Hello there current and aspiring Furballs

Having observed the recent decline in numbers of active PvP'ers and after seeing a few posts (on the official forums) filled with basic questions about how to PvP as a Feral and never seeing an answer that really satisfied me, I've decided to write a fairly comprehensive Feral PvP Guide. This guide includes not only basic things like gearing, gemming and enchanting, it also takes a look at how to deal damage, feral gameplay in general and some other specifics.


I chose not to write it on the forums as spreading it elsewhere would have meant a lot of extra work and I wouldn't have been able to design it the way I wanted. Link to PDF:

https://jumpshare.co...7J5Eltihn565Av3 (updated to v1.4)

Hopefully, this guide will answer most of your questions regarding Feral PvP. Should you have more questions, have an idea on what else to include or would like to tell me how wrong I am on everything, feel free to reply to me here and I'll answer as best I can. I will try to keep it updated, be that for a new patch or inbetween.

Enjoy!

minor error: skin glyph works for spells too, not just meleehits (afaik)

edit: in the macro section i wouldnt suggest binding incarnation to berserk since u basically lose 1,5sec berserk + tactical use of incarnation to stealth would be awful.
Instead, macro tiger's fury ahead of berserk to never "forget" using it when u start zerking.

good guide overall

I mostly went off of memory when writing, and admittedly didn't check whether the glyph actually works against spells too now (as it didn't used to). Could be, I'll update the guide tomorrow as I've discovered a few other things that I want to re-word.

Edit: ghetto checked, reduces spell crit too now so I'll update it accordingly.

As far as the macro is concerned, it really is just an example. Losing 1 second (not 1.5) of Berserk is not going to make a huge difference.  People can still bind Incarnation separately to use it without zerk, though let's be honest here, that's not going to happen a whole lot - especially if you're not fighting at high ratings.

You're the new Conviq. At least he brought up decent points from time to time.
