is it just me or do you get tunnel vision when you play a feral cat.ive just recently noticed this but it seems like im to busy watching my bleeds to make sure they dont fall off and its like i got tunnel vision or somethin

i havent really tried out resto or boomkin but i was gonna make my main spec feral because im used to playing melee dps(unless playing boomkin is easier then feral cat,then i might just lvl up feral and make my main spec boomkin.but the only actual ranged dps or caster class ive played was a shadowpriest).just something ive kinda noticed lately playing my druid

i know as far as dps goes.boomkin is in better shape at the moment then feral

Every class can develop tunnel vision. Kitty has a "complex" rotation sure but once you get used to it there's a lot of downtime between moves to watch and react. After all, we're energy-limited instead of GCD-limited like a mana class.

And I'm almost dead even with the boomkins in my guild. I'd suggest you're suffering from "grass is greener" syndrome or, if looking at online meters, you're comparing the absolute limit of each class without considering the median.

hmm,maybe its just me then.or i havent gotten used to the rotation(im only lvl 44,but i have played a feral druid up to lvl 64 and i didnt really seem to have a "tunnel vision" problem with it)

but i dont know,all im really doing is questing with it and pvping so i dont really have a clue as far as dps wise how im doing.and all the druids in my guild are resto so as far as comparing boomkin to feral im really only going by what ive heard and what ive looked at

i know as far as pvp goes though.i did warsong gulch once and i really liked feral in pvp,but i dont know.maybe that was the day were the bgs were messed up because i queued once and got in warsong gulch and it said that not enough players joined,then i queued up again and it seemed like there was more alliance then horde.oh and i know this has nothing to do with the topic but,has anyone expieranced a bug with someone who left the guild and it didnt show it on the guild log.someone i know recently transfered and i know normally it would eather say "unknown has left the guild" or it would say the persons name has left the guild.because from looking at the guild log i dont see anything there

In all fairness, though, Kitties are pretty horrible until geared.

My Druid pushes 14-17k DPS on boss fights wearing a mix of epics and heroic blues. My Hunter puts out the same numbers in a mix of blues and greens.

The buff to Swipe helps in AOE situations, but screwing up on a single target fight has a much bigger impact if you're a Kitty than, say, MM Hunter.

At least from personal experience.

Good point, ferals have some odd scaling issues. We always seem to have odd scaling issues and I'm not really sure if the ones now are something obvious (like the lack of weapon damage scaling in TBC) or more hidden.

If I understand it correctly the scaling is do to a few things.

1) Once you have enough haste to smooth out energy regen it really only impacts white damage as more Shreds after a certain point convert into dead CPs. Same idea with crit and CPs except crit will have a larger impact after the makes the rotation smooth point.

2) Mastery while awesome doesn't help white damage or Shred/Mangle.

3) FB is rapidly out scaled by Shred making the rotation stagnant as sitting at 5 CPs starts to happen especially after the issue in 1) is reached.
