I don't think I can help with this one, since I'm not a feral player, but hopefully someone can help out with this. Do you have any figures to go on or just the stat priority?

Pretty much just the stat priority :(

Ah, that sucks. I'm really sorry that I can't help with this one, but hopefully someone can! It seems people are phasing away from the specific weights and instead just gearing with priorities.

I believe you CAN get your own weights from Simcraft, but I'm not well versed enough in simming to do it for you, sorry! Might be worth taking a look into it, anyway.

Noxxic has stat weights for Feral Druids!

I use them, but I am not 100% confident that they are actually accurate, so use with caution. Better than nothing, however. You can use these with addons like "Pawn", to get specifics on upgrades or swapping gear. Let me post them for you below.
 

Stat priority:

Agility > Crit > Versatility > Mastery > Haste

 

Stat weights:

Agility [12.07] > Crit [10.57] > Versatility [9.07] > Mastery [7.57] > Haste [6.07]

 

Pawn string (Addon; copy and paste into it if you have it installed):

( Pawn: v1: "PvE-Druid-Feral-Noxxic": CritRating=10.57, MasteryRating=7.57, Agility=12.07, HasteRating=6.07, Versatility=9.07 )

The problem with these weights is that, according to our priority, their priority is wrong.

That so? Please, allow yourself to explain :)

 

EDIT: They changed the stats a mere day ago, and Blainie must've been salty over me pointing out his previous inaccuracy.

New stats are as follows:

  1. Agility;
  2. Mastery;
  3. Critical Strike;
  4. Versatility;
  5. Haste.

 

EDIT 2:

Did some Simcrafting earlier

T19 Feral Druid DPS with 2 major traits, being Ashmane's Bite & Open Wounds

Agi     Mastery    Vers    Crit    Haste    Wdps
12.90    7.98       7.85    7.84    6.96       6.50

 

Ranking (Priorities):     Agi > Mastery ~= Vers ~= Crit > Haste ~= Wdps

Pawn string:  ( Pawn: v1: "Druid_Feral_T19P": Agility=12.90, CritRating=7.84, HasteRating=6.96, MasteryRating=7.98, Versatility=7.85, Dps=6.50 )

 

These are the talents used, which seem to be the ones working best right now. Mind you that some of them are purely out of personal preference.

I'm confused. Who changed their stats? If you mean us at Icy Veins, then yes, we change the stats frequently to ensure they are up-to-date.

I'm not sure where you get the image that I am salty from - I am doing my job by simply responding to you and stating that our priority did not match the one you listed. I am not a feral player, nor have I ever stated I am one. I am simply referring you to our site which is written and maintained by people who are top ferals.

As for your simulation, thanks for your contribution to the IV community. I'm sure it will come in handy for someone. Glad to see that you are so eager to help us with your own work. I'm sure you can agree that your sims are rather different from the weights you posted before, which I did say were wrong.

Don't get too excited, but I will be replying to 2 of your comments in a short space of time. See you in the other thread!

Ok, so I have always been a little confused by the commonly vetted stat weights for feral druid.

As I have seen in multiple places, it goes as follows. Agi>Mastery>Veratility>Critical strike>Haste

From rough calculations, the percentage return of each stat per 1000 points is as follows

5% Mastery per 1000 points (increases damage of bleeds. I.e Rake and Rip)

2.5% Critical strike per 1000 points (doubles damage and combo points received on critical strikes)

2% Blanket damage increase 1000 points of versatility (blanket damage increase with half as much damage influx reduction)

 

So given that by my logs over the last few weeks of raiding, 52% of my damage is through bleeds, and that through a passive, you gain double combo points for critical strikes. How is it that versatility, which in terms of raw damage (not counting the damage reduction), which builds slower than the 2 other stats, as well as having no synergy with any other spells rank so high on weights?

Also is there a soft min/max ammount of crit so that when using savage roar, you can effectively build enough combo points to keep all bleeds (buffed as much as possible through tiger's fury) and savage roar up 100%

 

TL;DR I apologise for the 10kk word essay, but I dont usually post in forums and therefore am not great at trimming the fat whilst still asking the right questions.

I have some great news for you! You've been gravely misinformed of your stat priority, only Agi and Mastery are in their correct places which means that if you've been focusing on getting versatility on your gear, you have an easy road ahead of you because literally any stat you replace it with will be a major upgrade for you.

As a cat, your stat priority and weights of each stat for 7.1.5 (January 10th 2017) are as follows:

  1. Agility: [12.05]
  2. Mastery: [10.55]
  3. Critical Strike: [9.05]
  4. Haste: [7.55]
  5. Versatility: [6.05]

So rest assured, your suspicions are 100% correct, versatility is hot garbage for us as it has been throughout Legion.

As for your Savage Roar question, this is a lot more of a loaded question than i believe you're suspecting. While a goal is to maintain a 100% uptime for Savage Roar, this should be a secondary goal to maintaining a 100% Rip/Rake uptime with your +DMG buffs loaded up and ready to go. As far as i'm aware, Feral is the only remaining snapshot class in WoW (maybe DH but i don't know them well enough to say for sure). What this means is even if you only use 1 CP for Savage Roar and it's active for only 3 seconds, that's enough time for you to add a 25% damage buff to Rake and Rip for their full durations. Clever snapshotting is where the vast majority of your damage comes from. Ashamane's Rip procs are also based off your currently applied Rip, meaning you lose 0 damage from it if it procs and Savage Roar is down-- but you will lose damage if Savage Roar wasn't up when you applied your Rip even if you have Savage Roar up when Ashamane's Rip procs.

So to reiterate, snapshot damage is reliant on what buffs you have up at the time you're applying your dots.

  • Berserk [+15% DMG]
  • Tiger's Fury [+15% DMG]
  • Savage Roar  [+25% DMG]
  • Bloodtalons [+50% DMG]
  • Prowl/Shadowmeld/Incarnation [+100% DMG on Rake]
    • Rip Maximum Bonus: +105% DMG
    • Rake Maximum Bonus: +205% DMG

In layman's terms, you want to have as high a +DMG% as possible for every instance where it's time to refresh your bleeds. If you're rolling with Bloodtalons as a talent, never refresh a dot without it up. An important thing to consider is that the [+50% DMG] from Bloodtalons is only 5% lower than the combined [+55% DMG] from Berserk (15%), Tiger's Fury (15%) and Savage Roar (25%) combined

** Keep in mind though that if you do choose to refresh SR at less than 5 CPs, without Ailuro Pouncers [http://www.wowdb.com/items/137024] you run a very real risk of not getting a Predatory Swiftness proc (aka, free shapeshifted-regrowth for a 2x bloodtalons proc). If this happens, a shift and hardcasted regrowth to ensure your Rake/Rip is buffed with Bloodtalons is crucial to maximizing your DPS in a pinch. But these shoes are your golden ticket to reaching that 100% uptime goal.

 

Sorry for the 10k word essay, but like yourself, i like to be thorough :D . Good luck fellow cat!

      Hello all, 
                   Thanks for your yalls time and I hope I am in the the right place to ask. First things first, here is my toons info page. http://us.battle.net/wow/en/character/draenor/Aurgus/advanced . The question I have is this. On the Arms Warrior guide, it states the the stat priority for Arms Warrior is Mastery>Haste>Versatility>Strength>Crit . Then the first thing it says in the next paragraph is the following.
      Strength is your primary statistic. You should look for it in all of your upgrades. It provides you with Attack Power, which determines the damage your abilities do.
      Critical Strike provides additional damage to your attacks and abilities, and also increases your rage generated by auto-attack swings on successful critical strikes.
      As a on and off again / returning player and all around general boob, I mean, NOOB lol, this is extremely confusing. I am already and almost done with my main Warrior quest, and I have so far chosen gear that focused on Mastery and Haste. But from that the guide says, I am doing it wrong?
      Thanks again for your time , any help would be appreciated, and MUCH LOVE from Wisconsin :)

      This is my current pawn string from sims:
      Agility=21.87, CritRating=18.49, HasteRating=24.16, MasteryRating=22.94, Versatility=17.33
      Is anyone else getting haste over mastery and agi? I recently got the Mantle (FINALLY!), so not sure if that is affecting anything. I know crit used to be important for Mantle, so I am not sure why it would be the culprit here. I even tested swapping out my enchants to haste and it did provide a slight boost while maintaining the same scaling. Mastery is at 9300, Crit at 9300 and Haste at 8000 (Roughly), so I definitely dont feel I have enough mastery to start warranting haste over it and agi.
      Just wondering if anyone else is seeing this too?
      I do have the current sim build, so no issues there.

      Hi Guys, I need little help with stats priority and rotation. I think, Im doing something wrong with my dps. Cant break 500k-550k DPS on single target and need advice to someone AoE target bosses in Nighthold.
      I send my armory:
      http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/character/draenor/Cryea/simple
      And the logs:

      Hey there!
      I'm 907 ilvl frost breath DK with the minimal 25% crit and 19-20% haste. I have 885 memento and convergence and I just got a 885 trinket with str and 1k crit.
      So excluding cases where ppl keep dying and with the new stat weights - is a pure stat trinket like that better than memento?
    • By Shredderizer
      Salutations! I have a problem regarding stats and ilvl, i've uploaded 2 pictures of my stats and ilvl with 2 different setups.
      In one picture, my stats are (what i consider to be) pretty high except haste, but in order to have these stats i must sacrifice 6 ilvls.
      In the other my stats have decreased drastically (except haste, which has increase drastically, as well as my ilvl)
      So i wonder what i should set my focus on, my ilvl, or my stats?
      Sidenote: with high stats and ilvl 868, In most aoe cases i outdps my hunter friend who is 887 by several miles, his skills are questionable though...
      Thank you so much in advance :)
