[Feral] Paloro's How to Guide

Recommended Posts

If Rip has fallen off the target, that means that you have let it fall off as a sacrifice to land a FB. This will only be worth it if you get it up again very quickly, and only lose roughly a tick of damage.

Feral is all about forward planning, about learning how to see 20-30 seconds forward in your rotation to see when you can weave in a FB, when you need to get Rip back up, and when, rarely, you can afford to let it fall for a second. This is tied directly to your stats (specifically crit and haste) as different ferals will regen energy and combo points faster based on their gear. It's all about practice and innate knowledge of your class.

 

It's also worth noting that the farther we get in the tier, the more important Rip will be until it is unacceptable to ever let it fall off to land a FB, as our levels of mastery increase. Early in the tier FB and Rip aren't terribly far from each other in terms of effective damage, but the gap will widen as we hit our crit caps and the mastery continues to scale.

 

 

 

If there's 11 seconds left on Rip and I'm energy capped and at 5cp, I'm pretty sure the best decision is to bite and pray.

I would only agree if you will have TF coming up in a few seconds and your SR is well maintained.

Hey, I have a question about keeping Savage Roar up.

 

With Incarnation, SR is free for the first ~80 seconds of a fight, and after that, SR is refreshed twice as needed (42+42 sec). By the time that 2nd SR is near expiration, there will be 16~20 seconds left on the next Incarnation/Berserk cd.

 

When I cast my 3rd SR, should I spend 1-2 cp just to keep it up long enough, or spend 5 cp for a guaranteed Predatory Swiftness?

You will generally want to go for the PS proc.  The exception being if you are squeezing in another FB and it will be hard to generate 5 cp before SR falls.

I'm still showing Crit>Multistrike. 

 

What setup options are you using?  I would look at varying things like fight duration and duration variance as they would have the most likely impact on moving the priority of Multistrike.

To replicate your results, I would need everything that you are using as a setting. 

 

Gear/enchants/buffs/options

 

V24 came out on Jan 14th.  Using this simulation on my character (Paloro: US Arthas) with the following settings:

10000 iterations

450 fight length

20% variance

Patchwerk

Elite player skill

low (50ms) world lag

 

I get the following stat weights:

6.62   Weapon DPS

6.13   Agility               

5.48   Attack Power

3.40   Crit

2.85   Multistrike        

2.41   Versatility          

2.37   Mastery             

2.20   Haste             

 

This seems 100% accurate to me

Could you post your armory?  I'd like to see if I produce the same results as I have all the same settings.  I'd also like to double check talent choices.  

 

Thanks a lot for the help, feral druid is the only dps class I'm having issues with sim wise and I'm trying to figure it out before I give out bad information.

Is Incarnation always the best choice?

On HC Butcher and Kargath only last like 2:30-2:50min and i can use incarnation only once.

Could Soul of the Forest or Treants be the better choice dps wise or is Incarnation still superior?

If the fights are that short, your raid dps is so high it pretty much doesn't matter what you pick.

For dps purposes Inc would be the best choice.

Agreed, it would most likely still be Incarnation, though it doesn't hurt to sim yourself to be sure.

Hey Paloro, this is a great guide! I do have a question about OoC on single target. With 2 set, is it worth using Thrash with OoC for the increased energy gain? I haven't figured out how to alter simcraft rotations so I can't test this out for myself :S

Thanks for the kind words.

 

The simcraft rotation is currently using OoC procs on Thrash for single target.  Therefore, having the 2p will increase your damage.

 

However, if you are having trouble maintaining your other bleeds, I would not recommend using Thrash at all for single target.

Oh is it? I'm still new to using simcraft so I must have missed that information. 

 

Bleed maintenance isn't an issue for me, so I will definitely be incorporating Thrash into my single target. Thanks for the quick response!

      restoration druid nerfs 8.1

      I saw on Wowhead that Restro druids are receiving a nerf to  Tranquility : Heals all allies within 40 yards for [(41%37% of Spell power) * 5] over 8 sec. Each heal heals the target for another 16 over 8 sec, stacking.
      Healing increased by 100% when not in a raid.

      I feel like its not necssary and are going to effect my healing in a bad way duh. (Nerfs normally do.) But as it is right now im far behind Mistweaver munks and every priest spec. 
      My Tranquility is my second higest if not the higest healing abillity i have (Thats what Details Tells me.) 

      And im unsure how the Autumn leaves changes is gonna effect me, wheter or not its for the better or worse.

      What do you guys think?

      This is my first post please no roast 👶

      1. Clemency
      4. High Inquisitor
      7. Zealous Spirit
      10. either one depending on comp
      13. Harsh Discipline
      16. Radiance
      20. if you went with sc at 10, the 20 sc choice is a must-pick. if you went with Divine Reckoning, Purge the Wicked or the 20 ult buff are the two options depending on need. if you need single target burst, go purge. if you want more aoe burst healing, then judgement will hit harder and heal harder. 
      This build revolves around abusing clemency/inquisition's short cooldown to quickly grant zeal to everyone and convert the lost mana back to you with either usage of the spell. 
      The idea behind the build is to build up to three desperation stacks before a fight by spamming your q on each teammate to stack zeal. the last cast if everyone is around will be using clemency to zeal the last hero and reset your stacks which also refunds 225 mana. you can stack zeal on all 5 of your teammates in <2 seconds with no drawbacks. you're essentially playing whitemane the same way you would malfurion. but your zeal works as your "regrowth" so to speak. 
      You take radiance at 16 so you can burst heal your team on command. you should have zeal on AT LEAST the 3 people most likely to take damage. before doing your dps combo (if you took Divine Reckoning) of R-E-W or E-R-W, stack zeal on your teammates, burst heal on the third stack application, then do the combo.
      if DR hits just one hero, the combo gives ~6-700 hps which increases (obviously) as more enemies are in your hurtbox. maiev is an unbelievably pairing for this combo as her ult helps keep the enemy within your reckoning for as long as possible.
      youre able to spam three more q's and your clemency/inquisition should be back up within a second or two. you basically rinse and repeat this without losing any mana whatsoever. shes able to keep up that burst spam combo indefinitely if you manage your stacks correctly. while also refreshing zeal on the person with the lowest timer. divine reckoning provides an absolutely insane amount of burst healing while also softening up anyone sitting in its effect.
