Some people have a hard time evaluating the talents purely on mechanics and would get caught up in "omg big numbers!!!!" so I'm just trying to clear that up a little.
Hey back to dpsing again finally! been tanking for way too long now... curse of my 10man
I have some troubles executing DoC in the start of the fight atm, really want that huge DoC buffed rip and rake out with trinket procs.
anyone who would care to explain to me their DoC opener.
i dropped my 4set for 1xwarforged and 1 heroic piece instead of 2x normal tier cause of sims, but is 4 set needed to make DoC on pull easier ?
been playing hotw for a while now, but gets really boring!
any help will be appriciated
Passive roar + zero dot management is feral dumbing. I bet 6.0 rogue dps > feral dps without questions.
If we do end up with snapshotting removed, and a simplified rotation once we're in beta, it might be worth becoming vocal on the beta forums; much like we were on the ptr forums regarding this tiers 4 set.
Well even if it does have some grain of truth to it you have to remember, this someone's interpretation and recollection of what one blizzard employee said. There's a lot of room for the original intent of the message to be changed in that process. He may have something like "We're considering..." that could've gotten completely omitted, or maybe he was misinformed as to the current status of that decision.
Edit: Confirmation from Ghostcrawler:
DoTs and Bleeds are different mechanics.
Also GC is retarded, the only reason DoT strength trackers made Warlocks faceroll was because of Pandemic, without that it would have actually required thought.

You think they will keep snapshotting bleeds but remove it for dots when the reason they are removing it from dots are "Dot snapshotting translated into mods telling you when to press the buttons."? They will obviously remove it from bleeds as well since the equivalent argument can be made.
Real shame though. What fun is there in only keeping two bleeds + SR up. Single target rotation will be completely trivial unless the new moonfire dot spice things up.
DoTs have had many changes in the past between snapshotting, not snapshotting, etc but bleeds have always stayed the same.
The reason DoT and bleed effects typically have been dealt with separately or described with different terminology is due to the classes that typically put them up.
When most people think of DoT's, they likely associate them with mana users... unlike bleeds, which are associated with melee. Their separation is generally around haste, since magic DoT's are affected by haste and melee ones are not. However, the issue of snap-shotting encompasses both realms of magical and physical DoT's. One issue with snap-shotting is that your actual damage output is at the mercy of so many variables that most people cannot calculate them on the fly, which is why that tweet mentioned it leading people to just rely on an add-on to tell them what to do.
Honestly, how many Ferals here use an add-on or a specific WeakAura to tell them the power of their bleeds and/or when to apply them?
Feral rotation will be much simpler now. Not really too happy with that, but ahh well... We can't keep being rocket scientists, now can we? xD
If bleeds don't snapshot I could literally fall asleep playing feral. And yea I'm pretty sure every feral that raids, even casually, uses an addon or wa to show bleed strength.
I'm pretty much done with this expac anyway, especially if the one thing that keeps me playing, enjoying my class, gets gutted into a whack-a-mole style rotation.
