So I hurt my hand a while ago, and though I have most of the use back in my hand, it isn’t what it used to be. Before the injury I was a top level raider, performing as feral dps and off-tank for my raid. Since I came back my hand seems to really be slowing me down. The forums here have helped me make simple macros to help me get back to the performance I used to have. For instance, for guardian I’m pretty comfortable using the following:
/castsequence [mod:shift] frenzied regeneration;reset=30 Cenarion Ward, savage defense, maul, maul, savage defense, maul, savage defense, maul
/castsequence reset=5/target lacerate, Thrash, Lacerate, Lacerate, pulverize
/castsequence reset=0 !mangle
I control the longer cool downs such as barkskin and survival instincts separately, but all bound to one button via a mod:shift etc macro. Then I macro berserk to be more of a survival cool down in and of it’s self using:
/cast Frenzied Regeneration
which I intend to include health stones/pots into to make it even more aggressive of a cool down button to press.
So far using those macros I haven’t had a problem tanking. I feel a bit soft in some instances or when there is a lot of magic, but my gear level is still pretty low.
What I need help with though is feral. My damage is just crap it seems. I know a cast sequence isn’t the best way to handle cat dps. There are too many random occurrences. Still I’m using the following:
/cast [nostealth, nocombat] Prowl
/castsequence [stealth] rake
/castsequence reset=target shred, Savage Roar, Shred, Shred, Shred, Rip, Rake, Shred, shred, Shred, Rake, Shred, Shred, Shred, Rip, Shred, Shred
/swapactionbar 1 2
/console autounshift 0
/castsequence [@player, nomod, combat] Healing Touch
/console autounshift 1
/swapactionbar 2 1
and a tigers fury/berserk/berserk/Incarnation/trinkets macro to allow me to control tigers fury separately from the macro.
so I guess my question is this: Is there a way to break the cast sequence down to give me more control and hopefully higher dps? Somehow have shred and rake on one button so I can spam it, then my finishing moves on another? I’m even open to suggestions on making my guardian better too. I’m really playing at a disadvantage here and could use all the help I can get.
I’m really open to trying anything to get back in the game where I was, but my hand just isn’t what it used to be.
Thanks to anyone willing to even consider helping.
