Ferocious bite...

Druid
I have been finding that my 5 point combo ferocious bite with dps CDs blown hits for 45kish if I'm extremely lucky it's usually between 27k-35kish. When I am getting hit back to back for 70-100K a piece by casters and some melee.I was getting a little worried.I was hoping to watch my ferocious bite scale while lvling but my crits never got higher. I know stats come into play. I now we are bleed damage class. Kind of hard watching damage tick when you'e getting your face crit on. Any other feral's out there feel this?
I do feel that FB lost some of its "oomph" but its has always been a spell that takes up way to much energy for the damage it does. More noticeably now with energy and CP's the way they are.

TL:DR Yes FB doesnt hit as hard but I rarely use/used it anyway

As far as damage goes I feel great! I crit someone for a ridiculous amount yesterday in that awesome temple of kotmogu BG!
I'm gonna play around with it for a bit and switch some tactics up. I know our stats are low atm and mastery, crit are huge for pvp for us. I just feel that spamming mangle is mindless though. I love combo point mechanics. Incarnation with heart of the wild is pretty awesome with 5 combo points up is fun.

/cheers
Yes it hits very low compare to what it was in Wotlk. It should be buffed by almost 70-100%.

I reported this many times in beta forums and people come to me asking for logs :(
I hear ya man. I'm just getting tired of getting wrecked cause I cant keep up with my targets damage.
I'm not exactly 90 yet. But 1 day before MOP released I was hitting upwards of 50K+ FBs on people in BGs. I was extremely happy! Now that I don't have that gear and barely anyone has resil, I'm hitting really low full combo FBs, I hit a shadow priest without shield up for 5k full CP. My bleeds were ticking for 1-5k. I almost cried. He was nailing me in the face for 30k+ and practically losing zero mana even without his fiend. Seems mostly casters can nuke my face off in seconds. Maybe 90 with some gear will help? I hope. =/
i only use FB if they are close to dying

Hell my 85 priest crits harder than my druid, and its a dot based class.


false. exaggerate more.
Leveling this guy was a pain.. I think druids got shafted a little on overall damage..
Ive noticed the same, my dps is horrible compared to other classes, in bgs, casters are litteraly nukeing people with 20k dps im like.. 6k, fb sucks i dont use it because it sucks too much energy. Feral needs to be tuned big time... tis lacking in the dps department. lol
I am completely baffled that after keeping SR and Rip up 24/7 while keeping some points on for a quick maim if needed, that you still have any resources left for a FB.

Um, Feral is also a dot based spec...

Try using savage roar, tiger's fury and getting five CP before applying rip then come back saying feral dots do no damage.
In my feral grinding gear (mostly greens and some blues) I've had FB crits on mobs for 140k or more. Just make sure you are above 50 energy when you cast it so it gets the extra energy to make it double it's damage. FB's damage is very dependent on procs/buffs. When grinding I can do 5 point FBs with greater than 50 energy and the damage range is pretty extreme. I wish it was more consistent.
145k bite as resto with NV up =3
