./shrug You can say displacer beast is great... but try shredding a moving target without a 30% speed increase.
I didn't say it was end all, however it definitely stands a chance vs the base run increase. Will be a viable offspec (if not main). Lazy pvp ferals depend on running after something for the kill. I see that as an emergency tactic only. If you're a legit pvp feral atm rather than casual, you'll split half your focus on pvp bear. Which requires a much heavier setup and enemy awareness to get the kill (aka kittie speed helps 30-50% of the time).
Sure we're all a little bummed about losing some survivability with the tank spec separation, but none of us know exactly how much we're losing. I for one love some of the utility were going to get. I cant wait to try it outThe're giving us back our mobility! shifting out of roots! (and a freakin vanish!) Lets wait and see what happens.
Good to see someone with an open mind. Whoop whooop!
not having survivabilty in the next expac is goin to destroy us as ferals. not only is Fren. regen being taken away but survival instints and thick hide, not to mention savage defense, now i dont know how the rest of you pvp , but having those defensive capabilities allows us to strategize in a fight. without being demolished, you take that away and were done. cat stun locks pales in comparison to rogues..and we have to pop out and heal , with no intellect on gear..how do you think we will fair? our heals burn through too much mana.
Oh god, where do I start? Oh I know... QQQQQQQQQQQQQ :P
First off feral survivability? I assume you're talking about cat (you'd have to be) and cats have NEVER really had it. If you're popping survival instincts in cat you're A. wasting it bc of nubness B. using it in a suicide attempt to get the last 1000 health down on some enemy/flag carrier...neither are particularly worthwhile
Also I HOPE they take away frenzied regenation because if we had that aswell as shift heals, or that utility jump/heal and (the list goes on) we'd be pallies with razor sharp kitten paws & stealth O.o
Yes cats will have to learn to ACTUALLY be a rogue and use the utility supplied. Which most never have. Just pretend a blizzard employee dies everytime a feral allows him/herself to be attacked in pvp
har har, did you REALLY say kittie stunlock is pale in comparison? One of the biggest secrets about feral cat is their awesome stun capabilities. I've played a pvp rogue since just after beta; unless you have every ability timed down to a science there is not a great deal of room for mistakes. Cats have many "oops" utility skills without blowing a CD (like rogue). Plus compare Kidney shot to maim, the latter is 100% better, mainly from quicker coold rate. As is Cheapshot vs. pounce. Timed right and used together as an opener, you can get a 8+ second opener. I used to frequently do this or apply a bleed then switch instantly to bear. Then start applying separate dps setup from a different form. Both are peerless openers.
Did you really say "pop out to heal"? You ungreatful drood! We actually can
heal. And do so in a variety of ways to ourselves & others. Also intellect? Have you not read +agility = +intellect? They did nerf that down quite a bit, but if you're a knowledgeable feral you'd stack agil over every other possible option & have a worthwhile return when healing.
If those heals STILL arn't doing you justice, that means once again, blizzard employees are dying because you're stagnantly in cat allowing a beat down :/

Doesn't sound to well thought out. But thx for input.
