cursor doesn't have this option. Would be better to just make the cursor the same as the default WoW cursor though, instead of white.

I recently got the 680 Blackiron Trigger off heroic Blackhand, and I'm trying to figure out now which trinkets I should use along with the Trigger to maximize my dps on different BRF encounters. My dps is so variable on the target dummies that I'm going to need some math to help me make my decision....

Re: Another DPS spec that a feral player might enjoy?

don't think I'd want to play an 600 APM spec. Feral does take a lot of skill to play optimally, but it's actually one of the lowest specs APM-wise in the game. You spend 50% of your time not hitting any buttons. That's why I like feral so much as a guy who has bad muscle memory -- it's all slow-pac...

Re: Good DPS?

The most important part of improving your feral dps is improving your savage roar and bloodtaloned bleed uptimes. Bleeds are ~ 40% of our dps, melee auto-attack is also a significant portion of our dps, and savage roar is +40% physical damage. Once you get those down, you're about 75% of the way tow...

A flat ~8% dps boost is pretty significant. I think that catapults us to best single target melee dps.

Re: Why is my damage so high despite the MANY mistakes?

Depending on your trinket procs, it could actually be a dps increase to sacrifice some rip uptime to get off a couple of guaranteed crit ferocious bite, such as if your skull of war or blackiron trigger procs. I've seen a lot of good feral parses on heroic and mythic butcher with a rip uptime of ~90...
