My leveling Spec @ 70

Lets start with the first 5 points…

5/5 Ferocity – When grinding and leveling we rip not bite so no Feral Aggression
3/3 Feral Instinct – We want the best chance of going undetected in stealth
2/2 Savage Fury – +20% Mangle DMG
3/3 Thick Hide – For bear O crap moments
2/2 Feral Swiftness – +30% faster in cat form even indoors now and +4% to dodge
1/1 Survival Instincts – Another O crap button but used in Cat or Bear
3/3 Sharpened Claws – +6% to crit
3/3 Preditory Strikes – Bonus attack power
NO SHREDING ATTACKS – not wasting 2 points on shred or lacerate
1/1 Feral Charge – now used in cat form as well.
NO Nurturing Instinct
2/2 Primal Fury – Faster combo points
2/2 Primal Precision – 10 Expertise and 80% refund of energy on missed attacks
5/5 Heart of the Wild – Greater Int, STA, and AP
3/3 Survival of the Fittest – Increase of all stats and less chance to get Crit
1/1 Leader of the Pack – +5% to Crit
3/3 Preditory Instincts – +10% damage to Crits
3/3 Infected Wounds – -20% of attackers attack speed
1/1 Mangle – of course
3/3 King of the Jungle – Tiger Fury gives an instant 60 Energy
2/2 Improved Mark of the Wild – increased stats

3/5 Furor – I don’t shift much between mobs when leveling so I am fine using this as a filler and getting 60 energy on shift
5/5 Naturalist – +10% damage
NO Natural Shapeshifter – see above, when I level I don’t shift out of form much
1/1 Omen of Clarity

Ok, 4 points left…

Going with 2/2 Improved Leader of the Pack – Free heals and mana return while in form
2/2 Brutal Impact – 1 more sec on the initial pounce stun so maybe 1 more shred.

Notice I am not going with our 51 point Berserk talent. Sorry but for leveling I think I will live without it until level 71

71 – 1/1 Berserk
72, 73, 74 – 3/3 Mother bear (might start needing this to tank instances)
75, 76, 77 – 3/3 Natural Reaction (might go back and forth with this and the above between 72-77)
78, 79 – Improved Mangle

80 – All bets are off, depending on what I am needed for raiding will determine my build and by then a lot of these talents might have changed.

Here is my level 70 Spec come Tuesday…

    I still don’t see the point of Improved mangle… still seems like a waste of a 2 talent points. Especially since Swipe has no target modifier and scales with AP. Unless I am single target tanking, imp Mangle is useless in Bear. And just less energy seems a waste as a cat… maybe I am wrong, but I can’t see it.

    I guess just because while leveling most kitty DPS is coming from mangle.

    Pounce, shred, shred, rip then mangle spam?

    I dunno, I am too impatient for a maim walk around wait for energy shred.

    P.S. Note I only take it for 2 levels before 80… then I would rethink the whole thing.

  • Jason says:

    fair enough. I have just seen a lot of people mentioning it in their raiding build…
