Okay.. didnt know that, lol
It makes me curious how many other high ranked ferals are also doing this, and if their logs should be considered legitimate or not.
Wait-wha huh....that sounds pretty crazy. I wonder how many people know about this and are using it in raid encounters. I would think that would basically make any kill that person had 'invalid' given that is a pretty big exploit, if used. Though a question as to Mangle vs Shred for during it? Doesn't matter, its a bug-report and move on.
Take this log for example, 3 rips casted during the whole fight. Yet it had almost a 6 minute uptime, and did 6 million more damage than Rake, hes also 14k above the next person. These should probably be taken down from WoL for this, honestly, and give people that arent using a bug a chance to compete.

During berserk I achieve 40second RIPs which is just crazy, you can also use Soul Swap from a warlock to swap the bleeding and the effect or bug of vortex persists.
Edit: Sent an in game bug report about it though very concerned about putting up an actually post on the wow forums, given someone is bound to not know about it and use it.

I agree with it should probably not be used and should be hotixed really soon. But I found it funny first of all because I HAVE NO FRIGGING CLUE WHAT URSOLS VORTEX HAS TO DO WITH BLEEDS. Secondly it lets you try a rogue'ish playstyle and will make you remember why you chose feral over a rogue
To clarify, I'm not using it to rank myself, just giving an honest opinion on it.

SimC report can be found here: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/1086121/simc...ults_hotw.html
A good majority of players have not cleared TOES heroic yet so realistic numbers might still be important to them. If a raid leader sees someone doing +14k more dps w/ similar gear (one person using an exploit-the other not) they are bound to come down on, and maybe even possibly bench, the person not using the exploit because they can't pull the numbers of the said ranked player who is using the exploit.
Unless you know the feral class well, this isn't a bug you'd catch very easily and it wouldn't surprise me if someone overlooked 'Hey-why was this only cast once or twice' kind of thing.
Maybe one of the enchants has been entered wrong into Simulationcraft like Dancing Steel isn't benefiting from leather spec or something?
