Patch 4.0.6 and other news

So the latest patch hit last week.

About the only thing that changed for feral (once the energy bug was fixed) was that Unheeded Warning is now near BiS or is BiS until Heroic ilvl trinkets.

Agility is still king, Mastery is still next, Crit and Haste seem to be about even or close enough that you shouldn’t fret over it.

We downed Twilight Ascendant Council.

We have started on Cho’gall and we are learning that this is going to be a tough fight with 3 melee and only 2 ranged.

I have slowly been working on my Boomkin set. Unfortunately my Kitty set is so epic I can’t get near my DPS output to switch over and help at range. Should have a Volcano card soon which will help and hopefully some caster gear will start falling for us that isn’t cloth pants.

I am going to update my gear page to reflect my current kitty gear. I am going to ditch any references to bear gear on that page as it is perfectly acceptable to tank 5 man heroics in my kitty set and I don’t tank raids.

Don’t let anyone tell you feral DPS is toward the bottom of DPS charts. If you are doing it right and you are geared properly you should be toward the top on just about ever encounter. This takes holding certain abilities at certain times, using kitty leap, keybinding and using macro’s, using Dash, and giving 110% effort. It’s not a face roll to top charts, but it is entirely possible.

    I’ve got extra ‘made’ DMC: volcano cards if you are still in need of one, hit me up in game.

    Wow, you really don’t pay attention to the state of feral dps all, do you?

    This is an absolutely absurd comment. It couldn’t be further from the truth. In your raids, perhaps you are near the top, which would mean the other players in your guild suck. The simple fact of the matter is that feral cat dps is near the middle on every single cata raid. http://stateofdps.com/ It’s time to educate yourself instead of basing all your opinions inside of what happens in your bubble.

    Seems to me WOW you need to check other metrics…
    Kitty DPS is great (if a little less john Madden than it used to be) the most important thing in game for DPS is staying alive and Learning To Play.
    But at the endo of the day, it doesn’t matter how high peeps are on the charts as 4long as bosses die!

    My dps increased slightly post-4.0.6, so I would have to agree with you that we are not in a bad place at the moment. On single-target fights, I find myself near the top of the meters in our guild raids and generally in the top two of the melee. Because certian other classes got quite a buff in the patch there’s more competition at the top, but I certainly do not feel like dead weight being carried and I do feel like I can compete with everyone except our shadow priest.

  • Puffik says:

    Agreed with Unglar, post 4.06 I also feel like my DPS went up a little bit. Yes, I finally got the epic wrists :-) however still do not have my 2 pcs set bonus (we do mostly 25man, but I spent some DKP also for my bear for our 10man) and I usually sit around 6th or 7th spot on the counter. Rogues, hunter, sometimes warlock do outDPS me for nice portion but they don’t have to innervate and BR, do they :-)
    Guys, on another note, since I am far from expertise cap, does it make sense to change gear (I had a lot of expertise on my bear gear) and reforge to get the cap for Al’Akir?
