TBC Classic Feral Dps Druid Guide

Introduction

    Every raid will want at least one Feral Druid because of the utility provided by
    Leader of the Pack
    . Due to Power Shifting (details below), this spec has one of the more involved rotations of the expansion. They also have the added benefit of being able to tank content without needing to respec.

TBC Feral Dps Druid Rotation

    Power Shifting correctly is critical for Feral Druids. Shifting into
    Cat Form
    will generate 60 energy because of
    Furor
    and
    Wolfshead Helm
    and you passively generate 20 energy every 2 seconds regardless of what form you are in. You want to Power Shift as close as possible to 0 energy. This might change during TBC Classic but we'll need to wait for the beta to test.

Single Target

  1. Maintain
    Faerie Fire (Feral)
    if assigned to it. A Balance Druid should take this responsibility with their improved talent.
  2. Maintain
    Mangle (Cat)
    if assigned to it.
  3. Use
    Shred
    with
    Omen of Clarity
    proc.
  4. Use
    Rip
    at 5 combo points and 80 or more energy.
  5. Use
    Rip
    at 4 combo points and 80 or more energy if
    Mangle (Cat)
    debuff ran out.
  6. Use
    Shred
    .

AoE

  1. For large groups (5+ mobs), it's worth casting
    Hurricane
    . For anything less you will perform your single target rotation.

Power Shifting Example

  1. At 22 energy.
  2. Energy tick brings you to 42 energy.
  3. Use
    Shred
    (Costs 42 energy with talents)
  4. Power Shift. (You now have 60 energy) and if you did it properly, your next energy tick will happen right after you Power Shift which will give you an additional 20 energy.
  5. Power Shift Macro

TBC Feral Dps Druid Best Professions

  1. Enchanting: Provides 4 phyisical damage with two
    Ring - Striking
    .
  2. Alchemy:
    Alchemist's Stone
    can be your bis trinket until Tier 6 if you don't have the mana to Power Shift.
  3. Leatherworking: Provides 80 haste for 30 seconds with
    Drums of Battle
    and 60 attack power for 30 seconds with
    Drums of War
    but they cannot be used while shapeshifted. The Primalstrike set is only slightly behind our recommended Pre-Raid bis gear.
  4. Jewelcrafting: Provides two unique gems for 24 Attack Power and 12 Crit.

TBC Feral Dps Druid Aldor or Scryer

    We recommend going Aldor as a Feral DPS Druid in TBC Classic. The Aldor shoulder enchant,
    Greater Inscription of Vengeance
    , is slightly better than the Scryer
    Greater Inscription of the Blade
    . Aldor also provides a quest that rewards
    Overseer's Signet
    , your bis ring for Pre-Raid gearing.
