If you have any ideas about how to improve this opener, feel free to contact me.

Cat Chat - Emergency Cat Chat

in Feral Feral
In this (emergency) Cat Chat Xanzara and Guiltyas discuss the 5 minute old feral hotfixes and their notes for the future. Quick summary: These are not primarily number changes, they don’t intended to buff/nerf us. Its more about gameplay feel. These type of changes would typically occur on PTR or during Betas - it is very rare that Blizzard do these kinds of changes mid-patch via hotfixes. We should probably be grateful that Blizzard is at all willing to make these types of adjustments right now and we look forward to near guranteed “mini-rework” in a future patch.

Defensive Trinkets

in Guardian Guardian
Tanking trinkets in BFA suck for survivability. That’s fine, you probably shouldn’t be relying on your trinkets to survive anyway. Remember that your main stat is good defensively in this expansion, and take whatever high item level trinkets with your main stat as the base stat that you can. Know what secondary stats are good for your spec, and try to get trinkets with your main primary as a base and main secondary.

The Emerald Dreamcatcher Prepatch Guide

in Balance Balance
The Emerald Dreamcatcher Recently, The Emerald Dreamcatcher has seen some updates in Simulationcraft Modules. These updates made us see something we were missing prior with The Emerald Dreamcatcher which was an inability to have virtually 100% Empowerment uptime. This legendary requires precise casting and may not be be the optimal choice in all situations or for all players. The legendary itself relies on maintaining a 5 second buff and casting combos to maintain the buff while at the same time managing dots, empowerments, and the encounter itself.
