DPS Rotation & Cooldowns for Feral Druid in PvE | Latest Patch 7.0.3
The following rotation guide was developed through extensive simulations and play testing with the goal of keeping the guide as simple as possible without sacrificing performance. This guide also included AoE rotations and provides details on when to use special talents and cooldowns.
Single Target Rotation
Combo Point Builders: Follow this priority to generate Combo Points.
Finishing Moves: Follow this priority to spend Combo Points.
- Ferocious Bite to refresh Rip when target at <= 25% health.
- Rip to maintain DoT with 5 CP when target at > 25% health.
- Ferocious Bite with 5 CP to dump excess CP.
Your top priority for spending Combo Points is to maintain Rip by casting it with 5 CP when the target is above 25% health. However, when the target drops below 25% health you should refresh Rip with 5 CP Ferocious Bite. Finally, you can use Ferocious Bite to dump excess Combo Points.
- Feral Thrash to maintain the DoT.
- Rake to maintain the DoT.
- Rip to maintain the DoT.
- Swipe to build CP with 9+ targets.
If there are only a few mobs (2-3), then it is best to just pick a target and continue with the single target rotation while maintaining Rake on each target. With 3+ targets, abandon the single target rotation and maintain the AoE bleed from Feral Thrash and maintain Rake on as many targets as possible. Use Rip on high health targets to dump your Combo Points. Finally, if Rake and Feral Thrash are up on all targets and there are 11+ targets, then you can use Swipe to generate Combo Points and deal some additional AoE damage.
Information on how to incorporate the selected talents from this guide into your rotation is currently being re-worked for 7.0.3. Check back later!
These are effective cooldowns to try and incorporate into most all encounters.
