Last updated on Apr 07, 2024 at 16:00 by Seksixeny 15 comments

On this page, you will learn how to optimize the rotation of your DPS Feral Druid, in WoW Classic - Season of Discovery. We also have advanced sections about cooldowns, procs, and others in order to minmax your damage efficiency.



We will present the skill rotation for Feral DPS as a priority list. This is not an exact sequence in which abilities should be cast. Instead, what it means is, whenever you must choose between using different skills, try to use the one at the top of the list first.

Our list assumes you are running the recommended build from the talents page and are playing a (currently maximum) level 50 character. If you are still leveling, please refer to the leveling-specific rotation located in the table of contents.


Single-Target Rotation for Feral Druid DPS

  1. Use Faerie Fire (Feral) Icon Faerie Fire (Feral) on pull to soften the target;
  2. Open with two Mangle Icon Mangle and Savage Roar Icon Savage Roar, taking care to refresh Mangle's debuff and Savage Roar's buff as needed;
  3. Use Glowing Gneuro-Linked Cowl  Icon Glowing Gneuro-Linked Cowl and Catnip  Icon Catnip (or Automatic Crowd Pummeler Icon Automatic Crowd Pummeler's) effects as soon as boss is fully armor debuffed by Faerie Fire (Feral) Icon Faerie Fire (Feral) and Sunder Armor Icon Sunder Armor or equivalent debuffs;
  4. Use Tiger's Fury Icon Tiger's Fury on cooldown when at 40 Energy or under to recover Energy with King of the Jungle Icon King of the Jungle;
  5. Use Berserk Icon Berserk on cooldown immediately after using Tiger's Fury Icon Tiger's Fury;
  6. Use any Omen of Clarity Icon Omen of Clarity procs on Shred Icon Shred;
  7. Use and refresh (after it expires) Rip Icon Rip at 5 Combo Points, preferably while under the effect of Tiger's Fury Icon Tiger's Fury;
  8. Use Shred Icon Shred as a filler for damage and combo point generation;
  9. Powershift to Cat Form for Energy if you just dropped to 0 or close.

Multi-Target Rotation for Feral DPS Druid

There is no multi-target rotation to speak of, against multiple targets you will simply perform the single-target rotation on the most dangerous targets one by one.

You can opt to swap your glove rune from Mangle Icon Mangle into Sunfire Icon Sunfire for more damage on heavily armored targets, split damage, or ranged damage capabilities, in which case you should be casting Sunfire instead of Mangle on the rotation listed above, and on as many different targets as possible.


Tiger's Fury

Tiger's Fury Icon Tiger's Fury is now a critical rotational tool with King of the Jungle Icon King of the Jungle, making you deal 15% more physical damage which snapshots on damage over time effects such as Rake Icon Rake and Rip Icon Rip and also 60 extra Energy, with a 30-second cooldown. You should use it whenever your Energy dips low enough that you will not overcap Energy with your next regeneration tick and also in preparation for strong burst with Berserk Icon Berserk and reapplication of your damage over time effects.


Powershifting in Season of Discovery

Powershifting is made possible by Furor Icon Furor's 40 Energy gain when shifting to Cat Form Icon Cat Form. You lose all Energy when shifting, making this not be an additional 40 Energy to what you had previously, but rather a reset to 40 Energy, no matter where you were at before.

Thus, because you can shapeshift from cat into cat for Mana with /cast !Cat Form macro, you can press it when close to 0 Energy to trade some Mana for 40 Energy, increasing your DPS potential drastically!
