    EDITED 03/21/17 Edited to correct some erroneous “]]” that imported incorectly Ty to the users for pointing this out.

    This macro will support any Talent selection including Honor talents, however you must be aware that the Finishing abilities are all on modifiers, you cannot just turn on AHK and let it run and expect it to do anything other than build combo points.
    Shift=Savage Roar
    Alt=Rip
    Ctrl=Ferocious Bite
    *with the latest version you must continue to hold the mod button for it to also cast Rake after each finisher (if the duration on Rake is >5 seconds you can generally just hold the mod button long enough for the finisher to fire and not Rake, but on the next finisher hold it long enough for Rake to also fire)

    you need to decide when and what finisher to use based on your talents, what type of fight ect. I have also included an AOE macro that I only ever use if I hav e not taken the talent Brutal Slash and there are 4+ targets.

    Version 1 of this macro is the “kitchen sink” version and includes long CDs like Incarnate and Berserk version 2 does not have those and must be manually fired, by default it should use the “kitchen sink” version (change it to version 2 to control your long CDs yourself).

    *As promised I spent some time at the “Raiders training dummy” all of these are 5 min burn tests (except the PVP setup, that one I wanted to measure pure burst.
    the Druid that I ran this on stats:
    ilvl=885
    Legos equipped= Ailuro Pouncers and Ekowrath, Creator of Worlds
    Crit=34%
    Haste=16%
    Mast=56%
    vers=2%

    Builds:
    2321322=336K
    1321322=301K
    2321122=306K
    2321123=303K* (this is a multi-target Brutal Slash build but this test was single target)
    2321222=604k* (peak damage, 20-30 second window PVP build)

    Please test this and give me feedback.

    Thank you for your time on this. What DPS do you get?

    I tried this and Rip, ferocious Bite, Savage roar was not activating

    Throwing my numbers and stats at the forum probably won’t help much as my gear is likely much different than most users. I am running the Boots and Ring with a 895 item lvl, and to be honest I have not had the time to just sit down at a training dummy and run a 5 minute burn. I’ve ran this in a few Mythic + runs some LFR and a Nighthold Normal. I change my spec often depending on the fight and number of mobs so the result vary greatly. On Trash with CD’s I can peak at over 2mil, on fights where you have to swap alot without much bleed uptime I can bottom out at 250k. For the sake of the forum and to give a baseline idea though I will sit down and run a few 5 minute burns on training dummies using the various specs alts that I use and post the numbers when I get a chance.

    As for the Finishers not working, well that is a problem and the kind of feedback that I am looking for. Can you give me a little history here though?

    How are you trying to use them? i.e. you have combo points and you have enough energy to use the ability? one of the reasons that I have these baked into the macro rather than just having them on a separate key is that they will not always immediately fire as you likely won;t have energy for it so you may have to hold the modifier key for a second or 2 to pool enough energy to spend.

    Are you using a program like AHK or synapse to run the macro or are you just manually pecking at it?

    In your WoW keybindings do you have anything bound to that same mod key? i.e. if your macro is on the #1 button do you have anything bound to [shift]1 [alt]1 and or [ctrl]1, if you do you need to either delete those bindings, or move your macro to another button that does not have bindings as the keybinds take precedence over [modifiers] in a macro.

    So let me give you an example of what a typical single target long fight may look like for me running the cookie cutter 2321322 build:

    pre-pull cast Regrowth(proc bloodtalons) pre-pot(prolonged power), start the macro at pull (I use Synapse with a very slow repeat. 0.17) it should open with a Rake and will likely also hit with a AF(artifact) before you can react, and assuming you started with 0 cp you should have 3-4 press and hold shift until Savage Roar casts, then release the shift key, hit berserk and let it quickly build 5cp, press and hold alt until Rip casts. release alt and let it build again…(Now this is where gear will play a huge roll and you need to make decisions going forward, you likely need to refresh Savage Roar again which I usually will do with a full 5cp, then Rip again with a full 5cp and the following cycle I can usually squeeze a 5cp Ferocious Bite in without losing my uptime on Roar and Rip. if you cannot just alternate the Roar Rip cycle) at 25% your Ferocious Bites refresh your Rip so make sure that you have a 5cp Rip up and just cycle Roar, Bite, Bite from then on.

    Please let me know if you are still having issues.

    Thanks re reading that I see that the finishers are set to other keys. I was just using 1 button manually.

    I’ve pushed a new update to streamline things a bit. I think this is as close as I am going to come to making the best use of Bloodtalons/Regrowths. if you talent into Bloodtalons any time you press and hold a modifier while the sequence is running the following should happen:

    Shift= Savage Roar and then Rake
    alt= Regrowth, then Rip, then Rake
    ctrl= Regrowth, then Ferocious Bite, then Rake

    Without Bloodtalons talent Regrowth will cast on procs
    Shift=Savage Roar and then Rake
    alt=Rip then Rake
    ctrl=Ferocious Bite then Rake

    please keep in mind that you must press and hold the modifier button (shift/alt/ctrl) until all of the spells have fired, though to maximize efficiency you should watch your Rake bleed time and decide if you need to actually refresh it or not for each finishing sequence. If you do not then release the modifier before Rake fires, and if you do then hold it long enough for it to fire.

    Please let me know how it works for you.

    nice macro

    Thank you very much. I am going to push another small update this weekend sometime. I’ve been busy with the wife in the hospital. But I have noticed some grammatical syntax errors in my macros that I need to correct. in several cases I have mistakenly called “OR” conditions when they should be “and” conditions. I am also trying to figure a way to work a single Rake cast into the mix anytime you change targets.

    Edited the original ST macro 02/21/17 to have the macro Rake each time a fresh target is selected in combat (untested) and to remove some syntax issues where I was calling “or” conditions rather than “and” conditions.

    I dunno why the Website is not updating my “Edit” but here is the latest version that now correctly applies Rake at each target swap.

    Just curious – why do you turn off the auto regrowth with Bloodtalons?

    "/cast [notalent:7/2, @player, combat] Regrowth",

    I am new to feral and just trying to understand.

    Cheers – this is a very cool macro.
