    On that note, if you have practiced it, you will be able to steamroll very high dps for your gear come cata. Their stated feral model so far has been to keep the "JOHN FUCKING MADDEN" high skill roof rotation, but make it less unforgiving and more simple to pick up so that you basically won't either do utter crap or great damage for your gear depending on skill, but rather decent or great as most other classes work.
    PvE:er to the bone. Plays a druid. Also plays DotA and a whole bunch of other stuff. Listens to mostly everything.

    Wonder actually how the rotation is going to be in cata. I think that with the lower crit they had to sort of making the dots longer so that you still have a chance of keeping them all up since you probably will generate CPs much slower now.

    What IS the block chance for paladins/warriors at level 85, though? Since it's affected by Mastery (as well as Critical Block), their mastery increases their chance to block and the amount blocked. On my beta druid, self-buffed at 85, I'm sitting at just under 23% crit while in bear (would be a little bit higher if I had better gear, but still)... so I'd have 11-12% chance to proc SD per hit, about 1/5th of the chance of proccing SD on live at lvl 80. The question is with mastery levels being high, will warriors/paladins edge ahead in damage mitigation via blocking mechanics?

    *edit* Leaving Pulverize out of this for the moment.

    With "very high dps" you're assuming they get the feral numbers right before Cataclysm gets released. I'm not very optimistic myself, considering ferals have been totally broken, doing crappy dps since Cata alpha.
