Feral seeking guidance

Hey all, After my performance in raid tonight i have come here for any advice on how to improve my dps, since i first started raiding as feral i followed the feral dps guide on here and saw around a 50-90k dps increase but i still feel like i can improve a lot more as  i am not very consistent with my damage it seems to go all other the place. I believe my main issue i am having is i get energy starved a bit to much which really affects my bleeds as sometimes i just cant keep them on the target.

Worst fight of the night:
https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/xbfdMC8vXgzJjQhy#fight=14&type=damage-done&source=6

 

Any help would be much appreciated, i really want to improve as much as i can so i don't feel like i am letting the guild down with bad performance.

I know you posted this about two weeks ago but even looking at your more recent logs from your guild as a whole the dps is low. main things I notice is that you don't have ashamane's bite yet on the artifact which is a massive dps boost also are you using rip trait relics? your uptime is pretty good on rake and rip just make sure to apply bloodtalons on em as much as possible with SR up at all times.

Heres me in our heroic kill of nythendra last week just for a comparison.

Hi Chicimono,

With your energy problems, you are probably spamming shred too much. Go easier on it and prioritise keeping up the DoTs. This means you will have more downtime than you're used to but use that time to think about your next move (e.g. whether you should refresh Rip or Savage Roar next) and it should result in a dps gain.  

Looking at your logs, it appears you are using blood talons (the instant cast heal proc) immediately after it appears. This would explain your relatively high Rake and Shred damage with low Rip damage.

My advice here is to hold onto the proc and use it before using rip. 

In order of importance, you should use blood talons on:

1. Your Artifact ability

2. Rip

3. Rake

4. Shred

Note that Moonfire doesn't consume blood talon so if you pressed your proc too early, you can gain extra combo points through refreshing Moonfire then using the buff on a rip instead. 

With all that being said, you would still want to put out as much Rakes with the blood talon buff behind it as much as you can. A typical scenario would be having 4 combo points, use the proc, refresh rake to get 1 extra combo point then rip as these bleeds are buffed. If you don't need to refresh your Rake so early however, then use the proc at 5 combo points, followed by Rip then Rake,

I am not a high end raider and this is just my opinion, there's probably a better way to play the spec than the way I described here. 

If you have been playing it as I described here then banter was had, I wasted some time and the problem would probably lie in your gear.

Hope this helps.

      Hello there!

      <Shadow> on Argent Dawn has been going since 2009. We are a close-knit community and strongly believe in recruiting people who will fit in with us rather than just whoever is topping the meters. We also believe that having a busy RL life with job/family/social commitments and committing to Mythic raiding as a hobby we're all passionate about are not mutually exclusive. We are looking to bolster our line-up to push for Cutting Edge in Antorus.

      About us
       
      We progress raid Thursdays and Sundays, 20:00-23:00 and 19:30-22:30 respectively (all times server time)
      We have a non-mandatory farm raid Fridays at 20:30 that socials and alts are welcome to
      We use Discord for voice communication and have an active server to hang out, chat, and organise M+ runs
      We maintain a mature environment - having a laugh is great, but bullying, endless meme-spamming and the like are not welcome
      We believe in learning from your mistakes - you will never be yelled at, but you will be asked whether you know what you did wrong and how you can fix it
       

      What we expect from recruits
       
      Sign up to raids ahead of time and give us a heads-up in case of longer absences
      Be there 15 minutes before raid start and bring your own consumables as back-up to feasts and cauldrons
      Do your homework - research encounters thoroughly and understand them
      Understand and know how to play your class
      Have Discord installed and a working microphone, ready to speak when required but without cluttering up comms with chatter
      You don't need to grind to the point of burn-out, but keep up with AP traits and do M+ to hone your skills and supplement your gear
      Be a team player and bring a positive attitude. Wipes happen in Mythic. Constructive feedback is great, backseat raid leading is not.


      What we are currently looking for

      A rule that applies to all potential recruits is: We do not recruit for the bench, but we will always take the team that is most likely to defeat the boss and cannot promise everyone they will always be in for every fight. When things are equal in terms of performance and required composition, we much prefer to rotate people in and out over benching someone for an entire night.
      One Healer - Paladin preferred, but any class that isn't priest will be considered
      One Tank - Bear, Brewmaster or Blood DK
      Melee DPS - got one spot for a Rogue
      Ranged DPS - Boomkins, Shadow Priests, Warlocks and Hunters

      If this sounds like the guild for you, check us out at shadow-wow.enjin.com or contact the Co-GMs Alec#2922 and NevNev#2669 for more info!

      See you in Antorus!

      Hello!
      I was wondering how I could improve my damage to log higher as a feral! My armory: https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-gb/character/silvermoon/wólfíé
      and all of my logs: https://www.warcraftlogs.com/character/eu/silvermoon/wólfíé
      I usually maintain bleeds 95+% of the time and don't waste combo points, I cast tigers fury and open with rake, ashmane's then shred and rip (I skip the extra shred if I get 2 combo points from rake)  then I just shred and fbite spam (and making sure to use trinkets on cd) What should I change to log 95+?
      I have legendary gloves and wrists for feral if I should change legendaries. 
      thanks in advance!
