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've recently talked a lot about the strange occurrences that happened on the US Khadgar server when it  failed a realm connection, as many players had their accounts set back to around Mists of Pandaria, and the subsequent restoration of said accounts. Popular YouTuber MadSeasonShow was one of the ones affected and has made a video going through what happened after his character restoration, including additional potential issues with the restorations.
      As you'll remember, while characters were brought back to their current levels, the old copies of those characters (if they existed in MoP) were left on the accounts, so players had doubles. The thing is, some of these characters could have very valuable items that were since either lost, deleted or sold, and could potentially even re-sell them, and as MadSeason mentions, there could be some REALLY valuable stuff in there like the TCG mounts or similar. In any case, check out the video for a quick overview of the whole situation:
      And, because it's pretty funny, here's the original video from when the characters simply vanished/were deleveled and no one was sure what was going on:
      Khadgar's troubles potentially aren't over yet, as the failed realm connections are coming up again tomorrow, so let's see what happens this time!

      Monks are a class that did not receive many changes on the Shadowlands Beta until very late in the cycle. We're checking out the latest round of Monk changes, one month ahead of Shadowlands release.
      Highlights
      Energizing Elixir has been removed from the global cooldown. Blizzard is aware of balance concerns Windwalker Monks have about dual-wield and Two-Handed weapons, and they are considering different options to address the problem, but they've got nothing to share at this time.  They are also aware of bugs related to Storm, Earth, and Fire in relation to other spells. They are looking to improve the reliability of the ability in future Beta builds. Weapons of Order (Kyrian Covenant Ability) has been redesigned for WW Monks. Multiple Legendary Powers have been tweaked. Monk
      Faeline Stomp (Night Fae Covenant Ability) now deals damage (or heals if Mistweaver) to targets in front of the Monk when cast and continues to deal damage to targets caught in the Faelines. Spinning Crane Kick now caps at 6 unique targets (was 5), dealing up to 60% damage (was 50%). Weapons of Order (Kyrian Covenant Ability) Brewmaster: For the next 30 seconds, your Mastery is increased by 10%. Additionally, Keg Smash cooldown is reset instantly and enemies hit by the ability take 5% increased damage from you for 8 seconds, stacking up to 5 times; Mistweaver: For the next 30 seconds, your Mastery is increased by 10%. Additionally, Essence Font cooldown is reset instantly and heals up to 6 nearby allies for (30% of Spell Power) Health on channel start and end; Windwalker: For the next 30 seconds, your Mastery is increased by 10% 13%. Additionally, Rising Sun Kick cooldown is reset instantly and your Rising Sun Kick reduces the cost of your Chi Abilities by 1 for 5 seconds, and Blackout Kick reduces the cooldown of affected abilities by an additional 1 second. Mistweaver
      Ancient Teachings of the Monastery (Legendary Power) - Your Tiger Palm, Blackout Kick, and Rising Sun Kick heal an injured ally within 20 yards for 120% of the damage done to an injured ally within 20 yards. Enveloping Breath - While active, Yu'lon and Chi'Ji heal nearby targets with Enveloping Breath when you cast Enveloping Mist, healing for [ 30% 180% of Spell Power ] over 6 sec, and increasing the healing they receive from you by 10%. Tear of Morning (Legendary Power) - Renewing Mist applies Extended Life to the initial target, instantly healing them for 145% of Holy Spell Power and increasing all healing done to them increases your healing done to the target by 15% for 12 seconds. When you heal with Enveloping Mist or Vivify, 50% of the heal is also applied to targets within your Extend Life effect. 25% of your Enveloping Mist and Vivify healing is also applied to all targets with Tear of Morning. Windwalker
      Haste now affects the periodic of Crackling Tiger Lightning. Energizing Elixir (Level 45 Talent) has been moved off the global cooldown. Blizzard has fixed a bug where Rising Sun Kick and Whirling Dragon Punch weren't contributing to Xuen's Empowered Tiger Lightning. Rising Sun Kick (Rank 2) restored. Increases the damage of Rising Sun Kick by 70%.
    • By Stan
      The latest Mage class changes from Shadowlands Beta revolve around Venthyr Covenant Ability and Legendary Power tuning.
      Mage
      Mirrors of Torment has been updated to grant you Brain Freeze, Fire Blast cooldown reduction, or Mana when a mirror is consumed, based on your current specialization. It can now proc from auto-attacks, but can only occur once every 6 seconds.
      Mirrors of Torment (Venthyr Covenant Ability) Arcane: Conjures 3 mirrors to torment the enemy for 20 25 seconds. Whenever the target attacks, casts a spell or ability, a mirror is consumed to inflict (75% 60% of Spell Power) Shadow damage and their movement and cast speed are slowed by 15%. The final mirror will instead inflict (198% 151% of Spell Power) Shadow damage to the enemy, Rooting and Silencing them for 4 seconds. Whenever a mirror is consumed, you gain 4% mana. Fire: Arcane: Conjures 3 mirrors to torment the enemy for 20 25 seconds. Whenever the target attacks, casts a spell or ability, a mirror is consumed to inflict (75% 60% of Spell Power) Shadow damage and their movement and cast speed are slowed by 15%. The final mirror will instead inflict (198% 151% of Spell Power) Shadow damage to the enemy, Rooting and Silencing them for 4 seconds. Whenever a mirror is consumed your Fire Blast cooldown is reduced by 4 seconds. Frost: Arcane: Conjures 3 mirrors to torment the enemy for 20 25 seconds. Whenever the target attacks, casts a spell or ability, a mirror is consumed to inflict (75% 60% of Spell Power) Shadow damage and their movement and cast speed are slowed by 15%. The final mirror will instead inflict (198% 151% of Spell Power) Shadow damage to the enemy, Rooting and Silencing them for 4 seconds. Whenever a mirror is consumed you gain Brain Freeze. Fire
      Fevered Incantation (Legendary Power) - Each consecutive Critical Strike you deal increases Critical Strike damage you deal by 2% up to 10%.

      He's at it again... This time around it's a ridiculous amount of healing, but only outside of Kul Tiras and Zandalar, and only for Alliance players. The main ingredient for this particular crazy stunt is the Gently Squeezed Toad, which you can summon every few seconds, then attack for over a million damage due to the damage aura that makes you deal more damage to low level mobs. And that's it, you just need some amount of leech to get crazy healing very often, with 500K individual heals and around 50-60K HPS with about 30% leech in Rextroy's specific example! The only problem is, this only works for Alliance, as the toy is only sold by Old Loola in the WoD Ally garrison and is BoP, so Horde need not apply.

      Check out the full video for the details, especially focusing on the World PvP uses:
