Shifting to Bear for better AoE?

Post by Whitepaw » Tue Oct 04, 2016 6:27 pm

Is there any scenario where changing to Bear could be viable for a Feral, in order to do more AoE dps?

Like fx when Feral has done Thrash and 2xSwipe and is now energy starved - shifts to Bear to continue swiping in Bear. While in Bear, regens energy - back to cat to use that energy again.

Reason I ask is because I just did some target dummy practice, and Bear AoE wins when energy starved.

I thought they got rid of the thing where energy used to keep regenning when out of cat form . . . no?

Energy always regenerates - Rage always degenerates.

So, if I leave cat form, the energy will regenerate. I can then spam Swipe in bear form, as that is only on the global cooldown. In fact, it generates rage in bear form!

This is not something I would recommend. I'm pretty sure it's not currently viable, but if you recall the last time it was, it was nerfed shortly after. They don't want us to do this, and if it becomes known it is a dps up they will nerf it back down.
