DPS Rotation & Cooldowns
During combat you are constantly making decisions for what to cast next. Knowing what to do and when is critical for being effecting at DPS. This rotation guide should help give a basic understanding of what to do, what's most important, and how to prioritize Feral Druid abilities and cooldowns.
Single Target DPS Rotation
When fighting one target, use the following rotation:
- Tigers Fury
- Rip (To apply DoT)
- Ferocious Bite (to refresh Rip (due to Sabertooth))
- Rake (Maintain DoT)
- Brutal Slash (When available)
Bloodtalons Talent Note: If you chose to use this talent for increased DPS, use Regrowth at 4+ Combo Points and make sure at least one charge of Bloodtalons will be used on a finisher. Also, maintain a Moonfire DoT (with lower priority than Rake).
Talent Note: If not using Sabertooth, Rip will need to be more actively maintained, and use Ferocious Bite if almost energy capped and you have time to build Combo Points again for Rip before it expires.
AoE DPS Rotation
When fighting multiple targets, use the following rotation:
- Thrash (To apply DoT)
- Brutal Slash
- Rake (When Brutal Slash is unavailable, apply this on multiple targets)
- Rip or Ferocious Bite (Use judgement based on time target will live)
