[5.0] Da Bears!

Postby Skye1013 » Tue Sep 04, 2012 4:56 pm

Ok, so I'm only lvl 65, which means I don't have everything bear related, but does anyone know what sort of a priority/rotation bears have with 5.0?

I've currently got a 6/3/6 rotation for AoE (Thrash, Swipe, Mangle) but not sure if that's going to be altered at higher levels.

For single target, I usually Mangle > Other single target ability I can't remember the name of > Maul (I think, it's the rage dump that's off the gcd similar to Heroic Strike for Wars.)

you will want to use lacerate, due to the proc nature of 25% on hit resetting mangle
more mangles = more rage = more SD uptime

thrash also applies weakened blows
so on harder bosses, you will want to use it
for just normal aoe, your 6/3/6 should be fine, weaving in mauls during high rage if you have that glyph, if not do SD just for extra dodge to reduce damage taken

Lacerate! That's the one. Mangle > Lacerate > Maul is my usual single target.

Edit: It's not quite as smooth a "rotation" as the AoE, since Maul is off the gcd. Do bears not get any more abilities between 65-85 that are weaved in besides damage reduction cds?

sounds right, just add in thrash for weakened blows if raiding or on a hard hitting boss and make sure you are weaving in SD on those

Not sure when you get Faire Fire, but you weave that into the rotation too (lower priority than lacerate, but gives a weakened armour debuff). When you are tanking something that may kill you, maul is probably not worth the rage cost (better to use rage for Savage Defense or Frenzied Regen).

I've got FF. I usually pull with it, then forget about it after that XD.

If you want to, you could use the Ovale add-on, it's like CLC-ret and identifies you best next damage move, while tracking CDs. There's a bear script for it that's been updated for 5.0.4:

Mangle, Lacerate, Thrash and FFF are the constant use abilities. Obviously, whenever the opportunity is there, your priority is to Mangle, and depending on if threat/dps or rage income is your priority, your other things change. Obviously Maul is there for Rage spending on things that tickle. If you want to min/max there are a few bigger rules, but as a general rule, that should leave you in a decent spot.

http://theincbear.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=697 if you're able to separate the things that pertain to tanking serious content will serve you decently enough.
