Feral Druid DPS Rotation HelpFollow

#1 Nov 03 2012 at 10:00 AM Rating: Decent
Hey guys,
I am currently a lvl 47 Feral Druid, with 3 heirlooms equipped, but I still find my dps to be low (350-450 dps in dungs;; and 250-350 questing). Is this normal for a druid with 3 heirlooms to have this dps?

My rotation:
Wild Charge ----> Mangle (until all 5 combos are up) ----> Ferocious Bite (Thrash for AoE)
Wild Charge ----> Rake ----> Shred (until all 5 combos are up) ---> Rip ----> Repeat shread ----> Ferocious Bite

Can my rotation be improved for a higher dps??

Thanks in Advance!

1. Single Target Rotation

Combo Point builders (by order of priority)
  1. Use Shred as your default Combo Point builder.
    • If you cannot attack the boss from behind, Mangle becomes your default Combo Point builder.
  2. Use Rake
    • Only to keep 100% uptime on the bleed effect that it applies (every 15 seconds).

Finishing Moves (by order of priority)
  1. Apply and maintain Savage Roar (preferably with 5 Combo Points).
  2. Apply and maintain Rip (with 5 Combo Points).
    • When the target is below 25% health use Ferocious Bite to refresh Rip. Use Ferocious Bite with 5 Combo Points preferably, unless Rip is about to wear off.

2. Multiple Target Rotation

When you are facing 2 targets, simply perform a single-target rotation on one of them. You can try to maintain Rake up on both of them.

If you are facing 3 or more targets, keep up your Savage Roar buff at all times, keep up the bleed effect from Thrash, and use use Swipe on cooldown. Use your remaining Combo Points to weave in Rip on the main target, if there is one.

Feral DPS sucks on targets that die fast, unless there are a lot of them, in which case you can spam Thrash and Swipe and get mad numbers.
Please "talk up" if your comprehension white-shifts. I will use simple-happy language-words to help you understand.
