Not sure about the state of feral druids but it seems their dots are alot more potent than an affliciton locks or spriest.

Is this intended?

Didnt you get the memo? Affliction isnt a DoT spec anymore. Its a direct damage nuke spec that happens to have multiple debuffs to keep up.

It is intended. If you research class mechanics, you'll figure out why.

So when will ferals have to spend 15 seconds putting up shadow embrace x3, haunt, UA, shadow bolt just to have their dots start ticking?

And at 85 you can turn that into 21 seconds because we also need to add dark intent and the soul fire debuff (every 15 seconds no less) to that list.

Oh... wait... ferals have none of that... instead, they get stealth, berserk, bash, pounce - such balance!

Yeah... affliction is really a "dot" spec these days. What a joke. "Masters of drains and dots" as the talent screen says.... I think not.


Affliction is totally borked at the moment due to poor developer choices I give you that... but this has NOTHING to do with ferals...

The same day we put our DoTs on more than 2 players at once.


Have you seen the pitiful damage affliction dots do without that full row of debuffs I listed? They tick for less than 1000/tick. They are worthless. Heck, we practically have no dots left since all they've done the past years is remove our dots and add more hard cast spells.


Again this is not because of Ferals... please go after the REAL source of the problems... poor dev choices.

sounds like an aff problem, not a feral problem. c/d?
