Feral Druid 6.2

Recommended Posts

In 4.2.1 you say that Moonfire is applied with energy.  This is only true if you take the Lunar Inspiration talent.  Also, for pure single target, you don't want to take LI.

That should not be in there, it must be a left-over from when I had the level 100 content included. Removing! Thanks.

1. Single Target Rotation

 

Thrash is not of benefit to use, even with Omen of Clarity.

 

2. Multiple Target Rotation

 

Only use Thrash is the targets will live long enough for the bleed to expire.

 

4.1

No ability gives more then 1 combo point.  This is only affected by Primal Fury in which direct damage crits add an additional combo point.

 

4.2.1

Thrash should not be used for single target.

 

4.2.7

Please split this into two sections that are Boss HP>25% and BossHP<25%

>25%

Only use FB when at 5 cp and 50 energy

<25%

Strive to use FB at 5 cp and 50 energy but if Rip will fall, any cp or energy combo works.

 

4.3.1/2

TF can be used during Berserk now.  It is not always optimal to use TF before Berserk.  There is no need to wait to use Berserk so long as TF will come off cooldown within half of Berserks duration.

So the guide says bleeds snapshot and then they don't. Update the snapshot section if you would. Please and thank you.

Hello,

 

I think it's mistake in gems. Red and yellow gems are switched :-)

Thank you. I've implemented (most of) your suggestions.

 

So the guide says bleeds snapshot and then they don't. Update the snapshot section if you would. Please and thank you.

The guide still talks about bleeds snapshotting because they still do snapshot. They just don't snapshot your stats (like they used to), they do still snapshot your buffs such as Tiger's Fury and Savage Roar, and come level 100 they'll also snapshot Bloodtalons and Improved Rake.

 

I admit that the way the section was worded was a bit mislead, and it could have caused the impression that stats still affect it. I've amended that.

Droodfocus is out of date, i got it to work but expiriencing many things not working that worked pre 6.0.2 patch. It would be very nice if someone would take it over and keep it updated.

Many ferals are now using a GUI developed in weak auras that gives you very similar information to Droodfocus.

I use class timers. You can set custom triggers and etc as well as adjust size. very easy to setup and you can have it track trinket procs too.

Prismatic gem slot should be filled using the blue (rigid) or yellow (smooth) as both give +20 to crit, and not the hybrid haste / crit.

Hi.

 

Something I've just catch up on Live servers. Minor Glyph of Travel recommended on the builds-talents-glyphs page is unattainable at this point. It is learned by a discovery recipe using the new WoD ink, so noone will be able to craft it before WOD launches.

 

Given that most of the guide seems targeted to current live lvl 90 capped game, its a bit odd recommending an unnatainable glyph. Under the minor glyph section, I would withdraw the Glyph of Travel (or weite a note stating that it is indeed very nice, but unnatainable until WOD ). And also I would add glyph of Aquatic Form. Pretty situational, but a nice improvement for some very aquatic environments.

 

Kris

 

P.S. The same applies to the Druid Guardian Bear tanking guide.

The stat priorities are confusing as there are no weights, but I think Enchant Gloves - Major Agility (+10) or Enchant Gloves - Greater / Superior Haste (+11) would be better than strength and mastery.

Stat weights vary per individual and gear set.  Therefore, they cannot be expressed and taken as gospel by everyone.

 

Enchant Gloves - Major Agility is a level 100 enchant.  For now, the best would be mastery, then haste.

 

 

what about glyph of savagery¿

What about it?

What about it?

 

"Glyph of Savage Roar causes you to gain a wow_icon_ability_druid_skinteeth.jpg Savage Roar (as though cast with 5 Combo Points) each time you use wow_icon_ability_druid_disembowel.jpg Rake or wow_icon_spell_shadow_vampiricaura.jpg Shred while wow_icon_ability_druid_prowl.jpg Prowling. If you are using wow_icon_spell_druid_incarnation.jpg Incarnation: King of the Jungle, then this glyph is essentially mandatory, but otherwise you can skip it. "

 

If we can skip Glyph of savage roar because nowadays we all pick Soul of the forest as level 60 talent, Glyph of Savagery could be a nice alternative isn't it? Or is the 10% penalty too big?

I've removed the Strength Enchant suggestion, but the Mastery one remains ideal.

Glyph of Savagery requires WoD.

Ok, I am totally confused with the stats priority on Ferals, and quite frankly I have been for years. When I follow exactly was it recommended, I have virtually no energy regen what so ever, so I spend long periods waiting to use my attacks because I don't have enough energy for any of them to be used. This blows my DPS through the floor, bleeds or no.

 

I have taken to checking out the Armories of some of the top end Feral in the world and running in the high end guilds. In each and EVERY case they all have haste in their gems or gear. Prior to 6.0.2 most had nearly 25% haste on average. I remember several expac's ago being informed that Ferals take more swings per attack than most other melee dps. As I recall, it was three swings to every one swing for other melee. This may no longer be the case, I do not know.

 

What I do know, is that if I follow exactly what is recommended, I cannot get any real DPS... In fact, prior to this patch, I managed to build my haste up to approximately 20%, and my DPS skyrocketed. It was still not the best, but a lot of that was a matter of gear, and trying to get some kind of base rotation to work from, but I was making progress.

 

Checking the profile of Stenhadli, who runs with Midwinter and has contributed to info on Icy-Veins, I notice that nearly all of the orange gems that he has socketed are either Haste or Haste/Crit, even though the info at the bottom of the page shows that he does not have any Haste.

 

I am tired of taking one or two swings and then not being able to do anything because the energy is so slow to regen, and the only way, to my understanding to resolve this is to give Haste some consideration in the priorities besides being at the bottom of the list. Will someone PLEASE explain this too me...How are you keeping your regen up if you have NO haste, and if you do have Haste, how much do you have? As it is, I am leaning towards stacking my Orange gems with either pure haste or haste/crit, because I see no other means to generate the energy at a reasonable level for me to get any DPS worth anything.

First, I would like to recommend posting in the Druid section of the forum so you can get some more personalized results.  That can be found here.

 

Feral has never had very good energy regen and through its existence has only focused on haste twice (for a brief time in ICC when Armor Penetration capping was relevant and with RoR...however aiming for a mastery proc).  It is a spec that is about planning and using a secondary resource (combo points).  You need to be patient and properly pool your energy.

 

The stat priority laid out in the guide can be a bit confusing.  While each player/gear set will be different, you generally want:

agi>crit>haste=mastery

 

This is because bleeds are no longer the majority of our damage.  The best way to recover energy is to use the Soul of the Forest talent and have optimal usage of Tiger's Fury.

 

-I hope this helped.  If you have further questions, feel free to post them or pm me.

Because your tier 6 talents (gained at level 90) do not help boost your performance in your primary role. They are there to help you perform other roles, to support your theme of being a hybrid. So, in the case of Heart of the Wild, they allow you to perform other roles better (such as tanking, healing, or doing ranged DPS).

      It's time to find out what awaits us in Patch 8.2.5 which is now available for playtesting on Public Test Realms.
      Welcome to our Patch 8.2.5 content hub. We will be frequently updating it with links to our latest news coverage.
      Patch 8.2.5 Release Date Speculuation
      Based on the datamined Vulpera mug icon, it's safe to assume that the Allied Race will go live before next Brewfest, which is on or before September 20th.
      Allied Races
      While no Allied Races have been confirmed for Patch 8.2.5, we're speculating that Blizzard is adding Mechagnomes and the Vulpera of Vol'dun this time around.
      The Future of Allied Races Vulpera Coming in Patch 8.2.5 New Goblin and Worgen Models
      Blizzard is adding new models for both races introduced back in Cataclysm. Blizzard confirmed that there will be no Heritage Armor in 8.2.5.
      Goblin and Worgen Models Preview Celebrate 15 Years of Warcraft
      November 2019 marks the 15th anniversary of World of Warcraft, and players who log in during the event period will receive a celebration package in the mail with a Lil' Nefarian pet and other in-game goodies. Throughout the duration of the event, you’ll be able to participate in three unique raids with iconic encounters from past expansions along with an old-school-inspired Alterac Valley battleground. Players who defeat all nine bosses in the raid wings will receive the Obsidian Worldbreaker, a Black Dragonflight mount inspired by Deathwing. Players who participate in Alterac Valley will receive a new anniversary event currency which can be exchanged for two new mounts: the Stormpike Battle Charger (Alliance) and the Frostwolf Snarler (Horde).
      Obsidian Worldbreaker Mount Preview Frostwolf Snarler & Stormpike Battle Charger Mount Preview 15th Anniversary Alabaster Mounts Honeyback Harvester (Bee Mount)
      Alliance players will finally be able to get their hands on the long-awaited Bee mount (Honeyback Harvester)
      Where Is My Bee Mount? New Timewalking Raid: Firelands
      When Cataclysm Timewalking is active, max-level players will be able to form raid groups and enter the Sulfuron Spire once more. As with previous Timewalking raids (Black Temple, Ulduar), your gear and power are scaled to the challenge, and all the bosses and rewards you expect lie in wait.
      Party Sync
      Blizzard is experimenting with a new mode in the forthcoming patch that makes it easier for players in a party to do quests and play together: Party Sync. When players activate Party Sync, everyone in the party becomes aligned to the same quest state, including phases. By mousing over a quest in your tracker, you can see who is on the quest, what their progress is, and who’s ready to turn in the quest. There’s something else we’re going to try out on the PTR, a “replay” quest feature. This will allow players who have already completed certain quests to replay those quests with their friends for rewards that are appropriate to their current level, regardless of the original level of the quest.
      They're also relaxing level restrictions on queueing for instanced content with your friends. This allows lower-level players to queue for content in their level range, and higher-level players can choose to join them by having their level scaled down while they’re in the instance. This feature will be available for dungeon instances for PTR Week 1, with PvP instances being flagged in the following weeks. Please note that unlike Timewalking, when your level is scaled down via Party Sync you will temporarily lose access to abilities and powers (such as Azerite traits) with requirements that exceed your reduced level.
      Recruit A Friend Returns
      Coming in 8.2.5 is a revamped Recruit A Friend system. If you have active game time you’ll be able to recruit your friends—both brand-new to the game and returning champions—to share in your adventures. To do so, you’ll be able to use a new URL generation tool to create a custom link to give to your friends. By following the link, you’ll be connected to each other and will be able to see if they have purchased game time, resulting in rewards for you! For each month your recruits have active game time, you’ll earn a new reward such as unique pets, mounts, game time and more. These rewards unlock per month and scale with how many months your recruits have subscribed for. And, of course, with Party Sync you’ll be able to journey with your friends on any of your characters. We’ll have more information about Recruit A Friend rewards before 8.2.5 release.
      Recruit-a-Friend Mount Preview: Explorer's Dunetrekker The Story Continues...
      We datamined new models for Wrathion, Valeera, Zekhan, and Calia Menethil in 8.2.5 Build 31337. Wrathion is part of the story in the new patch and he's involved in a Karazhan Scenario and we also found a new Hearthstone Tavern in the game.

      In the following section, you'll find a summary of what's been added in the latest 8.2.5 PTR builds.

    • By Stan
      Sadly, there will be no Heritage Armor added in Patch 8.2.5.
      Both Goblins and the Worgen received new models in Patch 8.2.5, but Blizzard today confirmed that they were no plans for any Heritage Armor questlines, even though the latest MMORPG.com interview claims the direct opposite.
      Blizzard (Source)
      So according to the interview with Morgan Day and Shani Edwards on MMORPG dot com, it was mentioned that the heritage armor sets for worgen and goblins will be landing at the same time as the model upgrades.
      I lack the posting count to have permission to include links in my posts but the article on there is titled “New World of Warcraft 8.2 Info: Tyrande, Sylvanas, Customization, OH MY!” for those who want to go have a look themselves. Here’s a quote, though:
      "Goblin and Worgen fans will be pleased to hear that the long-awaited model update for each will be arriving in a future content patch.
      “Shortly after Rise of Azshara, you’ll see that,” Morgan explained. “These are the two races that haven’t been updated. They’ll have new heritage armor with that as well.”
      Is this still going to be the case? I ask because there was no mention of this in the development notes for the 8.2.5 PTR. Can we get some blue confirmation as to whether or not those plans have changed?
      Hello.
      I can confirm that 8.2.5 does not include any new Heritage Armor questlines
