So what exactly makes feral dps so hard? >_>

I've always heard feral druids were one of the most difficult classes to play well in pve as dps.

Upon looking up their rotation, it really doesn't seem difficult at all. Not as easy as mutilate rogues maybe but nowhere near as hard as fury warriors or enh shamans.

Fury is...kind of hard?

I don't know. It's a little harder than arms, I suppose.

Compared to most other classes, yes. Enhance has a ****ton of buttons and every one of them has a different cooldown, fury is easy if you half ass it but doing good DPS is very reliant on knowing how to time cooldown and when to pool rage. Maybe it isn't super difficult but it seems that way compared to the total faceroll-fest arms is.

Am I the only one finding Festerblight a bit harder to master than Fury or Enhance? -_-

How so?

I'm leveling a druid atm and I'm going resto MS at 90 but I want feral as my dps OS because boomkin's rotation looks absolutely f***ing excruciating.(not excruciatingly difficult, excruciatingly annoying)

The feral druid needs to (not necessarily in priority order):

-Keep Faerie Fire up (if no one else is doing so)
-Keep Rake up
-Keep Rip up
-Keep Savage Roar up
-use Shred for combo points
-Use Tiger's Fury on cooldown
-Use Berserk on cooldown

And that's not getting into possible talent selections, or abilities granted by Symbiosis.

It's fairly complex - I'd say more complex than enhance because cats need to keep track of energy and combo points, whereas shamans have a straight priority list of cooldowns.
