On completion of distributing talent points, let’s dive into actual combats. What should a Feral Cat Druid pay attention to in raid?
As a Cat , your teammates may be prejudiced against you, ignore it and prove yourself by your strength.
It is very important to establish close relationships with your raid leader.
The Leader of the Pack generates irreplaceable melee critical strikes, which will improve your strength greatly.
Feed yourself and add buffs before the combat.
You can enter the war stealthily, crouch down and choose right skills at the very beginning.
Stealth doesn’t mean that you have to bury your head under the ground. Don’t provoke the boss before the tank fires at it.
Don’t be devoted to throwing all skills at first, because in the first 10 sec, the boss’ hatred is not stable, it may aim at you if you beat it fiercely instead of focusing on the tank.
Keep a vast field of vision in combat and see what you can do, anyway, DPS is not the only choice for you.
Sometimes, the group leader may arrange you to deal with some additional monsters. Don’t be in a rush when switching to another target.
Iif you have a priest to help heal, you are more likely to survive.
Learn from others’ experiences from various forums and sites, after all, one cannot engage in all kinds of practical combats.
Certainly, if you believe everything you read, better not read. You should make appropriate adaptations in the light of your group conditions.
All right, you have become the one with the most DPS now, and also been approved by all teammates.
Don’t laugh at the teammates, who have prejudices towards you. Without them, you couldn’t have made such great achievement.
Boldly ask for the equipment you really need. Don’t allow rogues to ride roughshod over you. Likewise, you are an excellent DPS class.
Don't let up after winning several successes, the road ahead of the Feral Cat Druid is still long.
Don't get your own way and look down upon teammates.
What’s more, don’t discriminate against new Feral Cat Druids.
The higher you stand, the farther you see. Come on, run atilt at the NO.1 in WMO rankings.
In a word, you must have love.
