Hello mates !

So , i recently started playing Wow-Mop ( i had to stop at Cataclysm pre-Dragon Soul ) , and i'm right now playing Feral Druid ( I was playig Mage at cataclysm ) and i reached lvl 90 like a month ago. I'm currently 492iLvl and my dps is ... horrible , i'm usually around 45k ( sometimes higher , sometimes even lower ) where as most of players in lfr's are between 80 and 100k for players with nearly the same iLvl . I've read a lot of guides , tried to improve myself and the dps rotation but no changes ...

My base rotation is : Faerie Fire + Savage Roar => Tigers Fury + Berserk + Berserking ( Troll Ability ) => Rake => Mangle/Shred until 5 combo points => Natures Swiftness Macro with a Healing Touch => Rip => Refresh Rake =>Mangle/Shred until 5 points => Savage Roar

I make sure to use Predatory Swiftness procs , refresh Faerie Fire debuff and use Tigers Fury/Berserk on cooldown

As you may see , a lot of items arent Enchanted , thats because i'm newly 90 and i've bought the 280% Flying skill so i'm actually pretty poor :D. But i dont feel like that would increase my dps that much ( Not saying i wont enchant my stuff :P , just that i dont feel like that's the main problem )

Thanks and i hope you guys can do something !

Hi,

Im a long term feral raider and might have a few tips that might help you improve.

So the most damage of the feral druids damage does comes from our bleeds right, so you want to make sure that you buff your bleeds as much as possible with dream of cenarius and tigers fury ect.

Just join a lfr and disable the dps meter and try to not to care about the dps too mouch.

Take it easy and dont spend all energy just as you get it, if youre energy wont cap you can wait for rake or trash to fall of before you use it.

have as mouch uptime on rip as possible and try to keep it as buffed as possible (always use natures swiftness on cd to activate dream of cenarius right before applying a new rip.

After the fight check how mouch dps you did and how try to think of ways to improve it the next time.

I hope this help you, if you have further questions feel free to send them to ivar.n.sorri@gmail.com

You start off using the berserk and tigers fury, when I start I get my savage roar up with my first five combo points and than use those. This way I am more effectively using berserk while its up. Its a powerful buff that shouldn't be wasted. Also by using some energy first you can use the 60 energy bonus from berserk. I also make sure to refresh rip after using tigers fury whenever possible. I don't now if you're doing it or not but you don't need to refresh you're bleeds unless they're about to end. So, spend some combo points on ferocious bite. Other than that I do the same as what you're doing. I usually do about 80k at the same ilvl.

Well thank both of you for your answers , it helped a lot ! I'm now around 55k ( so basicly won 10k , thats pretty awesome ! ) Maybe with my items fully enchanted & gemmed , i'd reach something correct !

By the way Ben , can i have a link to your armory ( or your caracter name ) please , so i can compare our stuffs , it may help :)

A good weapon makes a huge difference to Feral. When you get an upgrade to the 476 weapon, you'll notice it for sure. Spend your coins on Lei Shen to try to get that polearm and the Rune of Reorigination. Choose your talents - for your level 15 talent, if you don't want another button to press, take Feline Swiftness since it will increase your passive run speed. For level 45 talent take whatever, it doesn't matter. Level 60 talent should be Soul of the Forest for max DPS gain.

Enchant, gem and reforge your gear properly. Use Reforgelite or Ask Mr. Robot depending on your preferences. Dancing Steel, the Agility bracer enchant and the meta gem are expensive, but you're a Druid with a gathering skill. Go pick some herbs to pay for them. :D

I recommend to load a mod like Cat's Eye or Droodfocus to keep track of Weakened Armor, Rake, Rip, Thrash, your Savage Roar self-buff, and the Tiger's Fury cooldown. Feral has arguably the most difficult rotation of any class in WoW, so at least I need a little extra help to keep track of everything.

When I had the same weapon as you, I was typically doing 60k DPS single target. Now I can do 120k wearing my tank gear. The new stuff from ToT and the Shado-Pan Assault vendor is just so far ahead of the 5.1 raid gear.

      Who we are
      <Hollow> is a semi-hardcore guild created by a group of friends, experienced players, that raided HC together in WOTLK. We reunited and transfered to the same realm to create a guild, or more accurately, a home. We keep a very friendly environment in and out of raids, oftenly joining discord to chat even if we aren't doing anything. Guild activities include but are not limited to mythic dungeons, mythic + and raiding.
      Our goals
      Our current progress is 4/7M and 3/3HC. Our current goal is to down mythic EN to gear up and also prepare for Nighthold!
      What we are looking for
      Recruitment currently closed for Mythic raiding with the exception of 1 Shadow Priest.
      People that want only heroics can join regardless of specs. Socials are still welcome!
      Our raiding schedule
      Our current raiding schedule is 3 raids a week for 3 hours:

      Wednesday 8pm to 11pm server time - NH Normal
      Sunday 8pm to 11pm server time - EN Mythic
      Tuesday 8pm to 11pm server time - EN Heroic / ToV Heroic
      The guild is using DKP system
      NOTE: We have added a catch up system for new recruits. When you get past the trial phase and join the ranks as a raider of our guild, you also earn 200 dkp as bonus and when you prove yourself that you are worthy of a core spot, you also get 300 dkp as bonus. We wont leave anyone behind no matter how new while at the same time, drawing a line for our core, active raiders that have been with us since the start.

      Hey yall! so i'm writing this because i just want to undesrtand something. my friend and i compared numbers today because we are both shadow priests albeit i have a higher ilvl than he does maybe by around 7 im sitting at 863 . 
      what happend was during the last fight we decided to do the same -ish rotations meaing we both had vamp touch and shadow pain up on the same boss at all times.
      at the end of the fight i found something odd,
      his vamp touch dealt 4.99m dmg with max hit at 315 and minimum 
      mine only dealt 3.71 with max hit at 335 but take this in, minimum hit at 17k LOLLL
      another thing that got my attention
      his max hit on mind blast was 512 k, while mine was only at 281k.
      his crit and mastery stands at 20% and 40%, mine at 24% and 42%
      his haste stands at 27 and mine stands at 24
      can anyone explain this? at all? does it make any sense at all LOL

      Hi experts,
      I started with healing again in raids and mythics(+) and I followed the advice here to go for Int/haste first. it would be very nice if someone would tale the time to look at my equipment:
      http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/character/Area-52/Vandara/advanced
      and let me know if you have any hints for me if I should change my stats priority/enchantments etc. I think I could need a bigger Mana pool also.
      I just joined a hc raid group as a heal and I was not doing too bad, however I'd like to get better :-) Thank you so much for your help, it is really appreciated.
