Meh, I wonder when Blizz will address some of the countless Feral Cat issues.Cat DPS is very low, and with 4.1 changes to other classes and improving gear kitties are going to be the worst dps spec by far.

They should only do something if they can fix it without re-granting insta-Gladiator to Feral Druids again like a few months ago.

I completely agree, kitty dps is insanely low compared to the other classes/specs. Every single class has a dps spec above feral on stateofdps.com and some have two, including druids. I don't PvP at all but we aren't viable in either PvE or PvP at this point and Blizzard is just ignoring the feral community like we're the plague.

How do druids have 2 specs above feral?Since when was resto pulling 20K+ DPS?

@lazymangakaThey should fix this problem by deleting rated PVP from the game.Some classes being "insta-gladiators" wasn't a real problems when DK's, warriors, rogues, mages, priests etc could do it for entire expansions but as soon as it was feral druids it was just too much./roll eyes.Seriously, after the nerfs ferals can't break fear, can't break roots, bear self-healing is a joke, and people are still afraid of ferals? I have seen DK self-healing keep pace with full dots now that people actually have resil gear.Stop being bad.

I think the only "problem" with kitty dps is that its actually one of the only classes left that actually takes some skill to play. Yes, usually i can assume that the kitty druids that I get matched to in randoms are going to suck, but I have also been seriously impressed with the amount of dps from kitty druids that know how to play their class.

@Fa110u7Feral DPS was challenging in Wrath, not so much in Cataclysm.

.. also.. Feral DPS isn't low because it takes skill to play... it's low because kitties suck horribly at the moment. Go check out some WOL parses, even the best cats are doing very poorly, even on bosses where the mechanics a well suited for them. With better gear Cats will only fall further behind. With 4.1 skills and ilvl 372 gear cats are the worst dps spec (yes, even behind specs like frostmage or sub rogue). With Firelands gear (4.2) things will be even worse, due to poor scaling.
