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.

I hope this help you, if you have further questions feel free to send them to ivar.n.sorri@gmail.com

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.

      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.

      Hello,
      The Sworn is recruiting DPS.  We are a Horde guild on Arthas and our current progression is 4/9 Mythic TOS.  We only raid two nights a week, Tuesday and Wednesday from 9:05 PM until 12:05 AM Eastern.  Currently, our main goal is to push Mythis TOS progression versus clearing farmed content, please keep this in mind if you wish to join us.
      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.
       If you are interested, you can either reply to this thread and link your most recent combat logs for review or hit me up on battlenet, Violentnacho, recruiting officer (violentravi#1826.
      Thank you for your consideration
      Xoxo

      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!
