Long Lost Feral DPS

3 posts in this topic

Just got back to playing WoW again after dropping from Draenor (if I spelled it right), and a little rusty on my feral spec. Guardian is my main spec and holy hell the threat with it not as good as it was back then. But that is another topic for later. I have followed the guide on this forum and tried the single target with LI and SR. I have tried numerous times with the current gear I have and could not reach DPS pass 160k. I have switched to BS and Incarnations and get up to 240 with no issues. Also having issues getting gear with the right amount of Crit and Mastery. But could there be something I am doing wrong? I am definitely going with the rotation on here but its just not working for me. The rotation with the BS and Incarnation is similar to the LI rotation, just without the Moon Fire. I find this rotation without Moon Fire and SR a lot more simple to use. But I am also trying to keep my bleeds up as well which I am trying to work on. I also tried using the AOE spec which is interesting and can get around 210 single target as well.



I do not have any raid logs, but any suggestions would be awesome. 

By the way... AOE on the single target specs is kind of horrible for me... (Shrugs)

Thank you

I personally think Savage Roar is a must have and would never go into a boss fight without it. From what I can see in your logs (on mobile so it's kinda hard to see properly), you're using Ferocious Bite a fair bit. Until you get to the execute phase (25%) and it is resetting your Rip timer, it's wasted resources (unless you will be able to fit it in and still keep rip/SR without then falling off). Your combo points would be better spent on Savage Roar in this case.


Again, on mobile so seeing the armory is kind of difficult, but if you do only have 18 points in your weapon, you'll have a noticeable spike when you hit 20 and unlock Ashamane's Bite. 


Other little bits that will help, getting the best enchants/gems you can. Hidden Satyr for neck, +200 agi for cloak and +200 mastery for rings. First gem should always be +200 agi, subsequent should be +150 mastery. 


Lastly, when you're about to engage a boss, cast healing touch before pre-potting/prowling. First Rake/Shred will get thay boost from Bloodtalons. It's not much, but on progression every little bit counts. 


I'm still fairly new to feral myself, but I hope what I have learned since Legion hit will help you too. Happy to share my logs from Normal/Heroic EN if you ever want to chat more in depth about all things feral.


Edit: Forgot to mention Relics! Noticed you had one that increased healing from Healing Touch. Try and prioritise those that increase Rip damage. If you can't get 3 of them, Rake damage relics are almost as good.

      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.

      Hi all :)
      I would like some help with my feral dps please. My dps is WAY behind the rest of my guild. I haven't done progression raiding for the past couple of expansions, and I'm more used to tanking.
      Here is my armory:
      Here is the log:
      I have read the rotation suggestions on Icy-Veins and I've been looking through the additional resources on the Discord Dreamgrove channel.
      I did use Simcraft and Pawn to try and optimize my gear. The other legendaries I have available are Ekowraith, Elize's Everlasting Encasement, Prydaz, and the Insignia of the Grand Army.
      I think the problem is my rotation though, not so much the gear. I downloaded DotFocus to try and help me figure out when it's ok to overwrite existing bleeds, but I don't think I'm using that properly.
      In last night's raid, I did an OK job of using Ashamane's Frenzy on cooldown, but a horrible job of remembering to use Incarnation. I always seemed to have a ton of energy, so I also didn't use Tiger's Fury that often. I think I did a decent, but not awesome, job of maintaining Rake and Rip. I always seemed to have a full 5 combo points, so I used Ferocious Bite more than I probably should have. I'm basing the above on what I remember from the raid, not on the shenanigans that actually showed up on the combat log. Clearly something got lost between what I read and what I typed.
      Hope someone can help!

      All applications will be reviewed and considered however if you are playing a class/spec combination we need then your chances of joining will be higher.
      A little bit of info about us:
      We are a group of friends and serious raiders on EU Twisting Nether looking to recruit skilled like-minded players into our roster for Mythic Legion raids and onwards. We will offer a sociable and fun raiding environment while maintaining a strong desire for progression. Our Discord is very active and we encourage all members to chat and play together not only for raids. The guild formed late March 2016 and fully cleared 13/13 Mythic Hellfire Citadel pre nerf shortly after. We've since been improving our world ranking every tier.
      We currently raid 3 days per week on Mythic: Wednesday, Sunday and Tuesday 19:15-22:15 server time. While it is not a lot we try to make the most out of our time. We run optional heroic/normal/alt/previous tier raids during off days in which raiders are welcome to come to. Our members also play other games outside raid times together where anyone is welcome to join(LoL, PUBG, HotS, Overwatch etc.).
      Our loot system for Mythic is RC Loot Council.
      What we expect from you:
      - We are a raiding guild with only a 9 hour per week schedule so you are expected to attend and be ON TIME! However we understand things can come up sometimes but please let us know.
      - Be able to speak and understand the English language and not be afraid to communicate with other members during raids.
      - Actively doing dungeons/world quests to improve your gear and artifact weapon.
      - Have a strong understanding of the current raid tier and be able to play your class to it's potential.
      - Always come to raids prepared(i.e. bringing food and potions, etc).
      - Come fully gemmed and enchanted with the correct stats for your class and spec.
      - Access to Discord and a working microphone.
      - Have a computer that can handle 20 man raiding and a good, stable internet connection.
      - Exorsus Raid Tools, Weakauras2 and RC Loot Council addons installed. We may ask you to install others.
