Thought I'd share something Williee on MMO-Champion shared in a bear thread!

#showtooltip Nature's Swiftness

/run SetCVar("autoUnshift",0)

/cast nature's swiftness

/cast healing touch

/run SetCVar("autoUnshift",1)

No shifting NS macro for bear and cats! I've also worked it into Clique. More info on:

If you want it to cast on yourself (for a bear/cat) use:

/cast [@player] Healing Touch

EDIT: This only applies if for some reason you want to cast it on yourself and are targeting a friendly unit. If you are targeting an enemy then Tova's above macro will work fine to cast on yourself. My addition to the macro will just assure it is cast on yourself =P

Hey. It took me ages to get to this thread, and for that I apologize.

The macro seems to work fine, and changing the autoUnshift value is very clever :)

I've updated the guides with this macro now (should be up shortly). Thank you!

That's excellent. I tried a similar macro before, but I never could find a solution that didn't shift me out of cat form. Now to think about the possibilities.

I play Feral. The Feral rotation relies on Energy banking and is not GCD locked, so sparing the time to cast Healing Touch in order to boost the damage of special attacks is a good synergy. But making it work together with Nature's Swiftness is a pain, because if you have both Nature's Swiftness and Predatory Swiftness active, using Healing Touch will consume them both with no additional benefit. So it is necessary to find a dedicated spot in the rotation for Nature's Swiftness.

Any Feral that takes DoC has become accustomed to following each 5-point finisher with a Healing Touch, to use Predatory Swiftness procs to proc DoC. Given that, it seems to me the optimal use of a NS/HT combo, in order not to conflict with PS procs, would be before applying Rip and Rake. To squeeze out even more DPS, it would probably be wisest to then use Predatory Swiftness right away, use one charge of DoC on Shred, but then wait for either an Omen of Clarity proc or full energy to use the second one on Thrash for a third concurrent 50% stronger bleed.

I think that on a boss fight, the optimal opening rotation will now look like this:

Savage Roar with 0 points (requires Glyph of Savage Roar), from stealth

Ravage, from stealth

Rake

Faerie Fire (if Weakened Armor is not provided by a tank)

Tiger's Fury + Berserk + racial cooldowns + trinket

Shred to 5 combo points

Nature's Swiftness + Healing Touch macro

Consume DoC charges with:

Rip

Refresh/reapply Rake

Healing Touch (with the PS proc)

Thrash (if Berserk is still active or with Omen of Clarity proc)

Continue with normal priority list

Update: I tried this out as Feral, and if you use this macro while Predatory Swiftness is active, it will use Nature's Swiftness first, but it will not consume the Predatory Swiftness proc.

      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 👶
      friendly

      I'm trying to create a macro that will allow me to use Spirit Mend with the typical focus/mouseover modifiers but also allow me to use Exhilaration with a key modifier and can't seem to make all of this work together. Here's what I have but it's acting like the ALT modifier isn't even there.
      #showtooltip /cast [mod:alt][@mouseover,help,nodead][@focus,help,nodead][@player]Spirit Mend; Exhilaration Thank you in advance for any help!

      Any opinion on the Azerite gear with "Flesh rending"?
      I tried it and although it makes you add "Thrash" to your rotation, all your shreds now deal 926 more dmg, which brings Shred from 2090 dmg (2508 on bleeding targets) to 3016 (+20% on bleeding targets). My dps went up quite a lot since I took this Azerite talent.
      Although it is mentionned in the Icy Veins "Azerite Traits" page on the Feral DPS section, it does not appear on the Azerite Trait Chart, showing how much % it brings to you dps compared to other traits. I haven't seen any Youtube Feral Player mention it in their video either.
      I wonder if it would be worth it to change some feral talents for something that allows to cast more shreds (like Moment of clarity, etc.. 
      Try it. It's worth it. It might be our savior.
      Any opinion on this?
