World of Warcraft buffs Feral Druids, uncovers secret demon goat pet

    
10

Feral Druids are enjoying a round of hearty buffs this week in World of Warcraft.

A hotfix yesterday increased the damage of several skills for fuzzy players and allowed Berserk to persist through shapeshifting. Blizzard said that it’s prepping another hotfix that will “widen the power gap a bit” between players at levels 110 and 120. This is being done due to problems with PvP not being as balanced as it should.

The secret-dredging community has discovered a hidden pet in the new expansion named Baa’l. This demonic goat requires a 14-step chain to get that culminates with an epic pet battle.

And if you’re looking to be easily amused, check out the following parody of Battle for Azeroth’s opening cinematic by Carbot Animations.

loL! I love the video, the sounds used to do various things during the video, the numbers flying over characters heads as they’re fighting, simply fun and amusing. Well done on their part.

I’m still sitting here wondering why my warlock TANK pets are so squishy.

So much this. Too much health funneling and not enough hand of Gul’danning!

Hunter pets are feeling the same.

I think all pets got nerfed all around.

For hunter, ive actually found it easier to keep my pet alive by using the NON-tank pets, the ones with Life Leech. The heal they get from that makes up for some of the extra squishy feeling they have now.

The buffs for Druid were so weak and doesn’t address the single target damage disparity between them and all other DPS classes. Awful.

The loudest gripe currently has been about feral AOE. 15-20% damage buffs to AoE this patch are quite nice.

Im sure they will get around to tweaking their single target dps if its needed as well. Being a DoT/Bleed based DPS, its easy to feel like your damage is sub par when fighting along side other DPS classes, especially vs enemies that die so fast that your bleeds dont have the chance to do their full damage. Affliction Warlocks can feel the same.

Ending at around 4k after a long boss fight while classes with way less to pay attention to and less gear do double or more shows there’s a problem. The tank out DPSed me the other day and it just feels bad.

Completely agree. The “buffs” were just a slap in the face. It’s not just our AOE. It’s bleeds and general mechanics. Energy regen is atrocious and I sit there doing nothing for way too long. On my Rogue there’s always something to do. I’m glad I swapped to DH because they likely won’t change anything for at least another month.

Awesome! Feral has been my go to spec for druid since Wrath, waaaay before it was cool.
