Hello mates !

So , i recently started playing Wow-Mop ( i had to stop at Cataclysm pre-Dragon Soul ) , and i'm right now playing Feral Druid ( I was playig Mage at cataclysm ) and i reached lvl 90 like a month ago. I'm currently 492iLvl and my dps is ... horrible , i'm usually around 45k ( sometimes higher , sometimes even lower ) where as most of players in lfr's are between 80 and 100k for players with nearly the same iLvl . I've read a lot of guides , tried to improve myself and the dps rotation but no changes ...

My base rotation is : Faerie Fire + Savage Roar => Tigers Fury + Berserk + Berserking ( Troll Ability ) => Rake => Mangle/Shred until 5 combo points => Natures Swiftness Macro with a Healing Touch => Rip => Refresh Rake =>Mangle/Shred until 5 points => Savage Roar

I make sure to use Predatory Swiftness procs , refresh Faerie Fire debuff and use Tigers Fury/Berserk on cooldown

As you may see , a lot of items arent Enchanted , thats because i'm newly 90 and i've bought the 280% Flying skill so i'm actually pretty poor :D. But i dont feel like that would increase my dps that much ( Not saying i wont enchant my stuff :P , just that i dont feel like that's the main problem )

Thanks and i hope you guys can do something !

Hi,

Im a long term feral raider and might have a few tips that might help you improve.

So the most damage of the feral druids damage does comes from our bleeds right, so you want to make sure that you buff your bleeds as much as possible with dream of cenarius and tigers fury ect.

Just join a lfr and disable the dps meter and try to not to care about the dps too mouch.

Take it easy and dont spend all energy just as you get it, if youre energy wont cap you can wait for rake or trash to fall of before you use it.

have as mouch uptime on rip as possible and try to keep it as buffed as possible (always use natures swiftness on cd to activate dream of cenarius right before applying a new rip.

After the fight check how mouch dps you did and how try to think of ways to improve it the next time.

You start off using the berserk and tigers fury, when I start I get my savage roar up with my first five combo points and than use those. This way I am more effectively using berserk while its up. Its a powerful buff that shouldn't be wasted. Also by using some energy first you can use the 60 energy bonus from berserk. I also make sure to refresh rip after using tigers fury whenever possible. I don't now if you're doing it or not but you don't need to refresh you're bleeds unless they're about to end. So, spend some combo points on ferocious bite. Other than that I do the same as what you're doing. I usually do about 80k at the same ilvl.

A good weapon makes a huge difference to Feral. When you get an upgrade to the 476 weapon, you'll notice it for sure. Spend your coins on Lei Shen to try to get that polearm and the Rune of Reorigination. Choose your talents - for your level 15 talent, if you don't want another button to press, take Feline Swiftness since it will increase your passive run speed. For level 45 talent take whatever, it doesn't matter. Level 60 talent should be Soul of the Forest for max DPS gain.

Enchant, gem and reforge your gear properly. Use Reforgelite or Ask Mr. Robot depending on your preferences. Dancing Steel, the Agility bracer enchant and the meta gem are expensive, but you're a Druid with a gathering skill. Go pick some herbs to pay for them. :D

I recommend to load a mod like Cat's Eye or Droodfocus to keep track of Weakened Armor, Rake, Rip, Thrash, your Savage Roar self-buff, and the Tiger's Fury cooldown. Feral has arguably the most difficult rotation of any class in WoW, so at least I need a little extra help to keep track of everything.

When I had the same weapon as you, I was typically doing 60k DPS single target. Now I can do 120k wearing my tank gear. The new stuff from ToT and the Shado-Pan Assault vendor is just so far ahead of the 5.1 raid gear.

      <Pickle Palace> is a recently formed guild on Illidan, but is made up of veteran players who wanted to take a step back from semi-hardcore raiding. We are currently raiding Mythic Antorus (9/11), with our goal being to finish it out before the end of the expansion. Our community is actively playing outside of raid time, pushing M+ and hanging out on discord.

      We raid on a 2 day schedule. Our raid days are Tuesday and Wednesday 9-12 EST. And will be adding a 3rd raid day for BfA! (Thursday or Monday)

      We are currently recruiting,

      All Exceptional Ranged DPS

      Shaman w/ offpsec heals

      Expectations
      Have a great attitude every night. Be prepared for every raid; this includes purchasing consumables and studying encounter strategies. We provide feast/codex/flasks other consumables are your responsibility Zero tolerance policy for criticizing others' performance. Officers will take care of it, worry about yourself and yourself only. Be critical of your performance and take time outside of raiding hours to analyze warcraftlogs for personal improvement. Have fun. We love playing with each other in a friendly, team-oriented, boss-crushing atmosphere -- and you should too! Must be able to tolerate adult language

      Hi everyone. I just killed HC Varimathras and I was surprised by my low damage. There was not second time warp because we used the first one at 20% HP but I think I should get higher numbers. Can anyone tell me what did I do wrong? Was it really only in TW? I do not think so :/.

We raid with a fun, casual, yet goal oriented focus; we achieve AotC in current content and then progress into Mythic. We also have a few that pvp, and we've been known to also do mog/achievement runs.
