    Why do people disarm Feral Drooids in Arena?

    Why do people disarm Feral Drooids in Arena?

    Cant they do dmg then?
    Will they still get combo points from attacks?
    Are they doing less dmg, when they are disarmed?

    I think reckful said in his stream that they do less damage when disarmed, so its actually worth disarming ferals.

    You lose all the stats from your weapon when you are disarmed, same goes for any caster, healers etc...

    disarming feral druids doesn't stop them from using their skills. however, they still scale pretty well with weapon damage, which means that in this case, their attacks deal less damage. it's kind of like silencing an enhancement shaman or ret paladin. they can still use their melee skills, but some of their damage is locked out.
    Because I want to say this every single day but don't want it to get a drag:
    1) The ingame store will only sell timesaver items. It won't affect balance.
    2) No, getting to 100 in half the time isn't pay2win. raids don't start until the second week, everyone has time to get there.
    4) getting charms faster is also not pay2win. getting those is easy, but not everyone has the time or want for dailies.

    As others have stated, the stats on it. Weap dmg scale, stats, Attack Power and pvp power, so the damage goes down. In case on a spriest disarm it could be for the 1-3 sec stun aswell.

    They do less damage, it is the same for WW too. But one quick question, does the same happen to a caster if you disarm them?

    Also a monk might disarm to get a 5% stat bonus if you have a better weapon then he does.

    Feral attacks are based on weapon damage.

    same reason people disarm dks and rets. it might not impact their damage as much as it would a rogue or warrior, but it will still cut their damage a bit. its a lot more useful then disarming a mage or warlock. disarming a resto shaman can actually be useful if i remember correctly since unleash elements is a melee swing.

    This is the correct answer.

    It doesn't stop them generating combo points, attacking, stunning etc. But it pretty severely lowers their damage and is actually a pretty good thing to do during Feral CDs as Ferals don't run with a weapon chain.
