They're a bit different to play in MOP than Cata. You now MUST keep up SR at all times, or be doing 30% less damage (both white attacks and bleeds). In Cata, SR was pretty much optional.

Same as always, your weapon is crucial. Wpn dmg > agi > all.

You're also reforging Crit -> Haste on your belt... Not that this is going to kill your DPS, but Haste is our weakest stat atm.

(I won't comment on no gems / enchants, since I have none either, but I've not really been doing much other than achievs, so... :P)

I'm curious what you did as a feral druid in 2004-2005 once you hit level 60.

No gems/enchants and Incarnation with HoTW doesn't really have the synergy as Soul of the Forest/HoTW, for PvE. You should be able to hit 7.5/7.5 Hit/expertise respectively in that gear and that should help you smooth out the rotation.

Since you last played there have been some changes.
1. The MSV fights have been nerf'd by 10% health and 10% damage.
2. The people you are raiding with now have either changed, or are now much better geared.

These two things combined would likely result in a much faster kill then when you first did so in late October. If so you arn't likely to get that perfect line up of cooldowns, or use them as often. Also you are likely a bit out of pratice.

We haven't seen any real nerfs in the last 4 months (NV isn't really much of a nerf PVE wise).

Ah thanks was wondering what was going on keep my savage roar up all the time rake and rip with no early clips sunder buff at all times. Bite at 25% for refreshing rip or extra energy if extra time to regain energy use thrash on procs. Yesterday i won 5 pieces of gear i noticed drop rates increased now my dps went over 64k just gotta wait for the perfect time to buy gems since my server is dead 500g per gem.

Guess i gotta catch up on gear then since today i got 2 shoted by a rogue doing dailies used all my cd's hes health was at 100% not even moving lol.

Using Hot for the 6% stam and agi but guess i can switch for the 10% bonus damage 1.5 min cd and thanks ill reforge again try to balance out my hits at the 7.5 mark. And for the gems im waiting for the perfect time when its cheap its expensive in my dead server no one around always empty.

weapon dmg > agi > mastery > hit=exp > crit >>>>>>> haste

mastery is godly, haste is the spawn of satan for feral
