Explanation about ferals.

Feral damage is too high for the amount of CC they have, but the solution to this I think is to make them choose, upon getting 5 points you can either USE the 5 points to make the next casted ability instant OR use the 5 points to do damage with a finisher. This makes them choose damage or CC which is how it should be.


Good call

Yeah, lets complain about feral druids when locks and shaman are still the primary problems with arena. LOL

Change berserk to 15-18 second solid duration (down from 25 with the glyph)

Make the talent have an ICD of 10-15 seconds

Buff their damage in Pve by making faerie fire also give a passive 10% damage increase or something kind of like what you did for warriors and then nerf us back to 4.1 damage

Retool bleeds, make them do a lot of damage but make them despellable but give them some despell protection but make it less than the total damage that would have been done if the bleed would have continued to tick (something like 40% by default but talented to 60% of remaining damage done) retool pred swift in the way Nel said but make clone able to be cast in kitty form. mobility is fine, survivability is fine. Bleeds are the only dot not able to be despelled, making them despellable could allow blizz to buff PVE sustained damage but still allow feral to have ok damage in pvp. just my .02

I've been hit for 37k with 3.8k Resil by a feral, then 34k, then 32k, etc.

If only I did take a screenshot, but trust me, it happens. Every single FB crit is 30k+

I think Neilyo's suggested change would be absolutely perfect. It's similar to how Rets were before the 20 second cooldown change to Word of Glory, which i thought was an awesome mechanic to have a choice on Damage or Support/Utility.

can't nerf damage/berserk duration otherwise we will be !@#$ in PvE (already pretty far behind compared to other classes), instant clone probably has to go but in that case we have to have more mobility or we simply won't be useful to have on an arena team again

I usually hit R-druids for about ~28,500 which is why it needs nerfed a little bit but compare that to other classes, its time for damage to go down as a whole.
