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:

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.

      It's a few months later (what with delays and distractions and getting old and all that), but I just wanted to start by saying THANK YOU to those who helped me with amazing advice on levelling my fire mage alt. It made all the difference - you guys rock.
      I finally dinged 110 the other day and went into a few instances and raid finders with her. As a caster noob - I main a feral - there are a few things I've noticed and am unsure about.
      The guide here on Icy Veins recommends Dragon's Breath for AoE of 3+ grouped mobs. I may have overlooked something, but I can't for the life of me find anything on the *range* of Dragon's breath. The animation makes me think I need to stand right in front of the mobs to hit them, but that can't be right, I'm supposed to be ranged and standing a good bit away - aren't I?  During levelling, I've gotten used to casting Living Bomb regardless of how many mobs I'm facing. The guide has it exclusively as an AoE ability. Is that true, or is it worth casting on a single target (boss)? Does meteor "work" on huge bosses who are standing behind a ledge/cliff, in the manner of Engine of Souls (Desolate Host) or Garothi Worldbreaker? I try placing it as close to the edge of the "cliff" as possible, does that mean it'll hit the boss?

      Hello,
      The Sworn is recruiting range DPS & Tank. We are a Horde guild on Arthas and our current progression is 7/11 Mythic Antorus. We only raid two nights a week, Tuesday and Wednesday from 9:15 PM until 12:15 AM Eastern. Currently, our main goal is to push Mythic progression & finish out the raid before next patch, please keep this in mind if you wish to join us, because we will not be doing Heroic or anything like that.
      From you, we would expect 100% attendance during your trial period; after that if you cannot make a raid or will be late it is mandatory to keep the raid leader updated. In order to continue making good progression while raiding only two nights a week, we expect that you know your class inside-out and will research any bosses you are unfamiliar with prior to raids.
      As far as classes are concerned, at this time, we do not have ANY rogues, DPS warriors, havoc DH, or wind walkers.
      If you are interested, add me to battle tag and we will talk (violentravi#1826), I will accept mostly anyone who wants to be a bench or casual, but for raiding purposes, you must be able to provide logs.  If you cannot get ahold of me in game, I work nights, please shoot me an email, I check it at work often and I can get ahold of other officers via text/discord if it's urgent! violentnacho@gmail.com
      Thank you for your consideration
      Xoxo

      About Us
      Skunkworks is a guild for players who can not or do not want to commit to the time-intensive raid schedules of traditional "hardcore" guilds.
      However, we still maintain a high caliber player environment and make an efficient use of our raiding time.
      We raid Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7:00 - 11:00 PST, just 8 hours a week and never more.
       
      We are very protective of our guild environment and selective in recruitment. We are looking for solid players mechanically as well as intellectually.
      We all get paid to deal with idiots, why should we pay to spend our leisure time with them as well?
       
      Skunkworks has been around for multiple expansions and has historically always been at the top of the 2-night raiding guild scene.
