Feral seeking guidance

3 posts in this topic

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.

Character info:

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.

      Hive have opened up recruitment!

      Hive is a 2-day mythic raiding guild on Ravencrest-Alliance. We are a core of raiders who have been together since before the launch of Legion and are looking to expand on our Raiding Roster for the opening of Tomb of Sargeras. We are a fairly new guild and as such are a work in progress.
      We are aiming for a spot within the top 20-30 guilds on Ravencrest on progress, and are looking for more raiders with an ambition and dedication at the same level.
      Recruitment:
      1x Holy Paladin
      1x Rogue
      1x Warlock 
      1x Mage 
      1x Rogue
      Legion Progression:
      Emerald Nightmare: 7/7 M
      Trial of Valor: 2/3 M
      The Nighthold: 5/10 M

      Raid Days:
      The raiding times in Hive are Thursday and Sunday from 19:30 until 23:30 Server time (CEST). Invites to the raids will go out starting at 19:15. We require all raiders to be ready and available to execute the first pull of the raid at 19:30.

      Loot:
      The loot in Hive is distributed amongst the raiders through a Loot Council. This council includes 3 Officers and at least 2 Raiders. During the remainder of the Nighthold Raid, all Trial Raiders will have equal rights to any loot drops as a core raider - Once Tomb of Sargeras is open however, Raiders will have priority over Trial Raiders within reason.

      Requirements:
      -All communication during raids will be in English and we require all our raiders to be on Discord and able to speak, with a functioning mic. 
      -80% attendance on main raids. Due to this low attendance requirement, we have a large roster of players and all raiders may be subject to rotation in the raiding team on any given night.
      -A positive attitude towards constructive critisism - We expect all raiders to know their class through and through.
      -Preparation. All raiders are required to show up with enough Flasks, Food, Health potions and Combat potions to last through a night of extensive progress wiping. We may also ask you to use Defiled Augment Runes on progress fights. Vantus Runes are provided by the guild bank.

      Contact:
      If you are looking for further information or have any questions, feel free to contact any of our Officers on Battle.tag:
      Elesís - Elesis#2594
      Jösh - JoshSmith#2461
