Using Savage Roar during TF is a DPS loss due to the GCD and energy spent during TF not directly benefiting from the 15% buff. Using Mangle during TF is suboptimal because of its poor DPE compared to Shred, Rip, or Rake.
Note: The following is all assuming no 4pc T11 and using Unheeded Warning.
My guess is
might be closer to optimal, but it only leaves 5 GCDs to get Rip in on TF's 6 second duration. Any unlucky misses, dodges, or lack of crits would cripple this opening. Savage Roar so early is primarily to bleed off excess energy, but white damage benefiting from SR, TF, and Unheeded Warning could be a DPS increase. Rake does not benefit from TF because we are trying to maximize Unheeded Warning's proc.
FF/FC > Mangle > Rake > SR > TF > Berserk or Shred once then Berserk* > Shred* > Ravage! > Shred > Rip > Shred spam
*to avoid capping energy
Alternatively, to ensure 5 CPs for Rip during TF, Savage Roar could be delayed until after Tiger's Fury ends.
