Welle i recently got two New items Since i Posted my simmed Priority so it most likely Changed.

But Would you reccommend following the simmed stat priority You posted above Or stay with the priority in the guide?

Thank You beforehand.

For general users, I would say use the guide. For you, use the one I put in the comment, but only for your next piece of gear. After that next upgrade, you will swap priorities again.

Can anyone create an instructional video of the moonfire, savage roar rotation? I feel like if there were a video of someone on a raid boss dummy and they highlighted the opening sequence slow enough and go ability by ability that it would be a tremendous amount of help! If someone knows of a video that does this already please share it with me. I myself have searched for one and none of the rotation videos I find aren't detailed enough.

Another thing I think could help would be the optimal location to put the abilities on the action bar. I realize that is going to be mainly a preference, however I do think that some action bar setups for this rotation could help instead of being unorganized which I feel like mine is.

I am really into raiding and want to be able to put out closer to 250k dps rather than 210k. My ilvl is 861 so any insight into what was mentioned above I would really appreciate it.

Hi guys, two quick questions!

 

1.

This is my first xpac that I've really seriously played feral, and for the last 8 years or so I've heard that feral scales poorly.

That feral absolutely wreaks havoc at the beginning of an xpac, but becomes mediocre at best at the latter part.

Is that really true? And if so, why is that?

 

2.

When using tiger's fury, which is more important, not to waste energy or to use it to buff your upcoming rake/rip?

For instance, if;

- My TF is off cooldown

- I have 5 CP

- My rip is about to fall off

- But my energy is about 80

In this situation, do I either 1)  just use TF to empower my rip even it means wasting energy, or 2) rip without TF and use TF under 20 energy?

For the video, I'm not sure I can help, but in regards to keybinds: I think it's a lot more personal than you think. This is my setup:

ESDF - Movement

1 - Savage Roar

2 - Moonfire

3 - Shred

4 - Rip

5 - Rake

6 - Ashamane's

Everything else is on Q,W,R,T,G,H,V,C,X,Z,A. I then use modifiers of shift and alt.

There's no way of telling if this is going to happen this expansion, unfortunately. We can't predict the nerfs/buffs that Blizzard are going to introduce. 

I believe in the past, it was due to the fact that stat interaction was dreadful. Omen of Clarity scaled awfully with Haste. You were forced into 2-hand weapons. There's a few factors and I honestly don't know them all for every expansion.

I'll be honest, I'm not sure how this situation comes about. You have a huge amount of downtime in the Feral rotation normally, so capping on energy should actually be very difficult. I'd TF to empower the rip anyway.

The goal is to have your rip empowered by BT and TF.  In this case, you're better off applying the 5 CP rip (which will proc Predatory Swiftness).  Build 4 combo points, cast healing touch (which will proc Blood Talons), then TF, apply rake (for 5th CP), then apply your 5 CP rake which is now fully empowered.

Sorry if this has been asked before.  When it says a rip relic is 10 ilvl better than a rake relic is that 10 ilvls of the relic or 10 ilvls added to the weapon?

The weapon item level boost, I believe.

In the Stat Prio list it mentioned, that if you are going to much into a stat it could , lets say ,worsen your actual DpS,

But what is the point of too much of a stat?

Currently I m running :

- 35 % Crit

- 16 % Haste 

- 63 % Mastery

And awesome 7 % avoidance. 

Is there even a point of having too much mastery ?

My stats are 

- 33% Crit (6415)

- 6% Haste (2000)

- 61% Mastery (7948)

- 3% Vers (1300)

I simulate my rotation on SimulationCraft and it returns this stats scale

Capture.PNG

I don't know if we can trust 100% but we can see that too much mastery make it less usefull than before. Crit still strong and i think there is a small cap of haste to reach after the mastery one but i don't really know the exact value of those caps.

What do you think?

The note is talking about the prospect of completely stacking Mastery, for example. Mastery and Crit alternate in regards to how useful they are, depending on the ratio between the stats. This means, if you completely ignore Crit to get Mastery through Mastery/Haste gear, your DPS will be lower than sacrificing some Mastery to get Crit.

It all depends on your own current gear levels. For you, Crit would now be more useful.

Well, funny thing is, that now I replaced both of my trinkets and a couple of other Items.

Now I am at 37 % Crit and 46 % Mastery. This comes mainly from the Mastery loss on my trinkets.

I replaced the"Devilsaur Bite Titanforged  " with the "Tempered Egg of Serpentrix ( with socket slot )".

Is this replacement even worth it ? How good is the procc of the Egg?

In the BiS list, the Egg is pretty far down the list.

On the other hand, pretty far up, there is a Mastery WQ item mentioned.

Which Item is meant by " Mastery WQ" ?

Tempered Egg in practice seems to perform worse than simulations, but that could be averages in play. When it comes to WQ Mastery -> This refers to a Mastery stat stick from World Quests.

Hello guys, what do you think of that opening sequence :

/dbm pull 10

1. Healing touch : 2 Bloodtalons

2. Cat form. ( no prowl )

3. Tank pulls ---- while you run toward melee range   >  Moonfire, moonfire, moonfire (until 5CP) (if you're lucky with crit, it'll cost 3 GCD, if not, it'll cost 5 at worst.)

4. Apply Savage roar 5CP, Berserk + Tiger Fury + use your trinkets.  at this point you'll have predator swiftness 10sec remaining and still two BT stacks

5. (Night elf only) Shadowmeld, put your stealth bonus 100% Rake, with 1 stack of bloodtalon(+50%), SR (+25%) and TF (+15%)

6. Ashamane Frenzy, depletes your 2nd bloodtalon (+50%), SR (+25%) and TF (15%)

7. instant Healing touch. At this point, if your rake critted you'll have 5CP, if not you'll have 4... if you have 4, use moonfire to have 5 and you want keep a bloodtalon stack, or use a Shred, but it'll use a BT stack... perso, I prefer moonfire, cause that 2 BT stack will be used to put a Rake when the stealth snapshot expires.

8. Rip 5CP (BT +50%, TF +15%, and SR+25%)

9. normal rotation...

 

What do you think ? I dont like the idea of SR at 1CP so i ended up finding my own pull, but I didn't use Sims to check if its better or something...

 

Sorry for my english, I hope it was understandable.

I thoroughly disagree with the start. Spamming moonfire as you run at the boss is simply pointless. You waste Energy to refresh a DoT that doesn't need refreshing. You can just leap at the boss and Rake from Prowl. Instantly more damage in like 1/5th of the time.

I use Icy Veins to know the stats to focus on but I use ask mr robot to weigh upgrades, I'm having a big issue right now. AMR recently changed their stat priority and it's very different from icy now.  Icy veins does not provide a weight break down (like saying crit is .63 and etc) so I can fix it to match. AMR also affects the pawn addon so now that is saying different stats too. Since icy hasnt updated im very confused and not sure what to do. If AMR is right that really sucks cause it is a huge change in stat priority. 

Can I get some help here.

Guest stat weighting wrong

Sim craft does not agree with the listed stat weighting for my 850 gear level using mostly crit/mastery on gear (by a significant amount). Quite annoying that I assumed crit mastery was still by deign since thats what drops, thats what this guide says.

This guide has not been updated for one month. The assumption back then was that Mastery will be king due to Rip & Ashamane's Rip being so strong. Current simulations tend to show a quite different picture. At the moment, it seems like you should have a good balance between all your secondary stats, rather than focusing on a main stat.  This opinion coincides with that of many other druids in the Feral Discord.

I've sim'ed my gear multiple times during the last day whenever one or more items changed and I've seen multiple stat weight shifts. First, when I heavily stacked Mastery, the weight for Mastery dropped pretty hard and was below everything else. My "best" stat was Haste, later Crit, now at 869 it's Versatility (and Mastery is now on the 3rd place, followed by Haste).

So focus primarily on higher itemlevels and a good stat diversity and sim your gear regularly.

Pretty sure its just to get the rake buff as it applies out of stealth.

      We know that Blizzard wants to replace Titanforging in Patch 8.3 with something more "twisted and corrupt". We datamined corrupted items that will be cleansed of their negative effects in Visions of N'Zoth and it seems we will also be able to alter them somehow.
      Corrupted Rings
      When Patch 8.3 became available for testing on the Public Test Realms, we reported about corrupted rings with various kiss/curse effects. What that means is they come both with a positive and negative (annoying) effect, as highlighted below:
      Corrupted Ring - Face the Truth Corrupted Ring - Last Grasp Corrupted Ring - Masochistic Corrupted Ring - Mesmerizing Corrupted Ring - Overconfident Corrupted Ring - Revel in Violence Corrupted Ring - Spontaneous Fury Corrupted Ring - Thing From Beyond Datamining suggests that we will be able to clear these items off corruption and get rid of their negative effects using a new currency from Assaults called Echoes of Oblivion.
      Echoes of Oblivion - Coalesced void essence found in and around areas touched by the Visions of N'zoth. The Rajani, Uldum Accord, and Blacktalon are all willing to barter for rare and powerful items, as well as using them to clear or alter cursed items.
      Assets
      We found the following assets associated with cursed items in the game files:

      Corrupted Cleanse Reforger

      Corrupted Character Sheet

      Corrupted Inventory Icon

      Corrupted Tooltip

      Tooltip Border Corrupted

      Tooltip Background Corrupted
      It seems we will be able to cleanse cursed items at the Chamber of Heart and MOTHER will play some role here. We have no idea how we'll be able to alter the cursed items yet, though.
      If we're going to be using Echoes of Oblivion or another currency to increase the power of items, it sounds like Reforging may be back in one way or another.
      Check out our Patch 8.3 Content Hub for the latest Visions of N'Zoth news!
    • By Stan
      Visions of N'Zoth is Battle for Azeroth's final major content patch, where we take the battle to N'Zoth himself and visit Ny'alotha. Our hub covers everything you need to know about Patch 8.3 and helps you stay on track if you haven't been playing the game for a while.
      Patch 8.3 Release Date
      While nothing has been officially confirmed, we think the patch is going to hit live servers on December 2019. Datamined sound files suggest that Ny'alotha, the Waking City raid, might be delayed until Patch 8.3.5 and not open immediately when Visions of N'Zoth goes live, which would delay the new Mythic+ Season as well.
      Game Director Ion Hazzikostas talked about Visions of N'Zoth in the latest Content Preview on October 7. We learned pretty much everything about the new patch, and in the following section, you're going to find its main features:
      Assaults
      Invasions return to the game once more, and this time, they're called Assaults. The Vale of Eternal Blossoms and Uldum will be periodically under assault by N'Zoth's forces, and your goal is to drive them back by completing quests and interacting with various objectives to complete the "emissary." Blizzard uses technology and everything they've learned from Mechagon and Nazjatar in this new iteration of Assaults to ensure dynamic replayability. Assaults are mandatory if you want to enter Horrific Visions.
      Initial Preview of Assaults in Visions of N'Zoth Horrific Visions
      Described as alternate realities where N'Zoth's power is ascendant, these are 1-5 player "scenarios" of Stormwind and Orgrimmar, where you need to complete various objectives for rewards. Horrific Visions revolve around a new mechanic called Sanity, which starts draining as soon as you enter a Horrific Vision. Your goal is to complete as many side objectives as possible and defeating the mini-boss before your Sanity is completely depleted.
      To help you with that, we've got Wrathion with a new Legendary Cloak and a Titanic Research Tree for Horrific Visions with perks that gradually trivialize the feature.
      Ny'alotha, the Waking City
      We will be facing N'Zoth in Ny'alotha, the new twelve-boss raid located in Uldum. It comes with a raid skip quest after you defeat the first boss and new sets up for grabs:
      Ny'alotha Cloth Sets Preview Ny'alotha Leather Sets Preview Ny'alotha Mail Sets Preview Ny'alotha Plate Sets Preview We've also covered the continuation of the story in Patch 8.3 and what happens in the raid in the articles below:
      New Forsaken Leadership in Patch 8.3 (Spoilers) Azshara's Bargain and the Key to Defeating N'Zoth (Spoilers) I'lgynoth's Whispers in Patch 8.3 (Analysis) N'Zoth's in-game model has been updated multiple times.
      Rewards Updates
      Visions of N'Zoth comes with two new factions, six new Essences, a brand new Mythic Season, a new Seasonal affix, Profession updates, and more that we'll cover soon.
      Heart of Azeroth will have a new Minor slot, two Stamina nodes, the maximum level increased to 85 (was 70). Coming in a later PTR update, Blizzard will be adding an infinite progression slot to aid you against N'Zoth's corruption at max level (whatever that means).
      New Allied Races: Vulpera & Mechagnomes
      Another pair of Allied Races will become available in Visions of N'Zoth. Alliance players will be able to recruit Mechagnomes, and their Horde counterpart are the Vulpera of Vol'dun.
      Official Mechagnomes & Vulpera Preview Mechagnomes & Vulpera Racials Mechagnomes & Vulpera Unlock Requirements Vulpera Heritage Armor Preview Mechagnome Heritage Armor Preview Mechagnome & Vulpera Dance Animations Vulpera Tidbits: Racial Mount, Shaman Totems, Hunter Pet New Heritage Armor: Goblins & Worgen
      Goblins and Worgen received new models and animations in Patch 8.2.5, but no Heritage Armor, which is added in Patch 8.3.
      Goblin & Worgen Heritage Armor Sets Preview Auction House Overhaul
      The Auction House will be completely revamped. No more lag caused by the system being clogged with single stacks. Stackable items are no longer purchased or sold in stacks; copper is no longer displayed in the Auction House, but used for calculations. If you regularly forget the name of goods, you can create a shopping list, and more!
      Auction House Revamp Preview The Removal of Titanforging
      Ion teased the removal of Titanforging in Patch 8.3 through something more "twisted and corrupt." We found some interesting Corrupted Rings from Ny'alotha with various Kiss/Curse Effects. Based on datamining and game assets, it seems we will be able to cleanse and alter them somehow.
      Are Cursed Items the Alternative to Titanforging? Class Changes
      No patch would be complete without some class changes, and you can find all class changes planned for Visions of N'Zoth here.
      Allied Race & Pandaren Death Knights
      We found encrypted sound files of Bolvar and Mograine together with Death Knight creature textures for Allied Races and the Pandaren, and new Death Knight Swords of the Ebon Blade.
      We think Allied Races and the Pandaren will be able to roll Death Knights in the near future, and there is at least a partial revamp of the Death Knight starting area planned now that Bolvar is the Lich King. Given that the files are encrypted, it's likely that this bit will be unveiled at this year's BlizzCon.
      New Mounts
      As usual, with every content update, multiple mounts are coming with placeholder descriptions, sources, and whatnot.
      Alpaca Mounts - Presumably, new reputation mounts available for purchase at Exalted. Chalcedony Cloud Serpent - A new recolor of the existing serpent, possibly tied to the Assault on Vale. N'Zoth Serpent - New Stormsong Valley Rare Mount from the Adherent of the Abyss. Aqir Flying Mount - Mythic N'Zoth mount, maybe? Ny'alotha Allseer - Ahead of the Curve reward? Island Expedition Vendors
      In Patch 8.3, you will be able to purchase Island-specific and Invasion-specific crates for Dubloons.
      New Dubloon Vendors Selling Island Expedition and Invasion Crates 3 New World Bosses
      Blizzard is adding three new world bosses to the game, which drop item level 445 loot.
      Miscellaneous
      Other minor things planned for Patch 8.3 include:
      A new PvP event where players can serve N'Zoth, similar to Talon's Vengeance. Heroic difficulty for the Darkshore Warfront. Division of Operation: Mechagon into two wings, each with Heroic and Mythic Keystone difficulties. Darkmoon Arcade, allowing you to play your favorite mini-games at the Darkmoon Faire. Deepwind Gorge updated to be a capture point map. New Battle Pets and Pet Battle Dungeon - Blackrock Depths. New Story Quests: Rie of N'Zoth ...and more! We'll be periodically updating this hub with more details!
      Vision of N'zoth is the final major content patch of BfA, and here's our hub with everything you need to know.
    • By Stan
      Here is a an updated blog post with all Class changes coming in Patch 8.3.
      Check out our Visions of N'Zoth Content Hub for more details!
      Blizzard (Source)
      In our next major content update, Visions of N’Zoth, we’re working on some tuning updates to a few specs that are under- and over-performing in various ways.
      Developers’ notes: Specs which excel at DoTs on multiple targets have, over the course of many tiers of content, generally had very high performance on the average. Their DPS advantage in raid encounters that play into their multi-target strength (which are relatively common) is not balanced by a comparable disadvantage in other areas. A small reduction in damage on these specs will leave them noticeably strong in the situations in which they’re strong (albeit slightly less than before), and give other specs more opportunity to stand out at other times. At the same time, a few of the Essences added in Rise of Azshara are not performing as well as we would have liked, so we’re increasing the effectiveness of some parts of them to help keep them competitive with the other Essences available.
      With the first build of the update on our Public Test Realm (PTR), you will see the following changes:
      Classes
      Druid Balance Moonfire damage and periodic damage reduced by 10%. Sunfire damage and periodic damage reduced by 10%. High Noon (Azerite Trait) damage increased by 11%. Power of the Moon (Azerite Trait) damage increased by 11%. Mage Frost Ice Lance damage increased by 20%. Developers’ note: Ice Lance damage hasn’t kept up with Icicles scaling, making builds that ignore Ice Lance possible. The intent of this change is to give Frost Mages a better incentive to use Ice Lance within their rotation, as a DPS net gain. Monk Brewmaster Stamina bonus reduced to 30% (was 35%). Stagger percentage reduced to 90% of Agility (was 105%). High Tolerance now increases the effectiveness of Stagger by 5% (was 8%). Developers’ notes: Brewmaster’s extremely high effective health against Physical damage meant that they are rarely in danger against spike damage that threatens other tanks. This should still be a strength of Brewmaster, but not by such a wide margin. Fixed a bug causing Gift of the Ox orbs to spawn too often for players with high amounts of Stamina. Mistweaver Rising Mist healing increased 30%, and now extends Heal-over-time effects by 3 seconds (was 2 seconds). [Coming in a future PTR build] Developers’ note: This talent is currently overshadowed on its row, and we want to make sure it’s competitive enough to make its unique playstyle a viable option. Life Cocoon now absorbs for 55% of the caster’s maximum health (was 1100% of the caster’s spellpower). [Coming in a future PTR build] Developers’ note: This ability had gotten weaker compared to player health pools since the start of the expansion, and this will help it better maintain its value. Windwalker Rising Sun Kick damage increased by 25%. Blackout Kick damage increased by 10%. Developers’ note: These changes are intended to help Windwalkers perform better in single-target fights. Paladin Holy Glimmer of Light (Azerite Trait) may now be applied to a maximum of 8 targets. Developers’ notes: Over the past year, builds centered around this trait have steadily pulled ahead of all other Holy Paladin playstyles, and to some extent all other healers in high-end content. This change is meant to preserve the gameplay of the trait, but limit the ability to increase its value drastically by stacking every possible bonus that reduces Holy Shock cooldown. Priest Discipline Atonement healing reduced to 50% (was 55%). Mastery: Grace effectiveness increased by 12%. Developers’ notes: Discipline’s ability to contribute both damage and healing is slightly too high for what one character can bring to a group composition. At the same time, we’re making their Mastery stat slightly more attractive. Schism now increases damage done from Priest spells and abilities only. Developers’ notes: This is intended to be consistent with other class cooldowns. Shadow Auspicious Spirits damage bonus reduced to 25% (was 50%). Fixed a bug causing Spiteful Apparitions (Azerite Trait) to be increased by 75% if you do not have Auspicious Spirits talented. Developers’ notes: The multiplicative interaction between Auspicious Spirits, Spiteful Apparitions, and Chorus of Insanity has specifically been a big part of Shadow’s damage scaling somewhat out of control at high target counts. Chorus of Insanity critical strike bonus reduced by 25%. Shadow Word: Pain damage reduced by 8%. Vampiric Touch damage reduced by 8%. Warlock Affliction Deathbolt now deals 20% of the total remaining damage of the Warlock’s damage over time effects on the target (was 30%). Developers’ note: Under certain conditions, Deathbolt provides a degree of single target burst damage that feels out of line for a spec designed around damage-over-time spells. Additionally, it has been the dominant choice for Affliction’s level 15 talent row for much of the expansion. We’re reducing its effectiveness to bring it more in line with the other two options in that row. Essences
      Worldvein Resonance Major rank 1, when used, now additionally causes you to gain +50% bonus to stats from Lifeblood Shards for 10 seconds. Vision of Perfection Proc rate increased by 12%. Unbound Force Major rank 1 damage increased by 40%. Minor rank 1 duration increased to 4 seconds (was 3 seconds). Minor rank 3 increase of duration increased to 2 seconds (was 1 second). Purification Protocol Major rank 1 damage increased by 15%. Major rank 2 now has the potential work on targets that are part of raid and dungeon encounters. Vitality Conduit We’ve rebuilt the way this Essences works, and it should be visually more impactful, as you will now see healing on your targets. As always, changes like these are a work in progress. We are likely to make further adjustments for testing throughout the PTR.
      Thank you very much for your testing and feedback!

      We're revisiting Pandaria in Patch 8.3, so Blizzard added a new soft pink recolor of the good old serpent mount to the game. The source of the mount is a placeholder and unknown for now.
      Chalcedony Cloud Serpent
      The gentle Chalcedony Cloud Serpents love to play in the petals that fall in the Arboretum, coloring their scales a soft pink hue.

      Hallow's End has arrived on live servers and there are no notable updates this year. The Headless Horseman's loot has been adjusted to item level 395. Check out our Hallow's End guide for more information about the event.
      Blizzard (Source)
      It’s time for Tricky Treats, costumes, and—of course—the return of the Headless Horseman during this year’s Hallow’s End!
      Hallow’s End celebrates the break of the Forsaken from the Scourge.
      Fun and mischief reign as the Innkeepers of Azeroth give treats, and tricks, to whomever asks.
      The spookiest time of year has arrived once more, and the Headless Horseman rides forth to strike terror into the hearts and minds of Azeroth’s citizens.
      When: October 18–November 1
      Where: Trick-or-Treat throughout the inns of Azeroth, Northrend, Pandaria, Outland, Draenor, and the Broken Isles (Dalaran) for tasty treats and currency to buy Hallow’s End delights.
      All together now! —the Headless Horseman is back to set fire to Razor Hill and Goldshire once more. You’ll need to lend a hand on the bucket brigade to put them out and face the infamous rider.
      It would be a lovely time of year to take a stroll through the Scarlet Monastery’s Graveyard if the Headless Horseman hadn’t decided to make it his new lair. If you're lucky and succeed in routing this menace from within, you may ride off with his steed.
      Throughout Hallow’s End, characters level 20-120 will be able to queue up for this ghoulish encounter in the Dungeon Finder.
      This year you’ll be able to exchange your Tricky Treats for a newly added 2018 toy:
      Headless Horseman's Hearthstone Head to Val’sharah to undertake a quest that begins with the Hag of the Crooked Tree in Bradensbrook. Follow the tale through to its culmination and you’ll receive some Tricky Treats and a chance of receiving one of four utterly bewitching hats.
      Hat of the First Sister Hat of the Second Sister Hat of the Third Sister Hat of the Youngest Sister ACHIEVEMENTS
      There are a total of 21 achievements that can be earned during this event. Completing the Meta-Achievement, Hallowed Be Thy Name, rewards the title: The Hallowed.
