Purr and Roar - Named after my original two button macro set, this works by casting “PURR” as a combo point builder until you reach five combo points, then finishing with “ROAR” as the spender macro. NOTE: I no longer use ROAR. I have Rip and Ferocious Bite on their own buttons. With Sabertooth as the level 1 talent, Ferocious Bite will add 20 seconds to Rip (if firing with the full 5 combo points.) Spamming FB after the first Rip keeps rip up indefinitely. If you prefer you an use the simple macro, add it or use the original Roar and it will rotate although not as effectively.
REVISED 2/15/20 I had switched to Balance at the beginning of BFA, but it had been nerfed recently and I really missed playing Feral. So I’ve spent the past few days revising this macro set. The biggest change and one that requires a little more effort is the switch of the spender macro to a simple macro.
PLEASE NOTE: Roar is now a simple macro. Start Roar with the SHIFT modifier to apply Rip. Then spam the assigned macro button. Ferocious Bite then keeps Rip up and active until you stop your rotation. If Rip drops off, apply the SHIFT modifier again and repeat. If you don’t want to use simple macro, I’ll post the original ROAR in a comment below. ALTERNATIVELY, you could make it a three button setup with Rip and Ferocious Bite as their own buttons, something I started doing with my 17 (or so) button MMO mouse.
ALSO REVISED: Talent Choices - Changed the first tier from Lunar Inspiration to Sabertooth. Changed the last two tiers are now Brutal Slash and Bloodtalons. TALENTS 2X1X122.
Regrowth is part of the macro set, but you could delete those three lines from Purr if you didn’t want Regrowth included. Having it included improves survivability. And while it doesn’t appear to use any energy while in cat form, it slows the use of energy down, which is not a bad thing. These macros do tend to run out of energy during prolonged encounters and so you will get an occasional “hang.” You can expect to wait for energy levels to rise enough to cast the next attack.
Changes from the previous set include:
- Removed the Lunar Inspiration talent along with Moonfire
- Attacks are prioritized for better energy conservation. This minimizes the “hang” from low energy during prolonged encounters. It hasn’t seemed to affect DPS and I experienced an increase in DPS because you are casting more attacks over any given time.
- For AOE situations, I like to spam Thrash and Brutal Slash. Thrash is expensive, energy wise (40,) so I have left it out of the macro. You could add
/cast [combat] Thrashinto the Purr macro if you want it included, but expect more hangs when spamming Purr.
- As far as talents, the level 30 and the level 60 talents are optional. The other talents are necessary for the macro to work.
- Make SURE you have the latest version of TimothyLuke’s Gnome Sequencer Enhanced addon. None of these work without it. You can find the latest version on the CurseForge Website:
- Please post a message here if you have questions or want to provide feedback. Testing feedback is welcome. For continuity, I exclusively test on the single target Raider’s Training Dummy in Stormwind.
- To better monitor your Combo Points level, I recommend the Simple Combo Points addon. https://wow.curseforge.com/projects/simple-combo-points Or get a WeakAura.
So here is Purr. Spam until you reach 5 Combo Points (for maximum DPS.) Hold down SHIFT as a modifier to cast Beserk for maximum burst DPS.
and Roar. REMEMBER TO HIT SHIFT WHEN YOU INITIALLY CAST TO APPLY RIP. To make a simple macro, hit enter to open the chat console in game, then type /m to open the simple macro app. Click new, pick an icon and name it Roar, then paste in the following code.
/cast [mod:shift] Rip
/cast [nomod] Ferocious Bite
