[Feral] - Prioritizing FB over Rip?

4 posts in this topic

I watched some feral streamers play this way over the weekend. Basically gearing for as much crit as you can, using BT + TF/B and hitting FB, not even using Rip at all. Turns us into huge bursty cats (which is good for PvP). 

 

I tried this running some 5mans and saw my own single target DPS go up, 1-2k'ish on most fights.

 

Is this something useful for PvE as an alt rotation for some fights? Or is this best left to PvP only and thus I should avoid creating muscle memory for it in PvE content?

In a raid setting, you won't want to play this way.  Many times in PvP, those quick bursty moments are what makes the damage unhealable especially with 2-3 players focusing damage on 1 target.

 

Running a quick sim and taking out anything related to Rip gives you:

 

Rip: 37600

FB: 33300

 

That equates to ~11% loss

Thanks for talking sense back into me @Paloro. I figure this was best left for PvP...but it is a fun playstyle.

An FB rotation is not only for PvP, but also any target that won't live long enough to have Rip ticking for 24 seconds. On durable targets, you want to have Rip up all the time. When fighting squishies, you can safely leave it out of your rotation.

      Hi.
      I been leveling up my balance druid, and while questing I noticed that there is a proc connected to Moonkin Form named Owlkin Frenzy. I was wondering how to best utilize the proc. I looked in the balance guide, but didn't even see any mention of it. So far I've just used it directly togheter with Lunar Empowerment.

      Union is an Alliance guild on Uldum (PVE server) - I will keep this short. We are looking to add two ranged dps to our core mythic team. We would prefer a hunter/shadow priest/boomkin. We are currently 9/10 Heroic in Nighthold after 2 nights of heroic raiding. We were 7/7M in EN and 2/3M in ToV. We raid:

      Tuesday - 8-11 EST
      Thursday - 8-11 EST
      Sunday 7-11 EST

      We recruit players that have a good attitude, have high dps and are good with mechanics and movement. 

      If interested, add me on btag: Stormcaster#1629
