Re: Patch 6.2 PTR Discussion

Stenhaldi, seeing as FB costs 25 and just consumes an additional 25 after the initial cast, the way it interacts with CC is how exactly? I thought it was initial cost reduced to 0, additional cost remained the same. If this is true, a full FB will generate 12 energy instead of 25, correct? That's c...

Re: Patch 6.2 PTR Discussion

The set bonuses are still pretty boring (just average DPS boosts with no real way to exploit them, unlike T17/T16/T15 bonuses), but that seems to be the case for a lot of specs in T18 so whatever. (Note that between the 2pc buff and 4pc nerf, you'll be able to pool to the same energy values as alway...

Re: Patch 6.2 PTR Discussion

Legendary ring makes it all the more important to have good AoE, because (a fraction of) the AoE damage you do while it's active gets duplicated as single target (and AoE) damage at the end. Means if you ever don't kill all of the adds within its 15 second duration, you're missing out on single targ...

Re: On use trinkets before pull

Trinkets take 30 seconds for the proc (or 'on use') to become available after equipping. 30 seconds for activated trinkets, but for proc trinkets it's just the ICD, whatever it is. For RPPM trinkets, that's typically 10 seconds. For Skull of War, it's 115 seconds. Either way, the buff fades when yo...

Re: Are ferals fine right now or still in need of a buff?

I always add /use 3 to the end of any mouseover macro. It tries to use your shoulder piece, which doesn't do anything except get rid of the "spellcasting" cursor if the mouseover was invalid for some reason. My healing touch is just #showtooltip Healing Touch /console autounshift 0 /cast [@mouseover...

Re: Blackrock Foundry - Hanz'gar and Franzok

You should still pool energy rather than dump it spamming moonfire. Just moonfire to keep from capping energy.

Re: Blackrock Foundry - Hanz'gar and Franzok

You should not swipe on this fight ever. I'll note that swipe has a longer range than shred, so back when I took bloodtalons (before the LI buff), I'd occasionally swipe if I was capping energy and couldn't get into melee range. Now that I take LI, though, I just use moonfire instead. Wouldn't thra...

Re: Are ferals fine right now or still in need of a buff?

Thogar: During progression, we had a significant number of wipes to not meeting an AoE DPS check during splits, especially if anything went wrong with a grip or one of the good AoE classes was dead/made a mistake. I always pooled resources to AoE as much as I could, and even sometimes had to use fer...

Re: Should soul of the forest be redesigned?

Soul of the Forest should grant 3 energy each time a bleed ticks (the original 2-piece). That way it maintains the flavor of "more energy", but does so in a way that is interesting and can be exploited to give the talent an edge in many scenarios. In exchange for losing the powerful burst single tar...

Re: Moonfire(feral) 20% dmg increase

If you're keeping Sorka away from the others (as we did), you're probably not planning to skip the third boat, in which case platform DPS doesn't matter at all (before the last phase): even during our progression (at level 687) we were stopping DPS halfway through the third boat. With the higher ite...

Re: recovering from a fail bt use

At level 700 I still encounter instances where I need to healing touch at 3 combo points. It's just luck: unless you have 40-50% haste, you can't guarantee 4 CP within 11 seconds starting at 0 energy. A high crit chance makes it probable (~87% chance at ~38% crit, counting clearcasts), but unless yo...

Re: recovering from a fail bt use

You usually want to bite (or use finishers in general) as late as you can so that you'll have more energy to recover 4 CP before the predatory swiftness expires. Moreover, with bite in particular, you usually want to make sure you're not using it prematurely when you could otherwise pool energy unti...

Re: Analyzing Predatory Swiftness in WCL

Ferocious Bite evidently triggers Predatory Swiftness twice.

You could filter type="applybuff" (example) to ignore refresh events -- it would filter out those double procs, but would also erroneously filter out cases where you might have cast a finisher while PS was still active.

Some remarks. Feral can solo a balcony wave on mythic with incarnation/berserk/nature's vigil. Actually just incarnation (without berserk) is usually enough, but I didn't want any chance of failing. You generally can't solo a group in less than 22 seconds, though, so you can't be going on every seco...
