"(Hint: That doesn't always mean maximizing your personal DPS.)"No, but when mechanics favor feral druids, that means you ABSOLUTELY should be doing this.See: "Rip DOT Crits for 841,889" damage at 9:35-9:58 on nefarian here:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3MQyH78aqT4And yes- that is a rip dot. You see multiple 800k crits and 400k non crits ticking off, using the mechanics of the fight to roll a massive ticking bomb like there is no tomorrow.I know you didn't cover nefarian, but I put it up there to show what is possible. Because sometimes I think people tend to forget that a dps is primarily and always a damage dealer. Yes, a dead dps does no dps. Yes, not using your stuns or interrupts or cc's means you are not being a team player. However, a truly great dps does stun, interrupt, cc, stay out of the fire, use a brez - and STILL utilizes every single microsecond to pump out as much dps as they possibly can.And when you get to the point where your rips are critting for almost a million damage, then you know you are doing something very, very right. ;)

While my druid will most likely never see that fight, it's good to know that there is at least some reason to stack druids in bleeding edge content. Even if it's just because of cheesy mechanics, at least we're in a good place.

It's a very rng heavy fight, since the damage buff builds up faster the more you have, and getting MC'd twice or even 3 times in a row will let you continue to stack the buff to silly amounts.
