Now...I only really did cat in WotLK in 25M raids, cause I tanked our 10m. However, I was always in the top 3 DPS (usually top on saurafang, or w/e his name was, the tank & spank for melee). I only did maybe 2-3 10M raid weeks in cata DS as cat (until I had to switch back to tank so we could progress), and that did seem easy, and I was at or near the top with no reading or catching up on things.In our minds, the Lich King Feral rotation was too complex. We think we made it too simple in Cataclysm. The change is intended to strike a balance between the two.
I started tanking in MoP but we changed roles cause everybody was doing the same thing for 2-3 years, and we were getting bored. So... at first I just did the basic stuff we did in wrath...keep SR up, keep rip and rake up, use your 2 CDs, etc. And my DPS was horrible, so bad that after that first week I almost forced the monk to go DPS and I was gonna go back to tanking. Luckily I found you guys and got it straightened out and am still improving. But that's just it. It's been a month, and I play a lot (of course we only raid 2x / week) but I do LFRs, sit on dummys, etc. I still am far from mastering it, and still 2-3k behind my sim on a tank & spank like Feng / Garagal(?) if you don't enter spirit realm.
Is this blue post ridiculous to anybody else? Or was I just away that long that the rotation is just ridiculous now? It seems like entire WotLK rotation being perfect is only the very starting building block for MoP rotation. Now we weave in HTs, and NS/HT for rip, and haste no longer affects bleeds, so energy regen is much more of a concern than WotLK. Please either someone tell me I'm crazy, or tell me this blue is lying to us. Because it's been a month - 1.5 months and I still have trouble perfecting the rotation.
