Basics of Feral Druid

Feral Druids have received very strong buffs with the release of Dragonflight. Due to the new Talent Tree, Feral Druids are now capable of dealing heavy burst damage in multi-target situations. Feral Druids also do not rely on Convoke the Spirits anymore, which grants them consistent damage which can be very useful. 

Anyways, Feral Druids might be very difficult for new players due to its playstyle. With Dragonflight, you have to mainly focus on keeping all your debuffs on the enemy, which can be potentially up to four debuffs at the same time.

Stat Priority

Stat Choice for Feral Druid

General Stat Priority for Feral Druids with our Build is:

  1. Agility
  2. Critical Strike
  3. Mastery
  4. Versatility
  5. Haste

Agility is your primary stat, meaning that Itemlevel is superior in most cases. Higher Itemlevel will also increase your Stamina and Armor that you gain.

Critical Strike increases the chance for your abilities and spells to deal double damage.

Haste reduces your global cooldown, your time to cast spells, and reduces the cooldown of many abilities.

Versatility grants you a flat damage and healing increase, but also a damage decrease for half of its value.

Mastery increases the damage done by your bleed abilities and finishing moves.

The further we are getting into the expansion, the effects of diminishing returns start to limit your effective gain of your secondary stats. After reaching 30% (by rating) of any given stat, you will start to receive a penalty that reduces the gain from more of the same stat over this treshold.

Stat priority can differ on every character. Make sure to simulate yourself on Raidbots get the perfect results for you.
