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!

      Hi everyone,
      I, like many others, are trying to maximize DPS for their respective classes, mine in particular being ret paladin.
      In general, it seems like there are several sources of information for dps for each class.
      Icy Veins Mr Robot Raidbots (Simulation Craft) Warcraft Logs Each with its own set of criteria as to what determines high dps. And I find inconsistency when bouncing between the different sources. I want to understand what am I missing when it comes to each. I will lay out what I currently understand, and would like some feedback as to what I may not be considering in each as well as some advice as to what other options I could be exploring (resources) to further the insight into whats applicable for my current state.
      Icy Veins
      For Icy Veins, in particular, the stat weights, are mostly vaguely determined. From the ret guide:
       
      If I am reading this right, its Mastery >= Haste > Ver >= Crit = Str
      Mr Robot
      I use the addOn and I subscribe for the Best In Bags function. When I plug in my information in, the site recommends that I go with my 2pce t20 and balance around my legendaries with a focus on haste pieces (haste gems are emphasized).
      https://www.askmrrobot.com/wow/simulator/report/a42136294c7f40b2b7ee78023306d786
      Stat weights as listed in MrRobot:
      MrRobot Stat Weights
      From what I am seeing, Crit is most emphasized, and the one crit gem + ring crit enchants were originally recommended by MrRobot here. Also another notable thing here is haste being way behind crit's potential.
      RaidBots (Simc)
      For RaidBots, I use the addOn, and play around with various items I hoard, and use the stat weights functions. Generally the feedback I get here are to stick with the current gem setup and with regards to stat weights, emphasize at my current setup with crit. It also says I should drop some of my high ilvl pieces (935 head, and 960 chest) for 4pce (915 head, lfr 890 chest)
      Gear simc:

      Stat Weights:
      https://www.raidbots.com/simbot/report/6NkVYwEaTW26FxD4wBwey4
      Vers -> crit -> mastery -> haste -> str
      (versitality first?)
      Warcraft Logs
      I mostly use Warcraft Logs to check what the top dps players (ret pallys) are hitting and what setups are they running. I don't want to specifically link player armories in here, but upon some investigation, you'll find most are just stacking haste
      ---
      I understand stat weights are relative, however it seems like everyone has different priorities, one says mastery, another vers, another crit, another haste?
      Help me understand.
      Thanks,
      Exploit

      Hi, Im having shoulders with 925 ilevel, mastery and verstality, but also I do have shoulders 915 ilevel, haste and avoidance.

      Whats better, lower item level but with best stats (haste/avoidance), or higher item level but with mastery and versa ?? 

      In overall, is it better to aim for "best" stats or just push item level first?

      Question regarding WW stat priority - is there ever a point where I'll want to choose something like Vers or Haste over Mastery or Crit, in a single-target situation? (I understand that Haste > Crit in multi-target)
      I'm still a little new to WW in Legion, here's a link to my character if that helps at all. At the moment I'm sitting at 52% Mastery and 47% Crit, since I'm still missing 1 tier piece to complete my 4-set. Tier will definitely change up my stats, but with such high Crit I've been wondering if Legion has some sort of soft cap on stats, especially this late in the expansion, or if there are certain percentages where I'll want to start taking other stats?...
      Thanks.

      According to Azortharion simulations, our best for Antorus will be Qapla/Soul+Dire Frenzy/OWTP , ¿what stats need this build? At this moment, we need Mastery/Haste for Dire Frenzy build and Critical/Haste for OWTP build: therefore, they are mutually exclusive, right?  Or at least I understand that.
      So, ¿what stats?
    • By Venekus
      Hello again,
      So today I looted a ring in the Mythic+ weekly chest, awful stats but great iLvl improvement (885->920). So the question is: at what point is it sane to sacrifice +4% in Haste to get ~100k more HP?
      Thanks.
