welcome :)its nice to see kitty back on herepersonally im using http://www.wowhead.com/talent#0ZfMGfourzbfzMcz atm - and glyph of rake (soling and trash)i dont really rate predatory strikes (how often do you heal in combat as kitty)or stampede for raiding - not used often enoughinfected wounds for add controllthick hide is great for emergencys if the tank goes downwish i had the points for perseverance but i dontone thing id like to ask about tho:i use 3/3 furor for when im low on energy - with the mana regen from LoTP i have enough to switch out on low energy and stack lacerate as well as my cat dotsim not entirely sure about this though1) high threat2) does switching out drop my bleed damage or is this set when its applied?3) does mastery bonus affect lacerate?4) if 2 is "it drops it" and 3 is no - is it actually more dps?

No, mastery does not affect Lacerate damage. When you switch to bear form you proc the Bear's mastery, Savage Defense. The two different forms have two different masteries.Considering the fact that A) cats tend to generate a lot of threat through their high bleed damage and B) Lacerate clearly states on it that it 'generate high threat' your 'pop into bear form when low on energy' idea is not advisable. You should remain in cat form letting yourself melee attack until you have the energy up to continue applying the priority buff/bleed/debuffs.

Nice 101 Guide. Could have been more extensive tough, with tips, tricks, gemming, enchants and BiS pre-raid gear. But I guess is a good starting point for people beggining on the wonderful world of bleeds, om nom noms and fun stay-on-your-toes dps.Welcome Alaron!, hope to see more of your columns! Ferals need some love too.
