Shifting Perspectives: Firelands gear for the feral cat


Every week, WoW Insider brings you [hide]Shifting Perspectives[/hide] for [hide]cat[/hide] , [hide]bear[/hide] , [hide]restoration[/hide] and [hide]balance[/hide] druids. Welcome to our feral cat edition, brought to you by Chase Hasbrouck, aka Alaron of [hide]The Fluid Druid[/hide] blog. Let the face clawing begin!

Gear, gear, everybody wants gear! Happily, we get our first piece of visible progression gear in, well, forever. A flaming kitty is a raiding kitty … awesome.

This update to my gear list focuses on items from new 4.2 content and bottoms out with ZA gear. If you’re just starting out, the [hide]list compiled a few months ago[/hide] is still quite good.

A few notes before we get to the items:

One of my most common questions is «Which secondary stat is best?» Well, the small [hide]Rip[/hide] nerf, plus the eventual loss of the two-piece T11 bonus once you upgrade into tier 12, knocks mastery down a peg. The buff to [hide]Savage Roar[/hide] boosts haste up a peg. Unfortunately, this means our secondary stats are pretty much even. I’ve tested this extensively, and at the 359 to 378 gear levels, reforging to different stats affects simulated DPS by less than 1%. Personally, I’d recommend sticking with mastery until you break two-piece T11, then try a hit/expertise cap setup; see how it works for you. As always, any fight with little to no off-boss time will favor haste, while fights with large interruptions in DPS time will favor mastery.[hide]Continue reading Shifting Perspectives: Firelands gear for the feral cat[/hide]Filed under: [hide]Druid[/hide], [hide](Druid) Shifting Perspectives[/hide][hide]Shifting Perspectives: Firelands gear for the feral cat[/hide] originally appeared on [hide]WoW Insider[/hide] on Wed, 20 Jul 2011 17:00:00 EST.
