Oct 29th 2010 8:19PM Why is no one hitting on the REAL issue with rebirth right now?
Only 1 rebirth can be used per fight, it locks all others out of using it until the next fight.
This is a huge undocumented change which I haven't seen any blue posts on.

Feb 9th 2010 3:44PM I've been feral pretty much since I started my main (and first ever toon) druid toward the beginning of BC.
Good article, but there are a couple things I don't entirely agree with. One, as many have pointed out, is the weapon enchant. I use mongoose not only because of the (arguable) boost toward dps but also for tanking.
One of the pros of feral dps you stated is that they can switch form fast and tank (if the tank dies, if you pull aggro, etc.). Mongoose gives agil, which is also one of the greatest stats for bears right now. Berserking, however, takes away armor, which makes for worse tanking. Many ferals aren't like me I know, having a dps and tank feral spec; and using the same weapon for both; so if you only want to be a rogue-on-4-legs berserking might be about as good.
My other issue is the glyphs. I use shred, savage roar, and berserk glyphs.
You said to replace glyph of shred with glyph of mangle if you are the mangle bot.
Glyph of shred and glyph of rip do the same thing- increase the duration of the rip debuff. The difference is that GOR gives a straight 4 sec increase and GOS gives a 2 sec increase each time shred is used up to a max of 6 sec. (3 shreds). Since shred is a filler move you're almost sure to get those 3 shreds in before rip is down in a more normal boss fight. This makes GOS last 2 seconds longer than GOR, making it a more valuable glyph imo.
As for using berserk instead of rip for my other glyph, I can get enough time in my rotation without GOR, so I went with something that gave me a longer berserk (which is always fun :) )
I realize this was written for those starting out at the spec, your non-mangle bot suggestions would work great for them, giving them more room to breathe.
Mar 5th 2009 7:05PM I used a simple addon called explorercoords, which shows a dot on the map for each area left to be explored.
Feb 6th 2009 2:36PM I like where you're going with better scale for haste. As kitty dps I don't see much use for haste at all. I would like to see it used to make energy regenerate faster or something. I find myself sitting and waiting for more energy for my next move too often when berserk and Tiger's Fury are on cd.
