Re: Hellfire Citadel - Kormrok

Do you want to pop berserk off the bat when you can save it for grasping hands instead? Getting in a thrash and 4 or 5 swipes is a pretty substantial amount of damage.

Re: Hellfire Citadel - Hellfire High Council

This is a multi-dotter's wet dream. Just rake + rip + thrash all the things. When the blademaster does his mirror image thing, we're less useful here than boomkins, but it still might be beneficial to pop dash and just run around raking and thrashing. Stack mastery gear for sure.

Re: Hellfire Citadel - Hellfire Assault

You're going to want to be the one that runs ammunition. This fight is just gross for feral. If you really want to maximize damage, I'd suggest focusing on the warlocks and fel orcs... the smaller guys die too quick to burst aoe.

Re: Hellfire Citadel - Shadow-Lord Iskar

Feral is great for this fight (heroic). During transition phases, make sure to tab rake and use bloodtalons on rips + thrash. The adds are very long lived, so you can rack up top damage with good multi-target cleave. However, mythic might require you to focus priest add a little harder than in heroi...

Re: Hellfire Citadel - Gorefiend

When the Feast of Souls phase is ending it can be better to bite than reapply Rip to maximize benefit from the vulnerability. Seed of Creation will be clearly the best trinket for this fight. Its also likely that 4pT17 is superior to 4pT18 (especially when using Seed) even at a significant item lev...

Re: Hellfire Citadel - Tyrant Velhari

I was able to parse very high on our first heroic Tyrant kill because the fight lasted for 6 min 30s, which meant I got a final set of cooldowns in her p3 burn phase while she takes an additional 100%+ damage. However, once you have her on farm, she'll drop to around a 5 minute kill, which means you...

Re: RIP my feral spec

Yeah a lot of the fights are really great for us. I did top dps on heroic Tyrant because the 100% additional damage in the final phase lines up with our cooldowns, and our 2 target cleave is amazing. We are also really good for Gorefiend because we can line up our 3 minute cooldowns with the burn ph...

Re: RIP my feral spec

Yeah nevermind, after watching Poli decimate most of the raid I decided to switch back to feral. The fights aren't bad for feral at all imo, at least not in heroic. Can't stand boomkin, it's gross.

RIP my feral spec

Anyone else with a guardian or resto offspec playing boomkin for progression? When I respecced my feral spec to guardian, I felt like a part of me died.

Carry on the feral legacy, boys. God speed.

Re: Patch 6.2 PTR Discussion

If you're at 5 cp and haven't popped healing touch yet, and you get a clearcasting proc, you'll probably want to healing touch then use the clearcast proc on thrash. Ferocious bite is only 25 energy, so it'll only be a 50 energy gain as opposed to 100 with thrash.

Re: Blizzard just nerfed our t18 2pc on the PTR

I recognize those numbers as 4 target cleave. Which (a) doesn't match any actual scenarios in HFC, and (b) isn't very helpful, it's the ST gains that matter.

Re: How would you rework Feral Druids?

Well yeah, but it still varies enough that it feels like you don't have much control over it. On Gruul my dps ranges from 49k with really bad RNG to 58k with really good RNG, with optimal uptimes and no change in playstyle. Not the sort of swings you see on ret pally or fire mage, but it's still a d...

Re: How would you rework Feral Druids?

Yeah, dps right now almost entirely relies on how lucky you get on ferocious bite and shred crits. There's a sizeable amount of variance that's completely RNG. It's nowhere near as bad as some other specs, but it would be a lot less if our damage were more bleed based, like most of the feral communi...

Re: Blizzard just nerfed our t18 2pc on the PTR

Blizzard gave me hope that they'd do another balance pass soon by stating that they would balance specializations separately from set bonuses, so hopefully they do something about the dps balance before guilds stack all mages.

Omen of Clarity frequency increase nerfed from 135% to 90%.

We ask for Blizzard to change our energy-capped playstyle in 6.2, Blizzard responds by nerfing our asses. Looks like our awareness campaign on the PTR forums backfired, lol.

Also, Fury Warrior now FOTM? RIP.

Re: How would you rework Feral Druids?

One idea I've had since they separated feral into feral cat and guardian specs is to make feral bear form the AoE form, and to give bear form more interesting abilities that make our AoE playstyle more than just thrash+swipe spam. While cat form can remain the single target damage form (in fact, rem...

Yup, that's when you rake them. You're only going to get aggro on the big wolf if your tank isn't doing his job.

Re: 6.2 Feral Sims?

I also question when DKs have similar or better single target than Ferals for the same reason. Yep, Death Knight does substantially more single target damage than Feral, while having much stronger and equally cheap AoE and the ability to instantly shift their damage to a new target. They outclass e...

They need change Capacitor to "explode" on next attack after proc fade, to be more realiable in situations when you have move away from targets. I would prefer it be an on-use trinket, not having a good on-use trinket for progression sucks. Same. Also, making it explode on next attack would create ...

Re: 6.2 Feral Sims?

Feral has a few advantages over balance, even if balance matches feral's ST. They're more mobile, they arguably have the best 15 sec cooldown interrupt in the game, they still have higher burst damage potential than balance, they're more survivable, and they have better offhealing. Also, I think the...

If you really want to just maximize AOE-damage on the wolves, you dont even need to pop Incarnation on them, just berserk and pot and swipe them down.
