Aug 29, 2012 Tank question What should I be reforging as a feral tank?Katmando9 Aug 29, 2012
Aug 29, 2012 is this a glitch or did i miss something? I was playing around with feral dps, and i was on the training dummy and realized i was having ALOT of attacks missing and being dodged, currently im sitting around 8% expertise/8% hit (i realized the cap is supposed to be 7.5% but i havent really taken alot of time to play with my reforge) needless to say im over the cap. I went and just sat and attacked the dummy: In 300 Shreds, 20 were dodged (6.7%), 21 missed (7%) In 731 melee white hits, 59 were dodged (8.1%), 43 missed (5.9%) along with that i had 5 faerie fires miss (i didnt keep track of how many hit) and i typhooned once, and it missed. I was under the impression that the sum of your hit/expertise was what constituted your spell hit cap, making me at 16% spell hit for a 15% cap. Has this happened to anyone else? did i misread something and this is normal? any comments would be appreciated.Roopesbak2 Aug 29, 2012
Aug 29, 2012 How do I go about the Hit stats now? So I had spirit before hand, which capped me in hit rating, via the Boomie talent. Now since there isn't spirit anymore, do I just have to waste other stats...for hit rating, since I have exactly no Hit at all.? I'm going to pvp Resto btw. Any feedback is appreciated.Oarx1 Aug 29, 2012
Aug 29, 2012 The Stag [Glyph] Calling it now: this glyph is BROKEN! You can hop on the druid's back while in combat, giving someone a quick escort to safety. With Feline Swiftness and 4-piece feral PvP bonus you'll both be moving at 185% move speed, and with Stampeding Roar active you'll both be moving at 296% move speed. Best part is its a minor glyph. Edited in a correction. Even more powerful than I thought!Daaria3 Aug 29, 2012
Aug 29, 2012 Thanks Blizzard! -A PvP boomkin/resto I have mobility, self-peels, and survivability! Plus I have even more burst healing than 4.3 ret paladins! Appreciate it. <3Balance7 Aug 29, 2012

Aug 29, 2012 Boomkin Stat Priorities Hello Fellow druids, I have raid in a few hours, so I am trying to get this toon ready. I have a few questions about the new Boomkin Stat Priorities. I am currently at 3120 Haste with my gear, but because of this my crit is fairly low(14-15%). Should I reforge down to the 1589 breakpoint, so I can get more crit. and mastery? or should I reforge/gem down to the 3099 breakpoint, and just work with whatever crit/mastery I can get with that much haste?Zultani8 Aug 29, 2012
Aug 29, 2012 Glyph of stars Why does it not act like Shadow form where I can use costumes and still gain the buffs from the form?Seradi1 Aug 29, 2012
Aug 29, 2012 Feral Faerie Fire missing? I guess it's on the spell hit table now? How irritating if that's 'working as designed'. And it doesn't show up in the "My Actions tab" either.Mendol2 Aug 29, 2012
Aug 29, 2012 I'm diggin' the new travel form! I always envisioned the travel form as some sort of hooved mammal, and finally, it's happened! Now my little hoofprint icon makes sense for travel form. I'd love to be able to fight in this form with abilities like skewer and kick, but I won't look a gift horse in the mouth on that.Scrubjay1 Aug 29, 2012
Aug 29, 2012 Wild Charge to my treant? Is this possible? I'd love to use it in pvp/duels.Bobgnarley2 Aug 29, 2012
Aug 29, 2012 Boomkin 5.0.4 Hit cap I'm at the 15% hit cap that makes for boss targets to not be missed. And yet I still miss on these raid dummies. Anybody else having these issues? And is there anybody else that can explain what is going on?Caihn3 Aug 29, 2012
Aug 29, 2012 Can anyone get Dominoes or Vuhdo to work? title. please let me know how if so...Aeropostle1 Aug 29, 2012
Aug 29, 2012 Frenzied Regen glyph unlearnt Most of the old Prime Glyphs seem to have been converted to Majors that now do the same thing - however Frenzied Regen did not.. please fix?Autumni0 Aug 29, 2012
Aug 29, 2012 Feral Kitty Guide for patch? I have found the Guardian guide written by Arielle on the incbear.com site but have been having a trickier time finding a decent feral cat guide that doesn't necessarily revolve around pvp. Has someone perhaps written one and it's been buried? If someone could link one for me, I'd be happy to help keep it at the top so all the ferall kitties will have somewhere quick and easy to go for questions.Kelsquicker4 Aug 29, 2012
Aug 29, 2012 Moonfire/Sunfire missing ALOT I am at 15% hit, and yet on the training dummy it is acting like I have 0% hit chance. My DoT's keep missing! Anybody else having this issue? Also, Ursol's Vortex isn't pulling people in after they leave in duels, but I'm more concerened about my DoT's missing since I raid tonight.Nedenblaster4 Aug 29, 2012
Aug 29, 2012 Dodge bug? Logged onto my bear tank today and dropped from 39%+ dodge to only 20%. I'm wondering if this is a bug as it's making my druid very squishy.Frosh3 Aug 29, 2012
Aug 29, 2012 New Druid question Hello, I wish to level a kitty druid, I selected troll for berserking however omg i think trolls are so stupid looking to the point i see it not being any fun. So question is end game does berserking really make that much of a differenceApocalyptic1 Aug 29, 2012
Aug 28, 2012 Feral DPS So, I used to be a haste stacking druid, until 5.0.4 hit. I'm now realizing that mastery scales sooooooo high. Mastery is definitely the primary stat right now. One thing I noticed though, my melee auto attack is hitting for an average of 700, is this a bug? Or is this normal? Cause this is kind of stupid. Anybody else's hitting for this low?Aikeaux4 Aug 28, 2012
Aug 28, 2012 Bad Kitty/Balance Equivalent I had used Bad Kitty in the past; is there a "better" addon for feral? What is the Balance Equivalent to Bad Kitty?Jaweko0 Aug 28, 2012
Aug 28, 2012 Feral Charge Did we lose our ability to charge ? Or did they rename it to something else?Whotee2 Aug 28, 2012
Aug 28, 2012 How are the kitties in the new patch? Are they going to be okay? Good? Terrible? I love my kitty but I heard some scary stuff about them changing a lot. Will it affect their overall damage and use? I hope it's still playable and worth trying out.Solarbeam9 Aug 28, 2012

Aug 28, 2012 druids in mop! so what r u guys gonna do exactly? ive noticed that especially for kitties things are gonna be a huge change. no more survival instincts, no more thick hide for more suvivability, and no more off tanking if ur tank dies. not only this but ive noticed a huge nerf to shred and ravage as well. these are just a few of the things i myself have seen while checkin out the panda talents. so my question is... what will ferals do? their middle of the pack at best now, but what about mist? especially in pvp are u gonna be done for good? only the panda beta will tell....Artrin10 Aug 28, 2012
Aug 28, 2012 "Aspects" for the Druid? What if, instead of transforming from one form to another as a Druid, we instead kept our original form/armour, but got the same stats as if we WERE in a different form. Think of it like a minor/major glyph. You can either tank in bear form like normal and stare endlessly at the big bear behind, or you can activate your new glyph and tank in your "normal" form. SOME kind of inclination for which form you are in could be nice (EG: Different coloured eyes for different forms (Red=Bear, Yellow=Kitty, Blue=Boomkin, Green=Resto), or something along those lines. Yes, I know that people will be accusing this of being just a blatant copy of the "Aspects" that Hunters use, but this will give Druid the chance to show off their hard earned gear/transmogs. Thoughts?Sken11 Aug 28, 2012
Aug 28, 2012 Questionable bear guide http://www.icy-veins.com/guardian-druid-wow-pve-tank-statistics-priority-reforging My understanding is that you want hit/expertise cap followed up with enough haste and crit to get to a certain level of rage generation, then worry about other stats. Is it just me or is this guide backwards?Tenshirou11 Aug 28, 2012
Aug 28, 2012 A wish to be a stag The new stag travel-form graphic is beautiful. My only regret is that no form of mount training will allow it to go fast enough to be used in replacement of a regular ground mount. I can understand concerns in pvp and battlegrounds, and I'm fine with normal speed while in arenas and battlegrounds, but I can't but help wish for 100% speed in pve so I can use it instead of a mount, just because it is that beautiful.Kyrsyii22 Aug 28, 2012
Aug 28, 2012 5.0.4 what's everyone doing? Hey guys just curious as to what everyone's plan is for the patch tomorrow. What are you doing to prepare for the changes and what talents are you going to be taking and why? What do you think will be strong in pve or a pvp context? From my perspective (as a feral pve dps) i've decided to ditch my mastery build and I am going all out haste because i've heard our white damage is now a very large portion of our dps. As for talents; i'm still trying to decide between Incarnation and SoTF which i heard has been buffed but isn't working correctly. I would be very keen to hear other ferals opinions on this or from someone who has tested PTR.Peha23 Aug 28, 2012
Aug 28, 2012 MOP Bear PvP Possibilities So I'm looking at how MOP is shaping up for Feral PvP and... I'm not happy. Savage Roar, Detox, no free Ravage, etc. Bear form, on the other hand, doesn't have to deal with any of those problems (except for Thrash and Lacerate bleeds, which is still a much less significant DPS loss than Pounce, Rip, and Rake if they get wiped). It's going to be less DPS, of course, but I think it may be less of an issue than you would think. Of course, I'm completely theorycrafting here (WTB beta invite, blah blah blah), so it could just be a mad fantasy. Stacking Agility, Stamina, crit, and... I don't know, haste? http://mop.wowhead.com/mists-of-pandaria-talent-calculator#dyji From stealth, open up with Mangle, Rake, and Ferocious Bite, if you can. Most people are a little slow on reaction times if they're not expecting you and will let you get this much off before doing anything particularly effective. If that's not the case, cut your losses and move to the next step when you deem it necessary. Typhoon! If they're a melee, they can't retaliate immediately, and if they're a caster you can--with luck--avoid some of the PBAoE CC by creating some distance quickly and/or interrupt their cast by knocking them halfway across the map and dazing them. Everybody wins. (This is where it gets a little dicey. I don't know exactly what's on the GCD and all that, so bear (!) with me here.) Bear Form, Might of Ursoc, Renewal, and Wild Charge/Skull Bash (as appropriate). Bear Hug. This is why no Pounce. If you and your target have 100k health in caster form, then in Bear Form (20% more Stamina from Bear, 5% more Stamina from Leather Specialization, and 30% more from Might of Ursoc and Renewal) you'll have about ~163k. Three tics of damage equal to 10% of your life each (assuming no tic at 0s) is about ~49k damage. If you stacked Stamina, it's even more. Regardless, Bear Hug alone is almost half your opponent's health in this scenario. Yes, you had to blow a 3min CD, a 2min CD, and a 1min CD to pull it off, but it is (theoretically) doable. Also, Bear Hug stuns your opponent, but only immobilizes you, which I hope to Hell means that I can keep attacking. Faerie Fire, Mangle, Lacerate, Thrash, and Maul to your heart's content. Incarnation if you want to make make new holes in your new best friend. Frenzied Regen and Disentanglement as needed. If they try to flee, drop Ursol's Vortex to hold 'em in place. Someone in beta please tell me this is possible. I wanna go Ursus arctos horribilis on some poor sap.Patchwork23 Aug 28, 2012
Aug 28, 2012 boomkin 5.0 spec and glyphs can someone hook me up for pve and if theres a pvp one that would be killerAddeen20 Aug 28, 2012
Aug 28, 2012 Kitty in MOP I cant be bothered going through all the forums to look for this answer, so can someone tell me how kitty cat will be on mop for bg's and arena? i have heard that they have been nerfed, and also overpowered in bleeds. I have gone through many beta forums but cant find answers. CheersAgnaband3 Aug 28, 2012
Aug 28, 2012 Boomkin 5.0.4 questions Hello my fellow druids, I have a few questions about Boomkin gear now that the new patch has hit. First question is: with our new stat priorities is the Boomkin chest piece(Deep Earth Vestment) now BiS over the Resto chest(Deep Earth Robes) ? My next question is: is the trinket Cunning of the Cruel better than Insignia of the Corrupted Mind now that haste has lost a lot of it's value?Zultani4 Aug 28, 2012
Aug 28, 2012 MoP: Boomkin AoE Is it hurricane spam or tab multi-dot again? (please say hurricane spam, I hate multi dotting with a passion)Owlzone7 Aug 28, 2012
Aug 28, 2012 Leader of the Pack ONLY for Guardian spec??? I was just looking at the MoP talent calculator on wowhead and just noticed this. So no LoTP for feral spec? Kind a huge nerf to cat crit, heals and mana regen. Is this going live? =\Adápt3 Aug 28, 2012
Aug 28, 2012 Wild Mushroom Bloom Hello, I was just wondering if anyone could comment on how Wild Mushroom Blood will/wont effect deep corruption from the purple ooze from Your'sahj in DS. I did a quick search but couldnt find anything that stated if it will give everyone effected a stack or notShâpe4 Aug 28, 2012
Aug 28, 2012 The end of a mountless era I started this druid back in classic, played heavily in BC, and raided tiers 11 and 12, and during all this time, I have stuck to one rule despite however much trouble it caused me. I have not used a single mount. I use travel form, flight form, and the occasional kitty sprint, but I have never sat atop a kodo or a wind-rider. http://us.battle.net/wow/en/character/turalyon/Torokani/mount On one hand, it makes me sad that in two days I will no longer have a choice in the matter, as my main has over 100 mounts that will suddenly become available to me, but on the other hand, it will be nice to be able to hop on my own mammoth instead of hoping someone has a passenger mammoth in any outdoor raids. Running to Rhyolith or Baleroc after a wipe in travel form was a pain.Torokani9 Aug 28, 2012
Aug 28, 2012 Healing Touch Macro So I noticed that one of the talents in MoP has feral cats using healing touch in their rotation to keep up their damage buff. (using healing touch every time predatory swiftness or w/e comes up) I'm looking for a healing touch macro that will let me stay on my current target while i have my focus set to the main tank healing him. Would this be like how a rogue uses tricks?Aemeel3 Aug 28, 2012
Aug 28, 2012 Traffic Light Since we all might be bored today with the downtime I thought I would give us something fun to talk about. I was headed to work today approaching a green light. As I got closer it turned yellow. The first thing that came to my mind was "I hope dash is off CD!" I might need to take a break from the druid... Or I could just install NOS :D Does anyone else have druid like tendencies that get mixed up IRL?Earthreaver4 Aug 28, 2012
Aug 28, 2012 A question on the first tier talents So I haven't been keeping up with the MoP class changes, and I was wondering if someone could clear this up for me. First, I assume we're only going to be allowed to choose one talent out of the three for each tier, right? Secondly - are they removing catform's speed bonus and cat/bear charge, and making us choose between them for the new talents? If so I will be incredibly displeased, already not too fond of the feral tree split and the loss of pvp survivability. :[ Thank youXiggy6 Aug 28, 2012
Aug 28, 2012 Stampede - Ravage/Shred macro Hello, I've had a macro forever where I would shred if unstealthed and ravage if stealthed. It goes like: /cast [stealth]Ravage; [nostealth]Shred; However, now with stampede, when I cast Feral Charge I get a free Ravage without requiring stealth. My goal is to keep a 1 button macro except now it will do a Ravage instead of a Shred if Stampede is active. I've tried all sorts of ways to get it to work, but cannot. Has anyone successfully been able to do this? Can you post your macro please? Thanks Tassin13 Aug 28, 2012

Aug 28, 2012 Quick Macro Question Hello! I didn't see a sticky macro thread, so I'm sorry if I missed it. Basically, as my name states, I rawr when I'm a bear. I want to make a macro that will /s rawr when I shift TO Bear form, but when I shift OUT OF Bear form, it doesn't say anything. I am pretty bad with macros, so any and all help is much appreciated. Thanks!Bearsgorawr5 Aug 28, 2012
Aug 28, 2012 How will 5.0.4 effect T13 4 pc set bonus? Since our talents are changing how is stampede gonna work or is the set bonus getting reworked?Concealled2 Aug 28, 2012
Aug 28, 2012 revised stat priority for resto? I know the common consensus seems to be that you stack haste on your resto until 1st soft haste cap, then go for mastery. I have a friend that swears that since the latest patch, you should just stack Mastery. He is of the opinion that the benefits you get out of Mastery outweigh the extra tick you get on you HOTS from extra haste. Anyone agree? I have to say that my friend is an excellent healer.Holeymoly0 Aug 28, 2012

Aug 27, 2012 Recently 80.... Sup people. So per scroll of rez i selected my druid to go to 80 as heals. Are there any websites that any of you would recommend and/or some help you could provide regarding just healing some basic 5 man heroics. Needless to say it was a failbomb on the first try.
